Skincare Routine for Flawless Skin - Even Without Makeup!

Skincare Routine for Flawless Skin - Even Without Makeup!

Every girl wants flawless, glowing skin. You end up using a variety of makeup products to achieve that dewy finish, but are those crucial to a radiant skin? What if we told you, you could enjoy the same glow without using any makeup?

Below tips and tricks can help you flaunt the skin you always dreamed of – really, without any makeup!

Wash with cool water: Washing your face with hot water can dry out the facial skin and lead to flaking or irritation. It is best to wash with cold water. If you live in cooler climates, opt for lukewarm water for your daily skin cleansing routine.

Exfoliate regularly: Exfoliating your skin, even once a week, can help eliminate the buildup of dead cells on the surface. It also clears up excess oil and opens up clogged pores. Invest in a good-quality exfoliant which is suited to your skin type for the best results.

Moisturise: Oily, dry or combination skin—you can’t skip moisturizing. Using a soothing, natural moisturiser like Uriage Thermal Water keeps the skin hydrated and plump. Use a quick spritz in the morning, after workouts, and after shaving/epilation for optimum hydration and radiance.

Drink more water: Apart from external hydration, you also need to drink plenty of water to keep your skin supple and smooth. Eight glasses of liquid per day are ideal (excluding caffeinated drinks or alcohol, both of which contribute to dehydration).

Improve your diet: You need skin superfoods like Papaya - rich in Vitamin C that aids in collagen synthesis; Walnuts – contain Omega 3 along with antioxidants; Sweet Potato – rich in Vitamin A that helps manage acne; Tomatoes – contain lycopene that improves skin tone.

Sleep 8 hours: Beauty-sleep is not a myth. Getting the required amount of uninterrupted sleep helps our body decrease cortisol levels, which cause skin inflammation. So sleep eight hours and wake up to naturally dewy skin!

Exercise: We all know regular exercise keeps the body fit, but did you know it also benefits the skin? You don’t need to hit the gym; you can go for a run or join a swimming class to get the daily dose of physical activity. It helps to improve blood circulation and aids in eliminating toxins.

Stop touching your face: The more you touch or rub your face throughout the day, the more germs you transfer from your hands. Bacteria from your fingers can cause or worsen acne and infections.

If you want your skin to be healthy and radiant, follow the tips mentioned above. You’ll enjoy the way your face looks in your next Instagram photo!
