From homemade face masks to DIY body scrubs, there are simple things you can do right at home to improve the health of your skin. It only takes a few minutes, but it can make you look and feel years younger.
Always Remove Your Makeup
Taking off your makeup is just as important as brushing your teeth. If you don’t have the energy to use a cleaner, you can use a cleansing wipe. And coconut oil is one of the best ways to remove eye makeup. Simply dab a bit on your eye and wipe off with a cotton pad. If you don’t remove your makeup, you will clog your pores and be prone to breakouts and dry or oily skin, depending on your skin type.
Speaking of cleansing, let’s not forget the importance of exfoliating. You can make a homemade face scrub or you can purchase an exfoliant at your local beauty or drug store. You should exfoliate your skin at least once a week to get rid of dead skin cells and to rejuvenate it.
Moisturising your skin is just as important as cleansing and exfoliating. You should moisturise your skin no matter what type of skin you have. And it should be part of your daily routine, year-round.
You should maintain a proper diet full of essential vitamins and nutrients as well as fibre and omega fatty acids to maintain the health of your body as well as your skin. Also, it is important to stay hydrated. You should drink 8 to 10 eight ounce glasses of water a day. Green tea is also beneficial for you skin as it contains antioxidants, antibacterial properties and polyphenol.
Sleep is another important factor. You should get at least 8 hours of sleep a night for your health and the health of your skin, as well.
