5 Daily Skin Essentials

by

Skin care should be a part of everyone’s daily routine, no matter how pressed for time one gets. But taking care of skin does not mean that you have to spend a lot of time pampering it.

Instead, developing a routine that fits into your daily schedule need not take more than a few minutes. Here are a few basic practices that can help everyone take better care of their skin.

Cleansing

Cleansing is a must especially before bedtime, even if you do not wear makeup. It is best to cleanse and tone daily to remove traces of dirt and oil. Follow toning with moisturizing choosing a product that suits your skin type.

Hydration

Drink a lot of water. Water acts as a natural moisturizer for all skin types keeping it resilient and firm longer. With time our skin loses its ability to retain moisture which can be supplemented by drinking plenty of water and keeping it better moisturized.

Protection

Blocking the harmful effects of the sun is one of the most effective ways to protect skin from external damage. Extended sun exposure can lead to skin discoloration, wrinkles, freckles or age spots. Using sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days, can help minimize such sun damage.

Sleep

When we do not get a good night’s rest, the effects can start to show on the condition of our skin. Not enough sleep ages our body and skin, making us appear tired, feeling worn out and looking dull. Tired looking skin can be corrected by a restful shut eye.

Nutrition

Good nutrition is key to getting beautiful skin. A good diet, including a variety of healthy foods and avoiding sugary treats will help rejuvenate the look of your skin.

Excess sugar in the body can break down collagen in your skin making it appear dull and tired. Foods like extra virgin oil, fresh fruits and vegetables can help promote collagen production.
