Looking After Your Skin – The Basics – Part 1

This is the 1st part of a series I will be posting – Skin: The Basics.

I am aware that this may seem a bit ‘sucking eggs’; but I do believe we should start very simply! So let’s begin with probably the most important place when it comes to Skin – The Face.

Your face is the first part of your body where age really starts to show.

If you want to avoid premature wrinkles and signs of aging, then you really have to take care of your face & it’s skin.

One of the best ways to do so is through carefully monitoring your daily cleansing routine.

Woman in splashes of waterWhen you wash your face, use gentle, circular motions. Try to massage it rather than scour it. And you should use your fingers or a soft cloth or pad rather than an abrasive scrubber.

You want to treat your skin as though it is delicate. Even though it seems like it can take the abuse of a rough scrubbing and cleansing, which can leave it with a temporary glow, it will age your face too quickly.

If you are not gentle with your face, then you will stretch out the skin and harm the capillaries underneath.

Use a facial cleanser when you clean your face and start from the neck, working upward. This helps rejuvenate your skin and fight off aging effects over time.

Doing this every day helps your skin look fresh and hydrates it, keeping back the dryness that can lead to wrinkles.

Okay, so we have started very simply….but you would be surprised just how many people forget ‘the basics’.

For those of you that are after a bit more – below is YouTube video that gives you all the basics & a few tips (actual Aloe Vera plant!)…I like this as it is very simple, she uses ‘std’ products & her skin is stunning!! Enjoy!

Until next time – Thanks for reading.
