Smart Tips To Help You Get Better Skin

Perfect skin is often a carrot dangling in front of you, so close but still so far. There is always a magazine or blog that states it has the secrets of perfect skin, but many people still struggle with a skin care routine that works for them. There are a few other steps that you can try which will make your skin better, if not perfect. These tips will help you take your skincare routine to the next level which your skin will thank you for.

Use Sunscreen Every Day

The single most important element to healthy skin is sun protection. Many of the things that you do not like about your skin could be an effect of sun damage. The sun will degrade the collagen and elastin in the skin and it will affect the body’s ability to create new healthy skin cells.

This is why you need to ensure that you never leave the house without applying sunscreen. You should look at sunscreen of at least 30 SPF, even in the winter and on cloudy days. Broad spectrum SPF which is meant to protect against all UV rays is recommended and will generally have a higher SPF rating.

Make Sure You Use The Right Products For Your Skin

The best way to care for your skin is to know your skin. You need to take the time to learn about the type of skin that you have. This will help you navigate the aisles of skin care products and choose the one that is right for your skin.

Do you have oily skin, dry skin or combination skin? If you do not know the answer to this, you should consider seeing an aesthetician or dermatologist who will be able to assess your skin. You should also keep in mind that different areas of your face will have different concerns and characteristics. A common skin care mistake is to use the same product for the whole face.

Hydration is also important regardless of what your skin is like. If you have very oily skin, you should look at a skincare product which is oil-free and has hyaluronic acid in it.


All skincare routines should have exfoliation in them. You should look at exfoliating twice per week while in your 20s, 3 times a week in your 30s and up to 4 times a week when you are 40 and older. Exfoliating will remove the dry and dull skin from the face and allow your skincare products to penetrate and work more effectively.

You should look at exfoliating formulas which use fruit enzymes as they will gently dissolve the dead skin. You need to stay away from products that use sharp seeds and nuts because they could damage your skin. You should always exfoliate with steam because it warms the skin and will add hydration.

Do Not Neglect The Neck

Your neck could show your age more than your face and this is why you need to take care of the skin there. The products that you use on your face should be taken to the neck as well. You should look at massaging them in using an upward motion because this creates a lifting effect. It is also important that you wear sunscreen on your neck every day and that you apply a moisturizer in the morning and night.

Purify Your Water

Drinking more water is a good way to ensure that your skin is properly hydrated and this is the simplest thing to do. However, you should look at supplementing this with looking into what is in the local water supply. The local Department of Water should be able to provide you with data on the impurities and chemicals in your water.

Once you have this information, you will need to determine if you should get a home filtration system or purifier. There are certain metals and impurities which can be filtered out, but there are some chemicals and other materials that cannot.

Watch Your Intake Of Alcohol, Dairy, And Coffee

What you put into your body is just as important as what you are putting on your skin. You need to be careful with dairy. There are studies which have shown that milk may contain certain steroid hormones and this can contribute to clogged pores, acne and inflammation.

Coffee is also a problem because it dehydrates your skin. You should look at limiting your coffee intake to 2 cups per day. You also need to try drinking an 8-ounce glass of lemon water before your coffee to neutralize the acids that it has.

Your alcohol intake should also be limited to no more than 2 drinks per day. If you want to enjoy an alcoholic beverage, you should look at red wine because it contains anti-aging compounds. It is important to note that a single serving of wine is 5 ounces which is not the average you get when dining out.

Supplement Your Skincare

There are a number of supplements that you can take which will help your skin. Vitamin A will help your skin operate properly and is a supplement that you should consider. This vitamin will repair and reinforce the tissues and mucous membrane which protects the body from viruses and bacteria. It will also stop your skin from becoming dry, wrinkled and flaky while preventing acne.

Calcium is also an important player in your skin’s health. Low calcium levels in the skin can increase the signs of premature aging. It has also been linked to a higher risk of skin cancer.

Vitamin C is very important for the body and the skin. This vitamin is important in the formation of collagen, will help the body heal wounds and will fight free radicals.

A lot of people with darker spots on their skin will want to get these sorted and laser therapies such as this can help - http://www.dore.sg/underarm-whitening/. They will help you rid yourself of such darker areas and feel more confident about skin.

Flaxseed oil and fish oil should also be considered as they work to hydrate the skin and lock the moisture in the cells. Hyaluronic acid supplements should also be looked at as they will attract more water into the skin cells.

Do A Double Cleanse

It is essential that you always remove all dirt, debris, makeup and other junk that gathers on your skin. A double cleanse will help with this. You will need to first remove impurities on the surface of the skin with a makeup wipe. You should then apply a cleanser which is suited to your skin for a full cleanse. You can use the cleanser twice if you do not want to use a wipe.
