How to Determine Skin Tone

How to Determine Skin Tone
Have you ever been to a department store and wondered how to choose clothing or makeup colors to match your skin tone?  In other words, do you know what is your skin tone?  The wrong colors for your skin tone can make you look washed out or stick out like a sore thumb.  But if you know your skin tone, it's simple to always look good and choose the right colors for you.  Instead of spending hours under the sun to darken your skin tone, which increases the risk of skin cancer, or lightening your skin tone, it's best to work with the skin you have.  This article will teach you simple tips on how to choose the perfect colors for you.

What is My Skin Tone?
We call the two basic skin tones cool and warm.  There is a simple way to determine your skin tone and whether you are cool or warm.

Cool means you've got blue undertones.  Look at the underside of your arm, if the color of the veins appear to be blue, then you have blue undertones and you are cool.

If the veins appear green, you have yellow undertones and are therefore warm.

So remember:
Cool skin tone = blue veins
  • Cool undertones are mostly fair skinned people; those who have a pink complexion;  also dark brown skins with red tones, such as Native Americans.

Why Use Skin Toner

Why Use Skin Toner
Have you ever wondered what exactly is facial toner and what it is good for?  There are many brands of skin toners on shelves, usually next to the cleanser bottles or moisturizers.  This article will help you determine if you should use skin toner, how to use it and which is the best facial toner to buy.

What Does Skin Toner Do
Facial toners have been interchangably used with the terms astringents and fresheners.  Typically, skin toners tighten your skin and help close pores after you clean your face. A good skin toner should balance the pH of your skin,   close pores, and leave your face balanced, instead of different zones of oily versus dry.  Most facial toners contain alcohol, which may dry your skin as it tightens.  This may not be a good thing, since it may deplete your skin of natural essential oils and lead to premature aging and unhealthy skin. 

How to Use Facial Toner
You'll want to first cleanse your skin with the appropriate cleanser, based on your skin type.  Use a cotton ball and saturate it with your skin toner.  Gently swipe it across your forehead and nose, which are usually the most oily spots.  Let your skin dry naturally.  Follow with the moisturizer for your skin type and makeup.   

Best Skin Toner for Face
Everyone should consider their skin as sensitive.  Avoid facial toners with alcohol.  Cleure has an excellent alcohol free facial toner that is excellent for all skin types, including sensitive and  acne prone skin.  It is paraben free, gluten free, and fragrance free.

Vitamins Your Skin Needs

Your Skin Needs
Anti aging vitamins for your skin are vitally important.  Our bodies require vitamins and minerals to maintain health.  This is specially true if you're not eating a well balanced diet and stress is a daily part of your life.  Your skin, which is the largest organ of your body, also requires certain vitamins.  This article will help you understand the huge impact certain vitamins make on preventing aging.

Dermatologists have always known antioxidants are essential in reducing wrinkles.  Antioxidants include vitamins A, C and E.  Vitamin A acts by helping to neutralize the effect of free radicals.  These unstable molecules destroy skin cells and promote wrinkles.

Vitamin C is a ready made factory for synthesis of collagen, which is the key protein of the skin.  The elasticity of your skin will result in either sagging and wrinkles or firmness to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  Antioxidant Vitamin C also helps fight free radicals, helping to improve skin texture.

Vitamin E helps protect your skin from environmental damage from UV light, pollution and drugs.  This antioxidant also fights free radicals, resulting in improved skin health.
