1. Skin care involves the whole body
Most people will spend lots of their time taking care of their faces. It’s time to start giving attention to your neck, the back of your hands and overall body. Use moisturizer on your body after you shower. It’s also advisable to use sunscreen on your hands, legs as you go out for your usual day to day activities.
2. Use heat protection product on your hair
Blow-drying your hair and using hot tools to style your hair may have damaging effects at the end. Use your preferred heat protection product to protect your hair from damage.
3. Use foundation
Don’t fear to use foundation everyday as your beauty regime. Learn how to choose the right foundation for your skin type. Get the know-how to apply foundation with different sponges available at the beauty stores.
4. Remove all the makeup before bedtime
Never sleep in your makeup is a rule of the thumb for anyone using makeup. You don’t want to end up later with pimples, wrinkles, and tired eyes. Wash the makeup off and apply the night moisturizer for that deep effect as you rest during your sleep.
5. Eat fish, fruits, and vegetables
A diet full of fish is great. Fish are a known source of omega and provide the skin with omega acids. Add vegetables and fruits since they provide antioxidants for a healthy glow.
6. Get enough sleep
Your skin recovers from your busy day to day activities when you sleep. Inadequate sleep leads to stress which causes breakouts and also make you look dull.
7. Treat yourself
It’s OK to visit the spa once in a while. Whether it’s a pedicure, facial or massage, don’t feel guilty pampering yourself. Taking time off to the spa provides stress relief and relaxation needed for your mental and emotional well-being.
8. Use the right products
You may end up with breakout from time to time. Sweating helps lower the body temperatures which is a good thing. The downside to this is it can irritate your skin leading to breakouts. Be sure to select the right cleanser with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid as an ingredient.
9. Exercise regularly
Exercise helps increase blood flow and hence giving you a healthy glow. Sweating will also flush out toxins and remove dead cells. New cells produced will help slow the aging process.
10. Hydrate with coconut water
Your body needs water to keep it going. You need water to clear your body off the toxins, for digestion, and to regulate the body temperature. You can take coconut water as an alternative to your glass of water.
11. Give your lips some love
Apply hydrating balms and SPF regularly on your lips. Protect your lips from environmental elements since they lack natural protection found on the other parts of your body. You can also use honey to take care of dry and cracked lips.
12. Add protein to your diet
Include meat, eggs, fish, lentils, beans, and soy in your diet. These are great source of protein which plays a vital role in elastin and collagen production. These two give you a perfect complexion.
13. Use water to dry your nails faster
If you need your nails to dry faster and you don’t have the quick dry products, you can dip them in a bowl of ice cold water. This will amazingly speed up the drying process.
14. Care for your eyes
It’s advisable to start caring for your eyes as early as your 20s. The skin around your eyes is so thin and it’s usually the first part of your body to show aging. Take extra care around your eyes.
15. Give your feet attention
Rub your feet with some olive oil. Rinse them well and moisturize them for that smooth feel and look.
It helps to choose your products wisely depending on your skin type, undertone, and the desired look. Always test your product before using them on your whole body. Test on the inside of your wrist 24 hours before using a new product. Beauty is both inside and outside look. Take care of your body by exercising, eating the right diet, and also applying the right products. Feel and look beautiful!
