Which Cream or Cleanser Should You Use?

Jack Brooks

The style-conscious woman is always in search of ways to improve her look or alter her appearance. Most of the techniques women should use to guarantee smooth skin as they age are preventive. Getting 7-10 hours of sleep a night can give your skin the natural glow and moisture balance it needs daily. Include plenty of water in your diet to help you get rid of toxins in the body that detract from the skin’s firmness and oxygen flow, so your skin tone looks even and moisturized.

The eye area is the most vulnerable part of your face, as it’s subject to blinking, rubbing and squinting on a regular basis. It is very important to pick the right eye cream for your particular needs. A good quality eye cream must be lightweight and glide on easily. Avoid the product if it cannot be “tapped on” easily. Eye creams can cost you a lot of money, so as you visit cosmetic counters, be sure to get samples before deciding on a specific brand.

From avocado facemasks to oatmeal scrubs, there are many natural treatments available.

Exfoliators scrub away the surface layer of skin, while facemasks nourish and treat the skin. Follow the directions on the packet before using either of these products.

Using a facial mask:

  1. Select a mask suitable for your skin type.


  3. After a complete cleaning and exfoliation, apply a moisturizing mask. It is only necessary to wash the face superficially before using a cleansing and purifying mask.


  5. Use a very mild exfoliating cream before applying an anti-aging mask on dry skin. Taking care to avoid lip and eye areas, lightly apply a thin layer of the mask with your fingers.


  7. Take care to apply a very thin layer of the mask, so that the skin does not suffer from over-application.

  9. Take off mask with a tissue or moist cotton pad.
If you’re struggling with a skin condition, for example, Rosacea, use serious sun protection.

Limit sun contact, wear hats, and use broad-spectrum sunscreens with SPF15 or higher.

It also is a good idea to keep away from extreme hot and cold temperatures.

Self-treatment with over-the-counter medicines is not recommended; it’s always best to check with a dermatologist to develop a treatment routine specific to your individual situation.

The skin on your face is the most fragile on your body, owing to the exposure to the elements and environmental pollutants that it receives. In order to stay youthful, healthy and beautiful, your facial skin needs special care:

  • Clean your face gently.
  • Use toner in moderation.
  • Make eye cream a part of your regimen.
  • Moisturize generously.
  • Protect your face from unnecessary sun damage.

Our skin is very valuable-both for beauty and protection. It deserves as much “health attention” as our other organs!
