Skin is probably something that everyone will have problems with at some time during their life, whether that’s their teenage years or in adulthood, and that’s completely fine and extremely common. However, there are a few skincare tips and tricks that you can try out in your daily life to give your skin that extra boost that will not only improve its appearance but also its youth and longevity.
1. Drink Water
Now I know this one seems obvious and everyone recommends this tip to achieve healthy and youthful skin, but it really is the number 1 trick to achieving the glowy, smooth skin you’ve always wanted. Creating healthy skin from the inside out is a believe that everyone should truly live by, which is why drinking at least 2 litres of water every day consistently will ultimately give you brighter, smoother and younger looking skin. Drinking this amount of water daily is not only one of the best skincare tips but will also help with your general health, and I promise you will start to see the results very soon!
2. Wash Your Face Daily
Using a simple fragrance free daily wash every evening before bed will rid your face of all the germs, bacteria and dirt that your skin has collected throughout the day. If you struggle with breakouts or acne then this is a vital step in your skincare as you need to minimise the amount of bacteria that is on your face which will reduce the chances of further breakouts and help heal current ones. Especially, if you’re a person who likes to wear makeup, you should be taking extra care to wash your face after you have removed your makeup. This will ensure that all the remaining residue of the products you applied that day are thoroughly removed and will allow your pores to breathe. Trust me, your skin will thank you later!
Everybody, men and women, should be applying moisturiser every single day in order to boost your skins hydration. Preferably after you have washed your face with a daily wash as your skin may feel a little tight and dry, but anytime will suffice. Moisturising daily will ensure that your skin keeps its elasticity which will ultimately reduce the appearance of wrinkles, brighten your skin and aid in the healing of breakouts and acne.
This skincare tip may be a little more difficult to implement as many people can’t, or don’t want to, change their diets. However, this also relates to creating healthy skin from the inside out as your diet can cause a lot of breakouts. Consuming large quantities of alcohol or unhealthy foods such as chocolate, fast-food and processed foods can all increase your chances of developing wrinkles or acne, which are all things very much within our control; so why not give it a go and see if you can notice the benefits.
Exfoliating is something that you should be doing once a week. This is often enough that you are getting rid of all the dry and dead skin cells, but not too often that you are exfoliating away your skins natural oils and in turn may create sensitive or irritated skin. Weekly exfoliation will brighten your skin and due to the fact you have gotten rid of all the rough and dead skin cells, such as blackheads and dull skin, you will have a much more smooth and flawless base, perfect for any makeup base or simply looking super healthy and youthful.
