25 Skincare Tips including Makeup Tip

Tip 1: Facial Blemishes–Getting Rid of Blackheads

 Facial blemishes like blackheads are caused by a mixture of oil, dead cells and bacteria that often block enlarged pores and would appear as dark spots on the face. Use a liquid spot-touch concealer that is available in a tube with its own applicator to cover up the blackheads. Dot the area with the concealer and use your fingers to blend it into your skin.  Afterwards, dust the area lightly with powder to reduce shine.

 Tip 2: Facial Blemishes–Hands Off Acne Please!

 Facial blemishes like cystic acne are painful, hard bumps that form when a pimple nestles underneath your skin. This type of ‘erupting’ blemishes are best left alone, avoiding any attempt to conceal them. Apply an astringent to keep it clean and avoid touching it further until it dries out naturally. For dry cystic acne, put on a small amount of heavy concealer with the tip of a cotton bud or a small acrylic tipped brush.

 Tip 3: Skin Care Regime–Cleanse Gently

 Tips provide additional information that can help you take better care of your skin. Use lukewarm to splash your face before gently washing your face with a pea size amount of a gentle, soap free cleanser. It is best to use your fingers for a gentler washing. Massage the cleanser on lightly with circular strokes into your skin. Wash off the cleanser with lukewarm water and dry with a clean towel. Never rub the towel on your skin, just pat your skin dry.

 Tip 4: Makeup – Toner Basics

 When you are going out or simply want to put some makeup on your face, it is best to apply a toner after gently cleansing your face. The best way to apply toner on your face is by using a tissue. Tissue paper absorbs less of the toner compared to cotton. This regulates the amount of toner you apply on your skin. Wipe the tissue lightly on your face and let it dry before applying moisturizer.

 Tip 5: Take Full Advantage of Moisturizers

 Tips help you take better care of your skin. There are many benefits to using a moisturizer. A nickel-sized amount of moisturizer is enough to moisturize your neck and your face.

Try using a moisturizer with a sun protection formula for added benefits.

When choosing the face oil to be used, choose one that contains sesame, olive oil, or sweet almond oil.

 Tip 18: Acne Care and Facial Scrubs

 Anybody would be annoyed with a sudden breakout of acne. When this occurs, one’s normal acne care reaction is simply to scrub the face clean because, of course, acne is mostly the result of dirty and clogged pores. However, one of the mistakes you can do is actually use a harsh facial scrub. When you have acne, your skin is sensitive and using a harsh facial scrub will only further scratch your face and cause scars.

Tip 19: Facial Rejuvenation – Go for a Massage

You’ve heard about massages to soothe body aches and pains so why not submit yourself to a massage for facial rejuvenation?

Then wrap tissue around your index fingers and lightly squeeze out the pore until the plug is released. Don’t squeeze too hard so as not to leave a mark on you face.

 Tip 21: Men’s Skin Care – Oily Skin

 If you think that only women need a ‘beauty product’ remedy for that oily skin, you’re quite behind in the game. Men’s skin care products are everywhere nowadays so there is really no need for further proof that men DO need skincare products as well. Men have about 15% oilier skin (and definitely larger pores) than women. The bottom line? Men get dirtier, easier. So cleanse your face daily with a good cleanser. This will keep your pores clear and healthy.

 Tip 22: Beauty Essential – Eye Creams

 Did you know that skin around the eyes is very delicate? Further there are no oil or sweat glands to condition that part of your face so, indeed, wrinkles do tend to appear in this area. Well, don’t take this sitting down. After all, the eyes are the first thing that one notices in a person’s face right. So what do you need? Eye creams. A good quality eye cream is a great anti-aging product to have by the bedside. Use a gentle moisturizing eye cream. Don’t rub it in; always use light patting motions when applying the cream.

 Tip 123: Skin Care – Prevention is better than Cure

 To combat the aging process, prevention is definitely better than cure so start early and don’t take your ‘young skin’ for granted. Practice good skin care habits like using a good cleanser to clean your skin every day. Deep cleansing is extremely important to keep pores clear and your skin healthy.

Avoid harsh cleansing products. As much as possible, opt for chemical-free beauty products. After cleansing, never forget to moisturize. This will replenish the natural oils that were removed the cleansing process.

 Tip 124: Moisturizers – More than Once a Day

 It is important to moisturize daily. If you do not take care of your skin and apply moisturizers on a regular basis while it is still soft and supple (read: while you are still young), then you will just find it hard to remedy dry and parched skin later on. The secret to proper moisturization is frequency of application. Ensure that you moisturize every morning and at night just before you go to bed. To avoid that greasy, icky feeling, use a light moisturizer during the day and revert to a richer moisturizer at night.

 Tip 25: Skin Care – Daily Cleansing

 Proper skin care includes a DAILY cleansing routine. There really is no work around when it comes to ensuring that one has clear, youthful looking skin. When it comes to makeup, always wash your face before you apply them (to ensure no dirt is ‘locked in’) and afterwards (to ensure that no makeup seeps into your pores and clogs them during the night). Always wash with a mild cleanser every morning and in the evening just before you sleep. Follow this with a toner that is recommended for your specific skin type.
