With Chinese New Year being less than a week away, we’re sure you want everything picture-perfect. You’ve probably already started clearing all the junk you have in your house and doing your best to make it look CNY-ready. As with everything else, you'd definitely want to look and feel your best. Clear your house and clear your skin too! Here are some of our top tips to help ensure clear skin this new year.
Sleeping with the previous night’s makeup on is basically suicide, you’re asking for a breakout. It's important to let your skin breathe, because while you sleep, the skin renews itself. Regular skin cleansing everyday is critical to maintaining healthy looking and feeling skin. Use a suitable cleanser every night before bed and watch this work wonders on your skin.
Sleep is for the weak? Nah, watch those who skimp on sleep! They get tired-looking complexion, dark circles, puffy under-eye bags and even breakouts. In ensuring clear skin, it’s important to get a good night’s sleep because that’s when skin regenerates and restores itself.
Beauty sleep really isn’t a myth. So make sure you get more than 6 hours of quality sleep a day because that’s how Sleeping Beauty did it ;)
Everyone knows this, but sometimes you just can’t help yourself with those pesky little life-ruiners (#firstworldproblems). Picking, popping or poking those suckers will definitely not give you the results you’re looking for. Yes, we understand that one pimple might bring down your CNY mood a couple of notches, but don’t fret. There’s always a solution. Try applying a spot treatment/pimple cream to the affected area and let it go away on it’s own.
If you aren’t already using a toner in your morning and evening skin care routine, now is the time to start. Toners help balance the skin’s natural pH level and soothe your complexion, in addition to giving you clearer skin.
Following these tips and a good skincare regime, you're on your way to clear and radiant skin. Your skin will reap the benefits and you'll be glowing, with or without makeup.
