Our faces are the most exposed parts of our bodies. Before you even utter a word, the person standing opposite you will have already formed plenty of opinions on you based on your facial features. I am very aware of this in the business world. But the only thing that really matters is that you love the skin that you are in. When you feel beautiful, you look beautiful.
In saying that, sometimes it’s easier said than done. Almost everyone has elements of their skin that cause them grief. And for me this hits close to home. My skin has always given me a reason to feel self-conscious. I use to break out in my early twenties when I use to cheer for the Miami Dolphins and caused my confidence to be shaken. I used hundreds of products hoping that it would clear my skin. After many years trying to get my skin under control, I finally feel I can feel confident without any makeup and have found a routine that works for me.
Some common problems include oily, dry, blemished or scarred skin. Everybody’s skin is different, and there is no beauty routine that can apply to everyone.
However, I do think that there are certain things that everyone can do to boost the natural beauty of their skin and give it the best chance of remaining healthy and glowing. Here I will run through a few of these steps to take to ensure you boost your confidence by taking care of your skin.
Visit a skin specialist
Whether you have significant problems with your skin or not, there is much that can be gained from a visit to a skin specialist. As I mentioned above, each person’s skin is different, and it’s important to find out the right routine for yours. I would recommend contacting a specialist business, like your local medical spa, and asking what expert advice and services they can provide you. These professionals can give you a better insight into skin type, give you suggestions on how to care for your skin and offer you a range of skin services.
Treat your skin gently
Even if you have the most hard-wearing skin in the world, you should always treat it with a light touch. Exfoliating is necessary to remove dead skin cells that sit on the surface of your skin. However, that doesn’t mean you have to scrub it like you would a dirty frying pan. This will only cause your face to become irritated, red and, basically angry. When you are performing your beauty regime, always think: soft and gentle, soft and gentle.
Whenever you can, use skin products that have a large percentage of natural ingredients. Too natural can irritate sensitive skin, but there is a natural product out there for every skin type, it’s just a case of finding it. You skin specialist will be able to help with this. At the very least you should avoid cheap products that are loaded with harsh chemicals.
It is true; you can tell just by looking at someone’s skin that they eat an unhealthy diet. On the other hand, someone who eats plenty of natural and healthy ingredients looks beautiful and glowing. Health and beauty go hand in hand. You should consider your diet as a very significant part of your beauty routine. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, pulses and water should feature a lot in your diet. And make sure to drink plenty of water which has been one of the key ingredients to giving me glowing skin.
On a final note; it’s important not to let your skin problems hold you back. It’s amazing what a few changes to your beauty routine can have on the look and feel of your skin.
