Clear and smooth skin is something you've likely been chasing since your teenage years.
Do you really have to keep spending money on new products that are supposed to fix all your problem areas in the hopes that they might work to give you the complexion of your dreams?
Increasing evidence says no. In fact, the secret to clear skin is easier (and less expensive!) than you may think.
Seemingly unlimited varieties mean the quest to find the perfect face wash is never-ending. Instead of spending hours standing in front of the options at your local drugstore, keep it simple. A gentle cleanser free from harsh chemicals and strong scents is the best option to keep your skin fresh and clean while helping prevent breakouts and other skin problems.
Is fall your favourite season? Many people love curling up in a cozy chair as the seasons change from fall to winter, but your skin would disagree. As the temperatures drop, so do the moisture levels in your skin. Your body’s natural response is to produce an excess of oil to make up for that dryness.
The type of moisturizer you choose should depend on the skin issue you’re dealing with. If your skin is oily, choosing a lightweight moisturizer is essential. Look for ones that are “non-comedogenic,” meaning it won’t clog your pores. If you have dry skin, aim for a thicker and greasier moisturizer for better results.
How many times a day do you touch your face? If you’re like most people, the answer is more often than you think. Touching our faces is an unconscious habit that can be difficult to break, but all the things you touch during the day can be transferred to the delicate and sensitive skin on your face when you touch it. To help break this habit, consider trying a new perfume or scented hand lotion; the change in scent can help remind you to keep your hands away.
We’ve been washing and sanitizing our hands regularly, but breaking the face-touching habit isn’t enough on its own. We should be washing the things that go near our face just as much. All of us spend time talking on our cellphones, but how often do you clean it before putting it up to your ear and resting it against your skin? Your phone has been in pockets, on dirty tables and plenty of other un-sanitized places.
The solution? Before taking a call, wash your hands and wash your phone using a screen-friendly wipe.
The secret to better skin is something that your body produces naturally: collagen. It’s a protein that provides your skin with firmness, elasticity and structure. As we age, collagen production starts to decrease. This can happen as early as 30 in some people.
Luckily, the beauty industry has come up with a replacement in the forms of creams and ointments. However, many of those only scratch the surface. The better, long-lasting solution is liquid collagen which is absorbed right into the bloodstream.
It’s a simple solution that provides optimal results in as little as eight weeks. Start rejuvenating your skin and getting the smooth, radiant complexion you deserve.
