Img skin rejuvenation 300x143 Tips To Rejuvenate The SkinEvery individual likes to have a flawless skin. As the skin ages, it starts to lose it sheen and luster only to look lifeless. However, having a good skin is becoming more important and it is not the easiest thing to achieve. There are many ways of rejuvenating the skin by removing the dead cells that dulls its appearance. Beauty clinics offer many a treatment for the skin to regain its brightness but the same effect can be brought about by anybody at home by using appropriate beauty care products. This article aims to provide some tips to rejuvenate the skin at home.

Determining Your Skin Type

The basic skin rejuvenating procedures include cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing it regularly. However, for these procedures to be effective, it is essential that the right types of products that suit one’s skin are chosen. The skin can be either oily, dry or a combination of both these types. Consulting a dermatologist would help a person to determine the type of skin that he/she possesses. Different products exist for different skin types. It is essential to make the skin maintenance routine a daily affair (usually twice a day, once in the morning and just before going to bed) to have a glowing and lustrous skin.

The Skin Maintenance Routine – Cleansing, Exfoliation, Moisturization and Application of Sunscreen

Once suitable products are chosen, the next step is to cleanse the face. This is usually done using lukewarm water. Cleansing helps to unclog pores and loosen the dirt. Then use a soap-free cleanser on the face, allow it to remain for a minute before rinsing it off with cold water. A cleanser that contains soap can cause the skin to dry out.

Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead skin cells from the surface and substituting them with new cells. Exfoliation is usually carried out after cleansing the face and repeated once or twice in a week (for dry skin and up to four times for oily skin). After washing the face with cool water, apply the exfoliating scrub gently in upward circular and outward motions to remove the dead cells. Do not use an exfoliating scrub near the eye area where the skin is tender. Repeat for about two minutes and then wash off with cold water.

Moisturizing is a routine that is usually carried out after exfoliation or after cleansing (and optional toning) of the skin when the skin is still wet. Moisturizers are designed to preserve the moisture in the cleansed/exfoliated skin. There are many types of moisturizers available in the market. However, the best ones would be those that contain antioxidants or aloe vera which is a natural moisturizer. Do not choose moisturizers that are not sufficiently tested and those that have strong fragrances as they can cause harm to the skin. This is true for those whose skin is more prone to allergies. It is important to be aware that an excess amount of moisturizer on the skin can clog the pores.

Application of sunscreen is the last step in the daily skin care and maintenance routine. Constant exposure to the ultra-violet rays of the sun causes development of sunspots or age spots. This can be prevented by the use of sunscreens. They are available in the market in the form of gels, lotions or creams. Choose a sunscreen with a suitable sun protection factor (SPF) and wear it a few minutes before you get out in the sun.

Some Handy Tips for Skin Care

A nutritious diet that consists of fruits and vegetables helps to maintain the skin’s health. The skin can be kept soft and supple if the body is sufficiently hydrated by drinking adequate amounts of water. Both green tea and black tea have antioxidants present in them that keep the skin healthy.
