Skin Care

hair-removalEveryone faces the hair removal process some time or the other in life. There are various categories of hair removal that depends on position (body, facial, bikini), type of removal (shaving, waxing, plucking) or the type of hair (terminal or vellum). If you know what type of hair you have, you will be able to choose the correct procedure to remove the hair.

Vellum hair that is fine, soft and short is generally found on women face, back or chest. The removal of such hair is discretionary, especially if your skin tone is darker that can make such hair more visible. Terminal hair that grows on your armpits, head, bikini zone and legs is darker, longer and coarser.

For removing vellum hair, the most recommended methods consist of plucking, laser hair removal or waxing. On the other hand, you can use waxing, shaving, depilatories, plucking, prescription treatment, electrolysis and laser to remove terminal hair. The selection of hair removal methods is based on your capability to bear pain, economic strength and the area that you desire to clean.

Though shaving is cheap, the effect will last only for a few days. Another main disadvantage is that unless your hair grows to a certain length, you won’t be able to shave it.

The effect of plucking lasts long and is suggested for small areas like chin, eyebrows and upper lip. Depilatories should be bought with care and can be used on any region that you choose. The effect of depilatories will stay for up to two weeks. The effect of waxing lasts long but the method is very painful. The skin of some people may develop inflammation, redness and bumps after waxing. However, these effects disappear soon.

Electrolysis is a permanent way of removing hair. It’s generally used for smaller regions like underarms, upper lip and eyebrows. Though laser hair removal is costly, the effect will last for at least 6 months and the procedure won’t cause you pain.

Skin Care For Teenagers

To look beautiful on the outside, the first thing that you must do is to feel beautiful from inside, and see how the magic works. If you have a naturally beautiful skin, even sparse use of makeup can create that “all out” look for those special occasions.

Dry skin: to deal with this skin condition use a moisturizing mask before you get into the shower, and if that sounds like too much of work, just rub in a good amount of moisturizer. And after the shower, gently wipe off everything with a damp washcloth. You can also scrub your face mildly with a bathing sponge, but don’t forget to re-moisturize your face after the shower.

Oily skin: the best way to keep this skin healthy is to tone it, both before and after the shower. Oily skin is normally seen layered with oil in the morning when you wake up, and washing it off with some warm water will do a lot of good to your skin. And since, keeping the skin moisturized is very important to maintain a healthy skin, get yourself some oil free moisturizer to dab on your skin, after the shower.

Combination skin: since the T zone on your face is likely to be oily, you must treat this area with a toner, but at the same time you must avoid using it on your cheeks where your skin is dry. Although some parts of your face may be dry, you will still be better off with an oil-free moisturizer.

Makeup Tips

For a night in the town, apply some foundation to your face, but be particular about the shade of the foundation and find one that is the closest match for your natural skin-tone. And when you want to hit the discotheque, deck up your eyes with some eye shadow and your lips with a lipstick, while avoiding flashy colors altogether.

111. Always use good quality cosmetics, and avoid the temptation to save a few pennies buying cheap cosmetics. Cheap cosmetics means cheap ingredients and these cheap ingredients can have some severe damaging effects on your skin. Stick to buying well known brands, with which you can be sure about the quality.

2. Wearing makeup to look beautiful is fine, but before you say goodnight, be sure to wipe your skin clean of all the makeup. With the layers of makeup, your pores are blocked and your skin finds it difficult to breathe, and the adverse effects of this will show up sooner or later.

3. Learn to love your skin and be gentle to it. Harsh scrubbing, pulling and tugging will cause damage to your skin. And being gentle doesn’t simply imply being nice to your skin physically but it also implies using quality cosmetics that won’t harm your skin. Go in for milder cosmetics and remember to cleanse and moisturize your skin on a regular basis.

4. Exfoliating should be a regular feature, to get rid of all the dirt stuck in the pores and to remove dead skin cells. And equally important, is using face masks to feed your skin externally with essential nutrients and essential oils.

5. Keeping your skin hydrated is the most important of all, so keep your moisturizer at easy reach, wherever you go. And after every face wash, make it a habit to use a moisturizer.

