Skin Care Factors for Different Complexions

When we talk about complexion we are referring to the natural color, texture, and appearance of the skin, especially on the face. A person’s complexion may be described as clear or clogged, bright or dull, smooth, glowing or rosy. What’s important for all complexions is to keep healthy circulation and blood flow to the skin.

Poor blood flow creates a sluggish cellular system that may block nutrients and oxygen from nurturing the skin. Good circulation boosts collagen production, which helps keep skin firm.

Here are some skin factors to consider for different complexions. Evaluate your skin type – oily, normal or dry to address skin tone issues. What matters most for skin whether a fair complexion or dark complexion is daily care. During the day, consider using a multi-tasking natural day face cream that exfoliates, brightens and tones on a cellular level.

Color
The lightness or darkness of your complexion is due to the amount of melanin in the tissues. When there is more melanin in the tissues, the darker the skin. Going out in the sun whether you have a fair or dark complexion will impact melanin levels. Fair skin needs to be protected against burning. Darker skin has some natural protection but it is still vulnerable to skin cancer, spots or wrinkles. It’s important to get in the habit of always protecting your skin while outdoors. Apply sunscreen, wear a hat and add sunglasses to protect your eye area.

Uneven discoloration, redness, or dark circles may be a reaction to lifestyle choices or indicate something for you to explore with a dermatologist.

Select a complementary foundation color and a concealer color that is one tone lighter than your skin tone. When using products, check the ingredients carefully.

Texture
To support your skin’s texture, cleanse your face with a mild soap in moderate temperature water twice a day. If your skin is dry to normal you can rinse only with water in the morning. Exfoliate once or twice a week. Gently scrub to remove dead skin cells. Don’t overdo it.

Moisturize twice a day after washing no matter what your skin type. Skin needs to stay hydrated even if your skin type is oily, dark or fair. Eat green leafy vegetables and drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day. Don’t forget the benefits of ancient-greek-skin-care-secrets-still-used-today and the-benefits-of-certified-organic-extra-virgin-olive-oil-in-your-skin-care for your skin’s complexion.

Appearance
Dullness or prominent pores can be a concern for many women. Wash regularly and thoroughly. You may want to follow up with a hydrating mist to seal in skin care products. Face oil can give your complexion an instant glow.

Complexions can be improved through better eating (protein helps with skin cell turnover and helps keep skin moisturized). And through better sleeping (skin produces collagen and elastin during sleep). Use a night face cream that works in tandem with your skin’s natural repair cycle.

Get to know your face and nourish it with proper lifestyle choices and selective skin care products.

Beautiful Skin Makes a Good First Impression

Whether you are a professional who spends the day in an office, a consultant working on assignments for clients, or a freelance journalist scooping stories on the street we are all jumping from one first impression to the next. We want to stand out for our work, and sometimes our look. It can bring us closer to those we want to know. When going for the look, get comfortable in your own skin.

People assume that what is beautiful is good. Physically attractive people generate favorable first impressions. If you don’t consider yourself one of the “beautiful people” don’t dismay. Research shows that nonverbal communication such as posture, eye contact, and tone of voice influence first impressions as well. Beautiful skin gives you an advantage.

Many people equate first impressions to one’s attire – the suit, shirt, leg wear, coat, or shoes worn. Others may focus on hair, eyes, voice and skin. It is here that everyone can succeed. When these are well attended to, the result is not only a “look” of confidence but a feeling of confidence. Your posture and sense of authority direct the look. The look doesn’t direct you.

The Daily Mail reported that 42-year-old actress Jennifer Garner was seen at dinner with her family in Santa Monica wearing no makeup. Casually dressed, with her hair pulled back in a ponytail, she sports a warm smile in the photograph. Garner wears her flawless complexion well and attributes it to avoiding the sun and her basic skincare routine.

How a woman feels in her own skin influences her style, approach, communication, decision-making, and energy level. All of these influence first impressions. The natural look is associated with authenticity. Natural skincare products are a perfect complement to the natural look. When women struggle with their skin and skincare products, the battle spills over to other areas.

The flawless skin of a 20-year old model may be a faulty goal for most of us. Get comfortable in your own skin. Moisturize, nurture, and pay attention to what your skin needs. Apply a body cream after a shower to keep your skin smooth in key areas including neck, elbows, knees and feet. Use morning and night face creams daily to hydrate, firm and reinvigorate the skin. Making good first impressions is where your skincare regime gets noticed.

Make your first impressions last. The more frequently you see someone, the more likely they are to develop positive feelings towards you. When you believe you are beautiful, you will be.
