                    Skin Care Solutions for Younger Looking Skin

When you ignore your skin and fail to provide it with the care it needs, you will find
yourself looking old before your time. The better the skin care is at the moment, the
higher the chances are it will be better as you age. Here are some tips with the best
information for your skin care needs.

Sun and Skin Care

Exposing yourself to the suns harmful rays can cause your skin to become wrinkled
and spotted, and also cause other life threatening conditions, such as cancer. Take
care to wear protective clothing, and be liberal with the application of sunscreen.

When you find yourself in the sun, use lip balm to help protect your lips. You will
add some extra protection to your lips and stave off any harmful effects from the
sun.

Always wear sunscreen or skin care products that contain an SPF level of at least
fifteen; this helps fight sun damage. Sunscreen helps prevent wrinkles, sunburns
and peeling skin. If you wear sunscreen regularly, you can actually slow the aging
process down, and wrinkles and fine lines won't develop as quickly.

Remember to always protect your skin when going outdoors. The UV rays from the
sun can damage your skin, causing wrinkles and even cancer. Everyone likes to have
fun in the sun, and you should do so; however, it is important that you monitor how
much time you spend in the sun.


If there is one good thing you can do for your skin, it is to avoid tanning beds at all
costs. Many tanning salons boost that their tanning beds are safe, but in reality, this
is not true. All UV rays expose you to radiation. You can avoid getting wrinkles and
skin cancer by staying out of tanning beds.

Sensitive Skin Care

Anyone with sensitive skin ought to seek products that are formulated to offer
gentler cleaning. Products that contain perfumes, dyes, chemicals or are not
hypoallergenic, create irritated skin and lead to rashes and breaking out.
If you see a drastic change in your skin or you have symptoms that have not gotten
better, make sure to consult a doctor, specifically a dermatologist. Not seeking
professional help can aggravate important skin issues and cause more damage.
Don't just use any old soap to clean your face every day. For best results, use
natural unscented soap and toner and then moisturize your skin with a gentle
lotion.

Never use bar soap on the face. You should never use bar soap on your face, only
from the neck down. However, on your face it can clog you pores resulting in
irritation and outbreaks. Wash your face only with products precisely formulated for
facial use.
Don't use scrubs or loofahs to exfoliate if you have sensitive skin. As an alternative,
use an all natural cloth to rub your body as soon as you emerge from a warm bath.
This ensures that you remove dead skin cells without risking irritation from harsh
chemicals or abrasive scrub particles.

Keeping Skin Healthy
If a person uses a product that can provide them with antioxidant skin care results
they can heal their skin. This has a number of different benefits. The first is that the
chances of developing skin cancer may be reduced. It is unknown what kind of
impact this can have on your chances of developing skin cancer but it can be
helpful. Antioxidants return the electrons that free radicals removed and help to
stabilize the cells.

As well, it can also help to slow the damage to the skin cells and the breakdown of
compounds such as collagen and elastin. These fibers hold our skin layers together
so that they cannot sag. When we are younger and our skin has a lot of collagen and
elastin in it, the skin will be firmer and less prone to wrinkling. By reducing the rate
at which collagen is damaged or lost, we can slow the rate at which our skin ages.

Stay away from sodium if you want a healthier skin. Beware of hidden sources of
sodium, such as in diet sodas. Swollen jaw lines and puffy eyes are the results of too

much sodium. Instead, choose foods that are low in sodium, and consider switching
to a diet soda brand that does not contain sodium.

While many people are aware of the benefits of garlic on their overall health, many
are unaware of how it can be used to treat infections. In order to get rid of pimples,
you can use garlic on them. Crushed garlic works well with removing pimples from
your face. Do not apply this paste around your eyes, nose or mouth. If you have an
open cut or wound, the application of the garlic will hurt, but it also destroys the
bacteria present. Wait for a couple of minutes, rinse off the garlic, and dry your
face. Do not rub or scrub!

Try to keep stress as low as possible. When your stress level rises, your body
produces extra hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones can
cause lots of different skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and acne. If you can
improve your stress management, then you can improve your skin.

Your skin will look better if you drink lots of water. Without enough water, skin cells
will start to dehydrate. The recommended daily amount is 64 ounces. Your skin can
start to become dry, irritable and very itchy. To avoid this, and bring your skin the
bounce and resiliency it needs, make sure to maintain a steady intake of water.

Do not smoke if you want your skin to have a healthy appearance. Wrinkles and
premature aging of your skin are both associated with smoking. This is because
smoking prevents your skin from receiving adequate oxygen. It will wreck the
collagen and elastin in your skin. Smoking can cause the skin to become wrinkled
around the eyes and mouth.

Soothe and heal your skin with masks made of cucumber and rosewater or of garlic.
You can make a cucumber and rosewater mask pulverizing cucumber in the blender
with just a few drops of rosewater. A garlic mask can be made by pulverizing eight
garlic cloves in the blender with a few drops of aloe vera gel or juice. For either one,
apply the mask to clean skin for twenty minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water,
then cold water. Use white vinegar as a toner to balance the pH of your skin.

