Beauty Tips

What makes your skin look and appear unhealthy?

Image Skincare Beautiful skin starts with healthy skinA lot of women share the same dilemma – skin care problems.

Whether you have healthy skin or not, you need to have a proper skin care routine that you can complete daily in order to maintain or correct your skin problems. To make sure your skin gets the pampering and care it deserves, you first need to know what contributes to having unhealthy skin.

Your skin, like any other part of your body needs care and to make sure you are not triggering acne breakouts and skin dehydration. Here are the things that you should avoid to get better, healthy looking skin:

Drink more water

Not hydrating your skin: It’s time to drink more water – not only because it is good for your skin but it’s great for your overall health. Drinking 8 glasses of water and applying a moisturising cream can prevent acne breakouts and reduce the sign of aging.

Remove your makeup

Sleeping with your makeup on:This will clog your pores and prevent your skin from breathing. No matter how tired you are, always clean your face before going to bed.

Harsh Cleansers

Using harsh cleansers: This will only strip away natural oils that protect your skin against dirt and other damaging factors. Use mild cleansers instead – they are gentler and still effective.


Not enough sleep: Sleeping allows your skin to repair. Make sure to get enough sleep every day and you’ll wake up to a more fresh looking skin.

Use the correct amount

Thinking that more is better: When it comes to your skin, more is actually worse. More washing, too much cream or too much scrubbing can damage your skin and clog pores.

Correct order

Washing your face at the wrong time: Always wash your face after you have rinsed off your hair products. Some hair products contain pore clogging ingredients. Which when left on your skin for the night or day will damage your skin and not allow it to breathe.

Watch what you eat

Thinking that what you eat only affects your weight: Too many sweets and eating fatty food will not only make you gain an extra weight but will leave your skin looking unhealthy.

4 common skincare myths you should know!

beautiful womanWe would all love to have great skin; do you really know what is best for you? Whether you like to admit it or not, there are some skin care tips and parts of your routine you keep following because your Mum told you about them, or it’s what your friends are doing! However some common skincare “tips” can keep your skin from looking its best. Identifying the myths from the truth is essential in keeping your skin young and healthy.

Here are the most common skin care myths:

Skin should feel tight after washing

This is not true – after washing, your skin should feel fresh and supple. If not, you’re probably using a cleanser that contains ingredients that are too abrasive for you. Remember, any soap or cleanser that is too harsh can increase the appearance of fine lines and can even trigger acne break outs because it robs your skin ofits natural oils.

Anti agers could make your skin look worse

Anti agers will bring out the best in your skin – only when applied and used properly. For example, key rejuvenators should only be applied gradually. You can put on the cream once a week and then twice a week, until your skin becomes used to it – only then can you make it your every night routine.

If a product doesn’t work quickly, replace it

Everyone’s skin is different. While a certain product may work and produce early results for your friend, it may react differently with your own skin. Before you decide to replace a product, wait for about 8-10 weeks. Most products with active ingredients will work on everyone – just with varying degrees of success.

After age 40, SPF is pointless

What could be further from the truth, it is even more important. No matter what age you are, you will need a product with SPF protection. Your skin will always be susceptible to sun damage at all ages. Protecting your skin on a daily basis can allow you stop any additional damage and in some cases may even be able to repair previous damage. To safeguard your skin, wear a product with a 30 or more SPF everyday.

Holiday makeup tips for you to look your best!

Christmas MakeupIt’s December and it’s party time. Christmas and the holiday season are almost here.

Are you prepared, time to think about hairstyles, elegant dresses and holiday celebrations? Of course, your makeup should match your dress and style. When deciding on your holiday makeup style, there are some things you should take note of.

Holiday makeup for you!

This holiday season, wear something nice and look your best by wearing the right makeup. Here is some holiday makeup advice for you so you can look your best this season:

  • Glitter

Do use glitter. Glitter is festive and you can use it to highlight one part of your face. However, be careful not to overdo it. If you want to play with your eyes, use an eye shadow with glitters. Or a lipstick with a hint of glitter but do not apply them together. Remember to use one product with glitter one at a time.

  • Sleep

When you are attending a party, you often get home late and feel extremely tired. Don’t be tempted to sleep in your makeup. Falling asleep with your makeup still on can clog up your pores and it is not healthy for your skin.

  • Eyelash Extensions

Do make your eyes pop with eyelash extension. When you are dressed up in your holiday best, make sure you highlight your eyes with lash extensions. Eyelash extensions make your eyes fuller and reduce the need for mascara.

  • Lip Colour

Don’t use plain, red lipsticks. Most of us, red means Christmas and during the holiday season you will be wearing red lipstick just like everyone else. If you want to stand out, use plum lipsticks. The colour is intense and it stands out in the sea of holiday reds.

  • Ask for help

Do visit Active Skin Solutions beauty salon for makeup help. In case you are not sure with your holiday look, book a makeup session. To look your best, an expert help can go a long way.

What drinking water actually does for your skin?

waterYour skin contains approx. 64% water (depending on age, gender etc) which makes your skin looks healthy. However, too much heat and exposure to other harmful elements can cause dryness to your skin. This is the main reason why drinking water is necessary for your skin and brain’s health. Drinking plenty of water will keep your whole body healthy.

Why drink water?

You’ve heard it all before – celebrities and models saying that the secret towards their supple, glowing, always camera ready skin is to drink lots of water every day. While this claim might sound simple and easy, it’s true. Yes, drinking a lot of water can make a whole lot difference to your skin. Less water intake can make your skin appear duller, and wrinkles and pores are more prominent.

How water affects your skin

Water makes a big difference in skin’s health. If you think of your skin like a sponge, when the sponge is dry, it contracts, shrivels and becomes rigid making it difficult to bend. Put the sponge in water and it will immediately expand and return to its original shape and size. Just like a sponge, your skin needs that moisture to expand and return to its glowing state. When you drink water, you are refreshing your skin and allowing it to function as it was designed to do and this makes you look healthy and glowing.

By drinking water, your skin will look plumper and the sign of ageing are minimized – pores are less visible and wrinkles are less likely to appear. Isn’t it amazing what a plain drink of water can do to your skin?

Drink more water!

Keeping your skin hydrated all the time can keep your skin look younger and healthy. Every day, aim for 8 – 10 glass of water. Drinking enough water will also improve your general health. Drink your way to more, beautiful and healthy skin – drink water! Remember in hot weather or times of large amounts of exercise, when you are sweating you will need to drive more to replace these losses.

Coffee, tea and alcohol can also dehydrate you.

Hydrating your skin from the outside in

Need some help to hydrate your skin? Hydrating your skin from the outside in is also a great way to combat the stresses of modern life that dry out our skin. IMAGE Resurfacing Treatments are perfect to renew dull, dry and sun damaged skin.
