There’s no doubt that your skin changes as you get older. And skin care these days is most often associated with anti aging.
I think few would argue that if your skin looks smooth and in good condition, you’ll look younger.
When you think of skin care, it’s more than likely that what comes to mind will be your face.
After all, it’s the face which is the main element of the physical public image. The face reflects personality and health.
And in conversation we address someone to their face; the face is the focal point of communication.
The eyes, mouth and ears are all part of the physical look of a woman that most people will concentrate on.
So if you want to look your best, then you should have a good understanding of basic facial skin care.
Basic facial skin care
It’s not just make up which should be a part of your facial beauty routine. Attending to basic daily skin care comes first, and that should entail:
- Wash the face well, but with a gentle and natural cleanser if possible. This will remove the grime that builds up in tiny particles all day, as well as any make up for those who use it. It’s important to be patient and be sure that every part of the face gets equal attention. Twice a day cleansing is best, especially if you’re exposed to city pollutants for much of the day. The cleansing should also help to remove bacteria that may lead to skin problems.
- Keep the skin well moisturized. Using natural skin lotions will help to keep your skin smooth and supple. And because they’re natural, dangerous chemicals aren’t absorbed into your body. Remember, aromatherapy is effective because the skin aborbs the essential oils. Any chemical you put on your skin can enter the body.
- Every time you attend to your skin, remind yourself that you don’t just need external care. In the end, what you eat and drink dictates what your skin will look like. So, think about your diet when you are looking after your skin. And when you are eating and drinking, think about your skin.
In a way, skin care is a 24 hour a day activity, but you don’t need to sit in front of a mirror all that time. Go about your normal life, but care for yourself well. The most basic of all skin care needs are:
- Healthy diet.
- Regular exercise.
- Nutritional supplements where necessary.
- Plenty of sleep.
Provide your skin will all these things and you’ll give it the best chance of looking great for longer. It really is that simple!
