Best Skin Care Tips for Summers!

A lot of people desperately wait the entire year for summers to set in, I personally don’t enjoy summers much, but I love one fact about summers, this season allows me to wear light and fewer clothes and not bother much about covering myself under layers of clothing.

Another reason I love summers is for the seasonal fruits like mangoes and that indulgence in the swimming pool. But something that I dislike most about the summer season is the havoc that it plays on my skin. Yes summer is one of the worst possible season when it comes to skin problems. The stickiness, the dry air, the overpowering heat of the sun and the sweat, almost everything leads of skin issues that I dread

Some of the major skin issues that summer season brings along are:

  1. Heat Rash
  2. Folliculitis
  3. Acne Breakouts
  4. Razor Burn
  5. Oily Sticky Skin
  6. Uneven Skin Tone
  7. Dry, Irritated Skin
  8. Body Odour
  9. Sun Burns/Allergy
  10. Heat Boils

But like they say prevention is better than cure, so here are some quick tips to keep yourself away from the summer skin problems

  1. Wash your face and hands with a mild cleanser at least twice a day.
  2. Wear light and loose fitted clothes to avoid getting a rash
  3. Avoid heavy creams and moisturizers
  4. Keep yourself as dry as possible, especially the folds of the skin
  5. In case of folliculitis, apply apple cider vinegar on the affected area
  6. Increase your water intake
  7. In the case of acne breakouts, don’t wipe dry the sweat, rather pat dry your skin and products as Dalacin-T solution clears up acne , so their use can definitely help get rid of it.
  8. Use talcum powder on antifungal powders for body odor and bathe regularly.
  9. Chilled cucumbers turned into a paste by blending can be applied on sunburns to soothe the skin.
  10. Eat a balanced diet with a slight increase in fresh fruits and green vegetables in your diet.
  11. Complete your skin care routine with the Image Skincare Total Retinol A Cream

Season Special- Winter Skin Care Tips

Winter is one season when our skin needs more care than any other season. The dryness of winters is extremely difficult to tackle with and more often than not we end up breaking our heads on which moisturiser should we use and what other things can help us. So here are some tips for you to combat the winter dryness

Winter skincare tips

 

If you’re feeling your skin dry out more than ever, you’re not alone. If your moisturizer just isn’t cutting it, it might be because it’s not right for your skin type. While moisturizers claim to, well, add moisture, what they really do is lock moisture from water into your skin and deliver it to where it needs to go. If you’re unsure whether your moisturizer is really getting the job done, here are some tips to help you out.

 

Difference between day and night moisturizer:

 

Day moisturizers should contain an SPF rating between 30 and 50 and broad spectrum protection to keep your skin from damage. Your facial skin is obviously much more sensitive and should have an SPF coverage regardless of what season it is.

 

Night moisturizers should be richer and creamier, often containing retinoids and peptides that will soak into your skin overnight. Retinoids are a form of Vitamin A that help fight wrinkles and fine lines, but can make your skin extremely vulnerable in the sunlight and when exposed, could increase the likelihood of skin tumors. Peptides on the other hand trigger the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, both of which naturally deplete over time and age. You want to make sure to avoid them in your day cream in order to also avoid the negative side effects they may trigger.

 

Difference between skin type:

 

Oily Skin:

If you have oily skin, you’ll be looking for moisture in order to control oil production. If oily skin is dried out (not moisturized enough), your skin will actually go into an overproduction of oil, basically making it even worse.

 

Dry Skin:

If you have dry skin, it’s likely because you have a low production of oil. You will want to look for ingredients that help reduce Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and moisturizes your skin consistently. This is when you’ll definitely want a night cream to introduce heavier occlusive and emollient ingredients to literally trap water in the skin’s upper layers.

 

Combination Skin:

If you have normal or combination skin, then most face moisturizers will work just fine. Use a heavier moisturizer in the winter months and go light on the T zone. Or pick a lighter moisturizer designed for oily skin and apply it all over, even in the T zone.

Drink more water

So many people fail to drink their recommended daily water intake. It’s easy to do, especially if you’re always rushing around. However, water is one of the best things you can do to boost the appearance of your skin. Water helps keep your skin plumped and hydrated, while other benefits of drinking water include reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and helping your body flush out toxins that can cause spots and blemishes.

