Face Cleaning – An Essential Skin Care Routine

Women of every age like to have a flawless and glowing skin. The glowing and healthy skin is considered to be a symbol of beauty. Some women have naturally glowing skin and some achieve it with cosmetics. But now a day, when environment is becoming too polluted and we are too busy to take care of our skins, even the women with naturally glowing skin have skin problems. The reasons are simple because of work pressure and less time available for skin care everyone faces skin problems. One of the best practices for glowing skin is facial cleansing.

What is facial cleansing?

Facial cleansing is a simple routine method to remove oil, dirt and impurities from facial skin. In order to remove all impurities and dirt it must be the first step in your skin care routine.

How to select a facial cleanser?

Selecting a suitable facial cleanser is the most important thing for cleansing. It is not necessary to buy very expensive cleansers. You just need to buy one that suits your skin type. So before using a cleanser you need to know what is your skin type.

Skin types:

Before adopting a skin care routine you must have knowledge about your skin type. There are three basic skin types that depend upon the amount of oil your skin produces:

1-Oily

2-Dry

3-Combination

1-Oily Skin:

Oily skin looks shiny and has large skin pores. This skin has tendency to blemishes and pimples. This type of skin produces oil on whole face. Oily skin is usually prone to blackheads.

2-Dry skin:

Dry skin has fine pores and is usually tight. This skin appears dull and has fine lines and wrinkles. This skin is prone to sunburn. It doesn’t produce oils.

3- Combination skin:

This is called as normal skin. It has pores of medium size and produces oil in t-zone. This type of skin has healthy color and usually has fewer flaws.

Once you know your skin type you may select the type of cleanser that suits your skin type. Wrong selection of daily facial cleanser would rather destroy your skin. So be careful about your skin type because this is the first and foremost step towards healthy and glowing skin.

How to use cleansers:

Facial cleansing is first and foremost step for a daily skin care routine. Select a cleanser according to your skin type. Cleansers could be easily purchased on beauty stores. Just go tell the shop keeper your skin type and get a quality cleanser according to your skin type. Do not spend extra money on cleanser, just buy any good cleanser. Do not use beauty soaps as they make your skin dry. You may use face wash which is good for facial cleansing. There are many brands which provide good face washes which have cleansing effect as well. Several steps involved in facial cleansing are:

  • Wash your face properly.
  • Apply a good cleansing cream or lotion on your face.
  • Massage it for 10 minutes. Use water if cleanser dries before 10 minutes.
  • Wipe your face with a wet tissue paper.
  • Rinse with cold water.
  • Apply toner.

Benefits of daily face cleansing:

  • Cleansing removes dirt and skin impurities.
  • It balances the skin oil.
  • It causes blood circulation of your face making it youthful, glowing and pinkish.
  • It adds freshness to your face.

Risks:

Wrong direction of cleansing can destroy your skin. If you do not use toner after cleansing your skin pore would be opened. Open pores are prone to blemishes, black heads and pimples.

Skin Aging… What you really need to know! (part 2)

Why does skin age?Increased melanin

When people reach the age of 40, the skin’s ability to produce and replace new skin cells slows down. There is a layer under the skin called Dermis. This layer is very thick, and when people age, this layer starts becoming thin. Skin loses its ability to retain moisture. The glands that help improve skin elasticity become inactive, and the skin will lose its flexibility.

Types of skin:  Skin types vary, depending upon the amount of melanin the skin produces naturally. Melanin is a photo-protective pigment that prevents the skin from harmful UV rays. There are various skin types, and they are classified according to the skin tone and color gradient. We can divide these skin types into several groups (Melanin increasing downwards):

decreasing melanin level

  • Very light
  • Fair
  • Medium
  • Olive or light brown
  • Dark Brown
  • Black

 

Darker shades of skin contain more melanin, which reduces the speed of skin aging. For example, Africans will not burn from the sun the way a fair-skinned Caucasian would. It is an interesting fact that people with lighter skin tones are more affected by environment. The melanin in the skin is a protection barrier, which protects the skin from harmful rays and acts like a natural sun-block.

Types of melanin:  All types of skin produce melanin; however, there are two types of melanin

  • Eumelanin
  • Pheomelanin

Eumelanin:

Eumelanin is dark brown to black in color. Darker people have a higher percentage of Eumelanin in their skin. Eumelanin is more protective against the sun’s damaging UV rays. It absorbs the UV rays and protects the skin by dispersing the energy. People with darker skin suffer from fewer skin problems than those with lighter skin.

Pheomelanin:

Pheomelanin is pale to red in color. People with lighter skin have a greater percentage of this type of melanin. Pheomelanin does not protect against the sun rays as much as Eumelanin. Pheomelanin breaks down with UV rays and causes skin problems like sun burn, irritation, and blemishes.

As you can see, the aging process is different for everyone, depending on their skin type. Proper skin care can help slow down the skin’s aging process.

