Taking care of your skin is important. They key to getting smooth, wrinkle-free, youthful looking skin lies in cleaning, exfoliating and exercising your face on a daily basis.
The main idea behind having fresh feeling smooth skin is to remove the dead skin in order to make room for new skin. It’s that dead facial skin that makes your face feel heavy and rough. The only way you can get rid of it is by literally scrubbing it off. The first thing you’ll need is a good face wash. Facial washes remove natural oils and daily residues that form on your face throughout the day and while you sleep. When your face is clean, you are ready to exfoliate. When picking out an exfoliant, look for two major natural ingredients; kelp and salt from the sea. The salt carries the rough texture necessary to rub off the dead skin, and the kelp works as an antibiotic to leave your skin feeling healthy and revived. The nice thing about these two ingredients is that they are easily available to you, providing you with the option of making your own exfoliants at home. For every container of regular exfoliant, add 1/4 of a teaspoon of both the salt and kelp. When you’re finished with your product and are ready to apply, add a little water to your hands while you rub in the exfoliant. This will help it to spread across your face evenly.
The next part of your skin regimen can be done while moisturizing or applying any type of lotion to your face. Allow your fingers to work in circular motions around your face, basically giving yourself a massage. This will feel very nice and relaxing in addition to giving your skin a great workout. Here we’ll go over some mini exercises you can do with your face to give your skin the workout it needs to feel young and fresh. First, try making an oval shape with your mouth and pull your lips over your teeth, making a face similar to one you might make while applying lipstick.
While keeping your mouth stable, drag your fingers in circles around your eyes. Keeping your mouth in that position we’ll move in to our second exercise which targets the lower part of your face. Instead of drawing circles around your eyes, use your fingertips to make small massage circles around the lower half of your face. After a good massage, close your mouth and press tightly while smiling. Continue to massage around your mouth. This will firm up your smile and help prevent those little lines that grow out of our lips as we get older. Lastly, we’ll work out your neck muscles a bit by tucking your tongue all the way back in your mouth and pointing the bottom half of your face to the ceiling. When you move from left to right, you’ll give the front of your neck the stretch of a life time.
