If you have mild to moderate acne, here are the tips and techniques that can help improve the look and condition of your skin.

If you are prone to developing acne, you should look for skin care products that are made to deal with acne.

The mineral zinc, and vitamins A, C, and E, and B-complex vitamins like vitamin B6 are often used to support acne treatment, as these vitamins are very important for the health of your skin. Eating foods that are rich in sulphur may also be helpful as sulphur helps to cure acne. Garlic and onions both contain a good supply of sulphur.

Acne Skin Care: The Cover Up

No matter how well you care for your acne prone skin, there will still be times when stress, climate changes, or pollution cause you to breakout with unsightly blemishes. When this happens, you can reduce the appearance by concealing the irritated skin with make up. However, special care is necessary when choosing cover up products and techniques to avoid calling more attention to the area.

 

Here's the best way to conceal acne:

  1. Wash and moisturize your face with a gentle facial cleanser. Start with a clean and fresh slate before applying any cosmetic products.
  2. Look for a natural cover up product that has a high level of pigment. The more pigment the product has, the less of it you can put on while still getting good coverage. And do a swatch test with the product to ensure that it matches your skin tone exactly. Take a drop of the product and rub it on your skin. It should match your skin tone but you should not be able to see your skin underneath. This will provide the right amount of coverage to conceal a blemish.
  3. Apply concealer in natural light. It is very important for your concealer to blend seamlessly with your face.

Serious Skin Care: Beyond the Basics of Soap

 

Skin care means different things to different people. Some consider merely washing their face on a daily basis to be a good skin care routine. Others would not leave the house without cleansing, toning, moisturizing, applying sun block, and concealing blemishes. For those of you who are ready to move beyond the basics of soap, this article is for you. Read on to learn more about serious skin care, serious skin care products, and what you can do to solve serious skin care dilemmas.

 

Serious Skin Care Routines

Serious skin care doesn’t mean that you have to spend endless hours in the bathroom. It means taking the time to look at your skin and what products and techniques can keep it looking and feeling great.

 

Here’s a serious skin care routine that can be completed in minutes:

  1. Clean Up: Soap may be great for the rest of your body, but many dermatologists agree that it can be too drying for even the heartiest facial skin. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to find a natural facial cleansing gel or face wash that is specially suited to your skin type. Wash your face twice a day with warm purified water and a facial cleanser to remove any perspiration, pollutants, and debris that may accumulate there.
  2. Get Toned: If you have dry, sensitive or combination skin, your skin may be irritated by the drying ingredients like alcohol and acetone found in most skin toners. Skip this step if you have a problem with irritation. However, if you have oil or combination skin, you face will likely benefit from the extra cleansing and pH restoration of a alcohol and acetone free skin toner.
  3. For Your Eyes Only: Eye cream can do wonders to improve the condition of the delicate skin around your eyes. It can also help imperfections such as dark circles and bags, and it can minimize the appearance of fine lines. A good all in one natural eye and facial cream is “Parfait Visage”.
  4. Use Protection: Serious skin care means not only washing, but also protecting your skin from potential damage. Moisturizers and sun block provide good skin protection. Moisturizers hydrate your skin and help to keep dust, debris, and environmental pollutants out of your pores. Sun block protects your face from the sun’s damaging rays. Ultraviolet radiation can lead to damage such as wrinkles, age spots, freckles, moles, rough spots, and even cancer. To save time, use a moisturizer that contains sunscreen with at least an SPF 15.

Under eye Circles and Bags: Lack of sleep, allergies, or skin irritations may sometimes cause the skin around the eyes to appear puffy and darkened. If you are prone to these conditions, look for an eye cream that contains shea butter. This natural ingredient extracted from the Central African Mangifolia tree can reduce skin discolorations, restore skin tone, and diminish fine lines. Wrinkles: Wrinkles are quite literally a sign of the times. There are a number of products and techniques available today to remove or diminish wrinkles. They range from over the counter anti-wrinkle creams to expensive and intrusive plastic surgery. You can choose which method works best for you based on the number of wrinkles you have, and how much you are bothered by them. Protecting your skin from sun damage is the very best thing you can do to prevent wrinkles from developing in the first place. Use a sunscreen with at least an SPF 15 everyday.

