Be good to your skin.
Our skin is the largest and sensitive organ on your body, made up of several different layers.
Stratum corneum: The Outer Layer
The stratum corneum contains dead skin.  The skin experiences a natural cycle every 30 days . In this, the upper layer of your skin (epidermis) sheds, generating  new skin from the middle layer of your skin (dermis). It is like a process where old skin removes and new skin forms. It is very important and easy to remove the outer layer of dead skin manually too. The process of removing dead skin cells is called Exfoliation. Using facial scrubs and other home made products, will remove or thin this layer. Removal of dead skin cells helps to generate good new skin and removal of Tan.
There are two ways for self-exfoliation ? Manual  and chemical method, which should be followed as per the skin type. Mechanical exfoliation uses a tool, such as a brush or sponge, or a scrub to physically remove dead skin cells. Chemical exfoliation uses chemicals, such as alpha and beta hydroxy acids, to gently dissolve dead skin cells.
There are five major skin types:
  • Dry. Dry skin need to be moisturized regularly.  To know if the skin is dry, one probably notice that skin gets even dryer in cold, dry weather.
  • Combination. Generally people have Dry ? Oily skin. It has the symptoms of Dry and Cold skin.
  • Oily. This skin type has excess sebum, the natural oils produced by the sebaceous glands underneath the  pores. This often leads to clogged pores and acne.
  • Sensitive. Sensitive skin is very prone to irritation by fragrances, chemicals, and other synthetic materials. One can have sensitive skin which is dry, oily, or combination.
Exfoliate can very well be done at home. There is lot of products which helps to exfoliate the Skin. The best ones are baking soda, finely ground sugar, coffee grounds, finely ground almonds, oatmeal, finely ground sea salt, cinnamon etc
Moreover skin glow depends on what we eat, drink, how much we are exposed to sun, pollution, dirt, how are we taking care of it. Our skin changes throughout the year, just like the seasons. So what works for us in the summer, often isn?t going to be the best remedy for the winter. One can hydtare te skin in two ways. One is  drinking enough water, which will  likely affect the appearance of your skin. In fact, one 2015 study found a strong link between drinking enough water and having healthy skin. Drinking plenty of water will help boost hydration from below skin?s surface.
And secondly, but very important, One need a more hydrating and intense moisturizer for the winter months, when the cold makes the skin dryer, and a lighter moisturizer for the summer. Ideally, with an SPF to protect our skin from the harsh UV rays of the sun.
"Beauty is in the skin! Take care of it, oil it, clean it, scrub it, perfume it, and put on your best clothes, even if there is no special occasion, and you'll feel like a queen."
- Fatima Mernissi.
