Skincare is the most important thing you can do for yourself. It takes years to build up healthy skin, so taking care of it is vital. Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to take better care of their skin and face. So, before you decide to explore botox or fat transfer to the face, you can try taking better care of your skin overall and see the results.
Here are some tips to improve your appearance and make your skin glow.
1. Exfoliate with a Scrub Once a Week
Exfoliating is essential if you want to keep your skin clean and healthy. It can be done with a scrub or a loofah. You should exfoliate at least once a week, and if your skin is used to the process, most experts suggest exfoliating the skin two-three times a week.
Be cautious if you have dry or sensitive skin. Harsh cosmetics can irritate the skin, causing it to become even more dry or sensitive. Only exfoliate once or twice a week for these skin types.
2. Cleanse Every Day, and Don’t Forget to Moisturize
The most important thing you can do to take care of your skin is cleanse it every day with a gentle cleanser and moisturize it in the morning and before bed each night. This will keep your skin clear and stay glowing.
3. Drink Plenty of Water
If you drink a lot of water, your skin will glow. So it’s essential to drink a lot of water to flush out toxins and maintain healthy cells.
According to a small study published in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology in 2015, increased water intake had a positive effect on skin appearance and helped maintain skin hydration levels in individuals with low daily water consumption — that is, those who were dehydrated, to begin with.
4. Eat Foods Rich in Antioxidants
Antioxidants help make your skin look and feel healthy. They help prevent free radicals from damaging your skin cells, resulting in more radiant and healthier-looking skin.
Eating foods rich in antioxidants can reduce the amount of time it takes for your skin to recover from sun exposure. Antioxidants also help with acne, psoriasis, and age spots.
Some great antioxidants are green tea, dark chocolate, fruit juices, strawberries, blueberries, red grapes, mangos, blackberries, pomegranates, and asparagus.
5. Wear Sunscreen Every Day
The sun is the number one cause of skin cancer, so it’s essential to protect yourself and others around you. Sunscreen is effective because it filters out both UVA and UVB rays and provides a physical barrier between your skin and the sun’s harmful rays.
Apply sunscreen with at least 30 SPF 15 minutes before going outside because sunscreen takes time to activate. Because hyperpigmentation is more challenging to correct, darker skin tones require greater sun protection.
6. Sleep Well Every Night (it makes up about half the beauty routine!)
Sleep is the first beauty secret. Good sleep helps you feel rejuvenated and refreshed, which can help your skin look better.
Our entire body, including our skin, rests while we sleep. As a result, our skin can’t adequately recover from any damage and inflammation if we don’t get enough sleep.
Stay hydrated; drink at least eight glasses of water a day. Dehydration can make you feel sluggish. It also makes your skin dry out, and more prominently, lines appear on the face.
Exfoliate at least once a week to remove dead cells from the pores and give yourself an extra boost of freshness.
Use all-natural products with no harsh chemicals or preservatives (avoid products with heavy fragrances).
