If you're reading this, you've obviously made up your mind to start taking better care of your skin. The answer is below, so read on!
Use cosmetics in moderation. Oftentimes powdered makeup and foundations are not good for your skin. This can cause acne, or make your current situation worse. Occasionally, makeup applied over acne can even cause an infection. Not using makeup until your acne outbreaks clear up is a good option. Do not be tempted to hide your pimples behind a toner or concealer.
A homemade mask is the key to glowing skin. Grind raw almonds along with milk and olive oil until it forms a semi-smooth paste. Also ground up some orange peels and add them. Apply the mask to your facial area and then let it remain for a quarter of an hour. Wash the mixture off of your face. Next take an ice cube and rub it on your facial skin.
Make sure you never put on wet gloves or socks. If you have wet clothes like socks, this can irritate skin and cause flaking, bleeding, or eczema.
It is possible to make your own lip balm for dry, chapped lips. If you want a natural remedy, try mixing honey, sour cream and cucumber and put it on your lips for about 15 minutes. When time is up, rinse the mixture with water and add a bit of almond oil to your lips, which protects the skin and seals in moisture.
If you want to look good, stay away from tanning booths. Many people are under the assumption that a tan will make them look younger, but nothing could be further from the truth. Tanning will damage your skin and age it prematurely.
It is important to protect lips as well. The winter air can dry out your lips. This dry air is the biggest culprit behind dry, chapped lips, sometimes even cracked or bleeding ones. The pain and discomfort from this is both unnecessary and unpleasant. An easy solution is to always use a moisturizing lip balm or moisturizer.
Make sure you know what ingredients are inside your skin products. The less ingredients that are in the product, the better. If your skin is sensitive, additional ingredients may be counterproductive. Therefore, you will be doing more harm than good. It may even cause additional breakouts.
Healthy skin routines are more effective if it is a daily habit. Now you know that good skin is not a lost cause. It is only a matter of committing oneself to obtaining healthy, radiant skin.
