Skin care tips for healthy skin


The right skin care can keep your skin healthy, younger and glowing. This includes sun screen and gentle cleansing. Even if you don’t have time for intensive skin care, you can still pamper your skin by doing the right things. Good skin care and healthy lifestyle can tremendously help delay natural aging and prevent various skin issues. Here are eight tips to get you started.

  1. Treat your skin gently

Cleansing and shaving on daily basis can take a toll on your skin. To avoid this happening, take it gently while cleaning or shaving as mentioned below:

  • Avoid strong soaps. Strong soaps and detergents can remove oil from your skin thereby making your skin look rough. Instead, go for mild soaps and cleansers.
  • Moisturize skin when dry. Use a moisturizer that fits your skin type when your skin is dry. Use a moisturizer that contains SPF for daily use.
  • Limit bath time. Hot water and long baths remove oils from your skin. Because of this, limit your bath or shower time and use warm instead of hot water.
  • Always Shave carefully. In order to protect and lubricate your skin before shaving, apply shaving cream, lotion or gel. For the best shave, use a clean, sharp razor.and shave in the direction the hair grows, not against it to prevent razor bumps and burns.
  • Pat dry. After washing or bathing with Purec Egyptian Shower gel or soap, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin.
  1. Protect yourself from the sun

One of the best ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin abnormalities, as well as increase the risk of skin cancer.

Do these for the most complete sun protection:

  • Always use sunscreen.Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 and above when in the sun. Apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every two hours on extreme sunlight.
  • Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants and wide-brimmed hats when in the sun. Also consider laundry additives, which give clothing an additional layer of ultraviolet protection for a certain number of washings, or special sun-protective clothing which is specifically designed to block ultraviolet rays.
  • Stay under shade: Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun’s rays are strongest.
  1. Eat a healthy, balanced diet to promote skin health

A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. The association between diet and acne isn’t clear, but some research suggests that a diet rich in fish oil or fish oil supplements and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to help keep your skin hydrated. Avoid greasy and sugary foods, which can cause inflammation.

  1. Avoid smoking to prevent premature skin aging

Smoking makes your skin appear older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow and makes skin look pale. This also depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important for healthy skin.

Smoking also damages collagen and elastin which is the fibres that give your skin strength and elasticity. In addition, the repetitive facial expressions you make when smoking, such as pursing your lips when inhaling and squinting your eyes to keep out smoke can contribute to wrinkles.

Moreso, smoking increases your risk of squamous cell skin cancer. If you smoke, the best way to protect your skin is to quit. If you’re not sure how to stop, talk to your doctor. They can give you advice or prescribe medications that can help.

  1. Manage stress

Too much stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin abnormalities. To encourage healthy skin and a healthy state of mind, take steps to manage your stress. Get enough sleep, at least 7-8 hours in the night, set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. The results might be more rewarding than you expect.

  1. Exfoliate your skin gently 2-3 times a week

If your skin tends to get flaky or uneven, a little gentle exfoliation with Purec Egyptian Body Scrub can help. However, don’t do it every day or use harsh scrubs, since this can damage your skin and even lead to breakouts. Apply a gentle exfoliating wash, such as an oatmeal-based exfoliant, with your fingertips. Use small, gentle, circular motions. Rinse the exfoliant away with warm water when you’re done.

  1. Apply tea tree oil to blemishes to reduce inflammation

Tea tree oil can help fight bacteria and soothe inflammation, making it a powerful natural remedy for acne and other skin conditions.If you struggle with acne or blotchy, uneven skin, grab some tea tree oil from your pharmacy or beauty supply store. Dilute 2-3 drops in 1 teaspoon (4.9 mL) of a gentle carrier oil, such as jojoba or olive oil. Gently apply it to any blemishes or inflamed areas once a day with a cotton swab or your fingertips.

Tea tree oil tends to have fewer side effects than most over-the-counter acne medications. However, it may irritate some people’s skin. Always test it on another part of your body, such as the back of your knee or behind your ear, and wait a few hours to see if you experience any negative effects before putting it on your face.

Tea tree oil is toxic when ingested. Never eat or drink it.

  1. Exercise Regularly

Exercise helps increase blood flow, drawing oxygen into and free radicals away from the skin. Exercise also helps decrease stress and improve sleep quality. Make sure to wash your face after sweaty workouts.


Is Skin aging reversible?

Common skin changes that appear gradually as you age include age spots, freckles, discoloured blotches, wrinkles, shallowness, roughness, very dry skin and leathery toughness. Some people develop scaly patches, skin tags, or bright red or purple raised bumps (cherry angiomas), which might be bothersome but are usually harmless.

Some skin changes, such as fine wrinkles from sun damage, may be reversed by treatment with retinoic acid. This treatment can also improve your skin’s texture, reduce discoloration and increase collagen. Other effects of aging aren’t reversible. But they may be treatable. For example, you may choose to have a rough patch or skin tag removed for cosmetic reasons. Or you could talk with your doctor about procedures for smoothing wrinkles and improving the appearance of your skin.

You can also prevent or slow further changes by having good sun protection habits and by quitting smoking completely if you’re a smoker.

Some skin changes may be early signs of skin cancer. Talk with your doctor about whether you need to have them removed or checked regularly
