Skin Care at Home
The skin is prone to a number of ailments and diseases. Perhaps the most common is the dreaded acne.
Usually mistaken as a pimple, acne is actually a skin condition that causes pimples. Regardless of which is which, what is important is how to get rid of them.
Some doctors will advise certain chemical-based, over-the-counter medications as a way to treat such skin conditions. While these topical medicines do work, there are some who prefer to care for their skin naturally.
Keeping the skin, especially the face, clean is the best skincare tip out there. Avoid strong soaps like antibacterial ones on your face. Use mild soap or organic facial wash instead. Always clean your face after a whole day of wearing makeup. Never go to bed with makeup still on.
Regular washing or bathing helps keep the skin moisturized. Do away with chemical-based moisturizers. You can make your own just by mixing half an avocado, a couple of tablespoons of honey, a cup of buttermilk, and some olive oil. All these ingredients contain nutrients beneficial to the skin and when combined make for an effective yet natural skin moisturizer.
Eating the right food is important for the body’s overall health. When it comes to skin care, a proper diet with the right amounts of Vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, and fiber contributes to excellent skin.
The best skin care tip is prevention
To avoid pimple breakouts, it is wise to invest in or practice some natural skincare methods. A change in lifestyle is a good place to start especially if you regularly drink alcohol and smoke. Quit these two deadly habits and you’re well on the way to better skin and longer life, for that matter. Additionally, you might want to avoid stressful moments. Mental stress produces adrenaline and cortisol which causes or worsens skin breakouts.
