How to Keep Facial Skin Beautiful and Healthy
As we age it becomes difficult to keep our bodies looking the way it did when we were in our twenties. Besides body weight and shape, the skin on the body seems to change, sag, and wrinkle. Although the journey to beautiful skin may seem long and arduous, it is not impossible. Here are some ideas, for men and women, to keep the skin on the face ageless.
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate
Exfoliating is very important in keeping the skin smooth and youthful. This can be done with any type of scrub and a loofah once a week. The scrub can be purchased at any beauty or health store, or a simple sugar mix can be used to do the job. Apply the scrub all over the face and then use the loofah to gently scrub the face. Rinse thoroughly after about 3 minutes of scrubbing. A fresh glow will appear on the skin.
A Blueberry Mask
After exfoliating give your skin a treat by applying a blueberry mask. Blueberries are excellent for the body when taken internally. It is high in antioxidants. According to whfoods.org, “Antioxidants are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA.” If blueberries are this good for the inside of the body, can you imagine what it could do for the outside? This is a safe and natural way to keep the skin soft and nourished with vitamin C, vitamin E, and antioxidants.
Applying sunscreen to the face is the next and final step to this regiment. Many people feel that sunscreen is oily and they do not like the feel of it on their face. Oily skin is a problem that I have endured for most of my life. One particular product that I find is extremely helpful to my skin is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 100. This can be applied right before putting on makeup; it is also important to spread it on the ears and the neck. Sunscreen works to protect the face and the skin remains damage free. Sunscreen should also be worn in the winter, because the sun is still powerful during that season and the skin still needs protection from ultraviolet rays.
Keeping the skin on the face healthy, soft, and glowing can take a little work. If done regularly the results that are obtained can last a lifetime.
