Why Not Treat Yourself To Some Spa Time?

Looking after your skin can be a pretty tiring process, especially with all of the different things that are expected of you when it comes to doing it right. It can be a pretty thankless procedure, and it can become really tempting to just say “to Hell with it” and not bother with a regime anymore. But instead of that, why not set yourself a treat every once in a while that takes the onus of you and allows you to relax in style while someone else does some of the work for you? Spa or beauty treatments can leave you feeling like a million dollars, but they don’t need to cost anything in that region.

There are a great many treatments you can get at a spa or beauty salon, and you can encourage yourself to stick to a good regime by outsourcing some of the work to these guys every once in a while and allowing yourself to be looked after. If you give yourself that little treat, you will develop your own little effort and reward scheme that pays off in no small way. Perhaps a face mask would be a nice way to unwind? They draw out impurities and leave the skin feeling as fresh as a daisy. An exfoliating rub can be good too – getting rid of dry skin that gets irritated all too easily. And there are plenty of other treatments you can get, all of which will leave you feeling decidedly relaxed.

It doesn’t even need to be expensive. If you have a spa or beauty salon near you, the chances are that they have regular promotions offering free or discounted treatments on certain days if certain conditions are met. Sometimes you will get a two for one deal – so bring a friend and enjoy the company as well as the treatment. It is well worth doing every once in a while – as a treat and as a reminder of the benefits of a good skin care regime.

Skin Care – Things To Avoid At All Costs

April 23, 2009 by  
Filed under Skin Problems

There is an amazing amount of money spent every year by men and women, boys and girls (and parents) who just want their skin to look as good as it can, and are prepared to pay well for the privilege. There is no question that a lot of this money is wasted, as people buy the wrong product, or buy the right product and use it wrongly, or even get both of those elements correct and then do something else that undoes all the good work they had just done. Doing it right is not an easy thing. It can be a quest that ranks up there with the search for the Holy Grail. But a few words of advice are worth keeping in mind.

Firstly, do not buy a product without reading in detail what it does. This is seemingly obvious advice, but there are so many people who purchase a skin care product and are appalled to find it does not work for them. They then belatedly read the packet and find it was for people with oily skin, and they are possessed of dry skin. No surprise it didn’t work, really.

Secondly, it is vitally important that you avoid at all costs any product that comes without the correct medical seals of approval. These differ between countries but one thing that remains constant is that the clinically tested products have the appropriate marks. If you try an unendorsed product, you should not be surprised if it does you no good.

Thirdly, do not expect a product to do all the work. It requires a little something from you, too. As often as not it will be simple – follow a good diet, drink water regularly, avoid extremes in temperature after use. And do not use another product on top of the first one without checking to see that they are compatible. It’s asking for trouble.

These are just three pieces of advice. You can probably think of a few of your own. The most important thing to remember is that if you look after your skin, it will look after you. It’s a two-way street.

It’s Not Effeminate To Look After Your Skin

There is so much information flying back and forwards in this day and age about what a man should be. Should you be a metrosexual, spending as long in the bathroom getting ready to go out as the most fastidious of ladies? Should you be rugged, caring not one iota about such things as crow’s feet, laughter lines and body odour? Should you be some kind of mix, proving your macho credentials while at the same time displaying a certain appreciation for the things that make you handsome and desirable? One sure bet is that whatever you do, you will attract some flak from someone, so you are better off pleasing yourself in the end.

This does not mean just allowing your appearance to do as it wishes, of course. But there is a way of following a male skin care regime that does not make you a perfumed dandy who wishes he had been born female – if that’s what you are scared of. You can show some appreciation for the looks you have been blessed with and not come across as vain. It’s a matter of measure and balance, and if you get it right you will reap the rewards in the form of compliments and more. And the first thing to pay attention to is your shaving routine. It’s not just about splashing on a bunch of cologne after you’re done, and holding in an anguished yell of pain, anymore.

Firstly, you should prepare your skin before shaving. There are several good pre-shave treatments out there, and their benefit is something you will appreciate if you have been shaving for a while. They allow the razor to slide over the skin with a lot less friction than if you just daub on the shaving foam – or gel – and have at it with the razor. As a consequence, you take hair off your face without removing a few layers of skin while you are about it. Then when that is done, apply a good after shave balm. This will cool the skin where there has been friction, and replenish the moisture that has been taken away. And after all that? Then you can splash on the cologne – but remember that even the strongest men scream in pain sometimes.

Skin Care Products – Caring for Your Skin, or Careless for Your Bank Balance?

April 10, 2009 by

There is a vast range of products on the market for people who want to get rid of facial blemishes and keep their skin looking fresh, clean and young. Some of these products really do work, and do the job for which they are intended. But it is always important to ensure that you get the right product for you, and to make sure that it is actually addressing the problem rather than masking it. In fact, this process can start when you see the product advertised. Certain give away words and terms can be very important in making sure you do not buy something that leaves you feeling like you have wasted your hard earned money.

You may well have seen ads for wrinkle cream, for example, which use the phrase “wrinkles appear reduced”. It sounds like a perfectly innocent phrase, and yet if you think about it, they do not say that wrinkles are reduced, do they? Why not? Because they aren’t. The wrinkles appear reduced because the active ingredient in the cream causes the skin to expand and stretch out where the wrinkles are. The actual wrinkle is no more reduced than if you had done nothing at all, which is why you need to keep applying the cream, and buy more when it runs out. No cream can actually reduce wrinkles, so it is a short term fix at best.

Another word to look out for is “can”. Very often you will be told that a product can have amazing effects. But this depends on a number of factors – factors which are essential in turning a “can” into a “does”, and these very factors can be inconvenient, expensive and in some cases downright impossible. Look out also for products which claim that in laboratory testing they proved to be far and away the best. Legally, the companies are required to include substantive proof that this is the case, and very often what transpires is that a small majority of people found that the product was helpful, within a laboratory sample in the low hundreds of people. Hardly conclusive.

Eat Right And Your Skin Will Reward You

There probably isn’t a person reading this who was not told by at least one adult during their childhood that eating junk food would give them spots. Maybe it was potato chips, maybe it was chocolate. Maybe it was pizza – which certainly used to be a popular one, and gave an extra depth of pathos to any “pizza face” jibes that got thrown around. The truth is that a bad diet can lead to bad skin, and that eating and drinking the right things can have big rewards when it comes to looking good on the outside. Eating the wrong things can have disastrous results, even if you wash twice daily and use all the most expensive treatments.

Firstly, it is true (up to a point) that too much chocolate will have an adverse effect on your skin. Refined sugar-based products do terrible things to your facial skin and do nothing to inhibit the production of excess oils. A bar of chocolate every so often is fine – everything in moderation, after all – but if you make a daily habit of it, and go beyond the one bar, you will soon see the ill effects. Caffeine is another thing that should be taken in moderation. Excessive caffeine – it is a diuretic after all – will cause your skin to dry out and will mean that you miss out on important nutrients.

So what should you eat? Well, fish is never a bad option. Ideally not coated in breadcrumbs, a bit of fish every few days will allow your skin to get the supply of oils that it needs in order to thrive. And if you pair that fish with some good vegetables – carrots and green veg like broccoli or spinach – you will get a good supply of Vitamin A, which helps keep the skin healthy. Vitamin E is an important contributor as well, and is present in nuts – specifically hazelnuts or almonds – which you can snack on when you get peckish. And if you drink water regularly, it will flush the system of impurities, meaning there is no need for you to get blemishes any more.
