We all want healthy, glowing skin, but honestly, skincare products are an investment that requires a total commitment for our regimen to work in our favor. However, skincare products cannot do much if we do things such as sleeping in full-face makeup, picking pimples on our faces, etc. The key to achieving healthy skin goes beyond our skincare products.
Here are simple ways to take care of your skin that will effectively aid in improving your skin’s health in addition to your daily skincare routine:-
Changing Your Sheets Every Two Days
Your sheets gather a lot of dirt such as sweat, residue from hair and skin products, dead skin cells, bacteria, etc., which can cause your face and body to break out. If you cannot change them after every two days, consider swapping out your pillowcases as they carry the most amount of this dirt.
No Picking And No Touching Your Face Pimple
Do you have a pimple? Do. Not. Ever. Touch. It. Continuously touching your face or a pimple throughout the day can result in dirt and bacteria build-up. Furthermore, picking at your pimple can result in tissue damage and scarring.
Showering With Lukewarm Water (Not Hot)
Hot showers, especially after a long, hectic day, can feel amazing. However, they strip off your natural skin moisture. Lukewarm water is recommended to help retain moisture on your skin. Additionally, avoid using harsh soaps or body wash that can make you prone to skin irritation or breakouts.
Limiting Your Time in the Sun
Although SPF does a fundamentally essential job of protecting us from the UV rays, the best way to avoid sunburns and wrinkly skin is to limit our sun-time. For example, don’t have your work or study desk near a window, etc.
Getting More Beauty Sleep
Research has shown that lack of sleep can lead to dehydrated skin, puffy eyes, and dark under-eye circles. Skin experts also say that sleep deprivation can cause your skin to be prone to eczema, acne, or psoriasis outbreaks. Try to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep to improve your metabolism and the health of your skin.
