Great Skin At Any Age

Eat a balanced diet – Yes, we all know that a balanced diet is the healthy thing to do, but did you also realize that a balanced diet helps with the moisture balance and the condition of your skin? Start with a minimum of 8 – 12 glasses of water each and every day, and follow up with lots of fruits and vegetables. Continue with a basic low-fat diet (but don’t starve yourself!) and good-quality protein, and you’ll have a recipe for not only good health, but also great skin!

Be gentle – Use a very light touch on your facial skin at all times. If you’re used to rubbing your face or eyes vigorously (if you have allergies, itchy eyes or sensitive skin) you could be aggravating the condition. The skin on your face is very delicate, and the skin under your eyes is the most delicate of all! Never rub under your eyes. If they itch, try a cold compress or washcloth, or a cotton pad moistened with toner or witch

Botanicals Facial Cleanser

A facial cleanser cleans the top layer of skin removing makeup, pore debris, and air pollutants that have attached themselves to the skin. It also removes dead skin cells and oil, leaving the skin with a healthy glow.

A well balanced, gentle cleanser that maintains the skins natural PH, is very important to women. Women insist on skin cleansers that not only clean their skin, but make their skin look healthier and younger. That’s why the botanical facial cleansers have gained so much popularity. They are mild, they do not destroy the skins natural PH, and they replace important nutrients to the skin. After only a few weeks of use woman are seeing their skin look younger.

Just as their name indicates, these facial cleansers are made from natural products, rich in antioxidants including Vitamin C, and complete with anti aging properties. You will find ingredients such as aloe, coconut, jojoba, papaya, chamomile, orange blossom, yarrow, and even horsetail. No that’s not the tail of a horse, but a very powerful antioxidant herb.

Skin Care Regimen

Typically, a skin care routine consists of the following steps: washing, exfoliating, moisturizing and sun protection. Most people opt to stick to their regimen twice a day, especially when they often stay outdoors, or are exposed to pollutants for long periods of time. Doing your routine in the morning and before sleeping at night is usually the case.

Cleansing unclogs your pores and washes away make-up and dirt accumulation, while moisturizing keeps your skin from becoming dry and prevents premature ageing. Various beauty experts advise daily exfoliation to remove the pileup of dead epidermal cells, but doing it daily may lead to irritation and other skin problems in some people. In a week, once or twice exfoliation is usually enough, but applying sunscreen throughout the day is a must. Protection from sun damage caused by ultraviolet light UVA and UVB is what most experts say as the most imperative step in any skin care routine. Since these damaging sun rays are the number one environmental cause of skin cancer and premature ageing, it never hurts to apply sunscreen

Improve Skin Elasticity

Your skin has two distinct layers called the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is on the surface and contains the pigment, epidermal cells, and proteins. The dermis is the layer located underneath the epidermis and contains the dermal cells, blood vessels and nerves, hair follicles, and oil glands plus it is responsible for providing the nutrients for the epidermal layer. It also contains the connective tissue as well as our skin’s collagen.

Although it is located beneath the epidermal layer, it is changes in the dermal layer that cause the outer skin to wrinkle and loose elasticity as we age. As we grow older, the amount of fat found in our lower layer of skin decreases, our glands produce less oil, and collagen and elastin fibers loose their elasticity. The natural process of cell reproduction in the dermal layer also decreases as we grow older, resulting in a slower rejuvenation of our skin cells. So, now that we know just why this happens let’s talk about the part that is more important to those of us suffering from this affliction, the solution.

Although there is no actual magic pill designed to stop this natural aging

Step by step Clear Acne Fast

Step One: Use A Gentle Cleanser To Wash Face
If you go to the store you will see dozens of facial cleansers, pick one. The important thing to remember is to pick a facial cleanser that has the right balance of PH for you and your skin. This takes time and a bit of experimenting because if you choose the wrong one, you are likely to end up with oily or dry skin.

If you want to save some time and money, look up reviews on beauty websites or forums. Usually you’ll be able to find people with the same kind of skin as you. You can message them and see how other products effected them. You can also read their review of the products they have been recently using. This will surely save you a lot of money, time, and breakouts.

Step Two: Exfoliate Your Skin Two Times A Week
When you exfoliate your skin you are removing the dead cells that lay on your skin. You shed skin daily so its important to exfoliate at least two times a week. This will eventually lead you to have smoother, radiating skin that will be easily

Must know about Skin Type

Moisturizing your skin is the third step in a skin care solution. Chilling your moisturizer in warm weather and warming the moisturizer in cool weather helps your skin to absorb the moisture more readily.

