It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the abundance of skincare products and what they can do for our skin. To maintain healthy skin not just on your face but your whole body, too, you need to focus on most important aspects of skincare.
Here is a simple guide on how to nourish your skin in a healthy and simple way.
1. Know your skin type
Before any actual skincare, you need to identify your skin type to give it exactly what it needs.
If your skin is rough and flaky, you have a dry skin. On the other hand, oily skin tends to be greasy and shiny, probably with large pores. Of course, you could have combination skin, meaning it’s greasy in some areas (usually forehead, nose, and chin), and dry in others like cheeks.
Sensitive skin is a type that may react too strongly to some makeup or skincare products by burning, itching or even stinging.
Lastly, if you have normal skin, it’s clear and balanced.
2. Regular cleaning
Everyday cleaning is essential for proper skincare. By exfoliating your skin, you are helping it to better absorb the nutrients you will apply on it later.
To exfoliate your body, use a body scrub 1-3 times a week. Apply upward strokes – they will make your skin firmer.
You should also used mild exfoliator for your face at least once a week – it would also remove the dead cells and make your skin more plump and radiant.
3. DIY massage
No need to visit a masseuse every day – you can massage your body in the morning, applying warm oil. Apply upward strokes, which will strengthen the skin and give it a toned look.
Massage also improves circulation, which allows nutrient to better enter not just the skin but all the organs in your body.
Face massages are also great to preven your skin from looking dull. They are not just relaxing but they can also prevent fine lines from appearing.
4. Sensitive body parts
We used to forget about parts of our skin that we don’t see. However, there are very sensitive areas where skin is our only barrier. Skin on your intimate parts is highly sensitive to aggressive products and artifical ingredients.
So, it’s best to stick to natural products that are PH-balanced for your intimate hygiene. Also, toilet paper is known to be very rough with sensitive skin in the intimate region. Many types of toilet paper are filled with perfume and aggressive products, so you should consider switching to smart toilet seats instead. They are a healthy way to maintain personal hygiene and very practical.
5. Turn to healthy fats
Make sure you include healthy fats and oils in your diet, such as avocado, whole eggs, fatty fish, and dark chocolate. These fats and oils help your skin look plump and stay flexible because they feed hypodermis, the fat layer on your skin.
The same thing goes for the moisturizers and body lotions you use – use products that contain coconut, avocado, argan or sesame oils. They are most effective at keeping the skin yourthful and glowing.
6. Removing hair
If you have light-colored hair, then shaving is probably the best option for you to get rid of the excess hair. In case you have dark and dense hair, waxing would be a better choice, either at home or in a salon. For removing hair on delicate areas, you need to turn to a reliable professional and maybe even consult your dermatologists about it before you go to the first treatment.
7. Applying sunscreen
No matter the whether, you need to apply sunscreen if you going to be outside more than 15 minutes. UV radiation is always present.
Your face needs at least 30SPF to be protected from these harmful rays that lead to wrinkles and damage your skin.
During summer, apply sunscreen generously every 2 hours all over your body, especially if you have sensitive skin covered in moles.
Healthy skincare is simplistic in its core. You don’t need to use a lot of products. You just need to stick to essentials and make sure you use them regularly. That is the safe way to healthy skin.
