City life is very fast-paced and can prove quite tough for your skin. While salon visits are important, there are some simple things you can do in the comfort of your home to maintain your skin. If you have ever wondered how you can do a face clean-up at home, watch the video for a step-by-step guide.
Before you clanse your face, remember to wash your hands, as you do not want the bacteria on your hands to be transferred to your face and cause breakouts. Use a cleanser that suits your skin type and wash with lukewarm water as this help open up the pores. This will remove the dirt, sweat, excess sebum.
Take a coin size amount of the product and massage it on your skin in gentle circular motions. Use a face wash twice a day, after you wake up and before you go to bed.
Next reach for the scrub and massage it on your skin gently. A scrub has grainy texture which helps remove dead skin cell build up on your skin. A face wash does not remove this dead skin cell build-up and you need a scrub for this. Exfoliate your face once a week. You will immediately feel the difference; your skin is left feeling smoother and more radiant.
Apply a face mask in an even layer, making sure you cover all parts of your face. Let it sit for 5-7 minutes before you rinse it off with cold water. Always finish your skincare routine with cold water as this helps seal the pores and will not allow for dirt to enter and settle. This also helps minimise the appearance of pores. Pat dry with a towel and do not tug at your skin or drag the towel over the skin.
