As women, we all want beautiful, radiant skin. Getting to that happy place, however, isn’t easy. Here are five answers to your most common questions about skin.
What’s The Best Night-Time Skin Care Regime?
Before getting into bed, it’s a good idea to wash your face. Washing your face before you go to bed is essential if you want to avoid spreading bacteria from pore to pore. The best thing to do is to remove your eye makeup first. Most women use alcohol-based cleansers. But this can harm the skin. A better solution is to use an oil that washes off with water. Oil-based cleansing products are quicker and safer to use and already contain moisturizing ingredients.
Is There Anything I Can Do To Minimize Acne Scars?
Most of us have, at some point in our life, suffered from acne. Unfortunately, acne can linger in the form of scarring, which affects our self-confidence. The good news is that there are a couple of things you can do to minimize its appearance. The first is to improve your diet. The better your diet, the more radiant will be your skin. This will reduce the contrast between darker scarred areas and unscarred areas of skin. The second thing that you can do is focus on moisturizing. Women who suffered from acne in the past tend to have oily skin. So it’s best to stick with an oil-free lotion.
Is There Anything That Prevents Or Reverses Skin Aging And Wrinkling?
By now most of us know the things that we should do in order to keep our skin healthy and young. We should avoid smoking, wear sunscreen and hydrate our skin with moisturizer. We should also make sure that we eat plenty of vegetables, like kale and broccoli, which contain sulfur compounds.
But over time, even if we do everything right, our skin will still be prone to wrinkles and damage. The best way to remedy this as pointed out by Daily Gorgeous, is to use dermal fillers and skin tightening treatments which is totally safe.
How Often Should I Exfoliate?
Exfoliating is a great way to keep pores clear and prevent breakouts. I use to “OD” when it came down to exfoliating. But exfoliation also comes with a cost: it dries out your skin. Your skin relies on an oily substance called sebum to keep it supple. Exfoliating too often removes sebum and leaves skin looking and feeling brittle. Most experts recommend exfoliating only once or twice a week to avoid losing too much skin elasticity.
How Do I Get Rid Of Darkness Under My Eyes?
Some women have a genetic predisposition for darkness under their eyes. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything you can do about it. First off, you can use a color corrector. Color correctors are perfect for lightening your skin tone in the immediate vicinity of your eyes. Concealers are also great. These allow you to make the areas under your eyes the same color as the rest of your face. When you’re doing your makeup, layer both for maximum effect.
To combat dark eyes over the long term, stay hydrated and avoid bright screens at bedtime.
