Like it or not, beauty is often determined by the health of your skin since it is what we see first. Skin care involves more than just cleaning it and using lotion. It also involves having a healthy diet, getting enough sleep and exercise, and managing stress levels. Your unique skin type may also determine any additional treatments as well, such as using exfoliating scrubs or moisturizing masks. Keep in mind some golden rules in order to keep your skin healthy.
1. Determine your skin type
In order to take care of and respect your skin, first and foremost make sure to choose products specially designed for your skin type. Dry skin does not have the same needs as oily skin and vice verse. There are a lot of different ways to find your skin type. Consult your cosmetologist in order to get the right skin care creams.
2. Pay attention to fragile zones
Some parts of the face (eye contour, lips, etc.) have particularly fine, fragile skin. They need specific care, especially the eye contour and the lips. These areas of your face are more sensitive and deserve special attention.
3. Gentle cleaning
Taking care of sensitive skin begins with make-up removal. In order not to stress your skin and to respect its natural balance, make sure to use a pH-neutral make-up remover, specially formulated to cleanse your epidermis gently.
4. Moisturizing is essential
The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis, 15%. In order to keep the skin well moisturized, it is important to choose daily moisturizing skin care products that balance the level of water within the skin. You may also use a moisturizing mask regularly, removing the excess with a spring water spray.
5. Use hypoallergenic make-up
To avoid the risk of allergies linked to the use of products that are not suited to your skin, choose hypoallergenic make-up specially formulated to meet the needs of all skin and eye types, even sensitive skin.
6. Protect your skin from ultraviolet rays
Whatever the season, choose daily skincare products that include solar filters. They reduce the harmful effects of the sun, which accelerates skin ageing.
7. Avoid stress
Such things as pollution, smoke and stress, have harmful effects on the skin. Use skincare products to protect your skin against these daily stresses before leaving the house and cleanse your skin thoroughly when you come home in the evening.
8. Start thinking about your skin since youth
Maintain your skin clean and healthy since you are a teenager. The special care is going to keep your youth last forever.
