Easy, light and natural
It’s understandable you want to keep your skin as clean as possible, but using heavy duty cleaners may do you more harm than good. They are too harsh on your face and may cause irritations. Instead, create a routine of cleaning your face properly and naturally. Try to steam your face before washing (holding your covered head above a bowl with hot boiled water), and then wash it with warm water using the cleaner that suits your skin type, after rinse your face thoroughly and make sure there is no traces of cleaner left.
Multi-task to the max
As we mentioned, we are living a hasty life, so it is important to find products that multi-task, so you don’t have to juggle with all the aspects of skincare. For skincare, hydrating is one of the most important things, so you’ll need moisturizers that have some other functions. Like, for example, BB creams, that are providing you with foundation coverage, sun protection and moisturizing. How amazing is that?
Peeling off the layers
Sure, it is important to clean and moisturize, but if you are not exfoliating your skin is not living up to its full potential. Exfoliation/peeling means removing dead skin cells from its surface. It is crucial as we age, because it is helping our skin regenerate. Over-exfoliating, however, can cause dryness, irritation and damage, so limit it to once a week. One other way to replace the old and unhealthy skin cells with new and healthy ones is a procedure called microdermabrasion, which you can get with some products at home or leave it to a professional in a salon or clinic.
Healthy inside out
Your skin is an important indicator of your internal health, thus we come to the important conclusion that your internal health affects your skin. There are certain minerals and vitamins your skin craves for, and you can fulfill its cravings by eating or drinking food/beverages which contain them. Omega-3 fatty acids are helpful for moisturizing and repairing your skin health, and you can find them in cold-water fish. Selenium is helping your skin regain its elasticity, which you can find in Brazilian nuts, eggs, seafood and garlic. Vitamin C is protecting your skin from the sun, so whenever possible treat yourself with red and green bell peppers, guava or broccoli.
