In this the article, I’ll talk about natural skin care tips. A dilemma that has gripped the nation is the desire to stay young forever. We all look for ways to preserve our youthfulness, to stay the same in our 80’s as we were in our 30’s. One of the most common way to do this is to care for one’s skin. A person’s age is judged by their skin and to keep the skin young. We try plenty of creams, lotions, herbal methods, traditional methods and other modern day techniques.
Instead of hundreds of dollars on such products, simple steps and methods will keep your skin young and fresh for years to come. Many of these skin care products have harmful chemicals that are dangerous in the long run. They may work for the temporarily by making your skin seem fresh. But after the few years some can and do destroy the skin.
These natural skin care tips are essential and useful in keeping your skin healthy and young. Following are the simple steps that you can adopt to preserve your youthfulness:
It is important to realize that the skin does not need to be washed over and over again. It is an organ of your body and it has some natural oils that are essential and by washing it again and again. We cleanse our skin of those natural oils. Secondly, we often by harsh scrubs that contain zero-oil and similar scrubs may actually damage the skin. Hence, we should instead opt for soft scrubs. Rinse any skin care product you use properly with lots of water. To remove makeup use coconut oil. It’s natural, non-toxic, moisturizing and great for your skin.
For those who use sunscreen that absorb the UV rays should remember to apply it at least 30 minutes before exposing the skin to the sun. This is important because such sunscreens takes a longer time to work. If you expose your skin to the sun too soon after applying the sunscreen, it may be ineffective in preventing damage. Furthermore, it is important to check the SPF rating before buying such products. The SPF rating determines the amount of time that the sunscreen will protect the skin. For example SPF 20 would increase the time before burning by a factor of 20. So, in this example, if you usually burned in 10 min then you would be able to be in the sun for 200 minutes. An ideal SPF rating is between 30 and 50.
Pores are genetically predetermined. So if you have large pores, using potent toners to shrink them won’t do much other than potentially dry out your skin and even damage it. Washing the face regularly and keeping the skin clear from dirt. And other contaminants will make the pores less visible.
It is also very important to realize that there are many things that we cannot change. For example. Those who have naturally oily skin cannot change the nature of the skin and scrubbing it and washing it frequently will only cause irritation.
Baking soda also helps in cleaning the skin and makes it lighter. To use baking soda you can put it in the water while taking a bath or in the sponge during a shower. You can also make a paste with it and use as a mask.
Avoid eating junk food like potato chips and sugar. Instead, opt for foods that are “nutrient dense” Foods rich in proteins, vitamins, amino acids & minerals like fresh fruits and vegetables. Apples are quite useful for the skin. Vegetables like cauliflower and beans also help in keeping the skin looking young. High fiber foods like dried fruits such as dates are also recommended.
Furthermore, drink lots of water as it cleanses the skin from within. Drink at least 2 liters of water daily to keep the skin healthy. At least a liter per 100 lbs of body weight as rough guide.
These are the few simple ways that will be helpful in keeping the skin young and healthy for years to come. These natural skin care tips are easy to use and are much cheaper compared to the skin products that are available. So, there’s no need to use all the exorbitantly priced creams and lotions and expensive skincare products. And start following these simple steps for youthful looking skin.
