The Key To Flawless Skin | Live In Peace
Ladies you can be natural and get a great looking glow!!!! below are some simple tips for creating the gentlest beauty regimen ever!
- Avoid heavy Duty Cleanser !
According to Jeannette Graf, MD, assistant professor of dermatology at New York University Medical Center says Unlike your pots and pans, “your skin needn’t be scrubbed or squeaky to be clean,” Ladies Just do it But don’t over do it. Mild, nondetergent cleansers—milks, gels, foams, or cloths—are your best bet. Be sure to read the ingredient labels of products to see if they contain gentle, plant-derived surfactants (the prefix coco- equals coconut, for example; gluco- equals fruit sugars). “The natural source is often hinted at in the name,” says Jim Hammer, a cosmetic chemist with and product-development manager at Pharmasol Corp.
- Say No to the Toner!!!
Originally the Toner was invented to restore the natural pH of skin after it had been washed with an alkaline-detergent soap. “If you’re using a pH-balanced cleanser, there’s no need for toner,” Graf says. “It’ll only dry your skin.” Toners aren’t need if your using the correct cleansing wash, use products that are good with toning and cleansing. That way you are net over doing it with to many products
- Be sure to use products that are PH- balanced !!!
This means their pH is in sync with skin, so “they gently remove an oily substance secreted by the skin and makeup without stripping natural oils,” Graf says. Look for the words “pH-balanced” on cleansers that contain glycolic or lactic acids and on exfoliators, she adds, because some have a low pH, which can cause dryness.
- Ladies No product with Fragrance that aren’t natural on the Face !!!
Fragrance is the most common cause of skin-care-related allergic reactions. If you have sensitive skin, be sure to choose products that are labeled “fragrance-free.” The ones that are marked “unscented” typically contain small amounts of fragrance that come from natural herbs plants and vitamins to help mask the odors of active ingredients.
- Use Multitasking Moisturizers!!!
Use a day cream/ lotion that juggles two jobs—hydration and protection. Pick one that has plant-based moisturizers (natural oils, butters, and essential fatty acids penetrate skin better than man-made emollients like petroleum, Graf explains) and antioxidants (those from natural sources may also contain bioflavonoids and other beneficial compounds not found in synthetic versions, Hammer says), plus nonirritating physical sunblocks, like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