Exfoliate

Regular exfoliation can make a huge difference to your skin’s appearance. A good buff will help eliminate dead skin cells, work cleansing products deep into your skin as well as help it to absorb moisturizer better. Using exfoliating treatments and buffing sponges is one of the recommendations from www.cellulite.com to help improve the appearance of cellulite. If you’ve got sensitive skin, avoid harsh exfoliators that could leave your skin red and irritated.

Ease up on the caffeine

While you might need caffeine to function, your coffee habit could be doing more damage to your skin than you realize. Caffeine can have an affect your blood vessels, stopping vital nutrients that help it to produce collagen and therefore prevent aging. See if you can switch to herbal teas instead of your regular coffee to see if it can leave your skin glowing and healthy.

Moisturize

Many women forget to moisturize while others will focus on moisturizing their face and not their body. Moisturizing is important to help your skin lock in moisture and give it a smooth and even appearance. You don’t have to buy an expensive moisturizer to feel the benefits, as even the action of moisturizing helps to promote blood flow or ease aching muscles. If you’re really short on time, try a moisturizing spray or in-shower product that’s perfect for keeping your skin soft and smooth when you’re on the go.

Exercise regularly

Weight gain can affect the appearance of your skin, and an unhealthy diet could be causing your face to appear red and greasy. Taking steps to look after your health through a good diet and exercise will do wonders for your skin, as well as boost your mood and energy levels. Finding time to exercise isn’t always easy, but you could combine exercise and TV so that you can exercise at home without having to take the time to go to the gym. Regular exercise boosts your skin’s blood flow, helping it get what it needs to look healthy.

The secret to glowing skin is all down to you. Make sure you give your skincare routine the attention it deserves and enjoy youthful, luminous skin that makes you happy with what you see in the mirror.

Long-term health and happiness isn’t always something we automatically have. Taking care of your health is especially important as you age, and finding happiness outside of material things is so important. The amount of people suffering due to a poor diet, or trying to find happiness in buying ‘stuff’ or getting followers on social media is ridiculous. Even celebrities aren’t immune with all of their fans and money. Celebrities fall ill all the time, and even end up with depression. That being said, certain celebrities do have great advice for people who want it. Here are 10 tips from celebrities who know what they’re talking about!

Are Your Teeth In Tip Top Condition?

https://www.pexels.com/photo/human-lips-65665/

Being human comes with a lot of responsibility. Our bodies are incredibly powerful machines that are super strong and can take us all the way from infancy to old age. To make sure that they can do that, we have a lot of health concerns to take care of. From healthy skin to organs that function properly, our lifestyle choices can make or break the way our bodies handle things. This couldn’t be any truer when it comes to out teeth. Not only are they an important part of our beauty regime, but they also are a huge part of our health. So, you need to be able to ensure that you keep them in tip top condition.

Clean

First things first, we all need to make sure that our teeth are clean. Although you make sure that your brush your teeth for two minutes, twice a day, that might not be enough. You have to get serious about flossing and start to focus on your gums too. If your teeth aren’t properly clean, even if you think they are, your gums will suffer and could even get infected. So, it could be in your interest to book in with a full-scale cleaning service with the hygienist at your dentist’s office. That way, they can be sure to clean off all of the junk and keep your teeth super clean.

White

Perhaps more of a beauty concern than a health one, but it’s always beneficial to your overall oral health to ensure that your teeth are super white. You might want to consider professional whitening options, but they can often be quite costly. If you don’t want to put a lot of money upfront to get whiter teeth, there are alternatives to consider. Along with at-home whitening kits, there’s also the super exciting idea of using charcoal toothpaste to create a longer lasting, shinier whitening effect.

Fresh

Getting back on to the health side of teeth, let’s talk about how to freshen up. Even if you don’t suffer from a strong case of halitosis, nobody likes to think that they have bad breath. So, you might want to take a few precautions to make sure that yours stays extra fresh. If you’re keeping everything clean, then you’re probably doing a good job already, but you’ll also find that mouthwash will help you out with this too. You can even get super strong brands that aim to kick bad breath. And just to be extra sure, it’s always a good idea to keep breath mints to hand.

Straight

And finally, up there with keeping your teeth white for beauty reasons, you might want to think about making them straight. Now, you may have had braces when you were a teen, but that doesn’t always mean that your teeth stay straight. The best part is that you don’t even have to wear the same kind of braces anymore. There are so many different ways to straighten crooked teeth; you can have a teeth straightening treatment and not even notice.
