Tips For A Healthy And Vibrant Complexion

Skin care is not just about beauty and vanity but is also a matter of health. Taking proper care of your skin and avoiding the sun, will result in better looking skin and reduced chances of skin cancer. This article can help you to understand the care that your skin needs to be at its best.

In order to best care for your skin, be sure to keep it moist at all times by using a gentle non-oily moisturizer. Allowing your skin to become dried out will cause damage to the outer layers, which can result in a rough, unattractive look. Moisturizers work best when applied while the skin is still damp from cleansing.

Avoid touching your face unnecessarily. If you pay close attention, you will notice that you put your hands to your face quite frequently throughout the day. This spreads germs and oils from everything you touch onto your face. Wash your hands and face often to clean off these oils and try your best to stop this bad habit.

To maintain proper skin care for yourself, be sure to keep your skin clean. This is important to prevent your pores from becoming clogged. Clogged pores will result in ugly blemishes due to infections. Be sure to not use harsh soaps so as to not dry out the skin, use mild temperature water, and be sure to not over clean.

If you wear makeup, you can improve and protect your skin by cleansing your face in two stages. Use a makeup-removing cleanser first, then follow up with a cleanser containing ingredients that will refresh, calm and moisturize your skin. Just make sure that both cleansers are non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic and gentle, since washing twice gives you twice the opportunity to dry out or irritate your skin.

Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. Sun exposure is the number one cause of aging of the skin, and it’s a shame because it’s so easy to prevent. Slather on the sunscreen as soon as you step out of the shower to help it really soak in, put some more on visible areas on your lunch break, and then again when you get home, in that little half-minute break before you get out of the car to go inside. Make sure to refresh throughout the day, because sunscreen wears off. (If you pick a sunscreen that’s also a moisturizer, that’s another bonus!)

In the cold months you should use a humidifier, especially if you have central heat. Central heating systems push out hot, dry air through out the building. This air can damage and dry out your skin. Using a humidifier can add moisture in the air, help you breathe better, and keep your skin from drying out.

As already advised in the beginning of the article, skin care is a matter of health as well as beauty. Your skin reflects your health and well being. Healthy skin glows. By following the advice in this article and taking care of your skin, you will have skin that will reward you with beauty and good health.
