Whether you believe it or not, you are beautiful!! We all get dismayed to wake up to a giant pimple in the middle of our forehead, but there are so many ways to prevent this from happening. There are also preventative measures that can be taken to avoid these mishaps. This article will address these tips.
Dry skin is a problem for many people, especially during the winter months. To keep skin moisturized, avoid hot water, as this will dry out your skin even further. When taking showers, or washing your face and hands, always use lukewarm water. And remember to apply moisturizer liberally, while the skin is still slightly damp.
Keep your skin well moisturized by applying lotion liberally every time you get out of the shower or bath. The moisture that seeps into your skin during baths and showers is lost quickly if not sealed in with a good moisturizer. A good rule of thumb is to put on lotion within 5 minutes of drying off.
To prevent premature sun damage to your skin, it’s very important to wear sunscreen. Choose one that blocks UVB and UVA rays. Pick an SPF factor high enough to continue to protect you after it begins to wear off. For example, an SPF of 10 will drop to a very low protection of SPF 5 after you sweat for a bit or wipe your face.
Moisturizers work much better on the skin when they are warm. When warmed, it is more easily absorbed by the skin. To warm it, microwave it in a microwave-safe container for about five seconds or until it feels warm. Don’t overheat it. Another good way to warm up the moisturizer is to set the container in some warm water.
We can’t prevent every blemish but we can all fight against them. Taking care of your skin is easy and takes up virtually no time. Having healthy skin is a key to feeling beautiful inside and out and it costs almost no money to achieve this. Relax and enjoy the skin you’re in!
