How To Keep Your Skin Looking
-Younger And Healthier
The one thing that everyone remembers about you is your
face. You will want to have the best looking skin you can. Do not waste your money on expensive
products: follow these simple tips to improve your look naturally.
Always wash off your makeup before going to sleep in order to
maintain a good complexion. Removing makeup stifles bacteria growth on your skin, and does away with problem
causing oils. Your skin heals itself during the night as you sleep.
Before bed, use a bit of humectant-infused moisturizer on your face.
You will sweat while sleeping, due to an increase in body temperature. A moisturizer with humectant can help
hydrate skin that would otherwise get dry.
Use a makeup sponge to apply your sunscreen very effectively. Using
the sponge as a sunscreen applicator helps spread the lotion evenly and helps you avoid having to experience the
greasy texture. Dabbing with a sponge will also help the sunscreen penetrate into your skin, ensuring maximum
absorption while keeping your hands clean and dry.
Drink lots of water each day to enjoy healthy skin.
Beauty starts from the inside out, and staying hydrated is extremely important for the overall health and
appearance of your skin. Consuming a minimum of eight cups of water each day helps you remain well-hydrated and
results in skin that is soft and supple. Make sure you use a good water filter (not the pitcher type).
A cleansing solution that contains lemon juice is great for
treating oily skin, acne or over-sized pores. Using a lemon juice application every few days will also
help to tone your skin. Even better is a foaming facial cleanser based on kiwi fruit. It is
To prevent damage from the sun, always wear sunblock or foundation
that has an SPF of 15 or greater. Wear sunscreen with a minimum of 15 SPF to avoid sunburn or premature skin aging.
You can slow the aging process significantly by using a daily sunscreen. It slows the formation of tiny lines and
keeps the skin smooth and soft.
Try to keep your stress levels down. Stress can
cause an increase of adrenaline, DHEA and cortisol levels in your blood. All three of these are linked to skin
blemishes like psoriasis, acne, and eczema. Your skin also serves as an indicator of your physical and mental
health, so avoid stress to keep your skin looking good.
One simple way to determine your skin type is to do a tissue test. By
applying a tissue directly to the facial surface upon waking, the quantity of oil that remains on it will indicate
whether your skin is oily, dry or a combination of the two. Understanding what skin type you have will assist you
in choosing products specifically formulated for your skin.
While people may view tanning as a good thing for the skin, it can
actually be very dangerous. If you insist on being tan, avoid tanning beds and sunbathing and use sunless tanning
lotions. A tanning lotion will help you stay away from UV rays, which can cause cancer.
Normal skin types should use a daily moisturizer. Even in the absence
of excessively dry skin, you still need plenty of hydration. If you skip the hydration step, imbalanced skin and
wrinkles could be the result.
Washing your hands can cause them to dry out, whether or not
you use soap. Have hand lotion or cream handy and use it after you wash your hands. Actually, use it
anytime your hands are around water. In addition, your hands will be markedly softer and smoother. Keeping a
smaller sized lotion on hand will help you when you have to wash your hands in public.
Always remember to protect your young baby from sun damage, because
even one major sunburn contributes to much higher risk of skin cancer later in life. Sunburn can usually be treated
at home with cool cloths and creams, but you should consult your doctor if the sunburn damage is really
Relaxation techniques and learning coping skills will help reduce
stress. Stress not only makes you feel bad, it is bad for the skin too. You can avoid a poor complexion by reducing
the amount of environmental and emotional stresses. Most likely, this will have a positive impact on other aspects
of your life too.
To protect yourself from this, use lip balm every time you go
outside. This will help protect your lips from the damage caused by exposure to the sun.
Don't use bar soap to wash your face. Bar soap should be used only
from your neck going down and not on your face. Bar soap can clog your pores by drying out your face which could
lead to facial skin problems. Use only soaps which are designed specifically for gentle facial cleaning.
Use skin protection religiously. Use sunscreen that has a a good UVB
ray protection rating and apply this about 30 minutes before exposure to the sun. If possible, you should always
pick out the highest SPF that you can find. The sunscreen will prevent sunburns and premature aging.
You can talk to your dermatologist for prescription if you want a
better skin repair cream. These FDA-approved creams have undergone rigorous testing to ensure they are effective.
Unfortunately, many of these anti-aging creams cannot be used by women who are nursing, pregnant or people that
take certain types of medication.
When thinking about skin care, don't forget about your often
neglected feet. Your overall skin care routine should include healthy feet. Get a lubricant such as Vaseline to
keep your feet hydrated and healthy.
Clean your skin thoroughly at least twice a day. This will ensure
that dirt and bacteria will be thoroughly removed from the skin. After you clean your skin, make sure you
Clean your eyeglasses or sunglasses at least weekly if you wear these
items everyday. The dirt buildup your glasses' bridge can clog your pores, specifically on your nose. Use a gentle
soap and water solution to get the dirt off the bridge of your glasses.
