The secret to good skin isn’t just about using the most expensive product on your face, or getting a trendy facial. Sticking to a consistent skincare routine is the best way to give your skin the nutrients it needs on a daily basis. Even though we all have different skin types, there are a few tips all women should try for good skin.
Cleanse every evening
It seems pretty simple, but a good cleanser is often difficult to find. Getting into the routine of cleansing every evening before bed is ideal since it removes those impurities lying on the skin all day long. Don’t choose anything too harsh or abrasive if you’re suffering from exposed acne spots since it can leave a scar.
Remove your makeup
And not just with a wipe. Think about how much makeup we all pile onto our face (neck and body) on a daily basis. Sometimes, the skin needs a deep clean even after using a makeup wipe. If you’re feeling lazy, use a lightweight micellar water which will remove any makeup residue, and doesn’t need to be washed off the skin.
Use an SPF everyday
Or try and find a foundation with an added SPF which suits your skin type. Women suffering from oily skin might find this a little difficult since SPF can only cause a heavier build-up of oil. Set your foundation with a light, translucent powder so it doesn’t get too oily throughout the day. Your skin will thank you!
Don’t pop your pimples
It might feel a little tempting to pop those pimples, but it’s really just a short-term solution. Busting your own pimples is actually a hazard since it invites a whole lot of bacteria into an open wound – not good. Apply a topical cream with a cotton bud, and let the pimple heal itself.
Many women feel a little scared when it comes to using an exfoliator since it can feel quite harsh. Avoid using micro-bead formulas which can actually scratch the outer layer of the skin and lead to irreversible damage.
Hydrate your lips
Especially during the summer, our lips can get dry and dehydrated. Use a matte lip cream and re-apply as often as you need to moisturise your lips.
Start using an eye cream
Although eye creams are often targeted to women in their 40s, it’s never too early to start using one. Opt for a lightweight, cream formula and dab it gently around the eyes until it completely soaks into the skin.
