One great way to refresh your skin, especially in the summer, is to use a cotton ball soaked in witch hazel. Witch hazel is a mild herbal-based toner, low in alcohol. It will deal with the oiliness that builds up on your face on a hot summer day, but not in a drying way, and will leave your face feeling cool and refreshed
If you have severely dry skin on your hands, it can and should be treated with an antibiotic cream, like you would use on cuts and scrapes. In many cases, extremely dry skin crack open and bleeds. If these cuts are ignored they can become worse – leading to scarring or even an infection. Care for them early by applying an antibiotic cream before applying moisturizer.
To enhance your skin’s smoothness consider a face wash with exfoliating beads. The exfoliating beads remove dead skin which is a major contributor to clogged pores and, as a result, blemishes. Apply the face wash when you get up and right before bed. Rubbing the beads as quickly and strongly as you can without hurting yourself is recommended.
Exfoliating your skin with a mask every week can do wonders for your acne. Try using an oatmeal mask, which can help to dry out your skin to reduce the size of your pores, while eliminating bacteria. An oatmeal mask is a great way to get rid of the dead skin cells lodged on the surface of your face.
People with rosacea struggle with the problem of how to leave for work in the morning without a bright red face. The heat of the shower, the heat of the hair dryer, the rushing around, the cold wind on your cheeks at the bus stop – all these things can trigger flushing. Here are some things you can do. End your shower with a cold blast of water (excruciating, but it works). Let your hair air-dry or shower the night before. Wear a scarf to cover everything but your eyes if it’s cold out. By identifying and minimizing your triggers, you can help keep your rosacea under control.
Potassium in bananas can help erase dark circles around your eyes and moisturize your skin. Mash half of a banana and rub it into your skin in different patches. Wait about 5 minutes and rinse it off gently. This will leave your skin feeling soft and your dark circles muted.
