8 Things I Learned on My Skincare Journey

Have you ever looked in the mirror and shuddered at your reflection? If the answer is yes, then you are not alone. There is a common misconception that caring for your skin is akin to a full-time job or that it entails using countless cosmetic products to achieve a perfect look. The reality is that with just a few changes to your skincare routine, you will quickly notice improvements in the appearance of your skin and your self-confidence. 


What Every Individual Should Know About Their Skin 

Are you confused or overwhelmed regarding where to start on your own skincare journey? Here are the top eight things that everyone should know about their skincare: 

  1. Start with your pantry 

Yes, you read that correctly: before you venture off to the local cosmetics store and start purchasing an abundance of products, you should first take stock of what’s in your pantry. Foods that have excess sugar or are artificially processed are more likely to leave you with breakouts and blemished skin. By getting rid of these foods, you may see a noticeable difference in your skin. 


  1. Exercise is key 

Getting your heart pumping is not only good for your physical wellbeing but also great for your skin. Exercise triggers your lymphatic system, which naturally removes some toxins from your body that can cause skin issues. 


  1. Keep a bottle of water handy 

When you’re thirsty, you should always drink water: it will keep your skin well-hydrated, which provides you with a natural glow. 


  1. Be conscious of product ingredients 

If you notice that your skincare products are filled with ingredients that you can’t pronounce, the odds are strong that they aren’t benefiting your skin. Always read through the ingredients to ensure that they aren’t too harsh for your skin. 


  1. Wash off your makeup at the end of the day 

Going to bed without washing off your makeup can lead to clogged pores, which can result in blemishes. Remember to clean your face before you call it a night. 


  1. Get a good night’s sleep 

Most of us need to get at least eight hours of sleep every night. Sticking to a consistent sleep schedule will not only do wonders for your wellbeing but also improve your skin’s appearance. 


  1. Stay out of the sun 

Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause early signs of aging and increase the possibility of developing serious skin conditions such as melanoma. 


  1. Ask for help 

If you feel overwhelmed by your options for skincare products, don’t be afraid to ask for help as you seek out the right option based on your skin type.
