Today, I would like to share with you top 10 tips for healthy, glowing skin by Skin Care Special Report. I will publish the first half report (Consists of 5 tips and the rest I will publish in my next posting). I believe that everyone can have youthful looking skin if they know how to protect their skin from the harmful environment.
Many of us are skin conscious. We often want our skin to look young and healthy and we
really do something just to protect our skin from whatever possible harms there may be in
our environment. Well, our skin is our largest organ performing several functions. It
primarily protects us against the invasion of foreign substances and it serves as the
transfer point for the release of toxins from our bodies, thus our skin is just worthy of
protection and care.
Now, if you found yourself coveting the gorgeous skin of fashion models and celebrities
in most of today’s magazines, here are some tips that will help you on for a beautiful
Tip #1: Drink Water
It is often said that the simplest way to clear and supple skin that is no longer dry is to
drink plenty of water. Water has long been considered as the most effective natural
treatment or an almost free treatment for any skin condition because of its being alkaline,
with pH 7.3. It prevents dehydration which is capable of producing sebum or oil from the
sebaceous glands. Your skin needs water in order for it to function best, thus doctors and
nutritionists recommend that a daily intake of between 6 to 8 glasses of water per day is
Tip #2: Watch Your Diet
Nutrition plays a vital role in skin health too. Specific foods such as those acidic foods
and dairy products are said to be potent in causing an allergic reaction in some people.
Also, one of the widely debated topics in the area of nutrition today is chocolates. Some
say that chocolate does affect the condition of the skin, while others say it doesn’t.
Whatever the result may be, the best recommendation is just to follow a nutritious diet
that has a number of fresh fruits and green-leafy veggies, as well as fiber.
Tip #3: Consider Exfoliants
Many experts say that exfoliating your skin is another great way to attain a beautiful skin.
So, try to invest in a good body exfoliant or “loofah”, as it is commonly called, as it is
capable of eliminating the dead skin cells from your body. Accordingly, this should be
done once or twice a week so to free the skin to breathe. What’s more, exfoliants help to
prevent ingrown hair from developing.
However, it is necessary to avoid using any body exfoliant on the skin on the face. The
main reason for this precaution is that the facial tissue is more sensitive and finer than
those tissues of the body.
Today, there is a myriad of exfoliating sponges in the market, as well as a number of
really good exfoliant gels that are especially formulated for the skin on the face.
Nevertheless, one of the necessary things to note is that those people with skin affected
by acne should not apply exfoliating gels or sponges, as these may aggravate the acne
infection. Try to consider those exfoliating products for acne prone skin in the form of a
skin peeling treatment instead. These products are now commonly offered my most
salons anywhere in the world. And, perhaps what is best to consider is to consult a skin
specialist before undertaking any form of skin peel.
Tip #4: Consider a Healthy Routine for Facial Care
When it comes to facial skin care, getting into a healthy beauty routine is not bad. Most
of the doctors today highly recommend that you cleanse, moisturize and tone your skin
twice every day. When cleaning, never fail to remember cleaning the area on the neck,
including your face. Apply a moisturizer or neck cream after.
Before going to bed at night, always remember to remove all make up. Clean your skin
before you sleep, no matter how tired you may feel. It was found out that during the
night, the skin goes through a process of elimination and cannot breathe properly if it is
clogged with make up. And, you may also find out that sleeping with your make up on
will cause your skin to “break out” with spots on it.
When it comes to shaving for men, some men may experience shaving rashes. For many,
these rashes lower their self-esteem, but this is actually not a big problem to think about.
There are a lot ways to avoid rashes. Perhaps one of the best is to make sure that when
shaving, the razor strokes are following the direction of hair growth. That’s simply it!
Also, scarring on the face can sometimes be unsightly. To heal a scar, it is recommended
that you use jasmine or neroli essential oils diluted in carrier oil. This is deemed effective
for elimination facial scars, and it even works on stretch marks too as well. However, if
you noticed that the scar or stretch mark has gone silver or white in color, note that it
cannot be removed anymore. And, if it is pinkish or red in color, there is a great
possibility that it can be healed.
When it comes to bruises, there are arnica creams and ointments out there that are useful
in healing bruises. It is also interesting to know that one way of dealing with bruises fast
and effectively is to use Vicks Vaporub on the affected area.
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 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
