Healthy Skin Tips: Be Ravishing In 2012

The New Year is almost upon us.  So, what better time to think about getting a healthy skin?  It’s the time to take stock after all those parties of the pre-Christmas and Christmas season.  Did you arrive home late and not bother to cleanse properly?  Did you fail to live up to your aim of eating sensibly during this traditional time of over-indulgence?  If the answer is ‘yes’ to those questions, all is not lost. There is plenty of information on this website giving you tips to beautiful skin.

You can also join the hundreds of people who will be starting a sensible health and fitness regime on 1 January.  To give you a head start, now is the ideal opportunity to consider whether it would benefit you to take a nutritional health supplement to make sure you are prepared to face all that 2012 has in store for you.

You might also be thinking that your skin looks a bit ‘pasty’.  The best solution for that is to consider one of the modern sunless tan lotions that are now available.  This website provides tips to get that tan right.  If you are also being tempted by the adverts for holidays that are now appearing on our television screens, this would give you a head-start when you take your well-earned break.

Best wishes for 2012.

My Personal Healthy Skin Tips

 

 
My mother always laughed when I talked to her about the latest beauty product I had found and asked her for tips to beautiful skin. She had always washed with soap and water and had never used any face creams. Right into her eighties, she still had good skin – though obviously she hadn’t worried about trying to stop the wrinkles!
I am not so lucky and my skin gets dry easily. It is also quite sensitive – I learnt the hard way not to use strong soap if I didn’t want a puffy face! I don’t have a complicated skin routine. However, I am in my 50s and have managed to delay too many of the dreaded wrinkles so I assume I am doing something right. My healthy skin tips are simple and nothing we haven’t all heard before. These tips are:

  • Eat well – follow advice about healthy eating and drinking;
  • Protect your skin from the sun all the time, not just when you are sunbathing;
  • If you want a tan, read about tips for fake tanning and use of sunless tan lotions on this website;
  • Cleanse thoroughly with a gentle cleanser – even if you are really tired before you go to bed;
  • Find a moisturiser that suits you and use it;
  • Use a dedicated moisturiser around the eye area and be careful when applying – ‘be gentle’ is the order of the day.

There are no magic solutions and we are all different. However, we do all owe it to ourselves to look after our skin so, if you haven’t done so already, develop a routine that suits you and stick to it.

Selecting A Healthy Makeup For Skin

Many people now understand that using an all natural makeup rather than the more common chemical cosmetics benefits the skin.

The best makeup for your skin uses natural ingredients, which work with the skin rather than simply cover blemishes like so many other cosmetics. As a healthy skin makes you look good anyway, this means you are more likely to look at your best.

Equally a good brand of mineral makeup will be available in subtle shades: this makes it easier to achieve that holy grail of skincare – the natural look. A good beauty regime emphasizes the shape of your face, the attractive features we all have and helps give your skin the glow it needs. The key is to do all this without looking like you are wearing makeup at all.

The right cosmetics will be from an all natural makeup range containing fine mineral powders from natural sources. Unfortunately many brands contain talc, fragrances, alcohol and artificial dyes that often react with the skin and, as a result, a significant number of women feel they cannot wear makeup at all.

If you do have a problem wearing makeup it would be worth your while trying a good all natural makeup – you may well be surprised at the results.

Why not begin your search by looking at the great range of natural makeup to be found at LookRavishing.com?

How The View Of Sunless Tan Lotions Has Changed

How times have changed……..thank goodness!

I can remember classmates using sunless tan lotions when I was at secondary school. They weren’t very skilled at applying the lotion and the end result was usually an uneven orange hue, in the main on their legs.

It was embarrassing for the person who had to turn up for school realising how they looked. And the rest of us were ready to offer them tips for fake tanning. It wasn’t trendy to use sunless tan lotions and they were mostly used by people who weren’t going to be lucky enough to get away for a sun-filled holiday.

Those were the days before we worried about the effects of the sun on our skin. Now, we know about the potential dangers of basking in the sun in order to get a ‘real’ tan. So, those gaining their tan from a bottle can feel quite virtuous. They can also be very grateful that science has moved on and the products themselves are so much more sophisticated. Now, a wide range of people are happy to use them. We don’t know how many people in the public eye have used sunless tan lotions so they can look tanned all year round.

For some reason, there seems to be a general view that tanned skin looks good. It’s great that we now have easy access to products that will enable us to achieve the look we want without damaging our health.

Sunless Tan Lotions: Using Fake Tan Products

 

 
The best sunless tan lotions when used properly completely remove the need to expose yourself to harmful the ultra-violet rays of the sun. It could be said that such lotions are thus a timesaver, money saver and health saver.

You no longer have to spend large amounts of money travelling around the world to find the sun, nor do you then have to spend hours lying in the sun. Of course many of us enjoy doing so but sunless tan lotions remove the need if we just want the tan without the long periods of sunbathing.

Tanning lotions work by triggering the production of melanin, the natural substance that enables the darkening of the skins pigment. This is achieved without the risks of melanoma or skin cancer.

Some of the better sunless tan lotions and all natural cosmetics further help your skin health by containing a sunblock to prevent sunburn.

A sign of a good quality tanning lotion is also the inclusion of a moisturiser. Environmental factors can dry out the skin, even without the influence of the sun but add in the ultra violet rays from the sun, and the problem is exacerbated. Sun worshippers frequently suffer from flaky and cracked skin leading to premature ageing.

Taking the risks of staying too long in the sun together with the benefits of using quality tanning lotions, it is difficult to see why anyone would use anything other than a good fake tan product to get a brown skin.
