1. Double Cleansing
Cleansing the skin daily is an absolute must, especially if a woman is wearing makeup every day. Double Cleansing is just one additional step in your routine, to clean your face with a Cleansing Oil/ Ilana Serum before you use a soap based cleanser. The dirt and grime collected on the skin can cause breakouts, so make sure you do it as part of your daily routine.
This is especially important before sleeping, as this is the time when skin needs to breathe properly. A proper cleanser is also of the utmost importance.
2. Drinking Smart
Coffee or tea is admittedly a lifesaver in the morning. However, this habit has a very negative effect on your skin.
Women with healthy skin are careful to drink the right liquids. This hydrates the skin while also refreshing and brightening it. This habit also serves to soothe puffiness and generally smoothen out the skin.
Another popular skin enhancer is any vegetable leftover juice. This is made by throwing some veggies in a blender, probably the ones you used for cooking with some water to help the liquefying process. An apple in the mixture wouldn’t hurt either.
In general, keeping hydrated is essential to maintaining good skin. Keep a water bottle with you at all times and sip it throughout the day. It flushes out the toxins in your system and brightens up that face!
3. Taking In The Proper Nutrients
Retaining the right amount of moisture is important when trying to achieve lovely skin. For this, one needs to have a proper intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, our bodies cannot produce this chemical on its own. Hence we have to turn to flax seeds and walnuts for this essential ingredient.
At the same time, it is also important to keep away from starchy foods like White flour, white rice, and sugary processed foods are a no-no when it comes to your skin.
After the cleansing part is done, moisturising comes next. This should be on the everyday list of things to do. Without the proper moisturisation, our skin could quickly lose moisture, develop wrinkles, or have overly active oil glands.
It is best to moisturise right after you shower or wash your face. However, you should be careful not to dry your face with a towel or paper napkin before you put on moisturiser. Leave it to air dry a little and then apply a gentle and moisturising lotion or cream. This helps the moisture to remain inside the skin. Moisturising before bed is also a great way to wake up with glowing skin.
5. No Touching The Face
When we have breakouts, blackheads, or dryness, it can be tempting to poke at our faces. Popping pimples and scratching of acne scars are two dangerous habits that could flaw your skin for life. Hence, keep those fingers and hands away from the face!
Touching your face too much can cause even more breakouts. This is exactly why renowned dermatologists severely advise against hands touching the face, no matter how clean you think they are.
