Steam your Face
Steam opens up the skin pores and helps to flush out toxins and blackheads from within. It also increases circulation and helps in the deep cleansing of the skin. Just boil some water over the stove and transfer the contents in a large bowl. Then hold your face against over it for about 5-7 minutes. You can also cover your head with a towel in order to prevent steam from escaping. Steaming your face also helps the skin absorb the active ingredients of the products more effectively.
Massage your Facial Muscles
While applying your skin care products, make sure you massage your face for a couple of minutes daily. Not only is it relaxing but it also improves the circulation, stimulates tissues and releases facial tension. As a result, your skin appears more plump and supple.
Apply Moisturizer on Damp Skin
Before applying moisturizer, make sure you wet your face. This is because moist skin absorbs moisturizers better. Just splashing some water on your skin makes a huge difference to the results delivered by your moisturizer. Remember to use a suitable moisturizer as per the season. For winter, use rich creamy moisturizers like Skin Care Heaven Green Tea Soothing Cream while in the summer shift to something light and oil-free like Skin Care Heaven Anti-oxidant Oil-Free Moisturizer.
Exfoliate your Lips
Exfoliating your face is not enough. Your lips need some care too. Just take a little bit of your scrub and rub it over your lips as well. But take care what product you use. Certain scrubs can be quite harsh on your skin. Use something like the Skin Care Heaven Anti-Aging Exfoliating Scrub. It contains green and white tea to produce powerful antioxidants into the skin while helping to correct sun damage. It can used on the skin as well as on the lips. Or else, you can use your toothbrush to brush away the dead skin cells on your lips. However, don't forget to follow up with a good lip balm.
Cleanse your Face Twice a Day
This step should never be overlooked. Cleanse your face at least twice a day – once in the morning and once at night. Women with oily skin can cleanse once in the afternoon as well to control the oiliness of the skin. For this, it is advisable to invest in a good cleanser. Select a cleanser that contains potent ingredients that remove all the dirt, debris and dead skin cells from within the pores without leaving your skin dry.
Use Warm (Not Hot) Water
remember to turn down the heat in your shower while taking bath, hot water showers may feel good but the hot water removes moisture from the skin and leaves it dry. Therefore, keep the water lukewarm and apply a rich moisturizing lotion immediately after you get out of the shower. Try Kinerase Daily Defense Lotion with SPF 30. It not only moisturizes the skin but also protects against any sub damage. It contains an active ingredient called Kinetin which helps to improve the texture and tone of the skin along with improving fine line and wrinkles.
