HOW TO ACHIEVE A BEAUTIFUL AND GLOWING SKIN
1. Keep your face neat
I always keep your face neat by washing it in the morning, and before bed time. This is really not easy especially the morning part. I do get lazy to wash my face in the morning if I'm not going anywhere, but to keep acne out, I have to, because when my pores are clogged, I break out.
To be honest, I don’t like fruits, so I found a way to eat them: by making a parfait. Fruits like strawberries, apples, avocados, bananas, and pineapples do so well in keeping the skin young and beautiful. Growing up, my mum forced me to take fruits. I never liked them till I wanted to shed some weight as a model(7 years ago). I added fruits to my diet for a week and the results were amazing.
I can thank her now because my skin turned out great. Thank you, mama!
3. Stick to one brand of product.
There's no need of having a biased mind. If you are confused on what brand of cosmetics to use on your skin, consult a dermatologist. "My friend told me this product is good" is one reason you will end up disappointed. Again, our skin differs. Your skin might take time to start showing the results of a certain product, while someone else's skin might show the results immediately.
4. Natural oils!
Oh how I love natural oils!! I can’t wait to introduce to y’all this amazing oil I use.
Olive oil is good too, and I use that as my body lotion 3-4 days a week and it makes the skin smooth and supple.
5. Face masks!
If you follow my Instagram @quemoxie, you’ll know I’m such a fan of face masks, but the downside of these guys is that they can clog your pores, so I prefer to use the paper face masks.. when I finally get a hang of YouTube, I’ll show you in a video.
6. Night Sleep
Preaching about this will make me a hypocrite because I barely sleep at night. In fact, night is morning to me. For some reasons, I’m more creative at night, but hey there’s a reason we say “get your beauty sleep”. It’s really important if you want that flawless skin.
7. Eat healthy
More healthy foods and less unhealthy foods(processed foods/junks).
8. Detox, exfoliate and moisturize your skin at least twice a month.
9. Worry less and don't stress yourself much.
Stress is one of the reasons your skin ages quickly. AVOID Uv rays. If you close to me, you’ll know how much I hate sun! Don't stay under the sun too much. It destroys the skin especially the hot afternoon sun for those in Nigeria or other hot countries. The sun is not your friend. If you going out, wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15.
If you want that young beautiful look, you must exercise. Do squats, burpees, or run. By the way burpees are my favorite now!
Oh! No it’s not cliché when water lovers tell you how it makes their skin beautiful. It sure does, and also makes you lose weight! Try and see! Just be consistent. Drink two glasses when you wake up, before eat, in the afternoon, before shower, and before you sleep. I drink a lot of water, especially when I’m in my comfort zone.
Now, here is a final bonus. "Be happy always" play healthy songs if you are a song lover like me.
These are the natural things I do to maintain and keep my skin young, beautiful and healthy. It takes 28 days for what you do to become a habit so you have to keep practising till it becomes a part of you.
If you don't have money to afford expensive cosmetics, no problem.
If you try this and notice any change in your skin, do let me know, and don’t forget to share to others.
