Caring for your Face: The Right and the Wrong


When it comes to your face, you should always remember that this is the part of your body that sees the weather first. The wind, sun, hot or cold all touches your face before anything else. There are so many ways that you need to look at caring for your face before any other body area - especially when you are living in extreme climate conditions. The way in which you care for your skin depends very much on the type of skin that you have. Someone with oily skin will care for their face differently from someone with dry skin, and it's important that you know the best way that you should be caring for your face.


Your skin, your eyes and even the skin on your lips needs to be hydrated and well taken care of. You should consider the makeup that you use, too, from eyeshadow to the mineral foundation that you choose, too. The more you take care of your skin, the better it will look and once you know what your skin type is you're going to find it so much easier to take care of it. So, how can you best take care of your skin?



  • The Basics. Cleansing, toning and moisturising - it's all you have been told, right? You can keep it so simple when you choose to find a good cleanser to cleanse the skin, but there's no need to choose a designer cleanser - you can get one from the pharmacy or beauty store that'll do exactly what it needs to do. Don't use soap as it can dry out the skin, but water and even cleansing milks will prevent your skin drying out. Use a toner to ensure that your pores are cleaned out and then add the right moisturiser to your skin to finish the trifecta.

  • Exfoliation. You don't need to do this every single day, but you will make a massive difference to your skin when you exfoliate a couple of times per week. Use a good exfoliation product and make sure that your scrub doesn't have tiny plastic balls in it: you'd do the environment a favour to avoid them. Know your skin, though, as you may have the skin type that will need it more than twice a week.

  • Moisturise. Your face requires hydration, and the best way that you can do that is with the correct one for your skin. When your skin feels tight or looks flaky, it means that it's dehydrated and really needs some love from you! You can choose to go natural with an oil for your skin instead, and coconut oil is a favourite for many! Whatever you do, make sure that your moisturiser has a good SPF. No matter where you are from or the tone of your skin, you need to ensure that it's sun protected at all times.


You need to ensure that your skin is looked after, especially if you are out in the fresh air a lot. The more protection you can offer it, the better hydrated it'll be!
