Skin care is literally caring for your skin. Yes, it seems so simple but in reality everyday people are falling asleep with make-up and the daily toxins sitting on their skin eating away at their youth and elasticity. You wouldn't wear the same clothes everyday because they would get dirty, start to smell and fall apart your skin too needs to be washed and replenished on a daily basis. Again like your clothes you wouldn't just bath them in water, no you use washing detergent especially designed for washing clothes and again you should wash your skin with specifically designed soaps, creams and lotions that will help keep it healthy. It is so important to care for your skin not for vanity purposes but because your skin covers and protects so many precious and vital organs of your anatomical structure.

Where to start with Skin Care...

The most important parts of skin that need attention are the parts that are exposed the most; face, neck, arms and hands. The face not only is dealing with the everyday environmental pressures of toxins, grease and dirt but make-up is invading its space. Make-up does truly work wonders but if it not correctly removed it will begin hurting your skin leaving you looking aged.

  1. Wash your skin, at least once a day! If a facial cleanser is beyond your budget then warm water and soap followed by a moisturizer will do the job. It is great to use products that have natural ingredients as they will work best with your skin.
  2. Go natural. Eat good natural grains, fruits and vegetables and use natural products.
  3. Stay hydrated. Drink, drink and drink
  4. Exfoliate. The outer layer of skin, the part which the eyes sees is dead skin cells, by daily exfoliating your skin you will revive your skin and increase blood circulation and awaken your lymphatic system.
  5. Check your digestive track. Alternative medicine practices often relate skin issues with an unproductive digestive system. Staying hydrated and increasing fiber intake are two great ways to improve digestion.
  6. Give your skin a rest. Don't wear make-up every day, don't do all the works or remove it early to give your face a rest.
  7. Wear sun screen. Protect your skin. Even if it is not the heat of the summer the rays of the sun are powerful and penetrate the superficial layers of skin. It might be wise to invest in moisturizers, creams and chap sticks with SPF 15.
  8. Get a massage. A massage is a great way to rejuvenate your skin, it increases blood flow tremendously and enhances the elasticity of the skin, plus there are definite relaxation benefits.

Skin Care as a Profession

There are several ways you can approach a career in Skin Care. There are the mainstream Beauty schools that offer courses that cover skin care, hair, make-up and nail treatment. These courses can last from a year up to three years. There are several Alternative medicine practices that have focuses on skin care such as Indian head massage that utilize juices, fruits and oils to massage into the skin for therapeutic and health benefits. Also, Acne and Eczema, being conditions of the skin are wildly treated by Alternative health practices such as Allergy therapists, Acupuncture, Acupressure and Aromatherapy.
