Are you making plans for a perfect skin. Start a skincare routine into high gear with these blemish-removing and pimple-preventing tips to get flawless skin in no time.
1. Endeavour to always wash your face before going to bed. Not washing away the day’s dirt? It could result to a breakout. Place cleansing wipes on your nightstand for times when you’re too tired to move around.
2. Try to wash your face for at least 30 to 45 seconds with a dime-size amount of cleanser. It could take that long to clear dirt and oil off your face. And there’s actually a chance that you are washing your face all wrong.
3. Leftover cleanser alsomeans leftover dirt and oil. Rinse your face with tepid water until your skin feels clean and smooth and no longer slippery or soapy. Hot water makes your skin dry while cold water won’t open up your pores.
4. Scrub gently. Scrubbing too hard leaves your skin rough and red. Don’t rough handle your face. Skip harsh scrubs and even washcloths, which could be too rough on your face and can cause skin irritation. You could use your hands instead. Be sure they are clean, or you might transfer acne-causing dirt and oil right back.
5. Rub your cleanser in your hands first. It helps activate the ingredients, so they are more active when applied to your face.
6. Never skip your morning wash. Hairstyling particles get absorbed by your pillowcase then transfer them to your skin. If it’s not cleared away in the morning, it’ll clog up your pores. For your morning wash, try something brightening that’ll help your skin feel alive. Also, if you had a hard time getting up in the morning, a cool face wash can help you look alive.
7. Try using a cleansing brush. Sometimes even after you wash off, there’s still makeup left on your skin, and that buildup could lead to breakouts. Using an exfoliating brush with your basic cleanser helps loosen and remove the leftover makeup that has escaped inside your pores. The brush can get deeper into your skin than your fingers.
8. Don’t overwash your face. If your skin still feels oily, instead of washing again (which can make your skin even produce more oil), you could try applying an astringent after cleansing.
9. You can also try exfoliating. The trick is to remove the layers of the dead skin cells and dirt that are blocking your pores and preventinh your skin’s natural glow. You can apply products with alpha hydroxy and lactic acids exfoliate gently to make you look radiant.
10. First, wash then exfoliate. When washing, use a mild face wash to clean your skin. Then, lightly massage the exfoliator agent onto your face. This may look redundant, but before you exfoliate, you want a clean canvas, so that the exfoliant can focus on digging out the stubborn dirt and oil that are stuck deeper inside your pores.
11. You need to clean your phone too once in a while. If you notice pimples on your cheeks or anywhere near the area where you hold your phone, they might be from those hour-long conversation with your crush. Your device picks up lots of dirt and bacteria from your hands, your bag, the kitchen counter, which can then be transferred to your face when you’re chatting on the phone. Wipe your phone’s screen with an anti-bacterial wipe often to get rid of dirt and germs.
12. Change your pillowcase! Not changing your pillowcases can also cause your skin to break out. Even if you wash your face all night, your pillowcases still carry dirt and sweat from your hair, hands, and build up from the products you use on your face at night, which can cover your pores, so it’s a good idea to change them often.
