Some people were born with great skin. For everyone else, it might seem like an uphill battle, but the truth is that good skin is within reach for most people. It's one of those characteristics, like being physically fit. Some lucky people are born that way, but others will have put forth an effort to be successful. Every woman knows the true value of a good skincare routine, but it's not always easy to know where to start. Luckily, I have some quick tips to make sure your skin stays healthy and glowing!
Tip #1 -Wash your face
In the morning as well as the evening, rinse your face with water, and rub a small amount of gentle cleanser in clean hands. Massage your face cleanser using gentle pressure. Then, rinse your face until you’ve removed all the cleanser and grime. Gently pat your face dry with a soft towel. If you wear makeup, you may need to cleanse twice at night. First, remove your makeup with clean water or make up remover. Try leaving dedicated eye-makeup removers on for a couple of minutes to allow the makeup to come off more easily and avoid rubbing your eyes. Follow up with a full-face gentle cleanse.
Tip #2 -Use a cleanser
Salicylic acid is a chemical exfoliant that helps remove dead skin cells and keep your pores clean. It's especially effective at combating acne because it keeps the pores clear of excess oil, which clogs them up. If you have oily skin or break out easily, adding salicylic acid to your routine might help reduce breakouts and prevent them from happening in the future. This ingredient can be found in cleansers, toners, face masks, and spot treatments. In addition to using salicylic acid products, you should also make sure to wash all makeup off before bed every night so that bacteria and dirt are left behind. This is a great way to avoid pimples!
Tip #3 -Moisturizer
Using a moisturizer both hydrates and protect your skin from drying out or flaking. Look for a lightweight lotion for the morning, ideally with SPF 30 or higher. In the evening, you can use a thicker night cream. Those with dry skin may want to use a cream morning and night.
Tip #4- Remember to take good care of your skin at home!
Before you can start treating your skin, it's important to know what kind of skin you have. Is it oily, dry, or a combination? Do some research or head to the dermatologist to get a definite answer. This way, you can make the most out of the products you use by picking lotions, washes, and masks that specifically target your skin's biggest issues.
As you get older, your skin becomes more sensitive, and how you treat your skin today will show in the future. Take the time to reassure yourself with the sensitivities of your skin and read the back of ingredients in your daily products. Remember to use sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun and to eliminate sunburns.
With all the stress, work, and life challenges, we forget to take care of ourselves at times. I hope this article has given you a better understanding of how important it is to take care of your skin. Spread the knowledge and share with a friend or family member! 😊
