CUTTING DOWN ON SUGAR
I find that whenever I’m having more of the sugary stuff, it really makes a difference to how my skin’s looking. I’m not talking about those little bits here and there, because I’m all for treating yo’self. But when you’re reaching for a little bit of something sweet after every meal, thats when it starts to become too much of a habit. I find reaching for fruit and nuts throughout the day much better, and helps keeps the spots at bay too.
WASHING MAKEUP BRUSHES
This is something I just keep forgetting to do, but I try to wash my makeup brushes and sponges at least once a week. Its such a boring chore, right? I don’t wear makeup every single day but it always feels much better using clean ones, rather than those that might have icky bateria on, even the thought makes me shudder a little.
When we are sleeping a lot, making sure we drink enough water, and have less ‘life stresses’, our skin always looks its best. Unfortunately, its not always as simple as that, but we can control some things. Aiming to drink 2 litres of water a day, and getting your 8 hours a night are goals we can always aim for. After all, they benefit much more than our skin.
SIMPLE SKINCARE ROUTINE
Whenever I have a breakout looming, I either go all in with the masks, toners, facial sprays, or completely strip it all back and only use a number of products that I know won’t do further damage. Usually, I found the latter works the best. Not giving my skin too many products to contend with, and especially leaving it alone and not messing with it, always makes it clear up and be back to normal much quicker.
Do you have any tips for breakouts?
