Best Ways To Take Care Of Every Type Of Skin Type

Taking care of your skin is taking care of your bodies first layer of protection and it is very important.

Best Ways To Take Care Of Every Type Of Skin Type

Skincare is so important. You need to nourish it and keep it healthy so that it can do its job in being your body's first defense against the outside environment.

If you have really oily skin, your skin produces excess sebum that sits on your skin and can clog your pores. It might seem ironic but this may be becuase your skin is dehydrated. To make up for the lack of moisture in the skin, the skin produces extra oil to keep it moist. So the first thing you need to do is drink a lot of water! Hydrate your skin and body. Next, you need to get oil-free faces products, like face washes. It is critical that you get the gentle washes and exfoliators so that your skin's natural barriers aren't stripped off; this would cause your skin to be even more dehydrates and therefore make more oil. Make sure to use oil-free moisturizers and use them regularly. Keep your hands away from your face as well to avoid getting more germs and oil on your face.

If you have normal or combination skin, you usually get oily in your T-zone and dry to normal skin everywhere else. You can get away with using a bigger range of products but make sure to avoid touching your face too much and to drink a lot of water to preserve your skin.

For all my dry skin ladies, Your skin probably feels tight and crusty. What you need to do is use more oil-based products. Use thicker, cream-based moisturizers and face oils to add moisture to your skin. Like the other skin types, it is important to drink water and keep your body hydrated. I also recommend using hydrating gel face masks, they feel cool on the skin and your skin feels smooth and moisturized after. You should avoid clay masks, they tend to be extremely drying and will do exactly the opposite of what your skin needs.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
