Different Skin Types and Their Care

1. Dry skin

To avoid any sort of skin problem, one should drink at least eight to ten glasses of water a day to keep dry skin well hydrated. Along with it, eat a high quality healthy diet rich in fresh fruits, nuts and vegetables; get some exercise and the secret 8-hour sleep daily to get a healthy skin.

Home remedies for dry skin :

– Do not expose yourself to sun too much, as well as to too much air conditioning.

– Reduce how often you wash your face to maximum two times a day, and if possible use slightly tepid water.

– Avoid caffeine and alcohol as they cause dehydration. Also do not smoke, as smoking deprives the skin of oxygen and nutrients making it dry and flaky.

– Avoid using a commercial highly perfumed soap. Instead, use non-detergent, neutral-pH products to cleanse your skin.

– Massage your face every night before sleeping with a good hydrating moisturizer, and be generous in the areas surrounding the eyes.

– For cracked skin on fingers and feet, use a cream rich in vitamin E and aloe vera. Massage in well.

2. Oily skin

Oily skin is the least vulnerable, and it ages least of all. The best thing to do is to take measures to keep the skin pores from being clogged and forming acne.

– Follow strictly the experts’ advice – clean your face two to three times daily with a good medicated soap, one, which works well with your skin.

– It is best to use water based non-comedogenic product that effortlessly and effectively dissolves sebum.

– Use an oil free moisturizer to maintain a shine free complexion. It will also help if you use tepid water to clean face as it loosens the dirt easily.

– Before applying make-up, use an antiseptic day cream which contains benzyl peroxide as it reduces sebaceous secretions.

Home remedies for oily skin :

– Cucumber juice works great on oily skin. Before applying make-up, rub it on the excessively oily parts of your face and dry it thoroughly.

– It is very important that you definitely remove all make up before going to bed. Gram flour mixed with curd acts as an effective cleansing milk which cleans open pores.

– Be cautious about your diet if you have an oily skin! Go for a protein rich diet, but restricted in sugar and salt. Take plenty of leafy green vegetables and fresh fruits. Cut down on animal fat, fatty foods, alcohol and junk food.

– It is advised that you reduce consumption of iodized salt.

– Do not miss out on the 8-10 glasses of water daily to keep the skin hydrated and to flush out toxins.

– Exercise is also a must. Exercise works magical on any skin as it boosts circulation, encourages blood flow, and cleans the skin from within.

3. Sensitive skin

This is a very unpredictable skin type, and one needs to be extra cautious while dealing with it. Almost anything and everything can react to it.

– It is always advised to use the simplest and purest products – colour free, alcohol free, fragrance free and preservatives – a complete no-no.

– If using any new cosmetic, it is very important that you patch test it on your skin three to four times initially. The best parts are small areas like behind your ear or on hands. Go for it only if there is no skin reaction.

– Limit exposure to sun. While going out it is important to use a sun block because sensitive skin can easily get discoloured or age spots may appear. Use a sunscreen with only physical ingredients such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, which deflects the UV rays rather than absorb them.

– Try to use only natural or homemade products – they are best. Fresh and natural!!

– If you have sensitive skin, keep skin clean always. Wash your face maximum twice a day with a natural pH balanced cleanser.

– If going to a party, use only those cosmetics, which are hypo-allergenic and non-comedogenic.

– Always use cosmetics that do not contain many ingredients. The more the number of ingredients, the more the probability of it causing a reaction.

– Do not forget to drink plenty of water to detox for making your skin glow.

– Eat a well balanced diet that includes fresh fruits, green vegetables and nuts.

– Daily exercise to get that radiant glow from inside

– While washing face, avoid steam or very hot water. Hot baths and steams lead to broken capillaries.
