How to Take Care of Your Skin?
By now you’ve heard that our Valentine’s Day sale is underway and our wellness kit is on sale with bamboo pads FREE with purchase, yep, I said that to let you know just how serious we take skincare. Our mission here at Clean Beauty is to offer clients an in-depth look at how to evolve their intelligence when it comes to skincare by being mindful of the ingredients found in their products to using products that can produce results from one line versus many. And so, we begin, how do you take care of your skin? Well for starters, we need to explore the most important thing, what is skin? The skin is the largest organ of the body, with a total area of 20 square feet. The skin protects us from microbes and the elements help regulate body temperature and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold.
It is because the skin is the largest organ of the body that we wish to take the utmost care of it where and when we can. Taking care of your skin does not mean spending thousands of dollars to nourish it, it simply means taking the time to review the products you choose to use daily. Here at clean beauty, we cannot stress enough the importance of sunscreen on the face and body. Applying sunscreen with at least 30 SPF 15 minutes before heading outdoors can have a positive impact on the skin. Cleansing, serums, moisturizers, and retinol are all highly significant to helping your skin to benefit and glow.

Water. Why is this so important? Without plenty of water to quench your thirst, you would get dehydrated. Not drinking enough water can leave your skin looking cracked, dry, and overall unpleasant. Not only that but for women, drinking water is essential for our PH balance and to help with the reduction of wrinkles. When your skin dries out, it is often left with small spots and tiny contorts. We have enough problems trying to find the best products for our face, do we need to create problems for our skin, too? The answer is no.
A healthy diet. Did you know that your food selection can most definitely have an impact on your skin’s appearance? Consuming fruits and vegetables regularly can bring change to your usual semblance. Additionally, you want to refrain from consuming too many dairy products. Researchers have shown that some components of milk are associated with testosterone hormones that can stimulate oil glands – a catalyst leading to a detrimental effect on your skin. The effect can range from some small invisible dots to some visible acne-like cysts.
Another tip is to apply your products in order. According to a Harvard University dermatologist, whatever you apply first is what is going to penetrate first. Note, if you are dealing with more than one problem with your skin, like sunspots and wrinkles, applying lotion for only one problem would not be ideal. The solution is to use one in the am and another in the pm as applying them both at the same time does not have the same impact and will not do you justice. Our last recommendation is to simply get into the habit of DIY products. Sometimes the best solutions are right in your kitchen – olive oil, lemon, sugar, cucumber, and honey can be used by just about anyone. Cucumber can be used to clean your skin before applying a specific paste to your complexion.
Remember when we mentioned the importance of knowing what ingredients are in the products you use, well, one of the most common ones to avoid is alcohol-based astringent and moisturizers after washing. The above can leave your skin dry and uncomfortable. We suggest a moisturizer that will leave your skin feeling plumped and hydrated. Check out our moisturizing collection here.
