Fashion with Care

By: ysn
Did you know that skin is considered the largest organ in the body? No? Well, some habits are essential in order to care for your skin and have a radiant complexion all year long. Whatever your skin type is, here are the ten essential habits to keep you healthy looking!
1.    Specific care for each skin type
2.    Pay special attention to fragile areas
3.    Gentle cleansing
4.    Eyes: a risk area
5.    Exfoliation is indispensable
6.    Moisturizing is essential
7.    Preferably hypoallergenic make-up
8.    Sun protection
9.    Watch out for external stress
10.    Don't neglect the lips
Specific care for each skin type:
In order to take care of and respect your skin, first and foremost make sure to choose products specially designed for your skin type. Dry skin does not have the same needs as oily skin.
Pay special attention to fragile areas:
Some parts of your face (eye contour, lips, etc.) have particularly fine, fragile skin. They need specific care, especially the eye contour and the lips. These areas of your face are more sensitive and deserve special attention.
Gentle cleansing:
Taking care of sensitive skin begins with make-up removal.  In order not to stress your skin and to respect its natural balance, make sure to use a pH-neutral make-up remover, specially formulated to cleanse your epidermis gently.
Eyes: a risk area
The eye contour skin is ten times finer than the skin on the rest of the face. Choose a specific routine for make-up removal in this area.
Exfoliation is indispensable
Use a suitable exfoliation treatment once or twice a week. It must be effective yet gentle and respectful. Choose a pH-neutral exfoliation product, which is perfect for smoothing and purifying the skin while respecting its natural balance.
Moisturizing is essential
The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis, 15%. In order to keep the skin well moisturized, it is important to choose daily moisturizing skin care products that balance the level of water within the skin. You may also use a moisturizing mask regularly, removing the excess with a spring water spray.
Preferably hypoallergenic make-up
To avoid the risk of allergies linked to the use of products that are not suited to your skin, choose hypoallergenic make-up specially formulated to meet the needs of all skin and eye types, even sensitive skin.
Sun protection
Whatever the season, choose daily skincare products that include solar filters. They reduce the harmful effects of the sun, which accelerates skin ageing.
Watch out for external stress
Pollution, smoke, stress… All these have harmful effects on the skin. Use skincare products to protect your skin against these daily stresses before leaving the house and cleanse your skin thoroughly when you come home in the evening.
Don't neglect the lips
As soon as you feel the need, use a restorative cream for the lips.  Do not hesitate to reapply to this particularly fragile area as often as necessary.
Eating habits
Everyone knows this but most of us don’t practice it. Fruits and veggies are the most important ingredient for healthy, glowing skin. Research everywhere has concluded on this fact. Individuals who eat more fruit and veggie rich diet are rated as more attractive than those with suntans! Scientists say antioxidants are the key, because they improve circulation, and alter skin pigment. Those thought to have the greatest impact are lycopene, which gives tomatoes their red color and watermelon its pink hue, and beta-carotene, found in carrots, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, broccoli, and leafy greens. Polyphenols, which cause blood to rush to the skin surface, also play a role. They’re found in dark grapes, cherries, plums, apples, blackberries, and blueberries. Antioxidants also act like natural bodyguards, to fend off compounds that harm skin, including pollution, cigarette smoke, and skin damagers produced by stress and sun exposure.
So folks, be healthy and look beautiful. Take care.
