Some Do's and Dont's Tips on Skin Care

Our skin is the most obvious part of our body and we owe it to ourselves to take great care of it especially the skin on our face, and this involves keeping it glowing and smooth. Here are a few tips focusing on the face that can help achieve this goal:
  • DO: Wash your face daily with a gentle cleanser. It's imperative to wash at night to remove the day's sweat and oil and also make up. 
  • DON'T: Go to bed with your makeup on....It can clog your pores and lead to breakouts. You also want to use a good eye-makeup remover at night to ensure proper removal. 
  • DO: A good exfoliator twice a week would do you good. The skin regenerates rather quickly, and you want to reveal your best skin by removing dead skin cells. 
  • DON'T: Exfoliate during your menstrual cycle. Your hormones are off the hook during this time, and exfoliating might irritate the skin (sometimes enough to make you break out).
  • DO: Keep your lips moisturized night AND day. Again, nighttime is a great opportunity to slather on the balm.
  • DO: Start taking special care of your skin in your twenties. It pays to start early!
  • DON'T: Believe that you don't need expensive products to achieve great skin. Remember there is a product for everyone and for every budget. Just be gentle with your skin, and it will love you back for years to come.
