Skincare routine for whitening and acne
What is a Skincare Routine?
What are the main components of an effective skincare routine? Well, there are three key elements that need to be considered when we talk about skincare routines, and they include but are not limited to, moisturizing, nourishing, reducing redness as well as inflammation, lightening, removing dead skin cells, preventing damage, treating pimples, eliminating oil buildup on your skin, making it easier to keep skin healthy and glowing, helping to prevent acne scarring, and healing and brightens skin. The skin is fragile and needs to care for every day. Therefore, it must be treated in order for the normal function of the skin to continue to function properly and smoothly. In order for your skin to repair itself after the trauma you have been through as a result of acne and other skin conditions, you can follow this simple skincare routine:
1) Moisturize and hydrate: Your body should be moisturized at all times. Not only does moisturization help ensure that your skin is kept at optimum moisture level so that your skin feels comfortable, but also promotes relaxation as it allows blood to flow through your pores so that your pores start shedding the excess water, which eventually helps relieve your skin of any excess liquid. It is important that your skin is hydrated because, over time, dehydration can lead to breakouts.
2) Protectant. You will want to apply a product such as jojoba or a beeswax in order to protect your skin from external irritants such as dirt, smoke, sunlight, etc. Having a protective sunscreen layer on the outside of your skin helps keep your skin safe from environmental hazards. Even if you have oily skin, applying jojoba can help soothe irritation on your skin.
3) Maintain pH levels. One of the most basic rules for skin care is never to let skin pH decreases below 6. A higher pH means that your skin is more acidic. When your pH becomes too high, your skin starts looking rough. So the acid comes out of your pores, which leads to breakouts. There are two types of pH levels, an optimal pH level for healthy skin (5-6) and slightly above 7 for acne-affected skin. Just remember to always maintain an ideal pH level for your skin. Once again, one way to maintain your pH levels is by hydrating and moisturizing your skin at all times, drinking plenty of fluids, avoiding harsh facial scrubs, washing your hands thoroughly, maintaining good skin hygiene, and wearing sunscreen and clothing that protects your skin from environmental damage. For those with oily skin, you should drink lots of water regularly.
4) Control water retention: Water is needed to stay hydrated, but if you constantly lose water, it can cause your skin to become dry and irritated. That is why it is extremely important to balance water intake. Drink lots of fluids, and you will see a smoother, younger tone to your skin. Also, by adding salt to your foods to reduce water retention will help eliminate any signs of hyperpigmentation resulting in spots, scars, and dark patches that have popped up on your face.
6) Create a smooth texture. The smooth texture is essential as it helps to retain the moisture in the skin to ensure healthy moisture levels in the skin. When there is excessive moisture, there can be extra bacteria and extra oil left over. Creating a texture is possible by using gentle pressure and a little bit of massaging to release that extra fluid without actually hurting your skin.
