DAY 1:Cleansing your skin every night

The importance of cleansing can never be ignored. Even if you haven’t worn makeup you should cleanse your skin before you go to sleep. Now the question arises why is cleansing important?

Cleansing facilitates the removal of dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris. Throughout the day the skin on your face is continually covered with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt, and old (dead) skin cells. Cleansing flushes away all the dirt from your face.

DAY 7: EAT HEALTHY 

Good nutrition is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Healthy food intake will lead to an optimal health condition that initially influences the nature of the skin. Foods such as whole grains, fibre, fruit and vegetables, with limited amounts of fat, sugar and salt promote skin health. Certain foods however have bad impacts on skin perspectives. Foods with saturated fat and sugar can cause unhealthy skin tone. Many researchers have proven that a healthy diet is a key to healthy skin.

VITAMIN A and its derivatives play a leading role in skin maintenance. They treat diseases and provide cosmetic benefits. Retin-A is one popular treatment that minimises sun damage and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It can also smooth your skin and improve uneven skin tone.

Diets high in VITAMIN C and low in fats and carbohydrates are linked with fewer wrinkles and age-related skin dryness, and less skin thinning. Selecting the right diet can be crucial in dealing with acne.

Findings from small studies suggest that following a low-glycemic diet may reduce the amount of acne you have. Low-glycemic foods include most fresh vegetables, some fresh fruits, beans, and steel-cut oats. Excessive sugar consumption can increase the risk of acne breakouts.
