Skincare should be part of your overall health and sometimes, with your busy schedule, this might be something that is easily overlooked. Skincare does not need to be complicated. There are many simple ways that are helpful in giving you beautiful looking skin. Here are some suggestions and ideas that you can follow.
One great way to refresh your skin, especially in the summer, is to use a cotton ball soaked in witch hazel. Witch hazel is a mild herbal-based toner, low in alcohol. It will deal with the oiliness that builds up on your face on a hot summer day, but not in a drying way, and will leave your face feeling cool and refreshed
Cut down on fatty and sugary foods. Fried foods and foods high in sugar may taste good, but they wreak havoc on your face. Eliminate them from your diet as much as possible, and that includes soft drinks. Replace those junk foods with healthier alternatives (for example, eat yogurt instead of ice cream) and watch your skin improve.
You need to be able to identify what kind of skin you have in order to treat it well. For example, if you have dry skin, you will notice your skin is tight and perhaps even flaky after washing. You need to avoid astringents and soaps, use cream-based cleansers whenever you can, and non-clogging moisturizers to soothe and protect.
For beautiful, magazine-model skin, skip those extra alcoholic drinks. Research shows that drinking more than one beer, glass of wine, or cocktail per day can increase your skin’s oiliness and make your pores look larger. Plus, drinking too much alcohol can dehydrate you, causing skin flakiness. Additionally, alcohol’s ability to dilate blood vessels will increase redness.
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 your current day cream or lotion does not contain ingredients to protect your skin from the sun, consider mixing in a lightweight sunscreen. Ideally, your facial products should offer SPF of at least 15. Seek out skincare with sun-loving ingredients like vobenzone, Helioplex, or micronized zinc. These ingredients offer broad-spectrum coverage without affecting the appearance of the skin’s coloring.
For a therapeutic, moisturizing treatment for dry and sensitive skin, look for bath products with rice milk, soy milk, or oat milk. Milk has soothing and softening properties and will not clog pores or leave residue on the skin. Limit your soak to twenty minutes, however; any longer and you risk dehydrating the skin.
As you can see, taking care of your skin can be simple. You just need to be mindful of what works for your skin and what does not. Try the ideas in this article. You will be pleasantly surprised by the results that you see. Just remember to be diligent and you will get the beautiful skin that you have always wanted.
