5 Simple steps to a skin care routine and great looking skin
It doesn\’t matter how old you are the effects of a simple skin care routine can make a world of difference. If you are like most of the adult world then you may be working, traveling or staying up late. Perhaps you woke up and discovered that playing hard is starting to take a toll on your skin. But, do not fear the damage can be reversed. Here are 5 simple steps to a skincare routine and great looking skin:
1. Think of your routine like brushing your teeth
Cleanse, tone and moisturize two times a day. Cleanse with warm water using a cleanser specific to your skin type. Be sure to pat dry. Use a cotton pad dampened with a facial toner to balance the PH of the skin. Choose a moisturizer that matches your particular skin type. At different times of the year you may need to alter your products accordingly.
2. Don\’t think of it as an extra step
Use a quality soft bristled facial brush or exfoliating beads to exfoliate and massage without over sensitizing the face. Exfoliation encourages the sloughing off of dead skin cells, stimulates circulation and promotes good skin health.
3. Protect the skin
Daily use of products with a minimum of SPF 15, will help shield your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Look for a sunscreen with a UVA and UVB of at least 15. That\’s right, protect the skin from those harsh sun rays!
4. Eat and drink for healthy skin
Drinking water will hydrate the skin and regulate body temperature. Supplement your diet with foods rich in essential fatty acids, such as flax seed or salmon, to help fortify your skin.
5. Get your beauty rest
Getting adequate sleep is important to give the body and skin time to repair and rejuvenate itself. Sleep helps to support a healthy immune system allowing us to repair and fight any irritations in the skin as well as heal unhealthy tissue. When you fall asleep your body goes into repair mode and regenerates the skin, blood, cells and muscles.
