Top skin care tips

Have you noticed that your skin simply isn’t looking as great as it could? Maybe you keep breaking out, you’re noticing fine lines and wrinkles, or your skin looks dull and dry.

Luckily, we’ve got some of the top skin care tips for you, so you can overhaul your skin and start looking your best.

Always remove your makeup

We know, you’ve heard it all before, so why are you still going to bed with your face on? No matter how tired you are, it’s crucial that you take the time to remove your makeup if you’re hoping to have great skin. If you’re not removing your makeup, instead of having glowing skin, your skin will have clogged pores and will look dull. When you’re sleeping, makeup is pushed even deeper into those pores, which can lead to acne. If you don’t have time to grab a cleanser and lather up, at least use a cleansing wipe, or grab some cleansing water which will wipe away your makeup without any rinsing.


Drink more water

Drinking water shouldn’t be reserved for when you’re hungover or hitting the gym. Instead, you should be sipping on water all day, aiming for at least eight glasses a day. This will make it less likely that your skin will go all flakey and dry, and it will instead look hydrated and plump.

Stop touching your skin

It’s so tempting to pick at that pimple, but you’re likely to be driving bacteria even further into your skin, which will make it more inflamed and bigger. Many people tend to pick their skin when they’re stressed out or bored, which will cause scarring and increase breakouts as you spread bacteria around. If you tend to pick while you’re at home, try putting a face mask on, as your fingers will continually encounter the mask and you’ll be less likely to pick.

Be gentle

We’ve all been there- you grab an exfoliator and rub it into your skin, thinking you’re doing a great job for it. But you may actually be damaging your skin instead of caring for it. Check out Osmosis skin care, which is full of gentle ingredients and will help clean your skin without tearing it.

Get more sleep

If you’re not getting enough sleep, you’re probably drinking too much caffeine in order to stay awake during the day. This can make you more dehydrated, and you’ll notice that you get bags under your eyes and your skin looks dull and tired. The best bet is to move your devices away from your bed at least an hour before you go to sleep. You need at least eight hours to get enough sleep, although many people need more than this since they’re chronically tired. When you get enough hours of deep sleep, your skin will have more time to repair itself and you’ll notice that it has a nice youthful glow.
