Tip #5: Heal Your Feet
When it comes to skin care, the feet are often neglected. So, if care you found no time
for a professional pedicure, try to fill a football footbath or basin with warm water and add your
favorite essential oil. Soak your feet for about fifteen minutes. Then, dry them and
apply a rough skin remover onto them. Rinse this off and dry you feet well. And, if you
consider pedicure, simply add some body cream to your feet for an easy and quick fix
Tip #6: Tie Your Fringe Out of Your Face
For many people, trying their fringes out of their faces for a few hours each day is
somehow necessary. The support for this claim is the belief that it will prevent spots
from forming on the forehead, especially if you are prone to oily hair. It is noted that
sometimes, these oily deposits on the hair can be transferred to the skin which eventually
causes the skin to develop acne or any disorder.
Tip #7: Avoid Too Much Exposure to the Sun
One of the most common precautions when it comes to skin care is avoiding too much
exposure to the sun. As you may know, over exposure to sunlight causes sunburn. So,
while current sunblocks only block out the UVB rays and still let in harmful UVA rays, it
is still wise to cover up before venturing into the hands of Apollo. If possible, use a wide
brimmed hat while tending your garden to keep the sun from your face.
Tip #8: Exercise
Aside from considering a healthy diet, exercising your body also helps keep your skin
healthy. Note that a proper exercise does not only keep the body fit by regulating the
oxygen; it also improves the glow of the skin as well.
Tip #9: Take Enough Rest
One common problem that face people is stress; the one which is not normal. It was
found out that when a person is stressed, the adrenal cortex converts adrenal androgens to
the hormone testosterone in male and female, which in turn results in overactive
sebaceous glands. These adrenal androgens are released causing a double amount of
testosterone, causing the face to be oily, while other areas of the body are still dry from
dehydration. So, taking proper rest that includes 6 to 8 hours of undisturbed sleep daily is
the best way to rejuvenate the skin.
Tip #10: Other Helpful Tips for Skin Care
There are a lot of home remedies for skin care. One of the most commonly suggested is
blending the egg white and honey well and then apply them on the face. Experts believe
that this makes your skin smooth and helps to reduce wrinkles.
Also, you should try blending turmeric powder with milk and apply on the face. This
specifically removes the tan and assists in reducing the growth of facial hair. When it is
already applied on the face, scrub it off with a good face scrub and then wash with cold
water. Not the extremely cold water. You can even keep it overnight.
Some experts also recommend blending oatmeal along with curds and tomato juice for
facial care. This is often kept for 20 minutes and washed off with cold water. This is also
potent for removing the tan and keeping the skin light.
Did you know that cucumber juice is an excellent astringent for a beautiful, smooth skin?
Yes it is. Applying cucumber juice on the face helps tighten the skin pores. However, it
is necessary to wash it off after 15 minutes for better result.
Another great tip for skin conscious is to apply Vaseline over the entire body after a
shower. Then, shower again after one hour and repeat this twice a month. This also
improves the condition of the skin.
Finally, you can use glycolic acid (mild peel) and trichloracetic acid (medium peel
solutions. As found out, these peels are safe and not overly aggressive. They do not
necessitate time off from work or social activities, and these peels smoothen, soften and
freshen the skin.
Always note that your skin reflects your health. It is your body’s canvas and one of its
valuable assets. So, for good skin care, start developing healthy habits that generally
protect your valued possession, which the skin, from the outer and inner forces. Your
daily habits mean everything as it is the only skin you’ll ever get.
