Skin Care Tips to Swear By
There is no doubt that glowing and healthy skin is on each and everyone’s list of goals for 2023. With the increasing knowledge of “Less is more” even Skin Care has been specifically curated to do only the perfect amount required. Gone are the days of over exfoliation and aggressive peels. Supported by scientific evidence, many skin care products have been introduced in the market recently, and many of the old traditionally used skin care ingredients with natural benefits seem to be making a comeback.
Let us have a look at some of the best skin care tips that we at Omeo swear by for our own use too:
- Double Cleansing:
A tip being promoted by almost every skin care enthusiast, double cleansing surely has changed the scenario for stubborn, oily and acne prone skin. However, it is not just oily and pimple prone skin that benefits from it. For dry skin as well it helps get rid of the old and dead skin at a much faster pace. While the first cleanser helps remove makeup, dirt and pollution collected through the day and is usually oil based, the second cleanser helps deep cleanse the pores and rid them of the tendency to black heads and sebum collection while healthily moisturizing the skin in the long term. This is so because it helps the products applied post the cleansing to absorb better into the skin and hence heal faster. Omeo’s Calendula Foaming Face Wash and Omeo Calendula Face Wash make a powerful duo for deep cleansing of your skin. Wash your face first with Omeo Calendula Face Wash which is gel based and helps rid the skin of your day’s collected impurities following up with Omeo Calendula Foaming Face Wash that helps rid the skin of deep rooted comedones.
- Regular Exfoliation but not too much!
While there are two modes of exfoliation now- One through the traditional scrubs and another by using chemical peelers, the traditional method seems to be required not more than once a week. This is because traditionally, the scrubs which act as physical exfoliators remove the dead skin and open the pores by means of sheer force unlike chemical peelers. However, this does not mean that they are not required. Along with removing dirt and dead skin cells, they also help remove the bacteria responsible for causing breakouts and infections. It is recommended to use scrubs with gentle pressure instead of brute force and use warm water along with it instead of hot water. Omeo Turmeric Face Scrub is an ideal product for gentle exfoliation on a regular basis topped by Omeo Turmeric Face Mask for a refreshing glow benefitted by natural ingredients such as Haldi and Ashwagandha.
- Massage to increase the blood flow
Ever noticed how your skin radiates after a facial or skin pampering session? Increasing circulation on and around the face area helps improve the blood flow and drain any accumulated and stagnated lymph in the area which helps improve the skin quality and provides a glow as well. One of the best ingredients to apply for this massage is Ginseng and as recommended by experts- Hyaluronic acid added to it is a great plus! Omeo Anti-aging Cream is one such boon which is blessed with these power ingredients. Not only is it imbibed with the best of nature’s ingredients for rejuvenated skin such as turmeric, ginseng, ginkgo, aloe vera and calendula, it is also enriched with the benefits of hyaluronic acid, peptides and vitamin E that work together to combat all skin issues such as pigmentation, wrinkles, dark circles and many more!
A skin care tip that has been promoted even by means of song- Remember “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)”? It sure deserves to have its own jingle since exposure to the sun causes the maximum skin damage and is also a potential cause of a monstrous disease- Skin cancer. Sunscreens come in all forms with chemical filters or with mineral filters. However, the age old lotion with its ease of application and blending well with makeup stands apart. Ideally SPF 50 is recommended for outdoor activities while SPF 30 works well indoors. PA filtration is another necessity. This is because UV rays are of 3 types: UVA, UVB and UVC. While, UVC are blocked by the Ozone, UVA and UVB affect the skin. Plain SPF provide protection from UVB while PA protection is required for UVA. This is so since UVB has a shorter wavelength and causes skin burning and tan, UVA has a longer wavelength and causes skin aging and is the main culprit for skin cancers. Omeo’s Turmeric SPF 30 and SPF 50 sunscreens come with PA protection that help in skin repair with encapsulated natural ingredients such as Turmeric and Kojic acid.
