Tips on how to cleanse our skin and keep it hydrated

We always have to keep our skin well hydrated irrespective of our age, because proper hydration is key to skin's health and elasticity. Leaving the skin too dry can result in flaking and blemishes, as well as the appearance of premature wrinkles. On the other hand well hydrated skin will bring back the youthful look of your face and you'll have a natural, healthy glow.

Essential care for the skin is the proper cleansing of the face. It's a must to have a cleansing ritual every evening before going to bed. Choose the right natural products that are gentle to the skin, without harsh chemicals in their composition. They have to cleanse well, to nourish the skin, to have a soothing effect and not to dry out the skin.

These are our tips for proper cleansing and hydrating the face:

Cleansing Tip 1: Wash your face and neck with your favourite natural product - it can be foam, gel, lotion or whatever you like to use. Just make sure if you use lotion that you have to wash your face afterwards.

Cleansing Tip 2: After you've washed your face, take a cotton pad and gently run through your face with toner, floral water, micellar water or some other product that matches your skin type. By doing this you are providing an extra deep cleansing of the pores and preparing the skin for the next products that you'll apply.

Cleansing Tip 3: In the morning we suggest you wash your face only with lukewarm water and dry it off with a soft cotton towel. After that apply some toner or floral water with a cotton pad.

Extra tip 1: It's important to exfoliate your skin at least once a week with gentle exfoliating products - natural store-bought or homemade ones. Exfoliating assures that skin is deeply cleansed and all the dead cells are removed. This boosts skin's regeneration and increases production of new skin cells.

Extra tip 2: Massage your face everyday. Try to set aside 10 minutes a day to take special care of your skin by giving it a gentle massage while applying your skincare products. This will increase blood's microcirculation, it will help for cells' regeneration and make the creams you use much more efficient, because they will penetrate deeper into the skin's layers.

Two of the most important things to keep your skin hydrated is to drink a lot of water and to use moisturizers of course. You should always aim to use high quality products, with a lot of natural ingredients in their composition. This will assure you are getting the best skincare possible and you can expect great results in the long term. Saying this we have to say Bioxelan meets the criteria for the perfect anti-aging moisturizer. It's full of natural ingredients that have powerful hydrating properties and is an amazing anti-aging cream to include in your daily skincare routine.