 

Age Spots: Age spots develop over time on areas of the body that have been exposed to the sun. These spots are particularly bothersome when they occur on the face. There are several products on the market such as fade creams and retinols that can diminish the appearance. However, you should always consult your health care provider before attempting to treat age spots. These spots could be a precursor to cancer, and your doctor should examine them carefully to rule out a more serious illness. Eczema: This condition varies in its symptoms and severity from person to person. It can manifest either as patches of dry irritated skin, or it can produce areas of broken, swollen, and bleeding skin.

 

Eczema can either be genetically inherited or it can occur as a reaction to potent allergy causing irritants such as nickel, and some chemicals. If you are plagued by this skin condition, see your health care provider to determine the best course of action. Medications, creams, and lifestyle changes such as switching detergents and clothing fabrics, may be necessary. It may also be helpful to avoid dietary irritants such as dairy and wheat products, processed foods, citrus fruits, alcohol, coffee and chocolate For more information on natural cosmetics and skin care visit:

How to Take Care of Sheep Skin Boots

Sheep skin boots and all things made from natural sheep skin are very trendy and very popular among all classes of people. Because sheep skin is a natural material, items that are made with it tend to be very expensive. After spending so much of your hard-earned money on genuine sheep skin boots, you may be scared to wear them fearing that they may become soiled and you won’t be able to get them clean. While it is true that the best way to care for your this type of boot is to not get them dirty in the first place, that likely is not possible. Besides, if you simply wanted to admire the good and expensive look of the boots, then the boots should have remained in the store window display case. They are boots after all, and you should expect that they will get dirty either from urban dirt or country soil.

 

Serious Skin Care Solutions

Even with a flawless skin care routine, you are likely to encounter blemishes and other skin care dilemmas. Acne: Acne is term for a skin condition that includes pimples, blemishes, whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts. The most important rule to remember if you develop acne is that you should never pick or squeeze acne blemishes. This can lead to the spread of acne and the development of acne scars. Instead, there are a number of herbal, homeopathic, and traditional preparations that can be used to treat this condition. For more information on natural acne remedies visit http://www.acne-answers.org.

 

Keep in mind that sheep skin boots are made from an animal’s skin, and animals do get exposed to the elements. They get wet and dirty and they recover from this exposure to the elements, so it is safe to assume that your new boots can be safely cleaned as well. Boots made from a sheep’s skin are in some ways delicate, and they can be easily damaged by chemicals or by scratches and other types of abrasions. To maintain that expensive, soft look of the sheep skin, never use inappropriate chemicals when cleaning. And always use soft rags that will not scratch or otherwise damage the surface of the boots.

 

The first thing you should do after purchasing a pair of sheep skin boots is to apply a spray sealant type product to the boot. Be sure to follow the product’s directions for use. Taking this step is more of a preventative measure. It will offer a certain degree of protection by blocking soil and water from penetrating into the sheep skin. When you do need to clean your sheep skin boots start by using a soft brush or a soft, dry cloth. Apply light pressure and simply try to buff out the stain. If that approach does not work, you can purchase a cleaning product that is recommended for wool. The cleaning product use instructions may or may not require the product to be mixed with lukewarm water. Always read the label first and proceed as instructed.

 

Shoe stores are a good place to locate an appropriate cleaning product to use on sheep skin boots. Searching the Internet is another good way to locate an appropriate cleaning product . If using the Internet, just be sure to take whatever steps are necessary to protect your credit card information. Once you have successfully finished cleaning your sheep skin boots, they will need to dry. You should never use or expose your boots to extreme heat sources when drying. In the path of direct sunlight, in front of a crackling fire or heater or inside a dryer are the places where these boots should never be allowed to roam. Exposing your boots to these extreme sources of heat likely will cause significant as well as permanent damage to the delicate sheep skin. Instead, find a nice shady spot to place your boots so that they can air dry naturally. Never attempt to dry clean your sheep skin boots. The chemicals that are used in the dry cleaning process are harsh and abrasive and will definitely cause damage to the boots. So go ahead and get your boots dirty. They can be safely cleaned.

