Got an important dinner to go to and want to look extra glowy?
Eating oily and spicy food along with drinking lots of sugary drinks and alcohol could cause acne, skin dryness and more. Here are 6 tips to help you soothe your skin and look great!
Ensure that you’re drinking 0.035litres of water for every kg of body weight. For example, if you weigh 50kg, 50 x 0.035 = 1.75 litres of water a day. Increase the amount of water if you are exercising or work outdoors.
If you have dry skin and work in an air-conditioned environment, use a heavier cream during the day to create a barrier that prevents water loss via your skin. For people with oily skin, try a water based moisturiser that’s non-comedogenic to prevent clogged pores.
Instead of physical exfoliation with beads or rushed seeds, try chemical exfoliation with a mild AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) or BHA (beta hydroxy acid) product.
It’s either rain or sunshine here so make sunscreen a staple in your skincare regimen. Sunscreen prevents premature wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and most importantly, lowers your risk of skin cancer.
Hot weather and sitting in air-conditioning for a whole day can dehydrate your skin, causing fine lines. Grab a moisturising or soothing sheet mask, stick it in the fridge and slap it on at the end of your day to give your skin a boost in hydration.
Vitamin E is another secret behind flawless skin. It’s a nutrient to your skin which helps to reduce scarring, provide moisture and helps to prevent the formation of wrinkles.
