We all agree there is nothing quite like the salty air and the winds to set your spirit high. When you are in the water, your day will go by quickly. But staying out in the open from daybreak to dusk can mean havoc to your skin. If you are a sailor and want to keep your skin healthy, then here are some of the best-kept skincare secrets for you.
– Clean your face using a face wash and mildly warm water.
– Make sure the water is not hot because that will dry your skin or, worse, scald it
– Massage the face wash gently to clean away all the accumulated dirt and sweat in the pores.
– Rinse thoroughly
– Pat dry with a soft towel
– Use hydrating cream or cold cream to apply on delicate skin like under the eyes.
Did you know that acne is most often the result of not washing your face just before bedtime?
Pollution sticks and causes the bacteria to clog the pores causing breakouts on the face. Cleaning away the pores with a gentle face wash massage will clear it from all the day’s grime and keep it glowing all the time.
Men have different skin textures from women. And that is precisely why the best skincare for men is to use products specially made for men. This is because they work best by catering to their skincare needs.
Men have 4X more sebaceous glands than womenfolk. Sebum is created even at night. Too much sebum can cause stickiness on the skin attracting more dirt and grime. This is why washing your face at the beginning of the day is as important as washing before retiring for the day. Do not use soap for your skin. Instead, choose from delicate facial skin washes that will maintain the ideal pH level of your skin.
Exfoliating skin will remove the dirt that is stuck inside the pores. It also repairs flaky skin. Exfoliation is an easy job. Use a scrub, brush, or cloth and gently rub it on your skin to remove dirt from it. Use gentle circular motions. This will also improve blood circulation. Regular exfoliation will make your skin soft and smooth.
Exfoliation is best done two times a week. Overdoing it will make your skin bruised. Don’t forget to moisturize. Use a moisturizer even if the skin is oily. Choose a water-based and fast-absorbing moisturizer if you feel it to be very heavy on your skin.
The best therapy for great skin is to drink lots of water and rest well. Drink a minimum of 10 glasses in a day to flush out unwanted toxins from your system. The skin repairs itself during sleep. It produces more cells and improves blood flow. A great night’s sleep will ensure that you wake up glowing. Healthy and good-looking skin requires diligence and discipline.
