If you’ve ever stopped to admire a woman’s striking complexion, and wondered, “How does she do it?” Then join the club! Turns out, she wasn’t necessarily born with it but has developed some really good skincare habits over the years. If you occasionally face random breakouts or worry about a pimple popping up at the most unwanted time, you’re definitely not alone. There are numerous factors that can easily sabotage your route to clear skin. What you need are some everyday habits to easily get that blemish-free, glowing skin. Here’s how you can get it right –
Cleanse your skin, don’t strip it
The very first step to clear skin is a clean skin. Make sure you cleanse your face and neck to get rid of excess oil, dirt and dust build-up by using a cleanser or face wash (depending on your skin type). Cleanse twice a day – any more than that and you will be stripping your skin off its natural moisture.
Use broad-spectrum sun protection – EVERY FEW HOURS!
Most of the signs associated with skin aging have to do with prolonged sun exposure. It is the number one cause of skin blotchiness, tanning, wrinkles, and fine lines. A minimum of SPF 30 goes without saying. Also, remember, it is not enough to apply sunscreen on to your face and neck. Slathering a generous amount to all the exposed parts of your body is also essential. This sun shield will stay on only for a couple of hours, so re-application every few hours is a must.
Don’t forget to moisturize and hydrate
Balancing your skin’s water content is equally important. It is a myth that people with oily skin do not need to moisturize, so pick a moisturizer formulated for your skin type. Another secret for glowing skin is adequate hydration. Stock up on enough liquids and water-rich foods to deeply hydrate your skin from within. Dehydrated skin can appear dull and flaky, so make sure you give it enough nourishment.
Slough away the tan naturally
If clear skin is what you’ve got on your mind, then stay away from excessive sun exposure. It can cause discoloration and visible tan lines. In addition to uneven skin tone, the dead skin cells that hoard on the outer layer of skin can easily mix with excess oil and surface impurities that would sit in your pores and crush your healthy skin dreams. Include an exfoliating tan removal scrub in your weekly skin care routine to get rid of clogged pores, tan and flakiness.
We recommend using the Everyuth Naturals Tan Removal Scrub for face and body that gently scrubs away at tanned dead skin cells while uncovering your skin’s natural brightness. The powerful combination of detoxifying chocolate and vitamin-rich cherry makes it the best face and body scrub to remove tan and mildly exfoliate the skin. And the best part? It is super handy to carry along for your weekend getaways to the beach!
Clock in at least 7 hours of sleep
If you’ve ever woken up with a random breakout or dark circles under your eyes, then you know what we’re talking about. Lack of sleep and stress can take a major toll on your skin’s overall health by making it appear dull and lifeless. We know it’s easier said than done but a good night’s sleep and a calm mind can bring all the difference to your face.
