We are all different, and we should embrace and celebrate our differences because they make us unique. Still, as different as we can be, there are some things we all have in common, and love for clear and healthy skin is among them. Glowing skin has always been and probably always will be considered one of the epitomes of beauty among people of all ages and cultures, so it doesn’t come as a surprise to see a huge number of different skincare products on the market. If you’d like to keep your skin looking beautiful and healthy, we’ve prepared a few tips:
Drink more water
This is such a simple and basic advice that many people just forget about it, but it’s one of the most important aspects of skincare and one of the secrets of beautiful skin. Staying hydrated should be imperative, so don’t forget to take your water bottle with you every day and sip from it regularly. You should start your day with a glass of water (you can drink it warm with a bit of lemon juice if you’d like to boost your metabolism too). Aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day and try to replace a glass of juice and soda with a glass of water instead.
Use cleanser regularly
If you’d like to have luminous skin, don’t forget to clean it thoroughly every day. This will help keep it clean of impurities such as sebum, dirt, and pollution particles. By not doing so, you will end up with clogged pores and dull skin. Don’t be afraid to use face cleanser every day – in the morning, wash your face with a bit of cleaner and cold water to wake you up, and in the evening repeat the process but with warm water instead.
Take a break from makeup
Makeup is a form of art, and while it might be fun to experiment with all of your makeup products, you should be aware that it can be bad for your skin. Heavy makeup clogs your pores and can lead to breakouts, which will make you apply even more makeup to cover it up, and so you get caught up in a neverending circle. Instead, try to go makeup-free as often as you can. Instead of several layers of mascara and brow pencil start using eyebrow and eyelash growth serum to get thicker brows and lashes naturally. Use tinted lip balm instead of lipstick and wear just a layer of sunscreen on your skin. Very soon you will notice the improvement and your skin will recover.
Let it out, sweat it out
Nobody really likes being sweaty and smelly, but by sweating, you’re removing toxins from your body and your skin. Regular exercise will help keep your body toned and in shape and your skin clearer than before. Aerobic exercises such as cycling, jogging, and yoga will certainly make you sweat and improve your blood circulation. As a result, the process of cleansing your entire body will be accelerated in a perfectly natural way. You will soon notice that your face positively glows after you finish working out, and if you exfoliate and apply moisturizer after that, you’ll soon notice improvements.
Don’t forget to exfoliate
Speaking of exfoliating, it happens to be one of the best skin-brightening methods that leaves you with smooth and glowing skin. You will remove the outer layer of dead skin cells and notice that it’s much smoother and clearer. You can use simple face scrub that you can make in your own kitchen using natural ingredients such as honey, coconut oil, and granulated brown sugar. If you’d like something a bit more aggressive, you can try using a chemical exfoliant such as a face peel once or twice a week.
If you have sensitive skin and problems with acne or blemishes, you should know that all is not lost, even if you might feel that way sometimes. A good skincare routine takes some time to build and takes even longer to show results, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t get flawless skin overnight. Patience and dedication will certainly pay off and you will be rewarded with beautiful and healthy skin if you stick to the right routine.
