Taking Care Of Your Skin Schedule
Often enough, people would recommend skin care regimens such as washing your face twice a day, a facial once a month, and exfoliation on a weekly basis. On the other hand, how do you really take care of your skin? Read on to know more about taking care of your skin : a 24 hour schedule.
Upon waking up:
this is the most recommended time to wash your face. During the night, skin renews and regenerates. This leaves your face with dead skin cells in the outermost layer of your skin. If not washed, dead skin cells may accumulate along with dirt, oil, sebum, sweat and may cause breakouts – which, by all means, nobody would ever want to have. Morning is also the best time to exfoliate. Here are some tips on how to properly wash your face:
Wash your face with warm water. Refrain from using hot or cold water as it may be harmful to your skin. Warm water, meanwhile, causes pores to open up and thus gives you a more effective wash.
Avoid using hand or body soap. Remember that the skin on your face is more sensitive. Thus choose a cleanser that works best with your skin type. If you have sensitive skin, you might want to use a hypoallergenic product.
Massage your face while washing. Use a dime size amount of facial scrub and massage it to your skin in a circular motion for a minute. This lets the product go deep into your pores and cleanses it efficiently.
Rinse and pat dry. Make sure your skin is rinsed properly – make sure no trace of product is left on your face – and use a soft towel to pat it dry. Refrain from rubbing the towel as it may encourage wrinkles.
Before going to work:
remember that – as you start your day – you need to gear up as you will be facing a lot of situations that may be harmful to your skin. Here are some of the things you need to keep into consideration as you go about your day.
Harmful UV rays.
Although sunlight is okay – when skin is exposed to sunlight, UVB rays interact with a protein known as 7DHC converting it to vitamin D3 which is an active form of vitamin D – but long term exposure can actually be harmful. According to the World Health Organization, 15 minutes of sunlight two to three times a week is enough. Before you go about your day, make sure you bring protective gear with you – like an umbrella or a hat. Moreover, sunblock is likewise helpful.
Harsh weather conditions.
Whether you are in a tropical or cold country, it is best to skin your skin protected against harsh weather conditions. Extreme cold can impede circulation and may be detrimental to your skin. Hot weather, meanwhile, can be equally harmful.
While you are at work:
keep yourself hydrated. Remember that stress, along with other factors, can be draining. Hydration, with proper nutrition, is best to keep your body at its optimum best. Moreover, skin contains 64 percent water – dehydration not only hasten skin aging but may cause chapped skin that can be inviting to bacterial invasion. Moreover, during the day, avoid using alcohol-based products onto your skin as it may cause skin dehydration.
After work and before going to bed:
this is the best time to indulge in facials to improve skin hydration. Your skin had enough for the day and you need to pamper your skin to keep its youthful glow. Moreover, having plenty of sleep allows your skin more time to regenerate and be replenished.
Your daily regimen can be improved by using a dependable skin care product. There are many pharmaceutical and over the counter skin care products but going natural is still the best.
