Advice on Healthy Skin Care

     Good skin care throughout life, can help prevent a multitude of problems and can keep you looking and feeling healthy and youthful.  Don’t think that it requires intensive skin care for it either.  Genetics also plays a significant role.  Taking care of your skin, should not be looked upon as another mundane part of your daily routine but rather an invested regimen for yourself that can exceed a lifetime.  It should be addressed starting at the age of 14.  Our society is composed of pollutants and chemicals that seep into the pores so start skin care at a young age.

  Skin Care Routine For The Young

     For the youth, routine is a bit effortless.  Washing your face with a chemical free soap followed by an all natural skin cream before bedtime is sufficient.  If your out playing sports or sun tanning, make sure to use an all natural sunscreen lotion.  Yes it exists.  Do your research.

   Adult Skin Care

   Skin care for adults is a bit more intense.  As you age,  overtime the skin has been exposed to sun, smoke, stress, chemical pollutants, alcohol, make up, poor eating habits, unhealthy life styles and neglectful skin care routines that take a toll on the skin.  As the skin ages, it becomes thinner, begins to sag and doesn’t have the plump nor smooth look that it once did.  Gravity also takes over.  For these reasons, incorporating skin care as a daily routine, is important.
