Tips and Advice For Optimal Healthy Skin

Skin care is a discipline and should always be considered when buying products or makeup. It is also affected by hygiene and everyday practices.  When you exercise caution in skin care, you are proactively preventing acne and wrinkles from appearing. 

Before purchasing any skin care product, be sure to read the list of ingredients. The most important ingredient to avoid is high chemical concentrations that may aggravate or harm your skin. Also avoid all products if there are ingredients that you may be allergic to

Test any product before using it. Do a small patch test on a less obvious are of skin such as the earlobes and check your skin’s reaction. If you think will be wearing the product over night (or a full day), wait eight hours before checking and making your final decision.

A lot of people neglect to keep track of the expiration dates on their skin care and make up products. Pay special attention to certain ingredient based products that are less stable such as vitamin C. These products tend to spoil quickly if not stored properly.

A very important part of your skin care routine should be cleanliness. Keep all make up equipment sanitary. This includes keeping your hair clean. Some hair products can aggravate skin. Apply products the recommended distance away from your skin to avoid irritants and clogging of pores.

Additionally, nail care should not be neglected. A lot of people touch their faces more than they realize. This is a common way that germs and bacteria are spread. Sometimes this can’t be helped, but clean nails will lessen proliferation of acne producing bacteria.

Never sleep with make up on. This can clog pores and result in acne. Use a make up remover prior to cleansing to avoid aggressive scrubbing and tugging of your skin. Avoid hot or cold water temperatures, always use lukewarm water.

Drink plenty of water, get a full nights rest and exercise on a regular basis. Sleeping regularly and incorporating work out sessions reduces stress. This keeps you healthier overall and invigorates skin giving you a natural healthy glow.

Skin disorders of any kind should be checked on by a physician or dermatologist. Heed all advice and directions. Regularly check for any new and unusual marks, moles or sores and have them examined immediately.

The correlation between make up and skin care is important.  Products will work more efficiently and makeup will apply more smoothly on healthy skin. The positive practices you incorporate today will reward you with healthy and great looking skin both presently and in your future.
