Daily Skin Care Tips

Skin Care Tips

The 3 steps to daily skin care

 

Step One: Cleanse your face and neck every morning and night. Always gently cleanse in circular motions in an upward direction. You don’t need to use anything but your hands to cleanse, washcloths are optional.

 

Step Two: Tone your skin every time you wash your face and neck. It is one of the most important steps in your skin care regime, but often forgotten. When you tone, you are adjusting the pH of your skin back to normal which is critical to keep your face balanced and healthy. Toning will also remove any stubborn dirt left on your face and prepare your skin for moisturizing. For best results, gently use a cotton ball in upward motions.

 

Step Three: This is the most important step. Moisturize your face and neck every morning and night after you cleanse and tone. Always moisturize your face and neck in upward, circular motions with a gentle touch on your face. Don’t help gravity by tugging down on your skin and remember that the skin on your face, especially around the eyes, is very delicate.

 

Extra Pampering

 

 Exfoliate your skin every 3-5 days. Exfoliate your face and neck in circular upward gentle motions with very gentle products. Remember that you are simply exfoliating off dead skin which takes very little pressure.

 

Use Eye Creams. They are designed to super moisturize the finest skin on your face. When you apply eye creams always use your ring finger or pinky to apply products around the delicate area of your eyes. Your pinky and ring finger are weak by nature and force you to apply gentle pressure.

 

Use Facial Masks on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to detoxify, renew, and tighten your pores. Before you use a facial mask, it is important to cleanse and tone. Be sure to leave the mask on your face and neck for five to twenty minutes depending on the mask type. Gently and thoroughly remove the mask with warm water. After you remove your mask make sure that you tone and moisturize.

Eczema

The word ‘eczema’ comes from Greek words that mean ‘to boil over’. ‘Dermatitis’ comes from the Greek word for skin and both terms refer to exactly the same skin condition. Eczema may also be referred to as ‘atopic eczema’ when it is caused by allergies. It is generally pronounced eckzema, eczema or exsama.

Eczema is a fairly common condition. Statistics on eczema indicate that eczema affects more than 15 million Americans and ten percent of all children. Strangely enough, the condition appears to be getting more common. Some hypothesize that it may have to do with our increasing exposure to chemicals as well as other allergens.

Eczema is an itchy inflammation of the skin associated to a varying degree with other features such as:

redness of affected areas of skin

 

generally dry skin, which is often thickened in the areas that have been scratched

 

lumps or blisters in affected areas

 

signs of superficial infection such as weeping or crusty deposits.

Knowing your skin type

 

Facial Skin is of three types – Normal, Dry and Oily skin type. First of all it is important to understand that the great variety of skin types among us will limit science from accommodating every skin type with its own category. The type of skin you have depends on the activity of the subaceous, or oil producing glands.

 

The following results generally indicate your skin type as:

 

Normal Skin Type – If upon observation in the mirror there are no prominent areas of shine, your skin feels comfortable and there is no residue on the tissue.

 

 

 


 

Combination Skin Type – If upon observation in the mirror there are prominent areas of shine on your forehead, nose, and chin AND the tissue test also reveals residue for those areas but cheeks are normal.

Are Face Masks Beneficial?

If there is one skin care item that can work miracles, it is a face mask. But, like any other skincare product, you should choose carefully to pick the right facial mask for you.  Face masks makes your skin smooth, prepare skin and helps to prevents aging.

Mask It!

Choose from the wonderful selection of face masks on the market to find one that is perfect for your skin.
Moisturizing Face Masks

These are ideal for dry complexions because they boost the moisture levels of your skin. This means they can help banish dry parches, flakiness and even fine lines. They work quickly like an intensive moisturizer and are usually left on the skin for 5-10 minutes before being removed with a tissue. The slight residue left on your skin will continue to work until you next cleanse your skin. They are a soothing treat, particularly after too much sun, or when your skin feels “tight”.

Clay and mud Face Masks

Ideal for oily skins, they absorb excess grease and impurities. They are an ideal way to close open pores, reduce shine and clear troublesome blemishes. They dry on your skin over a period of 5-15 minute and then you simply wash them away with warm water, rinsing dead skin cells, dirt and grime away at the same time. They are a fantastic pick-me-up for skin.

Exfoliating Facial Masks

Masks with a light exfoliating action can keep your skin in tip-top condition. Even normal skins sometimes suffer from the build-up of dead skin cells, which can create a dull look and lead to future problems such as blackheads. Masks that cleanse and exfoliate are the perfect solution. They smooth on like a clay mask, and are left to dry. When you rinse them away, their tiny abrasive particles slough away the skin’s surface debris.Peel-off Face Packs

Ideal for all skin types, the mask is smoothed on, left to dry and peeled off. This light formulation refreshes oily areas, clears clogged pores, helps aging mature skin, and nourishes drier skins.

Gel Face Masks

These are suitable for sensitive skins, as well as oily complexions, as they have a wonderfully soothing and cooling effect.

Night Creams Benefits Skin … Are Creams or Moisturizers Beneficial at Night?

Going to bed with night cream on your face can benefit your skin in many ways while you are sleeping. Night creams contain special ingredients like vitamins and anti-aging components. In fact, these creams can also be thicker and more intensive than ordinary daily moisturizer because you don’t need to apply makeup on the top of them.

How Night cream benefits your skin?

The cell renewal of skin is more active in the night and night creams are designed in such a way to make the most of these hours. Using a night cream daily gives your skin the chance to repair the damage caused by makeup, air pollution and ultra-violet sun rays.

Night creams are particularly beneficial for dry and very dry skin type when used daily. Choose the formulation carefully on the basis of how dry your skin is – it is important that your skin should not feel overloaded.

Applying Night Cream

Dab a little night cream in your palm and then gently rub your both hands together. This way the cream is more easily absorbed.  Applying night cream before going to bed means waking up softer, smoother complexion. Skin’s performance can boost if night cream is applied to slightly damp skin as it seals in extra moisture.
