What should a consistent skincare routine look like? Well, this will differ based on your skin tone, but typically this includes: • Gentle cleanser used daily • Toner used daily • Moisturizer used daily • Gentle exfoliator used twice weekly • Face oil used daily • Facial serum vitamin C used daily
For a consistent skincare regimen that is right for your skin type, you should speak to your dermatologist.
At what age does the skin lose its elasticity?
Collagen production begins to decline around 25 years of age, decreasing by about 1-2% per year thereafter. The skin begins to noticeably lose its elasticity between the ages of 30 and 40 and particularly in the first five years of menopause, when women’s skin loses about 30% of its collagen. Men and women lose collagen at about the same rate initially, but then women lose it faster after menopause for about five years, but the rate then slows down again. Men’s skin ages gradually, on the contrary. How quickly skin loses elasticity varies slightly from person to person, however, depending on genetics and lifestyle.
Yes! Damn. Increasing your stores of collagen and elastin (and also hyaluronic acid) will help repair your skin’s loss of elasticity. Doing so in the long run will prevent further loss and encourage good skin elasticity in the future. Luckily, there are many ways to do this, from skin care and treatments to managing lifestyle factors, prioritizing good sleep, exercise, nutrition and sun protection.
DIY Tan Removal Facial Every Weekend
To remove facial tan and brighten skin complexion, you may prefer weekend facials week. This would get rid of any excess dead skin cells present on the surface of the skin and helps in revealing the original glow. Performing a facial routine yourself is not a difficult task. All you need is a facial cleanser, scrub, face pack, toner, and moisturizer. You have to choose them according to your skin type, whether it is oily, dry or sensitive.
Clean your face without traces of oil, makeup residue and the like. Apply a good face scrub and exfoliate your face skin. This process would open up the pores of the skin and helps in better penetration of the face pack. After the scrub, wash your face and spread the compress evenly over your face and neck. I highly recommend a face pack to remove the tan for this. There are many face packs available on the market today to remove the tan; choose the one that suits your skin best. Alternatively you can also combine a teaspoon of full earth with a teaspoon of sandalwood powder, half a teaspoon of tulsi (basil) paste, the requisite rose water and a few drops of glycerin to create a mud pack to remove the tan in minutes. This would work wonders on your skin! After using the face pack, pat the toner and moisturize the skin. You’re done with your quick and natural weekend facial tan remover DIY.
