skincare tips during pregnancy

When a woman is pregnant, her body goes through so many different hormonal changes, which, of course, have quite the effect on the skin. While every woman reacts differently to these changes, here are some skin care tips to ensure that you are able to maintain your beautiful glow, all the way through your pregnancy. Drink Plenty of Water  While  drinking water  is essential even if you are not pregnant, it becomes even more important if you are. Water really helps to filter and clear away all of the toxins from within your body, while maintaining the correct amount of amniotic fluid. Try to drink at least two liters of water a day, as this is the optimum amount for both you and your baby. Pay Attention to Ingredients  Unless you purchase skincare products that are completely natural and organic, then it is likely that your standard skincare products contain ingredients that could be harmful to your baby. With everything from your shampoo and shower gel to your moisturizer and eye cream, you need to pay extra attention to the ingredients that these formulas contain, doing a bit of research into each one to ensure that they are safe for…

Treatment options for acne rosacea

Rosacea is a skin condition that is often referred to as acne rosacea, as it can look quite similar to  acne. However, the condition actually differs from acne quite significantly, and you need to take this into account when seeking out treatment options. Avoiding Sunlight  Exposure to the sun has been linked to an increase in rosacea symptoms, meaning that you are best avoiding direct sunlight as much as you can.

Identifying Your Triggers  There are a number of different rosacea triggers out there, and everybody’s skin will react in its own way to each trigger. The best way to prevent your symptoms from flaring up is by identifying your own rosacea triggers, whether this may be spicy food, extreme temperatures or stress. Once you have pinpointed these, you can then try your best to avoid them as much as possible. Medication  Those who suffer from severe cases of rosacea may often need to turn to medication to help control the symptoms. These usually tend to be a…

Breaking up dark spots and evening out skin tone

Nobody wants their complexion to feature dark spots with an uneven skin tone, but everything from UV exposure to hormone fluctuations can lead to this. In order to clear this problem and achieve the flawless complexion you have always desired, here are a few tips to follow. Retinoids  Retinoids, which are a derivative of vitamin A, are fantastic for boosting cell turnover, resulting in fresher and brighter skin. They are also effective at lightening dark spots, although it will take at least six months of regular use for these to clear completely. Retinoids are one of the most powerful skincare ingredients out there, but they can also cause skin irritation and reactions, so be sure to only use a pea-sized amount on your face, a couple of times a week to start with. Once your skin is able to tolerate the ingredients, you can gradually increase this amount to as much as you need. Antioxidants Antioxidants are extremely effective at fading dark spots while brightening the skin at the same time, and are also natural, meaning that they are safe to be used on just about every  skin type. If you are only picking one antioxidant to use, let that…

The gold trend in skincare

Although gold-infused skin care products may seem slightly extravagant to some at first, there is no denying the increasing amount of research that points to the benefits that gold can have on the skin. From improving elasticity to boosting circulation, it would seem as though the gold skincare trend is not going to be dying down anytime soon. Ancient Roots  The trend of using gold for skincare is one that has ancient roots and can be traced all the way back to the Ancient Egyptians when Cleopatra used to use a gold mask at night to brighten her complexion. Gold was also used for many skin care purposes in Ancient Rome, as well as in Ancient Chinese medicine. Each of these cultures believed in the healing properties that gold could have, and used the ingredient in multiple ways. A Boost to Circulation  One of the key benefits to using gold-infused skincare products is  the huge boost that it will give to your circulation. Since gold contains ions that are fantastic at conducting heat, it is able to draw heat to the surface of the skin when it is applied, stimulating the circulation and nourishing the overall complexion. By doing this,…

Breaking up dark spots and evening out skin tone

A healthy, radiant complexion can often seem impossible to obtain, but this really does not need to be the case. From exfoliation to nutrition, here are a few tips to help you to achieve the skin of your dreams. Exfoliation  Exfoliation is essential when it comes to a healthy complexion, and the key here is to be consistent when it comes to the amount that you exfoliate. Exfoliation sloughs away the dead skin cells that settle on the surface of the skin, which hugely contributes to a rough and dull complexion. This allows the fresh, young skin cells beneath to be revealed while speeding up cell turnover, which is the rate at which new skin cells are created. There are a number of different methods of exfoliation, each with its own set of advantages, so even if one method has not worked for you, try researching the others to find what works best for your skin. Brighten Up  While exfoliation is great for removing dead skin cells, the fresh skin cells underneath can also often do with a bit of a boost. There are many ingredients that can help with brightening the skin, but vitamin C is one of the best, as…

