Just like good food and nice clothes, great skin is equally important. Food for your skin first calls for a proper skin care regime for which we bring for you ten amazing skincare tips. Read on to know how you can get that glowing skin you always dreamt of!
The first thing that you should determine is your skin type. Skin types usually fall into three broad categories; dry, oily and combination. Once you are done determining, you can easily choose products for your skin type.
Make sure that you cleanse your face properly daily. How to clean your face is an important question here. For that, firstly, invest in a good quality cleanser according to your skin type and take some cleansing lotion on your fingertips. Rub it in upward motions on your facial skin for a good minute and then rinse it with a cotton swab before washing your face with cold water. Make sure to wash your hands as you don’t want any bacteria to get in touch with your facial pores.
Pat dry your face after cleansing it and dab some good toner on your face. Rose water works best in this case. Let it dry naturally. Toner helps massively in restoring the natural pH of your skin. Avoid the eye area while applying the toner.
Once the toner dries up, follow up with a high-end moisturizer. If you have oily skin, take a pea-sized amount of moisturizer for oily face in your palms and gently apply in upward, circular motions on your face. The CTM routine that includes cleansing, toning and moisturizing should be done regularly to make your skin look healthy and fresh.
To get rid of the dead cells on your skin, scrubbing is a must. Get your hands on a good quality exfoliator and scrub your skin once every week. It would clean up your pores. Apply the scrub on the sides of your nose, chin area and forehead. However, scrub gently and not too hard. Also, never scrub your face regularly as it may lead to open pores.
Once you are done with exfoliating your facial skin, apply a cooling face mask all over your face. There are several types of masks available in the market ranging from soothing masks to natural homemade masks. For example, a mixture of turmeric, milk, and honey can give you an instant glow and is the perfect face mask for oily skin. Similarly, crushed up cucumber and milk applied on the face freshens up your face. Apply homemade masks for no more than fifteen minutes.
No matter how itchy and irritating your skin feels, never wipe it off with a dirty towel as this leads to bacteria build up. Many people involuntarily touch their faces again and again, and this should be completely avoided so as to get rid of pimples and prevent any skin allergies.
Although pimples pop up in the most prominent places on your face, avoid the temptation to squeeze them, at all costs. No matter how much they itch, leave them alone since if you don’t, they will leave behind dark spots that would be even harder to get rid of.
Water has some magical benefits for the skin. Much to our surprise, this heavenly gift is for free and nature’s gift for us. Chug in your eight glasses of water daily as water helps you detoxify. It releases toxins from the body and makes your system internally clean.
I can do without makeup, said no woman ever. Therefore, use the right cosmetics for your skin, those that do not cause allergies or breakouts. Test and try and within a short span of time, you would get to know what suits your skin the best. A homemade facial does wonders too.
