Unbelievable! There are so many skin care tips on the Internet today. I could not believe how much info I came across when looking for a solution to my skin care problems. Some of the skin care tips were great, but other information was just worthless.
If you're reading this article right now, than you have stumbled across gold! This Top 10 List of Skin Care Tips is meant to be comprehensive and the end of your skin care tip search. It may be a good idea to do a little more research on what I talk about in this article, but I'm going to try to pile in all the information and skin care tips you'll need to live a healthy life with skin care in mind. Here we go....
#1 Use skin care products that are organic and all-natural. This will reduce your chances of experiencing negative side effects from toxins and chemicals present in many skin care products. With organic skin products, all you'll need to worry about is if your allergic to any of the natural ingredients themselves. And even if a product claims to be "all natural" look at it's label, or even check their website, just to make sure their telling the truth.
#2 Adopt a healthy diet and exercise routine. Avoid eating lots of junk food and eat more natural foods that are rich in antioxidants and minerals like fruit, vegetables, seafood, and nuts. Stay away from saturated fats like in butter, but eat a healthy amount of unsaturated fats found in olive oil, eggs, and nuts (your body needs these). Exercise also gets your blood flowing and moves oxygen through your body. You don't even have to run 10 miles everyday to stay healthy. Just go for a walk or jog for half hour to boost your heart rate for a while.
#3 Harness the power of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Vitamins A, B, C, and E are best for your skin. Minerals like calcium, iron, sodium, and potassium are also good for your skin's health. Antioxidants are important because they help destroy free radicals from your body. Free radical production comes from eating artificial or processed foods like potato chips, eating too much sugar and high glycemic foods, cigarette smoking, overexposure to pollutants in the air and water, exposure to home environmental pollutants like in carpets and plastic bottles, and from preservatives.
#4 Be gentle to your skin. When washing your face, be gentle and avoid heavy scrubbing. Scrubbing just opens up pores more than need be, causing your natural oils to be washed away.
#5 Be aware of ingredients to avoid in skin care products. Stay away from parabens, many alcohols, fragrances, dioxane, and mineral oils. All of these ingredients have harmful potential side effects that you can avoid if, again, you choose an all-natural skin care product. Check out my website to learn more....
#6 Protect yourself from the sun's harmful UV radiation. Here's a skin care tip you can never hear enough of. The sun can be the most damaging element to your skin. Ever been in one of those booths at the beach that show the effects of UV radiation on your skin? It's scary what the sun can do to your skin...
#7 Drink plenty of water. You must keep your skin hydrated if you want it to be healthy. Try to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water a day.
#8 Take a hot shower. This will open up your pores so you can effectively wash them. But like I said before, be gentle when washing your face. It's a lot more sensitive then the rest of your skin.
#9 Adopt a simple skin cleansing routine. Wake up. Wash your face. Moisturize. Maybe wash again when you get home from work to get pollutants and debris off your face. Moisturize again. Wash your face before you go to bed. Oh yeah, and moisturize again. Every other week, it's also a good idea to really deep clean your face with a deep facial cleanser. This will really pull out debris and pollutants from deep inside your pores. And when you wash your face, don't use regular soap. Soap is fine for the rest of your body, but use a face cream or lotion to effectively clean your face.
#10 Look for certain ingredients in skin care products. It's necessary to get a product that has an ingredient to stimulate collagen and elastin production. CynergyTK leads the way in this category. You also want to look for something to fight off free radicals, like I mentioned above. The ingredient Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10 is great at doing this, because it penetrates seven layers down into your skin to destroy free radicals. It's special "nano-emulsion" form is what makes this possible. And the last major ingredient to look for is Phytessence Wakame. This ingredient stops the activity of the enzyme hyaluronidase in your body's cells. The enzyme breaks down the hyaluronic acid in our cells, which is needed by the body because it acts as the "glue" to keep collagen and elastin fibers together.
