How to Make your Skin Glow

by jeff on December 12, 2011

When you are a woman then there is no question if your first priority would become beautiful and glowing. In order to achieve a glowing look, you need to know the importance of your skin. Your skin is an organ and alive. It is charged with many important duties and it is your duty to take care of it.

Your skin is the first layer of your immune system that will serve as a shield between you and many germs and viruses in the environment. It also protects your inside body from harsh environments like UV rays, cold, scrapes, cuts, and moisture. Like any part of your body, your skin can be healthy or ill. Unfortunately, as we age our body can’t produce the necessary vitamins and nutrition to be used to nourish our skin. Also, as we age, there are many unpleasant things that can happen to our skin like having wrinkles, age spots, dark circles, and large pores.

Here are 10 tips for you to follow in order to naturally achieve that glowing skin you ever dream of:

  1. Have shorter and cooler sprays rather than long and steamy showers. Hot showers can dry out the natural moisture of your skin.
  2. Check the dryness of your skin by scratching a small area and see if it leaves a white mark. If it does, then you will need a moisturizer for your skin.
  3. You should also take care of your neck and chest like an extension of your face. These areas are covered by very sensitive skin. You can use facial cleansing creams to hydrate it and make these areas youthful.
  4. Use a humidifier during winter in order to moisturize the air in your bedroom. This can ease itchy and dry skin.
  5. Use soaps with added fat than deodorant soap. Deodorant soaps can be drying and they can dehydrate your skin.
  6. If you have sensitive skin then keeps your beauty products clean and simple. You should not use products with color, fragrance, or that produces bubbles.
  7. You can achieve young-looking hands and feet by putting moisturizing cream in those areas and then put on thin-fabric socks and gloves while you sleep.
  8. Select a moisturizer that contains skin-repairing humectants. Humectants attract water and can improve hydration of your skin.
  9. Use unscented baby powder to keep areas where skin meets skin clean and dry. This is very important because when skin meets each other often, it will produce friction and moist that can give birth to bacteria or fungi.
  10. Lastly, if you are going out for a day in the sun, do not use scented lotions and perfumes. Scented products can lead to blotchy skin when they are exposed to the sun.

You can’t control your age but you can control the factors that can dull your skin. You can follow the tips that were given and have that glow you want. Our skin is a special organ of our body that we can apply moisturizers, medicines, and other healthy potions for protection. For that reason alone, there is no reason for our skin to look dull and unhealthy. With the tips above plus the correct cream to be applied to your skin, you will have a healthy and attractive skin throughout your life.
