I am sure we all know that our skin is a major sense organ and it plays a vital role in protecting our body from various diseases, germs and pathogens that want to move into the body.
I promise after reading this article you will understand basic tips on how to take good care of your skin.
The human skin is the outer layer of the body. The skin tends to be one of the largest organs with about seven layers. The seven layers consist of the epidermis, the dermal layer which protects the underlying muscles. The skin is the part of the body that is always in contact with the environment and so therefore, it plays a very imperative role in protecting our immune system. It protects our body against pathogens and excess loss of water. Other roles the skin plays include regulating the body temperature and so many other roles. The skin also serves as an insulator for the body.
Our skin is one of the most sensitive parts of the body, so therefore we need to take proper care of our skin to avoid infections and other damages that may be caused on the skin.
Caring for the skin goes beyond what we think; it goes beyond just washing or cleaning the skin and rubbing the skin with body lotion or cream.
The kind of food we eat also plays a vital role in maintaining our skin or keeping our skin in a good state. When treating your skin always, don’t use additional treatments like moisturizing masks and exfoliating scrubs that don’t suit your skin.
Since we have said taking care of your skin requires you to use additional treatments that suit your body complexion then let’s talk about caring for your unique or specific skin type.
Firstly when taking care of the skin always look for evenness in your skin complexion. Ensure your skin is having its natural and perfect complexion. Avoid having different skin color at the different point of your body. Avoid too oily or too dry skin, avoid irritating skin and on a final note ensure your skin is balanced.
Another tip is cleaning our skin pores, clean your skin pores by washing the skin daily. Also, endeavor to make use of cleansers to remove germs and dirt from the body. Doing this makes your pores light, which indicates you have a normal skin. Having tight skin pores indicates an abnormal skin. Normal skins indicate radiant and nice complexion. Always endeavor your skin is not dehydrated (Always take a substantial quantity of water) and not too oily(Avoid over using lotions on your body).
Always use a cleanser or gel to clean the face at least twice a day (morning and before going to bed). These cleaners are known to have moisturizing effects that help in keeping the body clean and hydrated.
Also after making use of the cleanser, it’s advisable to use a toner twice also. This gives the skin added benefits like hydration, skin moisturizing and closing up pores. In summary, using a toner after a cleanser is good for the health and it also makes you feel good.
Note: when making use of a toner always try to get toners with antioxidants like green tea, Vitamin C or Vitamin E.
Stay away from toners that contain alcohol, using toners with alcohol can cause hydration of the skin and production of wrinkles.
How do I use the toner
It’s so simple, most toners are in the liquid state of matter. Get a cotton wool and damp with the toner which you will use to rub your face. Don’t rinse the toner off after applying to your skin. Likewise, if you have your toner in a spray bottle then you can just spray on the face and allow the face absorb the toner.
Use antioxidants serum as it helps in protecting the skin against environmental pollutants like the greenhouse gases, dust and so. Using the antioxidants gives you a brightened mood, and makes you look younger. A lightweight serum will be very instrumental in delivering powerful antioxidants. When getting antioxidants for your skin, always look for antioxidants with vitamin C, Vitamin E, retinol and green tea. Serums are the best as they provide you with more than 70% active ingredient.
Use skin moisturizer
Also, try using moisturizer. When using moisturizer always endeavor to get the moisturizer with SPF. Using the moisturizer with SPF works holistically for your health and it makes your skin look best.
Use good creams and nice lotions
Don’t just use cream during the day. Always use the cream at night to keep your skin moist. Using creams at night makes the cream work perfectly for you as its functioning is not interrupted by any particles.
Follow beauty routine
This may sound weird but it is also very important in maintaining or having a good skin.
Also, you can try using skin care products that are manufactured to work for your lower skin layer.
Wash off makeup of your face
Ensure you wash your face and entire body to get rid of makeups, makeups, and foundations can cause the pore holes to be covered.
