Top 5 Skincare Tips to Improve Your Health and Looks
Skincare is far more complicated than you may expect. You can’t just slap a couple of creams on your skin and go about your day.
While I don’t have time to give you the full explanation, I will give you the five most useful tips to improve your health and looks!
#1 Always Cleanse
Cleansing your skin is highly important. Dead skin cells and germs will build up without a cleansing every now and then. Without proper care, your face will get acne, blackheads, even boils.
A cleanser removes those harmful germs and dead skin, leaving you with smooth, healthy skin instead. Sure, you may still get a touch of acne on occasion, but it’s far better than having it all the time!
#2 Less is More
The ideal skincare regimen isn’t piling ten different products onto your skin. If anything, you should look or products that require as few things as possible.
I don’t mean that you should exclude any of the necessary ingredients to keep your skin healthy. What I do mean is you should look for a product that contains several of them at once, rather than just one. Having all the benefits in one or two products limits the risk of your skin getting over-worked.
#3 Organic Beats Cheap
There are plenty of cheap, processed cleansers and moisturizers out there. Unfortunately, cheap doesn’t mean good. When it comes to the health of your skin, spending a little extra is always worth it.
Cheap products contain chemicals that will damage your skin over time. They may work well now, but after a few years, the effects will begin to show up.
Using organic products removes the risk of damage from chemicals and has the same if not more positive effects. Health is wealth!
#4 When in Doubt, Leave it Alone!
Sometimes, acne and other things will appear on your skin. This can happen even if you’ve been taking good care of it. Your first instinct may be to scratch or pop them. I would strongly advise against doing so. Opening up acne, fungi, and other infectious things that grow on your skin, they can spread further.
When you’re unsure how to treat something on your skin, the best thing to is leave it alone. When dirt gets trapped in your pores, the pore gets enlarged. Removing it by hand only enlarges the pore further and makes even more susceptible to later infection.
#5 Consult a Doctor
When it comes down to it, you can follow your skincare regimen as far as you like. However, each of us has a different skin type, and most of us aren’t aware of how to treat everything that happens to our skin.
When you reach this point, the best thing to do is ask someone who does know all these things. It’s always best to make sure your skin gets the best whether that comes from you or a skin specialist.
