Skin Care-yay!

Finally, all the need to know about keeping your skin fresh and beautiful! The skin on our body guards and protects everything else, and I mean, come on, we need to protect it! Clear, healthy skin not only makes you look great, but it makes you feel great too.

Get to Know Your Skin:

The most common types of skin are dry skin, oily skin, combination skin, normal skin and sensitive skin. You need to know your skin so you can follow specific skin care secrets for its care.

Dry Skin-your skin feels tight and sometimes itchy, also at its worst can be flaky and wrinkled.

Oily Skin-your skin feels oily to touch and you are prone to blackheads, acne and pimples.

Combination Skin-your skin is a blend between oily and dry, usually the forehead, nose and chin are oily while the rest of the face is dry.

Sensitive Skin-your skin is prone to redness and allergies and is sensitive to everything you put on it.

If you are beginning to feel like a freak, thinking that you actually don't have that perfect skin you thought you had, you are very wrong. Normal skin is very hard to find, and no, superstars and models don't have perfect skin. In fact, they probably have worse skin due to all the make-up they clog onto it. Normal skin is fine and doesn't have any open pores.
Tips for dry skin:
Avoid contact with detergents as far as possible.
Do not use soaps to clean your skin.
Use a cleansing cream or milk to clean your face.
To not rub your skin rigorously. Be gentle on your skin especially on areas like your lips and eyes.
Splash water on your face, whenever you get the opportunity.
Use oil based lotions to nourish your skin.
Instead of ordinary make-up removers, pour a little oil in a cotton pad and use that. However, you can also use oil based make-up
removers to remove any make-up.
Do not use any toner since this will stretch the skin further.
A moisturizer is a must. Use a lanolin based moisturizer to help retain your skin's natural moisture content.
Use a night cream before going to sleep.
Stay away from direct exposure to sun and wind as far as practicable. Use a sunscreen before venturing out in the sun. Protect your eyes with sunglasses.

Tips for oily skin:
It is best not to use soap for cleaning your face. Use a gentle facial wash instead.
For cleaning your body, use scrubs.
Facial scrubs can effectively clean off the dirt
Use astringents to refresh your skin after a wash.
Do not use moisturizers that contain lanolin. Preferably, use light watery moisturizers. Massage the moisturizer lightly into your skin, wait for a few minutes to let your skin absorb the moisture and then dab lightly with a tissue paper to take off the excess moisture.
Use face masks to tighten your skin muscles and improve blood circulation.

Tips for combination skin:
Do not use soap, use scrubs and cleansers instead.
Use an oil-based eye makeup remover to remove make up from your eyes and clean the area around your eyes.
Use a cream cleanser once a day, concentrating on dry areas.
Use a stronger astringent to tone the oily areas and a mild one for the dry areas.
Use a lanolin or oil based moisturizer.
Use sunscreen before going out in the sun.
Tips for normal skin:
Use cleansers and scrubs instead of soap.
Remove all makeup before going to bed.
Don't rub your skin after a wash, instead pat it dry.
Use a toner after washing.
Use a moisturizer daily after a wash and before going to bed.

Tips for sensitive skin:
Choose your skin care products carefully. If necessary consult a dermatologist before you select one.
Remove all traces of makeup before you go to bed. Use a soothing makeup remover.
Use a soothing, hypo-allergic lotion to cleanse your skin.
Wash your face with lukewarm water.
Select an unscented moisturizer and gently massage it into your skin.

Always remember to eat healthily, exercise regularly and drink plenty of water, and you are on your way to the perfect skin shine!
