Post Exfoliating Tips

post exfoliatingExfoliating helps your skin get rid of the layer of grim and dirt that you’ve accumulated. It’s also a great way to remove dead skin cells from your body. If you have been trying to sort out your uneven skin tone due to recently getting a tan, exfoliating it off with some loofa is the best way to go.

Exfoliation has been praised to be an important part of one’s skin care regimen. Not surprising as our body tends to slow down on pushing off the layer of dead skin cells once we hit our late 20’s. Thus our body needs a little bit of help to get the impurities off of our skin. Exfoliation gives way to youthful skin but overdoing it can leave a serious damage. It’s a good practice to exfoliate your skin twice a week at max, never go beyond that. If you think exfoliating is the end of a skin care regimen, you’re doing it wrong. Exfoliating your skin of impurities is just the beginning. You will have to do a lot of things to keep your skin in good condition after exfoliating it.

Firstly, you’ll want to avoid over-exposing it to the sun. Your skin is still young thus it can be easy for it to tan however this means you can easily get sunburned.

Do not use abrasive materials on your skin right after exfoliating. As was mentioned before, it is quite sensitive and using harsh cloth or soap can leave it sore or even irritate it. Try to use gentler soap or rub slowly when you’re cleaning it, you don’t want to have scabs on your freshly cleansed skin.

Use moisturizer after cleansing. This helps promote supple skin while also keeping it glowing. Exfoliated skin can easily dry out thus you’ll want to use gentle moisturizers, or an aloe vera if you want to go all natural.

Why Should You Moisturize Even At Night

night moisturizerOur skin is very puckish during summer. It’s not surprising as the air is acrider and we have more heat to deal with throughout the day. Thankfully, some nights happen to be cooler than the others. When it comes to moisturizing, we tend to do it during the day. This is when our skin is being hit by the sun’s light and thus would be damaged in the long run. This is a bad skin care practice. We tend to think that our skin isn’t under any stress at night as we sleep. That’s a false sense of security we’ve lured ourselves to thinking since our skin is just as pressured at night as it is during the day.

Therefore, there are moisturizers created for evening use. Sometimes we have nights that are too dry that it can cause a lot of harm on our skin as we sleep. In fact, we have less control of our body as we sleep thus we have some skin lesions from scratching during our sleep and the like. Moisturizers and creams soothe our skin as we sleep. They provide a barrier of care to protect our skin from further harm.

It’s important to have moisturizers at night as it also completes a good skin care regimen. As we sleep, moisturizers provide the nourishment our skin needs as we dream. Since we still go through the same amount of stress at night, moisturizers cater to the needs of our skin. If you’re a little iffy about using moisturizers before bed, you can opt for more natural ones. It’s a good practice to use aloe vera or even some honey before bed. However, you may want to dilute these ingredients or you’ll end up with ants biting on your skin in the middle of the night.

Beach Head Accessories Ideal for Summer

While you may have been bunched up or had layers to wear for spring, summer has a different appeal to look forward to. One of the things to consider is how to appreciate the presence of the sun while it’s still around. This would mean trying to lessen the chances of shade. Despite that, it’s important to let your body cool off when you have the time.

If you’re hoping to bring your style with you to the beach, there’s a lot of hair ornaments or accessories that you can add to your getup. Normally, you’d want to employ the aid of a sunhat to keep yourself well cared while under the sun. It’s also a good choice if you have a bad set of acne as you don’t want the sun to further aggravate your inflamed skin. However, relying only on a sun hat is going to whittle down your clothing choices.

A head wrap can put some color to your dark hair. If you don’t want to look too plain, use a colorful headwrap to put some color to your attire. Most women use headwraps to keep their stray hair in check while not sacrificing the style. It’s a great way to put on a statement. You can also add some sunglasses to create a posh look. Sunglasses make great protective gear against the sun’s harsh rays. Always opt for the specs that have UV protection.

Another choice would be a simple pair of sunglasses on your hair. This may not work well for those with shorter locks as your sunglasses can slip off easily. A headband may do the trick but having a pair of sunglasses on your head does send a statement.
