“In polite society, a well-maintained skincare routine is one of life’s great successes.” -Violet Grey
Every single woman in existence is known to have desired perfect skin at some point in her life. After all, why are cosmetics getting so startlingly expensive if women were not persistently buying them?
However, if one maintained a good skincare routine and regimen then one would not necessarily need makeup to cover it all up but let it serve as an enhancer to an already flawless skin. If one truly desires flawless skin, one would need to have a good skincare routine and commit to it–because no matter how bad your skin may be, all you would need is a good skin regimen, not a miracle. Here are some tips to get you started:
1. Use the correct cleanser for your skin type
We all have different skin types and it is of paramount importance to know the correct cleanser for your skin type. True enough, we may use various lotions for various portions of our bodies such as using a particular belo lotion with a certain chemical to keep our hands smooth. But our faces would be an entirely different story. Those with oily or acne prone skin would be better off using a salyclic gel or benzoyl peroxide wash while individuals with dry mature skin should use a moisturizing glycolic or milky cleanser.
2. Drink the right liquids
Keeping yourself hydrated is integral to a flawless glowing skin but apart from that, it is just as important to know what you are drinking. Be meticulous when it comes to choosing beverages especially the minute you wake up. In lieu of the cup of coffee you reach for each morning, try drinking a shot of chlorophyll to brighten, hydrate and oxygenate your skin. It would drain your skin’s puffiness and is also good for cellulite.
3. Maintain a healthy diet
Eating helping after helping of fat and oily foods can cause your skin to break out so be sure to add something healthy to your diet as well. Omega-3 fatty acid is essential for your skin to retain moisture. So, with this in consideration, add flax seeds and walnuts to your salad for a more glowing skin.
4. Your fingers should rarely touch your face
Remember that your fingers come in contact with mostly unclean surfaces or everyday objects that harbor bacteria. The potential breakouts, not to mention diseases you can get from mindlessly touching your face throughout the day are endless. Apart from that, consistently touching your face with your fingers can even lead to wrinkles and scarring. With this in mind, make sure your fingers have minimal contact with your face as much as possible.
5. Avoid direct heat exposure
Besides watching out for the sun, it is just as important for you to keep an eye out from getting too close to fireplaces and heaters. These are also known to cause terrible damage on your skin as it may potentially be the cause of collagen breakdown and inflammation. When these objects are in sight, stay at least ten feet away and if you are ever within proximity of a bonfire (or an open fire), try to take a step back. Remember, if you can feel the heat on your skin, then it might be a sign you need to keep your distance.
