In this article, we are going to share with you some great information that you can use in order to get healthier skin. So if you are ready to sport skin that is glowing, healthy, and gorgeous, read on!
The first step in getting healthier skin is to make sure you are consistent. Keeping a schedule will help you to see the skin you want in a timely fashion. Each morning, whether you are in the shower or standing before your sink, wash your face, use a toner, and put on a moisturizer/sunscreen. Each night, wash your face gently again, use a toner, and moisturize lightly before bed.
Once a week, you want to engage in a deep “home facial.” This is very similar to what an esthetician will do with your skin when you make an appointment for a facial at a day spa. Stand in front of the sink, and thoroughly (but gently) wash your face and rinse your cleanser off. If you have dry skin, use a creamy cleanser. If your skin is oily, use one that is thin and lathers. Once this cleanser has been removed, exfoliate gently.
When we talk about exfoliating, we mean using a scrub or exfoliating mitt to gently remove the dead skin and debris from the surface of your face and pores. This is something you do want to do twice a week, but no more than this. Exfoliating helps to see a lesser amount of breakouts and blemishes, but exfoliating more than twice per week can actually cause excess oil to be produced. So be very careful about sticking to this rule. Also, when you do exfoliate, do so gently. You do not want to rub your skin raw or cause open wounds.
Once you have exfoliated and rinsed off your scrub (if this is what you chose to use), you will want to use a gentle mask. A clay mask is recommended for skin that is oily or prone to breakouts. It should be applied wet, and make sure that you do not apply any mask on your eyelids or the nostrils of your nose. Allow your mask to dry. Once it has dried completely (after ten or fifteen minutes), rinse gently using warm water until the mask has been thoroughly washed off.
Once the mask you have chosen is off of your face, you will want to wipe with a toner. Then apply moisturizer lightly. This is a good routine for a once-per-week home facial. It is a good idea to do this on a day that you do not plan on leaving the home, and you have nothing to do. Do not wear any makeup after this facial, and let your skin breathe.
In conclusion, it does not take much in order to get healthier skin when you buy an exfoliating glove that is more useful and beautiful than you can imagine. Make sure that you protect your skin from the sun when leaving your home, even on sunny days. Sunscreen is a must. Good luck!
