Daily Skin Care Routine for Beautiful, Healthy, Glowing Skin
We all want beautiful healthy looking glowing skin, a skin which is free from all kinds of skin problems, be it acne, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, wrinkles etc. We all crave for such fair flawless skin but how many of us really have. Some people are born with pretty face and skin while most of us have to work on ourselves to achieve the targets. All of us try different methods and home remedies for getting beautiful fair skin. The craze for fair skin in India is so much that people don't even fear from trying one fairness cream after the other, which ultimately results in deterioration of the skin condition in some way or the other because most of the fairness skin creams are loaded with so many chemicals. That is the reason I always suggest people to try natural safe methods for skin whitening and tightening. One can use Potato for fair skin, since it works like a bleaching agent giving white skin if used on regular basis. Its always better to use herbal ayurvedic products or the products from a reputed cosmetics brand specially when it comes to deal with your facial skin. In this post today, I will discuss simple yet very effective steps which will not only help you in achieving flawless glowing skin but also maintain it for long with little time and effort on daily basis.
Common Skin Problems & their Causes:
There are many types of skin problems, which people face like acne, zits, pimples, skin darkening and tanning, whiteheads, blackheads, open pores, dull dry skin, itching and many more. Here I will list few of the most common issues people face.
Oily Skin - Acne and Pimples.Acne is one of the most common and biggest skin issues oily skin people face, specially the teenagers in their teenage suffer from this problem of pimples the most. The facial skin condition of some people during their teenage is so bad that they feel so much pain all over their face because of those thick painful pimples. These pimples not only affect the outer appearance of a person but also results in less self confidence in some extreme cases. These acne can also leave ugly marks called as acne scars behind if not handled carefully. This problem is normally common because of the excess accumulation of oil in the skin among people with oily skin.
Acne Scars - Acne scars are the result of acne and pimples not handled properly. Its always said one should never touch acne with their hands trying to push and press them, since these leave behind acne scars. Its always advised not to touch your face if you suffer from acne prone skin since these might lead to skin irritation and infection. One can refer to this post on home remedies for acne and acne scars for more information on this.
Skin Darkening - Skin darkening and tanning is one of the most common skin problems which people have to deal with. Some people are born with dark skin while some face this problem of skin darkening when their skin gets tanned in the sun. However dark skin is not a problem or any issue but since so many people crave for fair skin, this has become an issue to deal with. People try so many fairness creams and whitening skin creams to achieve fair skin but most of these creams initially give good results finally harms the skin rather than doing good which further results into more skin problems.
Pigmentation - Pigmentation is the appearance of different kind of scars and marks on face. These can be acne scars or the scars left on face because of sun tan and sun damage. Normally when people spend lot of time in sun without any sunscreen protection, the condition becomes more severe specially during the peak hours when sun rays are most powerful. Therefore its always advised to use a proper sunscreen before stepping out in sun.
Open Pores & Blackhead - When there is too much oil produced in the oil glands, this results in formation of blackheads. This extra oil gets collected in the pores and its outer part being exposed to air becomes black, thus called as blackhead. When we try to remove the blackhead manually by squeezing it, this further worsens the skin condition forming open pores. Its always said to use scrub and steam method for safe removal of blackheads.
Dry Skin & Wrinkles - People with oily skin deal with problems like acne, zits, open pores while people with dry skin face other problems like dryness, dullness, roughness, wrinkles and many more. Most people with dry skin struggle with wrinkles the most. Regular application of good quality moisturizer with proper diet helps in dealing with dry skin. Exfoliation of skin at regular intervals helps in getting rid of dry rough skin thus maintaining soft healthy looking skin.
Essential Steps for Beautiful Flawless Skin:
I listed few of the most common problems as an hindrance to beautiful skin. Most of these problems can be easily solved just by following few simple skin care steps - Cleansing, Toning & Moisturizing. Just by regularly following these essential steps, one can get rid of several skin problems like dullness, dryness, oiliness. Not only this, even the problem of acne, pimples and pigmentation can be reduced to great extent just by giving little time to our daily routine. One should wisely choose products according to your skin type while following these steps of cleaning, toning and moisturization.
Cleansing - Cleansing is one of the basic and most important part of skin care routine. Dirt, dust, pollution make our skin tired and unhealthy giving rise to several skin problems, thus proper cleaning of skin using a suitable face wash according to the skin type is very important for a healthy skin. People with sensitive skin should stick to cleansers specially for sensitive skin like Cetaphil Sensitive Skin Cleansing Lotion.
Toning - Toning of the skin is very important to close down the pores open due to the cleaning of the skin. Applying toner according to the skin type helps in closing of the open pores along with maintaining the pH balance of the skin thus avoiding the problem of dry and oily skin.
Moisturizing - Finally comes the moisturization of skin to retain that softness for long. Its often said that if we use a moisturizer on damp skin immediately after washing face, retains the moisture on skin for long making if soft and smooth. One should use a good moisturizer according to skin type considering oily free moisturizer for oily skin and creamy moisturizer for dry skin.
Scrubbing and Exfoliation - Scrubbing and exfoliation of the skin at regular intervals like once in a week or fortnight is very important to get rid of dead dry skin which makes skin look dull and rough. This rough dead skin needs to be exfoliated using a scrub, to reveal healthy glowing skin. One should be very gentle and soft while rubbing scrub as it might hurt the sensitive skin if used abruptly. Although scrubbing is not required on daily basis but is very important to get rid of the dead skin and needs to be done once or twice a week as per the skin type. I recommend using this home made sugar scrub for glowing skin once a week for best results.
This was all about skin problems and their treatment including their remedies and cure to achieve beautiful skin. Mostly people with oily and dry skin face many skin problems so these have been discussed mainly since people with normal skin don't face many problems. However people with normal skin should also follow these essential skin care steps to maintain the beauty of their skin.
