7 Vital Skin Care Tips

Now that you’re considering making your own homemade skin care remedies, here are just a few tips on how to use them. It’s always best to get into a routine when it comes to any health issue.

It’s just as important that you develop definite habits when it comes to personal skin remedies. You can start with a few of the easier ones. As you go along, you may develop a more specific routine that suits you better.

Homemade Skin Care Tip #1 ~  Exfoliate Every Evening

Once you wash your face at night, exfoliate! Be sure to use a delicate scrub. If you haven’t yet made an exfoliating recipe or are temporarily out, you can easily exfoliate with just sugar or oatmeal. It’s as easy as that!

Homemade Skin Care Tip #2 ~ Use Facial Masks

This step many of us (including myself) are guilty of ignoring. Perhaps it’s the image television shows portray of women who practice this. Perhaps we don’t want to look silly in front of spouses or endure the endless kidding of our children.

Well, just forget about those possible consequences and employ masks anyway! It’s a marvelous tool to keep your skin looking beautiful. I’ve even written one chapter dedicated to mask recipes. So, indulge! You deserve it!

Homemade Skin Care Tip #3 ~
 Use Moisturizer and Plenty of It

I didn’t learn the benefits of moisturizer until I was older. Fortunate are the women who start using them when they’re younger. Why? Mostly because your skin actually craves moisturizers.
Many skin care experts recommend you use moisturizers at night, so they can penetrate your skin undisturbed. These same experts suggest that you “treat” your skin to applications of alpha hydroxyl acids, vitamins A or C, and then put on the moisturizer. In this way these treatments are sure to be absorbed into your skin.

Homemade Skin Care Tip #4 ~ Treat Your Skin with Care

Even though you’re using natural homemade ingredients, treat your skin gently. Don’t act roughly when you clean your skin. Just because we call them facial scrubs, doesn’t mean you should be scrubbing your skin the way you do the kitchen floor!

If you treat your skin gently, you’ll decrease the odds of damaging it and acquiring wrinkles. Seems like an easy thing to do considering the consequences.

Homemade Skin Tip #5 ~ Protect Your Skin From Direct Sunlight

I’m not saying you need to shirk the sun like a vampire. But you definitely need to take precautions, especially when you sunbathe. (Yes, I know you’re going to do it!) Before you venture outside, for example, cover your skin with all the proper lotions.

You may also want to avoid the tanning booths. Far too many individuals get addicted to this method.  Their skin gets golden brown, yes, but it also gets dried out and it increases their chances of developing wrinkles. Worse yet, it still comes with all the dangers of real sunlight, including that of skin cancer!

Homemade Skin Care Tip #6 ~ Eat Fresh FoodsEat Fresh Foods For the Skin

What you put into your system shows up in the health of your skin. But you probably already know that in a limited way. Many individuals avoid chocolate because it worsens their acne.

It should come as no surprise, then, that proper nutrition should help improve the appearance of your skin. This tip may be one of the most important suggestions you’ll ever receive!

Homemade Skin Tip #7 ~ Drink Plenty of Water

Keeping your skin hydrated goes a long way toward maintaining healthy skin. You’ve already been told that it improves the functioning of all of your cells and your organs. Well? Your skin is your largest organ, so this only makes sense!

Most health experts say you need to drink a minimum of eight to 10 glasses of water a day  If you can do this, then you’re doing your skin a big favor!

Now that you’re armed with the benefits of natural skin care, you’re ready to take the plunge. You’re ready and even eager to make your own treatments. You’ll discover it’s exciting. But more than that, you’ll notice an immense improvement in your skin — and your overall health.

I have  provided  you with plenty of starter recipes for facial scrubs and masks. But don’t limit yourself to these recipes. Before long, you’ll be adjusting these to suit your specific skin characteristics. You may be even creating recipes of your own!
