Dry? Sensitive? There is something for every skin type. You may want to show your skin some extra love by getting a full body skin exam by a dermatologist.
2. Keep your hands off your face.
Don’t touch your face unnecessarily because believe it or not but your hand can spread bacteria and cause breakout which can lead to scarring, so precaution is better than cure. Yes, we frequently touch our face and it’s a habit we can break, be mindful about your intention to keep your hands away from your face. It can defiantly save you from getting infected and also keep your skin safe So, it’s better to resist the urge to touch your face.
3. Wash your face right.
Washing face regularly is nice but it can also make your skin dry, taking out all the moisture your skin needs out. In case of acne, if not washed properly can lead to new breakout. Make sure the product or products you are using are cleansing your skin as well as moisturising it.
4. Let the blood do its job.
Blood flowing beneath your skin is nurturing and keeping your skin from unwanted stuff. All you need to do is offer the blood flow stimulation by a gentle massage. By carrying out regular facial exercises, you promote the circulation of blood to the different areas of the face, thus replenishing the oxygen supply in the muscles and the skin. This will result in a bright complexion and beautiful healthy glow. Hence laddies get that facial done once a week. 5. Too much is never good.
Layering your skin with too many products is not a good idea. It can be rough on your skin. When the pores on our faces are covered up, it can lead to skin irritation and breakouts. Always remember your skin can feel suffocated too, so go low on product, let your skin breath, let it shine.

The skin renews itself while you sleep, when you leave makeup on, you are preventing that from happening. The skin ceases to breathe and fatigue signs appear soon enough. Take it down and moisturize your skin before heading towards bed.
