BTT – Keep Your Skin Looking Its Best

There are a lot of people that say managing your skincare is a tough thing to do, but if you want to know how to manage it properly you have to just educate yourself. The more you know about how to manage your skin properly, the easier time you’ll have at actually doing it.

To keep your lips looking smooth and luscious, make sure to wear a lip gloss or lipstick that has sunscreen in it. Just as the sun can damage the rest of your skin, it can also damage your lips, leaving them dried and cracking. Wearing lip gloss with sunscreen can help protect your lips from the sun’s damaging rays.

Chamomile tea bags make excellent astringents for the skin. The next time you enjoy a hot mug of chamomile tea, set the tea bags aside. Placing them on the skin for a few seconds to a minute can do wonders for skin health and can even clear up an acne breakout.

If you wear makeup, you can improve and protect your skin by cleansing your face in two stages. Use a makeup-removing cleanser first, then follow up with a cleanser containing ingredients that will refresh, calm and moisturize your skin. Just make sure that both cleansers are non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic and gentle since washing twice gives you twice the opportunity to dry out or irritate your skin.

It is very important to use sunblock on your face anytime you plan on being out in the sun. This will help to prevent sunburn and cancer. Some foundation/concealers are even made with SPF in them, and that is an excellent choice. If you do use just sunblock, make sure it is made for faces so it won’t be too oily and cause you to break-out.

Using sunscreen every day will help reduce skin damage caused by the sun. Most people will consider using sunscreen only if they are playing golf or visiting a beach. However, it is important to apply an SPF 15 sunscreen every day to protect your skin while doing anything outdoors and even on cloudy days.

Sun protection isn’t all about sunscreen: choosing the times you spend outside and the clothing you wear can be highly effective ways to avoid sunburns. The sun shines most directly for the few hours before and after noon, making it the riskiest time for exposure. Covering up arms and legs with clothing and wearing sun hats are excellent choices in addition to or instead of sunscreen.

Having a clean pillow that you sleep on every night is a good way to keep your skin clean. The oils from your face get on your pillow, sleeping on that night after night will leave you with a case of acne that is very easy to prevent by just using clean sheets.

Make sure that you use ingredients that get rid of the redness that you suffer from. It is best to choose skincare products with as few ingredients as possible. If your skin is sensitive, more ingredients increase the chance of a bad reaction. The product could end up causing more redness. It may even cause you to break out.

If you have dry skin and need an intense or deep moisturizing treatment, use vitamin E or aloe vera oil. You can find them in liquid form, or you can just break open a capsule and apply directly to your face. This works great on under eye areas where sagging and wrinkles appear first.

To instantly refresh dry or damaged skin, try using a mask. There are many facial masks on the market that can nourish and improve the appearance of your skin. Regular use of facial masks can clean your pores, lead to fewer breakouts, and a single use will leave your skin looking smoother and softer.

Limit your bath time, and avoid very hot showers to best protect your skin. Long baths remove essential oils from your skin. Very hot showers can cause scalding. Warm water is a better option and can be just as enjoyable. Using a small amount of moisturizer after bathing or showering can also help to replace any lost oils.

With all the information you just learned about how to properly manage your skin, you should start feeling like you can make some significant changes soon.
