If you’ve been neglecting your skincare routine lately, or just didn’t have enough time to dedicate to your skin, you might have experienced some of the problems below. Don’t worry, if they occur, these problems can be solved. For more serious skin conditions, such as hormonal acne, psoriasis, eczema, hives, and similar conditions, you should definitely consult a professional and take proper medication which will help you deal with these diseases. But for now, take a look at ordinary skin problems listed below, including the remedies for them.
It’s a fact that your skin and organs age with you. The best tip for keeping your skin fresh is to always wear sunscreen. Skin is the largest organ of the body, therefore, it is the most visible one, and is also affected by weather conditions, harsh chemicals, or radiation from the Sun. If you feel insecure about your wrinkles, anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers can work wonders. They help in smoothing out your skin texture, by making the wrinkles less visible and giving your skin a more youthful look.
When the acne heals, sometimes it leaves a red mark or a spot, caused by the inflammation process in the skin layers. This is called hyperpigmentation. Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to entirely avoid hyperpigmentation, but there are certain steps to follow if you want to try to naturally get rid of these blemishes. Natural remedies such as lemon juice or aloe vera can lighten the skin and help it heal much faster.
3. Dry Skin
One of the most common causes of dry skin is a lack of sebum. If your skin is dry, it is not creating enough sebum (an oily substance naturally produced by the body's sebaceous glands). Naturally, dry skin should always be moisturized and hydrated. Drinking 10-12 glasses of water per day is highly recommended to keep the skin dewy and healthy. Avoid the usage of products that contain alcohol, artificial fragrances, and colors, or any similar chemicals that damage the skin. Natural moisturizers are coconut oil, aloe vera, and shea butter.
This is probably the most common problem on the list for women of all ages due to hormonal changes in the body. Our hormone levels fluctuate over the years, and there’s nothing to do about it. Some women are more prone to breakouts than others. Clearly, ordinary breakouts (not including hormonal acne), can shrink and dry out with the aid of tea tree oil or by putting ice directly onto the pimple. It is recommended to stay away from makeup and micellar water during breakouts.
5. No Glow
If your skin lacks its natural glow, or if you look tired all the time, lack of sleep might be the biggest reason. During sleep, our cells regenerate and high-quality sleep increases their reproduction. Glowing look can be achieved by applying face masks, exfoliation and even using some healthy glowy makeup. Again, dewy look is directly related to moisturized and hydrated skin, so revitalize your skin with water and serums.
Don’t sit in the sun more than necessary, wear sunscreen with a high SPF and protect your skin with a baseball cap or a straw hat. However, skin mildly damaged by the Sun will eventually heal itself, but you can alleviate the process with the aid of ice (or a similar cold compress), anti-inflammatory medicine, or a thick moisturizer like Vaseline.
7. Oily Skin
Contrary to the dry skin, oily skin is most likely caused by the excessive production of sebum. Adding a foundation to the oily skin can only make it look too shiny and unhealthy. For oily skin, don’t overwash your face, don’t sleep with your makeup on, and use clay, which is a great absorber of oil.
You shouldn’t feel pressured to look as young as possible. However, if you don’t like the way you look, you should enhance your look naturally and stick to the natural remedies if you’re not told otherwise by a beauty expert.
