Treat Sagging Skin Naturally

If you have ever looked at a piece of crepe paper, you’ll totally understand how sagging skin can look. It refers to a skin type that looks thin, wrinkled and loose.

One need not be old to get sagging skin, however it mainly occurs due to aging, generally in those over 40, or individuals who have lost weight rapidly. Loose and saggy skin can take hold at an earlier age if you’re someone who drinks less water and has dry skin. There is also some suggestion that it could be to do with genetics too. Overexposure to sun and heat damage can also cause your skin to look dull and flaccid, eventually leading to sagging skin.

The whole process occurs because the natural elastin fibers in your skin get weakened due to all of the reasons mentioned above, and it is a part of the natural aging process. Some more of the reasons for developing saggy skin include the use of some medications, poor diet and a high intake of sugar, caffeine or alcohol. A lack of sufficient sleep and even everyday pollution and UV damage!

Even though the loss of elastin is a natural process, and will eventually happen to us all, there are ways we can look after our skin, and slow down the sagging!

Most people have invested in some anti-aging skincare products at some point, and these products are often overly priced, and not all of them give us the desired results.

To save you money, and effectively care for your skin health, we have listed some of the best natural ways to keep your skin youthful.

1. Green Tea

Green tea is a great way to clean the toxins out of your skin. You can enjoy drinking the tea, while also reusing the tea bags as facial masks. Rub a tea bag on the face and leave it for a few minutes before rinsing. The antioxidants in the green tea are great at minimizing pores and lift the skin.

2. Ginger

The antioxidant gingerol, found in ginger is an excellent remedy for aging skin. It can protect your skin from the collagen break down and can actually make your skin look youthful and bright. Make sure to add some to your tea every morning, or cut up some fresh ginger and add to hot water for a refreshing drink.

3. Banana

Banana is an excellent natural remedy for making skin fresh and lifted instantly, and it naturally boosts collagen production. Just mash half a banana and apply it all over your face and neck, let it dry, then gently scrub off and rinse the skin with water.

4. Olive Oil

The monounsaturated fats in the olive oil can help to prevent the new wrinkles from developing and treats the old ones too. Massage into your skin on a daily basis and start seeing the difference. It works very well to tighten and hydrate skin on the upper arms.

5. Avocado

Charged with vitamin A, D, and E, this superfood can lubricate your skin and provide it the extra hydration to make it feel plump and soft again. Eat more avocados, or just make a mask with mashed avocado, and feel the difference once you start using it regularly.

6. Aloe Gel

It consists of beta carotene and vitamin E, regular use of aloe gel can make skin plump and can reduce wrinkles and sagging skin too. Rub over some like your daily moisturizer or use the fresh plant pulp and mix with milk or water before drinking daily. Both ways it’s going to work wonders.

7. Cucumber

Cucumber can brighten up your complexion and give your skin that hydrating punch. It’s rich in magnesium and potassium, which promotes healing. Rub some cucumber slices all over your face, and it will instantly make you feel refreshed.

8. Orange

Vitamin C is the key ingredient in most of the anti-aging products and what’s better than using it in its pure form. Take some fresh juice in the morning, drinking it can detox your body from within while rubbing a drop or two on your face every day, can make skin look brighter and youthful.

9. Honey

In order to get rid of saggy skin on upper arms, honey can work well. It is a great moisturizer and can also help to heal your skin too. Consider having honey in your morning detox or just rub some honey all over your skin, massage for a while, then rinse with water to see amazing effects.

10. Egg Whites

These are rich in omega and can naturally tighten your skin. Make a face pack by mixing one egg white with a spoonful of lemon juice, and leave it on your face until it’s all dry. Wash off and pat dry. Repeat once a week to see the results.

Now that you know some of nature’s best ways to make skin youthful again, the most important thing to remember is to stay hydrated, be consistent and patient, and get ready to see things work.

Skinfood Best Tips for Acne-Prone Skin

Acne-prone is the condition of the skin that makes it more susceptible to breakouts. It's tough having acne-prone skin, especially with all the pollution in the air. However, your skin type doesn't have to dictate your entire life. You can try some of the tips mentioned below to prevent acne before it even happens. 

People with acne-prone skin need to take care of their face and skin more than other people would need to. Companies like Skinfood make sure that their products are compatible with all skin types. Skinfood is a Korean brand of beauty, cosmetics, and skincare. Skinfood is a retailer and manufacturer company that creates safe, organic, and effective products.

Acne-prone Skin Causes And Symptoms

There are currently studies to work out why some skin is acne-prone. One of the main reasons is hereditary. It means that if your mother or grandmother has that skin type, then you're more likely to get it. Dermatologists are still trying to figure out other factors.

Here are some symptoms that you may have acne-prone skin:

● Your skin has a reddish color to the majority of your face, especially the area where acne appears
● Elements like dust, dirt, and others could easily cause breakouts
● Your acne breakouts are severe, and occasionally have spots with heads

Taking Care Of Acne-prone Skin

Most people, especially celebrities, often say that the best way to deal with acne-prone skin is to use anti-pimple creams or take some supplements. However, putting cosmetics without proper guidance or routine could be more harmful to your face. Aside from that, not all supplements or products are going to work for your skin. Some may even have adverse effects on you.

You can take care of your acne-prone skin by using the right Skinfood products and incorporating them in your routine. Here are the best tips on taking care of your acne-prone skin:

Avoid touching your face with dirty hands. One of the most common causes of breakouts is exposure of dirt into your pores. If you put your face in contact with unwashed hands, then your acne-prone pores will trap the dirt even more. The pores of an acne-prone face are susceptible to any foreign elements, so you must limit the amount of dirt you introduce.

Make sure that you wash your hands thoroughly before applying your skincare routine or else you'll risk getting worse breakouts. Check your nails before you use a product because they could still contain soil or dirt, which could contaminate your skincare item.

Introduce products to your face one at a time. Acne-prone skin is more sensitive than the other skin types, so it's essential to practice caution. One common misconception is that putting random skincare products together can help your skin.

If you're dealing with acne-prone skin, you need to remember that not all ingredients can help. While AHA or alpha-hydroxy acids and BHA or beta-hydroxy acids are typically known to be anti-acne ingredients, using them together could dry out your skin.

To start your skincare routine, you should do the following:

● Use only one pimple treatment at a time
● Buy your products according to acne-prone skin specifications
● Check the ingredients
● Follow any acne-prone beauty and skincare blogger so you will have more information on what you can or can't do
● Use trusted products like Skinfood that use natural ingredients compatible with acne-prone skin types

Layer your skincare products from thinnest to thickest. Your skin is like a sponge that wants to absorb all the goodness you are applying, so it is essential to employ the most lightweight products first. These are water-like products such as toners, serums, or essences. Heavy moisturizers and oils will be used next because they help in sealing everything in. Oil-based products, in particular, have occlusive properties that create a barrier between the air and the skin. Anything applied on top of them won't come in contact with the skin.

The Korean 10-step skincare routine has the products in the order of viscosity to maximize absorption. Therefore, it's good to familiarize yourself with the process to make sure that you don't accidentally deter your skincare.
