Protection against sun damage
Scientists are always warning about the dangers of UV rays and how harmful the sun has become in the past few years. Sunscreen remains the best weapon against sun damage but, sometimes, it can be difficult to know how much you should apply. For the face, neck and ear area, it is recommended that you fill the hollow of your hand with sunscreen. Choose one that has, at least, SPF30, as the area we are talking about, is pretty sensitive. The quantity mentioned above should be enough for two coats, which will deliver the necessary protection against sun damage.
Scrubbing, necessary for healthy skin
Whether you are aware of this for a fact or not, the skin replaces itself on a regular basis. However, during the winter, the skin turnover might be more reduced, and the accumulation of dead cells at the level of the surface might cause a general aspect. If you want a youthful appearance, you need to apply a scrub at least once a week. The best scrub is the one made from natural ingredients, so you can quickly prepare one at home by mixing brown sugar with honey.
Breakfast for the skin
When we think about our breakfast choices, we want them to provide us with energy, reduce the risk of getting fat or prevent gastrointestinal problems. But we never stop and think that breakfast might be good for the skin. So, if you are looking to restore a healthy-looking glow to your body, you need to eat more almonds at breakfast. These are chock full of healthy fatty acids, reducing the inflammation at the level of the skin and making fine lines & wrinkles less noticeable.
Three-step skin care routine
If you want to have beautiful skin, you need to follow the three-step skin care routine at all times. Number one, use the best cleanser out there, to remove impurities accumulated at the level of the skin. Two, go for a toner that is suitable for your skin type. Last, but not least, choose a moisturizer to hydrate the skin and deliver protection against the sun at the same time. If you follow this skin care routine, you won’t have any problems to worry about.
Thermal spring water
We have often heard about thermal spring water and how beneficial it can be for the health of the skin. There is no better moment than the present to try it out. It can help you reduce the overall dryness, especially if you are stuck in traffic or have to work late. There are countless of products out there that contain thermal spring water, many of them containing other beneficial ingredients such as selenium and providing protection against UV damage as well.
Whether you want to admit it or not, stress can have devastating effects when it comes to the health of the skin. The more stressed you are, the more imbalanced your hormones are going to be, with the risk of breakouts being higher than ever. So, you need to keep the stress under control. Concentrate on one single task at once, listen to music and meditate. Shut off your cell phone when you are home, engage in pleasant activities and forget about your worries. Your skin will thank you.
Even if you apply sunscreen in the morning, you should know that its effect will wear off in a couple of hours. If you do not have the time to re-apply sunscreen lotion, you can purchase a small powder sunscreen and carry it around with you. This product is perfect for easy touch-ups, being light and helping your skin to look fantastic.
These are seven skin care tips you cannot afford to miss, especially if you want to look fantastic at all times. We recommend that you give them a try, convincing yourself of their efficiency on their own.
