1. Skin Care must be by skin type
Take this as a thumb rule – before getting into the skin care regime, make sure you pick products that suit your skin type. Since everyone has a distinct skin type, right from dry and oily to sensitive and normal skin, choose products that are specially designed for your skin type. It would be an added benefit if you can consult a dermatologist in case you have sensitive skin.
2. Pay attention to the sensitive areas
As I mentioned above, extra care should be taken in case of sensitive skin. This brings us to the second golden rule for skin care – areas such as eye contour and lips have delicate skin. Even if you have normal skin, you still need to be careful while cleansing these areas.
3. Face wash
Have a face wash that suits your skin and make sure you wash your face twice a day with it. Having a hand towel – just to wipe your face will relieve you any bacterial infections. Once you are done with this, pour some rose water on a cotton pad and dab it all over your face. This step will leave you feeling fresh!
4. Cleansing with love
Makeup removal is the first step in the cleansing routine. No matter how tired you are, always ensure that you remove your makeup before going to bed. And when it comes to removing eye makeup, make sure you clean it gently without applying too much force. Face oil mix and Make-up Remover works great on skin.
5. Be extra careful with the eyes
As mentioned above, you need to be very careful with eyes. Eyes are believed to be ten times more delicate than the skin on the rest of the face. So, right from choosing the eye makeup remover and eye care items for cleansing, you need to do sufficient research on how to be careful around the eyes. Certain cosmetics can irritate your eyes. So, be very careful while selecting your beauty products.
6. Exfoliation is a must
Exfoliation is a must if you’re serious about getting a flawless and a glowing skin. This is again one of the most important best skin care tips you need to remember. It is ideal to repeat this process 1-2 times per week. Just like you scrub your body to prevent outgrowth, make it a point to scrub your face once a week to remove any blackheads that take root on your face. Areas to concentrate are apples of your cheek, nose and chin. I personally believe that natural skin care is better that using the cosmetics available in the store.
While the dermis, the skin layer present between the epidermis and subcutaneous layer, is made up of 70% water; the epidermis (the outermost layer) is made of 15% water. Hence, regular moisturizing is required to balance the water percentage within these skin layers. So soon after coming out shower, always apply moisturizer.
Pro Tip: Damp skin absorbs moisture faster pat dried skin.
8. Focusing on the lips
Apart from drinking water, in order to keep your skin, especially your pouts hydrated, it is necessary that you use a restorative cream for the lips. Try avoiding chapped lips by always keeping your lip balm handy. And also your lips need exfoliation as well. You can try to use my Lip Balm and Lip Sugar Scrub to take care of your lips Naturally
9. UV protection
It’s not like only summers can be harmful for your skin. Your skin can be damaged in other seasons as well by the harmful UV rays. So, never step out without applying sunscreen. While you are at it, visit your dermatologist and ask her to refer you a sunscreen that is not too harsh and strong as you plan on wearing it very often.
10. Face Masks
Going above and beyond never killed anybody. Then why not apply a face mask over your face one every week? Have a day set (probably Sunday) for your face mask routine. Precious Moments offers excellent face masks which rejuvenate your skin and let it breathe. After a week long exposure to pollution and constant layers of makeup, we say having a facial mask included in your skin care routine is a must!
11. Drinking Water
It may sound silly, but drinking loads of water will actually help in having a great skin!! Drinking lots of water perhaps, is the most effortless way to take care of your skin. It helps in flushing out toxins that are harming your skin and improve your digestive system.
