Face Care Tips: How to Take Care of Your Face?

Face Care
Your face is the first thing people notice about you. It is an important part of the impression you make. But how much time do you really spend on caring for it?

Most of us think keeping the face clean is good enough. A quick wash and splash and we are done. However, the facial skin is more delicate and sensitive than the rest of your body and needs to be cared for accordingly.

Healthy skin is beautiful and hence requires extra effort. A good face care routine includes cleaning, moisturising and toning to keep the facial skin soft and supple. Harsh ingredients and aggressive actions can harm the skin, so you need to make sure that you are gentle and are using the right face care products.

How to Take Care of Your Face?
Follow these golden rules for healthy and beautiful facial skin:

Determine your skin type. The needs of every skin type are very different, and you may find that what works for oily skin could be damaging for dry skin, and vice versa.

When choosing face care products – cleansers, moisturisers, creams etc. – pick the ones that address the needs of your skin. If you have dry skin, then choose a face wash with moisturising benefits. If you have oily skin, choose a face moisturiser that hydrates the skin without making it sticky.

Don’t ignore the sensitive parts of your face. Although the facial skin is more delicate than the rest of the body, some parts like the under-eye areas, lips etc. have even more fragile skin. These need special care and attention, including products that have been specially formulated for them.

When cleaning the face with a face wash, first remove the make-up. This will not only remove any makeup products that are blocking the pores but also clean away dirt and grime of the day. A face wipe works wonders and can be followed up with a face wash if required.

While regular cleansing will keep the skin fresh, once or twice a week, you need deep cleaning action. Exfoliating is effective, yet gentle on the skin. Choose a product that smoothens and purifies the skin, while respecting its natural balance.

Well hydrated skin is soft and supple to the touch. Face skin that is moisturised also appears fresher and younger. Use a moisturiser that is suited to your needs.

Even though you may wipe it off, the make-up you use affects your face as it stays in contact with the skin for an extended period of time. When choosing makeup products, check the ingredients to ensure that they will not harm or damage the skin on your face, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Protection is always better than cure, so keep your skin safe from the harsh environmental effects. Make sure you never leave the house without appropriate sunscreen, and reapply during the day if you are out.

External stressors can also affect the health of your skin. Pollution, smoke, stress – these show on your facial skin. Leading a healthy lifestyle – eating and sleep well, and staying away from bad habits - will keep your skin healthy and beautiful.
Beauty Tips for Face
These simple face care tips will help you establish a good skin care routine for your face, and the glow will show:
  1. A face care regime helps keep you on track. Set one that is easy for you, and keep the products handy, so that you never skip on cleansing or moisturising, no matter how tired you are.
  2. When removing facial hair, choose a method that is not only long-lasting but also keeps your skin safe. Too much pulling and stretching can affect the skin’s elasticity, leading it to sag.
  3. Drink plenty of water and keep your body hydrated. Hydrated skin is healthy skin, and that glow will show on the face.
  4. Reduce contact with any kind of contaminants. Don’t keep touching your face, as this can lead to the transfer of bacteria.
  5. If you have oily skin, cleanliness is of utmost importance. Use a gentle facial cleanser that will not strip away the natural oils, and even though you may not believe it, you must moisturise regularly.
  6. Use lukewarm water in the shower, as hot water strips away the skin’s natural oils. Apply your moisturiser right after the shower, as your pores will be open and clean, allowing the nutrition to reach where it needs to.
  7. Never rub. Always pat dry with a soft towel.
  8. Vitamin A and C are beneficial for the skin and can be extracted from the right foods and beverages.
  9. Cover yourself. The sun can dry and age the skin prematurely, so make sure you cover yourself when out, with a hat or an umbrella. And don’t forget the sunscreen!
