8 Tips To Include In Your Skincare Regimen


Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? Unfortunately, it is also one that doesn’t get the best care. Your skin protects your body against infections, so it is very important to give it the much needed TLC it deserves. Read further to see some simple ways you can improve your overall skin care regimen and get glowing, healthier skin.


1. Know Your Skin Type

If someone says a particular product is excellent in treating acne, don’t blindly buy it. Before you look for treatment options, you must understand your skin type (dry, oily, combination, or normal). Once you know your skin type, you’ll know how you get these skin problems and what you need to treat them. You will also know which product will suit your skin type as today all toiletries and cosmetic products mention the skin type on the cover.

If you have severe skin issues, it is better to visit a dermatologist to treat it. Delaying treatment can worsen your condition.

2. Maintain A Skincare Routine
You would’ve heard it many times, but cleaning, toning, exfoliating, and moisturizing is essential for your skin. Since your facial skin is much more sensitive than the rest of your body, you’ll need to follow this routine daily for promoting healthier skin. If you haven’t started it yet, it’s not too late. Try using a natural facial mask every week or fortnight for better results.

3. Watch What You Eat
What you eat reflects on your skin. To maintain younger looking skin, include healthier foods like fruits, vegetables, lean meat, and low-fat dairy in your diet. If you’re a fast food junkie, it’s time to switch to healthier alternatives. Replace your burgers and pizzas with whole wheat vegetable sandwiches, sugary treats with dry fruits, and deli meats with freshly cooked meats.

4. Get Enough Sleep
When you sleep, your body starts working towards removing excess water and maintaining your body's water balance. If you don't sleep well, it shows on your face. You can have dark circles, puffy eyes, and your skin problems can actually increase. Sleep for at least 7 to 8 hours every day. If you have a habit of taking siestas, limit your power naps to 20 minutes.

5. Hydrate
Water helps in flushing out the toxins from your body. Unfortunately, most of us are too busy that we forget to hydrate. Most people work in centralized air-conditioned rooms and don’t sweat easily, making them forget to drink water. No matter how busy you are, make it a point to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Increase your intake during summers or if you’re into physical activities.

6. Check The Ingredients Before You Buy Skin Care Products
You need to be very careful whenever you buy any cosmetic or beauty products. Always read the ingredients given on the box to know what you’ll be using for your skin. If the product doesn’t have a list or an incomplete list, don’t buy it. Parabens, SLS, triclosan, petroleum distillates are a few notorious ingredients that can harm your skin.

There are many beauty blogs you can follow to get reviews of all sorts of products. This will give you an idea of what you need to buy even before you head to the store.

7. Remove Your Makeup Before You Go To Sleep
Makeup helps us define our facial features and hide our imperfections. Wearing makeup whenever you head out is okay as long as you use skin-friendly products and remove your makeup at night. Use a proper makeup remover, cleanser, and face wash to clear your skin. Give more attention to your eye area as removing falsies, mascara, and eyeliner can be the most difficult. Also, you can give your skin a break by not wearing makeup very frequently.

8. Don’t Forget Your Body
While you’re doing your bit to take care of your facial skin, don’t neglect your body. Wear sunscreen whenever you go out to protect your skin from harmful sun rays. Exfoliate your body with natural scrubs every week in order to promote healthier skin. Choose your body wash wisely as some ingredients can take away the body oils your body needs. Don’t forget to lock your skin with a good moisturizer immediately after a bath.
