There’s so much misinformation out there regarding skin care , not to mention a lot of old wives tales (some of which are actually on the right) and a lot of good intentions bad advice. This is because skin care is difficult, and depends on your skin type. However, there are some tried and true rules – most of which at least two are breaking the rules or you may have heard elsewhere – that really works for all skin types.
As I found out the information below ? From speaking with the skin experts , makeup artists (natural and conventional) and test literally thousands of products over the past 10 years that I have been reviewing natural cosmetics .
1. You do not need to wash your face with hot water to get it clean:
In fact , the hot water can cause redness and irritation in people with sensitive skin and for those with normal skin , it can still result in delicate facial skin , leaving it more susceptible to all kinds of issues, ranging from red, flaky dermis to acne. Wash your face gently with warm water temperatures . It will get the job done without irritating the skin. The same goes for the rest of your body , it can feel good to burn it in the shower, but especially in the cold weather approaching, this is guaranteed to irritate the skin.
2. Oil is good for your skin , not bad:
Many vegetable oils old school ways moisturizing the skin, which we have long been ignored. ( I can not be the only one who had heard stories about his great-grandmother foaming your hands with olive oil, and then wear cotton gloves to bed) . You can wash your face with coconut oil or slather it on after it crumbles ; same with sesame oil and olive oil (go with the scent you prefer). After using the oil a couple of times , you will notice that your skin – whether it is oily or dry – and evens or less oily and more naturally moisturized. The newest formulation of high-tech beauty products contain oils protecting the skin as they work (or use argan oil of sea buckthorn on your face when you want to start with a lighter lipids first).
3. You do not need to scrub to exfoliate:
Wipe most drugstore brand cleansing scrubs are too harsh for most skin types ( more frequent and harder to wash your face can actually aggravate acne , so light.) Instead of using the toxin and chemical scrubs packed in a tube, using natural fruit peels . Unless you have an allergy ( obviously) , rubbing into the skin of fresh mango puree strawberries or fresh pineapple chunks directly on the face, leaving the natural , fruit acids AHA on there for a few minutes, then rinse off is the best Exfoliator you can get. This method may be too much for very sensitive skin, but it works well for all other types of skin.
4. What is most important for healthy skin is not what you put on it , but what you eat:
A healthy diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables , lots of water ( and possibly with skin benefits of tea) , the minimum alcohol and a lot of sweat pouring exercise will make your skin glow more than any expensive cleanser or moisturizer. You’ll feel great too.
5. Chocolate does not cause acne , but the bread and pasta can:
There has never been any conclusive studies linking chocolate -eating to acne , although there have been some that have a high glycemic connect to a breakthrough.
