Proper skincare is perhaps one of the many underrated daily healthcare activities of your times. I use skincare and healthcare in the same sentence because whenever a breach in the skincare is exploited by allergies, bacteria and fungi, you will be running to your health insurance plan to cover the huge costs.
Have a look at some good tips that you can use to enhance your existing routine.
Key Care Areas To Concentrate On Before Going To Bed
- Be sure to wash your face thoroughly before going to bed. It will help to remove dirt, dead skin cells and oil build-up from the pores, thereby ensuring that the skin breathes freely all through the night.
- Exfoliate your face regularly in the winters and twice a week in the summers. This will help you to deal with the affected sebaceous glands and dead cells which, if not dealt with, will cause the painful red bumps and black or white heads which later get infected into inflammatory acne.
- If you have an oily and acne prone skin, then using a toner after washing your face will help you greatly in killing the leftover bacteria. Toning is also good for excessively sweaty faces and should be a must if you have to wear make-up all day.
- While applying your moisturizer, take care that you use only your fingertips in the process of applying it. Essential oils and moisturizer compounds may sting around the eyes and the eyelids, so be careful about that.
Morning Skincare Schedule
- Use warm water to rinse your face. This pretty much takes care of washing if you have followed the night schedule. However, if you are returning from the gym or if your face has a sweaty and oily tendency then reinforce the warm water with a gentle face wash. To take care of the overnight bacterial build-up, repeat the toning regime. Apply the toner upwards and keep repeating till the blackness from the face on the cotton does not completely finish.
- Moisturizing can be kept on the lower side in the morning. If you have to go out, then use a good sunscreen lotion with an SPF that best suits your skin needs. Apply the sunscreen a good half an hour before you leave home so that it binds well with the skin and gives optimum protection from the harmful radiations of the sun.
For those with dry skins, use rose water to blend your scrub in and then apply. For oily and acne prone skin, use lavender water instead on your face. You can also make a thick paste out of your scrub to double it up as a facemask. At the most, you will be needing a 15-minute resting period and then wash it off with warm water.
Basic care of the face and neck area on a daily basis can pay off quite nicely in the long run. So do not shun away the little superfluous costs that come with using good, suitable skincare products. It is better to invest now, rather than cut into your health insurance later on.
