Instagram is flooded with #NOFILTER celebrity pictures. Haven’t you wondered what they do to keep their skin healthy even after being exposed to stubborn makeup almost every day in their profession? Clearly, everyone out there has come up with their own version of the perfect skin care regimen that keeps their skin healthy and happy. Everyone wants to look as good as their favorite Instagram influencers. That is why this time, I have curated a list of my skincare rules that serve as the perfect little recipe to perfect skin. Read on for the ultimate list of essential skin care rules that I swear by.
#SKINCARE RULE 1
Apply the skincare products when your skin is damp for better absorption.
For your morning regimen, you must by cleansing your face and apply your products when your skin is still a little bit damp. When you apply your skincare products while your skin is damp, it helps the skin to soak up more of the ingredients and the hydration.
#SKINCARE RULE 2
Let your skin breathe.
You must try to make it a rule to come back home and remove your makeup to freshen up your skin and let your skin breathe. I recommend using gentle makeup remover, especially for the eyes. For stubborn makeup, you can add coconut oil.
#SKINCARE RULE 3
Try to add natural alternatives to avoid side effects.
Although I agree retinol works for the skin, I recommend adding a natural retinol alternative. In fact, I use my bakuchiol serum every day.
#SKINCARE RULE 4
Never forget to moisturize.
Never forget to moisturize your skin. Remember, even on the days your skin feels oily, it needs a healthy dose of nourishment and hydration; that is why you must add a lightweight and non-comedogenic moisturizer into your regimen.
#SKINCARE RULE 5
