In today's world of social media and fad trends, it is hard to tell what's true, and what's another made-up craze. Camellia Alise is here to give you the rundown on all things skincare!
1. What Your Acne is Telling You
The location of a breakout on your face can indicate underlying health issues. Stress, unwashed bedding, digestion problems, and hormonal changes all contribute to the occurrence and intensity of ance. You may be able to determine what is causing your breakouts by knowing what areas are affected by different physical and environmental changes in your life.
2. Eliminating Dark Under-Eye Circles
You may have seen people at a spa in a movie putting cucumbers over their eyes while getting pampered. Well, this isn't just a Hollywood joke! Cucumbers are great to help eliminate under-eye circles because they are 98% water and provide hydration to the skin. Keeping a cucumber-based product on your eye for at least 20 minutes will ensure the moisture is absorbed and coolness has time to decrease inflammation. Additionally, you can massage your under-eye with a daily moisturizer to help reduce the presence of a dark under-eye.
3. Basics of a Skincare Routine
A skincare routine does not have to be complicated with a thousand steps. All you need are a facial wash, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen to keep your skin protected and healthy. Many moisturizers have UV protection in them already, allowing you to only have a three-step process instead of four.
4. Frequency of Exfoliation
Exfoliation is important to get rid of dead skin and even expose and prevent other issues, such as ingrown hair. Overusing a scrub glove or constant exfoliation, however, can open your skin up for irritation by removing too many layers of skin. They are great to use in moderation, and once or twice a week is ideal. Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing!
5. Assisting Natural Skin Renewal
According to Derm Specialists, skin renewal occurs naturally every 28 days. It does this by shedding dead skin cells and replacing them with new ones. While your skin will do this on its own, you need to protect yourself through a consistent skincare program to keep the process going!
