Women around the world, typically love to be admired and desired. In this day and age, there are several beautiful ladies in every turn, so, how will you be assured that you will always be the apple of the eyes of your beloved?
One of the secrets is just skin-deep. Taking care of your appearance, arguably, is one of the major factors that keep the attention of your romantic partners glued on you. And one of the most telling signs of being beautiful and attractive is having a skin that looks radiant and youthful. So, how are you going to take care of that skin of yours girlfriend?
Here are ten helpful tips that will guide you in making sure your skin constantly glows and always looks fresh, grabbing your man’s undivided attention.
If you are budget-conscious and are more inclined to achieve a glowing skin through natural ways, loading up with H2O is one inexpensive option. Water is a good cleansing aid for our body. Numerous claims have been made that sufficient water-intake gives you a glowing, radiant, younger-looking skin.
Our skin is made of cells which, like any other cell in our body, are made of water. If your skin lacks the adequate amount of water, your skin will become dry and flaky which makes it prone to wrinkling. Drinking at least eight glasses a day will help rid the body and skin of toxins. So, drink more water every day.
If you aim to have a radiant and healthy-looking skin, a healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. A diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates can help promote younger-looking skin.
Keeping a balanced diet is one good way to keep your skin healthy. People who suffer from dry skin should eat foods that contain healthy fats and oils to give their skin more moisture. Eating foods like avocados, nuts and olive oil is recommended. Furthermore, foods that are rich in vitamin A such as tomatoes, carrots and spinach, green vegetables, red beans, and peppers help your skin retain moisture better.
They say that “you are what you eat” – and this could never be more true. Whatever you take in will reflect on the outside. If you make it a point to nurture from within, it will be seen through your skin.
Get enough quality sleep
It has been proven that when you are sleep-deprived, you are prone to bouts of acne. It can also increase the likelihood of premature wrinkles and skin drooping. Sleep deprivation is often accompanied by reduced collagen and, therefore, poor skin elasticity. This means more wrinkled and saggy skin that can result in a downturned or frowning expression.
Sleep deprivation ages the skin, thereby aging you. You would not want to look older than your actual age, right? The lines and blemishes that appear on your skin after a poor night’s sleep could only worsen as you age if you don’t get enough shuteye.
In the 2015 Bensons for Beds study, researchers examined a group of 30 women. These women all received a solid night’s sleep (8 hours) before having their faces documented. Researchers counted their wrinkles, pores, brown spots and red blemishes.
The same women then slept six hours a night for five nights in a row. Once more, the researchers counted these signs of aging. The researchers concluded that, after sleeping poorly for five nights, the subjects had twice the number of wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes and 3/4 more brown spots.
So make sure to have a restful and sufficient amount of sleep. Develop a close relationship with your pillows. You will reap a lot of good from it.
If you want an instant glow in your skin, facial mask is the answer for you. It is considered as one of the easiest ways to get healthy and supple skin within a few minutes. Facial mask is designed for different skin and age types, it has a variety of choices and beauty feature. Usually a facial mask product is to be used for a short period of time on the face. It takes only a few seconds to apply, and then you just have to wait for 15 to 20 minutes and then wash it off. It is highly recommended to include in your skin care routine.
As already mentioned earlier, our skin needs moisture to keep it from getting dry, rough, and flaky. Apply a hydrating moisturizer within two minutes of leaving the bath or shower. The skin is still porous and is vulnerable to products that are applied following the bath or shower, allowing better absorption.
Apply a product containing hyaluronic acid prior to your moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid holds 1,000 times its own weight in water, thus attracting water to the skin and holding it there.
Choose a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type. For daily use, consider a moisturizer that contains SPF.
According to the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, a chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin, and it is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.
The chemical peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world, and was performed in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome to help people achieve smoother, more beautiful skin. Today, chemical facial peels are popular because they offer nearly immediate results and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
Typically administered as a facial peel, a chemical peel enhances and smoothes the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. They exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and color.
You may also try a procedure called Microdermabrasion. It uses a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer.
This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and stretch marks. Microdermabrasion can improve age spots and black heads, improve hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin), exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance, lessen the appearance of stretch marks, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce or eliminate enlarged pores, and treat acne and the scars left by acne.
A medical facial is not about relaxation but the achievement of better-looking, healthier, rejuvenated skin. A medical facial provides a clinical approach to treatment and is more concerned with the outcome rather than a relaxing spa-like experience.
Medical facials are administered by a medical aesthetician trained in advanced skin care treatments. It is carefully customized for specific skin care needs. Many people have more than one skin care concern and labelling the skin as oily or dry is too general. A very thorough skin assessment should be done to determine skin concerns and to discuss options.
Medical facials/treatments are known to improve the tone and texture of the skin, increase collagen production, promote cellular turnover, unclog pores, reduce redness in the skin, erase broken capillaries, significantly decrease unwanted pigmentation and smooth fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars.
Fight the sun!
Lifelong exposure to solar radiation accelerates the skin’s intrinsic aging process that could lead to photoaging, which is characterized by wrinkles, dyspigmentation, laxity, roughness, and sallow skin. Photodamaged skin leads to collagen degeneration, redness, and an uneven skin tone just to name a few. Both ultraviolet (UV) B and UVA radiation are to blame for these changes.
One of the effective ways to prevent the problem of photoaging is the use of Sunscreen and Sun Topical Prescription Retinoid.
Protection starts by avoiding peak solar radiation, which occurs between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Modifying outdoor behavior by wearing sun-protective clothing and using sunscreen are some of the effective preventive measures to protect your skin from the sun can already cover your bases.
Smoking makes your skin look older and it also contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important for skin health. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin — the fibers that give your skin strength and elasticity. In addition, the repetitive facial expressions you make when smoking — such as pursing your lips when inhaling and squinting your eyes to keep out smoke — can contribute to wrinkles.
Quit Smoking to protect your skin.
