Basic Beauty Tips

Updated on December 3, 2012

What's your basic anti aging skin care regimen?

With all the newest and most advanced anti aging skin care products being paraded in the market today one can't be too sure with the kind of chemicals used for making them. Some of the chemical ingredients are either comedogenic (plugging skin pores) or carcinogenic (cancer causing). This is the reason why it's best to check the ingredient list before buying any product on the shelf.

So what's a girl to do? As much as possible use moisturizers, toners, cleansers, washes, scrubs, and makeup with natural ingredients. It is, however, unavoidable for cosmetic manufacturers to use preservatives in their products for longer lasting shelf life. But these preservatives are minimal in amount as compared to the majority of ingredients mixed in for producing the desired effects promised.

Here are some tips on the basic anti aging skin care products a girl must have in her beauty kit:

1. Moisturizer - Our bodies are mostly made up of water. Our skin expends moisture more frequently and in greater amounts than any organ in our body. That is why we must rehydrate our skin by using moisturizers. Make sure you use a moisturizing lotion or, if your prefer, body oil to seal in some of that water inside.

2. Cleansers - There are many skin cleansers to choose from, but select wisely based on your skin type and the sensitivity of your skin. Oily skin needs astringents and oil-reducing facial scrub to get rid of extra sebum, and a follow up use of facial toners to decrease pore size. Sensitive skin must use mild cleansers with milk to avoid skin irritation and maintain the pH balance of skin.

3. Anti Aging Skin Care Products - Delaying time's effects on one's skin is next to improbable but not impossible. There are many highly advanced products in the market now that promise younger looking skin in a matter of weeks of use. Be warned, however, that what these products offer is a small reprieve. Time and nature will have their way and we will still look old no matter what we do. Just be careful in choosing the brands you use. There are many untrustworthy brands out there that can hurt your skin more than help you.

4. Diet, vitamins, herbs and exercise - These last group are more reliable when it comes to maintaining a healthier and younger looking appearance. Taking care of our bodies and making sure we follow our doctor's advice will greatly help in preventing detoxifying our systems from the day-to-day stressors we are exposed to. Our environments, the foods we eat and our lifestyle can have negative effects on our health, which in turn will encourage faster aging.
