Pamper Your Skin from Head to Toe
Pamper Your Skin – Your skin is your largest organ and unfortunately, it’s also usually one of the most neglected ones.
In your youth, you may have exposed it to hours and hours of harsh sunlight, never imagining that someday, those rays would take a toll on your beauty.
Tanning does make you look great in your younger days, but it then makes you look leathery as you get older.
Not to mention, it can contribute to skin cancer – not just wrinkles.
No matter what age you are, you should starts using a strong sunscreen whenever you’re out in the sun (even driving in the car where your arm might be exposed to it).
You can find makeup that has SPF built right in, but it probably isn’t enough – so add an extra layer of protection under your makeup to maximize your benefits.
Moisturizing is another thing you want to implement into your daily and nightly skincare regimen.
Wrinkles appear because skin looks dried up – like a raisin.
You have to hydrate it, but topical solutions aren’t enough.
You need to drink plenty of water so that your skin is plumped up from the inside, too.
Topically, you’ll be using a variety of moisturizers on your skin.
Some even specify whether they’re for day or night.
So a sample routine would be for you to apply a serum, cream or lotion meant specifically for the fragile eye area first.
Then you would apply your facial moisturizer to include your neck area, and then a body cream for the rest of your body – such as your elbows, legs, and feet.
Facial moisturizers usually have a day or night application.
The daytime ones offer more protection from harmful rays and toxins (like pollutants) that you encounter during the day.
Nighttime moisturizers go in and repair the damage that’s been done by the free radicals floating around in the air that you encountered.
You want to make sure you’ve thoroughly cleansed your face before you apply it so that it can work on a clean slate and penetrate deep into your cells.
If you sleep in your makeup, this won’t be effective.
