Tips For Skin Care

TIPS FOR SKIN CARECombination skin is caused by an imbalance in the production and distribution of lipids (due to hormonal and genetic factors). The pores of normal, combination skin are overly dilated, tend to have blackheads and be shiny in the T-zone. The skin is either overly dry or excessively oily, with occasional roughness on the cheeks. The oiliness and dryness can change too, depending on the time of year (skin is usually drier when the weather is cold). Even oily skin can become rough and irritated in winter. Here are a few skin care tips to consider.

Facials

Are facials necessary, and if so, what exactly do they do We provide all the details, including critical pros and cons you need to know before you make an appointment.

Fragrance & Skin-Care Products

As nice as it is to have a product with a wonderful aroma, it just doesn’t make for good skin care. Whether the fragrance in the product is natural or synthetic, it is almost always a problem for skin.

Jar Packaging

But did you know jar packaging is the wrong choice because it cannot keep most state-of-the-art anti-aging ingredients stable once opened? It’s true!

Skin Care Results & Expectati

When itons comes to your skin-care routine, it’s easy to get frustrated or confused when you’re surrounded by products that don’t seem to work.

Given the variables, it’s easy to see why women are often confused and frustrated.

Tomato

This humble everyday vegetable is one of the most effective skin care home remedies. Being from the citrus family, it lightens tan, blemishes, dark spots and helps achieve an even skin tone.

Lemon

Going by the above 2 points you may think that lemon isn’t a great skin remedy but that’s not entirely true. To skin types that don’t react adversely to it, lemon works wonders! It’s not only refreshing but also has anti-microbial properties in addition to acting as a bleaching agent.

Aloe Vera

How can I leave out this wonderful herb while writing on summer skin care tips! There is hardly any sunburn remedy that does not use aloe vera. Mix some aloe vera gel with cucumber juice, honey and curd. See the redness and sunburn effect go away in a jiffy.
