Keep your skin as moist and fresh as your hair with these healthy skin tips.
Your skin needs moisture, too.
How Do I Exfoliate?
A general recommendation for exfoliating the skin would be twice a week, depending on the sensitivity of your skin and whether or not you have problems with acne. For people with skin that isn't too sensitive and that have mostly noninflamed acne, using a gentle, nonabrasive scrub is helpful (one with smooth round silica scrubbing beads ). If you have sensitive skin and/or have mainly inflamed acne, then scrubs should not be used as often as they can over-irritate the skin and cause inflamed acne to spread. There are other ways to exfoliate for those with sensitive skin or inflamed acne. Chemical exfoliation with AHA or BHA products can really help. Gentle exfoliation with a soft facial brush or a soft washcloth a few times a week can also work for some people.
Curly haired people understand the importance of moisture for their hair because it turns frizz into soft beautiful hair. But your skin needs moisture, too! Now this is the tricky part—Like hair types, not all skin types are created equal. Here are some healthy skin tips to help you care for your body, hair and skin.
Besides needing lots of water, your skin needs everything it takes to maintain a healthy body because your skin is the largest organ in your body. Your lifestyle affects your skin and the sun is the most damaging—even tanning beds will make you look old before your time.
The best way of keeping your skin beautiful is to keep it adequately hydrated. You need to feed your skin nutrients and drink lots of water to help maintain a youthful look.
Your skin needs to be cleansed, exfoliated and hydrated; moisture is essential and varies depending on skin type.
Your skin will change from season to season. If you live in a dry climate, you will need to moisturize often, and in humid climates you’ll find your skin oilier. Add with wind, dust and allergies, and you'll probably also have sensitive skin.
Moisturizers and hydrators will soothe and protect your skin. There are many different types of moisturizing products.
