Normal skin does not require too much of maintenance. The daily routine of cleansing, toning and moisturizing in the morning and before retiring to bed is enough to maintain skin clean and clear.
However, the city life and environmental pollution is taking away the sheen from skin. Often we ignore the need of hygienic and healthy diet and gorge on junk food. Besides, the hormonal disturbances and aging make the skin loose its elasticity and natural shine. Therefore it is essential to follow a daily beauty regime so that the skin looks forever young and soft come what may.
To combat the adverse effects of pollution and dust, the weekly use of exfoliation cream is must. It removes dead cells, excess oil and dirt from the skin and rejuvenates. To exfoliate rub the scrub gently on the face and neck in circular movements and then wash off. Massage a good moisturizer after drying the skin.
A word of precaution is needed to be mentioned that excessive washing may make the skin dry and rough.
In addition, always apply a good sunscreen of SPF15 to 30 before moving out in sun. It is important in winter also as harmful rays can still damage your skin.The products chosen should specifically mention the skin type.
Another useful tip for normal skin maintenance is to use a good night cream which can repair and heal the skin overnight. Stress, hormonal imbalance, weather changes cause the skin to mature before time. The signs of aging like fine lines and sagging of skin can make the skin look older and dull. Here, the use of night cream before sleeping will help in restoring the natural goodness and beauty of normal skin.
