The trend nowadays is having a healthy glow on the skin. However, not everyone can afford to go to the dermatologist to have their skin pampered. Some resolve to use cosmetics but it only works as long as you don’t start sweating it off.
If you want a healthy glow but don’t want to spend as much as celebrities do, follow these simple steps shared only with you:
Wash Your Face before Sleeping
Start with a gentle makeup remover. To cleanse the eye area, soak cotton with clean water, and hold it gently over the eyelid and lashes to loosen eye shadow and mascara. For you to remove mascara, soak one end of a cotton-swab in water and gently rub the lash line to eliminate any leftover pigment.
And then, you can wash the rest of the face with a cleanser specifically tailored to your skin type. Got oily skin? Try a formula designed to help normalize the skin and reduce shine. For skin that’s acne-prone or blemished, a cleanser with salicylic or glycolic acid is a good choice.
Treat Your Eyes
Use an eye cream with SPF. Remember that the skin around the eyes is much more delicate than the rest of the face.
Invest on SPF
Though you have a sunscreen that promises a whole day protection, reapply them anyway, especially if you’re out from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M.
Wearing makeup? Go for a sunscreen in powder or spray-on and reapply every few hours to exposed skin. Never forget to check the expiration dates on all your products.
Don’t Neglect Your Neck and Chest
These are one of the first areas to show aging, so don’t limit skincare to just your face. As you care for your face, also care for your neck and chest. Apply anti-aging treatments, moisturizer and sunscreen.
For the smoothest skin possible, exfoliate the neck and chest area two to three times a week.
Adapt with the Season
As the season changes, our skin also begin to change, requiring different products for every season. This doesn’t mean you need to alter your entire routine, but you might need to change out a few items. During winter, invest in an oil-based moisturizer. During the summer, for skin that tends to be oily, follow your soap-free cleanser with an alcohol-free toner.
Heavy makeup, foundation or self-tanner isn’t always the answer. Wearing heavy makeup only highlights fine lines, wrinkles and other imperfections and makes you look older. Let the skin’s natural beauty shine by following a simple mantra for maintenance: Less is more.
Get Your Needed Beauty Sleep
Cell regeneration is the process where fresh, new skin cells replace old, dead skin. This happens quicker at night.
