Beautiful skin is more than just about having the perfect skin condition and despite having a face that looks clean it does not mean that you are doing the correct thing of maintaining it that way. Some may scoff at the mere thought of this idea and others just have the time to stick to this regime as part of their lifestyle. However, for the people that does follow this type of routine they will definitely find it very rewarding. So in essence whatever your body requires for a healthy living will also be useful to keep your skin healthy, as keeping it in good condition will benefit you in more way than one.
The first thing that you need to do before you decide on what is the best option to keep your skin looking healthy is to find out what skin type you have. This is because the products that are out there are not suitable for everyone, and choosing the right one will work as the product claims it will. If, however you choose the wrong one it will not only not keep your skin looking healthy but in some cases make the condition worse than it originally was. There are a variety of skin types such as normal skin, sensitive skin, skin type that was damages because of the heat and the sun as well as oily skin, so when you are going out to buy the products read the label carefully before you purchase anything. Other factors that you need to take into consideration includes the type of medication that you are taking, if any, the level of stress that you are exposed, the history of the skin condition in your family and the diet that you have.
Let’s start with the basics first, so your usual skin care regime should consist of the following three items which includes moisturizing, cleaning and exfoliating. One of the easiest things that you can do yourself at home is cleaning, the key is to find a cleanser that will provide you with the results that you desire while leaving your skin free from irritation. And if you like the result of the cleanser that you have chosen then you can keep on using it, however if your skin gets irritated it is best advisable that you change the cleanser. If you feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of products that you can choose from, ask for assistance as they may be able to help you. The only areas of your body that is suitable for soap is the neck and below, using the soap any where near your face is not advisable as it can damage the layers of skin on your face.
To the cleaning, you would then need to add to your regime a good exfoliate. What exfoliating does is that it basically takes off the top layer of your skin and removes all the dead cells that are there. The objective of exfoliating is to remove the old layers of skin from your face and make it look younger than it was before. However it is advisable not to go overboard with exfoliating especially the ones that are done by the professional. If you use it more than once a week you will find that your skin will start to peel off.
And finally it is essential that you hydrate your skin as you will lose the oils that are important to your skin as they are secreted out by the glands onto the outer layer of your skin. This is why sometimes you will see people with dull and dry skin as there is not enough moisture locked in the skin. The remedy for such a condition is to apply a lotion or cream onto the skin immediately after you have showered, the reason being is that after a hot shower your pores are still open which will allow the cream or lotion to be absorbed much better into the skin. However, you should also take note as not to clog the pores with excessive amount of the facial product as they need air as well, make sure to use only a small amount of it.
Besides these, there are many other factors that you need to watch out for such as the food that you eat. This is because certain foods will also affect your skin condition, however if you do follow these simple steps you can be for certain that you are on your way to having healthy looking skin.
