Daily Care for Radiant Skin - Normal Skin - iVillage Beauty Skin Clinic

Cleanse properly.

Wash your face with water and a mild cleanser twice a day. A gentle and thorough cleaning helps to remove the dead skin cells off the skin's top layer, along with excess oils and bacteria. These culprits cause pimples. Antibacterial soaps are good choices for acne sufferers for fighting bacteria, but they can be irritating to facial skin. Unless there is a medical reason, it's best to stay away from antibacterial soaps on a daily basis.

 

Exercise.

It improves the circulation of the blood, increasing oxygen in the skin. Oxygen boosts your skin's natural collagen building and increases skin regeneration. Both of these processes lead to healthier, more radiant skin.

 

Wear sunglasses.

The skin around your eyes is the most sensitive area of your face. Wearing sunglasses will protect this vital area from the sun, and they will prevent you from squinting in bright light, which contributes its share to fine lines and wrinkling.

 

Drink plenty of water.

This helps keep your skin hydrated. The good thing about moist skin is it's stronger and more resilient than dry skin. Drinking water is especially important during and after exercising, as you will be losing extra fluids from sweating.

 

Less is more.

Be gentle with your skin. The fewer products you put on your face, the better.
