Skin care is essentially dependent on the type of skin. There are five main categories into which skins are classified. Deciding the right skin care tip that depends on judging the type of skin and then deciding what skin care tips will best suit the skin. The five categories of skin types are: normal, dry, oily, combination and sensitive. The types normal, oily and dry are easy to understand from their names themselves. Whereas a combination type is a combination of two different types, generally a combination of dry and oily, although other combinations are also possible. A sensitive skin is exclusively an individual skin and it behaves specifically in face of time. Although there are numerous tips for taking care of the skin, yet basic tips are the same for all kinds of skin.
Cleansing: The first skin care tip is to keep the skin as clean as possible. Cleansing is a very important because the skin is the body part that extremely endures all the harshness and severity of nature in the first place. A tip for cleansing is to do it with a cleanser. Many good cleaning products are available, both cosmetic and organic. Water is a natural cleanser, but we shall discuss the importance of water in skin care in the moisturizing section.
Another skin care tip is not to use soap (except in mild amounts for oily category sometimes) while cleansing the skin of the face. Soap has an exceptionally drying effect. A general rule is that a creamy cleanser is suited best for dry skin and a 'less oily' one fits the oily skin best. Milk is the best example of a natural cleanser.
While cleaning, it is also important not to over cleanse. Over-cleansing can have disastrous effects like depleting the natural oil glands. Xtend-Life offers the deep Active Cleansing Mask for both men and women to really clean the skin of its dirt and also free radicals.
Moisturizing: Every type of skin needs to be moisturized. Many different types of moisturizers are available, again in both cosmetic and organic categories. An important thing to understand while moisturizing is that it does not add water to the skin. The process of moisturizing rather helps retain its natural moisture. The natural moisture is supplied from the inside of the body. Organic skin care tips like eating lots of fresh fruit and drinking adequate amounts of water ensures sufficient supply of moisture from the inside. Xtend-Life Deep Active Hydrating Mask has been specifically designed to suit the hydration needs of the face. This product is also available in both the men's and women's categories.
Sunscreen: The UV rays of the sun have disastrous effect on the skin. The UV heat of the sun dries the moisture so making it dry. Cosmeticians that have devised the SPF ratings to help the consumers determine how much Sun Protection Factor is suitable for the skin. A sunscreen or a SPF ranking is so available on all different types of skin care beauty products. The Age Defense Active Body lotions, the Age Defense Active Facial Fluid and the Whitening Day Cream for women, all have the special sunscreen properties of Xtend-Life products.
Protect from stress: Stress, again is a very depreciating factor for a skin. The worry lines on the forehead can extremely culminate into wrinkles. Thus, leading a stress free lifestyle is a vital skin care tip. Just remember whatever the reason for the stress is, there is always a solution.
