Make Your Skin Care Work Harder For You

While we know that having and using the right skin care products will do wonders for your skin, one or two right techniques will amp up your skin and make it beautiful even further.  Here’s how; read on and keep it as your own secret. And yes, the good thing about these tips that it had nothing to do with using high end brands because if you’re doing it wrong,  you ain’t get any results.  Period.  Although we don’t deny that pricey ones is likely to work more effective but that will be another topic. Okay, let’s begin with the very first product: the cleanser.  Squirt only the size of 20 cents, massage with your palms a bit (just to spread the product all over your hand for easy cleaning)  and apply onto your skin in circular motion, concentrating on congested area like nose, chin, and forehead to aid detoxing. Rinse with warm water, followed by a light splash of cool water to close up opened pores. Pat dry and wait for a minute Despite what some say that a toner is unnecessary. A toner is actually essential if you want a thorough cleaning and to help the next products work effectively. Saturate a cotton pad with a toner, sweep away in upward motion, beginning from the chin towards the forehead. End the routine by using a dry cotton pad to absorb the excess. If not, the excess toner will evaporate, drawing out the moisture on your skin, leaving it more dehydrated. If you’re using a serum, you deserve a pat on the back but if you don’t, I suggest you get one because serum is a must have even if you’re under 30. As a serum is super concentrated, you need just a tiny bit (perhaps like a 5 cents in size) for the whole face. Apply with a circular motion until it’s fully absorbed. Wait for a minute to be sure, before continuing on to the next step. We’re guilty of this, but applying eye cream should be before the moisturizer, not the other way around. The skin in the eye area is much thinner than the rest of your face so the product is lighter. Simply dab a grain of rice sized of eye cream with your ring finger and dab in tapping motion around the eye socket until fully absorbed. And now, the last routine...

Why You Gotta Love Glycolic Peels

Psst… If I could tell you that you can do glycolic peels at home, with much more affordable cost, would you be interested? I bet you are, because getting them done at beauty spas is way expensive that getting it regularly seems impractical (not to mention costly). Well, if the money factor is what has been setting you off in the first place, read on this piece and I will tell you how exactly you can do pampered peels right in the comfort of your home. I’m not kidding, you can save hundreds of dollars and your skin still looks good to rival results made in spas. Keep in mind though, some peels may work while some is not for your skin – a simple step of caution, along with a little help from your dermatologist is highly recommended. Glycolic peels works by ‘melting’ the glue that binds skin cells in the topmost surface of your skin, to make room for new skin to emerge, which translates a brighter, smoother, flawless, and softer skin. Repeated use of the peels will also help for collagen growth in the dermis layer, resulting a firmer skin (bye-bye sagging skin!). What you should know with glycolic peels is that this kind of treatment creates a cumulative effect – you need to do at least six to eight peels, spaced between one to two weeks – for the skin to really shows up the positive effects. Although, I’m happy to add that it depends on other factors as well, like the percentage of glycolic acid strength use in each treatment, and how well you care for your skin, post op. But that’s not to say that you should jump up to 100% glycolic acid for your first ever home treatment! And we don’t want your skin to rub raw and oozing blood. For at home use, it’s best for you to start with 20% (maximum) of glycolic strength with a pH of 2.8 to 3 and see how your skin reacts with it. Remember, this thing is acid, so proceed with caution as you would in a lab. Begin by treating a small spot on the forearm (using the same concentration and pH as you would on the face). Wait for a couple of minutes until your skin turns pinkish to neutralize the acid. Test if your skin is itchy or stingy, which means...