How To Get Rid Of Back Acne Naturally

Acne can form just about anywhere on the body, apart from the hands and the feet, as these two areas do not have any sebaceous glands, which are the glands that are responsible for oil production. When it comes to back acne, also referred to as bacne, this is something that may keep reoccurring throughout life, but there are a number of ways in which you can effectively deal with it to keep it under control. A Bacne Body Wash  The majority of products that contain bacne-fighting ingredients tend to come in the form of body washes and scrubs, as it is much harder to reach over and apply spot treatments to your back. When it comes to key ingredients, keep an eye out for benzoyl peroxide, or salicylic acid, and leave these cleansers on for a few minutes before washing them off, as this will give them enough time to work their magic. Keep Those Pores Unclogged  Clogged pores will quickly lead to bacne, which is why it is important to keep your pores unclogged as much as possible, as prevention is always the best option. This means opting for lighter lotions on your back rather than thick creams, and…

Smooth skin for summer

When it comes to smooth skin and hair removal, shaving and waxing are usually the two most popular choices. However, there are actually a number of other options out there, from electrolysis to laser hair removal, all of which have their own set of advantages. Laser Hair Removal  Laser hair removal involves the use of laser light to destroy hair roots, and it tends to be a permanent method for many people. Since the laser is designed to detect pigment, this hair removal technique works best on those who have darker hairs with lighter skin, as it is not that effective on blonde hairs, and can often burn darker skin. While there are at-home options available, most people tend to have laser hair removal carried out professionally, which takes about six to twelve sessions to complete. Electrolysis Electrolysis is another permanent method of hair removal, and, unlike laser hair removal, you would only need around four to six sessions of this, although the exact number does depend on everything from hair density to hormones. This technique makes use of a tiny needle that sends a shortwave radio frequency to each hair follicle and therefore destroys them. This is an effective method that works…

Healing scars on your face and body

When the skin experiences an injury, scars are usually inevitable aftermath. For those with younger skin, scars tend to fade quite quickly, but those with more mature skin may end up with severe scars that last for years unless you give one of these healing methods a try. Vitamin C Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that is a natural healer, especially when it comes to damaged skin and scars. By strengthening the immune system, vitamin C speeds up the healing process, while also restoring collagen levels in the skin, resulting in a flatter and smoother complexion. Vitamin C can be used both orally and topically, and this would be advised if you are seeking out the very best results. Aloe Vera  Aloe vera has been used for centuries when it comes to healing the skin, as it not only soothes it but also helps to regenerate any damaged tissue. There are multiple studies that point to how effective aloe vera is when it comes to healing wounds and scars, and has even been shown to be able to completely remove scars.

How to Save Your Skin from Premature Aging

While aging is inevitable, premature skin aging is something that you can definitely avoid. How? By following these tips… Understand the Importance of Cleansing If you are worried about skin aging, then, if you haven’t already done so, it will only be a matter of time before you end up investing in a plethora of different anti-aging products. This is all well and good, but none of those products will make much of a difference unless you cleanse your face before applying them. From dead skin cells and dirt to sebum and other impurities, all of these unwanted particles quickly build up on the surface of your skin, blocking up your pores. As you can imagine, applying skin care products over the top of this will mean that those products are unable to properly penetrate your skin, since there are so many things in their way. While cleansing is key to keeping your skin youthful, you do also need to make sure that you are using the right cleanser. Go for something quite mild and gentle, and stay away from any harsh foaming cleansers. Why? Because while they may create quite a satisfying lather, they also often strip away all of…

How To Make A 3 Ingredient Anti-Aging Eye Cream In 1 Minute

Dr.Nina Roos says that our skin is a window into what’s going on elsewhere in the body, so it would be one of the first places we will notice if there is off in terms of our overall health. The skin around the eyes is highly delicate since it is five times thinner than the rest of the face.  This makes the area under the eyes prone to swelling and puffiness, dark circles, dryness, and itchiness. These symptoms can be caused by numerous factors, both external and internal. Genetics is very important for the health of our skin, similarly as our mode habits, that contribute to its look and would possibly cause varied skin problems. Stress, smoking, and fatigue are a big no-no, as they are among the main causes of the tired-looking under-eye area, and sun-related damage makes the skin prone to dryness and dehydration. Yet, most commercial eye creams are very expensive, rich in fillers and chemicals that might lead to numerous adverse effects, and often fail to deliver the desired effects. Therefore, we suggest the following simple 3-ingredient eye cream that will protect the delicate skin around the eyes and prevent premature aging and wrinkles: Ingredients: 2 vitamin…
