All About Exfoliating for Organic Skin Care

If the Bible were about skin care there would only be five commandments. Exfoliating is the second of the five commandments of skin care. Unfortunately, most people actively follow only one of these five commandments/rules; most people only do 20% of what they should be doing for proper skin care. Dermatologists, cosmeticians, and beauticians could, and have, for years given tips and recommendations for great skin care. However, most of these tips are irrelevant or are less effective if you are not fulfilling the five most basic rules, needs, necessities, requisites, and requirements for great skin. These five rules should be considered the foundation for any great skin care system. Like any foundation, they can be built and expanded upon (for example by the said tips by skin care professionals mentioned above) – you just have to get the basics covered first. We recommend that you use organic and all natural skin care products because the dangers of using harsh (potentially carcinogenic) chemicals on your skin are simply not worth the risk – however, even before you consider using organic skin care products you should at the very least be following the five commandments of skin care.ExfoliatingAlthough exfoliating is one of the most important steps in a skin care regimen, it is far too often completely skipped by people. This is a big skin care mistake; every type of skin will benefit from exfoliation at least twice a week. The reason that you need to continually exfoliate is because the lower layers of skin regenerate new skin cells and new skin which are pushed up to the top layer of the skin leaving dead skin on the surface layer. Exfoliation will remove these dead skin cells as well as any excess oil, dirt, makeup, dust, harsh chemicals, and any other pollutant left on the top layer of the skin after cleansing. Effective exfoliation leaves the skin soft, refreshed, and smooth. Effective exfoliation will also allow toners and moisturizers to penetrate deeper into the skin. A note of interest here is that in the same way that exfoliation opens up your pores for toners and moisturizers to penetrate deep into the skin it can also allow dirt, dust, harsh chemicals from skin care products, and other pollutants to penetrate deeper into the skin so you want to make sure you close your pores before going about your day. It has been suggested that men have softer skin than women over the lifetime of their skin likely because they shave everyday which helps to remove the top layer of dead skin which is a form of exfoliation in itself. These dead skin cells need to be gently exfoliated off the surface layer to prevent clogged pores.Just like cleansing, you want to make sure that you do not over-exfoliate which can cause surface irritation and redness and may cause your natural oils to spiral out of control. You also want to make sure you gently exfoliate in a circular motion. Do not scrub too hard; your skin is not a garage floor and should not be treated like one. Be very gentle with your skin to prevent premature aging. You may want to aim to exfoliate anywhere from twice a week to every other day. You will have to do some trial and error to find the right balance for your skin. Some people like to use an exfoliating cleanser to keep things simple but if you insist on having two separate products like we suggest it is best to cleanse before you exfoliate so that you can clean dust and grime off the top layer of skin before opening up your pores. Just like cleansing, you want to spend about three times longer rinsing your skin than scrubbing. Also, some people only like to exfoliate in the winter months or use different scrubs for the summer months and the winter months. This is because in the winter the dead skin cells on the surface can dry your skin out even more so than summer months because the skin is already prone to drying and produces less sebum in the summer. For this reason, at Giddy Organics, we offer scrubs that are designed for winter months as well as scrubs for summer months.

Womens Ski Apparel Fabric Treatment Helps Skier Against Internal Humidity

There is no such thing a waterproof fabric simply because of their weaving. As no matter how fine the fabric weaving is, they still leave tiny gaps between the threads. To make womens ski apparel waterproof such as the outer jacket, it must undergo a water repellent treatment.Water treatment is a process applied to the surface of the fabric that let the drops of water slide instead of seeping on. But then this process does not make the clothing totally waterproof. Water pressure has the power to make drops of water go through, and constant washing wears off the water repellent treatment. But then this problem can be alleviated by buying water repellent spray to revive the clothing’s waterproof feature. Fabric treatment can be either hydrophobic and oleophobic, which means they also repel fat, therefore keeping the fabric clean longer.Outdoor clothing and womens ski apparel has water resistant. There is certain clothing that should be waterproof instead of water repellent. It will protect you from a light rain, but will eventually allow water to seep through and get you wet. Waterproof means that it will keep water from seeping through even in a heavy rain. That being said, a water-repellent fabric is more than enough for alpine skiing clothing. However, clothes that are really waterproof are preferable when hiking.Coating (a layer of plastic material) a fabric or adding a detached membrane to it will make this fabric waterproof. When used for sport activities, it is necessary to choose a coated fabric or one that has a breathable membrane system such as GORTEX that evacuates sweat by allowing the moisture vapor to evaporate. One way of testing if the womens ski apparel is coated is the feel of the fabric and the noise it makes. Or you can take a look at the back of the fabric, which usually look different than the front often, whiter or shiny.