6. The harsh Sun rays, laden with the UV radiation, have the most detrimental effect on your skin. And the best way to safeguard your skin against sun damage is to use a good sunscreen lotion and to keep your skin covered whenever you step out in the sun.

7. Get some night treatment cosmetics, to replenish and revitalize your skin, which contain antioxidants and herbal extracts. These must be applied to the skin before bedtime to neutralize the effect of makeup, sun damage and exposure to chemicals and pollution.

8. And lastly and most importantly, for healthy skin care mental stress is the most important of all. So indulge in some recreational activities to hammer the stress, and help your skin to glow and shine.

pimple-marksOnce your pimples disappear, the most depressing thing is the marks that they leave behind. So having fought one battle, of getting rid of pimples, you are faced with another Herculean task and that is to get rid of those unsightly marks. Here is something to help you out.

Cleansing

Use some soap free cleansers, which are gentle on your skin and devoid of any harsh chemicals, to deeply cleanse your skin. Look for cleansers which do not contain any oils, fragrance or alcohol.

While cleansing your skin avoid scrubbing it too hard, because scrubbing can irritate your skin pores and this can lead to further breakouts. Unless your skin is very oily, you don’t need to apply a toner after cleansing.

When buying a cleanser, look for one which has the right pH balance and contains either salicylic acid on benzoil peroxide.

Protect your skin

To prevent further outbreaks, you must use some topical treatment which contains benzoil peroxide or glycolic acid all over your face skin. And before you retire to bed, you must apply some spot treatment to dry up the blemishes. Keeping your skin well moisturized and covering it up with sunscreen to prevent sun damage are two other essential aspects to help your skin to fight the blemishes left by pimples.

Concealing with makeup

Getting rid of blemishes takes a long time, and for a temporary cover-up you may have to use makeup. Both, foundation and dab concealer are equally good to cover up blemishes, it’s just that you need to be particular about how you spread the concealer to match with the remaining skin. Blend the concealer well with your skin using either a makeup brush or your fingertips to avoid looking blotchy.

Instant tricks

When you’re in a hurry to get ready for a party or some other occasion, just to wipe your face with a toner and then rinse it off with plain cold water. To reduce the redness and swelling on your skin, get yourself a cortisone cream that’s freely available at most drugstores.

acne-scarAcne scars are not just embarrassing and ugly, but may also be quite demoralizing and infuriating. Nonetheless, there are several ways of  acne scars treatment, or at least make them less visible. What strategy you need to use, to get rid of these scars, will depend upon how severe the scars are. Before you try anything, it is advisable to check with your dermatologist, as to what is the best course of action in your particular case. Anyways, here’s a list of a few methods that are usually used to remove acne scars.

Do it at home

If the scarring is mild, there are several procedures that you can carry out at home to get rid of these acne scars. There are specially formulated products which are easily available at most drugstores and cosmetic stores. There are two most popular methods that you can use at home, the first one being derma-abrasion and the second one being chemical peels.

Whenever you go shopping for these products, just scan through the ingredient list, to be sure that the product contains either retinol or Alpha Hydroxy acid. However, people with sensitive skin must avoid both these methods because rashes and inflammation may occur. For milder and more natural alternatives, look for aloe Vera or Lavender based products, as both these natural ingredients are believed to reduce scars.

Professional methods

Laser resurfacing is one of the most popular methods that are used by skin care professionals, to remove acne-scars. The procedure involves removing old skin cells with a laser beam, to promote the growth of new skin cells. However, be cautioned that laser surfacing usually results in an uneven looking skin tone, especially so if your skin shade is darker. Apart from this little glitch, this method is quite promising and though you may experience some redness and inflammation for a few weeks, the acne scars will leave your skin permanently.

Professional derma-abrasion is another popular method, in which scrubbing machines are used to remove the damaged skin cells. Before the scrubbing, the skin is either numbed with local anesthesia or is frozen, to pass up the pain. It’s quite a fierce method and will leave your skin raw, inflamed and painful for several weeks after the treatment.
