The Dos and Don’ts of Glowing Skin
There’s so much info on skin care right now that it could be downright confusing. So we’ve curated a bunch of dos and don’ts recommended by beauty experts to help you take care of your skin and keep it glowing.
👍 Hydrate. Since your skin is the largest organ, it’s the last to receive nourishment from water. So you have to drink even more water than normal when you’re under stress or during summer.
👍 Moisturize. Moisturizing prevents skin problems. Use an overnight moisturizer because skin cell regeneration happens faster overnight and gives you a fresh glow in the morning.
👍Exfoliate. You need to get rid of old, dead skin cells and make room for cell regeneration. Use an exfoliating scrub gently once or twice a week for glowing skin.
👍 Facials. It’s best to have skin handled by an expert. For first timers, start with a basic facial. Or choose one that directly targets your skin concerns like anti-aging, acne or brightening.
👍Eat Healthy. Eat veggies. If you can’t, then try juicing them.They are full of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants that increase blood flow and improves cell regeneration for healthy skin.
👎 Over do it. Find a beauty routine that works for you and stick to it. Don’t experiment with too many serums or products. Sticking to maybe 2-3 will keep your skin balanced and happy.
👎Trust Pinterest. There are some DIY skin care suggestions which could work for others but not for you. Be careful when using lemons, hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, spices and egg whites.
👎Drink too much coffee. Coffee dehydrates skin. And since our skin needs all the water and hydration it can get, stay away from coffee. More than one cup can wreak havoc on your skin.
👎Over exfoliate. Once or twice a week will keep skin healthy and glowing but doing it more often may damage sensitive skin and make it prone to irritation.
👎 Touch your face. Touching it transfers bacteria from your hands to your face which makes blemishes worse. Also, never pop or pick at a pimple. It could cause scarring or an infection.
One more thing you can also do is to apply face masks regularly. Especially those whose ingredients are known to benefit skin and do wonders for it.
