    Default Seven Best Skin Care Tips

    If you thought that maintaining a glowing healthy skin needed lot of time and money, you thought wrong! If you have a skin care regime in place, your skin will be looking its best without much effort. With some of the best skin care tips listed below, your skin care regime will not only be simple, but chances are, you will not be forgetting any step in a hurry.

    Protect Your Skin

    To prevent premature aging and its various signs like roughness, dry skin, freckles, wrinkles and age spots, make sure you have adequate protection in place for you skin from sun. Failure to do so may result in even more dangerous skin problems like skin cancer. That is why, before you go out, apply a good sunscreen, at least 15 to 30 minutes earlier. If you are going to stay for a long period under the sun, then, according to UCLA Today, do not forget to reapply it after few hours. Your dress and accessories should also protect you from sun; so if you are planning to be in the sun for the whole day, wear long sleeved dresses or long pants and carry a wide-brimmed hat on your head. The best skin care option is to stay out of sun from 10 am to 4 pm.

    Discard Old Products

    When using various skin care products, see their expiry date from time to time. If they are well past the dates or those skin care products that have not been used for the last three months or so, throw them in the waste basket! So if your moisturizer or lotion smells funny, or if you see water separately on top of your lotion or cream, do not think of using them anymore! Using such skin-care items or makeup items can cause skin irritation, rash and redness as most often they contain bacteria.

    Limit Sodium

    The next best skin care tip is using salt as little as possible. Salt makes your body dehydrated; hence your skin becomes dry, sallow and cracked. While purchasing a product, check out the sodium content from its label; better still, limit those foods that are loaded with sodium. That is why it is very important to drink eight glasses of water everyday to keep your skin hydrated.

    Wash Your Face

    Face should be washed twice daily; once in morning and once in evening. For oily skin, use an antibacterial, gentle cleanser and for dry skin, a cleanser that is moisturizing. Remember one of the best skin care tips everyone swears by --- removing makeup before hitting your bed.

    Use Toner

    Follow the ritual of using a toner after cleansing your skin and before moisturizing it. Your skin is further cleaned and pored are refined by the toner while removing the last bits of makeup or oil. This will help to retain the moisture in your skin and also save the skin's pores from impurities and environmental pollutants. Use a cosmetic pad or cotton ball to smooth it over your face; especially those areas that are prone to oil like your nose, forehead or chin.

    Moisturize

    The next best skin care tip is how to use moisturizer properly. It should be used after toning your face and also anytime you feel dry. Depending on your skin type, use a proper pH-balanced moisturizer. Go for those moisturizers that are lightweight and does not contain harsh chemicals. Other things that a good moisturizer should not have are additives like artificial fragrances or color. Your skin will be free of impurities and a healthy fluid balance will be maintained if you use the right type of moisturizer.

    Exfoliate

    The last tip is using exfoliator. Exfoliation should be done with gentle products that are primed to suit your skin type. Exfoliation can be done once or twice a week by those who have dry skin and not more; but those with oily skin or having acne problem, can exfoliate five to four times a week. As for how to do it, first wash your face, dry it and then exfoliate it.

    Exfoliation is crucial for every skin care regime. Without scrubbing the skin surface it is impossible to make any combination for the facial surface to work.

    Thanks for the tips Chancellor. I am happy to see you stressed the use of a good sunscreen. A lot of people don't get this part of skin care yet so the more it is mentioned the better.

    I always think that keeping the skin moisturized is the most important thing to make the skin softer and smoother.
    Knowing the best hair loss treatments and eyecreams is worth the while.

    Moisturizing is very important for proper skin care. By using the right Moisturizer you can prevent the dryness from escalating further into cracked and flaky skin. A successful moisturizer will be one that has a good mix of constituents that refill the natural ingredients of the skin that help uphold its structure. A few ingredients normally found in an up to date moisturizer include Glycerol, Ceramides, Hydroxy Acids and Niacinamide. Glycerol facilitates water along with other moisturizer elements to go through the skin and get to the places required. Ceramides replenishes oils in the skin. Hydroxy Acids facilitates exfoliation of skin cells that are dead. Niacinamide makes the skin to increase production of oils, and may possibly assist in reversing the marks of sun damage. Just like how skin types are different, the moisturizers also vary in their action and constituents.

    A good moisturizer is simply using oils. Spritz your face with water then apply an oil that is good for your skin type. Exfoilate your face once a week to take off the dead cells so that the oils can penetrate through the skin.
