To get that glowing skin, that clear skin everyone but you seems to have, you should try doing these!
1. Figure out what works for you.
Whether you want to go to a dermatologist or just want to explore a handful of skincare products, you have to take the time to figure out what works for you. What’s your skin type? What are you doing to make it feel fresh and clean?
If you are able to go to a dermatologist (or if you want to!), they’ll be able to analyze your face and figure out what you should be using. If you prefer experimenting, that’s totally okay, just commit to it.
You have to give some time to this process and figure out what your skin likes and dislikes.
2. Wash your face at the end of the day, no matter what.
If you wear makeup (make sure you take it all off with wipes, coconut oil, or a makeup remover oil), wash your face.
If you don’t wear makeup, wash your face. There is so much in the air that can get on your face (oil, dirt) and the last thing you want is for that to get trapped in your skin.
3. Face masks!
There are so many different kinds of face masks that are specific to each skin type and specific to what areas you want to work on. If you have dry skin, there are face masks that will help moisturize you. If you want to brighten your skin and look more awake, there are face masks for that too.
Not only are face masks good for your skin, and a good thing to do in a self-care routine, they’re also fun!
4. Exercise! Seriously.
However you want to do it, however, it makes you happy. Do at-home workouts, take a yoga class, or maybe go to the gym. Just do whatever you need to do to get your body moving if you can.
Remember this: sweat can open your pores and exercising can reduce stress, which limits acne. Think about your skin and what it needs. Working out can help it.
5. Watch what you’re eating.
If you have intolerances or allergies to certain foods, avoid it like the plague. Seriously.
It’s weird, but your gut and your acne go hand-in-hand. Watch what you’re eating! Do better for yourself.
6. Drink water.
7. Beware of the products you wouldn’t expect to help your skin.
There’s a number of at-home products that are good for a DIY skincare routine: aloe vera gel, coconut oil, tea tree oil, toothpaste, apple cider vinegar, argan oil.