Another important part of a skin care solution is protecting your skin in extremely hot or cold climates. Extended sun exposure can lead to serious skin problems. A skin care solution can help ease the symptoms of various skin conditions. Dry skin, a common skin condition, can be caused by many factors. Dry skin can affect the entire body. Dry skin can be mild, moderate, or severe.

Finding the Right Products Will Help You Develop a Skin Care Solution
Lotions, balms, sun protect ants, cleansers, moisturizers, and many other products exist to relieve and cure skin conditions. Readily available products can often relieve most mild cases of skin conditions. Living with dry skin or other skin conditions can be annoying and frustrating. Finding the right skin care solution may take some time and effort; however, the benefits of working on your skin’s health far outweigh the difficulties in finding appropriate skin care products.

Stretch Mark Healing

The normal production of the major protein that makes up the connective tissue in our skin, collagen, is disrupted. Our skin is stretched thin and loses its elasticity. At first, due to the dilation of capillaries, the stretch marks may appear pink or red-colored. While trying to heal the wounds, the production of collagen is increased in the overstretched tissue, resulting in the familiar scars.

A lot is said about the prevention of stretch marks, but what can we do to remove them if they are already formed? Can we get rid of them? Or should we just learn to live with them? Let’s take a look at some of our best options:

–In the early stages, when stretch marks are still pinkish, apply several moisturizing creams and oils to make them less intense while they are maturing. Massage the area daily with body oil. Olive oil is said to be the best. Vaseline also works, any cream rich in vitamin E, different types of butter, cocoa butter, coconut butter and shea butter being the best.

–Micro-dermabrasion can also help. It is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair skin conditions. The micro-dermabrasion technique abrades the

Skin Dryness

Dry skin is very reactive to the environment and hates extremes of cold, heat and wind. It tends to peel and has a tendency to premature ageing with the emergence of fine lines and wrinkles. There is a difference between a dehydrated skin and a dry skin. While the dehydrated skin is simply thirsty, dry skin needs extra care in adapting a beauty regime to nourish the weakened corneal layer. While dealing with dry skin, your objective should always be to restore tone to the lipids in the corneal layer.

Every dermatologist’s advice: you must cleanse according to your skin type. Dry skin must be cleansed without removing the skin’s protective film. So you should opt for a thick milk cleanser and rinse with flower water. Your moisturizing cream should be rich in repairing agents containing ceramides, which reduce the salt content and slow down the evaporation of water in the skin.

Face Masks for dry skin:

1. Mix 2 tablespoons honey with 2 teaspoons milk. Smooth over face and throat. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

2. Mash apricots mix it with warm olive oil to form a paste.

Raw Food Diet

It is believed that a raw food diet has the ability to feed our skin with the vital nutrients to give us the radiant look. As raw food did not go through the cooking process, much of its living enzymes and vitamins are still intact, hence eating raw food is able to provide our skin with moisture. And, we all know that well moisturized skin is more resistant to wrinkles formation.

The condition of our skin is a good indication of our internal health. Eat a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables to get ample vitamins, fiber and minerals into your body. As you diligently add raw food to your diet, you will gradually notice your face showing a healthy glow and radiance.

Much has been said of the efficacy of vitamin C in skin care products to reduce wrinkles. Wouldn’t it be better to take it directly from natural food source? Vitamin C is crucial for fair, radiant and beautiful skin. A lack of vitamin C in our body results in skin problems such as dark spots, freckles and wrinkles. Foods rich in vitamin C includes custard apple, orange, longan, kiwi, guava, strawberry, pomelo and

Green Tea Concentrate

Green Tea extract is an anti oxidant that is one hundred times more potent than vitamin C and over twenty times as potent as vitamin E. Green Tea has also been shown to be an anti-cancer agent, and it may help to lower the low density lipoproteins (or “bad cholesterol”) in our bodies. One of the potential risks associated with Green Tea concentrate, however, is that it includes caffeine. While some may see this as a benefit, there are others out there who have to watch their caffeine intake. To that end, manufacturers have found a way to manufacture Green Tea concentrate that is caffeine free!

You can get Green Tea concentrate as a supplement by itself or you can find it included in herbal supplements that contain many ingredients. This is a matter of personal preference, as it can be good to get many of your necessary nutrients and minerals from one source. The anti oxidants found in Green Tea can help your body fight off the effects of free radicals, which are agents that attack the cell membranes in your body, causing damage.

