Fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, mottled skin, dark circles, etc. - the list can go on when it comes to skin-related troubles that many women face.
Here are some tips to keep your skin looking youthful and fresh.
Protect Your Skin
Over-exposure to the sun is one of the main reasons of skin damage. Prevent further pigmentation and wrinkling by always using a sunscreen whenever you step out in the sun. Be sure to use sunscreen on cloudy days as well as during the winter months.
To repair and heal photo-damaged skin, use face creams such as the KNU Anti Aging Michael Todd Face Lift cream in addition to sunscreens. Packed with organic nutrients such as EGF, DMAE and snail serum, the cream helps restore and rejuvenate your skin.
Cleanse Your Face at Night
Dirt, bacteria and make-up can clog your pores and trigger a break out if not washed away at night. Going to bed without cleansing your face also means transferring all that is on your face onto the pillow. Your skin will then have to put up with these irritants night after night.
Just use a little cleanser and warm water to wash your face before going to bed. In the morning, only splash on some lukewarm water. Cleansing your skin in the morning again may strip your skin off its essential oils. Your skin should feel supple after cleansing, not very tight.
Change Your Pillowcase Regularly
Your pillowcase can harbor germs even if you go to bed after cleansing your face every night. Changing your pillowcase about every 5 days or so will help your skin stay healthy.
Exfoliate Your Skin
Dead skin cells that make your skin dry and rough need to be sloughed off so that newer skin cells can be exposed. Exfoliating regularly allows creams and serums to better penetrate your skin.
Again, it`s easy to over-exfoliate so use a gentle product on the face only twice a week. Always, exfoliate in the mornings as skin repairs itself at night.
Moisturize Skin as Needed
If your skin feels dry, itchy and extra taut, you need to invest in a good quality moisturizer. Use only as needed or else you`ll end up clogging your pores with too much moisturizer.
The skin around your eyes is thinner and very delicate. If you have wrinkles or fine lines around your eyes, you may want to invest in a good eye serum such as the KNU Anti Aging Michael Todd Serum Eye Treatment. This product also comes with a Cool Tip applicator to help reduce puffiness around the eyes.
The benefits of eating healthy food will show on your skin for years to come. Eat a diet that is rich in vitamin C, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Eat fruits and vegetables rich in beta carotene- a pro-vitamin that is converted into vitamin A by your body.
Avoid pasta, cakes, and white bread as these have a high glycemic index. Opt for foods made from whole wheat and oats.
Reduce your salt intake as too much of it can make your face puffy and also trigger acne. Keep a check on your sugar intake as well; too much sugar can damage collagen and elastin fibers- dermal components that are responsible for keeping your skin firm and elastic.
Also cut down on your alcohol intake as it dehydrates your skin and makes it look dull and dry. Make sure youre drinking at least six glasses of water every day. It will keep your skin hydrated and looking fresh.
Follow these basics religiously to have the skin youve always dreamed of!
