I was talking with a friend the other day and he asked me about his skin care regimen. Even though I am not a dermatologist I am always willing to lend an ear and a bit of advice on proper skin care technique because without good skin care knowledge, good makeup is hard to achieve. As a makeup artist, I am on a crusade to encourage my clients and my readers about proper skin care. It doesn't take a lot of money to invest in a few good products. In my opinion, good habits will also help your skin just as much as that "million dollar" product.

What prompted me to write this post is that there are a lot of misconceptions about how to care for your skin. There are some old school remedies that work, but more and more research is taking place and proper education should be reiterated constantly. Large pores, dry skin, and excess wrinkles are concerns for most people as they age. Simple things such as wearing an SPF at all times can help slow down the progression of large pores and excess wrinkles. Sunscreen is necessary for ALL complexions at ALL times of the year! Unprotected exposure to the sun can increase the size of your pores. UV rays penetrate the skin layer even when the sun is not out.

Sunscreen also can prevent other skin issues such as skin cancer. Skin cancer has become a very common form of cancer and it stems from overexposure to Ultraviolet (UV) rays. I encourage everyone, no matter your skin complexion, to wear a sunscreen on their face and body at ALL times of the year. It is necessary to wear SPF even when the sun is not visible to the naked eye. This does not include wearing a foundation that has SPF ingredients. If your foundation has SPF, great, but don't solely rely on that to protect your skin. It is best to wear a separate specific SPF or a moisturizer with SPF.

Your sunscreen should be applied after you moisturize your skin in the morning. (You are wearing moisturizer, right?. That is another post!) If you are going to be outdoors reapplying your sunscreen is necessary every 2-3 hours. Even if you have not been wearing a sunscreen its not too late. Starting now can help previous possible overexposure not become cancerous. Also you will be establishing good habits!

If you have questions about SPF, let me know! More Skincare Awareness coming soon...

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being
    off-topic but I had to ask!
