Who doesn’t want youthful and radiant looking skin?
Let’s start with understanding the skin. It is the largest organ of the body and serves as a protector from germs and bacteria. The thicker layers are in the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. With age, the elastin starts to diminish and wrinkles begin to form.
“Be sure to cleanse twice a day, morning and night,” Quandra suggests. If you have dry skin, utilizing a creamy cleanser is beneficial. Two separate cleansers can be utilized to protect the skin during the day and the other to treat and repair the skin at night.
Moisturizing is essential for all skin types. Those who have combination skin may need to utilize two types of moisturizers. There isn’t always a single or specific product for combination skin.
“Exfoliation helps with cell turnover and as we age, our skin regrowth slows down,” Quandra said.
Exfoliating regularly assists with looking young. Those with dry skin can use products with jojoba beads and lemon or coconut oil and baking soda. This can remove dead skin cells while hydrating at the same time. When dealing with acne-prone skin, a clay-based mask will dry the impurities and minimize pores. Consult with a licensed esthetician before committing to a skin regimen such as facials or chemical peels.
