5 Priceless Face Care Tips to Make Your Skin Look Just Perfect
When it comes to our face, we all want the same thing: soft, radiant and youthful-looking skin. There are plenty of little things we can do each day to make sure our skin stays in top condition. Here are five easy golden rules for anyone on the quest for flawless skin.
1. Always use sunscreen on your face
When the sun is shining, most of us are pretty good at slapping on the sunscreen. But to achieve great skin, you need to wear sunscreen every single day, rain or shine. Even on overcast days, the sun’s harmful rays can still get through to your skin. Ultraviolet rays, which cause skin cancer and skin damage, are all around us every single day, and every day we don’t wear sunscreen is another day we increase our chances of skin cancer - not to mention brown spots, discoloration and wrinkles. Skin experts agree that daily sunscreen is essential to keeping skin looking healthy and youthful for as long as possible. A minimum sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 is recommended. Many facial products, including moisturizers and cosmetics, now contain SPF. Try Derma E -Sunscreen- Ash Deleon, a mineral powder with SPF 30.
2. Never sleep in your makeup
We’ve all been there: It’s late, you’re tired, you just want to get into your bed. Taking off your makeup just seems like way too much effort. Skipping your cleansing routine just this once won’t hurt, right? Wrong. Skin experts agree that you should never, ever sleep in your makeup. The night is a crucial time for our skin. It’s when skin renews, regenerates and refreshes. All of the unpleasant things left behind by makeup and your environment need to be removed from your skin before bed. Cosmetics left on the skin overnight will sink into pores, causing congestion and leading to dull and acne-prone skin. Experts now recommend the double cleanse, removing makeup in the first step and then following up with a deeper water-based cleanser afterwards. To achieve a truly deep clean, find the right products for your particular skin type.
Try Beauty Without Cruelty Eye Make Up Remover Creamy to help take off your makeup, then follow it up with another cleanser such as Derma E- Evenly Radiant Cleanser. The next time it seems like a little too much effort to remove your makeup, think twice. Your future self will really thank you.
3. Don’t touch your face
We’re all probably guilty of things like leaning your head on your hand as you work, stroking your chin while you think or rubbing your eyes after a long day; it’s second nature. But skin experts all agree it’s a habit we need to ditch in the quest for perfect skin. Touching your face leads to dirt, oil and bacteria transferring from your hands to your face. This blocks pores and leads to breakouts. Popping pimples is another huge no-no. If you find yourself going to touch your face, try to switch to a different action. Train yourself to make this the new habit and avoid touching your face.
4. Get a good skincare routine
If you want dreamy skin, you need to put some effort in. "Cleanse, tone and moisturize" is still sound advice. The key is finding the right products for your skin type to achieve the best skin you can. We’ve already discussed the importance of cleansing, but moisturizing is also essential for keeping skin firm, supple and wrinkle-free. Pay particular attention to the delicate under-eye area, too. Make sure your routine includes a good exfoliator a couple of times a week to scrub away dead skin cells. For a gentle facial scrub, try Earth Science Facial Scrub Apricot Gentle.
5. Eat healthier and drink lots of water
It makes perfect sense that what we put into our bodies affects how we look on the outside. Try to ditch the junk food (or at least reduce it) and treat your skin to healthier food, including lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. These contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, all of which your skin loves. Drinking two to three liters of water a day will also help you achieve plumper, firmer, clearer skin. Our bodies are 60 percent water, and we need to keep levels topped up. Drinking plenty of water flushes out toxins and helps encourage cell growth and renewal so you can achieve the skin you've always dreamed of.