Skin Care

 

Your skin is your armor, your shield from the elements. Yet when was the last time you really thought about what you need to do to take care of it? Throughout your life, genetic and environmental factors will cause a lot of wear and tear to your skin. But you are never too young or too old to start taking care of your skin. In fact, skin care and protection should be an essential part of your health, fitness, and beauty regime. If you take care of your skin, your skin will take care of you! If your stuck in a skin care rut, or if you are just looking to learn a bit more about the basics of skin care, read on to learn more about this important step in your daily activities.

 

The Essentials of Skin Care

The first step to taking care of your skin is preventing damage. Sun, wind, pollutants, and simply aging can degrade the condition of your skin. Common complaints include dry and itchy skin, wrinkles, sagging, color changes, and age spots. There are steps that you can take to keep you skin looking and feeling its best.

 

Exercise, rest, and good nutrition lay the foundation for beautiful, healthy skin, inside and out. A proper diet is not only good for your overall health, it also helps to ensure that your skin will receive all of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that it needs to maintain and repair cells. Drinking purified water is another good way to keep your skin healthy. Water helps to hydrate the skin and move waste and nutrients through the system. It is very effective mixing a teaspoon or capful of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar in with your water. Do not drink Tap Water.

 

The most important way to care for your skin is to protect it from the damaging rays of the sun. Ultraviolet radiation damages the skin and can lead to wrinkles, premature aging, age spots, and cancer. Take extra precautions to make sure your skin is not exposed to the sun’s rays. Use a natural sunscreen, or a moisturizer that contains sunscreen (at least SPF 15) everyday. Your skin does need some sunlight – 10-15 minutes of direct exposure daily.

 

Dry skin is very common, especially with age. Older skin has fewer sweat and oil glands than younger skin. Dry skin may be caused by frequent baths, certain cosmetics or medications. But whatever the cause, there are ways to alleviate the itchiness associated with it. Avoid using harsh soaps when bathing, and if possible, cut back on the number of baths or showers each week. A sponge bath with warm water may help to clean and revive skin without stripping the skin of its valuable moisturizers. When you do use soap, try using a natural very mild soap that does not contain any dyes, parabens or perfumes. Follow up the bath with a moisturizing lotion like Parfait Visage, concentrating on problem dry areas. A good all natural moisturizer is one of the foundations for a healthy skin care regimen. Continue moisturizing throughout the day to keep skin healthy. Your hands and face are particularly susceptible to daily damage, and may need to be moisturized several times.

 

A Skin Care Routine

A skin care routine does not have to be elaborate in order to be effective. But you should develop some kind of skin care routine based on your skin type, daily activities, and nutritional needs so that you can be sure you are taking the very best care of your skin. Following a daily skin care regime will also allow you to more closely evaluate your skin for abnormalities.

 

Here's a simple routine that you can adapt to fit your needs:

  1. Cleanse: Wash your skin thoroughly on a daily basis to remove the dirt, debris, pollutants, and perspiration that accumulates on a daily basis. If you have dry or sensitive skin, use only warm water to wash your skin and use a mild natural cleanser every few days like the product Oxy-Skin. If you have normal or oily skin, be sure to wash with a gentle cleanser on a daily basis. Be sure to brush your teeth before washing your face, as toothpaste residue can irritate sensitive facial skin.
  2. Moisturize: Unless your skin is very oily, you will want to use a moisturizer everyday to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Your skin needs moisturizer all year long as both the indoor winter heat, and summer sun can be equally damaging to your skin. The most advanced product is “Parfait Visage” which is used for the face.
  3. Protect: Use a natural sunscreen when possible, regardless of whether or not you plan on spending much time in the sun. The sun's rays are very damaging and if you get in the habit of applying sunscreen everyday, you will never be left without protection. The suns most beneficial rays occur at sunrise and sunset.

