8 Secrets to Getting Great Skin

Secret #1: Do what your mom always told you to do. “Sun protection is essential for nice skin. If you smoke, quit. Eat blueberries and other fruits with rich color, which are full of antioxidants. Deep red, yellow and green vegetables are also good. Despite the warnings about mercury and other contaminants, I think fish, with its oils, is very healthy. Stay hydrated. Don’t overdo alcohol and caffeine. And, yes, get enough sleep. Most of us do not.”

Secret #2: Don’t have model envy: A slim bod doesn’t necessarily mean it’s cellulite-free. “Cellulite is caused when little bits of fatty tissue push through the fibrous connective-tissue lattice that is part of the normal structure of our [skin],” says Dr. Gordon. “The fatty tissue itself is soft, and the fibrous connective tissue is tough. So you can think of it as the soft fat popping through the open spaces between the strands of fibrous tissue. No matter the body shape, even little bits of fat can push their way through.” Long story short: Fatty tissue—aka cellulite—can show up on all shapes and sizes, even Gisele-like frames.

Secret #3: Skip the salsa and chips; avoiding salty foods and other water-retention traps can help decrease the appearance of cellulite. “If you retain fluids, you may feel your cellulite is worse than if you don’t,” says Dr. Gordon. “The more fat there is and the boggier that soft fat is, the more likely it is to push through the connective tissue”—and show up as cellulite. Let’s hear it for low-sodium soy sauce!

Secret #4: Seek out a sweet exfoliator. “Harsh exfoliators may chafe the skin,” says Gordon. “I like a sugar scrub because it dissolves as you use it. For this reason, it’s hard to over-exfoliate with a well-made sugar scrub.” Check out the new soft, body-friendly line of St. Ives Moisturizing In-Shower Exfoliating Body Polishes.

Secret #5: Give your body H20 from head to toe. When you’re in the bath or shower, make good use of your awesome new exfoliator or body polish. After toweling off, apply a rich moisturizer while the skin is still damp.

Secret #6: Keep in mind that fancy-schmancy moisturizers may not be more effective. “These days a lot of high-tech engineering goes into the development of moisturizers. While moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter are good to look for, it’s not easy to identify the good—or bad—moisturizers by looking at ingredients alone,” advises Gordon, who recommends looking for a name you trust and price point you will feel comfortable using every day. “Ultimately, it is the daily use of a moisturizer that makes it effective,” she says.

Secret #7: Look for ingredients found in your favorite liquids. Green tea, which contains restorative antioxidants, can be found in many helpful skin-smoothing products, as can caffeine. “It’s just conjecture on my part,” says Dr. Gordon, “but it may be that caffeine constricts the tiny vessels in the skin and the slight local ‘dehydration’ that results prevents the fat from poking through.”

Secret #8: Slap on the SPF, even on non-beach days. “A lot of people don’t think they are getting sun unless they are lying on the beach,” says Dr. Gordon. “Many people look at me funny when I tell them that your skin doesn’t care if you get sun lying down or walking around.”

Protecting Your Skin From the Sun

Most skin cancer can be prevented. Use the following tips to protect your skin from the sun. You may decrease your chances of developing skin cancer and help prevent wrinkles.

Avoid sun exposure

The best way to prevent a sunburn is to avoid sun exposure.

Stay out of the midday sun (from 10 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon), which is the strongest sunlight. Find shade if you need to be outdoors. You can also calculate how much ultraviolet (UV) exposure you are getting by using the shadow rule: A shadow that is longer than you are means UV exposure is low; a shadow that is shorter than you are means the UV exposure is high.

Other ways to protect yourself from the sun include wearing protective clothing, such as:

Hats with wide 4 in. (10 cm) brims that cover your neck, ears, eyes, and scalp.
Sunglasses with UV ray protection, to prevent eye damage that may lead to cataracts.
Loose-fitting, tightly woven clothing that covers your arms and legs.
Clothing made with sun protective fabric. These clothes have a special label that tells you how effective they are in protecting your skin from ultraviolet rays.
Preventing sun exposure in children

You should start protecting your child from the sun when he or she is a baby. Because children spend a lot of time outdoors playing, they get most of their lifetime sun exposure in their first 18 years.

It's safest to keep babies younger than 6 months out of the sun. If you can't keep your baby out of the sun, cover your child's skin with hats and clothing. Protect any bare skin with a small amount of sunscreen.
Teach children the ABCs of how to protect their skin from getting sunburned.
A = Away. Stay away from the sun in the middle of the day (from 10 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon).
B = Block. Use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher to protect babies' and children's very sensitive skin.
C = Cover up. Wear clothing that covers the skin, hats with wide brims, and sunglasses with UV protection. Even children 1 year old should wear sunglasses with UV protection.
S = Speak out. Teach others to protect their skin from sun damage.

Sunscreen protection

If you can't avoid being in the sun, use a sunscreen to help protect your skin while you are in the sun.

