Beauty For Life

How to Love Your Skin

 

 women with healthy skin

Your skin is the body's largest organ. It weighs between two and four kilos, covers between one and two square metres and completely renews itself every seven to ten weeks, with approximately five million dead skin cells rubbing off on a daily basis.

 

Your skin reflects your state of health and your biological age, being soft and smooth when well-cared for, or dry and flaky when taken for granted.  

 

To be the proud owner of beautiful, soft, young-looking skin, you need to take care of it. When taking care of your skin, it's vital that you take care of the part of you that everybody sees - your face and neck.
The absolute golden rule, before you start using products on the delicate skin of your face, is to determine your skin type...

 

Normal and combination skin

Dry and sensitive skin

Oily skin

Slight oily sheen in the T-zone area

Drier cheek area

Occasional pimples and spots

Fine, dry lines around the eyes and mouth, dehydration lines on fact

Cheek area is dull, dry and taut

Skin that's very sensitive to sun, wind and pollution

Oil sheen in T-zone area and on cheeks

Enlarged pores and blackheads evident

Frequent pimples and spots

 

So, how can you help keep your skin looking and feeling young?