Now that you know all there is to know about green

About Repelling Sunshine Killer

UV rays are all around us. Even if you do not step out of your house, your skin will still be subjected to damage caused by UV rays from the sun. A dermatological report from USApointed out that the damage UV rays cause to the skin is accumulative. For sceptics, just look at the vast difference between the skin on your inner arm and outer arm. This is the evidence of solar-induced damage.

UV rays can be divided into three types, according to their wavelengths. There are UV-C (200-280nm), UV-B (280-320nm) and UV-A (320-400nm). The shorter the wavelength, the stronger the impact on the skin. Fortunately, the shortest UVC is already absorbed by the ozone layer before it can reach the earth surface. However, both UVB and UVA can reach to the ground level to inflict direct damage on the skin.

UVA can penetrate the dermis layer of the skin to damage the elastic fibre and collagen fibre, making skin lose its elasticity. At the same time, it darkens the epidermis layer, inflicting the greatest damage on skin. Unstoppable by umbrellas and indoor protection, its effects rage unbridled even on cloudy days.

UVB is the

Life style

The first example of things that can easily improve your skin is a change or adjustment of lifestyle. By changing your diet, getting plenty of sleep and drinking adequate water, you can bring yourself closer to getting the flawless skin you’ve always wanted.

Green veggies, oranges, pineapple, plum, apple, grapefruit, berries and carrots are all examples of the fruits and vegetables you can eat to get beautiful soft skin.

Topical

Using an all natural moisturizer can also help, especially one that contains antioxidant ingredients. Remember that antioxidants protect healthy skin cells from the damage caused by unstable oxygen molecules called free radicals.

Antioxidant ingredients like the ones below will neutralize and stabilize these free radicals and in doing so prevent damage and aging of the skin.

1. Cynergy TK

2. Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10

3. Phytessence Wakame

4. Avocado Oil

5. Natural Vitamin E

6. Active Manuka Honey

7. Grapeseed Oil

To get the most out of a skin care product, get one that contains the above ingredients.

Cleansing

Cleansing washes dirt off your skin and also unblocks pores. It keeps skin

Hydrating Mask

However not all hydrating masks are suitable for everyone. If you have oily skin and/or acne, stay away hydrating masks that use mineral oil, which can clog your pores, causing more inflammation and even rashes.

But many good hydrating masks are in fact suitable for all skin types. Look for one that is based on natural plant oils like avocado or macadamia oil, as these oils won’t make your skin oily, but moisturize and nourish it.

Avocado oil, for example, is rich in vitamins A, D and E, lecithin, beta-carotene, potassium and many essential proteins. It is also a great source of unsaturated fatty acids

Avocado oil also has some special skin benefits. It is high in sterolins, which have been shown to reduce age spots. For this reason, avocado oil is very effective if you have dry skin, or if your skin is damaged by the sun, plus it has also been shown to help with the dryness and itching of psoriasis and eczema.

A hydrating mask shouldn’t just deeply moisturize your skin, it must be able to nourish your skin at the same time, and if you have aging skin: it will

Natural Way for Tanning

There are plenty of options in tanning today. More modern ways are undergoing medical treatment to acquire a sun-less tan. However, there are still some modern techniques that use radiation powered machines to tan the skin. And radiation is also bad to the health.

There are more techniques that could give a person a perfect tan. But most of them cost so much because they are highly specialized techniques and reduces (or even eliminates) usage of radiation or UV rays. But to an average person who desires to have a golden skin, it would not be very practical to pay so much to have the desired healthy golden skin.

There are ways to achieve a perfect tan without exposing yourself to the sun and spending so much on skin clinics. There are ready-to-use products that are safe to use and are inexpensive compared to the services offered in skin clinics.

Here are some tips for a safe, sunless and costless tanning right in your homes. Remember that before applying those sunless tanners, the body must first be thoroughly cleaned and exfoliated by using loofah or soft cloth to wash off dust and dead skin cells.

Proactive Skin Care

A proactive skin care approach is no different and investing in the health of your skin is the same as investing in health insurance, care maintenance, house insurance, etc. We brush our teeth several time as day, why? – not because they have holes in them, but we want to prevent the holes and avoid expensive trips to the dentist…

We take our skin very much for granted and spend little time thinking about it. Maybe because of the many Skin Cancer Ad Campaigns, we will apply sunscreen lotion when going outside, but beyond that, we don’t seem to spend much time looking after our skin.

