Skincare is often on people’s minds and many tend to get confused with all the products on the market. It can be hard to know where to begin or what is needed for our skin.
Times have changed. Both men and women are more conscious of how they look and what impression they give. Getting into a good skincare routine won’t happen overnight. It takes effort, and trial & error. Some products will work better than others for your skin.
With that said, here are a few basic skin care tips that will have your skin thanking you with a glow in no time:
Drink plenty of water.
The body contains 60% water but sometimes we become dehydrated and it shows on our skin. Dehydration can make your skin itchy, dull and show more fine lines and surface wrinkles.
Water helps with:
- Reducing wrinkles & puffiness
- Faster healing
- Improving complexion
- Slowing down ageing
All in all, increasing your water uptake will always have positive results for your body, especially your skin.
Do the pinch test!
Lightly pinch a small portion of your skin around your cheek, if your skin does not bounce back after you let it go, you might be dehydrated.
Check your diet.
What you consume is reflected on the outside. Eating certain foods will eventually lead to skin breakouts and conditions. Foods rich in sugar may lead to acne breakouts and premature ageing.
Reducing the intake of salt, sugar and dairy products will have your skin thanking you with evenness, fewer breakouts and a clearer complexion in time.
Get enough sleep.
Lack of sleep will not only reflect on your productivity but will also show on your skin. When you do not get enough sleep, inflammation levels are higher. Inflammation contributes to outbreaks of acne, eczema, psoriasis and skin allergies. Lack of sleep also contributes to puffy bags and dark circles under the eyes.
Develop a skincare routine.
It can be tempting to try out a few things at the same time to see which works best. However, it is in your skin’s best interests to stick to one product at a time. Research shows that it takes up to 21 days to see noticeable changes when you start using a new product. Develop a system that involves using the same products daily. Whatever you choose, give it time and be consistent.
Wash your face twice a day.
Dermatologists advise using gentle cleansers, lukewarm water, and using your fingertips to apply the cleanser. Wash your face both when waking up and before going to bed. It is advised to never go to bed wearing makeup. Washing your face in the morning not only helps you wake up but gets rid of excess oils that your body released during the night. Additionally, washing your face in the evening helps to remove sweat and toxins you might have experienced during your daytime activities.
