General tips for your skin: 

  1. Get enough sleep.

  2. Eat healthy.

  3. Limit your caffeine consumption.

  4. Use sunscreen every day.

  5. Wear sunglasses to avoid squinting.

  6. Don't go to tanning salons.

  7. Establish a nighttime skin care ritual.

  8. Use the right skin care products.

  9. Don't smoke.

  10. Consider anti-wrinkle creams.


 

1.Protect your skin

Changes induced by sunlight are the major factor in causing alterations in the skin that contribute to the appearance of aging. Sunscreens and sun blocking agents can prevent or retard these changes. Efforts to protect the skin from harsh chemicals and physical agents (cold, wind, extreme dryness..) that may damage the skin are also sensible and desirable.  

 

2.Clean and clear 


Start by cleansing dry or sensitive skin with a gentle, non-stripping gel cleanser. If you have oily, acne-prone skin, find a gentle gel formula that's made specifically for your skin type, and follow with a non-alcoholic toner. Those containing alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) work especially well to help smooth the skinís texture.
 

On days when you really need to exfoliate, use a gentle, grainy scrub (skip this step if you've got sensitive skin). If you've got oily skin, you'll want to exfoliate twice weekly, concentrating on blackhead-prone areas like the nose and chin.

 

3.Nutrition 

The normal epidermis, hair follicles, and nail matrices receive their nutrition from the cutaneous vasculature, and there is no evidence that any topically applied "nutrient" can enhance their performance.

 

4.Hydration
  • Using a rich moisturizer is the next step. If you have an oily skin, it's better to use an oil-free cream. Hydration is especially important in winters. 
  • Avoid taking long, hot baths in wintertime. If you don't want to give up hot baths, use bath oil.
  • Drink plenty of fluids. You won't have supple skin if you are dehydrated.
  • If your lips start to feel dry, resist the temptation to lick them. Saliva is not a moisturizer. It removes oil and makes your lips even drier. Instead, you should use lip balm or petroleum jelly. Smoking makes lips dry, too.

 

5. Skin care in winter

You need to adjust your skin care and moisturizing routine to protect your skin from becoming dry and itchy during the winter. This isn't just a cosmetic or comfort issue. Severely dry skin  become less effective as a barrier against infection. Cold, dry winter air, low humidity caused by indoor heating, and hot showers and baths are all factors that rob your skin of moisture during the winter.

  • Don't overuse products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids. They exfoliate the top layer of skin, which is good for dry skin, but they also leave a new layer of skin that has no protection against bitter winter weather.
  • Use a sunscreen with at least SPF 15 during the winter to protect yourself from snow-reflected ultraviolet light. Don't forget to use lip balm with sunscreen to protect your lips.
  • Limit showers to 10 to 15 minutes. Use bath oils if you do take a hot bath. Use mild soaps. Deodorant soaps are more likely to dry your skin.
  • Put moisturizer on your skin immediately after a bath or shower, while your skin is still wet. It helps trap moisture in your upper skin layers.
  • After you wash your hands, use hand cream to seal in moisture.
  • Use a humidifier in your home to keep humidity levels higher during winter.

  

Eye Contour

Eyes plays a pivotal role in our beauty and skin problems on the eye contours including periorbital darkening, wrinkling and eye puffiness are among the common cosmetic problems.  Uunfortunately,  there is no cream which can do a magic for your periorbital skin, but there are a few tips which might be helpful for you;

Periorbital darkening is one of the most common cosmetic concerns. Heredity plays a great role in this issue and indeed, in many people with coffee-colored skin, periorbital darkening is a genetic trait. It should be kept in mind that some systemic disease such as thyroid diseases may present with periorbital darkening. Also, it might be a manifestation of atopic dermatitis. Furthermore, dehydration, sleep disorders, smoking and exhaustion make this darkening worse. 

Puffiness of the skin under your eyes can result from a number of causes, including:

  • Heredity
  • Fluid retention such as due to changes in weather or hormone levels
  • Allergies or dermatitis, especially if puffiness is accompanied by redness and itching

Under-eye puffiness is usually only a temporary cosmetic concern and rarely a sign of a serious underlying medical condition. Some tips for reducing mild under-eye puffiness:

  • Raise the head of your bed at night. This helps prevent fluids from accumulating around your eyes as you sleep.
  • While sitting up, apply a cool tap water compress to the skin under your eyes for a few minutes. You can also use chilled cucumber slices, a refrigerated gel mask or chilled, damp tea bags.

If puffiness is severe and persistent or you notice swelling (edema) in other parts of your body, see your doctor. He or she will want to rule out other possible causes of swelling, such as kidney or thyroid problems or a side effect of medications.
