Ever pine for the days when your skin had a youthful radiance? You might think those days are gone forever, but recently, the aging process has been shown to be like any other medical condition. Its secrets are being unraveled, so you soon may be able to stall or reverse its processes.
Jeunesse Global has been one of the leaders in the industry on this issue, as they have helped people all over the world regain the faces they used to have when they were younger.
Through their products and other common sense practices, it is possible to regain much of its former appearance.
Below, we’ll walk you through the regimen you should put your face through on a daily basis.
1) Use a toner to soak up excess oil
Over the run of a day, your face picks up an unbelievable amount of dirt and oil, which serves to rob it of its natural radiance.
Remove it by applying toner to your skin – do this by soaking a cotton ball with toner, and scrubbing each part of your face until you cease to pick up any more filth.
Let the number of soiled balls that you use sink in – you need to be proactive when it comes to keeping your skin clean.
2) Wash your face with a gentle cleanser
At this point, lather up some cleanser and rub it all your face gently without scrubbing too harshly. The type of cleanser you will use depends greatly on the kind of skin you have.
Those with dry skin will want to avoid brands that contain alcohol or fragrances, people with oily skin will want a foaming cleanser that avoids use of oil-based products, and folks with sensitive skin should use hypoallergenic cleaners that avoid additives wherever possible.
3) Remove dead skin cells with an exfoliant
Skin cells die, get shed, and are reborn regularly, but this process doesn’t always proceed in a timely manner.
This is especially true the older you get, so those who want to look their best need to take action to speed this cycle along.
Note this is a harsh process: only do this 2-4 times per week. If you find your skin is irritated soon after starting this regimen, space out your exfoliation procedures until you find the routine that works best for you.
There are two different types of exfoliant: mechanical and chemical. Mechanical exfoliants use micro-particles to slough away dead skin cells, while chemical brands use a weak acid to dissolve them.
Mechanical products are best for those with oily skin, while chemical brands work best for those with dry skin, so choose wisely.
Once your skin has gotten a good scrubbing and/or scraping, it is time to feed your freshly cleaned skin cells some moisture.
Avoid oil-based lotions and creams to avoid blocking your pores and creating acne, try to use products that give your skin protection from UV rays (SPF 15 and higher), and depending on skin type, you’ll want to choose products with certain additives (lotions for oily skin, hyaluranic acid for dry skin, and Vitamin C for sensitive skin).
Moisturize twice per day, once upon rising and once before going to sleep.
