Today I’m going to share with you my personal guide to beautiful skin in 3 simple steps!.
To me, achieving beautiful skin is really not about slapping on multiple products on your skin. It’s that simple – Cleanse properly, moisturise and be stay happy!
Cleanse. Honestly this is the most most most important step! Our skin is exposed to so much dirt and pollution in the external environment, and not to mention internally we produce sebum and sweat. All these has to be removed in order for the skin to remain clean and be able to breathe and renew itself. And only if you remove all impurities on the skin would it be able to absorb any other products that you add to it right?
I realise that when I’m busy, I tend to neglect cleansing my face often which usually results in an acne breakout. If the pores of the skin are blocked with a build-up oil and dirt, it can result in blackheads and pimples. So always cleanse your face at least twice a day. Once in the morning and once before you sleep. If time permits, it’d be good if you can cleanse in the afternoon as well if you’ve oily-prone skin!
And of course, a good body wash not only helps to properly cleanse the skin but also to help rejuvenate the skin after a long day as well.
Dettol introduces its latest range of body wash - Dettol Radiance, which is a unique deep-cleansing formulation that also nourishes and purifies.
It’s formulated with a unique blend of Vitamin B3 and C. Vitamin B3 has long been regarded as the secret behind younger and firmer skin while Vitamin C is the perfect antioxidant (which works to defend free radical damage from the sun on the skin) to ensure healthy and supple skin! And of course we know that Dettol is renowned for its germ protection capabilities to deep cleanse and remove germs and impurities from within! This perfect harmony helps skin to reveal its inner radiance and maintain a healthy glow.
Moisturise. Keep your skin well-hydrated.
I can’t emphasise how important it is to keep your skin well-hydrated. As we go under the sun for prolonged periods, our skin actually gets dried out without us realising. Keeping your skin moisturised is important to aid in our skin’s repair functions and to renew skin cells. Also, as we age, our skin tends to loose moisture as it loses its protective barrier. Hence, it’s really important to ensure that our skin is properly hydrated to delay the onset of skin ageing.
Moisturizing your face is not only an important part when taking care of your skin but keeping your body well hydrated is just as important. Your body is made up of 75% water, which helps maintain your body temperature, transport nutrients around your body, flush out toxins, helps with digestion and cushions and lubricates organs.
Most of the time due to our busy lifestyle, I must say that I’m guilty of not drinking enough water in a day. Without enough water, metabolism and tissue repair are greatly affected. Dry skin can easily develop skin cracks which make it easier for bacteria and irritants to penetrate the skin and lead to infection. Also, drinking water can also help to flush out the toxins in the body, leading to healthier skin in the process.
Be happy! Too much stress can make a person unhealthy. In today’s fast-moving society, there’s just so much to worry about and so much to do. All these result in more stress and lesser sleep. Stress might lead to hormonal imbalance which results in breakouts and dull skin.
However, when one is happy, the whole body chemistry is affected and the body systems function well. Hence indirectly, it shows in your skin as well.
