Cleanse your skin

Tips to prep your skin

The first and the most important step in your skincare routine is cleansing your skin. Cleaning your face is essential because it removes all the waste stored in pores on your face. It removes debris such as oil, sebum, and dust particles which can cause dullness. If you want brighter skin, wash your face with a cleanser every morning and night massaging your face in a circular motion with your fingertips. You can choose water-based or cream-based cleansers depending upon the skin type.

Exfoliate your skin

Exfoliating your skin is the most effective way to get brighter and glowing skin. Exfoliation helps to get rid of the dead skin cells that make your skin appear dull and dirty. People with sensitive skin should regularly exfoliate at least once a week and other skin types should do it 2-3 times a week. A mild scrub is generally recommended to avoid peeling healthy skin. A pro tip. While exfoliating, don’t go too harsh on your skin as it may put unnecessary stress on it.

Hydration is the key

Drinking plenty of water flushes harmful bacteria and toxins from the body. It cleanses the body from the inside out, promoting flawless glowing skin. For dry and sensitive skin, look for components containing glycerin as the main ingredient. On average, one should drink, at least, 4 liters of water every day.

Pampering with sheet masks

Moisturize your skin regularly

One should make moisturizing their skin a daily habit and not do it only when the skin feels dry and chapped. Even if you have oily to very oily skin, there’s no excuse for skipping moisturizer. Take help from gel-based moisturizers. Moisturizing twice a day gives your skin the proper nourishment it needs.
