Simple Skin Care Tips and Tricks
By Dakota Caudilla
You don't need to engage in long, lengthy beautifying procedures or spend lots of money on expensive facial treatments in a beauty salon or spa in order to have good skin. To have bright, clear and healthy-looking skin, all you need to do is to follow a routine with products suitable for your skin type. Generally speaking, skin can be divided into three different types; dry, combination and oily. Find out your skin type and buy products suitable for your skin type. Following a beauty regime using the wrong products will make your skin feel even worse and there might even be skin breakouts and tightening of skin causing more wrinkles.
Cleanse, tone and moisturize. This is an absolute MUST-DO! Regardless of your schedule, you must find the time to cleanse, tone and moisturize your facial skin at least twice a day. Some people do it three-time-a-day but it depends on your schedule, your lifestyle, skin-type and weather conditions. If you're not sure, visit a beautician and ask for their professional advice.
Block out the UV lights. In some countries and during summer time, it's not conceivable for anyone to leave their homes without putting some sun block on. Sun block not only protects your skin your UV lights and keep sunburn away, sun block also helps to protect your skin from developing premature wrinkles and lines. Excessive exposure to direct sunlight can do irreparable damage to your skin, so, do dab on some sun block before you leave the house.
Minimal make-up. Today's teens wear too much makeup. Too much make-up will clog up pores and make your skin more prone to blemishes. So, wear minimal make-up and if it's necessary for you to wear make-up throughout the day, be sure to go through a very thorough make-up removal process before you start cleansing, toning and moisturizing your face. Never leave make-up on overnight!
Exfoliate dead skin cells. Depending on the type of exfoliation product or scrub that you're using, exfoliation of dead skin cells should be done either every end of the day or twice a week. Read the instructions on the product packaging. Exfoliation is important because we shed dead skin cells every single day, and if dead skin cells are not removed, they will dull out the color of our skin, cause wrinkles and clog our pores.
Mask it out. Use facial mask regularly and liberally. If you don't have a mild mask handy, try mashing some bananas and avocado together and use it every day. Putting on mask regularly will help keep your face supple and smooth and it also cleans out pores and reduces facial lines.
