All girls want clear and beautiful skin, unfortunately we aren't all blessed with naturally flawless skin. In secondary school I had rather bad acne and I was prescribed medication to try and clear my skin. The medication didn't work very well so I figured I just needed to make more of an effort with my skin. Recently I have made a huge change in my skin care regime and I have noticed a huge difference in my complexion. These are the steps that I have learned to work well with my skin.
Step 1: Cleansing
Cleansing your skin is very important it removes bacteria, makeup and oil build up. Apply your cleanser to your face and use circular motions to remove any toxins. Then remove with a damp flannel and pat your face dry with a soft towel.
Step 2: Exfoliating
It is important to exfoliate at least two to three times a week. Exfoliators stimulate circulation and removes dead skin cells, oil and dirt. After you have finished exfoliating remove with warm water and use a flannel to pat cold water over your face to ensure you close your pores. After exfoliating my skin always fees lovely and smooth!
Step 3: Moisturising
Moisturising is essential in everyone’s skin care routine, weather you have dry, oily or combination skin. It is still important! I have oily skin and I have realised if I do not moisturise my skin feels more oily as my skin overcompensates moisture by creating excess oil.
Step 4: Face Masks
Face Masks are great for bringing tired and dull skin back to life. This step is more luxurious and I think most girls love to relax with a face mask. When applying your face mask always dampen your skin with warm water and apply the product in circular motions. When removing use a warm flannel and then finally rinse your flannel with cold water and dab your face to close your pores. I like to use face masks 1-2 times a week.
I hope these tips were helpful, don’t forget everyone’s skin is different. Skin care is about trial and error until you find a regime that suits your skin.
