Skin is our largest organ and it is not always the easiest thing to take care of, especially now wearing masks daily and trying to keep care. Here are some simple tips on how to maintain that healthy glow and stave off nasty skin issues.
1. Use skin care products that match your skin's needs.
What's your skin type — oily, dry, normal, combination, or sensitive? Do you have a skin condition? Using products formulated for your skin's needs will help your skin look and feel its best.
2. Resist the urge to scrub your skin clean.
If you've been sweating heavily or have a serious acne flare, it may seem natural to scrub your skin. Don't! Scrubbing irritates your skin, which can worsen any skin condition, including acne. Cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser or soap like our Infused soap. Moisturize with lightweight, natural products like our Nearly Naked Cream.
3. Wash your face when waking, before bed, and after sweating.
Washing when you wake up removes the dirt and bacteria that settle on your face while sleeping. Before bed, you want to remove makeup and grime, such as smog, smoke, or dirt, which may have landed on your skin.
4. Gently wash your face.
Gentle cleansing helps skin look its best. To gently cleanse your face, wet it with lukewarm water. Then apply a mild cleanser like our infused soap, gently applying the soap or cleanser in a circular motion with your fingertips. Finish by completely rinsing off the soap/cleanser and gently patting your face dry with a clean towel.
5. Stress less.
Finding healthy ways to manage stress can help your skin, too. Some skin diseases like psoriasis and atopic dermatitis (eczema) often appear for the first time when someone feels really stressed. Stress can also cause flare-ups of many skin conditions, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. Our bath bombs are known to help decrease stress and promote relaxation.