Daily aging skin care:  It is important to care for your skin so that it looks healthy and youthful. You should adopt an anti-aging skin care routine. Here are a few simple steps to keep your skin from aging prematurely:

Sun protection

The most important extrinsic aging factor is sun exposure. To avoid sun damage, blemishes, and age spots, use a suitable sun screen that is rated SPF 15 or higher. Apply sunscreen to your skin daily, even when the sun is not shining because there are always some harmful rays around you. Wear shirts with long sleeves and protect your legs as well.

Moisturizing:  During the aging process, skin loses its ability to retain moisture. Apply moisturizer to your skin daily to keep your skin feeling soft and looking youthful.

Skin care products:  Whatever brand of skin care products you choose to use, be cautious of the ingredients. Use products that have more natural and registered ingredients. Some products use low quality and dangerous ingredients that produce quick results but cause irreversible damage to your skin. Wrinkle System is one of the best brands for aging skin care.

Avoid stress:  Stress is one of the greatest causes of wrinkles. Avoid stress and depression and be happy. This is an excellent way to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh and young.smoking affects skin

Avoid smoking and drugs: Smoking tobacco is one of the worst causes of skin aging. It increases the speed of skin damage. People who smoke will age faster than those who do not smoke. Smoking reduces the amount of Vitamin A in the body that is needed for healthy skin. It breaks down the collagen supply, causing skin to become less flexible. It also causes the skin to become dry and feel rough. Drugs also cause damage to the skin, as well as depression and stress. These factors can cause dull and lifeless skin. Apply these useful tips into your life, and your skin will feel the difference.

Marching towards 2-Minute-Drill. Really!!

Wrinkle Cream, Dark Circle Treatment, & Cleanse all in two minutes!

We are proud to write about a flagship product, rather a complete system, that works! But, here’s more – it does not require your commitment all, just 2 minutes per day, period!

WrinkleSystem’s Two Minute Wrinkle Drill is made up of three products.  It makes sense from start to finish, and the recently re-formulated wrinkle cream is packed with the peptides I look for, so I thought it was a great idea to order a set.

WrinkleDrillSystem

The Two Minute Wrinkle Drill makes sense on many levels.  It starts with the base of all skin care regimens – a cleanser.  After cleansing the face with the Extreme Cleansing Gel, the Wrinkle System anti wrinkle reduction cream is then applied.  Perhaps the product most people talk about the most in this system, the Dark Circle Serum, which boasts amazing clinical results, is applied last.  The Dark Circle Serum is a top selling dark circle treatment on it’s own, and it has generated some great consumer reviews here and on other anti aging skin product websites I visit.  This is a great anti aging product idea, (adding a cleaner just really makes sense to me) and they offered together at such a low price.  For more information about this new anti aging wrinkle treatment, please read the entire Two Minute Wrinkle Drill Review.The most exciting thing about the Two Minute Wrinkle Drill, (besides the low price), is the high-powered ingredient formula.  If you haven’t read about the wrinkle cream, read the Wrinkle System Review.  Dating back to April of 2008, this product has been receiving positive wrinkle cream reviews.


The Dark Circle Serum is a great product on it’s own, but when combined with the wrinkle cream, it has the ability to take years off of your appearance.  As dark circles can annoy men and women from about age 20 and up, it’s important to treat them effectively.  The Dark Circle Serum is formulated specifically for that purpose.  Containing an active complex of soy and rice peptides, as well as yeast protein, hyaluronic acid, and seaweed extract, this eye serum targets puffiness as well as discoloration.

The Dark Circle Serum is currently the best selling dark circle treatment on Amazon.com!

Just take a look at the ACTUAL clinical tests that were done on this exact product:

  1. 35% reduction in dark circles.
  2. 31% reduction of eye puffiness.
  3. 42% improvement in skin smoothness and texture.

While many companies are quick to point out clinicals that back up their ingredients, this product points out actual clinical testing done to this product.  That’s impressive!

Lastly, the base of any anti aging system should be a cleanser.  Any anti aging creams performance are enhanced when used on clean skin.  For this reason, the team at Wrinkle System has added the Extreme Cleansing Gel to the Two Minute Wrinkle Drill.

The Extreme Cleansing Gel is free of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.  It’s formulated with soothing wheat proteins, which help to lift dirt, oil, and impurities, leaving the skin clean, refreshed, and ultra-soft.

Here are some other points worth noting about the Extreme Cleansing Gel…

  1. Provides Deep Cleansing
  2. Naturally Moisturizes
  3. Effective gentle cleansing for sensitive skin

At the end of the day, this is a complete anti aging system that takes only two minutes to perform.

When you put together those three products at the low price of $87, you really do have a perfect anti aging system.  We have three people testing this system right now, and in the meantime, we hope some of the users out there can post their own Two Minute Wrinkle Drill Reviews.

Users of the Wrinkle System brand include owner of Makeup Envy, Danica Jardien.  Danica is a Denver-based makeup artist who has worked with Tyra Banks, among many other celebrities you will recognize if you look at her impressive resume.
