Glowing and flawless skin is just a few steps away! Looking in the mirror every day, gives you a trauma? Acne breakouts, pigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, tanning, open pores and so on. A correct face care regime begins with identification of the skin type. There are four types of skin: oily, combination, normal and dry. You need to choose cosmetic products according to your skin type. If an oily skin type person uses a milk cleanser for cleansing, he/ she will end up with more breakouts and a runny layer of oil over the face. Next time, while purchasing a cosmetic product spend a few minutes to read about the ingredients.
What to look for in ingredients?
There are chemicals like drying alcohol, chemical screens, dyes, fragrance and so on that can suffocate your skin. The artificial fragrance though looks pleasing, but they have negative reactions like migraines, allergies, sinus issues, and nausea. Also look on the allergic constituents. AS Herbal products are not that acidic in nature. They do not contain artificial fragrance. The herbal products are neutral with 7 pH level. Hence, they are more effective in comparison to chemical-based products.
FIVE STEPS FOR THE GLOWING SKIN
Cleansing is a first and an essential step in face care routine. It removes dirt and impurity. Apply cleanser from face to neck and gently massage in a circular motion. Then, wash your face and pat dry with the towel. Oily skin people should avoid using milk cleanser. Also, foam cleanser is not suitable for dry skin.
Exfoliation is a significant step in face care regime. It removes dead skin cell. Excess dead skin cell causes blocked pores and acne breakouts. Exfoliation or scrubbing can be done once in a week.
Generally, this step is neglect by many people because they believe that dirt has already vanished through the cleansing process. However, this not the truth. Toner removes the leftover dirt particles and maintains the pH balance of the skin. Dab a cotton pad soaked with toner over your face and neck. It detoxifies and tightens the skin. Alcohol toner can dry your skin, so choose your toner wisely.
There are four types of moisturizers: Serum, hydrating lotion, emulsion, and cream. Dry skin people should use hydrating serum and cream. Oily skin type can use the serum first then emulsion.
Direct exposure of skin to UV rays causes cancer, sunburn, tanning, hyperpigmentation, and rashes. Excessive exposure to sun heat can dehydrate the skin. Hence, a protective layer of sunscreen is necessary for flawless skin. One should use at least SPF 50 above sunscreen.
Only cosmetic products cannot help you in achieving healthy skin! A balanced diet is an essential need for your skin and overall well-being. Avoid consumption of sugar and caffeine, as they activate inflammations and binds to the collagen. This can make your skin rough. An ice massage over face and cold water wash can shrink your open pores. It’s time to rejuvenate your skin with herbal products without worrying about side-effects.
