If you have a normal skin type with no significant problems, that doesn’t mean you can ignore taking care of it. To keep your skin looking radiant, it helps to be vigilant in making sure it stays that way. So, love your skin all the time!
You may be fortunate to look in the mirror and see no signs of oiliness or dryness. Even though you may not be too concerned about any skin problems now, it doesn’t mean that problems can’t arise later.
So, don’t rest on your genetically-gifted laurels.
You may also be young enough, or have been careful enough, to see little sign of scaling, brown spots from either too much sun and/or aging, uneven skin tone and other signs of a downturn in the health of your skin, but still treat it with care.
The best skin care advice for minimizing skin problems is preventative action, rather than trying to undo damage already done.
A good skin care regimen is just as important for normal skin as for those skin types that present problems. You want your skin to be its healthy and attractive best every day and to minimize the ongoing effects of age, sun damage and environmental damage.
Facial Products to Consider
When selecting products to keep your normal skin type looking and feeling great, find a gentle cleanser and toner, an exfoliant, an appropriate SPF sunscreen and an indulgent-feeling moisturizer with skin-replenishing ingredients, that will soothe and soften the skin.
Normal skin can sometimes have fleeting issues with dryness or oiliness. Therefore, depending on your skin’s current condition, choose products to suit.
Your hormones, environment and even stress levels may mean differences throughout the month. Don’t exacerbate a situation by lazily using what you always have. Use what is appropriate for the skin type being expressed at that time.
Use a light moisturizer under your makeup during daylight hours and a creamier, richer one at night after you cleanse your skin.
Since your skin is normal you do have more options than other skin types.
Remember to choose products that make your skin feel good based on your own preferences. You may enjoy the way a creamy moisturizing product feels, or you may prefer a light non-greasy moisturizer, that’s so light, you don’t even know it’s there.
Keeping your skin healthy is one sure way to slow the signs of aging and keep it looking younger, longer. Your overall skin health comes from within, so it’s imperative that you drink adequate water and adhere to a diet plan that keeps you whole body healthy, which will show in your skin.
Take Care with Facial Scrubs
Never use harshly abrasive techniques on your skin such as hard, scratchy scrubs or bristled brushes. They will not only damage your skin, but could create the same skin issues you’re trying to avoid.
Choose a natural scrub with soft beads, that polish the skin rather than scratch.
Taking care of your skin daily will ensure that it stays healthy and in good condition for years to come!
