Interesting Facts About Your Skin That You Never Knew

There are thousands of important aspects of your skin and its health that you need to know. Although it is the most prominent part of your body, we are sure you are missing out on a lot about your skin and skin care.

Skin is the first line of defense against the outside world, including irritants and other elements that cause skin allergies. So maintaining healthy skin is crucial to this mission.

All that is to say, maintaining this vital organ with smart skin care habits can help keep it healthy and, yes, even help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and lessen discoloration. Knowing some of the cool facts will help you care for your skin as best you can.

Everyone’s Skin Has Different Needs:

Just because you have oily or combination skin does not mean everyone else has this type, too. In fact, there are quite a few different kinds of skin types out there, ranging from oily to dry to combination to sensitive. When putting together your daily skin care routine, look for products that are designed for your specific skin type, and build a regimen that works best for you. For example, while oily skin might require more frequent exfoliation, sensitive skin may need to take it easy on this skin care step. Meanwhile, combination skin might require two separate moisturizers on different areas of the face since your T-Zone might be oily, and your cheeks might dry out frequently. Just Remember: Everyone is different””and that’s totally OK!

You can consider using the wonderful Oriental Botanics Australian Tea Tree Anti Acne Face Scrub for oily skin. This face scrub is created to restore your naturally gleaming skin. It enhances the skin’s clarity and radiance and invigorates the skin. Mild abrasive agents and gentle exfoliants are blended in the face scrub to expose the younger layer of skin hidden behind the dead skin cells and helps to eliminate skin dullness. It helps in loosening the blackheads and whiteheads and unclogging the pores. It helps to fade the dark spots, and its skin-lightening effect assists in reducing the appearance of the hyperpigmented spots. The skin-conditioning agents infused in the scrub leaves the skin moisturized and supple.

Sleeping With Makeup On Is Just Awful

So, you got home from a long day, and all you want to do is snuggle up under your down comforter and get comfy to watch your favorite series. But Wait! Before you do that, don’t forget to remove your makeup! Going to bed with a full makeup face on is not the most brilliant idea. Here is the reason why: All those cosmetic products on your face can mix with the dirt and oil that’s been building up on your skin during the day, which can clog pores (Ah! clogged pores can lead to breakouts). To make things more manageable for yourself, leave a bottle of micellar water and a pack of cotton pads on your nightstand. Micellar water is a gentle cleansing option, as it is powered by tiny oil molecules suspended in water that help lift dirt, oil, and makeup residue up and away from your skin.

Try the Oriental Botanics Australian Tea Tree Anti Acne Bi-Phase Micellar Water. This facial cleanser helps remove grime and makeup with one or two swipes of a cotton pad without rinsing and rubbing the skin. It is surprisingly gentle on the skin and keeps the skin hydrated and balanced. Multiple botanical extracts and essential oils are blended in the micellar to help enhance your complexion. They work synergistically to reduce the blemishes and lighten the skin.

To Use – Saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe it across your face. If you’re using it for eye makeup removal, hold the pad over closed eyes for a few seconds, then wipe. There’s no rinsing or rubbing required with micellar water!

Moisturization Is The Key To A Healthy Skin Care Routine – Regardless Of The Skin Type

Yep, it is true that you should slather on a face moisturizer or gel even if you have oily skin. When you use a cleanser to wash your face, it can strip your skin of essential moisture. So, if your skin is naturally oily, it might be tricked into thinking it needs to produce even more oil to make up for what has been lost. If that’s the case, you may want to look for a moisturizer that is specifically formulated for your skin type to rebalance and ensure that your skin looks mattified, not oily.

Not sure where to start? Try the Oriental Botanics Australian Tea Tree Anti Acne Face Gel. It is a soothing & refreshing Face Gel that helps hydrate the skin without making it sticky. The Face Gel is enriched with natural oils and plant extracts to moisturize and nourish the acne-prone and oily skin. It is a non-comedogenic gel that quickly permeates the skin without clogging the pores and improves the stressed skin condition. It restores the skin’s lipid barrier without leaving behind greasy residues so that your skin feels soft and smooth without feeling greasy. Rich in nutrients that help in the regeneration of the skin cells, this face gel helps to repair the damaged skin. It helps to protect the skin from oxidative stress due to exposure to pollution.

Expert Tip: Apply moisturizer to damp skin to help lock in hydration.

Skin Care Shouldn’t Stop At Your Face

Do you only apply your serum, sunscreen, and anti-aging routines to your jawline? It’s time to take things further and pay attention to your neck. If you are not showing the skin on your neck, the same love as the skin as your face, all your work could be for nothing. So, the next time your slathering on the anti-aging cream, put some on your neck, too.

Try the Oriental Botanics 99% Aloe Vera Fresh Soothing Gel For Skin & Hair, which helps to nourish and strengthen normal and mature skin. The nutrient-rich gel forms a transparent film of moisture on the skin that protects against pollutants and environmental stressors. It can easily penetrate your skin and nourishes the skin tissues, thereby leaving your skin thoroughly nourished. It helps cool the inflamed and irritated skin and heal the skin damaged by overexposure to sunlight. This natural skin-conditioning agent locks moisture in the skin and adds suppleness and firmness to the skin. It assists in the regeneration and renewal of the skin cells and helps preserve your skin’s youthful elasticity, giving a healthy glow.

Sunscreen Should Be The Last & Most Important Skin Care:

It is essential to wear SPF even when it’s cold outside. That is because you can still get burned even on cloudy days. According to skin care experts, there are two kinds of rays emitted by the sun: UVA and UVB. Both types of rays can damage your skin when your skin is not protected and exposed to the sun. That loss can show up down the road as visible signs of aging, like dark spots, and wrinkles. Dermatologists recommend wearing a broad-spectrum SPF of 15 or higher for everyday use and applying broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher if you’re going to be spending an extensive amount of time out in the sun. You should apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you step outside and reapply every two hours. Sunscreen should be the last step in your skin care routine (after cleansing, applying serum, and using a moisturizer) just before you put on your makeup. If you find you are always in a rush in the morning, consider reaching for a moisturizer formulated with SPF, to shorten & simplify your morning routine.

Try the Oriental Botanics Aloe Vera, Green Tea & Cucumber Sunscreen SPF 50, which provides broad-spectrum sunscreen, meaning it protects against UVA and UVB rays. It is enriched with botanical ingredients for superior protection from UV rays and advanced skincare. It protects against sunburn, tanning, and photoaging and keeps the skin hydrated, soft, and bright. With SPF 50, it forms a protective umbrella on your skin, capable of blocking 98% of UVB rays responsible for sunburn, tanning, and patchy uneven complexion. With PA+++, it is highly productive in shielding the skin from UVA rays that penetrate deep into the skin and trigger premature aging of the skin.

It is Totally Worth Exfoliating Your Skin

Exfoliating is the process of sloughing away dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. It is important because, as you age, your skin’s natural ability to shed dead skin cells slows down, which can result in a dull-looking complexion. Exfoliating can also help your other skin care products work better since they won’t be sitting on top of that dead skin cell buildup. There are two kinds of exfoliation: mechanical and physical. Mechanical exfoliation involves physically scrubbing your skin, while chemical exfoliation involves using acids or enzymes to help break down the surface buildup. How often you should exfoliate varies from person to person, some can do so a few times a week, while others can only handle it once a week.

Maintaining a good skin care routine is essential for both you and your skin.
