Throughout my skin care journey, I have learned a lot. I suffered with acne for the majority of my teenage life and the beginning of my adulthood. Therefore, getting clear and radiant skin was my sole priority at that time. What I learned in the past couple of years is what I would now like to share with you all. These tips are not groundbreaking, but just simple suggestions that you can add or tweak into your skin regime to help your skin look healthy.
- Drink Lots of Water.
This is something you may have heard several times from several people, but water really does help your skin look its best. Drinking atleast 2 liters of water flushes out all of the harsh toxins in your body and hydrates your skin.
Doing any form of cardio, such as jumping jacks or skipping rope helps promote blood flow throughout the body and in the face, causing your skin to build healthier skin cells. This was in fact one of the suggestions that I received from a homeopathy that I once visited.
- Massage Your Skin.
Massaging your skin increases blood flow, hydrates the skin, reduces any tension in the face, helps your skin relax and rejuvenate. You can massage your face with coconut oil, lotions or any other product that has a slippery resistance to it. When messaging, use curricular motions and avoid pulling or stretching your skin.
- Keep Your Skin Hydrated.
You should be using a moisturizer to keep your skin from feeling dry. Or else dry skin can cause premature aging of the skin.
- Do Not Over Wash Your Face.
In a day, you should be washing your face twice, once in the morning and once at night. Do not wash your face too many times per day or else you will strip away your skins natural oils and cause extremely dry skin. You also don’t want to under wash your face because your pores will clog up and cause breakouts.
