Many people that suffer from a bad facial complexion actually have great days and want those days to always last. If your skin glows a little, you remember that. You want it to look that way all the time. It’s nice to feel good about yourself every day. Many people, unfortunately, look in the mirror and they see a complexion that is unsightly and causes them to be depressed. Our skin may be older than we last remembered. It may have lots of lines and blotches. We might even have a few blemishes here and there. All you want to do is fix it and you really don’t care how old the job gets done. As you continue to read, you’ll discover simple solutions for having a great complexion every day.
Your skin needs to look great! So to do this, many people will wear sunblock on their face especially when they go outside. The reason you hear this all of the time is because it is true. So, to make your desire to have great skin come true, it is important that you wear sunscreen every single day to preserve the way your face looks. Don’t just dab it on either. Make sure you coat your whole face and neck. SPF protection built right in is necessary, so make sure this is in your sunscreen when you buy it. Here’s a secret for when you need an ice pack. Put some frozen peas in a Ziploc bag, keep it in your freezer, and use it instead. If you wake up in the morning with puffy eyes, applying the “frozen pea” ice pack for five minutes can make a big difference. This “ice pack” will adapt to the shape of your eye sockets more readily and not be rigid like a standard ice pack. Not only are frozen peas easier to use, they also cost a lot less than commercial products made especially to be used on puffy and/or swollen eyes.
It’s no secret that sugar and sweet foods are bad for your teeth as well as your body. But, do you know that your skin can also suffer if you eat too much sugar? Another type of damage by eating too much sugar is that when the body processes the sugar, that process can break down the collagen just under your skin. You need firm, healthy, elastic collagen for your skin to look its best. Collagen is so important for firm-looking skin. If it breaks down, your skin is prone to wrinkles, creases, and sagging. So if you want your skin to look as good as it can, limit your intake of sugary foods and sweets. Your whole body will benefit by not having to process so much sugar.
