Looking after Your Facial Skin

The skin on your face is constantly exposed to the elements and as such requires special care.

Skin Care Essentials:

Protection from the Sun

If you live a in sunny area – sun protection is a must. Using a sunscreen of at least Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 15 can help protect your face from premature aging, age spots and wrinkling.


Of course, smoking is generally not good for you, or your skin. It starves your body of oxygen and essential blood.

Dehydrating Drinks

Although that sounds a contraction in terms, drinks containing a lot of caffeine, such as coffee, tea, some sodas, or alcoholic drinks have a significant diuretic effect on your body. You can become dehydrated – which takes water from your skin. Drinking plenty of water helps keep you and your skin suitably moisturised.


There are thousands of skin care products on the market today. Finding a good moisturizer can be a great help in your quest to keep your skin healthy and firm. Your local cosmetics store should be able to offer sensible advice on finding a suitable product.

Gentle Washing

Gently cleaning off the dirt and pollution of everyday life as soon as you can will help you maintain a great complexion. Try and find a simple soap that does not dry your skin out too much.
