Beauty tip # 1

A few tips for skin care whether you have acne, oily, dry to combination skin or rosacea.

Everyone knows that this can be a problem that can cost you dearly. So here are some FREE tips on how to take care of your skin.

For dry to combination skin types, you can use soda water as a wash. This is a good for exfoliating the skin and giving it a clean smoother texture. Moisturize with a non greasy lotion, or use some extra virgin olive oil.

For oily skin try using lemon juice as an astringent. Rubbing your face lightly with the juice will help remove any excess oil that may be hiding inside your pores. It can also exfoliate you skin.

To calm irritated skin or rosacea these are some natural herbs found in pill form or teas. Aloe, fenugreek, burdock root, chamomile, red clover, rose hips, selenium, B vitamins and zinc. These can be soothing to the skin. They can be found in your nearest health foods store. There is also some, unique pine soaps used for cleaning the irritated rosacea areas. As for creams, I advise you get a prescription to properly treat the problem. These are just some soothing methods.

To treat blemishes. Forget the alcohol, use peroxide instead. DO NOT USE TOOTHPASTE!! I myself have been a victim to falling for that wives tale.

For a mint wash you can lay a warm damp clothe on your face for ten minutes. Take 1 tsp of peppermint oil in ½ cup cool water. Apply these by dabbing over your face with a cotton ball; never rub!

Also, a dab of triple antibiotic over night can help as well.

For a nice over night moisturizer take a quarter size portion of extra virgin olive oil and apply it all over your face. It will also give your skin a nice smooth texture.

Though these tips are useful, be sure to stay on your daily regimen. Eat healthy and drink water (pineapple juice is great for flushing out impurities as well)
