Being healthy means taking care of yourself and your body. That’s why it’s important to set aside a few moments to indulge yourself and rest. Do you have dull hair, skin imperfections or even damaged nails? Then don’t worry! Below, we give you some beauty tips to stay healthy and feel good about yourself.
Take Care of Your Body
First of all, to take care of your body, we advise you to take a shower instead of a bath, as this will prevent your skin from dehydrating easily. Also, make sure to adjust the temperature of the water, and keep in mind that warm water will always be better for your skin than hot water.
On the other hand, it is necessary to favor mild soaps, as they do not dry out or damage the skin. In fact, ordinary soap can cause unpleasant and uncomfortable skin dryness.
If you use a shower gel, make sure you rinse your body well after the bath to remove any remaining shower gel. Immediately afterwards, dry your body well with a soft towel, as this will allow you to clean up any impurities. Finally, after showering, don’t forget to moisturize. Hydration is extremely important because every tissue, organ and cell in the body needs water to function properly, in other words, the body depends on water to survive. Don’t hesitate to use a moisturizer that is adapted to your skin.
Now, to get rid of small imperfections on your body, use a body scrub once or twice a week. To do this, take an exfoliating glove, and place the product on it. Then make circular movements on your body to stimulate blood circulation, eliminate dead cells that accumulate on the skin and blackheads. It should be noted that the body scrub makes your skin soft and regenerated.
Finally, in case you are going to leave your home, keep in mind that when it is cold outside, your skin tends to dry out and become more fragile. That’s why you need to cover up well! On the contrary, if it’s a sunny day, don’t forget to apply sunscreen on your skin and avoid frequent exposure to the sun. Likewise, take a bottle of water with you, to keep you hydrated during your day. We advise you to drink about 1.5 to 2 liters of water per day, this will help you to have a perfectly healthy skin.
Take Care of Your Face
If you want to take care of your face, start by removing excess oil. All you need is a good skin cleanser to do this. First, apply a facial cleanser that is suitable for your skin to your face. After rinsing your face, use a facial scrub to remove impurities and dead skin. Keep in mind that you need to apply the facial scrub once or twice a week to get good results. Don’t forget that if you have dry lips, you can also use a suitable scrub to remove dead skin. With this cleansing routine, your skin will be like new!
On the other hand, it is important to apply a moisturizer adapted to your skin type. Ideally, go from your neck to your forehead and from the center of your face to the top of your cheeks. Be careful not to put any cream in your eyes, as this part of the body is fragile and there are other types of treatments specifically adapted to this area.
Finally, we recommend that you take a steam bath on your face, because with this treatment, the pores of your skin open up and let out all the impurities. Remember that to do this, you can choose to perform a facial sauna or simply use a bowl of hot water and essential oils. In the case of using the bowl, you will only need to place your face on it and cover your head with a towel. Inhale for about 10 minutes, after which your treatment is complete. We recommend using organic essential oils of lemon, eucalyptus, lavender and grapefruit to perform this natural facial.
Taking Care of Your Hair
To take care of your hair, it is essential to use a gentle shampoo adapted to your hair type. For oily hair, it is preferable to choose a purifying shampoo that includes among its components an element that balances the PH of the scalp. While for dry hair, it is advisable to choose a nourishing shampoo. If your hair is normal, choose a moisturizing shampoo, as it will keep your hair in its best shape.
If you want to speed up your hair growth, don’t hesitate to massage your scalp! This will increase blood circulation and therefore make your hair grow much faster. It is also important to frequently cut the damaged ends of the hair, because the deterioration of the ends has a negative impact on the whole hair and prevents its growth. It should be noted that cutting hair helps oxygenate the hair follicles, which stimulates growth.
You may be asking yourself, how many times should I wash my hair in a week? Well, it depends on the nature of her hair. For oily hair, it is recommended to wash it twice a week. On the other hand, if you have dry hair, it is better to wash it once a week. And if you have normal hair, wash it 2 or 3 times a week.
For a successful hair routine, use a conditioner or mask after your shampoo, as this will help detangle and make your hair easier to comb. Plus, your hair will be much softer and more manageable.
