SKIN CARE TIPS FOR DRY AND OILY SKIN / ANY SKIN TYPE
 

  1. Drink more water - Exercise increases blood flow, directing oxygen to the working cells in your body – including your skin and liver - which neutralises toxins.
  2. Detox your lifestyle - Nurture yourself daily and replace any toxic products from your lifestyle with pure ingredients. If you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it or put it anywhere on your body
  3. Try facial oil - If your skin is very flaky or peeling, try a face oil under your moisturizer―it will smooth out your skin.
  4. Know your skin type - Products formulated for your skin type offer the best chance of giving you the results you want.
  5. Lotion Up - Daily moisturizing is the best defense against dry skin. Applying lotion right after you step out of the shower seals in the moisture that your skin has just absorbed.
  6. Don't scratch it! Avoid scrubs with scratchy grains. Look for exfoliators made with natural fruit enzymes.
  7. Shave smartly - Don't shave dry skin as it can irritate it. The best time to shave is after shower when the hair is softer and more pliable.
  8. Use medicated pads - Pads medicated with salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or other oil-cutting acid ingredients are another beauty routine option for some with oily skin.
  9. Apply light moisturizer - Many people with oily skin are afraid of moisture, but guess what? Your skin needs it. Use something light, like a serum to give your face the moisture it needs.
  10. Use Olie oil or Jojoba oil - Look for a cream or ointment that contains an oil such as olive oil or jojoba oil. Ointments and creams are more effective and less irritating than lotions.
  11. Take better care of your dry skin - Take shorter showers and baths, no more than once daily and use mild, gentle soaps or cleansers.
  12. Match skin care to skin type is important. - Take some time to develop the skin care routine that’s right for your skin type. If you are still unsure of how to care for your complexion, talk to a dermatologist about the products you are using and how they affect your skin.
  13. Go with a nongreasy, water-based moisturizer - Moisturizer with humectants such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin (ingredients designed to dry quickly while creating a moisture barrier on your skin).
  14. Use Lotion with SPF - Practice sun safety habits to prevent skin cancer. Use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher and with both UVA and UVB protection.
  15. Moisturise everyday - For acne on the body, gentle, mild cleansers can help. Moisturizing every day after showering to keep your skin well hydrated.
  16. Protect your sensitive skin in winter and summer - To protect your sensitive skin, your sunscreen should be rated SPF 30 or higher. They deflect the sun’s UV rays instead of absorbing them as chemical sunscreens do.
