treat your skin problems. Doctors and the nutritionists recommend that
you drink at least 6 to 8 glasses a day. It is also necessary to get
enough rest, and this means 6 to 8 hours of sleep daily. Acidic foods
and dairy products cause allergic reactions in some people, so these may

skin cells; this should be done once or twice a week. It allows your
skin to breathe, and it also helps to prevent any ingrown hairs that may
develop. It is necessary to avoid using body exfoliates on the face,
because the facial tissue is finer than other tissues. There are
exfoliating gels that you can use on your face, but people that are
affected by acne should avoid using these gels, as they may aggravate
acne problems. It is best, when you are dealing with acne, to consult
your physician — he or she will be able to help you.
Consider a Healthy Routine
doctors recommend that you cleanse, moisturize, and tone your skin and
remove all makeup before going to sleep. No matter how tired you are,
you should cleanse your face before bed, and you should never go to
sleep with makeup on. Facial cleansing and makeup removal will allow
your skin to breathe as you sleep.

growth — this will help to prevent razor bumps, razor burn, and ingrown
hairs on the face. If scarring on the face is unsightly, it is
recommended that use jasmine or neroli essential oils on your face. This
works with stretch marks also. There are arnica creams and ointments,
and these are good to use when you have bruises. Vicks VapoRub can also
be effective in alleviating bruises.
Exposure to the Sun
it comes to skin care, you need to avoid the sun. Over-exposure to
sunlight causes sunburn, although there are creams to help alleviate the
discomfort. You should cover up before you venture out into the sun, or
you should use sunblock. When you exercise, it is especially important
to use sunblock. Exercise itself will also help to keep your skin
It is said
that your skin reflects your health, and that is why you should take
care of it. You should develop healthy habits, and this is a good way to
protect your skin. Lead a healthy lifestyle, and let your skin show it!
