Skin care is just as important as caring for your health. Many times, women fail to take the time out to tend to their skincare needs, which ultimately ends in tragedy. Taking care of your skin is vital to having younger, healthier looking skin. It is everyone’s ideal dream to have glowing looking skin without all the scars and blemishes. It can be hard to catch a break from all the unpredictable things your skin can do. Here are five tips you can start incorporating in your daily life to improve your skin’s texture.

Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin is perfect for improving your skins texture because it removes the dead skin. It is actually a natural process that helps rejuvenate skin by removing any loose or dead skin cells from the surface, thus revealing healthy skin below. Exfoliating should be done daily, but as needed depending on your skin type.

Exfoliating is great for all skin types and can really help your skin reveal its natural glow. Everyone struggles with having picture perfect skin; just know that the journey to improving your skins texture is well worth it.

Apply Sunscreen

We never pay attention to all the harsh entities our skin endures on a daily basis. From dry weather to harsh sunrays, our skin goes through plenty throughout the day and needs to be taken care. It’s important to apply sunscreen daily to our skin even when the sun is not shining bright.

It does not matter if it’s rain or shine, we must apply sunscreen to prevent wrinkles and reduce the amount of redness and unevenness in skin, keeping skin supple for longer. SPF is probably one of the most underrated skin care products out. So, listen to me… stock up and apply regularly! Applying sunscreen can help prevent skin cancer by protecting you from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays.

Use Oils

When folks think of oils it instantly makes them feel like their pores are clogged. In reality, some oils are actually good for the skin. You do not want to have dry skin, because it will increase the chances of wrinkles, and actually looking dry.

Oil based products are great for applying to your skin because it regulates sebum production in the skin. Therefore, making it supple, yet balanced and ultra-smooth. Some oils include antioxidants, which helps with the imperfections your skin deals with. Some oils may reduce your risk of chronic diseases.

Vitamin C

Whether you like vitamin C or not, I encourage you to get on board with liking it. Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants that needs to be incorporated in your skincare routine. You can take it via pill, or apply vitamin C ingredients directly to your skin.

Adding some vitamin C to your skin care regiment can help improve the skin’s texture by repairing and defending the skin from environmental damage while reducing pigmentation, scar tissue and age spots. You will notice your skin looking younger, softer, and smoother!

Test out facial masks

Facial masks can help with acne, and blemishes. Facial masks are great because they are easy to apply and quick to wash off. Depending on what your desired problem that you would like to fix, a mask does a little bit of everything. There are varieties of different masks that range in pricing. Some inexpensive masks you can be picked up from your local beauty store.

Many times, masks give us hydration to help with the lack of hydration our body gets.  Clay masks are great for acne prone oily skin as the clay draws out the impurities from deep in the pores. They can also help address specific skin care concerns such as dullness or oily skin. Applying skin masks can be a very relaxing, spa-like experience.
