Your outward appearance, mainly your skin is how the world sees you. Your self image can be boosted or destroyed based on how the world sees you. Read these tips, which are geared to help you make your skin look as good as it can be, whatever your age. Keep your youthful look for years.
A good thing to do to keep the skin looking great is to moisturize. Your skin will look healthier when using a moisturizer and the skin is less likely to dry out. Winter time is the prime time to be using moisturizer regularly. Your skin is more susceptible to drying in the winter. Looking young starts with the right moisturizer.
Rub in some apple cider vinegar on blemishes. This treatment helps relieve dryness and restores moisture. Make sure to use this treatment during the day, as the pungent aroma of the vinegar is not something you want on your sheets.
Don’t sleep with make-up on your face. When you sleep, the skin rejuvenates itself from the stresses of the day. If you go to bed with makeup still on your skin then it does not have a chance to breathe like it should. Take the time to remove all of it before you head to bed.
Before spending time in the summer sun, always wear sunblock. Instead of using your fingers to apply the product to your face, opt to use a sponge applicator. Using a sponge allows it to get into your skin deeper, making it work a lot better. You can also avoid that greasy or sticky sensation if you’ve applied it too liberally to your face.
Don’t use your socks or gloves if they’re damp or wet. Wet socks or gloves will cause your eczema to flare by causing skin irritation, itching or scratching.
If your lips are always dry and cracked, then it’s time to address the problem with a homemade lip balm. Combine sour cream, honey and cucumber, apply to your lips and wait 15 minutes. When time is up, rinse the mixture with water and add a bit of almond oil to your lips, which protects the skin and seals in moisture.
As long as you take these tips to heart, your skin will improve. This will better present the “inner you” through the “outer you.”
