No matter what your skin type is, it is imperative to keep your skin healthy all year long. Whether you are a teenager who faces major acne breakouts or an adult, looking to win a war against wrinkles, facial care is one of the most important routines that you need to adopt in your day-to-day life. Follow these 3 important facial care tips and you will be on your way to attaining healthier, beautiful looking skin.
- Cleanse, Exfoliate, Moisturize
The importance of cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing cannot be stressed upon enough. You need to clean your face to remove impurities, grime, oils and dirt. Use cleansers and moisturizers that have a neutral pH and are not harmful to the skin. They also need to keep the skin soft and supple.
- Take Care Of Sensitive Areas
The eyes and the lips are particularly sensitive regions on the face and need to be given special attention. The skin that contours the eyes and the skin around your lips, are prone to darkening, wrinkles and fine lines. Use appropriate moisturizers for the face that can hydrate the areas around the eyes and keep your lips hydrated with restorative creams/balms that protect the lips from the harmful UV rays.
- Choose The Right Make Up
Makeup should be easy-to-remove, hypoallergenic and should suit your skin type. Replace your old makeup brushes and sponges regularly. Before you apply makeup, run an ice cube over your skin to tighten pores, apply generous amounts of sunscreen and make sure you invest in a good makeup remover to thoroughly remove your makeup before you go to bed every night.
Apart from these three important ways of protecting your skin, you need to hydrate yourself with plenty of water, consume foods rich in vitamins and minerals and also avoid stress in general. Stress is detrimental to skin overall and could be the catalyst for wrinkled skin and acne on the face, neck, chest, back and arms.
