If you want perfect skin you need to focus on 2 main skin care concerns. Firstly you need to protect your skin from harmful agents in the environment and the next thing to do is nourish it. Both of these steps are easy if you have the right technique.
Every person has their own natural beauty; the issue is how to maintain this beauty and continue being radiant. All skin tones have their own share of issues. Dark tones show signs of discoloration quicker than lighter skin tones that show ruddiness easily.
Protecting your skin is not difficult. Firstly understand the different elements that you need to protect your skin from. The sun is one of the most powerful elements on our planet and it is very important to protect your skin from the harmful rays. To do this you must use a good sunscreen lotion on all exposed parts of your body.
Many people choose to use sunscreen only during the summer; this is where they are wrong. Sunscreen must be worn everyday of the year in order to get protection from the sun. Other elements to protect your skin from are dirt, oil and pollution.
There is very little you can do to protect your skin in this case. Cleaning your skin regularly, facials, steam sessions and using a toner on your skin are simple and effective ways to protect your skin from these elements.
In order to get rid of dead skin cells, give your skin a deep cleansing and to prevent signs of aging from creeping in your face you must exfoliate your skin several times a week. You can use an exfoliating cream or simply use a cleansing product that contains exfoliating agents in them.
Medium toned women need to focus on reducing the size of their pores and keeping them clean. For this reason steaming the face regularly is very important. If your facial skin tone is uneven due to facial hair or bumps on your face then use creams to fade out the discoloration.
Dark skin tones are subject to hyper pigmentation even with the slightest marks on your skin. For this reason you must take all measures to protect your skin from acne and breakouts.
While protecting your skin is important you also need to nourish it. You can use products like Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and almond based products on your skin. Olive oil is equally effective so is coconut oil and Aloe Vera. Try these products to figure out what suits your skin the best.
