Select the Right Skin Care Products for Your Skin Type

 

What is beauty? Why do some people have more eye appeal than others? What makes a woman beautiful? I put it to you that real beauty comes from radiating personal acceptance and having a sense of worth.

We don’t always feel beautiful. There are days when I feel downright ugly, usually when I am feeling excessively stressed and worried. On days like this I have found that if I take some unblemish skin care action, no matter how small, toward working on something I consider worthy, a project, a goal, learning something new, or doing some activity in line with my values – before long I’m feeling beautiful again. When I am feeling beautiful I am sending sweet bounty out into the world.

Overall health is a good goal for feeling and looking beautiful. When we take time to treat our bodies well, whether by exercising, eating well, grooming and taking care of our skin, or simply taking the time to get a good night’s rest – we shine.

Environmental factors are the skin’s worse enemy along with stress. Our skin is exposed to the heat of the sun, drying winds and the pollution of dust, grime and cigarette smoke. Perspiration and oil secreted from the sebaceous glands clog pores and make the skin appear greasy. Because of this it has become important for us to use a cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen every day. Knowing your skin type will help you select products that are right for your skin. With the right products you will see the results you are looking for.

Skin falls into four basic types:

1.Normal

2.Combination

3.Oily

4.Dry
