There is more to healthy skin than a pretty face. Your entire body deserves healthy skin so be sure to pay close attention to all areas. Keep reading for some insights into creating a skin care regimen that contributes to healthy living.
Avoid shaving your skin when it’s dry. Also, add a moisturizing, lathering shaving product. If you shave your dry skin, you will irritate it and might end up with razor burns and ingrown hairs. Make sure to moisturize after shaving. You will relieve irritation and increase the moisture level of your skin.
Avoid putting on wet socks or gloves. Wet gloves and socks can really irritate the skin and cause cracking or itching, and can even cause eczema to flare up.
Clean sunglasses and glasses weekly – especially if you wear them on a daily basis. The bridge on a pair of glasses can get extremely dirty and contribute to clogging your pores. Use a gentle soap and water solution to get the dirt off the bridge of your glasses.
Even if your skin is oily, you still need to moisturize. Use moisturizer after you are finished cleaning your face. While you may feel that it isn’t necessary, it actually aids in balancing the skin’s oil production. If you have naturally oily skin and you dry it out with a strong cleanser, your skin will overcompensate and create even more oil.
Keep hands covered in the cold. Your hands have thinner skin than other areas of your body, making the skin more prone to irritation and cracks. Wearing gloves during this time can ensure your hands are safe and well hydrated.
Body wash can cause dryness to your skin, sometimes more than environmental factors will. To avoid having dry skin, try to choose body washes that contain moisturizers and vitamins. Vitamins in the body wash will help your skin grow and you will be moisturized.
Tissue testing is a simple method for determining your skin type. By applying a tissue directly to the facial surface upon waking, the quantity of oil that remains on it will indicate whether your skin is oily, dry or a combination of the two. With this knowledge, you will have a much easier time creating a skin care plan.
Lemon juice is as effective at bleaching skin blemishes as it is at bleaching your hair. Lemon juice can be applied directly to spots, blemishes or scars to help them fade away naturally. It is not a permanent fix, and you will need to keep doing it over time to see the same results, but it is much healthier and safer than chemical alternatives.