Be sure to read the information on the sunscreen label about its SPF value and how much protection it gives your skin. Follow the directions on the label for applying the sunscreen so it is most effective in protecting your skin from the sun's ultraviolet rays.

Choosing a sunscreen

Sunscreens come in lotions, gels, creams, ointments, and sprays. Use a sunscreen that:
Has a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 or higher.
Says "broad-spectrum" that protects the skin from ultraviolet A and B (UVA and UVB) rays.
Use lip balm or cream that has SPF of 15 or higher to protect your lips from getting sunburned or developing cold sores.
Use a higher SPF at when you are near water, at higher elevations or in tropical climates. Sunscreen effectiveness is affected by the wind, humidity, and altitude.
Some sunscreens say they are water-resistant or waterproof and can protect for about 40 minutes in the sun if a person is doing a water activity.

Applying a sunscreen

Apply the sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going in the sun.
Apply sunscreen to all the skin that will be exposed to the sun, including the nose, ears, neck, scalp, and lips. Sunscreen needs to be applied evenly over the skin and in the amount recommended on the label. Most sunscreens are not completely effective because they are not applied correctly. It usually takes about 1 fl oz (30 mL) to cover an adult's body.
Apply sunscreen every 2 to 3 hours while in the sun and after swimming or sweating a lot. The SPF value decreases if a person sweats heavily or is in water, because water on the skin reduces the amount of protection the sunscreen provides. Wearing a T-shirt while swimming does not protect your skin unless sunscreen has also been applied to your skin under the T-shirt.
Other sunscreen tips

The following tips about sunscreen will help you use it more effectively:

Older adults should always use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 to protect their very sensitive skin.
If you have sensitive skin that burns easily, use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15.
If you have dry skin, use a cream or lotion sunscreen.
If you have oily skin or you work in dusty or sandy conditions, use a gel, which dries on the skin without leaving a film.
If your skin is sensitive to skin products or you have had a skin reaction (allergic reaction) to a sunscreen, use a sunscreen that is free of chemicals, para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), preservatives, perfumes, and alcohol.
If you are going to have high exposure to the sun, consider using a physical sunscreen (sunblock), such as zinc oxide, which will stop all sunlight from reaching the skin.
If you need to use sunscreen and insect repellent with DEET, do not use a product that combines the two. You can apply sunscreen first and then apply the insect repellent with DEET, but the sunscreen needs to be reapplied every 2 hours.

Do not use tanning booths to get a tan. Artificial tanning devices can cause skin damage and increase the risk of skin cancer.

How to Get Baby Soft Skin Quickly

One fast way to get baby soft skin is by applying good skin moisturizers to face, hands and never leaving it dry and un-moisturized. You can also buy creams and products for soft skin. To get silky smooth skin, naturally made home remedies like honey, cocoa butter, avocado and aloe vera can be used for providing moisture to skin. These tips can be used by both men and women to make skin soft and beautiful.

Steps for making skin soft

Avoid taking hot water baths.

Use cold or warm water for taking baths to lock moisture to skin. Taking a hot water bath strips the natural moisturizing oils from body, making skin dry and rough. During winters people often take very hot baths that lead to un moisturized and rough skin.

Use moisturizing soaps

Now the second step is to use good moisturizing soaps for cleaning the body. Unlike other soaps these products contain moisturizing properties that help in getting baby soft skin.

Apply moisturizing creams.

After taking a bath, now it’s time to apply a good moisturizing lotion or cream to your skin. After taking baths our skin becomes soft and hence it easily absorbs the moisture that is provided by these products. For sensitive skin type, use baby oils to get silky skin.

Protection against sun.

Protection against the sun is another important step that keeps our skin away from dryness. Use lotions with sun protection (at least 20 SPF) to provide a shield to skin against sun.

Clear dead and dry skin.

Exfoliate skin once a week to clean skin pores from dirt, oils, and dead skin cells. This method helps in removing roughness from the skin, making skin soft. But it also makes skin dry and hence remember to moisturize skin after you exfoliate. For getting more impressive results steam your skin first and then exfoliate. Steaming opens our skin pores and makes it easy for the exfoliating product to remove impurities quickly.

Massages to make skin soft.

Massaging ice increases the blood circulation and oxygen flow to the skin, making it more glowing and soft naturally. Massages also help to get a beautiful skin texture with improved flexibility.

Eat healthy foods.

Eat fresh fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins and minerals to keep skin healthy and nourished. Avoid eating oily and spicy foods to prevent acne breakouts. Also drink enough water so that your skin remains hydrated and moisturized from inside.

Moisturize your face.

Apply moisturizing lotions to hands, feet, knees and face before sleeping to make it silky. Leaving skin with these moisturizing products will make it ultra soft like a baby. Use vitamin e moisturizer with essential oil extracts. If you have oily skin then try to apply oil free or water based moisturizers

Honey massage for smooth skin.

Massage honey to skin for 10 minutes and leave it for another 10 minutes. This will help to retain water to skin, making it soft and beautiful. Honey can be mixed with lemon for removing impurities from the skin and making it smooth.

