Normally, people wish to have brighter, more glowing faces when they greet their coworkers in the morning, or their friends for lunch. More often, however, they end up with a tired appearance, or one with plentiful blemishes, which does seem to attract more attention than necessary—all of it unwanted.
Dark circles plague everyone, men and women alike, but it is true that women seem particularly sensitive to skin care issues. Women seem to feel worse if they have puffy skin below their eyes, or fine lines forming around the mouth, eyes, or forehead.
Sometimes acne blemishes are made worse by women not removing their make up properly, which turns into a vicious cycle because those women apply more make up to cover up the blemishes caused by the ineffectual removal, and then they get more blemishes, and so on.
When will people finally get tired of creams, pills, and products, and try basic overall lifestyle changes?
If asked, many people would admit they could stand to be healthier. See if there are any improvements you could make in yourself from this list.
How much sleep do you get each night?
Eight to ten hours is the recommended amount of time daily in order to get your beauty rest.
What do you eat?
A healthy diet reflects in a person’s skin, so treat your body well with fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
What do you drink?
The recommended amount of water that a person should drink daily is eight eight-ounce glasses.
Do you exfoliate?
To exfoliate means to remove dry and dead skin cells. This practice also helps encourage the growth of new skin cells. To exfoliate properly, you must use some kind of brush or something with more of a bristly surface than a smooth sponge.
Don’t scrub too hard, just firmly and enough to be sure you’ve done a thorough job without irritating the area.
Do you have a daily routine for facial cleansing?
This part is extremely important. Every morning and before bed every night, you should strive to unclog your pores as much as possible, as you wash and rinse your face thoroughly.
Make sure to apply a moisturizer when you’re finished rinsing to help your skin stay supple and soft.
If you start practicing healthy skin care today, you’ll soon notice a long-lasting, improved complexion.
