Healthy and glowing skin is an indication of a healthy body. Here are a few basic skincare tips to promote healthy skin, and a beautiful appearance.
Cleanse Your Skin
Cleanse in the morning and at night before you go to bed. Cleansing is the most effective way to remove dirt and impurities from the skin. Regular cleansing makes your skin feel fresh and clean.
Be sure to use toner after cleansing. Toner is used to restore the skin’s natural pH level. When you restore the skin’s natural pH level, you make it more resistant against bacteria and micro-organisms. After you cleanse apply a generous amount of toner to a cotton pad and wipe over your entire face, careful to avoid the sensitive eye area.
Moisturizing the skin will maintain a radiant glow throughout the day. Proper moisturizing restores the natural moisture to your skin, making it more soft and supple. When the toner is dry apply a pea sized amount of moisturizer and gently massage in circular motions into face and neck.
You should exfoliate at least 2-3 times a week. Whether you have dry, oily, or normal skin exfoliation is still a very important and necessary step in your skin care routine. Exfoliation unclogs pores, prevents acne, helps other skincare products penetrate deeper, evens skin tone, boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage, increases cellular turnover, and stimulates collagen which improves the skins texture and integrity. Be sure to use an exfoliant that isn’t too harsh, as harsh exfoliants can aggravate acne and tear the skin.
Always Use Sunscreen
Dermatologists recommend using sunscreen daily to protect the skin from the hazardous effects of the suns UV rays.
Drink Plenty of Water
The skin is an organ and just like any other part of the body, your skin is made up of cells. Cells are made up of water. Without water, the organs will not function at their best. If your skin is not getting a sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will manifest by turning your skin dry, tight, and flaky. Dry skin is very prone to wrinkles. Drinking at least 8-10 glasses of water daily will help rid the body and skin of toxins.
