In the previous article, we learned about five different skin types, namely, normal, dry, oily, combination, and sensitive and a necessity of a proper skin care that would be adjusted for your particular skin type.
Today, read our skin care recommendations that are designed to guide you through a wide sea of various beauty tips and products towards finding what you really need in order to keep your skin smooth, young, and gorgeous.
1. Normal Skin …
Normal skin, although being the least problematic type, still requires cleaning, nourishing, and moisturizing.
- In the morning, refresh your skin with rose water or an alcohol-free astringent tonic and moisturize it with a mild, non-greasy cream, preferably made from natural ingredients without petroleum by-products.
- Use a good quality make-up, but do not overindulge. Before bed, gently wash your face with a mild soap, such as goat milk soap, and put on a bit of an oil-based nourishing cream, paying particular attention to the areas around your eyes.
- After about 15 minutes, gently pat your skin dry with a napkin.
- Once a week, use an egg yolk mask, or any other natural and non-drying mask to feed and rejuvenate your face skin.
- Do not forget to take care about your body, as well. Every day after showering, use a mild moisturizing lotion to keep your body skin supple and healthy.
2. Dry Skin …
Dry skin requires a more thorough care, since it is prone to flaking, irritating, and fast aging.
- If your skin is dry, you should use only natural and rich skin-care products, such as undiluted shea butter, extra-virgin coconut oil, or home-made herbal oils.
- Apply them twice a day and allow some time for your skin to absorb nourishing and moisturizing ingredients from the oil before putting a hypoallergenic make-up on.
- Try not to use tap water, if you must wash it, use sparkling water.
- Instead, clean your facial skin with mild cleansing milks or herbal infusions. With good care, dry skin will always look healthy and smooth.
- Get a humidifier, it should be on day and night, in winter and in summer, because air conditioning, which is always on, dries your skin every single day.
