7 Tips For A Great Skin

Stephanie Linus

Washing your face and choosing the right products are some essential ways to achieve great skin. Some of us have it worse than others; it all comes down to what routine and products work for you. It is rare to have great skin naturally, so it’s important to maintain your skin and keep it healthy and clean. Continue reading for some ways to achieve great skin!

1. Take Makeup Off
My first and most important in ways to achieve great skin is taking your makeup off. It’s important to take your makeup off at night before bed in order to clean out your face and pores. Otherwise, your makeup will be clogged up in your pores and this will result in acne. You want to remove all the clogged up dirt and oil throughout the day. If you sleep with your makeup on, your skin will not be at its healthiest and you are most likely to break out!

2. Wash Your Face
My next tip is to routinely wash your face. Along with taking your makeup off at night, be sure to wash your face to get rid of any dirt and oil. This will keep your skin healthy and smooth. You also want to wash your face in the mornings. This is so that your skin will be clean and look great throughout the day. Also, your makeup application will look even better and smoother!

3. Cleanse & Exfoliate
Cleansing your face twice a day will help deep clean your skin, rather than washing it with plain water. There are different purposes and types of cleansers. This includes sensitive, dry, oily, combination, acne prone skin, or other specific types. An exfoliator is used to remove any dead skin you may have and should be used about 3 times a week accordingly. This will instantly make your skin feel and look smoother and cleaner!

4. Toner
I recommend using a toner after washing your face at night (before moisturizing). The purpose is to keep your skin’s balance and hydrate your skin. This also removes extra makeup that might still be on your skin even after cleansing. Toners are normally applied to the skin with a cotton pad. There are many types of toners for your skin type.

5. Moisturize
Another important step in skincare is to moisturize your face every day and night! This keeps your skin hydrated and with a high SPF, it protects from sun damage. A moisturizer also provides a good base for makeup application. Make sure to moisturize your face after every wash. This will make you skin feel and look great!

6. Spot Treatment
For those struggling with pimples or acne, I recommend some type of spot treatment. Many that are found in drugstores will work great. Make sure the ingredients include salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. These are great for overnight or daily spot treatment. They will help your acne go away faster and they burn so good, that you can feel it working!

7. Masks
My last tip for great skin is to use a mask. Try to use a mask about once a week. There are endless types of masks depending on what your skin needs. There are many great drugstore masks, as well. Figure out whether your skin needs hydration, a more even skin tone, or anything else, and find the product for you!

Those were my tips and ways to achieve great skin! Make sure you do your research on products, keep your skin clean and healthy, and don’t forget that keeping yourself healthy will also help your skin.
