4 Steps to beautiful Skin

These are 4 great tips on beauty treatment, meant to give you great and healthy looking skin. Perfect for getting your skin ready for the Holidays.
The Basic 4-Step Skincare

Step 1: Cleansing
You can find a good cleanser at the drugstore. There's no need to spend $40 on a fancy wash. Avoid bar soaps
as they tend to dry out the skin
Choose a creamy cleanser if you have dry skin or a clear cleanser if you have oily skin.
Be careful not to cleanse too often. Washing at night should do you. If you have dry skin, consider cold cream like Pond's, apply cream, then wipe off, no water needed.
Never wash your face with hot or cold water (both can cause broken capillaries).

Step 2: Exfoliate
Exfoliation is the step most people skip in their weekly skincare routine
If you start properly exfoliating your skin, you will notice an almost immediate difference.
There are several ways to exfoliate skin: Microdermabrasion, chemical peels and retinoids.
Scrubs work by removing the top layer of dead skin cells that tend to dull your complexion.
Make sure you use a gentle scrub with tiny grains. Big grains in cheap scrubs can tear skin and cause more harm than good.

Step 3: Moisturize
A basic law of beauty is that everyone, no matter her skin type, should moisturize. Even if your skin is oily, it will benefit from moisturizers.
Moisturizers seal moisture into skin
When your skin is tight, it's crying out for moisture. Be careful not to overmoisturize -- this can clog pores.

Eye creams ?
The skin around the eye contains no fatty tissue and is therefore very thin and susceptible to wrinkles. Special eye creams are formulated to "thicken" this area.

Step 4: Apply Sunscreen
sunscreen can be the most important part of your skincare regimen.
The number-1 cause of wrinkles is sun damage
A great trick is to purchase two moisturizers: One for night and one for day that includes UV protection.Don't use moisturizers with sunscreen at night, the ingredients are not meant to be used 24/7 and can aggravate skin.
