Some Skin and Hair Care Tips

Daily skin care starts with cleansing your skin.  Here are a few simple things you can do to ensure you’ll look your very best now and for years down the road.
1.       Bathe only once a day to minimize the possibility of depleting your skin’s moisture. Use lukewarm water (instead of extremely hot or cold water), a soap less cleanser, and limit your bathing or showering times to under 15 minutes to keep your skin from drying out.
2.       Sunscreen is a must and probably the most important step when it comes to protecting our skin from harmful environmental factors. Make certain to use a sunscreen or moisturizer containing at least 15 SPF and apply it daily to every area that is exposed to the sun.
3.     Hair care is essential for good health as well. If your hair appears healthy, you look younger. Shampoo your scalp at least two or three times a week in order to avoid developing dandruff.
4.       When you shampoo your scalp and hair, use your fingertips to scrub your scalp thoroughly to loosen up dirt, oils, and debris. Rinse your hair with cool water and you’ll notice it has more body as opposed to rinsing with hot water.
5.      Before going to bed each night, be sure to brush your hair to remove tangles and redistribute natural oils in the hair.
6.    If possible, allow your hair to air dry rather than subjecting it to blow-drying which can rob your locks of essential moisture.
7.      Use a wide-toothed comb to comb out hair when it is wet to avoid breakage.
Regular trims will prevent split ends and give you a new, polished look.
8.    Believe it or not, proper nutrition and ample amounts of rest contribute to healthy skin and hair, so make sure to get the proper amounts of vitamins, minerals and nutrients in your food or via supplements.
9.       Go to bed at the same time each night and get up the same time each morning.
