We all crave for a young, healthy, radiant, glowing skin. To achieve this, it is very important that we pay regular attention to and pamper our skin; lovingly and caringly with a good skin care regime.
Cleansing, Rejuvenate, Resurface, Hydrate and Protecting your skin is an important phase of Skin Care Regime. They yield effective and maximum benefit to the skin.
There are different skin types. Hence, the skin care routine will differ accordingly. Choosing the correct skin care products for your skin type is very important.
Start now with a daily regime of Cleansing, Rejuvenating, Resurfacing (correcting), moisturizing, and Protecting (using an SPF). Once you get use to doing it daily you will look a lot healthier and feel good about yourself.
We are born with a perfect, smooth skin, free of wrinkles, marks, scars, blemishes etc. But if you have a total disregard for skin care and follow a non-caring lifestyle, you will place extra wear and tear on your skin and in so doing, cause stress to the skin, which will result in a tired, unhealthy, dull and wrinkly looking skin. Without the proper care, not only will wrinkles form, but you could get an un-toned hyperpigmentation complexion, and more chance for the skin to bag and sag.
To keep wrinkles and lines in check, you need to look after the following constituents of your skin:
Youthful anti-aging wrinkle-free skin can be achieved with consistent care. Nourishing the dermis and epidermis will assist with the elasticity of the skin, and will promote an anti-ageing, wrinkle-free ageless skin.
Skin care - the steps
Although the above will assist in giving you a younger looking skin, it must be kept in mind that the regimen must be followed every day - that is - not skipping any day or not doing it when coming in too late or too tired.Good skincare is important, but good nutrition is also required for a healthy ageless, smooth and wrinkle-free skin. Supplying the body with the needed vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, proteins and fats, in a healthy non-toxic diet, will greatly improve the odds at fighting wrinkles and lines.The skin should be exfoliated at regular intervals to help remove dead skin cells from the surface in order for your skin to have that radiant look. An effective moisturizer will assist nature to keep your skin hydrated and can help stimulate new cell growth.The dermis gives the skin its elasticity and strength, but it also needs to be protected from the sun and other environmental elements.
The first and most important step in any skin care regime is cleansing. Cleansers are a must in order to clean your face at the end of each day, as your face is exposed to dust, pollution, smoke, and other factors that we encounter during the day. A cleanser will remove all impurities leaving your face clean and fresh again, gently exfoliating the skin to remove the dead skin cells, which can block your pores and lead to blackheads. Products which contain AHA’s (alpha hydroxyl acids), such as glycolic acid and BHA’s (beta hydroxyl acid) such as salicylic acid, will help to increase skin exfoliation, making the skin appear smoother and feel softer.
One of the best skin care treatments you can add to your anti ageing skin care routine is the use of a professional moisturiser. A moisturiser provides a protective film to prevent the effect of drying, chapping and roughening caused by the weather, central heating and pollution. At the same time some of the ingredients will be absorbed into the outer layers of the skin providing nourishment, hydration and therapeutic effects. All skin types need a moisturiser. Dry, normal and oily skin are all affected by wind and weather. Dry skin in particular quickly becomes tight and flaky, chapping and reddening easily in winter and looking prematurely old.
There are a wide range of skin care products available. It has been said that you need to start young with a good skin care regime, but in reality you can start at any time. You do need to recognise that the regime must be carried through - it is not a quick fix. Ageing can be delayed or even reversed with a natural approach that includes optimal diet, lifestyle and product choices. To look good, you have to work at it.
