I got swept up in the skincare craze a couple of years ago when I had a really bad allergic reaction to groundnuts. It was crazy and a little bit traumatizing cuz prior to that experience, I didn’t have any skin issues and I didn’t really spend a lot of time caring for my skin. Now I do, it’s the best thing ever. From the countless resources I’ve consumed, these are the tips & tricks I’ve picked up that I enjoy the most and I hope you will too. Let’s get right into it!
Exfoliate in upward motions. Go against the grain.
Forehead first, neck last. Work downwards in upward circular motions, press or pat.
Use brushes over sponges. Sponges are a breeding ground for bacteria.
Wash and disinfect your makeup brushes often.
Change your pillowcases at least twice a week.
Invest in a good serum. A good serum can even replace a moisturizer. My favorite is Esteé Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum. Pricey but totally worth it .
Sleep on your back. This is cuz your sheets pull against your skin and cause wrinkles.
Keep your partying to a minimum and drink lots and lots of water!
Pay attention to your gut health. Eat healthy, exercise and meditate. Less stress equals healthy skin.
Be consistent with your routines. This, I think, is one of the most crucial rules. In everything, consistency is key.
I hope these tips will help you transform your routines as they did mine! Until next time.
Yours truly, Chalya.
