Hello my dear reader,
today I want to share with you my top 5 tips for a healthy skin that can make a great difference starting from 4 weeks. These are the things I’d recommend to my best friend and are the basis of any skincare regimen.
They might seem very obvious for all the skincare-junkies out there, but I have imagined some readers might have never really bothered about having a skincare.
1. Never ever go to bed with your make-up anymore
Just don’t do it please! Those 5 extra minutes in the middle of the night will make a difference on how your skin. She will be grateful. Also avoid sweating with your make-up on. I know it’s tempting to go to the gym with your best cat-eye look. But the sweat along with the powder on your skin and the pollution from the outside are a lethal mix for your skin. Nobody expects you to look perfect while your working out!
2. Invest time and money in cleansing
It doesn’t have to be very expensive, you don’t have to spend 50 euros on it, but a 3 £ one will certainly not be as good as a 30 £ one (not all the times, see some very good ones here). Once you have a cleanser, use it properly to wash your face/remove your make-up twice a day. Remember: cleansing is the first and most important step of every routine.
3. Drink more water
Easy as a glass water 🙂 It doesn’t take a big effort and in the long-term makes a whole difference to your body and face skin. At least you’ll not be dehydrated, a condition that often affects our skin and I promise you will feel better, less tired and your body skin will glow.
4. Stop all the foam and super matte products
I don’t have much to say about it. They just aren’t good for your skin, even if this it oily. Trust me, I have been there too and even if they promise to do it, infact they only make your skin feel dried out for a couple of hours and then it goes back to the usual greasyness.
5. Declutter your skincare routine and leave it time to work.
Most products take weeks, if not months, to give results and that’s why I never review products I have only used for little time. It’s very important, if you are starting to experiement with skincare, that you only select a few products and stick to them for some time to really see if they work or not and how your skin reacts.
6. Extra tip
If you have an important concern with your skin, try to go to a dermatologist. I’m talking about skin issues like acne/rosacea/dermatitis. He’s the one who can give the best and most effective advice. This can be very expensive, but consider all the money you are otherwise wasting in wrong products. A doctor, if you a have a specific problem that has to be cured, is the only one who can help you save it.
Let me know if you have any other effective tips!
Have a lovely day!
