Here are a few answers to some questions:
Many women are not wearing a good sunblock every day. Everyone needs sunblock for all body parts that will be exposed to the sun. Especially the face, neck, hands, and lips. It should have an SPF of 30 or higher and be oil free. It will help to prevent skin cancer as well as prevent sun damage which causes premature aging of the skin.
Example: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock SPF 70. It is light, non-greasy, and layers invisibly under make-up.
The sun and heat of the summer can really dry out the hair. Use an alcohol free, hair polish or gloss to give your hair moisture and great shine without weighing down the hair.
Example: Rub On Shine by Influance or Power Gloss by Straight Request
Exfoliate your entire body to remove dead skin cells that cause your skin to appear dull, dry, and rough. A good brown sugar scrub will give you soft, smooth, glowing skin without irritating or being too rough on the skin. Using the scrub on your legs before waxing or shaving, will also give you an even smoother result.
Example: Brown Sugar Polish by Fresh or you can make your own at home with brown sugar, honey, and olive oil.
If you’re getting random acne breakouts, there are a few things that you can do. Acne is usually only successfully treated when treated both internally and topically. First, make sure that you’re eating a proper diet. If you’re eating a lot of sweets and junk food, it can cause breakouts. The skin is the body’s largest organ and is one of the ways that the body secretes waste. When you have a lot of toxins in your body, they can come out through the skin. This results in acne breakouts. Secondly, you must also treat acne topically with products that contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid to dry up the pimples once they appear. Pimples are clogged pores that are filled with excess oil, bacteria, or inflamed hair follicles. Cleanse your face twice a day to keep your skin and it’s pores as clean as possible. You must always eat right, drink plenty of water, as well as topically treat blemishes when they appear. The right eating habits and proper cleansing is the key. These two things together should help or cure your random breakouts.
