Having a bright, glowing face, fresh and smooth skin, and soft and shiny hair is undoubtedly the dream of many people, especially women. However, daily activities that expose our skin to pollution, not to mention using makeup all day, and unhealthy eating patterns ultimately make our skin no longer smooth. Finally, we have to spend more to go to a beauty clinic for treatment.
Body care does not always have to be a big cost, as long as it is done regularly. Here are some simple body care tips & tricks so that your skin can stay smooth even when you have many activities.
Don’t Miss Sunscreen
Yes, this one step of body care is really not to be missed, especially for those of us who live in tropical areas like Indonesia. Most people only use sunscreen when going swimming or doing activities directly in the sun. Wherever you go, don’t forget to use sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun.
The second mistake that many people make is only using sunscreen on the face. In fact, we should apply sunscreen to all surfaces of the skin that will be exposed to sunlight, such as the neck, hands and feet.
Choose a sunscreen that can protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are rays that cause skin burns so that they are darker in color, while UVA rays are rays that can cause skin wrinkles, black spots, premature aging, and skin cancer. Therefore, even when it is cloudy we still have to use sunscreen .
This body care step is often taken lightly. Most people think that just washing your face is enough. In fact, double cleansing is very important to do, especially for those of you who frequently use makeup, sweat easily, or are exposed to dust and pollution.
Double cleansing is to clean the face twice, with oil-based face cleanser (oil base) and water-based (water base).
Why do you have to double cleansing ? Because when you clean your face 2 times, all the makeup along with the dirt is completely removed so that no residue doesn’t stick to your face all night while you are sleeping. This method also makes your skin more moisturized and makes skincare easier to absorb.
Always Remember Moisturizer
Have dry skin? Maybe you often forget this one step of body care. Washing your face is important, but what should not be forgotten is to use a moisturizer afterwards. We will recommend you to use a honey moisturizer. Especially if you are in an air-conditioned room all day.
The time when you use a moisturizer has a fairly large impact on its effectiveness. Water exposure actually dries out the skin as it evaporates. Using a moisturizer makes moisture more “locked in” and becomes a skin barrier.
This is because most moisturizers contain substances that absorb water and prevent evaporation so that the skin remains moisturized. Therefore, it is recommended to use a honey moisturizer after washing your face while your skin is still damp to help maintain deeper moisture.
Everyone knows that washing your face is important. But knowing how to wash your face is equally important. The key is not to be too rushed when washing your face and applying moisturizer.
While washing your face, take the time to gently massage your face before rinsing it off. The goal is to improve circulation and make your skin look fresher and firmer.
In addition, facial massage can also make the body care products that you use more penetrate into the skin.
Routinely use a face mask
Many people think that masks are an extra step when they want to pamper themselves, hang out with friends, or at certain other times. In fact, face masks are actually quite important to do in your body care routine.
Face masks have so many benefits ranging from moisturizing the face, overcoming dry skin, oily skin, redness, to acne. For the use of face masks, it depends on the type of skin and the type of mask we use. Currently, there are many types of face masks available, ranging from sheet shapes to clay masks.
As for the duration of use, it is recommended to use it for 10-20 minutes 1-2 times per week. The goal is to give the skin time to breathe. If it’s too much, there are masks that absorb natural oils on the skin and cause dry skin.