Skin Care Products

There are several types of skin care products that may make a useful additional to your daily skin care. These include cleansers, sunscreens, moisturizers, exfoliants, facial cleansers, toners, retonoids, herbal and nutrient supplements, and cosmetics.

Skin Care Products

You are never too young or too old to start taking care of your skin. In fact, skin care and protection should be an essential part of your health, fitness, and beauty regime. If you take care of your skin, your skin will take care of you! But with all of the lotions, creams, and potions on the market, it can be difficult to know which product will work for you. Many products claim to remove wrinkles or heal dry skin. Others claim to contain expensive ingredients that they say will improve the effects of the product. Here is a guide to the basic skin care products on the market, and how you can decipher which product will work best for you.

 

A Look At The Products

There are several types of skin care products that may make a useful additional to your daily skin care. These include cleansers, sunscreens, moisturizers, eye creams, toners, exfoliants, retinoids, herbals, and skin care supplements. Cleansers: Cleansers help to remove the dirt, debris, pollutants and perspiration that accumulate on your skin throughout the day. They may come in liquid, foam, or bar form.

 

Sunscreen:

Sunscreen is an essential product for the care and protection of your skin. While it is true that some exposure to sunshine is necessary for the body to synthesize vitamin D, you really only need 10-15 minutes each day to accomplish this. Excess sun exposure can cause changes in the skin cells leading to damage. People with fair skin need to be much more careful than those with darker skin. But dark skin can become damaged too. Applying a liberal amount of a natural sunscreen with at least an SPF 15 will prevent sun damage and lower your risk of developing skin cancer. Many moisturizers come with sunscreen already included.

 

Moisturizer:

Moisturizers can soothe dry skin and make wrinkles less noticeable. They come in cream, lotion, and oil form. Oil based moisturizers are good for severely dry skin on the body whereas a cream or lotion is a better choice for the face as it will leave the face feeling less heavy and greasy. Use a moisturizer right after bathing to seal moisture into your skin. Eye Creams: An eye cream can help to improve the condition of the fragile skin around the eyes. It helps to hydrate and protect this area and it may even help to minimize dark circles or temporarily tighten fine lines.

 

Toners:

Skin toners offer a bit of extra cleansing to skin that tends to be combination or oily. But if your skin has become dry, avoid using a skin toner. These skin care products often contain alcohol or acetone, and they can aggravate dry or sensitive skin.

 

The chemicals and toxins found in most commercial skin care products also have a detrimental effect on the environment, although this effect is just beginning to be understood. In March, a team of US Geological Survey scientists showed that a variety of chemicals from personal care products were among 95 wastewater contaminants found in US waterways. Why poison yourself and the environment with toxic chemicals and pollutants? Natural skin care products are healthier for you, for your skin, and for the environment. But many products may claim to be all-natural while still containing a number of harmful ingredients. Make sure you read and understand the product label to ensure that the product your using is as natural as it claims to be.

 

Exfoliants:

Moisturizers and cleansers that contain exfoliants help to improve the appearance of skin by sloughing off dead cells on the skin's surface. They may also help to smooth out the skin's appearance and even out discoloration from overexposure to sun. Since older skin does not naturally lose dead skin cells as easily as younger skin does, an exfoliant may be a good product for skin that appears rough and sallow with age.

 

Retinoids:

Topical vitamin-A based products called retinoids have made significant advances in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. They help to temporarily “plump up” the area around a wrinkle and diminish its visibility. This is not a solution for long term results.

 

Herbals:

Green tea and other herbal antioxidants can be applied topically or taken orally to fight free radical damage to the skin and approve its overall appearance.

 

Supplements:

Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring cellular antioxidant that has shown potential in the prevention and treatment of several diseases, such as heart disease, Parkinson's disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. It is also utilized in many moisturizing products for its wrinkle reducing properties.

