We hope that this post serves you well. As the seasons begin to change and the air becomes cooler your skin will undergo changes as well. However, you can follow a few easy steps to maintain the radiant, glowing aura of summer skin as autumn and old man winter start to creep upon us.
Skin is the largest organ in our body and it helps to do many things. Skin removes impurities via sweat, controls body temperature, and keeps all our other body part tucked in. Could you imagine if we didn’t have this first line of defense between our interior organs and the outside world? While skin fulfills all of its necessary duties, it also helps to keep our appearance nice and beautiful. This is why we need to feed our skin with nourishing treatment products that help to keep it in top condition and keep it working to its full potential.
Our skin has to endure many things during our busy days including time spent in the sun, the effects of everyday stress, pollution, smoke, etc. and its appearance is the early tell-tale sign of our age, so taking care of your skin at an early age definitely has its benefits. Just like other things in life, if you take care of your skin it will last longer and stay healthy.
So how do we take care of our skin?
Bathing: By bathing and washing we are keeping our skin clean and grime free so it keeps the skin’s pores clean. Bathing prevents any infections or acne. Washing your face from the neck up with a very mild pH balance cleanser is a good way to keep your skin clean. You do this by massaging the cleanser in a circular upward motion and then rinsing with lukewarm water. For a whole body cleanse you should use a body shower gel, or for a milder product, shower creams. Remember to rinse yourself off with lukewarm water (NOT hot water) and always pat dry your body.
Moisturizing: Choosing moisturizers that are rich in botanical butters, oils, vitamins, extracts, and anti-oxidants are often recommended for moisturizing your skin. Moisturizing your skin will make it smooth, supple, and plump while keeping it hydrated. Moisturizing is very important no matter what type of skin you have. Moisturizing the face should be done in a circular upward motion. You should always be gentle with your skin.
Drinking Water: Drinking plenty of water is another necessary step for plump, smooth, radiant skin. If you can’t get enough water in a day try eating various fruits and vegetables. Food that has more water content in them for example watermelon, grapes, and tomatoes helps give your skin and body a water boost you need for the day.
