Hi beauty loves!
The Sunday night blues is already hitting us while we get ourselves prepared for the new week ahead. What are some nightly rituals you do before a work day? Anyway, we'll get right into it and share a few tips you can do to make your skin look (and feel) better.
1) Cleanser, toner and moisturizer (or serum)
This 3 step process is essential to anyone's skin care routine. It's important to cleanse your face to remove any makeup or dirt collected throughout the day before going to bed every night. Following a toner to remove impurities and a good moisturizer (or serum) to seal it all in.
If you've got 'problematic' skin or if you'd like to take it a step further, there are additional steps you can include! Such as exfoliation, face masks, or using a face scrub.
2) Staying hydrated
Having a skincare routine is an add-on to the foundation of having clear skin. Food you are ingesting can cause acne as well especially eating deep fried foods. I'm sure many of you have heard that drinking lots of water and eating vegetables will help keep your skin young!
This also means that if you come out of the shower with your skin feeling tight / dry, moisturize right away!
3) Don't pop your pimples
I think everyone has been guilty of this! If you've got pimples, acne or dry skin try your best not to pick at it. (I know it's pretty difficult to just leave it). But honestly, letting it heal (with the right creams) can help the process and there's less scarring involved.
4) Change your pillow case
This might seem like a random tip - but it's true! If you sleep on your pillow with 'dirty' hair (meaning you didn't wash it right before you sleep), the particles can stay on your pillow. If you have sensitive skin, this could cause breakouts as the dirt from your hair gets transferred on your pillow case to your face.
5) Face masks
Try to schedule sometime in - once a week for a face mask. They're packed with great active ingredients to help give your skin a boost. Instant refresher!
Depending on the condition of your skin, some people prefer to go for facials once a month to do a deep cleanse of their face. This can help to remove dirt, blackheads, clogged pores and more depending on the type of treatment.
What are your skin care tips? Anyways... wine time.
