♥ 10 Tips to Caring Your Face ♥
Posted by Zura on November 4, 2008
As we know, with the unlimited number of facial care products and techniques out there, it is hard to know what can be a true benefit for us in terms of caring for our delicate facial skin. Below is tips which may simplify facial care for us, guyz. Check it out😉
1. Knowing our skin type is one of the most important facial skin care tips
This is important because not every skin care product suits everyone. In fact, all the skin care products specify the type of skin they cater too.
2. ‘Drink a lot of water’
This will not keep our skin moist but will help in overall upkeep of our health (and in turn our skin). It might seem a bit awkward to some, however, this is an important skin care tip.
3. Cleanse our skin regularly (1-2 times everyday)
This is a very effective skin care tip that helps in getting rid of the dirt and other harsh elements from our skin. Cleansing is especially important when we have been out of our house (and hence exposed to pollutants, dust etc). This skin care tip also advocates the use of lukewarm water for cleansing (hot and cold water, both, cause damage to our skin).
4. Be gentle, after all it’s our skin
Don’t scrub/exfoliate too hard or too often. Similarly, don’t apply too much or too many skin care products. This is a must-follow skin care tip.
5. Keep our skin moist at all times
This is one of the most important skin care tips. Don’t let our skin get dry. Dryness causes the outer layer of our skin to break, leading to a rough and unattractive appearance. Use moisturizers/ emollients. Moisturizers work best when applied while the skin is still damp.
6. Avoid the use of soap on our face
Soap should only be used from below the neck. A small but important skin care tip.
7. Use sunscreen to protect ourself from sun’s harmful UV radiations.
We can use day-time moisturizers that have sunscreen built into them. Use them even when it’s cloudy. UV radiations are known to cause skin cancer, so follow this skin care tip without fail.
8. A bit of exercise and good sleep are essential too, not just for skin care but for our health as a whole
Lack of sleep can lead to formation of wrinkles below our eyes and lack of exercise can cause our skin to slack. Moreover, exercise and sleep also help in beating stress.
9. Treat skin dilemmas with care
This skin care tip is about not ignoring any skin dilemmas. Consult your dermatologist before you go on to use a skin care product (lest you do end up harming your skin even more).
10. Beat the stress
The harmful effects of stress are known to everyone, however, sometimes stating the obvious is essential too (and hence this skin care tip found its place here). Yes, stress harms skin too. So, take a break or indulge in a warm bubble bath or just get good sleep.
