Having a skincare routine is essential. You travel throughout your day going through pollutions and smoke of city life and all that is harmful to your skin. Being exposed to pollution is the first and foremost cause of acne and dull skin. So what’s the solution to that? Well, following a skincare routine will reduce the chances of having acne and make your skin glowy for the long term. A skincare routine involves cleansing, toning, and moisturizing for both men and women. Here is a perfect skincare routine for you to follow.
Washing Face A Part Of Skincare Routine
The very first step to a perfect skincare routine is washing your face. Before that, you need to know how to select a face wash that suits your skin. You cannot go with anything available in the market because of the harmful chemicals they have that can have a detrimental effect on your face. The very first thing to note while buying a face wash is to go for a mild face wash. A mild face wash is best for all skin types, be it oily skin or dry skin. Oily skin is more prone to acne rather than dry skin, so you must choose a good face wash.
Also, there are face washes with parabens and sulfate; you have to look out for them. Parabens and sulfates can damage your skin. What I suggest is to go for a natural face wash or probably the mild one as it will not harm your skin.
Wash your face twice a day once you wake up and second before going to bed. Also, make sure that you rinse your face with water at room temperature. Too cold or too warm water is not good for your face. After washing your face, pat dries it. Never rub your skin as it can cause skin irritation.
Exfoliating: Skincare Routine
Exfoliating your skin removes dead skin cells and dirt that clogs up the pores. It is essential to scrub your face to remove this dirt. Scrubbing once or twice a week is recommended and not more than that. If you feel that twice a week is too much for your skin and is causing skin irritation, then you should switch to once a week.
If you are having difficulty in finding exfoliating scrub that suits your skin, then you can try coffee or apple cider vinegar. These two are natural scrub, which has no side effects. Take some coffee and apply to your face and leave it for some and then wash it. Using apple cider vinegar is also quite easy. Take a cotton ball, and take 5 ml of vinegar and 5 ml water together. Apply the mix to your face twice a day before washing your face and then wash with a mild face wash.
Face pack helps rejuvenate your skin and clears out wrinkles by reversing the aging process. You can try some natural face pack of neem or Multani powder if your skin is prone to allergy or acne. To not make the case worse, you must go for a natural face pack.
Moisturizing is an essential part of face care. Buy a moisturizer that suits your skin. There are many types of moisturizers available in the market, such as moisturizer with sunscreen and moisturizer for glowy skin. The key to choosing the best skin product is trying out different products and deciding which suits your skin best. Moisturizing internally is as important as moisturizing externally. Moisturizers help moisturize your skin from outside. Drink water as per your weight. Water flushes out all the toxic substances out of your body while making your skin glow.
Lip is also a part of your face, and it is also essential to take care of them as well. Get a lip balm or lip moisturizer from the market and apply it to your lips. This will moisturize your lips and prevent it from getting dry.
Tips to follow to have a good skin
Here are some tips to follow to have good skin.
- Never pop a zit. Popping acne can worsen the case. Acne does not look good, but all you can do is wait for it to dry and heal by itself.
- Don’t touch your face. I used to be in the habit of touching my face again and again, but over time I stopped doing it. Touching your face, again and again, transfers the germs and first from your hands to face.
- Try cutting on sugar and junk food. Also, avoid chocolate. These foods make your skin prone to acne.
- Exercise properly.
- Get enough sleep. If you don’t get enough sleep daily, and this can make your skin look dull and ugly. Also, less sleep leads to stress and anxiety, which can cause wrinkles.
- You can try applying ice to your face if you have pimples that hurt. Pimples cause inflammation, and I know it hurts a lot, that you might even want to pop it up. Instead of popping it, you can try applying ice wrapped in a cloth. This will lessen the redness and inflammation and will give you relief.
If you want to improve your skin and make it acne free, then you should know that a skincare routine can work for a long time. Never expect that you will clear out all the pimples in a day. Instead, you should follow the routine with consistency to see the changes.
