Here you have 7 tips on how to get better skin. Discover how to improve the skin on your face including puffy eyes and acne. Over the counter and at home skin care remedies will help you improve minor skin issues without the need of consulting a dermatologist.

1. Acne – The first thing when one is suffering from acne is to keep the skin clean all the time. Don’t allow your fingers to touch your face too often to avoid carrying germs to the face. To get rid of all the grease on your face use a washcloth impregnated in soapy water and make sure you replace it with new ones very often to prevent it from accumulating germs as well as bacteria.

2. Oily Skin – Is oily skin your problem? If so, refrain from using harsh alcohol based toners and other products that will cause the body to produce even more oil. Try using an oil free skin care product with moisturizing properties that will keep the skin moisturized and oil free.

3- Pigmentation – If you are one of those who think that having a tan is healthy you couldn’t be more wrong. Although the sun has its benefits, sunbathing without the right protection is very bad news for the skin.

Sunbathing can make the skin age prematurely and cause other skin problems like pigmentation, and in the worst case scenario, even skin cancer. Protecting the skin from UV rays needs to be a priority, so wear sun block everyday, and use a good pair of sunglasses as well as a wide brimmed-hat.

4 – Face Wrinkles – If you want to diminish fine lines and wrinkles try skin needling. This skin care treatment is said to improve the production of collagen as well as elastin by rolling micro-needles to puncture the skin’s surface. It will also help to absorb the ingredients contained on skin care products faster.

5. Neck Wrinkles – Prevent or diminish neck wrinkles by making a mixture with few spoons of natural yogurt, a spoon of honey and a bit of cream. Leave it on the neck for around 10 minutes and rinse it off with warm water. Don’t forget to moisturize this area with your usual cream.

6. Eye Wrinkles – If you want to prevent or diminish eye wrinkles a popular remedy is to apply Vaseline under the eyes before you take a shower. The theory is that the steam will open up the pores to absorb the product better and keep the area moisturized. Alternatively you could apply the Vaseline and leave overnight to deeply moisturize this area.

7. Puffy Eyes – A good remedy to try if you have puffy or swollen eyes is to soak a pair of cottons in skimmed milk and place over the eyes for at least ten minutes. Using skimmed milk is not a whim, is just that using whole milk might leave a greasy residue over the area.

If you are after a healthy complexion you can achieve just that without spending much cash on skin care and beauty products. Make use of many popular skin care remedies that you can use from your home to improve the appearance of your skin and keep your bank balance in the process



7 Tips for Younger Skin and a Glowing Complexion

If by now you haven’t realized that your skin must be taken care by drinking water, staying out of the sun, eating healthy, exercising more and avoiding harmful habits such as smoking then you’d better start now, because your skin won’t remain radiant and unwrinkled forever if you don’t take care of it.

Tips for Younger Glowing Skin
Tips to Get Glowing and Younger Skin

Today we’re going to mention some tips that you might find useful to delay aging skin and achieve a glowing complexion. With aging, skin progressively loses it’s capacity to regenerate, and this makes it more susceptible to wrinkles and damage.

Below are 7 younger skin tips to prevent this:

1. Chill out! – Stress can lead to an increase of hormone production and this can lead to flaky and skin inflammation. Taking ten minutes to put on a facial mask, turning your cellphone off after a certain time, every little detail helps. Besides, living a less stressful life is helpful in so many ways to your health and overall well-being!

2. Choose your exercises – While working out is vital to keep healthier and younger, some are better than others. In the skin care exercise rankings, running isn’t such a healthy choice. The repetitive high impacts might lead to sagging since it can weaken collagen, better stick to the elliptical or cycling machine. Let me just mention that while I’d recommend other exercises above running or jumping, any exercise is better than none exercise, do what you love as long as you get that body moving.

There are some specific yoga moves that can bring a healthy glow to the skin. If you get into the habit of practising the Sun Salutations, the Downward Facing Dog and the Child’s Pose you will boost circulation and give your skin a boost of oxygen, leading to that lovely facial glow. Yoga also helps to reduce inflammation and stress that leads to skin aging.

3. Broke doesn’t mean ugly skin – There are so much ways to take care of your skin and they’re not all based on expensive products, here are some of homemade remedies for glowing skin:

  • Cool showers and ice cubes close pores, preventing bacteria and harmful substances to enter your skin.
  • Green tea ice cubes to diminish puffy eyes.
  • Facial masks made with strawberries, honey or avocado to prevent wrinkles.
  • Olive oil to smooth and moisturize the skin.
  • Oats and sugar to exfoliate the skin.

There are so many inexpensive ways to take to get younger glowing skin, get creative but do your research.

4. Sleep on your back – Sleeping on your back is a way to prevent sleep wrinkles. When your face is stuck to the pillow, your face compresses, leading to those fine lines we hate so much. Besides, sleeping in your back has many benefits for your skin and overall health, such as clearer, firmer skin and better back alignment.

5. Pimples, blackheads and white heads – Don’t squeeze them. I know it’s so tempting to just pop that horrible bump, but squeezing it might push the infection into deeper layers in your skin and make matters worse. That little yet annoying bump is actually protecting your skin from all the bacteria and other harmful things it contains, so when you pop it you free them and they may fall into other pores, leading to more of them! In addition, popping that zit might lead to scarring or scabs, and those are harder to cover up.

6. Hygiene – Such a simple idea, but you’re probably making a mistake or two when it comes to keeping your skin away from bacteria and other residues. Have you changed your pillowcase this week? Do you wash your bed cloth often? Is your makeup brush clean? Small stuff like this damages your skin more than you can imagine, pay attention to detail.

7. Vitamins, yes or not?– One of the beauties of your skin is that it has the amazing capacity to carefully select what enters (or doesn’t enter) your body, wouldn’t it be weird if you could get drunk by touching wine? Most vitamins and minerals are absorbed in such tiny quantities that they basically don’t make a difference, so you might as well buy the cheapest product with no additives and save yourself a buck.

If you want to get younger glowing skin researching your products before buying them is a wise thing to do.
