Everyone wants to have clear, flawless skin but not everybody is blessed with one. Some are worried about their acne breakouts while others are seeking ways to get rid of black heads and yet another group wants an instant cure for skin pigmentation. Are you also a victim of acne, blackheads, large pores, skin pigmentation, or any other skin condition that is shattering your confidence big time? Don’t worry, here are some tips that you can follow to get flawless skin naturally.
Determine your skin type:
First thing that you need to do is determine your skin type, since your skincare regimen will greatly depend on which type of skin you have. There are four types of skin, normal, oily, dry and combination skin. The former is the best of all, since it neither secretes oil nor does it turn flaky. It is always smooth and supple regardless of weather conditions. If you have normal skin, trust me you are lucky!
Oily skin, as is obvious from its name, is characterized by excessive oil secretion. People with oily skin are more prone to acne breakouts and enlarged pores. Dry skin, on the other hand, feels taut and is always flaky, especially during winters. Combination skin is the one that shows traits of all of the above mentioned skin types. It is oily in the T-area (forehead, nose and chin) and dry elsewhere.
Buy a cleanser, face wash and moisturizer suited to your skin type:
Once you have determined your skin type, walk into any good cosmetic store and buy a cleanser, face wash and a moisturizer that suits your skin type. All brands sell their products clearly mentioning on them which skin type do they suit. Young girls don’t need to buy facial scrubs but if you are 25 or above go for a good quality facial scrub as well.
Use your face wash every day:
Use your face wash every day but do not use any abrasive material such as washcloth or loofah to scrub your face. Simply scrub your face gently with your finger tips, focusing on nose, cheeks, chin and forehead area.
Cleanse your skin daily before you go to bed:
You need to cleanse your skin daily before you go to bed. This will help remove all the dirt and grime off your face. It will also unclog pores preventing acne breakouts and appearance of blackheads.
Use sunscreen lotion daily:
Ultraviolet rays of sun are the worst enemy of your skin. Always wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or above when going out during day time. Wear sunscreen even if it is cloudy outside. Avoid going out in sun during peak hours (10am to 4 pm).
What you eat appears on your face. To have a flawless skin eat healthy making sure you are consuming a balanced diet. Add fresh fruits and vegetables to your menu as much as you can. If you want to have a smooth and clear skin even in your 50s, eat 3 servings of fruits and 5 servings of vegetables daily.
Drink plenty of fluids:
Nutritionists recommend drinking 8 glasses of fluids every day. Water, green tea or herbal tea and fresh juices are best for your skin.
