We had been living in a world where for the longest time the perfect skin was defined by fair skin tone. The definition of perfect and beautiful skin had been fair complexion irrespective of the presence of skin imperfections like scars on the skin or skin texture. But luckily now people have come out of that fair complexion mindset. Now people understand that good skin means healthy skin, skin which is clear and glowing. Beauty will now be defined by skin health.
There are three types of skin. Dry skin, oily skin, and combination skin. For dry skin, you need to hydrate and moisturize it more to keep it glowing and fresh. Where for oily skin you should hydrate but not moisturize a lot but need a serum for oily skin especially vitamin C serum to minimize pores and keep skin glowing. And for combination skin, you should moisturize the area of your face that is dry and avoid using moisturizers on the oily areas. Skin is the largest organ of the body. It protects our body from all the external factors like dust, sun rays, etc.. So skin is the first line of defense you have.
Our skin is made up of three layers upper layer, middle layer, and bottom layer. The upper and outer most layer is called the epidermis. All these layers are different from each other in terms of biology. All the layers are composed of different types of cells. These cells are different from each other in size, shape, and function. So, to take care of your skin you should identify the layer in which the problem lies. However, in general, there are natural skin care tips that can help you. These tips will help your skin become clearer and healthier.
So, let us have a look at these tips:
1. Use ice
There is a myth that washing your face with warm water can help you remove all the bacteria on your face. It is false. Washing your face with hot or warm water is a big NO. It will only cause your skin to look dull and dark. On the contrary, using ice or cold water can help you in so many ways. You can wash your face with cold water to help your pores stay closed. Applying ice on your face has also had a lot of advantages. It can help you get rid of inflammation, minimize the pores, reduce the redness, decrease the puffiness and also help conceal wrinkles. You should use ice on your face before applying makeup to cause your makeup to look fresh. Ice is also used on the face after the cleansing or facial to soothe the skin and reduce redness. The best way to use ice on the skin is to roll it in a piece of clean cloth and then use it on the skin.
2. Facial Acupuncture
Try using facial acupuncture daily in your beauty routine. It is the classical and conventional approach to make your skin look good and healthy. It does not require a lot of your time nor does it require you to expend any energy. You can do it sitting wherever you are. Be it your office, home, gym, or anywhere. The correct way to do facial acupuncture is to use your fingers to apply gentle pressure on the designated pressure points of the face. You should wash your hand properly before you start applying pressure on it. When you start applying pressure it will increase blood circulation in that area of the face. It helps the flow of oxygen and nutrients in that area of the face. It helps in removing toxins from the skin by increasing the lymphatic drainage of the area. This makes your skin look vibrant and helps you get away with the dullness that may occur because of reduced blood flow to the area. The result of the facial acupuncture does not come in a day. You should continue doing it for a good few months to see the results. If you continue doing it, this can do wonders for your skin. So just be patient and continue doing.
There are a lot of ways in which exercise can help you. It does not just help you physically, it also helps your mind and that reflects on your skin and body a lot. Exercise is something we should all do and should make this a priority in our life. When you exercise the blood flow in your body increases. It also increases the nutrient and oxygen supply in the body. The nutrient supply increases collagen production. Collagen is one of the building blocks of the skin. The more the collagen production in the body the better your skin gets. It helps keep the skin smooth and maintain skin texture. During exercise, the whole body starts sweating, this sweating helps the skin produce sebum and other natural oils. These natural oils help the skin to moisturize on its own and that makes the skin look supple and healthy. Exercise also helps the body do away with toxins that help your skin look fresh. So, to keep yourself fit and beautiful you need to make exercise a part of your life.
4. Home Remedies
There are a lot of home remedies that can be used on your face and skin that will help your skin look better. These home remedies are way less expensive than the facials and can be done at home. You don’t have to make an appointment or drive a distance to get to a professional Salon. All you have to do is to go to your kitchen to mix a couple of things and apply them to your face. The use of tea bags is one of the most popular and effective home remedies for good skin. Used tea bags can be frozen in the freezer and then can be put on the eyes to get rid of the dark circles.
