So, there’s this trend i noticed among we young ladies that is poking me to death (pun intended) – “The Excessive Use of Cosmetics”…… Since I’m still Young and not contemplating Death, I’ve decided to do something about the Trend before it kills me!
The first Headache that concerns me is why we (ladies) think that splurging chemical substances on our body all in the name skin Beauty when all we actually need for a radiant skin is the right type of Beauty regimen……….
Well, I’m not a woman of many words. To hit the Nail in the Head, Here are a few tips i’ve got on how to attain Beautiful skin
Keep your skin clean: A
clean skin is a beautiful skin, wash your skin at least twice daily.
NOTE: Avoid the use of heavily perfumed soaps,use a mild soap preferably a pure one. E.g Ivory soap..
1. When washing your skin, avoid the use of Hard or scrunchy sponges, it scrapes off essential skin oils, leaving it dehydrated, dry, and flaky!
2. Wash Your face with the soft towel, please keep your hands off your face, your fingernails harbour harmful bacteria that could clog pores and damage skin cells.
Feed your skin: Like your body system, do not leave your skin ’empty’. Massage your skin with effective naturals like Vitamin E oils and a good body cream!
If its a hot day, apply oil free body cream, or minimise its use, avoid the use of ‘skin whiteners’, as they contain mercury which destroys the surface of the skin and thus facilitates ageing!
Reduce use of cosmetics. It clogs skin pores and prevents entrance of oxygen. If you wear make-up, stick to skin-sensitive products.
Never go to bed with your makeup on, if you are too tired to wash, clean your face with a damp towel!
Keep your skin Hydrated. Hydrated skin is healthy skin, water is an effective detoxifier, it helps remove harmful and unwanted substances keeping your skin clean, fresh and smooth!
After washing your skin, if you have the time mostly at night, let the skin dry off on its own, it absorbs the water and is thus an important way of skin hydration.
Balance your diet: Vitamins C and E, which helps the skin remain smooth and nourished are found in fruits and vegetables, so eat more of Them!
That will be it for this Week. Remember to drop your Comments and Questions below.
