Everybody wants beautiful skin, but not everybody has time for an intensive skin care routine. Fortunately, you can still make your skin something you can be proud of by perfecting the fundamentals. All it takes is a few minutes a day.

Stay Hydrated

One of the most effective things you can do is also one of the easiest: just keep yourself hydrated. Make sure you drink eight glasses of water or other liquid every day to keep your skin firm, smooth and beautiful.

Cleanse and Moisturize Daily

If your skin is dry and rough, then you need to be sure to clean it every day with a mild skin cleanser. Afterward, massage some moisturizer into it. Do not skip this step. The moisturizer improves your blood flow and the way your skin feels. You should also avoid long baths and hot showers, because they will just make your skin even drier. Never use harsh skin cleansers; they will just make the problem worse in the long run. Applying nourishing cream to all of your visible skin each evening before bed is also a good idea. If you do not want to use a store-bought nourishing cream, then you can easily make your own all natural version. Just mix together one egg, a teaspoon of honey, and a teaspoon of coconut oil.

Skin Care Routine for Dry, Oily or Combination Skin

While it is important to regularly cleanse your skin, it is equally important not to over-cleanse it. If you have problems with rashes and acne, you may be over-cleansing. Your skin acts as a natural barrier, keeping dirt and environmental pollution out of your body while keeping moisture in your body. Part of how the skin does its job is with natural oils in your skin. When you over-cleanse, you strip away those natural oils. If your skin feels taut or tight, this could be a sign of over-cleansing.

If you have greasy skin then you should try a different sort of cleansing regimen. Try washing your face gently with nothing more than tepid water twice a day. Use an oil-based cleanser once a day to drag the grease and grime out of your pores. If you moisturize, then use a moisturizer that is oil-free. Use only water-based cosmetics. If commercial products aren’t doing the job, you can try making your own ideal face wash by mixing one part cucumber pulp, one part honey, and one part cider vinegar. Stir in enough dry green tea leaves to make a thick paste.

If you have combination skin, with oily skin in some places and dry skin in other places, then you need a different skin care routine. Usually, the oily areas will be around your nose and on your forehead, while your cheeks are dry. Wash your face once in the morning and once at night. This will take care of the excessive oil. However, do not wash your face more often than that because the dry patches will only get worse. You will have to use two different skin cleansers for the different types of skin. Use cleansers made specially for greasy skin on the oily patches. Use only oil-free products on the dry patches.

Try a Toner for Rough Skin

If you suffer from rough skin, you can make it smoother with a common kitchen product. Scrub it with orange juice every day. Try combining tomato juice and lemon juice in equal amounts if you want your skin to have a more glowing look.

No matter what kind of skin you have, you can keep it looking its best by learning and perfecting the basics for your kind of skin. A proper skin care routine doesn’t require lengthy, complex regimens or expensive skin care products. All it takes is a few minutes a day and knowing the right ways to spend them.

Natural Products for Moisturizing African-American Hair

The search for all-natural, quality products that moisturize African-American hair may seem to be one that is never-ending. Many products are advertised as being natural and having moisturizing effects, when in fact, they cause more dryness and contain a huge list of synthetic chemicals. However, among the many choices are some natural products that actually work well in the battle against chronic dryness.

One of the best natural products for hair is vegetable glycerin. This substance is a derivative of plant oils. It is used as a sweetener and is present in numerous skin creams, soaps, lotions and hair products. When applied to hair, it acts as a humectant that absorbs water from its surroundings. When combined with water, vegetable glycerin does an excellent job of conditioning and moisturizing dry hair. It is also helpful in alleviating dry scalp and defines curls like no other product. To use this versatile material, mix it in a spray bottle with water and essential oils or conditioner.

For generations, people from different corners of the world have used coconut oil to maintain healthy hair. This oil is composed of small molecules and fatty acids that penetrate the hair shaft. It is also excellent for controlling dandruff and retaining high levels of moisture. To use this product on hair, apply it to the scalp and hair in small amounts. In addition, it is best to use pure, organic coconut oil instead of a hybrid product that is mixed with petroleum.

Argan oil has been used by the Moroccan people for hundreds of years. It is revered for its rich vitamin and fatty acid content. This oil is used in a wide array of cosmetic products and medicinal preparations. It comes from the argan tree that is native to Morocco and is traditionally used in cooking. In recent years, this product has become very popular in Western cultures. As a result, both the demand and price tag have risen. Despite its unappealing price, it is one natural hair care product that is worth the money. When applied to hair in small amounts, it is absorbed instantly to leave a silky finish.

Natural hair care products are ideal for nourishing and moisturizing African-American coils. They provide a host of benefits without the harmful effects caused by toxic chemicals. There is no single product that works for everyone, so if one natural product does not suit your needs, try the next.
