I’m a skincare junkie and I’ve been obsessed with my skin for as long as I can remember. I have dealt with acne and hyperpigmentation since I was a teen and I try to do what I can to keep my skin healthy and glowing. Whether you struggled with acne in your teens or constantly battling with dry skin now, the truth is everyone has a skin care story because everyone struggles with less than perfect skin. The key to keeping your skin healthy and glowing is having good skincare. Here are five tips to help you get started.
1. Wash Your Face at night– People skip this step all the time and it’s not good for your skin especially if you wear makeup. Before I head to bed, I always use a cleansing oil at night to remove my makeup.
2. Eat a healthy diet– What you put on the inside will show on the outside. That’s what my mom constantly preaches to me and it’s true. Consuming healthy foods like fruits and vegetables can help promote glowing skin.
3. Manage Stress– If you want healthy skin, you gotta have a healthy state of mind. When I’m starting to feel stressed out from work, I find ways to manage it like taking a yoga class or a relaxing hot bath.
4. Protect yourself from the sun– Sun protection is a must no matter the season. After washing my face, I always use a moisturizer that contains sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15.
5. Go makeup-free– In the past, I would normally wear makeup on a daily basis and less makeup during the warmer months. Lately, I stopped wearing it everyday because it does take a toll on your skin. So, I let it breathe once in a while.
Lets go makeup-free together? I’ve partnered with Galderma to encourage people to take on the “Break Up with Your Makeup” challenge.
