The secret of a healthy glowing skin

How many times have you tried all sorts of facial products but to no avail? If you have a facial skincare regime that you follow religiously and still your skin is dull or prone to breakouts, it is about time that you stop blaming the skincare manufacturers and take the exfoliator in your own hands. Your skin will absorb very little nutrients if its pores are clogged with dead skin cells. It is like trying to eat an ice-cream through a glass. So, the thing that you must do at once is start treating your skin the way it deserves.

A little effort can go a long way

You want to learn the secret to a healthy glowing skin? The secret is not hidden in record-breaking overpriced facial creams, reconstructive surgeries, nor Photoshop, but in a meticulous skincare regime. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and in addition to its role of being your first in line barrier that protects your body against bacteria and virus infections, it also detoxifies it. If you aid in these efforts of the skin, you will witness an unthinkable change.

Mild exfoliation

The skin exfoliation can be performed once to twice a week. If you overdo it, you will witness an adverse effect. Your skin will be red, inflamed, and irritated. Even your skin can have a much of a good thing. When you start your exfoliation procedure, take your time. You can buy a special exfoliation scrub, a special exfoliation brush, or special exfoliation product, but trust me nothing works like the blend of honey, brown sugar and a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil. Take just a pinch of the product and rub it on your forehead, using miniature circular motions. Then move slowly on your nose, without forgetting that the creases between the nose and the cheeks are the dead skin cells graveyards. A good manual skin facial skin exfoliation should last around 15 to 20 minutes. You cannot rush perfection.

Dry facial brushing

Dry skin brushing is an ancient skin detoxifying technique that is gaining a lot of awareness lately. However, most of the practitioners are focusing on their bodies and omitting the face. If you want to have a baby-like skin, buy one clean baby soft toothbrush and every day just gently caress your entire face with it. You will eradicate the superficial dead skin cells, reinvigorate the circulation of blood and open your pores.

The moisturizer always follows the exfoliation

Once you are done with the exfoliation, you need to apply the appropriate skin type moisturizer at once, as the enlarged pores will absorb the nutrients more efficiently, and as a result, you will have a glowing face. The importance of skin exfoliation is highlighted by the celebrity skin care expert Renee Rouleau. If you thought that it was of an immense importance being an earnest, just read her article The Importance of Skin Exfoliation on her blog.

You do know that skin is a miracle in progress, right? So, before you give up after one week only, try persisting in your efforts at least for one month and then see yourself in a whole new light. Or should I say a whole new skin?
