A Facial Skin Care Treatment That Works For You

Dec 25, 2007
All of us are concerned about our skin perhaps because it is one of the first things people notice. There are skin care treatments everywhere that can help us repair damaged skin and maintain a glowing, youthful appearance. This article will show you steps you can take for a daily facial skin care treatment and advice on what to use on your face.

Step 1: Cleanse

As you go along with your daily activities and even while you're sleeping, your skin tends to accumulate dirt that clog up pores. When you wake up from a long night's sleep, excess sebum or oils accumulate on your skin. When you step out of your house you are exposed to harsh pollutants, UV rays, and/or cold weather that irritate your skin. As a result, your pores become clogged and inflamed, causing blemishes and scars.

In this case, it is important to wash your face in the mornings and evenings. Splash some warm water over your face, apply a mild facial cleanser with gentle circular motions, and wash off. Mild cleansers are the best to use, since they do not tend to aggravate damaged skin and cause the sebaceous glands to produce excess oils.

Step 2: Tone

Toning such as using an exfoliator helps tighten pores and get rid of dirt that's left on your skin. Exfoliation sloughs off dead skin cells that thicken the skin, clog pores, and cause discoloration and dullness. It promotes healthy skin cell turnover and smoothens out the surface of the skin. Therefore, exfoliating at least once a week helps reduce blackheads, whiteheads, inflammation on the skin, and the depth of fine lines and wrinkles.

Step 3: Moisturize

Keep your skin hydrated at all times by using a moisturizer every time you finish washing and toning. Moisturizers help lock in natural moisture to enhance the skin's elasticity and therefore prevent dryness and sagging. They also protect the skin from infection. Find products that also contain sunscreens to protect against UV rays that cause photoaging (premature aging).

A Word Of Advice

Now that you know the basic steps to maintaining healthy skin, know the right things to use on your face. As much as possible, use a facial skin care treatment that contains natural ingredients. The difference between natural and synthetic ingredients is that natural ones are derived from living substances. Our bodies are able to identify these living substances as nutrition, therefore fully benefiting from them.

For instance, oatmeal naturally binds to the skin's surface and creates a protective film to decrease friction and absorb humidity. It has naturally occurring chemical substances that lock in needed moisture (with polysaccharides and natural proteins), sooth irritation, and absorb impurities (with antipruritics and natural antibacterials).

Now imagine the benefits of other natural ingredients such as added vitamins and anti-oxidants. With these basic skin care steps and a natural facial skin care treatment, you are able to treat damaged skin, skin discoloration, photoaging, and acne. There's no such thing as a fountain of youth for your skin-great skin solely depends on maintenance and the right ingredients!
