In today’s world, where in fashion and looking good have become so very important in our lives, it is almost a necessity more than a hobby to have a beautiful skin and look good. There are different types of skin. For example, one may have a normal skin, one may have an oily skin, one may have a dry skin, one may have a very sensitive skin. So depending on the type of you skin, it becomes necessary to use the right kind of creams, cleansers, sun screens or lotions that suit one’s skin.
The first step is to get to know the type of your skin. After knowing what kind of skin you have, the first thing that you need to take care of is cleansing your skin. You need to select a known and a good quality cleanser. You should not use the cleanser only because your friend or relative has suggested you to use it. But before using it, you need to find out whether your skin properly reacts to the cleanser. It is very important that your skin is not allergic to certain cleansers or you get any kind of rash after using it.
It is not necessary to use a very expensive one at all times. Even, cleansers that are reasonable are good. It is mostly a misconception that costly things are of better quality. You should not use soaps to cleanse your skin. This is because by using only soaps, your skin may become dry and hard. You should use a cleanser which is moist and keeps your skin moist, but not oily, for a good amount of time, even in dry and polluted weather. You should avoid the use of cleanser too often.
Whenever, you are about to fall asleep, it is very important to wash your face with a good cleanser. After washing your face, you should wipe your face with a dry and a clean tissue. What this does is, it helps to clean the pores of your skin from within, removing all the dirt which might have been accumulated inside. At the same time, when you wake up in the morning, you should always splash water on your face to feel and look fresh from within your skin. At the same time, drinking water at regular intervals during the day also helps to have a good skin without any blemishes or marks. This is most commonly recommended by models who follow a daily pattern of maintaining their skin.
When you are removing your make up, make sure that you are removing it fully without any traces. The traces, in any, often cause skin infections because of the use of intense chemicals in make ups. You should use a proper make up remover for this and not a normal cleanser or face wash.
The next step is to apply peels or face scrubs to your skin after a long day’s work or specially when you come back from polluted weather. What the face scrub does is, it eliminates any dirty, unwanted or dead cells of your skin, thus making you look fairer and make your skin appear glowing. It is necessary to use a scrub for your face at least once a week. The scrub should not be too strong. It should not contain huge grains, but it should have tiny particle like grains. This is because big sized particles can often damage your skin by piercing through the skin and thus causing marks or blemishes.
This would ideally serve as a tip for buying a face scrub. If you cannot afford to buy peels or scrubs which are expensive, try and buy the ones which are contained in small packets and use them in small quantities, so that they can last for months together. You then do not need to bother too much about your monthly budget. Some of the most common moisturizers or skin creams are the retinoids. Retinoids are commonly used by old age people. This is because as the skin grows old, it breaks down and creates wrinkles on the face. Retinoids help in reducing the wrinkles on the face to a large extent. Retinoids work as a miracle for aged skin.
You should also use toners. They are most commonly used by models who always use heavy make overs for their skin. Toners help in removing traces of such make overs or excessive oils. But excessive use of toners should be avoided. Instead, use of cleansers is recommended by doctors and dermatologists. On the contrary, if you feel that the toner suits your skin type, go ahead and use it more frequently.
The next step if to moisturize you skin properly. Moisturizing your skin is the most important in today’s modern world. Nowadays, people roam in areas that are heavily populated and polluted as well. Moreover, people need to work for long hours and they sweat a lot at the same time. Due to all these factors, most of the people tend to have a dry skin and moisturizers do the right thing for a dry skin. What moisturizers do is, they help in sucking moisture inside your skin, as and when required.
It is also recommended that you use eye creams. This should be used by people who commonly need to sit late nights or who need to work in shifts. What happens is due to the irregular time and quantity of sleep, dark circles begin to appear beneath the eyes. Sometimes, wrinkles also appear. Eye creams thicken this area, thus keeping it free from any wrinkles. Wrinkles are also caused due to excessive exposure to the sun. For this, use of proper sun screens is recommended. Sun screens should also be used by people in winters, when the skin gets too dry.
So these are some of the tips which are tried and tested by many and thus can be used daily for having a good skin which can last for a lifetime.
