[Beauty Tips] 7 Must-Dos For A Healthy Complexion

Having a healthy looking complexion isn't difficult! Keeping your skin in tip-top condition is actually easier than you think. Here are 7 Must-Dos for a good and healthy glowing skin. 

1. Drink Up!
Water works wonder for your body and skin! It flushes toxin and waste substances from your body. Also, it replenishes the skin's tissues, moisturizes the skin and maintain skin's elasticity, giving you a healthy and glowing skin. Thus, drink plenty of water (at least 8 glasses of water) a day!

2. Eat Healthy for Beauty
Kick away all the greasy, fried and junk foods! Consume more fruits and veggies (at least 2 servings each every day) instead as they contain powerful anti-oxidents which help to prevent free radical damage, protect your skin cells and slow down the aging process. Not only that... They are also rich in various nutrients(vitamins, minerals, fibers) which help to boost your immune system, detoxification and improve your complexion, keeping your body and skin healthy.

3. Keep Your Face Clean
Wash your face twice a day. Twice is enough! Over-washing rip away the skin's moisture and disrupts the skin's barrier which can cause drying, skin irritations and redness. During cleansing, be gentle with your skin. Do not rub or scrub your skin. 

If your skin is prone to acne breakouts, use products that specifically for troubled/acne skin. These usually contain anti-acne ingredients such as Salicylic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide or Tea Tree Oil.

4. Buff Away Dead Skin Cells
As I have mentioned in previous post, "EXFOLIATE the skin is an effective method to get rid of clogged pores. Exfoliation removes dead and dull skin cells, unclog the pores, leaving the skin looking more radiant and smoother. Once you buff away those dead skin cells, your skin tends to absorb skincare products even better. Thus, it's good to exfoliate once in awhile."

For those who have whiteheads, blackheads, flesh colored bumps that aren't inflamed, I recommend to exfoliate your skin once or twice a week. Do not exfoliate everyday! Excessive scrubbing can irritate the skin.

As for those who have lots of inflamed zits, you can skip this step for the moment. I wouldn't recommend to exfoliate when you have lots of inflamed zits as it may further aggravate the zits, causing them to get more inflamed. If you only have a few inflamed zits (like 1 to 3), it's fine. Just avoid exfoliating the area where the inflamed zits bloomed.

5. Moisturize Your Skin

No matter what skin type you have, MOISTURIZE is a daily must-do! Keeping your skin hydrated will give you a healthy, radiant and glowing look. Deep down, your skin naturally pumps out oil to the surface to keep it moisturized so if your skin is too dry, it will produce even more oil to compensate for the dryness. This could lead to excess oil production and eventually lead to clogged pores. Hence, don't ever leave out this step! A well-hydrated skin helps to slow down the rate of oil production. 

6. Remove Makeup Thoroughly
For those who wear makeup, make sure you thoroughly remove all traces of makeup before going to sleep. Sleeping with makeup can lead to clogged pores and acute acne breakouts.

7. Get Enough Sleep
Don't be a night owl! Your skin repairs and heals itself more effectively at night when you are asleep. Sleeping late and lacking of sleep affect your appearance(dull skin, dark eye circles, acne). Thus, to have a good complexion, sleep early and get enough sleep (at least 8 hours) each night.
