What's the Best Skin Care Treatment You Can Do For Your Body?

Aug 2, 2008
Start from the inside.

Our skin shows what we eating. All the toxins we got from loading up junk foods and oily dishes will be flushed out through pimples and breakouts. So you better watch you eat. Diet should be high in fiber and vitamins go for greens and other fruits and vegetables. Fish is a good source of Omega 3 that is also good for the skin. Avoid process foods for they are packed with preservatives.

Six to eight glasses is required for a glowing healthy skin. Choose soup based dishes from the menu and avoid the oily and fried ones. Drink low-fat milk twice a day and limit your coffee consumption to two cups a day or totally skip it. Colas don't count in your water intake and refrain from drinking sugar-packed smoothies and other drinks.

Check you lifestyle.

Are you a couch-potato? Do you love the outdoors? For our body and even for our skin, active lifestyle should be practiced. How can we say that we live an active lifestyle? And how is it beneficial for our skin?

To live an active lifestyle, you must start exercise for at least 20-30 minutes a day. You can enroll for a fitness program, hit the gym or just walk with your hubby or your dog. Exercise pumps our heart well and promotes good blood circulation. Good blood circulation also paves way for healthier skin. Have you observed your pinkish glow after exercising? Sweating also flushes out toxins inside your body.

We should also be conscious of getting up on our feet and running errands. Walk instead of taking the car for short distances. Go to your co-workers' work station rather than using the phone or worse, emailing them. Use the stairs instead of using the elevator if you just going to the next floor or when going down. View these activities as part of your daily exercise.

Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize.

These three simple steps work wonders for your skin. Everybody should follow these simple yet effective steps in skin care. Wash your face at least twice a day but also avoid washing too often since it will only lead to oiliness. Choose gentle and hypo-allergenic cleansers like Cetaphil and Dove. They wash away oil and dirt but not the natural moisture in your skin like most cleansers in the market. Pat-dry your skin after washing and never rub! This will only irritate your skin.

After washing your skin, apply toner to neutralize the PH balance for skin. Toners also prepare your skin for moisturizer. Toners should be oil-free and water based. Astringent should be used once a week since it is for exfoliation and too strong for everyday use.

Moisturize at least twice day. Some areas in our body should not be neglected like our hands and neck. These areas show early signs of aging and Botox and other laser treatments are not usually done in these areas. Like toners, choose an oil free facial moisturizer after toning. Apply in circular motion to passage your skin and promotes good circulation. Don't forget to apply moisturizer in you neck and in your cleavage area.

You should start putting hand lotions in your kitchen and in your bag. Dishwashing soaps and detergents make our skin very dry. Rinse off and apply hand lotion right away. Putting them on site saves you from forgetting. Don't forget to later lotion in your hands when retouching your make-up during lunch dates. Apply lotion all over your body before bed since your skin rejuvenates while we are asleep.

Sunscreen should also be a part of your regimen now. Apply it everyday even if you are not going outdoors. The sun can still penetrate through your tinted car windows and can reach you while you drinking iced tea in your balcony. Sunscreens should have at least 15 SPF and more if you are surfing or going to the beach.

Choose your products wisely.

When buying skin care products go for products that use natural and organic substances, chemicals in most products only harms your skin. Avoid products that have fragrances since most fragrances are synthetics and just made for marketing proposes. For the usual consumer it is hard to determine which chemicals to avoid. For starters check the labels and hide away from those that have many ingredients listed. As they say less is better. Those added components are just preservatives, colorants and preservatives.

Following the steps above will improve your skin tone. It takes a little perseverance and discipline to follow them but its all worth it.
