Someone cave me the best skin care tip once. This person said: any time you put a product onto your skin, you're actually eating it. That statement really hit home for me. It made me think about all the products I was putting on my skin. Not to mention all the things that I was not even in control of that come in contact with my skin, like pollution.
So in essence, each time you apply a product onto your skin, the active ingredients that they contain are extremely see into your blood stream. Here, they become your breakfast, lunch or dinner. Several skin care tips have been created to help you nourish your skin more naturally. This way, when you rub a cream onto your face or hands, you do not have to worry that it's becoming part of your system.
First and foremost, look at what you are putting on your skin. Sorry to tell you, but most of the big-name brands on the market contain a laundry list of chemicals. Now, think back to my opening statement: would you want to be eating an array of chemicals? Probably not. So do not even think about putting them on your skin. When you buy a skin care product make sure it is free of parabens, fragrances, allergens and harmful chemicals.
You might be wondering at this point, what are parabens? For one, retailers and cosmetic companies love them. Essentially, they are preservatives. They are a group of chemicals broadly used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Why are the big companies using them? They are cheap and easily available and give products staying power so they can be sold longer. The downside? Research shows that high levels of paraben exposure over time can affect estrogen levels and lead to some forms of cancer.
It's OK, I do have some solutions for you. This all brings us to skin care tip number two: use naturally-made products. Go with skin care products made by companies who will assure you that every ingredient is pure and safe. Look for skincare products that contain natural moisturizing oils, vegetable-based waxes, reparative proteins, antioxidants, vitamins and plant extracts.
The best skin care tips include things you can do to nourish your skin daily. When you begin, select a skin care routine that is easy to follow and includes naturally made ingredients. Use a cleansing product in the morning and a moisturizing cream at night. Lastly, do not put anything on your skin that you would not serve on your table.
