You can get lip or teeth implants, but your skin is something that you really can’t hide or change much unless you’re willing to go to the extreme. Sure, you can drudge on tons of makeup, get a tan, or dye your skin to cover the imperfections, but at the end of the day, what is that going to do for your complexion? Everyone wants that perfect skin tone that others can dote on, but just how do you go about achieving it? Here are tips for improving your skin.

Evaluating Your Water

Most people are accustomed to washing their face in the sink or the shower. You hardly ever see anyone grabbing a bottle of water and washing his or her face at home. Since this is the case, you need to be aware of the fact that there are two types of water that can come out of your faucet or showerhead. You will either have soft water or hard water. Neither one of these water types is perfect for human skin, but in combination with the right products, you can make them work.

To start off, soft water doesn’t completely remove soap from the skin, so it can leave a residue. In this case, you will need to use face and body cleansers in addition to washing your face, but the key is to use them sparingly. Never use more than a nickel or quarter-sized dab.

Hard water is almost the opposite, as it doesn’t allow the soap to lather easily. In return, you end up using more soap, which causes the skin to dry out. One way to avoid this is by using gentle, non-soap formulas. These products do not lather at all, so you don’t have to concern yourself with that aspect.

Choosing The Right Hair Products

When doing research, be sure to check out the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector review and other brand product reviews. Remember, customer reviews are a wealth of information and can help consumers make the right decision the first go-around.

If you are big on hair products, you need to be aware of the fact that some of these can contain oils or waxes that just simply clog the pores, which lead to acne. This is especially true for the forehead and back, where the hair is usually in contact with the skin. Regardless of how much you try to prevent your hair from touching your skin, it will be impossible. So, your best option will be to choose hair products that are free of comedogenic oils and other ingredients that cause acne.

How To Apply Cosmetics

One of the biggest mistakes women make, when it comes to applying cosmetics is choosing products that are not suitable for their skin tone or type. For instance, if your skin is oily, you will want to stick with cosmetics that are specifically designed for oily skin. If you have difficulty finding the perfect shades for your skin tone, you can always seek the advice of a professional cosmetologist. This professional can also provide you with tips for applying every type of makeup available on the market.

  • Interesting read, we have hard water where we live and it definitely affects my hair and skin so I have to be careful with the products I use. Happy week!
