Steam facial to deep-clean clogged pores

Facial scrubs cleanse the skin by removing dirt, excess oil and dead skin cells. Since most scrubs are slightly abrasive, they can be irritating to very sensitive skin. As a rule, they should not be used more than two or three times per week (and even less often if your skin is dry). There are many wonderful herbal scrubs as oatmeal, apricot and tamarind. Rinse well and apply a moisturizer after the scrub.
The final step in your spa facial routine is moisturizing, which should be both rehydarate and nourish the skin to keep it soft and supple. Moisturizer keeps water locked in the skin cells by helping reinforce the thin, oily layer on the surface of the skin. This film is vital in preventing moisture from being lost through the skin, and in keeping the skin smooth, supple, and youthful. Applying moisturizer is also a good opportunity to massage the skin, which helps to stimulate blood circulation and increase muscle tone.
Protecting the skin
Most of the common skin problems are caused by the cumulative damage inflicted by UVA and UVB rays from the sun. Both kinds of UV rays stimulate the formation of free radicals, which injure both the outer and inner layers of skin. The result is not only tried, old-looking skin, but an increased risk of skin cancer. Antioxidant creams can help protect the skin from free-radical assault. They also work in synergy with vitamin E and C helping to restore collagen, the tissue that provides the scaffolding beneath the outer layer of the skin. Herbal skin-care products derived from rice bran oil, sheer butter, wheat protein and almond protein can help keep skin looking more youthful. For added antioxidant protection, look for skin products that also contain high potency vitamins C and E.
Regimen for dry skin
People with dry skin should avoid exposure to harsh soaps and detergents, which further deplete the body of its natural, protective oils. Stick to fragrance free, superfatted soaps made from natural ingredients including rice bran oil, aloe, jojoba oil and sweet almond oil. Chamomile is also an excellent cleanser that will not dry our your skin. After showering or bathing, always use a moisturizer to avoid that dry, tight feeling. Aloe and rice bran oil products are good choices.
