Skin Care 20 basic things to do for a glowing skin

"Clean off makeup brushes once a week to keep bacteria from being spread"

  • Published:

Your skin says a lot about your physical and emotional health. So, if your skin is not looking as great as you would like it to, you are probably not taking very good care of yourself.

The good news is, if you are willing to make small changes each day, you can get that glowing skin you dream of. It’s time to try these tips:

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. 

  • Break bad habits by keeping hands off of your face. The bacteria on your fingers is only making your skin problems worse.

  • Wash your pillowcases once a week. Bacteria on your bedding can cause breakouts.

  • Dry your skin with a soft t-shirt, instead of a towel. Some towels are too abrasive and cause tiny tears in the skin, where bacteria makes its way in.

  • After washing your face, use a toner that will clean pores without stripping skin of your natural oils.

  • Choose makeup that covers, as well as heals your acne.

  • Clean off makeup brushes once a week to keep bacteria from being spread.

  • Clean off your phone with an alcohol pad. Phones spend too much time near and on our faces to not be clean.

  • Moisturize with a face oil. While those with blemishes tend to shy away from oil, it can stop your skin from creating excess sebum, which causes breakouts.

  • If breakouts are located around your hairline, change out shampoos. Your skin might be reacting to the formula.

  • Incorporate lots of leafy greens into your diet.

  • Eliminate sugar and dairy from your diet to see if that makes a difference in your skin.

  • Exfoliate your face with a chemical exfoliating product a few times a week.

  • Use a skin clearing mask once a week.

  • Never go to bed without taking off your makeup. 

  • Be sure to get about 8 hours of sleep each night.

  • Exercise at least three times a week. 

  • Always massage lotions and cleansers into the skin in an upward, circular motion. This allows active ingredients to quickly penetrate the skin’s surface and remove trapped oils, dirt, and bacteria.

  • Apply makeup in a downward motion so the makeup sits on top of the skin and won’t be lodged in the pores.

  • Once a week, go a full day without makeup. This provides a rest from fragrances, allergens, preservatives, and oils.
