Who doesn’t like fresh glowing skin? You can tell healthy glowing skin when it is, clean, clear and free of blemishes. Healthy skin has its own natural glow, and we can achieve this easily when we give ourselves some extra TLC.
Your first step towards glowing skin is having clean skin. Your skin is made up of many layers, the pores on these layers can become blocked which will result in blemishes or pigmentation and even premature ageing. It is a good idea to steam your skin about once a week. This will unblock your pores, allow your skin to breathe, and rid your skin of the dirt found in the deeper layers. Facial saunas are available from most chemists, but it is just as easy to do over a bowl with boiling water and a towel (do be careful.) You should do this for about 5 to 10 minutes.
If you have combinational/normal skin a few drops of rosemary or lavender extract within the facial sauna water will be perfect. This works as a conditioner for ordinary skin and will help unblock your pores.
If you have oily/greasy skin, a few drops of lemon and peppermint can be used within your facial sauna. This works wonders for replenishing and cleansing the skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
If you have dry/itchy skin a few drops of chamomile will be perfect.
Steaming your face no more than once a week will help you achieve that healthy glowing skin. After a facial sauna, an exfoliating cleanser should then be applied to scrub away particles and dead skin cells. Close the pores of your skin with the splash of cold water, this will give your skin a healthy glow. You can then apply a moisturiser.
Another great tip for great glowing skin is giving your skin therapeutic massages after you have washed it. You should use light and round motions, do this for about a minute. Always be sure to apply cream to your skin before you go to bed. The next morning you should follow this up by washing your face once again. And always apply face-cream before you apply your makeup. There are different types for every skin type, oily and dry, medium.
If you follow this routine your face will show it. Hydrating your skin properly is important so you need to drink enough water throughout the day. Sleeping enough also keeps your skin healthy. Eating a nutritious diet and avoiding excessive amounts of unhealthy processed food is also vital. Eat enough wholesome foods, like vegetables and fruits.
There you have it quick and easy tips for fresh glowing skin. Enjoy!
