Nothing can top the beauty of healthy, radiant skin, but achieving it is not exactly easy. Our lifestyle, skin care regimen, diet, hormones and the environment are all factors which can influence your skin, so if you wish to look gorgeous and feel fabulous, you need to make sure you know how to care and protect the skin you’re in. There are numerous useful tips for perfect looking skin you can consider, so take a peek at the following ones and make sure you take them into account.
The need for perfect looking skin has always been there, since ancient times when even Cleopatra, who was famous for her beauty, turned towards the help of natural ingredients such as milk and essential oils to obtain a soft, silky skin, so if you want your skin to look amazing try to:
One of the biggest mistakes in skin care is excessive cleansing. The skin is coated with natural oils which help protect it from external factors and harsh skin cleansing can only remove that essential protection and cause sensitive skin. Using a facial cleanser destined for your skin type (without parabens) in the morning and evening should be enough to help the skin become clean, but without stripping away its natural protection.
Allow your skin to breath once in a while, as facial creams can block the oils which are naturally secreted by the skin. Do let your skin breath during the night so you can avoid developing breakouts caused by clogged pores.
One of the mistakes people make as far as facial care goes is to limit the area of the facial cream application to just the face. In fact, your neck needs the same attention, as it is exposed to external factors on a daily basis, and since it is even more delicate then the rest of the skin, you should be gentle and use moisturizing products on a daily basis for the neck as well. When you apply cream to your face, make sure you extend until the hair line and down to your collarbone.
Cleanse your skin once in a while with steam as it helps remove impurities without roughing-up your skin. The steam helps open up the pores for a quick and through cleanse. Pour some boiling water into a bowl and squeeze some lemon juice and add a few drops of lavender or rose petal essence into the water. Lean over the bowl with your face (without getting too close to the water) and place a towel over the head so the steam can start to “work” on your skin.
Keep your hair off your face to ensure that the oils and dust which cover the hair don’t transfer onto the skin especially during the night. Pull the hair into a low loose ponytail or wrap your hair into a silk scarf to keep it away from your face.
Use a special eye makeup remover to keep your eyes fresh and clean as these products are richer in oils which help remove the eye makeup more effectively and delicately. Wash your skin every time after using a makeup remover to ensure your skin is residue free.
Pay attention to details and your skin will most definitely feel and look fabulous.
