5 Tips To Improving Skin Care

Five key tips that are vital for skin care and will drstically improve the condition of your skin.

Everyone has an ideal or some piece of advice when it comes to a routine that will most benefit the skin. These range from traditional cleansing methods to do-it-yourself skin masks. Granted, there are many avenues we take in caring for our skin. The combination of diet, lifestyle, and cleansing play a vital role in improving the condition of the skin.

Cleanse Skin:

Wash your face daily, this includes the throat and neck area. A cleanser will eliminate dirt, oil, and make-up and exfoliate the skin. Be sure to rinse the cleanser thoroughly. Residue can block pores and cause breakouts. Avoid cleansers that irritate your skin (itching, burning, etc.); these cause more damage.

Drink Plenty of Fluids:

Drinking the recommended eight glasses of water daily is essential to maintaining the skin's elasticity. Limit the intake of sodas and other caffeine drinks. Obsessive caffeine drinking results in dehydration and may lead to other health problems.

Clean Make-up Tools:

Cosmetic brushes and sponges should be cleaned regularly to avoid the spreading of germs and bacteria that lead to breakouts. Brushes and sponges should be soaked at least once a week in warm, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and lay out to dry. After extensive use replace make-up tools.

Avoid Pore-Clogging Products:

Breakouts can be the result of the type of make-up that we use. Avoiding oily products that clog pores will improve complextion. There are skin products such as moisturizers and sunscreen that contain noncomedogenic formulas that reduce the risk of acne. Foundation and moisturizers help in preventing harmful impurities from being absorbed into the skin.

Avoid Stress:

Stress contributes to breakouts, especially in adults. Stress reduction is important and time should be set aside to relieve anxiety. One may try relaxation techniques such as quiet time and meditation. Execise programs can rejuvenate the skin and leave you feeling fresh.
