Do you have a hard time getting your skin to feel soft and touchable? If so, then this post is for you. In it, we will talk about a finishing method that will help produce smooth and touchable skin from head to toe with just four steps!  The first step in the process is cleansing. This removes dirt and makeup from your face as well as any oil or sweat from your body. Next comes exfoliation which sloughs off dead cells on the surface of the skin. Exfoliating also opens up pores allowing them to breathe freely which prevents clogged pores that can lead to blackheads and breakouts! It’s important not to forget hydration after all of this because dryness is one of the biggest causes.

First Take a Look at Skin Health

The health of the skin, or a measure thereof. The skin is the body’s largest organ and comprises many types of cells that act to maintain homeostasis by producing keratin, which is part of hair and nails, sweat glands that help regulate temperature through perspiration, oil glands that secrete sebum to lubricate hair and skin, cellular structures called melanocytes that produce pigment in response to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun, and nerve endings for sensations of heat, cold, injury, pain. Skin provides a physical barrier between an individual and his or her external environment. The disease can affect anyone or all parts of this system.

Skin health issues can be caused by a variety of mechanisms both internal and external.

  • UV Damage
  • Acne
  • Scarring
  • Sleep
  • Dehydration
  • Lifestyle

UV Damage:

UV Damage is a term used to describe the effects of ultraviolet rays on the skin. Ultraviolet light is divided into three classifications: UVA, UVB, and UVC. While these classes have different wavelengths of radiation, all of them are dangerous to the skin. Both UVA and UVB can damage cells in living tissue, resulting in wrinkling or drying of the skin, discoloration like brown spots (also called sun spots), premature aging, precancerous growths (actinic keratoses), and even skin cancer; penetrating deeper than UVA, however, UVC has its own specific harmful effects.

UV damage happens more often than one might imagine; people who live in cloudy areas like Scotland experience more UV exposure than people who live in sunny climates like the south of Spain because they are outside for more time. Also, people who regularly expose their skin to water are prone to have more UV damage than those who regularly cover it with clothes or apply sunscreen. People living at higher altitudes or near bodies of water also experience more UV exposure.


Acne Vulgaris (commonly called pimples) is a common skin condition that involves the oil glands at the base of hair follicles becoming clogged. The primary cause for this blockage is excessive dead skin cells and sebum which can plug up pores. It allows for bacteria to grow rapidly in these plugged pores. These lesions, when they occur on the face, are commonly known as ‘zits’ or ‘spots’. When they occur on other areas of the body where there are folds in the skin, such as the upper chest, they are known as ‘cysts’ or ‘boils’.

Acne can develop at any age but it most often starts during puberty – from stages 1 to 4 of acne development. It is common amongst all races and genders across the world. The age demographic that has emerged as being more prone to acne are those aged between 12-24 whilst those aged 45+ tend to have a lower rate of incidence.

In boys, the primary areas affected by acne include the face, back, and neck whereas in girls it tends to be limited to the face only with additional involvement of the upper arms. Teenage acne is rare before puberty begins and after 25 years old people hardly ever get pimples for some reason.

Both males and females – The pores on your skin become blocked by oil, dead skin cells, and other stuff. This causes blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, cysts, or other types of lesions. Depending on how serious it is, acne can be pink to red bumps with a whitehead center (pimples) or swollen blemishes that might ooze pus (cysts). These lesions start out as ‘closed’, meaning they do not have a visible opening at the surface of the skin. They usually stay under the skin until they receive enough stimulation to open up and release their contents onto the surface.


Scarring is the formation of tough, fibrous tissue. Scarring can be caused by acute injuries (e.g., burns) and chronic infections (e.g., acne), or autoimmune diseases (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis). Injury to internal organs may lead to adhesions between tissues that would not normally adhere to each other; in the case of the heart, this can result in a condition known as postpericardiotomy syndrome.

Some disorders that lead to excessive scarring are:

Burns can cause difficult-to-manage scarring. Burns may affect the eyes, resulting in blindness. Scar tissue does not contain sweat glands or hair follicles. The absence of these structures causes significant problems with the affected area. Other complications include joint contracture and increased susceptibility to skin cancer.

Scar types:

Hypertrophic: raised above the surrounding skin

Keloid: elevated scars that extend beyond the original boundaries of the injury

Contractures: loss of movement due to permanent shortening of muscle or tendon (after burns)

Atrophy: a decrease in size of affected tissue

How Our Lifestyle Affect Skin Health

We all know that a balanced diet and exercise are important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. While these actions indirectly aid in the maintenance of general health, it’s also worth noting that they can play a big role in how our skin functions.

