I touched my daughter’s forehead last night and realized it was so soft and smooth. I remember having skin like that, but over time I’ve lost moisture and elasticity. If this is happening to you as well, use the below tips and tricks to help your skin regain it’s youthful resiliency.
Wear sunscreen! Too much sun exposure is detrimental to dry skin. It dries you out even more and this can cause break-outs. To stop this before it starts, use a high SPF, preferably, with a moisturizer built in. This will help prevent acne flare-ups and keep your skin looking healthy and fresh.
Eat a healthy diet for healthy skin. A diet loaded with healthy foods such as fruit, whole grains, lean proteins and vegetables, will help you and your skin to stay healthy. Research shows that your skin looks younger when you eat a low fat diet, rich in vitamin C.
Make sure your gloves and socks are dry prior to wearing. These can make your skin irritated and even cause eczema flare ups.
To keep your lips looking smooth and luscious, make sure to wear a lip gloss or lipstick that has sunscreen in it. Just as the sun can damage the rest of your skin, it can also damage your lips, leaving them dried and cracking. Wearing a lip gloss with sunscreen can help protect your lips from the sun’s damaging rays.
Remember, any food that you digest can cause affect your skin. That is why it is important that you avoid foods that are high in salt, smoked foods, spices and food with preserving agents. These sorts of foods can cause you skin to look unhealthy in the long run.
If you have scars, warts, pimples or other age related skin formations or spots, then you should consider undergoing Cryotherapy. Cryotherapy can remove scars and skin imperfections. In these procedures, dry ice is used to destroy damaged cells, leaving your skin looking fresh and new again. This is a serious treatment that should be used only under serious circumstances.
To avoid redness and broken capillaries in your face, avoid exposing your skin to extreme heat. The heat causes increased blood flow to the peripheral areas in your body, which includes the skin of the face. The key areas to avoid are saunas and steam rooms, which get much warmer than any normal hot day.
To keep your skin healthy and supple, dial back that hot shower to a more moderate temperature. A long and steamy hot shower is great therapy for occasional muscle aches and pains. But over time, lengthy hot showers can rob natural oils from your skin, drying it out prematurely. For daily cleansing, keep the shower short and the water temperature set to comfortably warm. Afterwards, use a soft, fluffy towel to gently blot dry.
To help take care of your skin you should treat it gently with mild cleansers, as opposed to strong soaps. People often make the mistake of over-washing their skin, but this actually removes too much oil from the skin, leaving it dry. As well as using a mild cleanser, to keep your skin healthy use a moisturizer to keep your skin feeling soft between washes.
To help with dry skin soothe away problems with Aloe Vera. You can grow the plant for your own use, simply harvest the leaf and cut it open to apply directly to skin. Aloe Vera is also great if you suffer a minor burn from the kitchen. It is found in thousands of over-the-counter products for skin care as well.
Apple Cider Vinegar is wonderful for the skin. It can help your skin maintain its pH balance and can also be used to keep bacteria away. You can turn it into a toner by mixing 1/2 water and 1/2 apple cider vinegar. Just rub it on once each day after you wash your face.
Jasmine plant is a useful, though not widely known facial rejuvenation agent. This little known soothing, deep conditioning oil contains many antioxidants that clarify the skin and help it look its best. Dermatologists recommend this natural and beneficial product.
Make sure the soap your child is using is a soft one. It shouldn’t have any dyes or fragrances in it either. The dyes and fragrances in soaps can dry out their skin and they can cause irritation in children with sensitive skin. This is especially important for very young children.
To help reduce dark circles underneath the eyes, the best remedy is to get plenty of sleep. Sleep helps to reduce the darkening of skin under the eyes. For those who cannot catch up on their sleep, try using products that contain Vitamin K. Getting rid of these circles can help increase one’s confidence level.
The key to shaving without irritation is a sharp blade. Shaving can be one of the trickiest parts of skin care. A sharp blade minimizes potential problems by cleanly cutting hair and passing smoothly over the skin without nicking and scraping. It is often better for skin health to use cheaper blades that can be replaced more frequently than costly blades that tempt the user to economize by shaving with a dull edge.
You should avoid all types of abrasive skin care products for maximum skin health. While abrasive cleansers have their uses in specialized, more clinical environments, for daily cleansing any product that abrades the skin is far too rough. Using such cleansers on a daily basis leaves your skin raw and chafed. Then you are more vulnerable to other, more serious skin problems.
After using all of these methods my skin should return to being soft, beautiful, and taut. Hopefully, yours will too, so let’s set up our own skin care regimens and give it a go! The only way to keep aging at bay is to go the extra mile to take good care of your skin!
