Keeping It Simple is the Key to Glowing, Healthy Skin
Many men and women believe that enjoying movie-star looks and glowing skin is difficult and can take a lot of time.The truth is that keeping it simple is the key to achieving glowing, healthy, skin.
Here are some simple methods for achieving the skin you desire, without spending hours in front of a mirror.
Exfoliating Before a Shower
If your skin has rough patches, it is likely to be a result of dead skin that just sits on top and exfoliating before a shower is an easy method that anybody can do at home for healthy and smooth skin.
It is also good for your health because it helps in eliminating toxins through your lymphatic system and reduces cellulite build-up.
The exfoliation process is simple. All you need to do is brush your skin inwards towards your lymph nodes which exist all over your body. This is a very healthy practice you can follow every day before your shower.
Exfoliation removes dead skin from your body, which will get washed away when you shower and you will feel your skin tingling with health. Regular exfoliation will improve circulation and your skin will begin to appear firm.
Exfoliation should be limited to two or three times a week to prevent the skin’s barrier function from being affected. A weak skin barrier can affect the ability of the skin to retain moisture and cause dryness, irritation and flaky skin.
Apply Skincare Products in the Right Order
To get the best results when using skincare products, ensure that the products are applied in the right order.
A simple rule to follow is to apply skincare products with the thinnest consistency first and then move to ones with a thicker consistency. It is also important to start with products containing important ingredients like antioxidants and finish with products that sit on top of the skin.
Typically, you would start with a cleanser to ensure the skin is clean so the ingredients of the skincare products can penetrate the skin.
Once the skin has been cleansed use a toner, serum and moisturiser.
If you use skincare products in any other order, the product with a heavier consistency will block ingredients from products that have a lighter consistency from penetrating the skin
If you’re stepping out of the home during the day, remember to apply sunscreen to block the harsh rays of the sun and use a hat for added protection.
Care For the Neck
Visible signs of ageing begin to appear on the neck as you move through your 40s, 50s and are more prominent in your senior years.
While these aren’t seen in your 20s and 30s you will wish you had paid as much attention to the neck as you had done for your face.
Apply the same skincare products used on your face to the neck but with a reduced frequency, such as every other day. For instance, when you apply moisturiser in the morning or a nourishing cream before bedtime, remember to apply the products to your neck as well.
Cleanse Before Bedtime
Whether you use makeup to look your best or are naturally beautiful, it is important to cleanse your face before going to bed.
Leaving make-up on or getting rid of pollutants from your face clogs the pores in your face and prevents the skin to breathe naturally. This can lead to breakouts and excessive dryness.
Also remember to remove eye makeup as well as keeping it on can cause rashes around eyes or tiny white bumps known as milia cysts.
When choosing skincare products remember to pick those made from natural ingredients which are free from harsh chemicals that can cause long-term damage.
