Normal skin care

Read through the post Know your skin type to know if you have a normal skin.
Normal skin
is an abnormal thing. Your skin will be oilier during your youthful days and as you grow older it will get drier. It is usually trouble-free and needs simple care to keep it healthy and glowing. If you are one of those rare and lucky people to have normal skin take good care of it. Normal skin also tolerates most popular lotions and creams well. A regular skin-care program combined with a balanced diet helps keep normal skin stay supple and young.
Regular care for normal skin should include a few simple steps:
Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing daily keeps normal skin in great shape for a long time. It is advisable to use natural products on your skin.
* It’s easy to take trouble-free skin for granted. But, if neglected, it will begin to develop fine lines and wrinkles. So, always remember to nourish and moisturize your skin.
* Creams and lotions that contain vitamin A, C, and E help improve the texture of the skin, making it smoother and softer. Moreover, these vitamins counter the effects of free radicals, which cause ageing.

Regular use of banana gives your skin a fresh, healthy glow. * Take 1 tsp of honey, 1 tsp of milk, 1 tsp of sandalwood powder, a few drops of almond oil and carrot juice.

    Cleanse. Choose a facial cleanser without "beads" or "scrubbers." Either a foaming or non-foaming cleanser may be used, but note that non-foaming is generally less drying. If you tend to break out, choose a cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide acne medications. If your skin feels super-tight or "stripped" after use, select another product. Use as directed. Remember to be gentle when using.
    Tone. Choose an alcohol-free, unmedicated toner, tonic, or astringent. Use as directed. If toning dries out your skin or causes irritation, skip this step.
    Moisturize/Treat. Choose a lightweight lotion with an SPF of at least 15 for sun protection. Use as directed. If you have acne, choose a treatment containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid acne medications. Use as directed. If using both a moisturizer and an acne treatment, apply the treatment, let dry, then apply the moisturizer.
    Exfoliate. Choose a mild exfoliating peel or scrub to de-flake the skin. Use as directed. If this causes irritation, discontinue use.
    Mask. Choose a mask suited to your specific needs. Moisturizing, deep cleansing, acne-fighting, exfoliating, and soothing masks are all options. Use as directed.
    Use oil blotting sheets during the day to cleanse skin and combat shine without removing makeup.
    Keep makeup to a minimum. It can exacerbate skin problems. If you wear makeup, choose hypoallergenic (doesn't cause reactions), noncomedogenic (doesn't clog pores), oil-free, and fragrance-free products.
    Remember to drink plenty of water, take multivitamins, and eat colorful foods for skin-healthy antioxidants!

    The key to a natural, breezy beauty lies in the care of your complexion, not the makeup you put on top of it. Every night you should follow the same basic skin care regimen. Steam your pores open with a hot washcloth, and then apply a glycerin based cleanser (they’re easier on the skin). Use an alcohol-free toner. I prefer astringents with natural Witch Hazel, to remove residue, tighten pores and re balance the skin. And don’t forget to moisturize! Performed routinely, these skin care fundamentals will lead you to a fresh, dewy, blemish-free complexion.
