We at Team BeBeautiful care a lot (and we mean a lot!) about our skin and invest a lot into keeping it looking healthy and glowing. We are forever in the search for new and effective ways to keep our skin looking dewy and clear.

The secret to good skin? It’s simple. Consistent and regular care. Whether you spend 2 minutes or 10 every morning tending to your skin, make it count. Here are 5 skincare tips that will maximise the efficiency of your skincare products and lead you down the path of clear skin.

 

Apply moisturiser within 60 seconds after cleansing

Apply moisturiser within 60 seconds after cleansing

After cleansing your skin, your pores are open and you begin to lose moisture after about a minute of washing your face. So apply a good toner, which resets the pH balance of the skin and a good moisturiser within 60 seconds of washing your face.

 

Use products which boost blood circulation

Use products which boost blood circulation

Products that are infused with niacinamide and vitamin B12, when massaged onto skin, help dilate the blood capillaries just under your skin and boost circulation. This increases the ‘glow’ in your skin.

 

Never skip or skimp exfoliating your skin

Removing the build-up of dead skin cells is important to get healthy clear skin. Exfoliating also helps your skin absorb skincare products better. Look for products that have lactic, salicylic and glycolic acids, which are mild and gentle exfoliating agents.

 

Regularly massage your face

Regularly massage your face

Massaging your face in circular motions starting from the base of your neck and upwards moving towards your cheeks, temples and forehead will increase the blood circulation and increase product absorption into the skin.

 

Include vitamin C into your routine

Include vitamin C into your routine

Use products and serums which are rich in vitamin C if you are after a glow on your skin. This ingredient eliminates pigmentation and evens out your complexion. As an alternative you combine a few drops of lemon juice with coconut or jojoba oil and massage it on your face every night.
