Your skin is never going to look better. Now is the time to not only appreciate it but start really looking after your skin so it retains its natural glow and plump texture. It can seem daunting to know where to start. Here are some tips for taking care of your skin right now. Start, and stick to, a regimen It’s important that you know what type you have and the best way you can take care of it. Oily, dry, combination and normal skin types all require different care. Find a regimen of cleansing, toning and moisturising that you enjoy and works well for your type. This alone will ensure you’re well on the way to healthy and beautiful skin. Always remove your makeup before bed This is one of the most important rules you can learn to embrace. Keeping your makeup on overnight causes incredible damage to your skin. Over time, pimples will form and wrinkles will appear. But sometimes it does just seem like too much to handle, especially if you’ve had one too many drinks. In that case, reach for the wipes. These aren’t the best way to clean your skin but they are better than nothing. Better yet, go makeup free Taking a few days off from wearing makeup can do wonders for improving the health of your skin. In addition, you’ll start to feel better about yourself. You’ll begin to appreciate and even love the face in the mirror rather than rush to cover it. Start wearing sunscreen Another important skincare rule which you should include in your routine sooner rather than later. Without it you’ll soon start to develop sun spots and skin discolouration. To prevent this from happening, slather yourself in sunscreen daily, even when it seems the sun isn’t shining. Drink plenty of water You will no doubt have heard that you should drink at least eight glasses of water each day. Water makes up about 60% of your body weight and every system in your body depends on it. A lack of water can lead to you becoming dehydrated which will make your skin appear ashy and cracked. That’s why body cream for dark skin is so important. Your skin needs to be coated in a layer of moisturiser to feel and look smooth and supple. Image: Pixabay
