Skin care doesn’t have to be complicated







Skin Care Made Easy

Taking care of your skin is easy when you use our recommendations.  Your skin color, tone, or condition,  doesn’t matter we have a strategy to improve the look and condition of your skin.

Natural Soap

To maintain your skin doesn’t have to cost lots of cash, in fact costly cleansers can often do more harm than good. They aren’t on your body or face long enough to make any difference. A better option is to use an excellent glycerin soap along with clean water. Warm water to apply and then cold or cool water to rinse. This will do an excellent job cleansing your skin, with out stripping important oils from it. Using warm then cold water has a twofold impact. First opening the pores for cleaning next closing them to prevent dirt and oil from entering.

Focusing on status cleaners is a waste of money. Don’t let vanity get in the way of actual progress

Be Gentle With Your Skin

While it is important to clean your skin daily, doing so improperly will cause more harm than good. Here are some daily skin care tips to follow:

  1. Limit bath time. Hot water can remove necessary oils from your skin. Use warm rather than hot water.
  2.  As we mentioned before, use mild natural soaps.
  3. Shave carefully. Make sure and lubricate your skin. Use shaving cream and a sharp clean razor.
  4. Gently pat your skin to dry

Sun Protection

Overexposure to the sun can be detrimental to your skin as well as deadly. Wrinkles, unsightly age spots as well as skin cancer occur when you get too much sunlight over long periods of time.

If you are going to spend time in the sun, make sure and use a sunscreen that is broad-spectrum and has a SPF level of at least 15. You should reapply at least every two hours or even more often if you are sweating or swimming.

If possible stay out of the sun between 10 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon which is when the sun will be the strongest. Add a layer of light loose fitting protective clothing as well as a wide brimmed hat.

Tobacco Is A No No

If you ever look at lifetime smokers they don’t age well. This is because smoking narrows the blood vessels in your outer skin layers. This decreases blood flow and depletes your skin of oxygen and necessary nutrients.

Smoking will also cause damage to your collagen and elastin levels. Smoking will also increase your chances of getting skin as well as other cancers.

A Healthy Diet Will Protect Your Skin From The Inside

When you eat healthy natural foods your body will not have to remove toxins. Toxins are often eliminated through the skin. Fruits, vegetables, lean meat and whole grains should be your foods of choice. Avoid processed foods as much as possible. Drink plenty of clean water.

Keep Stress Levels Down

Stress has negative impacts on your entire body including your skin. Acne explosions as well as other skin issues can be the result of stress. Get plenty of rest along with just plain old down time.
