No one has the perfect skin, but there are some essential steps that can be taken to enhance the beauty and radiance of any type of skin. Here are some of the most important steps you should take to ensure that your skin is rejuvenated and its shine is enhanced;
#1: Make use of the right skin cleanser for your skin – cleansers help us remove those unpleasant debris and germs from deep inside the skin. They also help in the removal of dead skin cells, thus renewing the skin’s shiny and elegance. For the oily skin type that is prone to acne breakouts, it will be ideal to use cleansers containing salicylic gel or benzoyl peroxide. For the dry and matured skin type, it will be ideal to consider moisturizing cleansers or those containing glycolic, and milky cleansing ingredients. Skin types that have melisma or brown spot disorders may require a brightening wash/cleanser such as alpha-hydroxyl cleansing solution.
#2: You must wear sunscreen every day of the year – as ladies, we need to consider the fact that our skins are not as thick as men’s, hence, we need to protect our skin from the damaging effects of sunlight. Most women often think that the only time to protect their skin is when they are outdoors or go to the beach on sunny days. This should not be the case; you need to protect your skin even when you are driving your car because daily exposure to UV rays of the sunlight can contribute to skin aging. You may want to consider a sunscreen with SPF rating of 15 or higher. You can also find sunscreen in creams, lotion and even sunglasses.
#3: Exfoliate at least twice in a week – as a lady; you should know that germs can build quickly on the skin, especially from old make-ups, exposure of the skin to different adverse weather conditions, and the use of different skin products. Exfoliation will ensure that germs are eliminated quickly from the skin and its pores, it also enlarges the skin pores and ensure that the skin breathes even more.
#4: Do not use too many skin care products – Many women make the mistake of switching from one beauty care product to another- this will cause more harm than good. When you use too many products at the same time or you switch from one skin care product too frequently, you will end up increasing the sensitivity of your skin and that will increase your risks of acne breakouts and clogged skin pores.
#5: Stay hydrated – staying hydrated is one of the easiest ways of protecting your skin and making it stay healthy and nourished. Make sure you consume the right fluids- most especially water, because fluids increase the elimination of toxic waste from the body and improve blood circulation. The more blood circulates through your skin, the more radiant your skin becomes. You should aim at consuming 8 glasses of water a day and throw in some glasses of fruit and vegetable smoothies, once in a while.
