Good Skincare Habits for Clear Healthy Glowing Skin
Good skincare practices assist us in achieving and maintaining healthy, bright, younger-looking skin. It is not enough to have an efficient skincare regimen; we must also include good habits to get healthy skin. And the earlier we begin, the better!
These are ideal habits to adopt in your twenties, but it is never too late. So let’s discuss a few of them below:
Wash your face twice a day: The most fundamental habit you must adopt is that of cleansing our faces every morning and night. Consider how much dirt, oil, dead skin, pollutants, germs, bacteria, and viruses (to name a few) collect on your face during the day. Consider allowing them to perch on your face while you sleep. Yikes!
This also implies that you should not sleep with make-up on, no matter how exhausted you are. This one bad habit is the root of all evil.
Look for a cleanser that suits your skin type.
Moisturize twice a day:
It is very essential to moisturize your skin twice a day, in the morning and at night. Yes, even if your skin is oily. Your skin needs moisturization so that it appears plump, youthful, and healthy.
The trick, once again, is to use the correct products for your skin type. There are several moisturizers available for both oily and dry skin, so choose wisely. Using the wrong product is nearly as harmful as not moisturizing.
Wear sunscreen 365 days a year:
Is it necessary to apply sunscreen in the winter? What about if it’s gloomy or raining? And the answer is, indeed, yes.
Even if you don’t see it or feel its warmth, the sun and its dangerous UV rays are still present.
You should even apply sunscreen while you’re at home and have no intentions to go because the windows let in a lot of natural light. Excellent for the house, but not so good for your skin.
Choose a non-greasy, water-based sunscreen for your daily use. And don’t forget to check the SPF because that is the only thing that matters.
Add Vitamin C to your routine:
Vitamin C is a potent anti-oxidant that significantly improves the appearance of our skin making it look brighter. It is also known to lighten dark spots and enhance the texture of our skin.
When used in the morning, it fits in nicely with our sunscreen to provide an additional layer of UV protection. As a result, it’s a product that you should incorporate into your daily skincare routine.
Eat or apply the choice is yours.
Start using Retinol
Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative that has several advantages such as increasing collagen production, reversing signs of aging and sun damage, enhancing skin texture, and much more!
Retinol can be used as early as in your twenties. But it’s better late than never!
If you’re new to retinol, take it slowly and gently at first.
Exfoliating regularly is another wonderful skincare habit to adopt.
A short Google search reveals that we shed 40,000 dead skin cells per minute of every day! While the majority of them will simply flake off and disappear, a significant number will remain, leaving skin appearing drab.
Exfoliation is for this purpose only.
Scrubs and chemical exfoliants are two typical methods. You can always try and test whichever works best for you.
The key to a good skincare regime is consistency.
Skincare and healthy skin, like anything else, need time. So don’t expect to see results right away. Do not believe in products that promise miraculous outcomes since they do not exist.
To see any significant results, you must stick to your regimen for at least a month.
This includes maintaining healthy skincare routines even whether you are fatigued, inebriated, running late in the morning, or extremely drowsy in the evening.
Keep at these good habits and you should see a brighter, healthier you in no time.