Anti-Aging
You can always enlist the help of alpha-hydroxy treatments. The acids in this
treatment are often found in many everyday foods, such as fruit and milk. Alpha-
hydroxy acid is also in wine. These acids break down protein bonds that can make
dead skin linger. Once these bonds are severed, it becomes easier to slough it from
the surface of your skin. As a result, the skin appears more radiant and healthy.

By utilizing skin care products that cause collagen stimulation the skin works to
rebuild itself naturally and effectively. It is the natural aspect of collagen stimulation
that makes it such a great way to combat aging. Unlike products that simply
introduce synthetic forms of collagen onto and into the skin, collagen stimulation
mimics the natural action of young skin and is therefore much more effective than
skin creams and lotions that target aging in other ways.

The key is to find a product that supplies many of the ingredients needed for
collagen stimulation. It can be helpful to find a product that can supply collagen,
elastin and hyaluronic acid. These three ingredients can help to make skin start
rebuilding itself and can give you the noticeable results you have been looking for.
You also want to make sure that the products you are looking for also contain
natural ingredients rather than relying on synthetic ingredients and chemical
compounds that may irritate the skin or damage your health.

One excellent form of collagen to look for in your skin care products is Cynergy TK.
Because it is a completely natural source of collagen that is made up of smaller
collagen molecules it can be absorbed easily and end up working much more quickly
than many of the other collagen stimulation products on the market today.



Skin Moisturizer
Using a moisturizer with humectants in it is a great way to treat your skin before
bed. When you are sleeping, the temperature in your body goes up, which creates
sweat and moisture. Since this can cause dry skin, you should be sure to use a
lotion.

Make sure you are using the right moisturizer. As the weather change, you will need
to moisten your skin more or less: you might have to use a different moisturizer in

the summer and in the winter for instance. Look for a moisturizer that does not clog
your face and is gentle for your skin.

Twice a day is the right choice for cleansing your skin. This will allow you to clean
out all of the items that will cause your pores to become clogged. Be sure to use a
gentle moisturizer after you cleanse.

Often the skin around a woman's eyes can be much drier than the rest of the facial
skin and she may be at a loss as to how to treat it safely and effectively. But why is
this so true for so many women?

In order to combat dry skin around eyes it is important to use moisture rich
products that can penetrate the surface of the skin and hydrate the underlying cells.
With the skin around the eyes there are fewer layers and so therefore, fewer
underlying cells to work with. As well, because this area is located around the eyes,
products with strong fumes or odors can actually burn or irritate the eyes. It is
necessary to use powerful, effective products that will not result in any burning,
stinging or damage to the eyes.

Natural ingredients are often best when it comes to treating dry skin around eyes.
Looking for products that can protect the skin while it is being moisturized and
hydrated is one important step that a woman can take to ensure her skin looks as
fresh and as hydrated as possible.



Skin Cleansing
There are many misconceptions that consumers have about facial cleansers. These
misconceptions can have long lasting effects on your appearance and your health.
They can cause you to waste money on products which are ineffective at the very
least and, at worst, which can be dangerous to your health. By learning the facts
about facial cleansers you will be able to avoid making these same mistakes. Your
health and your beauty will thank you for it.

The first mistake that many people make is that facial cleansers have to foam or
produce suds in order to work. This is a dangerous assumption. Many times a
cleansing product will foam not because it is cleaning effectively, it is because it

                              http://SkinLooksYounger.com
                               http://SkinLooksYounger.com


contains an ingredient known as sodium laureth sulfate. This cheap chemical
additive can cause long lasting health problems.

Top facial cleansers, which use natural ingredients rather than chemical additives,
may actually either produce minimal amounts of suds or no suds at all. They instead
use plant extracts and other natural ingredients in order to accomplish the cleansing
effects. One great ingredient to look for is kaolin, a special type of clay. This
ingredient does not foam. It does pull oil and dirt from the pores and cleans your
skin very effectively.

A second mistake that many people make is that they choose facial cleansers which
do not contain any moisturizing ingredients. Remember that if you are stripping oils
from your skin it needs something to replace them or it will feel dry, tight and
uncomfortable. It is always important to moisturize after but selecting a cleanser
which also includes moisturizing ingredients can be a great way to avoid the dry,
tight feeling that so many products can cause.

If you look for natural ingredients such as manuka honey, olive oil, macadamia oil
and shea butter, you can end up with skin that feels soft and hydrated instead of
dry and uncomfortable. When you have beautiful soft skin when you are finished
cleansing you can feel confident that your skin is clean and healthy.

When removing the dirt from your skin, stay away from products that have strong
chemicals. Harsh chemicals, even in a cleanser, can irritate your skin and make your
condition worse. Rather than using these harsh cleaners, find something that is very
mild and made with naturally-antibiotic ingredients.

To have healthy skin, it is important to pick the right cleanser. If you have dry skin,
pick a creamy cleaner that will help to moisturize your skin. If your skin tends to be
oily, a clear cleanser will be best, as this will help to dry up your skin's excess oils.
Choosing the wrong cleanser can leave your face oily or dry, so it is important to
consider your skin type when considering a cleanser.

Be sure to wash your face and remove all of your makeup before you go to bed.
Bacteria can't grow as well if you wash the makeup off and get rid of excess oils.
Sleeping allows you to refresh and renew your skin.
