Take good care of your skin when you're out in the sun. Good sun protection in the form of sunscreen is a critical part of a responsible skin care program. The sun's rays contribute to ageing, wrinkles, sun spots, and even sunburn and skin cancer!
You can use a stand-alone sunscreen or choose a cosmetic product that includes sunscreen within it, saving a step in your skin care routine every morning. The key to good sun protection is consistency; you need to use your sunscreen every day, even when it's cloudy outside.
When buying cosmetics, you want to choose the best quality that you can afford. Cheap make up will have a negative effect on your skin. Good skin care means using quality cosmetics. You may end up spending more money, but it makes a huge difference.
The make up will be easier to apply and remove. It won't clog your pores or irritate your skin, leading to more skin care issues instead of less. If you want your make up to look effortless, using good make up is the right place to start.
Paying close attention to your skin is very important to good skin care. Regular self-examination of your skin, especially the spots that receive the most sun exposure, means you are more likely to catch small changes, especially ones that may signal the development of skin cancer.
While not every change means skin cancer, no matter what the skin condition is, it's always better to catch these things earlier rather than later.
So you see, by making sure your skin care routine includes the basics, like cleaning, blemish control, sun protection, the use of quality cosmetics, and regular self-exams of your skin, you'll have a good handle on looking great!
