The Most Incredible Skin Care Tips You’ll Ever Read

Taking care of your skin is one of the most important parts of your beauty regime. With clear, moist, unclogged pores, the signs of aging won’t appear any time soon and you’ll be able to age gracefully. Let’s face it, any extra time we can give ourselves is a bonus!
With thousands of different treatments on the table, most people would assume it’s not hard to find the perfect balance. Of course, the fact that there are so many “miracle” cures makes it tricky to choose one. As a result, some women do things that negatively impact their skin so it’s essential to understand the dos and don’ts.

With that in mind, this post is about to reveal the most incredibly helpful hints regarding your skin. Here are the things you should and shouldn’t do to make sure that the body’s biggest organ is the healthiest.

Wash Your Pillow

Your face comes into contact with millions of bacteria and dust particles each day. Being friendly, it absorbs as many of them as possible and they set up their home in your pores. Some of them are gracious and help the skin to tackle things such as dirt and grime and excess oils. Others, however, are downright rude clog up the pores with dead cells.

Exfoliating is a solution, yet it can only get so deep before it starts to hurt your skin. The answer is to prevent the build-up from occurring in the first place, which is where doing laundry comes into play. By washing your pillows and pillowcases, there should be fewer organisms that come into contact with your pores. As a result, there will be less dirt to wipe away.

Regularly wash anything that comes into contact with your face, from pillowcases to clothes and accessories. Another tip: stop touching your face too. Hands are full of germs and they transfer from one surface to another very easily.

Remember That More Is Less (Part 1)

A miracle cure is worth a lot of money. Even if it’s not the best of the best, a product may cost you around $20 to $30. Sure, it lasts a while yet it’s still a hell of a lot of money to splash out on moisturizing lotion. You may think there is no other way but this isn’t always the truth. How much you pay for a cream doesn’t usually reflect its effectiveness.

The best tip any woman can learn is to check the packaging for the ingredients. Regardless of the amount, some items use harmful chemicals and omit the good stuff. By doing some simple research, you can figure out which lotions are worth the investment and which ones are a waste of time and cash. CeraVe is available at most drug stores yet dermatologists love it. Their reasoning is simple: it includes three ceramides that aid hydration and smoothness.

Plus, it’s made by medical experts and not faceless companies that want your money. At less than $15 a tub, it’s a no-brainer.

Remember That Less Is More (Part 2)

The temptation is to throw on as much cream as possible and cover the skin. Your logic: lotions are helpful so it’s better to put on more than less. However, the reasoning is flawed because using too much moisturizer has side-effects. One of the main ones is oily, greasy skin, something you’re trying to avoid.

Always remember that the formula will clog the pores and cause blockages if you use a big blob. And, this applies to how many times you apply lotion throughout the day too. Just because you use a small amount doesn’t mean you’re out of the woods. If you do it five to ten times a day, there is going to be a buildup in the cells. Although it’s tough because you want instant results, stick to the long-term plan and be patient.

Part one and two are linked. By reading the packaging and researching the ingredients, you can steer clear of the chemicals that don’t mix. For example, retinol and glycolic acid shouldn’t be used together as they dry out the skin. The same goes for salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.

Mirages Work

It’s not always about how your skin looks that is the main thing. Often, it’s about how you perceive it that affects how you and other people view it. Think of it like using a mirror to reflect light around a small room. With this neat trick, homeowners can convince guests and themselves that there is extra space and it makes them happy. The same applies to your skin.

Contouring is the process of shaping the face so that it looks full. You take away from the bad parts and focus attention on the good stuff. With quality face contouring videos at your disposal, it’s not difficult to do either. Simply follow the instructions and check out your reflection in the mirror.

Never Forget SPF

As summertime approaches, women stock up on moisturizers that contain sunblock to protect from UV rays (or they should, even African American women). And, it’s the right move as sunlight is powerful and causes everything from burns to cancer. A sunny day is no joke.

Where most women go wrong is ditching it throughout the year. Summer is an obvious time to wear SPF because the rays are strong, yet they are there all the time. Whether it’s winter, spring or autumn, you need to protect your skin from the likes of cancer. Also, keep in mind that skin dries out easier in the cold due to a lack of moisture.

A tip: always buy lotions imbued with SPF. That way, you’ll be protected all the time.
