Imagine that you wake up in the morning and you notice how rough and tense your skin is. That would be, indeed, a wakeup call for your to start a healthy and effective skin care regime. There are certain steps, that if neglected, can cause a disastrous skin domino effect.
Firstly, it is important that you use proper skin products. Every evening remove traces of your make -up and dirt with a gentle, alcohol-free face cleanser. Never use a regular soap or the shower gel. They often contain harsh chemicals that will cause dry patches on your cheeks not to mention the eye irritation. Secondly, using a high quality moisturizer twice a day should be as natural as brushing your teeth.
Once a week get rid of the exfoliated skin with a face scrub. There are many online recipes how to make a perfect, homemade scrub, however most them are to coarse to be used on sensitive face skin. You don’t want to have your face covered with scratches and red marks.
Mud masks can also improve the condition of your complexion. Those are made of volcano ashes that were dried up on the sun and that are full of vitamin and microelements. You can apply e.g. French Green Mud mask once a week to provide a deep hydration and detoxification. There is a wide range of different masks that will serve different purposes.
What’s more, not many of us realize that the skincare should come from within. You may not see any positive changes if you only focus on creams and cleaners but forget about the diet. If your skin is saggy and looks tired that may be the first sign that you are dehydrated. Next time when you are thirsty get a bottle of water instead of your daily Red Bull can. Swap junk food with fresh fruits and organic vegetables.
Prevention comes first, so you should minimalize exposing your face to sun if you are not wearing a SPF sun cream. It may seem irrelevant because you are still young, but the older you will thank you for that.
