any people think that skin-care routines are for ladies only, which is not true. If you are running your own business, you would agree with me that fetching millions of dollar deals are worth the time spent than doing your own facial cleansing and routine checkup. But don’t ever forget that your first impression invariably last longer in your customers’ head than you’d expect. A good looking and clean facial skin may prove to be your ultimate prerequisite in striking your negotiation deal. That said; let’s take a look at some of the dos and don’ts in getting the perfect skin.
The Dos of getting a beautiful skin
Do exercises: Exercising makes you look good and feel good. It improves blood circulation to bring oxygen and nutrients to the skin. This makes it firmer and more nourished, as well as slows down aging. Exercising regularly also helps to improve your appearance, prolong your life, build self-confidence and gives you a good figure/shape. Improved blood circulation also helps to calm the nerves and promote a more revitalizing sleep.
Do use beauty products: Cleanse your face every day with face cleanser, toner and moisturizer. There are literally thousands of different brands to choose from, but always use products suitable for your skin type. Consult a skincare expert to determine the best type of product for you.
Do drink water: A major cause of wrinkles is dehydration. Water hydrates the skin and keeps it moist, soft and supple. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. To make this easier for you, always carry a bottle of water wherever you go.
Do rest: Lack of sleep makes your skin look dry and dull, and also makes your eyes look puffy. When you don’t have enough sleep or rest, you feel tired and restless. We all need an average of 8 hours of sleep every night as adults, but many of us have only 5 to 6 hours. The effects of inadequate sleep start to show as you age. So, try as much as possible to get enough sleep every day.
Do eat properly: Keep your vitamins up by eating at least 3 portions of vegetables or fruits daily. If you are not getting enough vitamins from foods or fruits, take multivitamin supplements. Stay away from fatty foods.
The Don’ts getting a beautiful skin
Don’t smoke: Smoking restricts blood flow to and from the skin, and increases toxin level in the blood. It also robs the skin of its vitality. People who smoke tend to have pallid complexion and wrinkles.
Don’t drink too much alcohol: It is not bad to drink alcohol. However, too much of it is bad for your skin. Alcohol can dehydrate the skin and slow down blood circulation. This reduces the skin’s moisture content and interrupts the flow of vitamins and minerals needed for a healthy complexion.
Don’t stress out: Stress is bad for you physically and mentally, and also bad for your skin. It can cause your face to suffer breakouts of pimples, inflammation and make it look dull. Relax!
Don’t fry in the sun: Use sunscreen with SP15 or higher rating when the sun’s rays are strongest. It’s best to avoid the sun’s rays whenever possible because the Rays coming from the sun are dangerous.
In addition, if you are lady, always remove makeup from your face before going to bed, because makeup left on overnight is a major cause of clogged pores that lead to blackhead formation breakouts. Cleanse twice with a face cleanser after removing makeup – once for removing surface impurities, and the second time for deep pore cleansing.
Lukewarm water is best for cleansing the face. Water that is too cold or too hot can cause irritation dehydration, and may increase breakouts. Apply a non-astringent toner after cleansing to re-hydrate your skin and reestablish the PH balance.
With this, we can see that our everyday life has a lot to do with our skin. You don’t have to spend lots of time in order to get that perfect skin. Following the simple rules stated above will do you a whole lot of good.
