7 steps to a healthy complexion.

You How to maintain a healthy complexion and look glowing.



1) Get into a routine of cleansing
the face, twice a day with your optimal product, it will fight many of the most common skin problems and leave your face feeling healthy and looking great. Deciding which to use really depends on your skin type and acne severity. More sensitive skin you may need a gentler product wherelse less sensitive skin may require a harsher product to see results 

2) Take care of facial hair, like our eyebrow lines neat, upper lip hair and chin hair groomed. To trim eyebrows, meet with a professional who can wax or pluck your eyebrows. They really do the best job, and will make sure that you don't take too much off, as this can lead to problems in the future. If you want to do it yourself, take a washcloth soaked in hot water and press it onto the area where you are about to remove the hair. Then remove the few stray hairs with tweezers. Do this every night before bed for best results.

3) *Make sure to drink lots of water. Your body needs plenty of hydration during the day to keep removing wastes and oils your face. You probably need to drink eight glasses of water a day or to know how many litres of water, you should be drinking each day? The formula is to take your body weight in kg and multiply that number by 33, (example your weight is 50kg x 33= 1650 litres.)

4) Exfoliate. If dead skin cells are just hanging out on your face, they're not reflecting light. It's important to slough off these dead skin cells in order to get rid of any dullness. While physical exfoliants are fine, try a chemical one like a glycolic acid wash or peel. An exfoliating wash should be used two or three times a week to brighten skin, just make sure to not overdo it lest your skin be left irritated and red. Once a week should be plenty.

5) Don't touch your face. Many people have bad habits of messing with acne or leaning their face on their hands. Your hands have oils on them that will clog pores, increasing blemishes. Dont pop pimples or interfere with anything facial, though it may seem like it will make it better, it actually makes it much worse and instead of dealing with one or two days pimple you now have a two week long project. Another tips you need to take note is changing your pillowcase often as the oils linger on the fabric, getting on your face during the night.

6) Take care of your lips. Use a lip hydrator often and make sure to moisturize your lips. A simple way to do this is to rub a sugar-and-water solution on them and then moisturize, as the sugar removes dead cells and rejuvenates the lips. Keep a stick of lip moisturizer on you at all times and use throughout the day. Be careful not to use too much Chapstick though. Your lips can literally get addicted to the chemicals that prevent/heal chapped lips; they will stop making that chemical themselves.

7) Protect your face from the sun by using sunblock every day. Ultraviolet rays will damage your skin over time and it's essential that you protect your face from harmful radiation. Use a good sunscreen or makeup with sunscreen in it, even a little, before going out. Another way to protect yourself is to wear clothing that will cover you, like a hat.
