Exfoliation Is Important
Exfoliation of the skin is important because it removes dead skin that tends to block the pores of the skin. When one’s skin is exfoliated, it leads to healthier-looking skin and this can be done at least 2-3 times per week. It’s also essential to not exfoliate dry skin, as this leads to flakiness and skin irritation. Exfoliating also allows for skin products to properly enter the skin, which leads to better results. Try exfoliating and you'll notice a difference.
Staying Positive When It's Cold
It's important for one to remain positive during the later winter months because people are more likely to experience the “winter blues” due to the decreased exposure to sunlight and the shorter daylight time periods. Some people may also be clinically diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder or Winter depression due to this lack of sunlight. Additionally, one can also remain more positive in the winter by taking Vitamin D and/or B12 supplements and exercising more to increase one’s energy.
A scar results from our skin's attempt to heal itself after a serious disruption to its natural state. Such a disruption can come from a burn, abrasion, or a cut that results in a wound to the skin. The end-result is skin that heals in a manner that one finds cosmetically undesirable. The main thing to know about a scar is that it will never be totally gone, but there are ways to make it less noticeable and sometimes even nearly invisible. Depending on the texture and color of the scar, you may have several options, including: steroid injections; chemical peel; retinoid lotions; laser; and surgical excision. Rather than experimenting with expensive over-the-counter products, do your research and then seek out advice. Find an esthetician or plastic surgeon that has experience with the options listed above and get his or her expert recommendation on the right one for you.
