Spending a lot of time in the salon, using the best products, getting the right amount of beauty nap and what not, all to get healthy skin and look good. But are you sure you are doing everything to keep your skin healthy and flawless.
You love your skin for sure and the best way to show you care is to take proper care of it. How do you do that? Simple, you do three things; cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing. When you follow this routine diligently, that is when you see the desired changes.
We all know that healthy skin is clean skin. Every time you come back home, wash your face with a good face wash to get rid of all the dirt and oil. As a matter of fact, wash your face with a face wash three times a day, but not more than that. That will wash off all the natural oils from the skin.
Oily skin is not desired, but the skin needs some natural oils. Splash cool water on your face frequently. That will wash away the excess oil on the face, leaving your face clean. Use a mild face wash. Using the harsh ones will make your skin dry, which is not good either.
After cleansing comes moisturizing. After washing the face, the face loses some natural oil. By applying a moisturizer, you will actually balance that loss. Many believe only those with dry skin need moisturizing. That is so wrong. All skin types need this.
Those of you who have oily skin, do not be afraid to use a moisturizer. Make sure you use the ones that are water based. That will keep the skin hydrated without making it oily. You will find moisturizers that are made for oily skin. Use a good brand.
Last but not the least is exfoliating. This is almost similar to cleansing. No matter how much you wash your face, the dead skin cells remain on the surface of the skin. To get rid of them, you need to exfoliate the skin. Wet your skin and then gently massage your face with a facial scrub. Then wash it off. You will get smooth skin. Do this at least twice a week.
These are the basic skin care rules. Follow them and do go to the salon once in a while to pamper your skin. Trust me, it deserves it.
