Skincare is very crucial part of our daily regimen and I m sure you must agree with me on this. The way we eat food, drink water and exercise all causes impact on our skin. If your skin has blemishes, wearing makeup can hide them but cannot cure them. It’s okay to wear makeup, but you should allow your skin to breathe so that it can heal itself. Good skin care can make you feel more confident and embrace your natural beauty.
The tip which is on top priority is applying sunscreen and understand the need to wear it every day. Consult a dermatologist and realise which type of skin you have and then start treatment accordingly.
The environment, lifestyle, habits and food can affect our skin health and you must take care of all.
Things to-do for your skin
Cleanse Tone Moisturise.
One of the most basic steps in a good skincare routine is CTM. Our skin can pick up dirt, dust and smoke in our everyday surroundings, which is why cleansing is so important. Toning the skin can close the pores. Moisturising keeps the skin hydrated and makes it look fresh.
If there’s one item of skincare aside from cleansing and moisturising that is necessary, it is wearing sunscreen. Sunscreen should be part of your daily routine.
Drink enough water.
Drinking enough water affects our body and mind. It hydrates our body and our skin will thank us for it. Drinking enough water at least 7-8 glasses of water to get rid of the toxins inside the body.
Get your beauty sleep.
We need a good amount of sleep per night at least 8 hours of sleep every day, as the skin needs to repair. That’s why they call it beauty sleep because it allows our skin to keep healthy rather than become dry and dull.
Using products that are effective for your skin type.
There are ingredients in products that can be more effective than others, as well as products that are suited to certain skin types. In the past, I used a cleanser that over-dried my skin and caused redness which took me a lot of effort to recover it. So it’s always recommended consulting a dermatologist to know your skin type.
Your skin can behave differently in different weather and conditions.
Minimising long sun exposure.
Excess of anything can be bad. Vitamin-D which is provided by the sun is very good skin but an excess of it can be harmful. UV rays from the sun can cause wrinkles and sun burn. It’s important to get a certain amount of sun every day, but try not to stay under the sun for long periods of time.
Wash your pillow case regularly.
The pillow case can collect dead skin cells, bacteria and oil. Make sure to wash it once a week or every fortnight to avoid your skin collecting the germs.
Eat a healthy and clean diet.
Making sure you eat a healthy balanced diet include foods that are beneficial for the skin. It makes sense that the healthy food you eat will reflect on your skin.
Things which are Bad for Skin.
We all like to have a good skin, but unfortunately, we all make these mistakes which harm our skin to an extreme level. These are the things which we should avoid to get a good skin.
When we feel stressed we frown more, which can cause stress lines. Long-term stress can also cause the skin to break out as stress increases the amount of hormones, which can cause the skin to become oilier.
Smoking and drinking alcohol.
Everything in moderation, but if one smokes or drinks too much, it can have a bad effect on the skin. Alcohol can dehydrate your skin, which makes it more prone to wrinkles and dryness. Smoking increases the likelihood of getting some skin cancers and leaves your skin sallow.
Over washing the face and hot water.
Hot water can dehydrate the skin and cause it to have a dry texture, and over washing can cause it to be stripped away from its natural oils. Use a luke warm temperature that’s gentle for your face.
Touching your skin.
It’s best to resist popping pimples because they can spread bacteria and can sometimes encourage the acne to worsen. Sometimes, when we feel irritation it’s best not to pick at the skin, as it can cause inflammation.
Don’t talk too much on the phone.
Talking so much on the phone.
Our phone has bacteria and grime on it, as we tend to use our fingers to touch it constantly. When using the phone against your face, it can encourage bacteria and acne to grow.
Going to bed without removing your makeup.
If you wear foundation and eye makeup, it can leave dirt and oils on your pillowcase. It’s also bad for your skin because the makeup will cause clogged pores.
Eating too many sweet foods, fast food and dairy.
If you’re a sweet tooth like me, this is a tricky one, as sugar can affect the skin’s collagen and elasticity. Collagen affects how resistant the skin is to wrinkling.
