Beauty with Health
Taking care of the skin especially the facial skin can be really tricky especially if you have the most sensitive skin. This can be a problem as sensitive skin gets easily irritated when in contact with harsh ingredients and abrasive objects. This makes choosing of facial products all the more difficult and crucial.
Still, there are basic tips that one must know in taking care of the skin.
Never ever sleep while still wearing your make-up
This is perhaps the most cardinal rule when it comes to facial care. Make-up that is left on overnight can clog the pores and trap the dead skin cells inside with the hair follicles. This may cause blackheads and even acne when not treated early. In addition, chemicals on the skin will prevent the skin from regenerating and breathing while you are asleep.
This is another tip that one must not forget if one wants flawless and supple skin throughout life. Remember that the sun can damage the skin. It may not be visible when you are young but the effects will definitely by seen in later years. In fact, the sun is the number one reason for wrinkles and lines. It is also the one responsible for the appearance of brown spots, not only on the face but also on the shoulders and on the back.
There is also of course the danger of developing skin cancer from direct rays of the sun. As uncommon as it may seem, tumors can actually develop on the face. This is why putting on sunscreen whether you plan to stay outside for long or not, whether it is summer or winter, is highly recommended.
Always keep your skin clean
Although you would not really know for sure if your skin is clean or not, it is always a good idea to practice a little bit of hygiene just so that you can prevent your skin from the onset of acne.
Although some people may survive with only water as facial wash, most people would use soap or cleansers to help keep their skin clean. Experts recommend that people use mild cleansers on their faces. Remember that the face is very sensitive to irritations.
Women who wear make-up should also include toners, moisturizers and make-up removers in their regimen. These are essentials in keeping acne and pimples at bay.
Moisturize your skin
Although most people do not actually use moisturizer, this is another essential when it comes to taking care of your skin. This helps the skin regenerate and prevents the development of wrinkles and lines.
But why go with the medical when you can do it in the natural way? Below are some of the ways that you can take care of your skin without spending so much.
Exfoliation in the shower
Exfoliation is one of the things that help keep your skin, smooth and silky. The process removes the dead cells from the skin, thereby preventing the buildup of dead cells in the pores.
Exfoliation can actually be done before you take a bath everyday. You just need a dry brush. Make sure that it has soft bristles; otherwise, you will end up irritating the skin. Brush in circular movements to also help in the circulation of the skin. This process however can only be done in certain parts of the body. Sensitive areas like the face may only be irritated.
Use fruits and veggies
Cliche as it is, fruits and vegetables really do have properties that help in keeping the skin healthy. What is more you don’t have to eat them. There are fruits and veggies that you can put directly to your skin like the tomato and the cucumber.
Of course, eating an apple a day will definitely keep the dermatologists away as apple contains natural nutrients that are really good for the body, especially for the skin. High fiber fruits like bananas are also highly recommended as they are able to improve on digestion and metabolism.
Not only will water help you in washing your face, drinking lots of it will also help you get rid of the toxins in the body. In fact, one of the secrets to having great skin is drinking lots of water. Experts recommend at least 8 glasses a day. For people who have digestive problems, about 10-15 glasses is already enough.
Another way to get rid of the toxins in the skin is to regularly do physical activities whether they like working out in the gym or doing sports activities.
Do you know that sugar can actually make your skin sag and develop wrinkles? This happens when the excess sugar go to the bloodstream and sticks to the protein.
