Don’t wait till your skin starts showing signs of aging to take care of it–begin a preventative skin regimen now and you will reap the benefits for years to come! Your skin is important for more than aesthetic reasons. It is the largest organ of you body, and your first layer of protection from the sun and harmful toxins. The better you take care of your skin early, the healthier and more capable it will be in the future. With that said, let’s look at some tips to help you take care of the skin you’re in.
- An important first step in your skin care regimen should be a cleanser. You can use soap, or there are many different brands that sell cleansers specifically for the face. It’s a good idea to use an exfoliator too, either with your cleanser or right after. This will help slough off the dead layer of skin cells, prepping your face for your other facial products and making your skin appear brighter.
- After cleansing and exfoliating, find a great mask that works for you! There are tons of different types of facial masks that produce different results. Charcoal masks are good for detoxifying the pores because activated charcoal attracts metals and toxins. A clay mask (a good ingredient to look for in one of these masks is kaolin, a brightening mineral) will help tighten and brighten the facial skin. Whatever your face’s specific needs, there is definitely a mask out there for you.
- Don’t forget to moisturize! You can use a regular body lotion, but again many companies make face-specific moisturizers. Some of them have sun protection mixed into their formulas, which is definitely a positive attribute to look for. Some of them have a higher SPF than others; no matter what your skin looks like, sun protection is key to the youthful look of your face and preventing problems like sunspots and even melanoma.
- Last but not least, a good toner will help your skin appear more even, and less puffy and red. This step is purely aesthetic, but it is a simple thing to apply a toner and it is the perfect way to end your quick and easy preventative skin care regimen.
