Daily Care Tips for Healthy, Glowing Skin

December 9, 2012

Every woman wants to look beautiful, healthy and youthful. A daily and consistent skin care and hair care regimen will help every woman do just that. A woman’s self-esteem is often wrapped up in how young or healthy she perceives her skin and hair to look every day. Here are a few simple things you can do to ensure you will look your very best now and for years down the road.

Cleansing your skin is really the foundation of a healthy skin care routine. Whether you have oily, normal or combination skin, it is important to clean your facial skin without stripping it of naturally occurring oils that are important for younger looking skin. Wash your face every night to remove makeup and debris with a cleanser for your skin type. Cleanse by using a dime-size amount of cleanser and rinsing your skin with lukewarm water. Pat dry. Remember: never use hot or cold water to wash your face, as either one can cause broken capillaries and make your skin appear blotchy.

Moisturizing your skin is a wonderful way to remain looking young and have soft skin as well. Even if you have oily facial skin, be sure to use a moisturizer, even if it’s only a little each time. Make sure to apply a moisturizer all over after you’re out of the bath or shower. Bathe only once a day to minimize the possibility of depleting your skin’s moisture. Use lukewarm water and limit your bathing or showering times to under 15 minutes to keep your skin from drying out.

Place cucumber slices over the eyes and lie down for 5 minutes to reduce puffiness.

Apply your makeup with clean sponges each time.

Sunscreen is a must and probably the most important step when it comes to protecting our skin from harmful environmental factors. Make certain to use a sunscreen or moisturizer containing at least 15 SPF and apply it daily to every area that is exposed to the sun.

Hair care is essential for good health as well. If your hair appears healthy, you look younger. Shampoo your scalp daily in order to avoid developing dandruff. When you shampoo your scalp and hair, use your fingertips to scrub your scalp thoroughly to loosen up dirt, oils, and debris. Rinse your hair with cool water and you’ll notice it has more body as opposed to rinsing with hot water. Before going to bed each night, be sure to brush your hair to remove tangles and redistribute natural oils in the hair. If possible, allow your hair to air dry rather than subjecting it to blow-drying which can rob your locks of essential moisture. Use a wide-toothed comb to comb out hair when it is wet to avoid breakage. Regular trims will prevent split ends and give you a new, polished look.

A nutritious diet consisting of adequate vitamins, minerals and drinking plenty of water contributes to healthy skin and hair. Maintain regular sleeping habits.

As you can see, it is really quite simple to look young, healthy and beautiful if you just take care of your hair and the skin.

    Rita and Katherine, For getting rid of hyper pigmentation, natural vinegar is the most effective solution. The whitening and brightening properties of vinegar will make your skin bright and help you in fading pigmentation. Mix equal quantities of vinegar and water, and gently cleanse the pigmented area. Leave it for 10mins. and wash off with cold water. Do it daily once.