It’s also important to pay attention to the quality and quantity of food eaten. For example, foods high in sugar can stimulate melanin production that may darken some areas of the skin. Similarly, eating excessive amounts of dairy products or salt is linked with poor complexion. Eating too much junk food on a daily basis takes its toll on your system over time – leading to the disease on numerous levels. The more unbalanced your diet, the higher your risk will be for related health problems including skin conditions.

Having good eating habits relates not only to how you nourish your body but also to your food choices. Be mindful of not only what you’re putting into your body but also the quantity; use hunger as a guide, and avoid eating when you’re not feeling hungry. You should select foods that are nutrient-dense such as fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, complex carbohydrates, etc., which will give your skin all of the things it needs to maintain a healthy appearance. It’s also worth noting that many popular diets nowadays center on improving health, including those for weight loss and heart disease prevention.

Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption both have negative effects on skin health, such as increasing the likelihood of developing cancerous growths.

Cigarette smoking is associated with adverse effects on the skin, including premature aging and the development of wrinkles, reduced blood flow to the area, and decreased oxygen levels. The outermost layer of skin (epidermis) gets thinner and contains less moisture because it does not receive proper nutrients from cigarette smoke. Furthermore, nicotine can cause discoloration of the hands by inhibiting new cell growth.

As a result of disrupted blood flow that occurs as a side effect of smoking cigarettes, smokers often appear pale or “yellowish” because blood is unable to deliver adequate oxygen to the body’s cells. One study found that smoking significantly increased one’s risk of developing non-melanoma skin cancer, the most common type.

According to another study, smokers have been found to have a 3 times greater chance of developing squamous cell carcinoma than nonsmokers. In addition, cigarette smoke contains damaging free radicals that can increase the rate at which collagen breaks down in the skin leading to premature aging and wrinkling.

Follow This 3 Step Make up Technique

Typically, the difference between oil and combinational skin types is if you have an oily T zone or areas on your face that tend to be drier. However, all skin types benefit from these steps.

When it comes to makeup application it is very important to use moisturizers or primers underneath your foundation. This gives a soothing effect to your skin, and it also keeps your makeup in place.

If you don’t already know what kind of skin type you have, spend a day outside without any moisturizer on your face. When you come inside take notice of whether your face feels more oily or dry. Then look at the areas on your face that feel more dry surface for applying foundation.

Start with Primer

Primer is a vital step in your makeup regimen. Without it, you’re going to have a tough time getting that perfect finish. And if you have oily skin, the primer will be essential for keeping your makeup from sliding off your face.  But what’s the best kind of primer? How do they work? And which one should you use on different parts of your face? Keep reading to find out!

Primer- a product that goes on your face before makeup, it can be used to keep makeup in place all day or to give you a smooth base. It is an essential step for creating an even canvas for foundation applications. Even if your skin isn’t oily, primers are great because they minimize pores and keep makeup in place.

There are many types of primers with different purposes; some will help your makeup last longer, while others are geared toward reducing large pores. Pick a primer that is the correct color for your skin. 

Use Lightweight Foundation

Use a lightweight foundation and a heavier concealer or contouring product to create a shadow under the eyes. Apply your concealer one shade lighter than your skin tone on eyelids and blend everything together with a damp makeup sponge.

Be careful to use only as much necessary for this step so you won’t look caked up. You can also mix in some moisturizer or highlighter onto your concealer to make it blend easier. Apply a flesh-toned foundation over the eyelids and blend with a makeup sponge if necessary. Make sure everything is blended smoothly.

There is nothing worse than spending time on your makeup only for it to smudge, melt or disappear before you’ve had the chance to enjoy it. With these tips, however, you can create a long-lasting look that will last all day and into the night.

Finish Your Make Up with a light powder and a setting spray

If possible, finish your makeup routine by using both a light powder and a setting spray. This will help prevent any oil build-up throughout the day which causes sweat and sebum to transfer onto the face. Not only does this ruin your make, but it also makes you more susceptible to dangerous UV rays from sunlight!  

A translucent setting spray will soak up excess oil. It will also make your skin matte, which helps to remove any dewiness after using cream or moisturizing products. Allow the spray to dry for 15-20 seconds before applying powder on top of it. Finish with translucent loose powder, which gives you even coverage and prevents shine or an oily glow throughout the day while still keeping your face matte!    

If you are planning on wearing eye shadow, finish your look by setting it with a colorless eyeshadow base.   

Take Away

There are many ways to improve your skin and the way you live. For instance, eating fresh fruits and vegetables will help keep it healthy by providing vitamins A, C & E; staying hydrated can reduce dark spots on your face caused by sun damage as well as lessen inflammation throughout the body which leads to smoother texture in both dry or oily areas of one’s own personal makeup routine (this also goes for not wearing makeup at all). Lastly don’t forget about short-term things like using a primer before applying any foundation so even those small flawed places get covered first then going light-handed when adding remaining products such as heavy eye shadow etc., remembering uniqueness is key.
