    Whether your skin is normal, oily or dry, remember to cleanse the skin at night. This is even more important than washing the face in the morning. The make-up, dirt and pollutants that have collected on the skin must be removed at night, so that when you sleep, your skin can “breathe”.
    Many of us like soap and water washing, because it has a refreshing effect. But, soap actually has an alkaline effect and makes the skin dry by removing natural oils and moisture. It can also disrupt the normal acid-alkaline balance.
    1 If you have a dry skin, soap can actually hasten premature aging by drying out the skin.

    2 If you have dehydrated skin with sensitivity, in the form of rough, red, flaky patches, avoid soap altogether.

    3 If you have an oily skin, avoid washing the face with soap and water more than twice a day. Rinse well with plenty of water. Frequent use of soap makesthe skin too alkaline and leaves it vulnerable to bacterial attack.

    Normal to dry skin: Use a rehydrant cleansing gel or cream, so that it provides emollients and keeps the skin lubricated and soft. After applying the cleanser, wipe it off with moist cotton wool, so that further moisture depletion is prevented.

    For normal to oily and combination skin, use a cleansing milk. Soapless cleansers or face wash are also available. They are in the form of a cream, which has to be applied on the skin like soap and washed off with water. One can select the face wash according to skin type.

    If you have a problem skin, with spots and pimples, choose a medicated cleanser or soap. They not only help to remove surface oils, but provide a fresh feeling.

    Cleansing grains or facial scrubs are useful for deep cleansing the skin and are ideally suited to oily skin and clogged pores. If you have a tendency towards blackheads, grains will help. Scrubs are also grainy in texture and help to dermabraze the skin, removing dead epitheleal cells and unclogging the pores. They should be rubbed gently on the skin and then rinsed off with water.

    Modern skin-care is based on individual needs. So, learn about your own skin and select your skin-care products according to the individual demands of your skin. It is the basis of a healthy skin.

    i used MeritVCO extra virgin coconut oil for skin care

    Dry skin happens more often in the winter when the cold air outside and heated air inside cause the humidity to be low. Bathing or showering too frequently, especially if one is using harsh soaps, may contribute to dry skin. When the oil glands do not supply enough lubrication to the skin, the skin becomes dehydrated.

    Serious skin complications, including a dry skin condition, can arise for people with type 2 diabetes. If you break out on the skin around your eyes, it could be the shellac in your mascara; buy a shellac-free mascara like Ecco Bella’s. Skin gets exposed to the elements, especially in winter, causing it to become drier.

    Get 20-30 minutes of sunshine daily on your arms and/or legs; sunshine triggers the body’s production of Vitamin D3, which is essential to having healthy skin. Eat at least two organic apples a day while working to clear up your skin; apples are good for skin health – organic so you can eat pesticide-free skin (most of the apple pectin is in the skin), which helps with constipation too. Eating fruits that are red or orange in color will help improve you skin health and help to prevent acne.

    Apply cool compresses to any itchy areas. Take fewer baths or showers; they’ll dry out your skin even more. Try using a humidifier if the air is dry and you have a severe skin condition.

    you can use bath oils and moisturizers every day, but MeritVCO Virgin coconut oil has the added power of healing. Use a thin layer of MeritVCO Virgin coconut oil under your make-up, if you wear it, to moisturize and soften your skin throughout the day. Dry skin contributes to fine lines and wrinkles; MeritVCO Virgin coconut oil helps prevent the onset by keeping the skin soft and supple.

    Functions of the skin are disturbed when it’s not clean; it becomes more easily damaged, the release of antibacterial compounds decreases and it’s more prone to develop infections. The skin supports its own ecosystem of microorganisms, including yeasts and bacteria, which cannot be removed by any amount of cleaning.

    Make sure to call your skin doctor or dermatologist when you have any open cuts or sores from scratching that won’t heal. If you’re still worried about your skin, or the problems persist, see your skin doctor. Continue using MeritVCO Virgin coconut oil and you’ll see the benefits in good, clear skin, free of dryness and other skin conditions.
