Are you battling acne, dry skin, and imperfections the moment you wake up to the second you hit the pillow? If so, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans struggle with acne and other skin blemishes. We know how frustrating it can be, especially when you think you’ve tried every remedy out there.
Hopefully, today is your lucky day. Below, we provide five tips for a glowing complexion, so you can feel confident at your next business meeting or sexy the next time you’re out on the town. Take a look!
1. Create a routine
Humans are creatures of habit, and so is your skin. If you clean your face some nights of the week and forget the next, your face may become riddled with breakouts and blemishes. A consistent morning and bedtime skin care routine will keep your skin healthy and happy.
Think of your skin as a pair of pearly white sneakers. You open the box, lace them up, and flaunt them as you walk through the town. At the beginning of the day, you’ll feel unstoppable with your fresh new kicks. But as the day goes on and dirt, debris, and scuff marks accumulate, your sneakers won’t look like they once did.
The same happens with your skin. Dirt, debris, and makeup will clog your pores, and if you neglect to give your skin some TLC, it’ll begin to break out. To prevent this from happening, make sure you wash your skin morning and night, even if that means setting a reminder on your phone.
To brighten your skin and make it glow, make sure you exfoliate. Exfoliating will gently remove built-up residue and dead skin cells, leaving you with a smooth and clear complexion. There are two types of exfoliants: physical and chemical.
Physical exfoliants are things like face scrubs, while chemical exfoliants are things like face peels. Both do a great job at brightening and evening out your skin. However, it’s important you don’t exfoliate too much. Over exfoliating can damage your skin and cause redness, so aim to exfoliate three to four times a week.
Moisturizer combats both evils: overly dry and overly oily skin. How? Moisturizer traps moisture in your skin to keep it looking healthy and vibrant. The best time to moisturize is directly after showering or washing your face. Warm water opens your pores and replenishes your skin’s water content to keep it hydrated.
After you’re done showering or washing your face, use a plush face towel to pat your skin dry. Avoid rubbing as it can irritate your skin. Once dry, rub a toner on your face in circular motions. Using toner before moisturizer or anti-aging face serum will help these products penetrate deeper. CBD cream is another great option to keep your skin happy. You can even apply CBD skin care products over the entirety of your body, to keep every inch satisfied.
4. Stay hydrated
As you know, you can’t survive without water, and neither can your skin. Staying adequately hydrated throughout the day will increase the elasticity of your skin and will prevent it from forming wrinkles. Think of a plant when you forget to water it. After a few days, it’ll begin to sag and shrivel up. The same thing happens to your skin when you don’t hydrate properly. To ensure you’re drinking enough fluids, invest in a reusable water bottle that you can take on all of your daily errands and adventures.
5. Use sunscreen
There’s nothing better than the feeling of sun kissing your skin on a warm summer day. And while you may never want that feeling to end, your skin sure does. If your skin had a voice, it would be screaming, “Help, I’m being burned alive!” While the sun is essential for everything on Earth to live, the harmful UV rays it emits can cause damage to your precious skin, such as sunburn, blisters, and even cancer.
To prevent these serious health concerns, apply natural sunscreen to your skin about thirty minutes before you anticipate going outside. This will ensure the sunscreen settles and works to protect your skin. It’s also worth investing in a fashionable sun hat or a visor, umbrella, and sunglasses. There’s nothing wrong with extra protection.
If you’re struggling with acne, blemishes, and imperfections, don’t fret. Incorporating these skin care tips into your daily routine will help give your skin a glowing complexion that will make everyone wonder what your secret weapon is.
