Secrets To A Young, Radiant Complexion

Within the beauty industry, experts acknowledge there are actually two effective ways of taking care of aging skin to create a more youthful appearance.

  1. Plastic surgery physically alters the skin, and sometimes the shape of the face. Other artificial means use products that contain chemicals that are believed to minimize the signs of aging.

  2. Natural methods include measures to living a healthy lifestyle.  Eating the right foods ... not smoking ... occasional drinking of alcohol ... regular exercise ... stress reduction measures ... and the list goes on.

Plastic Surgery Or Natural Skin Care?

Plastic surgery is a quick remedy to aging. Chemically laden anti-aging skin care products provide easy, if superficial results -- literally "hope in a bottle."

However, experts in the beauty industry encourage people to use natural means. If these lifestyle measures are followed properly, they can have a lasting effect on not only your appearance, but your over-all health and well being.

Taking Care Of Your Skin To Avoid Aging

In order to avoid the early signs of aging, skin care should be an essential part of everyone's life, men and women alike.

The first step in taking care of skin is to know what type of skin you possess. Dermatologists — medical doctors who specialize in skin and skin care and treatment — categorize skin into four basic skin types:

* Dry Skin
* Oily Skin
* Normal Skin
* Combination Skin

Dry Skin

A tight or rough feel often distinguishes dry skin. It is characterized by the presence of flakes and scales, as well as redness and itchiness of the skin.

Experts say that is if you have dry skin, you must avoid washing it with hot water. To avoid skin irritation, it is essential that you completely avoid using harsh or strong soaps and alcohol-based skin care products.

Oily Skin

Oily skin is characterized by shiny appearance and large pores on the skin's surface, that can make it prone to acne. People who have oily skin should shun too much scrubbing, which can actually cause more pimple breakouts.

Everyone should avoid comedogenic ("comedogenic" basically means pore-clogging) skin care products, and skin care experts advise that it is essential for people with oily skin to use non-comedogenic skin products to maintain healthy skin.

Normal Skin

We can easily recognize the healthy glow of normal skin. It doesn’t exhibit redness or large pores. People who have normal skin types should use skin care products that help maintain the natural water balance of their skin.

Combination Skin

Last is combination skin that has both dry and oily areas. Oily sections usually include the T-zone (the forehead, nose, and chin), while cheeks remain less oily.

People with combination skin may carefully care for the different areas of the face separately. Or, consider using products that are specifically developed for this skin type in order to avoid over-drying of the dry part of the skin, which can cause redness, itchiness, or irritation.

You will find more information on all of these measures when you look through the different skin care guides, by clicking the links above.

The next time you reach for one of those expensive bottles laden with chemicals, first consider the rest of your lifestyle choices. Remember, when you are feeling healthy and relaxed inside, you will show a more young, healthy and radiant skin comlexion as well.
