"Generally skincare tips are just about enhancing your appearance. There is no one single answer and no tips that are guaranteed to give you amazing skin. But I can share with you some of the things I do on a regular basis...
1. Use a high quality skincare brand
2. Don't over wash the face
3. Drink a glass of warm water with honey and lemon juice before breakfast
4. Rubbing your ears and massaging your scalp 36 times a day improves facial circulation
5. Sleep without your face covered to let the skin breathe
6. Apply a natural mask of honey and apple cider vinegar for 30 mins each night before your pre sleep beauty regime
7. Take a balanced diet rich in complex carbohydrates and essential fatty acids
8.Omega oils 3,6,9 are excellent for skin. I recommend Udo's Choice Ultimate Blend
9. Dance because it lifts your soul and it shows in your face!
10. Do a self-facial massage daily to maintain the suppleness of your facial muscles
When it comes to this region specifically, the best things for skin and one main tip is don't over-wash your face
And finally the most valuable piece of skincare advice I can offer is: Patience, intelligence, precision and intuition to get the best of ourselves.
When it comes to this region specifically, the best things for skin and one main tip is don't over-wash your face. The impulse is to wash often to make you feel clean. In fact what you are doing is creating an over stimulant on the skin which can cause unnecessary breakouts, as well as make your skin operate in the zones of over dry or over oily.
Wash your face with good quality cleanser to not only through cleanse remove your make up but also protect the oil being striped away. Exfoliation is an absolute essential in any climate. The skin is constantly shedding dead cells. Heat and dry air can accelerate dead skincells on your face which can clog your pores and cause all kind of problems.
Also if you are having heavy make up on every single day is more so important have regular
exfoliation to maintain your skin health and glow.
Obviously, sun protection is essential, but this can be a double-edged sword because some sunscreens may protect but are also heavy that they block your pores and can cause other problems. I suggest sunblock instead of sunscreen as it acts more like a shield against the sun by sitting in the skin surface. Sunscreen is too easily to absorbed and therefore needs constant application."
