Is proper skin care one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2014? It will certainly be put to the test just like any resolution, and that’s why an article by Julyne Derrick for About.com’s Beauty section provides advice for doing it properly in 4 simple steps. The first step─ as a reputable Fort Collins skin clinic might also tell you─ is Cleansing:
Be careful not to cleanse too often or you risk over-cleansing skin [...] You really only need to wash your face at night to remove makeup and sunscreen, which can clog pores.
If you have dry skin, consider cold cream like Pond’s, which the French use or make your own organic cold cream [...] Simply apply cream, then wipe off, no water needed (if you have hard water, it can be especially harsh on skin).
Done right, homemade cold cream should last you about six months. The next step, according to Derrick, is exfoliation; this is the act of removing old skin cells with the help of face scrubs, special chemicals, and even hair removal methods such as waxing. A Fort Collins waxing clinic like Love Your Skin by Jules will use that to clear your pores of all clogging dirt and leave your skin looking like new.
