It is always better to be educated and start good skincare habits at an early age to protect it from challenges that begin showing up during adolescence. Also, adopting skincare practices will develop into a pattern that fits well into your daily routine, like brushing your teeth.
If you are not mindful of how you treat your skin now, then with time, it is the only thing that you would be thinking of and end up spending a lot of money on.
Here are five habits that are simple, gentle, and not too expensive.
Start with drinking one glass of lukewarm water every morning, right after you wake up. This will initiate removing toxins from the blood and digestive tracts, giving you clear skin and healthy hair. Drink about eight more glasses of water at timely intervals throughout the day.
Stretching your body to a 30-minute workout will increase blood flow to equal parts of the body and release dirt and toxins in the form of sweat. The increase in blood flow will also produce endorphin hormones, making you feel happy and energized.
Healthy & Fulfilling Breakfast
Eating the right balance of proteins, calcium, and vitamins will help your body protect itself from free radical invasion and inflammation.
A.M. & P.M. Skincare Routine
Cleansing, Toning, Moisturizing, and Sunscreen (Protection) is a 4-step routine that needs to be practiced every morning. You can skip applying sunscreen at night. Also, make sure to use products that suit your skin type and be gentle while handling your skin.
Change Pillow Cases
Pillowcases are almost always clogged up with bacteria, oil, dirt, and drool. Changing it once every week will ensure clear and less irritated skin.
Experts say that the less you touch your skin, the less you will have to deal with skin problems. This does not mean that you should do nothing when it comes to skincare. It implies that touching your skin should only be limited to cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and sunscreen application. When you go about your day, you should practice a habit of not touching the skin with your phone or hands as these are exposed to a lot of dirt and bacteria.
Also, acne is another forbidden area that gets triggered at the slightest touch. So, leaving it alone would be a wise choice until otherwise recommended by a dermatologist.
The skin is a complicated tissue and requires a lot of patience as well as cleanliness to be kept healthy and glowing. Therefore, it is better to practice good skin care habits at an early age so that you can be consistent and get to know your skin better as you age.
