Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle.
To achieve healthier skin, experts advise to stay hydrated, eat healthy foods and getting enough sleep. Using skin care products is also important. I know scouting for the best skin care products can be a bit tedious because there’s a gazillion in the market- but yeah, keeping a healthy skin can be pretty simple.
The basic skin care includes:
Washing my face as soon as I wake up is always an invigorating feeling. Make sure to use a cleanser that is gentle on your skin. Use exfoliating scrubs only once a week. Avoid using bath soaps as they may contain harsher ingredients.
After cleansing, I put a toner. Toning balances the skin. Getting a toner with hyaluronic acid boosts hydration and makes your skin more plump.
Moisturizing hydrates and softens the skin. Choose a face moisturizer depending on your skin type and concerns. I personally like to use a gel moisturizer that is water-based because it absorbs quickly. If your skin type is dry, try using a moisturizing cream because it’s usually oil-based.
If you have a little extra, I also suggest using face serum. Serums contain active ingredients that absorbs quickly in the skin. It also soothes sensitive skin and protects the skin from free radicals and future damage. Put face serum after cleansing and toning. This is to better seal it and to reap its maximum benefits. I like to use hydrating serums because it makes my skin look more plump, fresh and younger. It also reduces wrinkles and brightens and firms my skin. Again, there are different types of face serums depending on your need.
Protect with sunscreen. The use of sunscreen shouldn’t be restricted when hitting the beach only. We need to get protected under the harmful rays of the sun at all times and sunscreens help do the job. Aside from shielding us from harmful UV rays, sunscreen also helps to prevent premature aging, reduces risk of skin cancer and protects from sunburn. Our skin can still get damaged even under overcast weather so it is best to apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
