To keep your skin younger looking and more healthy, opt for using self-tanners and lotions instead of sitting out in the sun, or going to an indoor tanning salon. Whether it is natural or artificial sunlight, the UVA and UVB rays are still damaging to your skin. You can get that same look in the safety of a self-tanning cream or lotion without the damaging side effects.
Beware skin of care products claiming to be natural or organic. Many of these claims are made with little or no verification. If you want your skin care products to be environmentally friendly, look for the National Products Association’s Natural Seal. Products bearing this label are guaranteed to be a least 95 natural and without known risks to human health.
Know what type of skin you have. This can help you take care of your skin better and find products that will work for you. You should base your skin care routine on your skin type. Use products only made for your specific skin type for the best results.
Avoid the use of neon lighting in your bathroom. Neon lights damage your skin and make everything appear harsher. When putting on make up, they make you feel that you don’t have enough and you may end up going overboard. Try to set a nice, spa like mood in your bathroom by using dimmed lighting with candle wall sconces as a lighting alternative.
Sunscreen is not just for summertime. If you live in an area where there is snow in the winter, you are exposing your skin to the damages caused by the winter sun and snow glare. Make sure you apply sunscreen before going out if the sun is shining on the snow.
Try applying your facial sunscreen with a sponge. The sponge method will help prevent the sticky sometimes thick feeling that can come with apply sunscreen to your face. An added bonus is that the sunscreen will penetrate your skin better with the sponge method giving you extra added protection.
If for whatever reason you can not mist and moisturize at the same time, then you should search for a mister that has an emollient, such as glycerin, that will prevent your skin from getting dried out. Look for these products in various speciality bath care shops.
Avoid applying too much anti-blemish cream to your face if you’re not also moisturizing. Most of these OTC products contain peroxide, which can be very harsh and dry up your skin. Dry skin will crack and become infected, leading to more blemishes. Moisturizing will help to prevent this from happening.
