Who doesn’t want to have beautiful skin? When you have a glowing complexion, you don’t even need to wear a lot of makeup, as your imperfections and blemishes are non-existent. Truth be told, we’re not all blessed with flawless skin, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t get it. There are plenty of tips and tricks on skin care which will help you get complexion you’ve always dreamed of.
1. The Golden Rule
Do: Make sure you always remove your makeup before going to sleep. The skin needs to breathe overnight. And makeup prevents that, as leaving it on overnight clogs the pores which may cause blemishes and/or blackheads. Don’t possess a makeup remover? Just put some olive oil on a cotton pad and gently massage the oil onto your face to get rid of the makeup and dirt.
Don’t: Forget that exfoliation is indispensable. At least once or twice a week, exfoliate your skin to remove the layers of dead skin, sure to leave you with a more healthy glow and brighter skin. You can also apply a paste of walnut in powder form with yogurt to exfoliate your skin, as the antioxidants present in walnuts help remove dirt and promote radiant skin.
2. Sun and Skin
Do: Do apply sunscreen before going out in Sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems, you have to protect your skin from the sun. Make sure the label reads ‘noncomedogenic’ or ‘nonacnegenic’ so that the product does not tend to block pores.
Don’t: Skip the sunscreen, whether it’s cloudy or cold outside. If you’re heading to a beach or around reflective surfaces like snow or ice, lather your skin up with some more sunscreen.
