If you want a healthy glowing skin first learn how to look after it and clean well. Cleanse, tone, moisturise and nourish your skin everyday; within a week you will feel the difference. The skin has tremendous powers of self-regeneration when properly cared for and it is never too late to start.
Splash your face with water then massage with a gentle face wash and work it up to a lather for about 30 sec¬onds. A light massage will boost the sup¬ply of blood to the surface of your skin. Rinse until the soapy trace is removed. Pat dry your skin with a soft towel to absorb residual water from the surface of your skin.
After cleansing, toning should follow immediately. A good toning method is to keep cotton wool pads soaked in a bowl of skin tonic (any toner) in the refrigerator. After cleansing the skin, wipe with the skin toning pads and then pat the skin briskly with your fingertips. This stimu¬lates the blood circulation. Gentle stroking movements can also be followed.
The most important part of the skin care routine is moisturising. Smooth your skin with moisturising lotions. Dot lotion onto your face, then massage it with your fingertips using light, upward strokes. This will leave a protective film on the skin, allowing make-up to be easily applied and ensuring that there is bal¬anced moisture content.
