Basic Skin Care Needs

Post by Dazzler on Sun May 16, 2010 1:10 pm

Skin care is very important to achieve a fresh and healthy look. They say a beautiful face starts with a flawless skin. I totally agree with that. You don't need too much makeup because you don't have imperfections to hide. If you want to look good, invest in your skin care and not on your makeup.

Choosing the best product is important because that is your defense against blemishes. Try what is out there to know what your skin needs. Do not listen to what other people say or what famous people use because each skin is unique. What worked for others may not be good for you. Look for products that are tested for sensitive skin and non-comedogenic. Do not be afraid to check out other brands until you find the right one for you.

Here are the basic skin care routine that are tested by many to get a glowing skin:

Cleanser

This is very important to loosen dirt and unclog your pores. Some use water to cleanse their face and that is okay too if you do not apply makeup. If you do apply makeup, it is best to use a good cleanser that is suitable for your skin type as makeup removers may not be enough. If you have oily skin, make sure you cleanse your face twice a day (morning and evening) to get rid of excess dirt and oils on the face. Wash with lukewarm water to open the pores and then rinse with a cool water to seal it. For those who have dry skin, you can use cold cream or a wipe off cleanser if cleansing with water is too drying for you.


Scrub

Exfoliating is necessary because it removes the dead skin cells that makes the skin look dull. It is advised to exfoliate once or twice a week to unclog the pores and help avoid blemishes. Go for a facial scrub that has tiny grains instead of big ones as this can cause damage on the skin. Remember to avoid the eye area because it is too sensitive for exfoliation.


Toner

Some people don't use toners but I should say that it is as significant as cleansing and scrubbing. Toner washes away excess dirt, oil, and makeup on the skin that cleansers leave behind. It also balances the skin's PH level to prepare it for moisturizing. I have tried skipping the toner before but I am not satisfied with how my skin looks without it. I notice a few white heads developing around my nose after a few days of not toning so skipping it is a big no no for me.


Moisturizer

Moisturizer seals in the moisture in our skin and give it a glow. When you cleanse your face it takes away natural oils. It can cause dryness, itchiness, flaking, and irritation. Listen to your skin. If you feel tightness, that means it's dry and needs to rehydrate. Moisturizing rejuvinates the skin to make it supple, soft, smooth, and younger looking. However be careful not to apply too much moisturizer because it can also clog your pores. Apply just the right amount to hydrate the skin. A good moisturizer is one that is non-comedogenic, dermatologist tested, and has sun protection. There are many types of face lotion so choose one specific for your skin type.

I couldn’t agree more that investing in skin care products is the secret to maintaining a beautiful skin. Alternatively, maintaining our skin from the inside is the beginning of the routine that’s why I take lots of vitamins C and E because it helps rejuvenates the skin.

Great article admin! Skin care like the words says has to be observed for a beautiful and clear skin. No matter what your routine is, constant attention will keep the skin healthy. I do follow a regimen to cleanse, exfoliate, tone, and moisturize my skin to keep its glow. If you have a beautiful skin, you wouldn't need that much makeup to look stunning.

That's right! I have had acne before and I had to use more makeup than the usual to cover it up. I am glad I got through it by maintaining a clean face. Acne is one skin imperfection that is difficult to treat but there are a few acne facial wash that works great that you might reconsider using. If you have been treating acne for awhile and nothing works, then you're not using the best treatment. If you keep your face clean and oil free all the time, your chances of getting more blemishes will be reduced.

To make or keep your skin beautiful, it's best to work from the inside.

Eating the right kind of food can do you more good than any medicine, and go a long way in helping your body's own healing forces. Eat a balanced diet that includes raw foods, plenty of yellow and orange vegetables (they contain beta carotene - a precursor to vitamin A). Foods high in sulfur such as garlic, onions, asparagus and eggs. Include fruits, seeds, grains and nuts.
Wash your face twice a day (no more) with warm water and a mild soap made for people with acne. Gently massage your face with circular motions. Don't scrub. Overwashing and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated. After cleansing, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends applying an over-the-counter (no prescription needed) lotion containing benzoyl peroxide. This will decrease oil and bacteria.

I agree with all of you. All the skin care products will not work if you life an unhealthy lifestyle. You need to eat healthy, take vitamins, exercise, sleep for at least 8hrs everyday, and drink plenty of water.
