The Ultimate Skincare Guide

The path to acquiring healthy, glowing skin is not as easy as it may sound. There is no solid fool-proof technique to achieve flawless skin. Each individual is unique and what works for one may not for the other. Therefore, it takes a great deal of trial and error to determine which products and techniques work for each individual’s skin condition. Here are a few skincare tips to help achieve positive results and notice a visible improvement in your skin condition.

Eat a well-balanced diet

Regardless of how trivial this might seem, your diet plays a major role in helping you maintain a healthy lifestyle which in turn shows up through your skin. A high intake of foods that are loaded with sugar and preservatives can take a toll on your skin and increase the rate at which the signs of ageing appear. In addition, an excessive intake of sugar or oily food can increase the production of sebum and also cause acne. So if you don’t want to see those wrinkles appearing before your 30s it’s time to ditch the soda and sip some green tea or acai teatox instead.

Be consistentWhen it comes to maintaining your skin, you must keep in mind that ‘consistency is key’. You cannot moisturize once a week and then complain that your skin is as dry as the Sahara desert. If you want that flawless skin, you’ve got to work for it. Make sure you establish a skincare routine and follow it religiously. Choose a good quality cleanser, toner and moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type. If you are in your mid 20s you could also include a serum to give it that additional boost and give you that glowing effect.

De-stress often

One of the most common causes of unhealthy skin, wrinkles and acne is stress. If you are always loaded with work and experience a great deal of stress on a daily basis, this will eventually reflect on your skin. Therefore, it is important to de-stress by taking out an hour each day to go for a run or participate in an activity that you enjoy. It could be as simple as baking, painting or even using a homemade coffee scrub and putting on a peel off mask afterwards. You just have to figure out what exactly helps you relax.If you follow these tips and ensure that you do so, consistently, you will definitely notice a visible difference in your skin within a very short period of time.
