We can fake perfect skin with the right makeup, but truly beautiful skin takes a lot more work. If your skin is not your best asset, don’t blame it all on your genetics. Our genetics are responsible for some of our skin attributes, but a large part of our skin health comes down to how we take care of it. Most women with beautiful skin invest a lot of time on it. Having great skin doesn’t have to be about expensive dermatologist visits. These seven habits are very easy, but will have your skin glowing in no time.
1. The Sun Is Not Their Friend
It’s never too late to start protecting your skin from sun damage. If you spent your teenage years frolicking in the hot sun, without a tube of sunscreen in sight, don’t be demotivated. It is true that sun damage is cumulative, but you can always prevent it from getting worse. Always wear a sunscreen
2. They Know Their Skin Type
Your skin is unique. Following the latest skincare fads won’t really do much good if they’re not right for your skin type. For example, while many people swore by coconut oil for their face, others experienced severe breakouts because of it. To be entirely sure that you’re doing the best you can for your skin, get a professional evaluation done. When you know what your skin needs are, you can pick out the best products to nourish it.
3. They Know Great Skin Starts From The Inside
Barring the lucky few who have perfect skin with absolutely no effort, most women with glowing skin are very mindful about their diet. They eat
4. Sleeping With Their Makeup On Would Be Sacrilegious
We’ve all had nights where we’re too tired or drunk to remove our makeup before going to bed. This is extremely bad for our skin because it can inhibit cell turnover, clog our pores and cause breakouts. Always, always wash your face, no matter how exhausted you are. You can even go a step further and double cleanse with an oil to remove every trace of sunscreen and makeup.
5. Use Natural Remedies In Your Skin Care Regime
It’s always handy to keep a few DIY recipes
6. They Pick The Right Exfoliator For Their Skin
Exfoliation is an indispensable part of a good skincare regime. The top layer of our skin is largely composed of dead skin which should fall off to reveal new, fresh skin. You can speed up this process by exfoliating the dead skin cells and revealing your glowing skin underneath. The exfoliators most people are familiar with are rough, nut kernel based one which are very harsh on our skin. Rubbing these exfoliators on our face can cause miniature tears in your skin and damage it in the long run. Always choose exfoliators that are not harsh on your skin.
