Most important advice on skin care for light-skinned folk: wear sunscreen.
Thanks for the tips.
My face & body say "thank you."
Good tips. Thank you
for exfoliates try to pick those that have natural ingredients rather than plastic microbeads.
Can these be same for body skin also? Hey, I'd heard about you SparkPeople a lot. Just suggest me that, massaging will help me to get rid off all my skin issues like cellulites or others? I'd heard about http://www.cellublue.com for massaging. Tell me whether it will be working? And also is my skin safe?
Those beads you are telling people to look for are made of plastic, and end up in our waterways and lakes. They float, so they are not filtered out at sewage treatment facilities. And when they wind up in lakes, they absorb toxic pollution, and then fish eat them, thinking they are tiny eggs! They are the exact same size as the eggs they would normally eat. Please read this article:
To exfoliate, you only need to lather on something and scrub with a loafah or a washcloth.
Don't forget drink water daily, even when you are not thirty. Water can help you to increase smooth for your skin. You can also wash face by warm water twice a day and after makeup.
Drinking water and getting enough sleep! The keys to health and beauty, in my experience.
It's fun to play with the lotions and potions, but without the basic lifestyle habits, they are not going to work their magic.
Great article. Yes drinking plenty of water os good for you. I don't use nothing on my face but a little lotion. All that other stuff no way.
I follow everything this article states. I have been doing it for years but now since I'm 36 years old my skin is changing once again. Very Very Very oily and nothing seems to help. And forget makeup- all the liquid foundations I've tried seem to run right off and pores seem bigger than ever. Any suggestions?
As I got older my oily skin turned to combination skin, with an oily t zone and drier cheeks. Moisturizers, the right ones, definitely are a must for me at this point. I feel that I omitted using them rather longer than I should have -- as soon as I started using one, my face just felt SO much more comfortable especially at night and in the wintertime. I agree too, that drinking plenty of liquids can help keep skin looking good, again, particularly during dry times of the year or in dry environments!
