The weather takes a toll on your skin, be it sunny, dry or rainy and you need to be conscious of that fact. If you want soft and smooth skin, you don’t necessarily have to have a full glam squad or buy every single facial product.
Granted; those products will probably help but these 5 tips on how you take care of your face will keep it glowing all the time!
Here’s what to do — and what you should follow.
1. Keep your hands off your face!!
Any touching — like resting your chin in your hand while you listen to your date talk about something or tapping your fingers on your forehead trying to remember where you put your phone. You’re probably touching your face right now. This mindless bad habit can transfer bacteria to your skin which will cause breakouts and clogged pores.
We keep talking about exfoliation on this site because it is necessary! To give your skin some major love, you’ve got to help it by ditching those dead cells. Exfoliation helps make skin soft and smooth. Exfoliate maybe once or twice a week because overdrying or over-exfoliating the skin can cause more problems with inflammation, worsening acne or rosacea, and creating dry and flaky skin.
3. Moisturize right after showering
Apply moisturizer when you’re barely dry from the shower so you trap water in the surface layers of the skin. Look for humectants that draw moisture to the top layer of your skin, like glycerin, hyaluronic acid, urea, lanolin, dimethicone, and petrolatum.
4. Prep before you shave
Using a shaving cream or gel isn’t just something you do if you’ve got time — skipping it can lead to irritation. Get one which will help the razor glide smoothly without pulling at the skin.
5. Join The #Dove7DayChallenge
