Do you suffer from dry and itchy skin? Are you embarrassed by scars, blemishes or peeling skin? Let the suffering stop and show off your beautiful skin! Below are tips to help you in your journey to good skin care. You can get the beautiful, glowing and healthy skin you always wanted!
In order to get that glowing skin that everyone wants, make sure you drink plenty of water each day. The recommended amount to drink is eight glasses. The water that you drink keeps your skin hydrated and supple and allows any toxins that might build up to be washed away instead.
Be very gentle to the area around your eyes, especially when removing eye makeup. The skin of the area eye is extremely thin and fragile, and the first area to show signs of aging. A folded facial tissue soaked with a few drops of baby oil, unfolded, and pressed for several seconds on each closed eyelid, followed by slowly wiping outward from the inner corner of the eye, will remove eye makeup safely, gently, and cheaply.
In the winter, you will notice that the air is very cold and dry, making moisturizing integral to your routine. Moisturizing your face reduces the formation of dry skin cells, which can clog your pores and cause cysts and lesions. Additionally, moisturizer improves flexibility of your face, so that you are comfortable during the day.
In order to have healthy, clean skin, you must stay hydrated. That means drinking around 8 cups of water every day. If you don’t drink enough water, your face will become oily which will lead to pimples, acne, and other unpleasant things. Not only will you look better by staying hydrated, but you’ll feel better too!
To prevent breakouts of acne, try using facial care products that come in a spray-on applicator. This will keep you from transferring bacteria, oils and potentially irritating substances from your hands to your face while applying things like sunscreen or moisturizer. Having a more bacteria-free face can in turn reduce your chances of developing pimples.
If you use bath oils, it is best to apply them only after you have rinsed your skin and gently towel-dried it. Using oils in the bath water may trap cleansing ingredients on the surface of your skin, causing dehydration and irritation. By waiting until you are clean and dry, you can ensure that your skin is better prepared to absorb the nourishing properties of the oil.
If you have sensitive skin, avoid facial scrubs that feel gritty or grainy; they will only make your skin retreat in pain. Instead, wash with a gentle castile soap (Dr. Bronner’s is a quirky but reliable brand) and pat gently dry after rinsing. Your sensitive skin is very reactive to its environment and needs the gentlest of treatment. Using grainy scrubs, or especially any products containing AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) will further aggravate your skin’s sensitivity, creating redness and irritation.
Nobody should have to go through life being embarrassed by his or her skin. Using the tips above will help you get rid of blemishes, scars and dry, peeling skin. The tips will also help you have nourished, healthy skin that is radiant, beautiful and ready for the world to see!
