Aging is a natural process. But the rate at which we age that depends mostly on our lifestyle and choices we make in day-to-day life. There’s no fountain of youth or magical pill to stop aging, but maintaining healthy lifestyle and making good choices will slow down your aging process and make you look younger for long period of time. Skincare is an important part of maintaining that youthful charm, but gets neglected. However, the majority of skin conditions, from acne to psoriasis, can be dug down to internal health. Our skin tends to communicate with us what’s happening inside our body. Because, healthy, wrinkle and lines free skin is the outcome of taking care of your internal body parts. Go through following tips to have vibrant skin:
Your skin turns exceedingly red
- Sometimes, your skin appears to be shade of red that often indicates the makeup you use has ingredients which turn out to be harsh for your skin. The chemicals such as sulfates or benzoyl peroxide found in cleansers are real culprits, try to be cautious of such list of ingredients and switch to one that’s free of such chemicals. To get rid of residual flushing or to calm them down, apply straight aloe or calamine lotion, once your skin adjusts to the new cleanser.
Your dry skin goes excess dry
- Are you using any creamy form of cleanser? Instead of getting better, the skin condition worsens; this is called “double” drying issue. The problem lies with some creamy cleansers; they’re not exfoliating, nor do they contain natural oils which help replenishing dry skin with lipids. Move to the cleanser that contains more oil or add pre-wash, containing Argan, Lipid or Nut oil.
Your skin breakout worsens after treatment
- If you’ve started a typical course of acne treatment and your skin deteriorates, the active ingredient in your makeup may be too active for now. At times, when you’ve never used makeup with glycolic acid, vitamin A or vitamin C and instantly use them, the skin in most cases needs to acclimate to the extra strength. Once it cleanses the skin, this soothes the skin. It’s advised to start using the active product less in the beginning and gradually applies more, allowing your skin to adjust smoothly.
Your oily skin turns excess dry
- Though it may sound like an oxymoron, but the oily skin that flakes and feels tight and dry is relatively common occurrence. People with oily skin go for cleansers and toners that are overstraining to the skin. It destabilizes acid mantle to become unbalanced and allows the body to produce more to balance things out. Need to go for cleansers that are less drying, particularly with glycolic acid to exfoliate the skin and remove the oil.
Your skin stings or itches.
- If your normal skin starts stinging, itching or appear spotty, it could be the effect of “overexfoliation”. There are so many exfoliation products, used almost daily. Stripping of the acid mantle means, you remove the protective layer of the skin, making your skin more sensitive to photosensitization. Use makeup that are gentler to the skin, and follow the directions religiously—if it prescribes for once a week, then use once a week and will bring the best results.
Your skin shows tiny bumps
- Do you find tiny whitish bumps on the surface of your skin? This clear-cut indication that you’ve an allergic reaction. These bumps are very small and don’t resemble whiteheads and may have been accompanied by redness. Don’t use products which have so many chemicals. Look for products that have natural ingredients and are fragrance-free. While you’re switching over to new ones, apply ingredients which have calming effect on the skin.
You have new freckles
- Newly minted dark spots come up for hyperpigmentation, occurring because of sun damage, and the issue could be your sunscreen. People generally underrate the use of sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Shift to a makeup formula that incorporates both the rays. To treat brown spots during switching from one product to another, apply products with higher concentrations of peptides or kojic acid ingredients.
