Here is our secret to perfect skin in 5 simple steps that won’t break the bank:
CLEANSE: Cleansing is definitely the first step to perfect skin. Do not use regular soap on face, rather, invest in a foaming wash that would leave your skin clean yet not strip it off all moisture. Suffering from drier skin? A milder, soap-free cleanser such as Cetaphil is a great option.
EXFOLIATE: This is a necessary step in your skin care routine. Exfoliation which can be done using a loofah, body brush or scrub helps in skin cell renewal, giving smoother and brighter skin + increases the positive effects of moisturiser. Related Article: 5 D.I.Y Simple Home-Made Scrub Recipes
MOISTURIZE: This ensures that all moisture lost from carrying out the steps above is restored. Moisturize daily for beautiful and younger looking skin. Coconut Oil, Argan Oil, Olive Oil and Shea Butter are great natural moisturizers.
SUNSCREEN: Sunscreen is a necessary step that a number of people skip in their skin care routines. Sunscreen is great for everyone from Caucasians to Asians, Latinos and even Blacks as it protects the skin from the harmful rays of the sun which causes premature ageing. Steps 3 and 4 can be joined by investing in an all-in-one moisturizer + SPF of not less than 15.
HYDRATE: Who ever said the inside doesn’t matter when it comes to skin care? Drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily will give you that natural glow. Not too keen on the taste of water? Add a slice of lemon or orange.
