No matter, what we do, we all want flawless and smooth skin including men. We go to different lengths and breadths to take care of our skin. From buying expensive skincare products to making DIY solutions, we do it all to get glowing and younger-looking skin.
The market is filled with an endless number of skincare products. But most of them are loaded with chemicals that do more bad than good to our skin. If you want to get flawless skin, you can get it at home. To know-how, you should give this article a read.
Here are some effective skin care tips that you can follow at home:
- Use virgin coconut oil
Coconut oil is considered to be very good for our skin. That’s because it is loaded with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and healing properties. But this remedy is not suitable for every skin type, especially you have oily skin. You should not use coconut oil if you are allergic to coconut.
You can use coconut oil to:
- Remove your makeup
- Promote healthy-looking skin
- Soothe your skin barrier
Research shows that coconut oil acts as a good moisturizer. All you need to do is take a bit of coconut oil and massage it on your face. Allow it to soak in for a few minutes and then wash it off using a cleanser.
- Moisturise your face after washing
Due to your busy schedule, many of you skip this important step. Moisturizing your skin is very important as it promotes healing, and lock in moisture. You should use moisturisers with antioxidant properties that will give you a glowing and youthful look.
You should avoid exfoliating your skin when it feels too dry. Also, you should not skip moisturiser after washing your face. Moisturiser is needed for all skin types including people with oily skin.
Wet your skin before applying moisturizer. This will lock in extra moisture and thus, make your face feel smoother.
- Wear sunscreen daily
If you are a working woman, sunscreen should be your best buddy. What we mean is that you shouldn’t step out of your house without applying sunscreen. Exposing your skin directly to sun rays can lead to sunburns and tanning. Not just that, but it also increases the risk of skin cancer.
This is why you are recommended to use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or above. This will help keep your skin protected from harmful UV rays. Not just that, but it also guards against photoaging.
Make sure you apply enough sunscreen every morning. You should apply it 15 minutes before leaving your house. You shouldn’t skip sunscreen even on cloudy or rainy days.
Keeping your skin protected and maintaining it is your responsibility. If you think that applying dozens of artificial skin care products is all you need to do, you are wrong. It takes more than that to get glowing and flawless skin. These are only a few of the tips to achieve that.
