Giving Face Time To Ethnic Beauties

Giving Face Time To Ethnic Beauties
Does your face need special care? Well, it is your calling card, so to speak. On a daily basis, your face is exposed to the elements … dirt, pollution and damaging UV rays. So here are a few tips on how to cleanse, treat and protect your beautiful ethnic skin.

Cleansing - Crucial to keeping your skin healthy is the cleansing process, how you remove the dirt, pollution and dead skin cells. For ethnic skin, look for ingredients that are gentle/cream based and do not contain soap. Soaps can be drying and strip your skin of its natural oils.

Treat - Treatments typically consist of serums and contains antioxidants like Vitamin C, Vitamin E and humectants. Antioxidants are ingredients that fight free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that damage the DNA in healthy skin cells. Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin are two of the best ingredients for drawing moisture into your skin. Moisturizing your skin supports your skin’s barrier. Your skin’s barrier can be compromised by cold air, dry air and other environmental onslaughts.

Protect - When the word protect comes into play, it’s usually referring to protecting from the Sun’s rays. Did you know that 90 percent of the visible signs of hyper pigmentation, sagging skin, broken blood vessels, and anti-aging are caused by ultraviolet exposure.

Sunscreens typically come in two forms: Chemical and Physical. The chemical sunscreens contain avobenzone and oxybenzone. They have a thinner consistency and if you choose to use them should be applied after the cleansing phase. If a toner is part of your regimen, them apply the chemical sunscreen after toner and then apply your moisturizer. This allows for absorption .

Physical sunscreens which contain zinc oxide and titanium oxide are potentially less irritating than chemical sunscreens.

Skin Types - When working with Oily or Combination Skin a vitamin C serum might a good product to use on your skin and then add your moisturizer. Mature or dry skin needs hyaluronic acid to nourish it.

That’s it for this week. As always …

Dedicated To Your Beauty!
