Possessing flawless skin is not one that can be achieved overnight. It takes time, effort, and some amount of investment to look fresh, healthy and attractive both internally and externally.

Cost effective treatments for fresher healthier skin include:

Removing makeup before retiring for the night

Not cleansing your skin regularly can cause a build-up of dirt and products making pores appear larger. Your complexion will appear dull due to makeup being trapped against your skin giving you a prematurely aged look.

Cleansing correctly with products suited to your skincare needs

Most skin has an occasional breakout. When dealing with the occasional pimple, most of us think we need to dry out our skin, so choose products that are too harsh — which can cause further irritation than the breakout itself. We need to choose products that soothe whilst targeting your skins concerns, and always finish with a hydrating moisturizer.

Wearing Sunscreen every day

As we age our collagen levels decrease and our skin has less elasticity. The best defence against aging is to wear an SPF sunscreen greater than 30 every day regardless of the season. When applying, ensure that your décolletage and the back of your hands are covered as well.

Not picking or overly touching your face during the day

Most of us know we shouldn’t do this, but lots of us do it anyway.  Anytime you pick or pull at your skin, you are causing damage and creating irritation, scars and wrinkles. As much as its tempting we need to just stop.

Applying products in the correct order

One of the keys to maximizing the benefits of the products in your regimen is to apply products with a thinner consistency before the thicker, creamier ones — no matter what the active ingredients. Products with heavier consistencies can block lighter-weight ones from penetrating the skin and doing their job.

Over Exfoliating

It’s tempting but highly damaging in the long term to buff away too much of your top skin layer. You’re actually removing layers of the protective barrier that your skin has built and once removed, your skin is exposed to environmental toxins and sun damage, causing premature aging. Gentle exfoliation is needed at the most two to three times a week.

Ensuring that you have enough sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep helps your skin to look its best. When the skin is getting less than optimum rest, it becomes dull and pale with under-eye circles. A lack of sleep can be so stressful that it can cause our bodies — including our skin — to generate free radicals.

The Importance of Moisturiser

Regardless of your skin type, it’s imperative that you moisturize daily and apply cream at night. It’s a common misconception that those with oily skin should avoid moisturizers.

In fact, it’s vital that even oily skin gets moisture because, without it, the skin will overcompensate for the loss of hydration [with more oil], leading to breakouts and uneven skin texture.” Take note: Moisturizing adds water to the skin, not oil.
