Using a moisturizing body wash and putting on lotion all over your body will help prevent wrinkles and stay looking young. Sometimes attention is focused primarily on the face when discussing skin care, but there is much more to be concerned about. Use an all over body moisturizer when getting out of the shower to rehydrate.
Make sure you get plenty of sleep every night. Getting enough sleep will help keep your skin looking healthy. It will reduce those heavy, dark circles that sometimes appear under your eyes. Plenty of sleep is even crucial in some metabolic functions that deliver all important nutrients to your skin.
Even if you are a man, you still want to have healthy, moisturized skin. Men are prone to wrinkles and fine lines caused by skin dehydration as easily as women, but this can be kept at bay if you choose to use a moisturizer. These moisturizers should include SPF protection as well to help prevent sun damage.
A necessary skin care step that many people skip is exfoliation. This is the removal of the top layer of dry, dead skin using either a soft brush or exfoliation gloves. It’s necessary for younger, healthier skin. In fact, the reason why men often have younger-looking skin than women, is because shaving automatically exfoliates their skin. An added bonus for women, is that exfoliating will help their foundation go on more smoothly
When people touch their face a lot, they are putting a lot of oil, grease and dirt directly onto their skin. It is important if you want good skin that you don’t do this. Try to keep your hands away from your face as much as possible, and if you do need to touch it, use a tissue or towel.
A great skin care tip is to avoid leaving on wet socks or gloves for a long period of time. Keeping wet socks or gloves on can bother your skin, and even cause sores. When you get home, immediately take your wet socks and gloves off so you can maintain healthy skin.
Most people highly suggest that wearing make up is not harmful to your skin. However, in excessive amounts it can be. It is okay to dress up sometimes, but wearing make up daily can be harmful. A lot of the make up does clog your pores. Scrubbing it off every night can harm your skin and make your skin lose its moisture balance. Make up removers can be harsh chemicals to your skin and rubbing your make up off can eventually result in wrinkles, especially around the eyes.
Remember that when you first get out of the shower and your skin is still damp is the best time to moisturize. Our bodies are made of over seventy percent water, so re-hydration is important to maintaining young, healthy skin. Don’t focus solely on your face and forget your body. Be kind to your skin and it will serve you well for years to come.
