Skincare Routine for a smooth Skin
Just like babies, our bodies need special care – especially the face. The face is part of the body that is so exposed to many unconducive conditions, such as solar radiation, polluted air and touching with hands that are not clean.
The face has the most oil glands and if the pores get clogged, they result in breakouts. Other causes of breakouts and acne include hormonal fluctuations, genetics and allergies.
You may require to consult with a dermatologist to examine the cause of your acne. However, below I have written down several skin care tips to check to prevent acne and give you a smooth face.
Wash your face twice a day
By the time the day ends you get home pretty tired and probably the only thing you want to do is eat and sleep. Well, I need to remind you that your face is wasted too from the makeup you use, and dirt.
Your skin needs to relax and rejuvenate. Before you retire to bed use your two minutes for a bedtime skin wash routine to get rid of the dirt and accumulated oil. This will leave your skin pores clear and breathing.
Apply some moisturizer to hydrate the skin while sleeping. Repeat the same routine in the morning before starting your day.
Moisturize your face
Your face needs not be thirsty. Even if you have an oily skin, look for the recommended moisturizer to keep your face hydrated and smooth. Leaving your face dry may cause more breakouts or make your skin oilier.
Choose your products wisely
Face products include cleansing products, toiletries and makeup. While purchasing any of these products, choose products that will not clog your pores with oil.
Go for products with the label “nonacnegenic” or noncomedogenic which means that the product is oil-free. Skincare products with this label are lighter and do not clog the pores. Also, remember to clean your brushes to avoid bacteria and germs that may form over time and get to your face.
Change your pillowcase regularly
A dirty pillowcase/pillow can cause breakouts. Cover your hair while sleeping to avoid the hair products from transferring to your face through the pillow.
After shampooing your hair make sure you wash the product off your face. Also, while applying the hair products, shield your face because these products contain oils that can clog the pores and contribute to breakouts.
Be gentle with your sweet face
While cleaning your face use the right products. Avoid harsh products such as the soap you use on your clothes, hah! Use a soft piece of cloth to gently scrub your skin. Use sunscreen to protect the face from the harsh UV rays. Use a generous amount while in the sun.
Stop touching your face and popping the pimples
Throughout the day you are in constant contact with bacteria and germs through the places and things you touch. Then later in the day you rest your chin on your unwashed hands while reading a novel. This way, you transfer all the germs to your face.
In addition, popping the pimples will not only transfer bacteria from your hand, but also risk infecting other areas of the face.
