Tips to Take Care of Your Skin Effortlessly
Skincare routines and habits are tough to adhere to, especially extensive ones. A night out, a busy Monday or even a no-mood Sunday can bring our usual practises to a halt. If you’re having trouble sticking to a complicated self-care regimen, you should take a step back and consider the alternatives. Instead of pressuring yourself into having glowing skin, you can choose something easy too. After all, skincare should feel like a warm hug, not a hard hit on the head.
Here are a few ways to have an easy-breezy skincare routine at home:
- Layer It Up!
No, we’re not talking about jumpers or sweatshirts, it’s sunscreen! Protecting your skin from the sun will solve half your skin problems, because well, the sun is responsible for most of them. Invest in a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or above to keep dark spots, wrinkles, and other skin troubles away. Also, it’s important to reapply your sunscreen every 2 to 3 hours. Apart from this, it’s a good idea to avoid being under the sun in the peak hours unless it’s absolutely necessary.
- Avoid Strong Soaps
Be gentle. Instead of strong soaps, invest in natural body washes that leave your skin feeling hydrated, refreshed, and nourished. Strong soaps also leave your body feeling dry and scaly, which is the last thing anyone wants to feel after a relaxing shower, isn’t it?
- Pat Dry
Again, being gentle goes a long way towards keeping your skin healthy and bright. Rough towels strip your skin’s natural oils. So, pat yourself dry with a towel that’s smooth and gentle on your skin. Patting dry also helps retain your skin’s moisture.
- A Healthy Diet
Sticking to your daily water goal and eating clean is the best thing you can do for your skin. Apart from the visible benefits it has on your skin, a healthy diet also boosts your confidence and makes you feel your best.
- Moisturise, Unless It Happens Naturally.
Unless you’ve got naturally oily skin, it’s important to give your skin its daily dose of moisture. To achieve these two goals at once, consider buying a moisturiser with an SPF. Make sure to do your research and find one that suits your skin.
These simple steps will help you love your skin without feeling stressed, guilty or terrible about not being regular. Once you begin feeling comfortable, you can move to a self-care regimen beyond these basic practises.
