Did you know that the average adult’s skin, if stretched out, spans a whopping 21 square feet! It is the body’s largest organ, and as such, it should be a high priority for us to take care of it.
Skin is often one of the first things that other people notice about us. So if you want to put your best face forward, you need to learn how to get better skin.
Let’s take a look at the top beauty secrets for keeping your skin gorgeous.
Properly hydrated skin gives it that youthful, wrinkle-free glow that we all crave so much. Moisturizing products are great to help with this, but often they are best at locking in moisture that you need to get from somewhere.
Drink plenty of water to give your skin the moisture it needs.
Water also helps clear toxins from your skin and pores. This cuts down on skin problems like acne and even psoriasis or eczema.
Drinking water helps clean the skin from the inside, but you need to remove contaminants from the outside as well.
Aim for washing your face twice a day and make sure to choose a cleanser suitable for your skin type. For example, a cream cleanser is great for dry or sensitive skin, while a foaming cleanser is a better option for oily skin.
Take a shower once a day in lukewarm water and limit it to 15 minutes or less. Surprisingly, too much water exposure can dry out your skin.
After showering is the ideal time to moisturize your skin. Again, choose a moisturizer that is ideal for your skin type.
Keep in mind that skincare products vary widely and no one product is one-size-fits-all. For example, skin care for black man with oily skin is quite different than skin care for a lily-white redhead with dry skin.
Sometimes those with oily skin shy away from using moisturizer. However, moisturizing is important even for them.
Not using moisturizer can actually make the problem worse. The skin can go into “drought” mode and start overproducing oil even more.