Similarly, a proactive skin care approach takes the quality of skin care products into consideration, however to often we buy skin care by smell and how good the packaging looks. Neither of which guarantees a quality product. On the contrary, often the expensive, good looking products contain artificial perfumes, synthetic essential oils, chemical emollients, preservatives, and many other ingredients that have been shown to be toxic if used over a long period of time.

Removing Unwanted Body Hair

Hair removal in the hands, legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, face, and eyebrows are commonly practiced these days. Sports persons go for hair removal since it will cut down the wind resistance and improve their competitive speeds. There is a report saying that hair removal salons are getting more and more men customers for removing hair.

Different devices are used for hair removal in different parts of the body. Waxing, sugaring, and electrolysis are the most preferred methods for permanent body hair removal. Laser treatments are also used for permanent body hair removal. Waxing is a method of hair removal in which wax is applied over the hairs and then a cotton strip is rubbed on the wax in the direction of the hair growth.

Waxing and sugaring are done for male body hair removal. Waxing removes the hairs from the roots and hence the regrowth of hairs in the removed area takes between 6 to 8 weeks. After hair removal through waxing even if the hair grows it is thinner and is sparser in the area. There are not many hairs in that area. Upon further hair removal the hair may go off permanently. Usage

Microdermabrasion

The cost of microdermabrasion home systems is the cheapest of the three levels. However, home systems vary widely in price and quality. For example, many home systems do not provide the hand-held re-surfacing tool, but only the micro-crystal cream and usually a replenishing lotion. This is more like traditional exfoliating regimens, but with the added bonus of the micro-crystal technology. You can find these systems for $15 to $55. Many prefer the added revitalizing power of a hand-held re-surfacing wand.

Other home systems provide the micro-crystal creams, foam applicators, and a hand-held resurfacing wand. The advantage to this all-inclusive home system is that the resurfacing wand allows you to more deeply cleanse and polish pores while giving your circulation a healthy boost. The massage action of the wand actually speeds the process of cellular generation, leaving your skin feeling brand new, ranging in price from $40 to $150.

Spas and salons utilize state of the art microdermabrasion systems that use a closed-loop vacuum system. Like home systems, professional microdermabrasion treatments also rely on the polishing effects that micro-crystal creams perform on the skin’s surface. Additionally, the re-surfacing device simultaneously vacuums and sweeps the debris clear, increasing

Hypoallergenic Skincare

One of the Biggest Allergens in Skincare Products:

Fragrance alone could be causing an unpleasant reaction because there’s over 4,000 chemicals used in the creating of cosmetic fragrances! Dermatologists have suggested people stay away from fragrances in their skincare because of the possibility of irritation. If you must have fragrance, look for something natural like honey or shea butter.

Excessive Dryness or Redness

If you’re suffering from very dry or red skin and you’re using something with alpha-hyrodoxy, you could be reacting to that. Approximately 10% of people have a reaction to alpha-hydroxy. If you’ve noticed more redness or irritability since you started using a product with this in it, you may be allergic or it may be too harsh for you. Discontinue use and find a wrinkle fighting product that’s kinder and gentler to your face.

Why Paraben-Free Skincare?

While you’re looking for hypoallergenic skincare, include paraben-free skincare too. Parabens are a preservative that is proven to disrupt your hormones which can lead to a higher risk of breast cancer.

Hypoallergenic skincare and paraben-free skincare will keep you healthy and your skin free of irritants. But products that meet these requirements

Eating Tips for Skin

Free radicals are substances that are known to cause premature skin aging. Green leafy vegetables and vegetables like carrots, squash, and spinach, contain a lot of antioxidants, which combat these free radicals and thus reduce premature skin aging. For good measure, you must at consume at least five servings of these fruits and vegetables to make a real difference.

But there’s more good reason to eat fruits and vegetables than just keeping premature aging at bay. Vitamin A, which may be derived from both plant and animal sources, is an integral contributor to the body’s immune system. This is because vitamin A is an integral ingredient in the formation, protection, and repair of epithelial cells that make up the skin, which is the first line of defense of the body against unwanted allergens, biotic parasites, and other harms. With sufficient vitamin A, the skin is not only protected better from bacteria that may cause acne, but also not made susceptible to a condition called xerosis, a characteristic dryness of the skin.

However, because vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that gets stored in the body’s fat cells, taking in supplements may lead to overdosing. Vitamin A,