 

Deciphering The Ingredient Label

You may be wondering why skin care products come with such a confusing labeling system. The Food and Drug Administration receives many requests each year to decipher the language of cosmetic and personal care product labels. But while they empathize with consumers, there really is no way to change the labeling and keep the information accurate. The ingredients need to be listed by their chemical names because that is essentially what they are. Even though a product may be marketed by its trade name, this name will provide little clue as to the identity of its ingredients. But despite the technical language of the skin care product's label, it is possible to glean some useful information.

 

Ingredients must be listed in sequence based on how much is included in the formula. As a consumer, you can compare similar products by seeing where a particular ingredient falls in the list. For example, if you have sensitive skin, you may want to avoid a product that lists alcohol as its first ingredient, but one with alcohol as one of the last ingredients may not aggravate your skin. Of course it is best to avoid alcohol completely. For more information on natural skin care and make-up go to http://www.skin-care-support.org.

Natural Skin Care

You work hard to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. You know that organic foods can help you avoid ingesting nasty hormones and chemicals but did you know that these toxins are creeping into your system in other ways? Your moisturizers, eye creams, and make up may seem harmless, but check out the labels and you'll find a laundry list of tongue-twisting ingredients, many of which could be hazardous to your health. In a recent survey, conducted by Health, eighty three percent of responding consumers indicated that they would rather use all natural body products. The skin care industry is responding to this demand. The natural and organic skin care product sector has seen a growth of thirty nine percent over the last year. Some of these products may claim to be all-natural, while still containing a slew of chemicals and toxins. Here's what you need to know about natural skin care and how to determine if the product you are using is free of harmful chemicals.

 

Why Choose Natural Skin Care Products?

There is approximately six pounds of skin on your body which provides a porous membrane into your system. Dirt, dust, pollutants, and other environmental pollutants enter the body through the skin, providing a more significant gateway to your system than food. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) found that 884 chemicals used in personal care products and cosmetics are known to be toxic. And a recent Canadian study in Pediatric Drugs found cosmetic and personal care products as the most common cause of unintentional poisonings of kids under six.

 

Reading the Ingredients Label

Organic personal care manufacturing needs strict standards and enforcement in order to be effective. Currently, some manufacturers claim their products are organic merely as a marketing gimmick. One look at their products ingredients clearly suggests otherwise. Only by tying organic beauty care closely to the National Organic Program standards can the “lifestyle” marketed by the manufacturers represent the values at the core of organic agriculture.

 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies cosmetics into 13 categories, but it does not regulate them. According to the FDA, “A cosmetic manufacturer may use any ingredient or raw material and market the final product without government approval.” Seven toxins are banned, but many more known toxins and carcinogens are allowed in cosmetic formulations. Less than one percent of the FDA’s budget is for the evaluation of skin care products.

 

Many commercial skin care products have been regularly found to contain toxic chemicals. Surprisingly, most personal care products are not tested for health and safety. And because the FDA does not regulate skin care manufacturers, questionable ingredients often make their way into their formulas. These ingredients may seem harmless in the short-term, but their chemical components are stored in the fatty tissues of the body where they accumulate and magnify over time.

 

Cosmetics and personal care products are marketed based on the quality and content of their formulas. Many products claim to be filled with expensive vitamins, oils, and perfumes. Others claim to utilize an all-natural formula. But how can you be sure that the products you buy actually contain the ingredients they claim to have? Read the label, right? But unless you happen to be a scientist or chemist, the ingredient list on most cosmetics and personal care products will look like a long list of mind-numbing, tongue-twisting names.

 

This is where natural and organic skin care products should stand out. If a product claims to be all natural, its ingredients should be easily recognizable as natural components. Also, the ingredients should be listed in descending order with the most prominent factors listed first. Scrutinize the first several listings in the product to be sure that they are the natural ingredients you are looking for. If a skin care product contains an ingredient that you are unsure about, write down it's name and do a little research. A quick online search should reveal it's true nature. As a consumer, you need to be on the look out for chemicals and toxic ingredients that can be harmful to your skin and your body. You would not even think about eating a food that contained chemicals or cancer causing agents. Don't let these toxins enter your system through your beauty product either!
