The skincare industry never rests. It’s always up to something; trying to find new ways to fight the signs of aging and skin damage. Recently, we’ve seen some quirky techniques that have come and rather than be a seasonal FAD, have stuck around. The short answer for why is, because they just work! If you are yet to hear about these, that’s normal. It takes a while for certain new facial skincare techniques to spread to all four corners of the globe. So here is your knowledge shortcut, as to what they are and how they work.
Avocado face mask?
Normally, we consider avocado to be a breakfast or snack-related item. However, because it is filled with great oils, vitamins and minerals, it’s being used as a face mask. One of the best brands in the skincare range, Kiehl’s, has a great avocado face mask that has been given rave reviews. It comes in the form of a wet paste so, unlike other face masks which may arrive in packaging and need to be placed onto your face, this product can be smeared into every nook and cranny on your face. Hence, it makes for a much more versatile face mask and can make every inch of your face plump, tortuous, and hydrated.
Many women are conscious of the fact that they have forehead wrinkles. These are not always caused genetically and can be due to overexposure to sunlight. However, there are also wrinkles that are difficult to hide. Here are some things you can do to minimize the appearance of forehead wrinkles.
- Daily sunscreen: Because the forehead is the largest flattest skin area of the face, it will also be the most exposed to the sunlight. So you should use a low-rated SPF sunscreen that can be applied every day without drying out your skin.
- Stay hydrated: You should aim to drink about eight 8 ounce glasses of water a day. This will give your skin the hydration it needs to stay tort and plump.
- Oily foods: Healthy oils that you find in fish and nuts are great for keeping your skin nice and vibrant, lowering the appearance of wrinkles.
There are lots of new and recycled facial skincare techniques that are circulating the internet. One of the tried and true options is safe Botox injections. They are minimally invasive, so there’s no scarring or bleeding. In fact, you can actually go in for a lunchtime appointment and return to work without any issue. Thankfully, a lot is known about the chemicals that are used, namely Xeomin, Dysport, and Jeuveau. They have passed every safety regulator and thus, more women feel confident to have this sort of process done, especially for areas that cannot always be helped by skincare products.
Facial skincare is a hot topic during hotter months of the year and this season is no different. Who would have thought that avocado would be the top product that everyone is raving about!?
