#1 Dermaplaning / Face Shaving
You may be wondering how running a razor through your face can be categorised under skincare. Welcome to our world. It is very much a part of it. But let’s take a step back and explain what is dermaplaning. It is the gentle and careful removal of the peach fuzz and the dead skin cells from the skin’s surface with the help of a scalpel. It is a procedure performed by professionals and is always followed by a dose of topical nutrition, like hyaluronic acid or vitamin c serum. You’ll see amazing results at the end of the whole process almost immediately.
An alternative for this is Face Shaving which you can perform at home without the need to see a professional. Use a good quality Face Razor for Women that stays super gentle on the skin and does the job with as much precision. Check out Bombae GlamUp Razor that gently exfoliates the skin and delivers Korean glass skin.
#2 Care more about a FACE MASK
A great way to boost your skin’s hydration and nutrient levels, but with all that, it is equally important to choose the one that goes well with your skin type. Let’s say you have dry skin, in that case, look for a hydrating Face Mask with ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin. For girls with oily skin, all you need is something that clarifies your skin and reduces the oil levels, so ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide would work for your skin. If you have sensitive skin, look for a mask that is free of harmful chemicals and free of fragrance.
#3 Get some relaxing FACE MASSAGE
The biggest benefit of a face massage other than that soul-pleasing feeling is the improved blood circulation on the skin, reduced puffiness, and increased collagen production. Here’s how you do it yourself at home. Take a small amount of oil or moisturiser and apply it to your face. Massage in circular motion with the help of your fingertips. Start from your forehead and go all the way down to your chin. Focus on areas like your temple, jawline, and cheekbones.
#4 Did you try FACE-STEAMING yet?
An easy-to-do DIY skin treatment that cleanses and nourishes your skin. A simple yet super effective skin treatment that cleanses, and nourishes your skin. It works by expanding the pores of your skin, which improves blood circulation to help release trapped sebum, and all this eventually clears your skin from within. Here’s how you do it. Don’t get too close as you are steaming your face. You need to remember that burns from steam are more damaging than burns from boiling water, so be super careful when steaming your face. Make sure the water is not burning hot if you’re using the towel. Do it once a week and not more than 10 mins to avoid irritating your skin.
#5 Not just breakups, learn how to DEAL WITH BREAKOUTS too
Your skin may get breakouts during different parts of the year, and the worst part is that they happen to appear at the worst time, which is not fair. So, here are a few things you can do to treat them. First, get a spot treatment product that contains benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid to kill bacteria and reduce inflammation levels. Other than that, you can go for a DIY home remedy like a cold compress to reduce inflammation and redness. If the breakout looks severe, don’t do it yourself, see a dermatologist.
#6 Makeup as per SKIN TYPE
Your skin is delicate and it may react differently to every product. So if you have oily skin choose oil-free products that won't clog your pores. As for the girls with dry skin, you need to make sure your skin stays hydrated, so make sure to add hydrating serum or facial oil to your makeup kit. If you have sensitive skin look for words like “skin-friendly” “hypoallergenic” and “fragrance-free” on the back of your makeup products.
For best results, prep your skin for makeup by gently exfoliating it with the help of a razor and also get rid of the peach fuzz.
#7 REMOVE MAKEUP CORRECTLY
Not removing makeup after a long day of wearing heavy makeup can clog your pores, and this eventually leads to breakouts, which is the last thing we want before any party. So, here is how you do it, use a makeup remover that is suitable for your skin type. Simply use a cotton ball or pad with a few drops of oil and gently wipe to remove the makeup. Once you have removed the makeup, wash your face and follow your usual skincare routine.
# 8 Fix your Diet and Sleeping Schedule
Consuming a healthy diet is essential for your overall health and well-being, and that includes your skin too. Try adding fruits and more green leafy veggies to your diet. These are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are essential for healthy skin. Other than that, not getting enough sleep is making your skin look tired, dull, and puffy. Think about it, to get healthy skin all you need to do is sleep on time for a good 7-8 hours, how easy can anything else be?
THAT’S A WRAP
The festive season surely brings the best out in us, we socialise, party, and enjoy to the fullest. Just make sure you drink enough water (3 litres -4 litres) daily. This helps flush toxins out of your body. Post the festive season, it's great if you just let your skin breathe and avoid applying heavy makeup for a few days, this helps rejuvenate and repair your skin.
