Recommendations and tips for you to take care of your skin every day according to its characteristics, face creams, scrubs, and more
How much do you think about the well-being of your skin? More than an aesthetic matter, taking care of it is important for your health. With the sun’s stronger rays as the days go by, the chances of suffering skin diseases from exposure and neglect increase.
Do you apply sunscreen? Do you clean your face after a whole day of being in contact with pollution? How often do you give your skin a deep cleaning? Do you know how to care for it and hydrate it if it is oily or dry?
On the occasion of the mega alliance between Seguros SURA and L’Occitane, which you can take advantage of between August 30 and September 1, 2016, we invite you to follow these recommendations to protect your skin.
20 Tips To Keep Your Skin Healthy
1. Drink water and eat well:
Your skin will thank you if you stay hydrated and do not consume very greasy or sweet foods in excess. Your skin reflects your eating habits. Do not forget! However, if for some reason you don’t manage to follow a healthy eating routine or drink enough water, consider taking supplements to correct your vitamin levels and stay hydrated. You can either take oral supplements or iv supplements. Both will give the results you want if you follow the “rules”. Oral supplements may take some time to give you the results you want, while iv fluids take 15-30 minutes to give you relief and an immediate energy boost. You can search for mobile IV therapy in Oklahoma City, or do deep research on oral supplements you think you need right now.
2. Don’t use any cream, toner, scrub, or soap.
Don’t forget to read the label or listing before checking out. Read testimonials and check the star ratings when shopping for a cream, toner, soap, or scrub online. While many celebrities and influencers are saying good things about various skincare products, it still pays off to be extra careful when using them.
Choose the ones that suit your skin type: if it is dry, oily, or normal. Whenever you buy a product, try it for a couple of days and see if it generates harmful effects.
3. Use special products for your face:
The skin on your face is normally more sensitive, so creams and other products are different from those you can apply to your body.
Your facial skincare routine must include essential vitamins, like vitamin A. While vitamin A derivatives are good for the skin, they hardly penetrate the epidermis or the skin’s topmost layer. Hence, skincare manufacturers convert vitamin A or beta carotene into a more skin-absorbable form, retinaldehyde. Retinaldehyde products are deemed to be effective because of their superior skin absorption even in small amounts.
However, don’t forget to consult a skin expert to help you assess your facial skin type. A dermatologist can provide you with a personalized facial skincare routine and treatment recommendations. If you’re suffering from stubborn acne, oily spots, and other skin problems, a dermatologist can treat you in the clinic and guide you on how to best manage your skin at home.
4. Cleanse your face in the morning and at night.
Using a special product (soap, cleanser, makeup remover) and a face towel — even with your fingertips — use gentle, circular motions over your skin. Repeat the process up to three times to make sure it is free of impurities.
5. Use sunscreen:
keep in mind that this must be special for your skin type. Some without oil for oily skin and others with different levels if your skin is very dry. There are also some nutrients and components that hydrate. Apply it at least twice a day, one of them before leaving your house. However, check the recommendations on the label of the product you buy.
6. Exfoliate your face at least once a week to remove impurities and dead cells.
You don’t have to get very expensive products for this. How about honey, oatmeal and sugar scrub, or fruit blended with honey? Gently massage the mixture for 5-10 minutes, and you’re done. Too easy!
7. Don’t smoke or drink liquor.
Also, take care of stress to avoid the appearance of pimples and expression lines. It’s best to quit cigarette smoking and drinking alcohol because they can lead to skin problems, like dry skin and other health issues. They increase the body’s free radicals, which can have negative effects on the skin.
8. Makeup with products that adapt to the conditions of your face.
Avoid allergies or other types of reactions. Remove it every night before bed. In case you did not know, makeup was not made only for women: now there are a variety of articles for men that allow them to look good in a casual way.
Sweating is perhaps the best exfoliator. Jog, swim, play, go to the gym. Make your pores open so that your skin is fully prepared to receive a lot of care.
10. Go to the dermatologist:
See him at least once a year to confirm that everything is okay. He will help you not only treat spots, suspicious moles, or acne. It will give you a global vision on how to be better.
11. Be consistent
It is useless to take care of our skin only when we see its appearance is not good. In skincare, prevention is key, and consistency even more so.
12. Know what type of skin you have
Not all skins are the same, so there are so many types of skincare products. It is essential to know our skin to choose our perfect allies.
13. Cleanse your face twice a day
Cleansing the skin of the face is essential for all other care to bear fruit. At the very least, wash your face twice a day: once in the morning, remove toxins released during sleep and once at night to enhance the vital function of sleep.
14. Choose your moisturizer with the help of a specialist
Moisturizing cream is a must. The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. Hydration is essential, and, therefore, let yourself be advised by a specialist when making your choice.
15. Apply moisturizer twice a day
It is common to think that moisturizers should only be applied before bed, but it should also be done in the morning. It is recommended that the day cream be different from the night cream since, as we have seen in the previous point, the skin’s functioning is different.
16. Remove makeup well, but gently
It is obvious, but we will repeat ad nauseam. At night, remove makeup well so that the regeneration of the skin when falling asleep becomes effective. Of course, removing makeup well is not synonymous with doing it aggressively.
17. Take special care of the eye contour
The skin around the eyes is especially thin, sensitive, and more prone to dehydration. Moisturize this area as much as you can.
18. Exfoliate your skin
As a general rule, we should exfoliate the skin twice a week. However, the frequency will change depending on your skin type: oily skin needs more exfoliation than dry skin.
19. Protect yourself from the sun
Now that summer is coming; this point takes on special importance. Even if it’s to go to work, apply sunscreen and make sure that this cream is the last product you apply in your routine.
20. Get cosmetic treatments to enhance your routine care
Aesthetic treatments will help you keep your skin clean and perfect.
