MY BEAUTY TIPS
1. KNOW YOUR FACE
Nobody talks about this, yet it’s super important. For the longest time, I had these dry spots around my nose. They were so bad, peeling off and at the same time I was breaking out like craze. That happened 25 days of the month for 4-5 years. I am not even kidding. Because they were so severe, I could not understand exactly what it was. I thought it was just some sort of acne. Acne usually happens when your skin is oily so I just assumed I had oily skin and I just made things worse.
Only last year I went into the drugstore and I bought the Avene Cold Creme for super dry skin. I would put it on every night after a very good cleanse so that my skin could absorb most of the product. I went to bed looking so shiny and covered in oils. After a week my dry around my nose was gone.
My point is; by knowing your skin you can treat it accordingly.
I am not talking about buying different products, although that also helps (never settle till you find the perfect one!!) but for other habits you might have. For example, if you wash your face twice a day, wash it once. Try it for a week. See how your body reacts. Eliminate one food out of your diet for a week. Start with bread or dairy. If it works, continue. If it doesn’t change it.
3. INVEST IN YOUR FACE – YOU DESERVE IT!!
My thing is; I’d rather buy good quality products that make a difference in my face and life than buy other products that won’t work as well. No, I’m not a millionaire. I’m a college student. I just save up my money and I don’t waste it so that I can treat myself later. Just be sure to make your research before buying anything expensive!! Look up reviews.
Find a very good deep pore cleansing mask and use it twice a week. It’s a game changer, I promise. After you are finished with that, immidiately put on a very moisturising mask. Because your face and your pores are so clean, you absorb as much of the moisturising mask as possible. Your skin will thank you afterwards.
5. GET YOU THE PERFECT SPOT TREATMENT
For me for the past half of a year, it’s propolis. It’s all natural (you can actuallty even drink it!!) and it dries out any spots you might have. It works wonders!
6. LAY OFF THE MAKEUP
It can be hard in the beggining, but it’s worth it. I know a lot of people are not used to it. Let your skin breathe a couple times and week and if you take your makeup off right when you come home.
7. AVOID THE FRAGNANCED PRODUCTS
You don’t need any extra harsh chemicals on your skin. We torture it enough with pollution, makeup, bad eating habits. It’s completely unnecessary.
8. CLEAN YOUR PILLOWS AND YOUR PHONE
I personally change my pillow cases twice a week as opposed to my sheets which I change once a week. You rest your face on that pillow, it’s super important to keep it clean. Also, keep in mind that you take your phone everywhere with you. You put it on tables, in your pocket, in your bag and on your face while you talk where your makeup rubs off. At the end of the day, take a wet wipe and clean it. You don’t want all that dirt on you.
I didn’t want to include that, because everybody says it. I just wanted to remind you that asside that moisturiser you need to drink water. What comes in, shows out!
10. WORKOUT A ROUTINE – STICK WITH IT!
Now that you have your favorite products make sure you use them! Be consistent! Even late at night when you come home and all you want to do is sleep. Don’t even think about it, go straight to the bathroom. There’s nothing to negiotiate.
Take care of yourself!
