Skincare Tips from Millies

Don’t have time for intensive skin care regime? Join the cue! Pamper yourself with the basics. Good skin care and healthy lifestyle choices can really help delay the natural aging process and prevent various skin problems. Get started with these five no-brainer tips.

  • Don’t shower for too long or bath in very hot water, warm water only.  –they remove too much oil from your skin
  • Avoid soaps altogether. Strong soaps and detergents can strip oil from your skin. Instead, choose mild cleansers, a cream is great for removing make up and a gel is great for removing oil.
  • Shave carefully. Protect your skin, apply shaving cream, lotion or gel before shaving. For the closest shave, use a clean, sharp razor. Razorpits are great for sharping your razors. Shave in the direction the hair grows, not against it.
  • Pat dry. After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin.
  • Moisturize dry skin. If your skin is dry, use a moisturizer that fits your skin type. It is so important to get the right products for your skin, remember you are trying to protect your skin during the day and restore it at night-time. Products such as Voya products are highly recommended
  1. Eat a healthy diet

A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Make sure they are plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins in your meals. The association between diet and acne isn’t clear — but some research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. Supplements are also a fantastic addition to help with keeping both healthy on the inside and out.

  1. Manage stress

This goes without saying, Try not get stressed out. Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin — and a healthy state of mind — take steps to manage your stress. Set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. The results might be more dramatic than you expect.
