Entry 240: Skincare

Dear Diary, so people should take care of their skin, should mind their skin and take it into account or into consideration. So some tips or tricks for skincare on the menu today. Its a matter of utmost importance too, to look healthy and young and energetic and not exhausted either. So to avoid the skin being damaged or ruined and etc, you should pay extra attention to it. But it all depends on the type of skin you've got there. First and foremost, drink lots of water, to hydrate and moisturize your skin too. Treat your skin well, its going to return the favor. Drink boiled and hot tea out of the stove, its going to hydrate or moisturize your skin further more. Also in the summer, don't forget to put on the sunscreen, if you wish to expose it under the scorching weather or temperature because then you might catch skin cancer. Give it a massage every now and then too. Rub your temples a bit and your eyelids if you get sore around these parts and just in case there, it hurts and pains. Roll away signs of fatigue by using some eye-contour make-up or bags concealer too. You know for in case you've got bags or dark circles under your eyes and etc.

Skin Care

Just in case here, you got dry skins, use lotion, rub it in (in the real definition of the term, not idiomatically). Choose and pick the lotions thats for you, because then if you make use of one thats too buttery or too rich or too dry, then its going to get your skin conditions worse so yeah, be careful especially in case you have red spots and its itchy and scratchy etc. So choose your lotion wisely and read instructions too. If it says 2-3 times daily, don't put on more, or less. Follow them to the letter and by the book. Also use cream if you got any inflammations or infections or allergic reactions. 

If you wish to get rid of pimples or spots or redness or other skin problems, you should go to a dermatologist. I believe she or he will be more apt to counsel you more on this and you might have to use medicine on your skin too. But before applying it, ask your derma for advice and suggestions. Don't use it freely or without instructions. Exfoliate your dead skin too, I believe it wouldn't hurt your skin. Also, can scrub on some sea salt and minerals and etc, all natural too of course. In any case there, do not pop nor scratch them. Due to the fact that its going to make them look bigger and larger and uglier too.

Then you should mind what you eat. Because the nourishment or what you ingest or take will also affect or impact upon your skin a lot even, not a wee bit or a little bit. Take some vitamins (E or A). Those are most excellent for the skin's moisturizing. Also, don't ingest anything fried or deep-fried, if its already oily or greasy or dirty. Eat less junks too, don't eat them in weight, once in a while its fine and dandy, but not once per week or whatever. Eat fruits, fresh ones too, juicy and etc. Lots of vitamins in them too, so most perfect for your skin. 

For face pimples, more commonly known as acne, to treat them, you can use some regular facial lotions, masks or creams or cleansers or toners even. Just wash it regularly and 2-3 a day, not once in a blue moon, or once in while. Also taking showers or bath help too. When washing your face or taking a bath, you can pour in your water some milk or chocolate, it helps, believe me. Sounds peculiar, yes I know, but it won't harm your skin. Also, can apply some fruit slices or cucumber slices or pieces on your face's skin too, to make it look clearer and younger and more rejuvenated too and healthier. Also bathe yourself in some mineralized lakes, rivers, streams or salty ones too. Its going to rejuvenate it and get rid of your wrinkles to boot, so very beneficial for your skin. Especially the hot springs I've mentionned afore. 

If you got an oily or a greasy kinda skin, wash or clean it often. Don't use body milk or face milk or body/face butter, because its going to make matters all worse too. So use milk water or salty water and etc. Take a bath or shower often, with extra light gels and etc. Wash your hair often too, its going to do more good than harm to your type of skin. 

Also, mind your clothes and what you put on everyday, because trust me, its going to affect your skin too. If allergic to synthetic materials, don't put on polyester. Make sure to choose fine silk or coton wears. And not frilly or fringy ones or embroidered ones, because its going to irritate you all the more too. And you aren't going to be able to fall asleep either with those on, especially not embroidered nightgowns and etc. Don't forget to take off your bras too when going to sleep because its going to irk your skin and make it itch all the more too. Lastly, select your blankets or your bedsheets wisely or intelligently. Because if not the right materials, it can make your skin itch or red too. Get your skin's conditions worse too. Up next would be about my favorite song track, Jolene, by Parton.

I never got spots, haven't had spots in a long time. I wouldn't recommend washing your face with soap, bad idea as it can make your skin greasey.

You got lucky then, with what should we wash our face just in case its oily or greasy like mine then? Have you any tips or tricks? Spots are awfully nasty and unpleasant to handle or deal with.
May. 29th, 2012 10:26 pm (UTC)
Ay dios mio. A few years ago, I always had horrible acne on my face. I have really, really oily skin. On top of that, I'm extremely white, so spots are always extremely visible on me. x_x Luckily, I don't have such horrible problems with it anymore. XD

Very good advice, Naiwen. The entry was lengthy but it was worth the read to those interested in skin care.

I like Aloe vera, but I don't really take much care of my skin. Aside the often wash and cream, I don't buy products to clean the and I let pimples and stuff come and go as they appear. =P
May. 30th, 2012 12:21 am (UTC)
Yep, using Aloe Vera's pretty useful too on your skin... ANd very hydrating in fact. I like drinking the herb however. XD You should start taking care of it At least take it into account.
May. 30th, 2012 11:19 am (UTC)
Yeah, I've seen Aloe Vera beverages, have been hesitant to try it out.

May. 31st, 2012 02:46 am (UTC)

May. 31st, 2012 02:53 am (UTC)
I'd suppose its because you're a male eh? And not female? If you were a lady, you'd have learned about them long afore. XD
Jun. 1st, 2012 02:46 am (UTC)

May. 30th, 2012 08:55 am (UTC)
My skin tend to get oily... no matter how many times i wash my face... will try your method.
Jun. 1st, 2012 01:14 am (UTC)
Very good advice about skin. I use sorbolene to take make up off, to keep my skin moisturised. Also under my make up and like it very much.
Jun. 1st, 2012 01:22 am (UTC)
Whats that one eh? Also, should use make-up remover to remove make-up from your face too. Because if not, then you're going to ruin it all the more.

It is a very popular brand In Australia. It is a moisturiser.

I have been using it for decades and very happy with the product and my skin.
Jun. 1st, 2012 01:29 am (UTC)

My Skin
I always look after my skin with different face washes and creams so I hope that in the long term it helps.

What facial washes do you use and suggest?

I always get in the shower after doing running ect.. so that the sweat does not stay on my face and cause spots

I think it is so important to look after your skin. Eating the right foods also help skin as some of the nutrients in out food help it. About the sun.. I seem to miss out on the tan lol, I burn, then go white again, lol

I can have oily skin sometimes. Definetly going to try salty water :)
Jun. 7th, 2012 03:30 pm (UTC)
My skin is very low-maintenance - my only problems are dry skin (especially in the leg area) and acne, especially in the temple area. I think the lotion that the family has is too rich and I have absolutely done nothing to at least try to treat that acne (except if washing your face counts).

Good tips, though. Lengthy, but good.
Jun. 7th, 2012 08:51 pm (UTC)
Obviously guys don't care about it as much as women do, but yeah you're right it could be a genuine concern for some people
