A lot of people think that in order for them to have a healthy, glowing skin is by adopting an expensive skin care regime.

1.       Use suitable cleanser

Cleanser is important since it is the first step to clean your face from debris. It is okay to opt for a cheaper range of cleanser but make sure that the cleanser is suitable for your skin type. For instance, someone with acne prone skin should go for the cleanser that contains salicylic acid.

 

2.       Moisturize your skin

This is one of the important step that most people tend to skip. “I have an oily skin, do I still need to moisturize?” Of course! If you have an oily skin you might want to skip a heavy and cream based products. Choose a light lotion instead. Anyway, by moisturizing, you can reduce the chances of skin problems and also can help your skin to stay young, so start moisturizing now.

 

3.       Always wear sunscreen

“We know that 90 percent of skin cancers and 90 percent of the sign of aging comes from ultraviolet light. That, we know for a fact. And the antidote to that is sunscreen” – Gohara, M.D. From now on, you should include sunscreen in your daily routine, 365 days a year. Not only sunscreen can protect you against skin cancer but also, it can help to prevent large pores, uneven skin tone and also fine lines.

 

4.       Regular exfoliation

Exfoliating agent will remove the top layer of the skin to reveal new, healthy and glowing skin. However, do not over exfoliate your skin. Over exfoliating will cause irritation, redness and increase your skin’s sensitivity.

 

5.       Add hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is really good at retaining moisture and also works for any skin type. As you age (we all do), your skin gradually loses its natural ability to retain moisture. There is a recent research that HA also has antioxidant properties so yeay! This means that HA can act as a shield against free radicals.