Aloe vera skin conditioner

Aloe vera is also an excellent skin conditioner that is used to get healthy skin. Aloe gel contains antioxidants and moisture that help in making skin soft and supple like a baby. Apply this gel to the skin and leave it for 10 minutes. Now wash it with cold or warm water.

Natural oil treatment.

Use skin softening oils like almond oil, coconut oil, olive oil for providing vitamin E to the skin and thus deeply moisturizing skin cells making it smooth. Take some coconut or olive oil in hands and apply it to skin before sleep. This a natural treatment used by many to make skin silky. In the morning with a good face wash clean your face and then again moisturize skin.

Avocado moisturizing paste.

Make a paste of avocado and apply it to your skin. Avocado has been widely used in skin smoothing products that provide moisture to skin. Apply its paste to the skin and wash it after 15 minutes for getting skin like a baby.

Honey and milk for baby soft skin.

Add honey to milk cream and apply it to the skin. After 20 minutes, wash it with warm water. Milk contains a good amount of nutrients that help in nourishing skin. Milk cream can also be directly applied to the skin for 20 minutes for getting smooth and silky skin on face and hands.

Cucumber to get rid of dry skin.

Mixture of cucumber and cocoa butter is very effective in making skin soft. This is because both these products contain lots of moisture that helps to remove dryness from skin. Moisture in cucumber gets absorbed by our skin cells and thus our skin becomes silky smooth.

Fruit hydration masks.

Apply banana to your skin and wash it after 20 minutes. Banana is rich in lots of vitamins and minerals that keep our skin fresh. Papaya face pack is also a best product for clearing dirt and moisturizing skin.

Use mayonnaise on face

Apply mayonnaise to your face and keep it for some time. Mayonnaise is used in many skin moisturizing products to get baby soft skin.

Tips for keeping face skin soft

After every bath remember to moisturize your body. Water tends to remove oils from the skin, which makes it rough and hence providing moisture keep skin soft.
Sun is also a major cause for dry and rough skin. To protect your skin use moisturizing lotions with sun protection to keep skin smooth.
Eat moisturizing foods with lots of water to keep body and skin hydrated.
Skin also needs to protected against cold weathers to prevent it from drying. You may have notice that during cold weathers your find dry white flakes on skin.

A Must-Do Night Skin Care Routine

After a busy day of work, raising children, and contact with harsh environmental conditions, our skin has been exposed to a lot of harmful elements. Over time this can result in damage to the skin and cause pre-mature aging. Because of the harm, it is important to take care of your skin. The benefits of a night skin care routine include improving skin tone and color, reducing skin blemishes, and hydrating and rejuvenating the skin. Establishing a night skin care routine will allow the skin to breathe, heal, and restore to a healthy young glow.                     

The following is a list of must-do tips for establishing a night care routine:

1. Makeup Remover: If you wear make up, the first step is to use a quality make-up remover to remove make up. This will ensure that all make up will be removed when you wash your face. Using an alcohol free toner will help restore the pH of the skin and remove any remaining oils and makeup. One can moisten a cotton ball and gently pat the toner over the face and neck. 

2. Facial Cleanse: Use a quality cleanser to clean your face. Gently massage the cleanser into the skin. Wash your face and neck thoroughly with warm water and the cleanser. When you have completed the face cleansing, make sure that you rinse the entire residue off thoroughly. Using a cleanser will remove any dirt and debris in and on the skin. Warm water will open the pours to allow dirt and bacteria to be released. It is also recommended that you use an exfoliate that will penetrate deeper and help remove blackheads. Gently pat your face dry and then apply Tea Tree Oil to any acne or acne prone areas.

3. Eye Cream: Because there are no oil glands around the eye, using an eye cream on the skin around the eye will replenish the skin and reduce puffiness and dark circles. Gently apply the cream under and around the eye.

4. Lip Care: Gently wash your lips with warm water on a soft cloth. This will remove any dry and dead skin. Apply a lip balm to soften and heal chapped lips.

5. Moisturizer: Use a quality moisturizer that will not irritate the skin. An all natural organic moisturizer is a good choice because they do not contain any chemicals or harsh additives. The type of moisturizer you use will depend on your skin type such as dry, sensitive, or oily skin. A good moisturizer will remove debris, dead skin cells and pollutants, soothe and rejuvenate the skin, nourish the skin with vitamins and minerals, maintain normal ph levels, and help with cell regeneration. Using a quality Serum helps protect collagen, reduce redness and discoloration, and reduces age spots, fine lines, brown spots, and wrinkles Both serums and moisturizers help bring new cells to the surface revealing a smoother and softer complexion.

Establishing a nightly skin care routine will only take about five minutes of your time. Because everyone has their own specific skin type, it is important to use products that match your skin’s sensitivity. By implementing a nightly care routine, your skin will maintain a youthful appearance longer as well as staying smooth, soft, clear, and most importantly, healthy.
