Basic Skin Care

27 September 2016
I am not a dermatologist but I know how to take care of my skin. I don't get pimples except when my period is about to come. But that is tolerable as it's only one or two on the forehead. 

We all know that there are plenty of good ways to take care of our skin. You may have your own tricks too. Allow me to remind or share with you the following basic skin care.

Drink at least 2 liters of water a day. Our body uses up water in all our activities, if not replenish, our skin will show dryness or sometimes other skin problems like pimples. 

Eat healthy. Add more fruits, vegetables, lean meats and whole grains in your diet. These foods are rich in vitamins and minerals essential in keeping your skin glowing. 

Smoking cigarettes won't help. Stop is you are, don't dare if you're not. Smoking contributes in narrowing your tiny blood vessel leaving your skin dry. Not to mention the other diseases connecting to cigarette smoking.

Always protect your skin from the sun. Use products that can protect you against the harmful rays of the sun. Products with SPF 15 or more are recommended. If you are out swimming, bring with you your sun lotion and re-apply every two hours. 

Wearing make-up is okay. Just make sure you use the brand that you trust and brand that won't give you skin problem. Always try new product in small portion of your skin before thoroughly applying them. Also, you should keep your brushes and sponges clean and fresh all the time. Wash them regularly or replace them when possible. Dirt accumulated on your make-up applicators can also create skin problems. 

Wash you face at least twice a day. Use soap that is best for you. If you have sensitive skin, make sure to buy fragrance-free or soap-free products. The more scent, the more chance your skin gets irritated. Remove make-up before going to bed. Leaving them on you face will only make your skins clogged by make-up particles. 

Change your pillowcase regularly. Even when we are sleeping our skin produce oil which is left in the pillowcase. Plus, all the dirt from our hair will also sleep there. I'm sure you don't want them to get all that into your skin. Only worse could happen. Besides, it's always great to sleep on clean pillow and linens. 

Handle your stress well. Yes, stress can make your skin ugly. To avoid that, keep everything in order. Organize the things you need to do so you don't worry much of the things undone. Exercise daily as this is a very good tool to release your stress. Learn to unwind and take it easy. 

These are just few skin care tips that I can share with you. Remember, maintain good hygiene, eat and drink properly and exercise regularly to keep your skin healthy.
