Do you struggle to maintain a good healthy looking skin despite having tried so many different products? The secret to having beautiful skin may be easier than you think! You can obtain that natural glowing skin on your face by following a few simple tips.
Don’t use heavy-duty cleansers
The best cleansers are mild, non-detergent cleansers. Look for products that contain gentle, plant-derived surfactants (such as the prefix coco– which is short for coconut, for example, or gluco– which is derived from fruit sugars).
Avoid using toner
Toners were invented to restore the natural acidity (pH) of the skin after being washed with alkaline-detergent soap. Therefore, if you are using a pH balanced cleanser, there is no need to use a toner. Many toners tend to be harsh on the skin, so if you can avoid using them at all, it’s probably best.
Make sure acid-laced products are pH-balanced
Look for the words “pH-balanced” on cleansers and exfoliators that contain glycolic or lactic acids. Some can have a low pH which causes dryness and dryness makes your skin appear older.
Use fragrance-free products
The most common cause of skin-care-related allergic reactions is the use of fragrance in your skin products. It’s simply a lot healthier to use products that are labeled “fragrance-free”, especially if you know you have sensitive skin. Products that are marked “unscented” typically contain very small amounts of fragrance to help cover the odors of active ingredients. These are the products you want to use.
Opt for multitasking moisturizers
The best moisturizers are those that provide both hydration and protection. Look for a moisturizer that has plant-based moisturizers such as natural oils, butters, and essential fatty acids. These penetrate the skin better than man-made emollients like petroleum. Also, make sure that they contain nonirritating physical sunblocks, like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
