Face Skin

The face is the most visible part of the human body and therefore the condition and healthiness of the skin is always on show. It is important then to take care of the skin by watching your diet and make sure you exercise.

Watching what you eat and balancing your diet will improve the look and feel of your skin. Protecting your face from the sun will also benefit you immensely and will help prevent the signs of ageing.

It is important to incorporate certain aspects when considering looking after and protecting your skin. Firstly daily cleansing, twice a day is recommended, using a mild facial wash that does not cause irritation to the skin.





Toners are a continuation of cleaning your skin and removing any impurities but they also help to nourish and hydrate the skin further.

You can also consider exfoliating your skin which removes dead cells from the skin, rejuvenates and leaves your skin glowing and feeling younger. It also helps to crease out fine lines and wrinkles in the process.

Finally after using all these, it is very important that you keep your skin moisturised and hydrated using a moisturiser that suits your skin.



The face is a part of the body where skin problems are very common. This maybe due to the face being exposed to the open world and the substances it may contain. A very common problem is dry skin.

Women tend to get dry skin on their faces because they apply make-up to their faces which stops the natural flow of air getting the skins surface. Certain cosmetic products may also contain substances which may cause the skin to be left feeling dry and not hydrated.

With men it is more so after shaving. Foamy products such as shaving foam may cause the skin to dry up and leave it feeling flaky. Also the movement of the razor on the skin may cause the skin to inflame and become dry. Products are out there for men now, such as specific moisturisers to help tackle the skin drying up and leaving it flaky.

Facial skin is also prone to skin problems and irritants that need to be specifically treated with special creams. This may include acne problems, mild form of eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. All though can be treated with the right creams and solutions, some more easily than others. If you have any concerns you should get in touch with your local healthcare.

The face is also one of the main areas where spots are and are easily visible. Spots are usually found in younger adults and mainly teenagers. People believe that it is caused by having unclean and dirty skin, but this is not true. It is to do with our hormones and more precisely our testosterone.

As you get older your skin starts to age with you. Certain measures can be taken now to help prevent this. Mainly, you can eat healthy foods which contain the natural nutrients your body needs to keep healthy.

But if you feel you need an alternative method there are plenty of products out there which help combat the signs of ageing. As mentioned previous applying moisturisers will help your skin to stay rejuvenated and looking younger. If you are at a stage in your life though where wrinkles have appeared then all is not lost.

There are many anti-wrinkle creams available now, some better than others, which help wrinkles disappear and leave you looking younger. It is thought that these new anti-wrinkle creams are much more affective than that of Botox and at the same time cheaper than that of Botox and plastic surgery! Also it does not hurt or leave any scarring.
