Therefore, reducing the amount of stress you’re under might help your skin’s condition. Reducing stress isn’t always easy in today’s world, where everything is fast-paced. But, there are some small things you can do to reduce the stress you’re under. This might be practising self-care techniques such as spending time before you go to sleep or after you wake up meditating, creating a relaxing atmosphere in your home, and making sure you are getting enough sleep each night. Improve Air Quality The air quality you surround yourself with will also have an effect on your skin. If you live in a busy city, that are a lot of chemicals hitting your face that you won’t even notice. Staying away from this is not always possible, which is why some make-up and cosmetic products actually have ingredients in them to protect you from this. Switching to one of these may make a difference. Also, if you’re a frequent cooker, make sure you always use extractor fans to remove the oils in the air, to stop them having such an effect on your skin. Sun Protect It is commonly known that UV rays can speed up the ageing process and are extremely damaging on your skin. That’s why to achieve great skin, you must make sure you are protecting it from those harmful UV rays. Also, note that you don’t only need SPF protection on sunny days. UV rays can penetrate clouds, meaning that SPF is always important. However, you should completely avoid being directly in the sun when it’s hot. Cleanse, Cleanse, Cleanse Sometimes, the secret to beautiful skin is as simple as your cleanser. It is often recommended that you cleanse your face once a day, so make sure the cleanser you’re using is suitable for daily use. Cleansing routinely will help you to remove any harmful bacterias on your face that could sink into your skin. Also, never sleep in your make-up. No matter how tired you are, you should always make sure you remove your make up before you hit the pillow. In addition to cleansing, you might also want to exfoliate your skin every so often. To do this, why not try using something different such as silk beauty cocoons? These silk cocoons can be used to gently exfoliate your face.
