How To Properly Care For Your Skin

By Charlene Vereen on June 18, 2017

When you’re constantly on the move, every one is prone to sweat. Sweating can be irritating and unpleasant, as well as cause pimples and rashes. Hence, it is important to wash your face daily or sometimes twice a day. Think about all the of the products you may use on a daily basis that may come in contact with your skin such as clothes, moisturizers, cleansers, fragrances, etc. A lot of these products contain chemicals that are harmful to the skin as a whole. Deciding what to use on for your skin is key because it is also your appearance. Relying on commercial products and having bad oil skin is enough to lead to depression and dissatisfaction, so be conscious of these products that are being advertised and always be mindful of the ingredients on the labels. When it comes to putting our best faces forward in choosing what cosmetics to use on our skin, self education is the key. Remember, it’s not only what you eat that matters, but also what you put on your skin. Natural skin care is one of the best choices you can make for your health; with just a slight change in your skin regime and products you’ll adopt a new, natural lifestyle with health and beauty products that can help you look and feel great. Here are a few tips to help keep a vibrant and clean face.

SHEA MOISTURE: AFRICAN BLACK SOAP

Shea Moisture is considered to be one of the most natural products you can use, not only for your face, but for your entire body. It contains Shea Butter which is designed to cleanse, hydrate and replenish your skin. It helps to balance oily skin for clearer complexions. The ingredients consist of African Shea butter, oats, aloe, plantain extract, vitamin E, essential oil blend, vegetable glycerin, palm ash, rosemary extract, and iron oxides, all of which are organic ingredients. Shea Butter can also be used as a moisturizer for dry skin and the best part about it is that you can apply as much as you need.

WASH YOUR FACE DAILY

Although this is probably known as common sense, washing your face is a major deal. Everyday your skin comes in contact with things from the outdoors, as well as things that you may touch. Furthermore, excessive dirt build up on the surface can cause blockages of the follicle, trapping sebum, sweat, and dead skin cells. The lack of sebum on the skin’s surface allows bacteria to penetrate the follicle causing inflammation. The final result is acne. Proper skin cleansing clears pores of debris to prevent dirt buildup, allowing the sebum oil to reach the skin surface unimpeded; decreasing the chances of a breakout. So remember to wash you face as often as you need to, preferably every morning and night.

USE NATURAL MOISTURIZERS

Using a natural moisturizer is also a key factor into having clean healthy skin. Some people usually experience a dry face after washing, sometimes peeling or even rashes. Using a natural protectant over your skin can be used as a barrier to prevent dry, irritating skin. A good moisturizer could be considered all natural oils such as, coconut oil, almond oil, and natural butters and cream such as the Shea butter. A drop of any one of these products will be enough to moisturize your entire face with a light feel, unlike other products that can be too thick or creamy for your face. Disregard applying lotions to your face as they contain other chemicals and perfume smells that can be of irritation to the skin.

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
Water is literally the most natural and effective way to maintaining clear skin. It plays a vital role in digestion, blood circulation, absorption of nutrients, and the elimination of toxins. It’s important in the function of every organ in your body, including the skin. Just like all other organs, the skin is made up of cells that require water to function. Overall, it clears up the skin and provides you with a glowing face. Plus, it evens out your skin tone and gets rid of any discoloration. Every day we lose water through perspiration, urine, breath and bowel movements. Thus, it is important to replenish the body by drinking water and consuming beverages and foods that contain water; preferably greens and fruits as they are too naturally filled with water. Moreover, water is essential to maintain the optimum skin moisture and deliver essential nutrients to the skin cells. It replenishes the skin tissue and increases its elasticity. This helps delay the appearance of signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines. Drinking enough water combats skin disorders like psoriasis, and eczema. It increases the metabolic rate and improves digestive system to flush out toxins from the body. This in turn gives you a healthy and glowing skin.

To start, I've always shared a passion for writing. I find it interesting to be able to tackle and discuss certain issues as an individual. I love the idea of being able to express myself or even giving someone else a change of thought.
