5 Tips for Good Skincare


5 Tips for Good Skincare

1. Sun protection

Sun Protection is a must.  According to the American Cancer Society   melanoma skin cancer is the most common cancer and rates have risen in the past 30 years. Current estimates are the one in 5 adults will have skin cancer in their lifetime. I use Badger sunscreen as it protects from both UVA and UVB rays as well as being organic and water resistant.

2. Avoid chemicals

Avoid Chemicals in your skincare routine that goes for your cleansing method as well. Cleansing oil is the best route to keep your skin supple and moisturized. Always read your ingredients a good source to look by brand is the EWG skin deep guide.  The less products you use on your skin, the less irritated your skin will become thus reducing the signs of aging.

3. Moisturize your skin

Your skin is your largest organ on your body and in order to stay replenished and glowing, your need to trap moisture in to avoid fine lines and remain healthy.

4. Avoid using hot water

Avoid using hot water on your skin as it will stripe your skin of oils; use tepid water. Limit the time you spend in the shower, you will be helping your skin and the environment. Cool water is also best for your hair and reduces scalp irritations. According to WebMD hot water can exacerbate skin challenges such as psoriasis

5. Reduce Stress

Reduce Stress as it play a major role in our overall wellbeing that is reflected in our health and skin. We know the rules, eat well, exercise and get plenty of rest but it seems this time of year it is harder. Some of our customers swear by using our lavender hand cream at saying it soothes their hands and the aroma is like a lullaby to them.
