Most people are familiar with the basics of skin care, such as washing your face, but do not have good advice on what else to do to keep their skin healthy and attractive. Read through these tips to get information on the best way to take care of your skin.
If you wear glasses or sunglasses a lot, make sure you keep them clean. If not the oils from your skin can build up on them. Then when you wear them, that oil gets back onto your skin. If you don’t keep them clean you’ll constantly be building up oils on your skin which will result in acne around that area.
To improve aging skin, cut down on your sugar intake. Too much sugar in the blood stream over a long period of time can cause glycation, which is when sugars damage the proteins that make up collagen, an essential component of skin and other parts of your body. Damage to collagen increases wrinkles and dryness and decreases skin elasticity, so get rid of the sugar as an investment toward a beautiful future.
Razor bumps are the bane of many men’s workdays. To avoid razor bumps when shaving, you need to use the proper razor. Amazingly, more blades does not always mean a better shave; the recent introduction of 4 and 5 blade razors have actually caused more razor bumps than those that are only double or triple-bladed. Try a high-quality double-bladed razor, preferably one with a disposable head, and you will see that you will wind up with a smoother face.
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.
Protect your skin from the sun. Too much sun exposure is one of the prime causes of premature wrinkles, freckles as well as age spots and even dry skin. In addition to these cosmetic problems, the sun can also seriously increase your risk of developing skin cancer. Always wear sun screen, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. as this is when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
You should not wear socks or gloves that are wet. These can easily irritate your skin and can cause itching, cracking or eczema.
A good skin care tip is to avoid using soap directly on your face. Using soap is fine on your body, but using it on your face can cause the skin to dry out, which may result in a breakout. Generally, soaps should be applied below the neck.
As previously noted, having healthy and attractive skin is very important. Beyond the basics of facial cleansing there are some additional things you can do to improve your skin. Following the tips you have just read will improve your skin care regime so that your skin is as healthy as possible.
