Urban life and makeup can leave our skin dull and grimy. If you want to feel pretty and confident without your makeup, you need to have a clean skin. We prepared few easiest tips you should include in your daily routine to achieve perfect skin.
1. USE SUNSCREEN
If you still don’t use sunscreen regularly – it’s still not too late to start! Every girl should make sure she doesn’t leave the house without putting sunscreen on her skin. You’re probably asking yourself – why? Sun rays are bad for our skin (even when it is cloudy). Using sunscreen on a daily basis is mandatory to protect yourself from dreaded signs of aging and skin cancer. Sun rays break down the elastin and collagen in our skin causing wrinkles. Yikes!
When you get older, your biggest regret would be not wearing sunscreen every day. You sunscreen must be no lower than SPF 30 because lower SPF doesn’t offer adequate protection for your skin. Find a sunscreen that’s suitable for your skin type.
2. WASH YOUR FACE
Daily wash your face to remove all pollution and dirt from your dace. You can use your favorite skin wash product or just water. Make sure to wash your face once in the morning and once before bedtime. This routine will give your skin fresh feeling and help open up your pores. Also, it’s recommended to wash your face in cold water. Cold water will tighten the pores and reduce swelling.
Skin exfoliation will ensure your dead, dull, and dry skin cells don’t block up your pores and suffocate your skin. Scrub your skin twice a week. This is one of the easiest ways to ensure your skin looks radiant, healthy and clean. You won’t need highlight anymore!
Skin cleansing may not be enough to improve the condition of your skin. Moisturizers aren’t only useful for treating dry skin – that’s not all they do. Skin moisturizers can improve skin texture and tone, protect sensitive skin, and mask imperfections.
Every skin type needs daily moisturize. If you have oily skin and you think your skin doesn’t need additional moisturizing – you’re wrong. Though oily, oily skin still needs moisture because there’s a chance your skin gets oily because it doesn’t have enough moisture.
5. MASSAGE YOUR FACE
Facial massages are known for rejuvenating your face and improving the circulation – massage accelerates blood flow to the capillaries, bringing nutrients and oxygen to the tissues.
6. USE EYE CREAM
