Due to the transition of the season to winter, you might find it hard to adapt to the changing temperature. Aside from shopping for your new set of winter clothes, you should also give importance to your skincare routine during the winter season when it dries the most.
Considering that skin is one of the largest organs in your body, a significant percentage of your time and effort should also be allotted for it. So this November, we encourage you to participate in the National Healthy Skin Month!
Why Celebrate National Healthy Skin Month?
This celebration does not only give you a huge benefit to have your pampering time, but this is also the month which you can use to pay attention to the situation of your skin, as well as a reminder to keep your skin healthy!
Skin is the part that covers up your whole body and also the one that gets into physical contact with everything; that is why it is significant to monitor and maintain your skin in its fresh and radiant state.
Furthermore, this month is also the best opportunity to solve the skin problems that you keep whining for. In this matter, provided below are the top 3 Must-Do-Skincare Tips on keeping your skin in its best state, especially this National healthy Skin Month.
1. Drink Your Water
Are you drinking the recommended standard 8-10 glasses of water every day?
If yes, then keep up the excellent work, and if not, then maybe you should improve your lifestyle and practice taking a glass of water once in a while. Keeping yourself hydrated will not cost you money. It will actually let you save some.
Instead of buying milk tea or frappe, go for a healthier option - water.
2. Wash Your Face Daily
An essential tip, but a lot of people forget to do this. When you go out during the day, there are a lot of germs and bacteria that stick to you and your face. Having a clean face before going to bed is encouraged to have healthy skin.
However, you should also be mindful of these things when giving your face a refreshing bath:
- Use a clean cloth when drying your face
- Avoid using body towel as a face towel
- Avoid sharing your sheet to others
- Use clean, lukewarm water
- Use mild soap
- Do not soak your face in the soap for a very long time
- Make sure to wash it neatly
3. Set a Skincare Routine
Having your skincare routine is the best way to maintain and sustain the healthy condition of your skin. However, you may find it quite a challenge on how to establish a set of routine, especially if you are not using beauty products. If you will not do extensive research, it’s a possibility for you to meet failure.
In this regard, listed down were the steps to set a skincare routine:
The first step would be determining your skin type. Your skin type might be different from your friend or family members. There are oily, dry, smooth, rough, ordinary, and sensitive—but you can’t only decide on your own.
The most recommended thing to do is to visit a dermatologist or a skin doctor to identify the type of your skin. Aside from this, your doctor can also give you some guidance on how to maintain such skin.
- Buy Beauty products Suitable for your Skin Type
After Determining your skin type, then you should purchase skincare items that will suit your skin type. If you have sensitive skin, then you should buy a gentle product. If your skin is dry, then searching for the best moisturizer is a must. Always take note of using products that will enhance the state of your skin.
These are only some of the tips you can continue or start this month of Healthy Skin. Hopefully, you can follow the tips and maintain a healthy skin not only for this month but for the rest of your life.
