How do famous actresses stay looking so gorgeous as they age? They take especially good care of their skin, which is something YOU can replicate from your own home! Here are some time-tested ideas we’ve gathered to help you with your skin care regimen so you can age gracefully too.
One of the obvious points of skin care is the daily cleansing of your face and pores. If you resist this regular routine, your pores can build up and you will notice annoying blackheads beginning to appear. Simply rinsing them out nightly with warm soap and water is just enough to get the job done.
In order to maximize the benefit of your skin care, you need to set a skin care regimen and stick with it. Constantly switching products can actually cause more damage. If you stay with a single product over the long term, you’re more likely to see positive results. Just experimenting and never staying with anything, will not help you find a routine that works.
One way to improve your skin is to drink plenty of water. Water is the largest part of what makes us up our body at the cellular level; drinking lots of water will not only keep you hydrated, it will keep your cell walls nice and plump. You can also freshen your complexion throughout the day with a micro-mist of water on your face.
Razor bumps are the bane of many men’s workdays. To avoid razor bumps when shaving, you need to use the proper razor. Amazingly, more blades does not always mean a better shave; the recent introduction of 4 and 5 blade razors have actually caused more razor bumps than those that are only double or triple-bladed. Try a high-quality double-bladed razor, preferably one with a disposable head, and you will see that you will wind up with a smoother face.
To keep your skin looking youthful and avoid sun damage, add SPF to your daytime moisturizer. There’s no need to throw out your old moisturizer, though. You can take a moisturizer you have already and put it together with a touch of a lighter lotion that does have sunscreen in it. You can use the same trick with liquid makeup.
To prevent breakouts of acne, try using facial care products that come in a spray-on applicator. This will keep you from transferring bacteria, oils and potentially irritating substances from your hands to your face while applying things like sunscreen or moisturizer. Having a more bacteria-free face can in turn reduce your chances of developing pimples.
For great skin, take the time to breathe more deeply. All the cells in your body need oxygen to function properly and that includes your skin cells. Breathing more deeply, allows more oxygen to enter your blood stream, where it can be re-routed for use in healing, renewing and cleansing skin cells. Staying calm and un-stressed, also allows your body to take in more oxygen and to use it more effectively.
If you have sensitive skin, avoid using cosmetics that are not natural or hypoallergenic. Many popular makeup brands contain harsh irritants, fragrances and other chemicals that can completely irritate your skin. Stick to all-natural cosmetics free of these ingredients and make sure not to mix too many brands as this can also cause a reaction.
If you keep up with your skin care regimen daily, ensuring your skin gets all the nutrients and treatments that it needs to stay soft, supple, and young looking, then you will have no problems in the coming years or even decades. You’ll always look your absolute best at any age!
