Fortunately, you can keep your skin happy and healthy by following a regular skincare routine. Take a look at these top tips to keep your skin looking and feeling great.

Dehydration can cause a wide range of symptoms, including dizziness, fatigue and hazards. However, you’ll often notice the first signs of dehydration on your skin. If your complexion appears dull or your skin feels tight, you might be mildly dehydrated. Check your water intake and commit to consuming a healthy amount every day to boost your skin quality.
Use a gentle cleanser
It’s important to cleanse your skin regularly to remove bacteria and irritants but you don’t want to do more harm than good. Strong cleansers may not be the right choice for your skin and could be aggravating it. Some products can even cause breakouts. When you’re trying new products, always start with something mild and work your way up to a stronger formula if you need to.
Try mineral makeup
If you choose to wear makeup on a daily basis, your skin is going to be covered up for a significant portion of the time. By selecting a foundation that allows your skin to breathe, you can reduce the risk of developing blemishes and other skin problems. Mineral foundation is a great option for many people and can help you to avoid the common problems caused by heavy, liquid foundation. What’s more – you can choose a mineral foundation with built-in SPF to keep your skin protected from the sun.
Change your pillowcase daily
No matter how frequently you change your bedding, you should use a fresh pillowcase every night. Germs and bacteria are transferred to your pillowcase when you rest your face against it, so you don’t want to re-introduce skin irritants by using the same pillowcase more than once. For an extra touch of luxury, opt for a silk pillowcase and wake up with a smooth, wrinkle-free complexion.
Keep out of the sun
When your skin is exposed to the sun, harmful UVA and UVB rays can put your health at risk. As well as increasing the risk of developing skin cancer, spending too much time in the sun can lead to premature signs of ageing. Do your best to stay out of the sun when you can and always use a sunblock or sun cream if you’re going out and about.
Find the right skincare routine
Everyone’s skin is different, so what works for other people may not be the right option for you. By experimenting with different routines, products and techniques, you can discover the best way to care for your skin. Take the time to find a skincare routine that really enhances your skin and you’ll enjoy an unblemished and glowing complexion.
