We all wish our skin looked great every day. Having a “good skin day” is similar to wanting a “good hair day.” Happily, there is a lot you can do to increase the chance that your skin will be beautiful day in and day out.
In fact, some simple habit changes are sometimes all you need to go from sometimes good and sometimes bad to all the time good. OK, what are some steps you can take to ensure a “good skin day” daily?
Here are some suggestions you can implement immediately.
The right facial and eye creams
By now you are probably really tired of people telling you that you need to wear sunscreen if you want to have good skin. The reason that people always tell you to wear sunscreen outside is because it definitely helps. If you go out to the beach, or simply walk outside a great deal, you need to have sunscreen at all times on your face to protect it from aging too rapidly. To protect your face and body at the same time, apply sunblock or sunscreen to your entire epidermal layer. The only way these creams or foundations will help you is if there is SPF protection in it – make sure before you buy it!
Getting the best anti-aging or eye cream is also important. Because the skin around and especially below the eyes is very sensitive you must take great care in choosing the right product. Go for quality eye care products that are non-greasy and also provide you with the benefits of smoothing out lines around the eyes. All-round eye and anti-ageing cream like Revitol eye cream, Dermology, Elite Serum Rx, Dr. Brandt or Shiseido all provide the benefit of reducing the dark looking skin under your eyes, plus moisterizing the skin and getting rid of lines and wrinkles. If you have a very sensitive skin or are allergic to certain product, then make sure to review the product ingredients carefully before purchasing any of these eye creams.
Choosing the right facial cleanser
Since your cleanser is your first line of defense, choose it carefully. There are two important features you want from your cleanser – it must be both effective in cleaning your skin and it must be mild. Another consideration is the type of cleanser you use. Cream and oil-based cleansers are heavier on your skin. A better choice is one of the lathering soaps which are much lighter. Even better is a cleanser that will hydrate your skin. This means that it won’t remove the moisture from your skin. Your skin must retain its moisture in order to be – and look – radiant and healthy. This may be hard at first because there are numerous cleansers to choose from and knowing the differences between them can be tricky. Take the time to read the labels of the different cleansers so you’ll know what you are buying before parting with your hard-earned money.
Healthy diet and lifestyle
It’s no secret that sugar and sweet foods are bad for your teeth as well as your body. Did you know that eating a lot of sweets can also be really bad for your skin? Collagen is vital to the appearance of our skin. It keeps it healthy and elastic. However, the process that the body uses to break down sugar also breaks down collagen. It keeps your skin firm and smooth and when it breaks down, sagging, wrinkles and other problems can happen. It stands to reason that if you cut back on sweets and sugar-laden foods, you will enjoy better health for your skin. Your health and your body will be so glad to have to not have to handle as much sweets. It’s not difficult to keep your skin looking lovely each and every day, and the good news is it doesn’t have to take hours to accomplish. There are lots of things that you can do to improve your chances of having great skin every single day. Your skin’s condition doesn’t specifically revolve around your choice of skin care products. How you choose to lead your life and your daily habits can also make a big difference in the quality of your skin. In this post, we’ve given you some things to think about adding to your skin care regimen. A little bit of research and homework will turn up plenty more that you can do right now!
