Here are some simple solutions for your skin problems
Good skin care practices can help to maintain firm, smooth, and healthy skin. Eventually, though, time and sun exposure take a toll on the skin’s appearance. Facial skin problems and skin problems on other areas of the body can occur because of age, exposure to environmental elements, and a host of other factors. Some common skin flaws are the result of genetics, viruses, and other causes.
Freckles: These tiny dark spots can be very annoying especially when they seem to appear and disappear at their own will. Mostly found on the nose, cheeks and forehead, freckles are a collection of pigments in the skin that have little or no pigment at all. This pigment increases so as to protect the inner layer due to constant sun exposure. This leads to freckles.
Solution: Avoid staying out in the sun for long periods without sunscreen. Apply a few drops of vitamin E oil on your freckles. Lemon juice works by making them lighter.
Whiteheads: Not as bad as the dreaded blackheads, these small, whitish spots are caused by the accumulation of oil in the pores when a sebum blocks a hair follicle deeper in the skin.
Solution: Instead of forcing them out, invest in a regular clean up. This will gradually decrease them over time. Use a facial scrub regularly to remove dead skin.
Blackheads: These bothersome black dots on your face have to be physically removed. Blackheads occur when dead skin cells and sebum block a hair follicle and causes the pores to become big. This in turn makes the skin appear and feel rough. Sometimes this can also result in pimples.
Solution: Drinking adequate water as well as fruit juices and fruits will keep blackheads in check.
Use a medicated face wash and wash your face with plain water during the day. Green tea is known to be filled with anti-oxidants. But even using the tea bag contents after drinking the tea as a scrub does wonders for your skin. Follow it up with some jojoba oil, which acts as a great moisturizer.
Enlarged pores: This happens due to over activity of the sebaceous glands in the skin. Excessive secretion of oil clogs your pores making the skin rough.
Solution: Ask your dermatologist to prescribe a face wash ideal for your skin that will reduce the oil on your skins surface. A good toner will not only help remove oil but also close the pores. n
