I have come up with a complete face guide with some vital tips on your daily beauty regime. As face is the most sensitive part, you should always adopt extra precautions while taking care of it.
Read on to find out those useful beauty tips!
Treat your face like silk
Considering your face to be too soft as if it were made of silk, wash your face accordingly. Clean your face in a gentle, circular motion. Use your cleanser in an upward direction from your neck and décolleté. Make sure not to vigorously rub and pull your hands on your skin. That’s because too much pressure can temporarily result in a rosy glow but in the long run, it can damage capillaries and stretch out skin in the long run.
Go for the optimal product texture
If your skin is dry that yields flakes whenever a piece of tape is pressed against it making you feel taut then go for optimal product texture. Creamy moisture-rich cleansers that come with soothing plant extracts like seaweed are the best suggested for you.
And if you’ve oily or acne-prone then use a face wash that has exfoliating fruit extracts like papaya, grapefruit or salicylic acid. Use this face wash twice a week to slough off dead skin cells with a gentle scrub.
If your skin is sensitive with patches of redness then it’s better to go for a natural cleansing oil or non-lathering face wash that doesn’t contain dyes and perfumes.
Save yourself from the wrinkle culprit and moisture bandit i.e. sun
Always settle down for a good sunscreen that provides optimum UVA protection including protection against moisture loss. Since the sun shines all year long, SPF lotion becomes a necessity no matter even it’s below zero outside.
For winter months, an advanced emollient version is necessary. There are several moisturizing lotions available in the market that contain sunscreen, which offers a protective barrier against harmful rays and other weather-inflicted skin conditions. However, be warned that even the branded moisturizers that claim to have protective sunscreen are not effective in reality.
Focus more on the hydration department
It’s not mandatory to skin deep yourself in cosmetics to hydrate your skin. Moreover, there are plenty of ways to get extra hydration. There are simple and easy ways, for instance hitting the steam room for a couple of minutes at the gym or spa, consuming eight glasses of water per day (in the form of pure water, juice of fruits and veggies) – all these tips can create a huge impact.
Try to replace lost moisture from the inside out. Even though estrogen makes the skin flexible, its effect reduces over age thereby demanding extra hydration essential elements for youthful skin. You can compensate the loss of natural estrogen with green veggies like broccoli that contain antioxidants like vitamins A and C. These antioxidants are crucial in giving glow to your skin.
Even creams with glycerin and hyaluronic acid are useful. Use them twice a day for best results. Don’t skip this beauty regime even if your skin is oily, as dehydrated skin is prone to producing more sebum, increasing your issues.
Check on your sugar cravings
If you’ve sweet tooth and crave for sweets and sugary foods then your habit can wreak havoc on your skin. Sugar tends to promote aging by prompting free radicals, thereby creating inflammation that damages cells. For this, you’ll have to compromise with your taste buds and follow a low-sugar diet instead. This will help in keeping insulin levels down, thereby allowing cells to maintain a healthy balance.
Look for the required fat in your diet
Cutting on fat foods doesn’t mean you’ll have to remove all the fat from your diet as you require the required amount of fat for supple and smooth skin. It is proved that diet with essential fatty acids promote healthy cellular production, thereby neutralizing inflammation. Such diet certainly helps in getting youthful-looking complexion. Go for Omega-3s, which are rich in salmon, mackerel, tuna, nuts, and seeds.
Go for water-based foods
It’s quite hard to achieve hydrated skin only by drinking water. You’ll also have to consume veggies and fruits that are high in water content. Raw fruits and vegetables along-with their juices help in increasing your body’s essential need for water.
Hope this helps!
