Facial Tips: Scrubs, Masks, and Exfoliaters
Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It’s also the first thing that most people notice about you. It shields your bones, muscles, and blood vessels. Skin is so vital and important . . . . so why don't people take better care of it?
Not drinking enough water, going out in the sun without sunscreen, and using harsh chemical products adds to the damage. There are a myriad of healthy products on the market that can help keep your skin healthy. Among them are masks, scrubs and exfoliation products.
Before settling on a skincare regimen, you have to know what skin type you have. If you’re lucky, you have normal skin – meaning not too dry or too oily, but just right. More people have combination skin where there are parts of the face and body which are dry and other parts that are oily. Or, you might just be all oily or all dry skinned. No matter the type of skin you have, there are products made specifically for you.
Facial mask products can be found for any skin type or condition. Do you suffer from acne or blackheads? You might consider trying facial masks that you apply, let dry and then peel off. Dead skin covering blackheads will become unclogged which helps clear them up. There are also facial mud masks that you apply and allow to dry. Once dry, you wash your face with warm water to remove the mud mask.
Mud masks have a number of benefits, including oil control. Your skin will glow with health, and not be so shiny with oil. The impurities in your skin’s pores are removed by the mud mask, and appearance of pores will be minimized. Pimple growth is minimized and blackheads dissolve and wash away.
Scrubs and Exfoliaters:
You can consider exfoliating, which is like using very fine sandpaper for your skin. You will be using a mildly abrasive material that buffs away dead skin cells, leaving glowing, healthy skin in its place. Exfoliating has several benefits. First, old dead skin cells making your complexion dull are scrubbed off, leaving new fresh skin cells. Additionally, after exfoliation, it is easier for skin to absorb moisturizers and other skin treatments.
If your complexion is normal to oily, exfoliating is helpful three to four times a week. For drier skin, exfoliation should only be done one to two times per week, maximum. You should establish a skincare routine that includes all of these products, and also incorporates a cleaner and moisturizer. You'll keep your skin healthy for life and you'll feel better about it as well.
Cheers to living young ever after!
