Did that come up too up-front?
Nowadays, everybody has a say about beauty regimens, beauty products, and beauty tips. Even teens will be knowledgeable about beauty routines and skin type. But how come that glowing skin is still so inevitable? This leads me to the following question.
How About Skincare Goals?
In my opinion, understanding your skin type should be your beauty goal in your teenage years. You should have established your skincare routine as a young lady. Then as a woman, you should have an anti-aging skin regimen. I started mine after graduating from college. And it was among the best decisions I made in my life. The anti-aging skincare routine is similar to financial investment. This means that the best time to invest is yesterday. Invest in skin protection as opposed to rectifying signs of neglect.
Beauty Tips For Skin That Glows
Your beauty regimen should include gentle cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing. I shared beauty tips on cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing in this blog. The goal is to cleanse dirt without stripping your natural defenses. Exfoliating, on the other hand, should be done regularly but not too often. This mimics the normal shedding of dead skin cells in younger years. While moisturizing is vital in keeping skin hydrated. This three essential skincare is the secret to avoid dull skin.
Your skin products should include antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and selenium.
I’m sure some of you heard about the miracle promising, aging-reversal products, right? They’re all over the market in different formulations and forms. Most products are promising antioxidants to preserve young-looking skin. And when there are too many choices, decision-making gets all too confusing.
My beauty tip is to remember that selenium, vitamin C, and vitamin E are antioxidants.
Selenium preserves skin elasticity. It slows down the aging process caused by oxidation and prevents cellular damage. Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen and skin healing to reduce cell damage. Vitamin E is produced by the body naturally through sebum or natural oil. But the aging process decreases sebum production. Thus, we need to supplement with vitamin E through oral intake or skin treatment. Vitamin E protects our skin from oxidation caused by sun exposure.
Protect Your Skin From Harmful Chemicals, Sunlight, And Trauma.
According to experts, free radicals cause skin aging. This is a natural process that our body undergoes. Free radicals are also created because of exposure from environmental factors such as UV rays and smoking. Include sunblock to your daytime skincare routine to minimize the effects of sun exposure. Check your products as well for harmful chemicals such as parabens, benzyl alcohol, and formaldehyde.
Limit exposure of your skin from dirt and harsh materials. Use silk pillowcases and change them regularly. This is true with your towel, as well. Use soft materials and a clean towel. Always use the pat and upward motion when applying your skin products. Don’t rub. Use your fingertips and not your palm. This way, you lessen the pressure applied to your skin.
Your overall health is reflected in your skin. So take care of your body. Here are tips to achieve a mind, body, and soul wellness.
