How To Have A Good Skin Care Routine
Skin care is a broad range of practices that support skin’s healthy look, improve its suppleness and alleviate skin ailments. Skin care includes prevention of skin diseases, enhancement of skin’s suppleness and protection it against environmental irritants. Skin care also involves assessment of skin condition and recommendation of therapeutic procedures. The basic components of skin care include cleansing, toning, protecting and moisturizing. Skin care incorporates the knowledge of the skin and body and their needs. They involve the proper use of emollient, vitamins and minerals, avoidance of skin diseases and protection it from environmental irritants.
Skin care products include facial serums, eye serums, body lotions, hand cream and hand cleanser. Facial serums are anti-aging and anti-wrinkle serums. Eye and hand creams are anti-aging eye and hand creams and body lotions are anti-wrinkle body lotion and cleanser. Exfoliating is a part of facial skin care and is done by removing dead skin cells and softening the stratum corneum.
Lotions and serums are applied to the skin or taken orally. Creams are applied to the skin and wiped off after two minutes. Eye and hand creams, body lotion, face pack, moisturizers, face masks and facial serums should be selected according to the skin-care routine. Eye serums are made of different ingredients. Some contain eyeliner; some contain eye shadow; some contain a blush brush and some contain a finishing powder.
Before using any skin care products, one must consult a dermatologist. A board-certified dermatologist is a professional who has undergone specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders. Consulting a dermatologist is essential because some ingredients may not be suitable for all types of skin and it is better to take precautionary measures before using such products. The dermatologists can help determine the proper ingredients to be used in a particular skin care product and thus will save a patient much time and effort.
Some ingredients kill bacteria but the dermatologist should clarify this information. It should also be known that certain ingredients are non-allergenic and should not be used on persons with allergies. The skin care products which use such ingredients should be properly labeled and they should carry the contact information of the dermatologist and the manufacturer.
One can also get tips on how to take care of one’s skin by reading the “insider secrets of celebrities” or by watching beauty shows on television. One important factor that should be considered by people is diet and the food one eats will affect the texture and quality of one’s skin. Nutritionists and dieticians believe that a balanced diet containing the proper amount of vitamins, minerals and proteins along with the right amounts of water is important for skin care. People who take multivitamins can also contribute in the improvement of one’s skin by ensuring that there are no vitamin deficiencies. Another way of improving skin care through nutrition is eating the right kinds of food at the right times.
There are many other tips for acne-prone skin care and many of them can be found on the Internet. These include using mild soaps and cleansers instead of highly abrasive ones; washing with a soft-bristled toothbrush instead of a hard one; avoiding acne products that contain harsh chemicals and alcohol; and using natural topical treatments instead of antibiotics and other strong medicines. The acne treatments recommended by dermatologists are usually very effective in eliminating acne and controlling the breakouts. However, it is always best to consult a dermatologist about any type of skin care treatment.
People who want to have a good skin care routine can follow these simple steps in order to achieve healthy looking skin. Using sun protection when outdoors is also a must and choosing a good cleansing product is essential. It is always advisable to use all the methods in moderation and in conjunction with each other.
