While younger people take their skin for granted, others spend thousands of dollars yearly on products that promise them dewy, healthy and youthful skin. These said products claim to keep the signs of aging at bay, including wrinkles, age spots and dry skin. These are also the same products that promise to prevent acne and other skin imperfections. While these expensive products can be beneficial for your skin, there are other facial skin care methods, including the use of facial steamer, which can also help maintain a youthful skin.


Here are the top five facial skin care tips you need to use:


1. Stay out of the sun or use a sunscreen. Skin experts have long warned people out of staying under the sun without protection.  While sporting a balanced and beautiful golden skin in the summer can reel in some admiration and appreciation, it will also give you skin damage in the process. Constant sun exposure is believed to be the culprit for age spots as you grow older. Sun exposure is also believed to exacerbate acne in people who are prone to getting them. Avoid any activities under the sun as much as possible. If you cannot avoid such activities, remember to use sunscreen adequately.


2. Stay hydrated. Out body is made up of 70% water. As such, drinking eight glasses of water on a daily basis can help the cells in your body, including your skin cells, maintain homeostasis. Another benefit of drinking an adequate amount of water is that it helps your body get rid of the toxins that may manifest themselves through blemishes, acne and dry skin.


3. Exercise.  Regular physical activity helps increase the blood flow, thereby keeping the skin cells healthy, promoting the excretion of waste products as well as harmful free radicals, which are known to cause damage to the skin. Furthermore, exercising can also help you decrease stress, which is known to exarcebate certain skin conditions such as eczema and acne.


4. Moisturize. If there is one secret on earth that most people need to know in order to take care of their skin, it is to moisturize as early as possible. Moisturizers do not only keep the skin hydrated and soft, it also helps protect sensitive skin as well as improve your skin tone. There are different types of moisturizers that you can choose from, depending on the type of skin you have. They usually offer moisturizers for people with normal skin, dry skin, oily skin, combination skin and mature skin.


5. Use a facial steamer. Steamers are known to emit steam directly into the face which helps to promote skin blood circulation, softens and opens pores for easy removal of dead skin debris and dirt as well as allows for deep cleansing, re-hydrating and rejuvenation. Some people with acne find that steaming their face at least once or twice on a weekly basis has helped improve their skin condition. There are also different types of steamers you can choose from.


If you want to have a dewy and youthful skin that is the focus and envy of many, you have to work hard at it.  Consider using sunscreen, exercising regularly and purchase a facial steamer to use often and don’t forget to moisturize regularly.
