Moisturize dried tissues and protect the lip area from exposure to wind, cold temperatures and ultraviolet rays with a simple touch up of a lip balm every time you feel your lips are running dry.
Skin-care/makeup products in the right order
Always start by applying thinner, watery textured products first and leave the thickest, creamiest products for the end. This helps the skin because heavy creams and oils help seal all the products that have been applied prior.
Dermatologists say that choosing the right beverage can actually turn out to be a game changer for your skin. Drink about half a liter of water every morning to brighten, oxygenate, and hydrate your skin. Drinking a glass of fresh green juices with lots of veggies every day for breakfast is another great way to transform your skin in a matter of days.
At the end of a long, tiring day, it can be super tempting to jump right into bed by just washing your face. But this is the perfect gateway for bad skin. It is important to thoroughly clean and remove every last bit of makeup from your face before you go to sleep. Failing to do so will clog your pores and give rise to bad zits and acne.
Exfoliate your skin
Apart from sloughing away dead skin cells, exfoliation thoroughly cleanses your pores from deep within. This will also ensure that makeup goes on smoothly without appearing cakey on the skin.
A double cleanse routine
Following this two-step process is easy. You need an oil-based cleanser, which should be then followed by a water-based one. An oil based cleanser removes all traces of makeup and dust, while a water-based one will remove stubborn grime that usually stays behind. The process of double cleansing not only leaves your face clean, but it also eliminates the possibilities of clogged pores as well as acne.
Using a sunscreen
Besides protecting your skin against the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun, a sunscreen is also the best anti-ageing tool you would ever use. It protects your skin against wrinkles, pigmentation, dark spots as well as skin cancer. We recommend you choose a non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic formula, by simply reading the labels on the bottle, to prevent skin breakouts.
Keep your hands off your face
Your hands come in contact with a lot of things throughout the day and end up collecting a lot of dirt, grime and germs. Each time you touch your face for anything, you really are leaving behind a lot of germs and creating a minefield of potential zits. We recommend you to wash and sanitize your hands a couple of times during the day.
Makeup setting sprays
Not only do they prolong your makeup staying power, setting sprays have been found to have skin cooling, hydrating, brightening and glow inducing benefits and effects. Just two-three sprays after applying makeup will do wonders and allow you to become less conscious about getting it all smudged.
A healthy diet
The effects and benefits of following all these tips would be incomplete if not paired with a healthy diet. To get good skin and hair, your diet should always be nutrition-rich. It should be an excellent mix of fruits, vegetables, nuts, cereals, and pulses. Increase the intake of raw or boiled food and include as many fruits and veggies in your meals as possible by choosing to have salads, smoothies, and juices. Not only will you feel more active and light, but you will have a great outlook on life.
