Zero pores. Freckle-free. Porcelain smoothness.
Who doesn't dream of having a flawless, healthy complexion? Read on for our top skincare tips that'll get your skin glowing in the pink of health.
Back to basics: A great complexion starts with clean skin. Here's how to keep it that way.
Wash your face twice a day with a suitable cleanser for your skin type. If your skin is sensitive, choose a gentle cleanser that is free of fragrance and harsh irritants. If you have acne-prone skin, look for an oil-free face wash with anti-acne medications to prevent future breakouts.
Know when and how to pop a pimple. Leave your zits alone! Don't pick at them or you could risk infection and scarring. If your pimple is showing head and looks ready to pop, it's okay to gently extract the contents to aid your skin's healing process, but make sure you know the correct way to pop a pimple safely – with clean hands.
Keep your makeup brushes and sponges clean by washing them with soap and warm water once a week or every other week. Every now and then, clear out the old makeup and stock up on new ones – most cosmetics have an average shelf life of 6 to 12 months.
