Apart from having a daily skin care regimen consisting of cleansing, toning, moisturizing and exfoliating regularly, there are some other ways to help your skin keep looking younger and more rejuvenated.
Below are five simple tips anyone can benefit from:
Tip 1: If you wear makeup often, invest in a proper makeup remover to remove all traces of the makeup. Not removing makeup from your skin properly clogs it up and limits the amount of air circulating on the skin, causing the skin to become dryer and oilier. Water will not remove makeup effectively.
Tip 2: Before investing in facial skin care products, make sure that you take particular notice of your skin type, as well as the type of environment that you are in most of the time. For example, if you are outdoors most of the time, you may want to choose products that contain sunscreen in them or have extra moisturizers to help keep skin rejuvenated and avoid damage. If you have oily skin, use products formulated especially for oily skin.
Tip 3: When you buy a new facial skincare product, make sure that you test it an inconspicuous part of your face first before applying it to your whole face. Many people have sensitive skin types and when they try a new product, it may cause a reaction such as a rash. By testing a small part of your skin, such as behind the earlobe, you will know if you have a sensitivity to the skin care product without running the risk of having a rash over your face.
Tip 4: Never be rough with your skin. By rubbing or scrubbing at your face, you are not making it cleaner. In fact, you are probably causing it a great deal of damage since the skin is so delicate. Have a daily skincare regimen and gently apply skincare products to your face with a cotton ball or soft tissues. Never use anything harder than those – scrubbing brushes are for scrubbing hands and nails, not faces.
Tip 5: Protect your skin with moisturizing sunscreens. Always use a maximum protection sunscreen, especially if you are out in the sun or wind for long periods of time. One of the leading causes of premature aging is sun and wind damage. As well as using sunscreen, make sure to wear a hat out in the sun to protect your skin.
By following some simple cost effective tips such as the ones listed above and choosing good-quality facial skincare products and using them regularly, you can reduce the risk of premature aging quite substantially. Remember to moisturize regularly this is the most important part of taking care of your skin.
