It isn’t easy keeping up healthy, glowing skin. Normally, one of the best practices to keep your skin smooth and gorgeous is with a rejuvenating facial from a true skin professional. Though sometimes getting a facial is easier said than done. It can be hard to get into the salon for a treatment, so we’ve got some skincare tips to improve certain concerns, look younger, and have overall stunning skin without a blemish in sight. Work this advice into your own routine to get a few of the benefits of a facial while at home.
Use what you have around the house - Does good skin have to come with a high price tag? Absolutely not. Most times you can take care of your skin, stopping problems like acne, dryness, even signs of aging, with just a few natural ingredients you have right there at home. Items like cinnamon and honey can easily combine to create an acne-reducing mask or swap out the cinnamon for yogurt for anti-aging benefits.
Think about your skin from the inside out - The state of your skin is a reflection on how you feel and take care of your whole body. When acne starts to act up or you can’t seem to get rid of the bag under eyes, the culprit is your general wellbeing. Making sure you take care of yourself lends a major hand to having flawless skin. For truly unbelievable skin, you need to be eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, and managing stress.
Hop in the shower to clean your face - If you really want to clean deep within the skin, then add face washing to your shower routine. After just a few minutes under the warm water, your pores will open up, so your face wash can eliminate more of the dirt that’s built up in your skin. Just a reminder though, don’t go too hot on your water temperature, or else you risk drying out your skin.
Put on your sunscreen - As the days get warmer with summer, applying sunscreen is essential for your skin to survive in the intense sun. The barrier created across your skin will save it from ultraviolet damage that shows both immediately and more so as you age. Even if you’re not planning on spending a lot of time in the sun, the smallest amount of exposure can be disastrous. So work sunscreen to your morning skincare so you never have to worry.
