As I mentioned in the post Here, having a skincare routine and being consistent with it, is really important if you want to have great skin. However, in addition to having a skincare routine and sticking to it, there are certain habits or practices that can transform your skin. Here are 5 tips to change your skincare game
Ditch bar soaps and use Facial cleansers instead
Soaps dry out and mess up with the pH of your skin. After washing/cleansing, the face should not feel squeakly clean or tight. That is a sign that the natural oils of the skin are being stripped off. Hence, cleansers made for the face, specifically for your skin type should be used.
Introduce More sheet masks/sleeping masks
Sleeping masks were made popular by the Korean Skincare routine. Koreans are known for incorporating various ways of adding moisture to the skin. Using sheet masks are a great additional step to adding more moisture to your face. Make sure to always follow up with a moisturizer.
Bonus Tip – Pop the sheet mask in the fridge for some minutes before applying. You feel more relaxed.
Sunscreen is very important as it protects your skin from UV rays from the sun. UV rays are very harmful to the skin and could worsen cases of hyperpigmentation and wrinkles or lead to skin cancer in the long run. Don’t forget to join the sunscreen challenge on Instagram #sunscreengoalsaf
