Daily regimen for healthier skin
Healthier skin is dependant on a balanced
diet, hydration, adequate physical exercise,
protection from the sun and a daily skin care
regimen. You can follow four easy steps
to improve your skin's health.
Step One -- Cleanse. Cleansing you
skin and removing dirt, makeup and other impurities
that clog your skin is essential. You should
cleanse your skin at least twice a day with a
mild, non-irritating cleanser. Your cleanser
should not strip your skin of its natural
oils and it should easily rinse away.
Step Two -- Tone. Using a toner
rehydrates, cools, nourishes and refreshes your skin.
Toners remove any remaining traces of dirt,
makeup or oil you cleanser may have not removed.
It's good to use a toner that is alcohol-free,
as alcohol may dry your skin.
Step Three -- Exfoliate. Exfoliants
help remove dead cells that accumulate on the surface
of your skin. Make sure the exfoliant is not
granular so you do not damage new skin. Exfoliants
with alpha or beta hydroxy acids improve the skin's
rejuvenation process, eliminating fine lines and
Step Four -- Moisturize. Just as the
rest of you body requires hydration and nutrients,
so does your skin. Your skin should be treated with
a daytime moisturizer that provides a broad spectrum
sunscreen daily. At night, using a more
intense moisturizer helps to rebalance and normalize
your skin as you sleep.
These four basic steps can firm and restore your
skin's natural suppleness. Each step is also beneficial
for any skin type. You can choose products that are
specific to your skin's special needs to achieve
