January 11, 2012  by: Dr. Simran Kaur  Points: 40   Category: Others    Views: 916

Very important thing which is very necessary but usually we people forget is removing makeup before going to sleep.


Skin care consists of these steps-

1. Cleansing.

2. Exfoliating.

3. Moisturizing.

4. Protection from UVA and UVB rays.

Let's consider how to do each step and what is importance of each step in skin care.

1. Cleansing - cleansing is first and very important step when considering or going for skin care. Cleansing should be done on daily basis. But how much result cleansing shows on your skin depend upon the type of product you use to wash the face. For dry skin use moisturizing or cream based face wash and for oily skin use gel based face wash made from important ingredients like aloe vera, neem. Avoid harsh soap on skin whether it's oily or dry skin. If you want to use the soap then use mild soap like which are glycerin based soap which are soft on skin.

2. Second step- Exfoliation
- next step in skin care is exfoliation or you can say exfoliating the dead skin cells and dirt from the skin pores. Exfoliation helps in removing the dirt and toxins embedded deep in the skin pores, removing blackheads by removing dirt and bacteria embedded in them. Now next question comes about the consistency of the scrub for the face use mild scrubber, gentle on skin consisting of small and fine granules. But for foot use scrubber like walnut scrub having small and hard granules as the foot accumulate more dirt due to more exposure to dust all the time.

Very important step regarding scrubbing is that it should be done only twice a week, but avoid using it on daily basis. And also avoid going in sun two to three hours after scrubbing, but if you cannot avoid going in sun then apply sunscreen before going in sun.

3. Moisturizing
- next important step in skin care is moisturizing. It is the third step in skin care which is moisturizing which helps in nourishing and replenishing the skin of its lost moisture. Never apply moisturizer on unclean skin.

4. Protection from harmful ultraviolet rays
- now we have done all the three main steps in skin care that is cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing but if we forget the last step that is protection from harmful ultraviolet rays of sun. This can be done by applying sunscreen which gives good amount of protection from harmful ultraviolet rays and at the same time not harsh on skin. Use fruit based sunscreen. And also avoid using it at night.

And very important thing which is very necessary but usually we people forget is removing makeup before going to sleep.

Wow, very well written in a neat orderly fashion. If we follow these steps one by one, we can surely improve our skin! Pollution and traffic smoke does much harm to the skin. Moreover, if we have lot of make up, the pollution can also create much damage to the skin. Hence, as you rightly mention, we should frequently wash the face and keep it clean. Exfoliation and cleansing should be followed by applying a moisturizer to soothe the skin.

We should give proper protection for our skin. We can protect our skin through the following ways.

. Wash your face twice or thrice a day with warm water and a mild soap made for people with acne. Gently massage your face with circular motions.

. Don't scrub. Overwashing and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated.

. Avoid touching your face with your fingers. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.

. If you get acne on your body, try not to wear tight clothes. They don't allow skin to breathe and may cause irritation. Scarves, headbands, and caps can collect dirt and oil, too.

. Remove your makeup before you go to sleep.

. Throw away old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it.

. Protect your skin from the sun.
