  1. Golden rule of skin care is CSM- Cleansing-moisturizing -sunscreen. Any type of skin, dry, oily, sensitive, non-sensitive, and dead skin, this alone is enough to have a healthy skin.
  2. Exfoliate once a week to remove dead cells on the face. Dead cells remain in the outermost part of the skin giving it a dull appearance.
  3. Apply sunscreen with SPF of at least 15 that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Since a lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems, you have to protect your skin from the sun. Make sure the label reads ‘noncomedogenic’ or ‘nonacnegenic’ so that the product does not tend to block pores.

  8. Make sure you always remove your makeup before sleeping. The skin needs to breathe overnight and makeup prevents that, as leaving it on overnight clogs the pores which may cause blemishes and/or blackheads
  9. Wash your face with warm water, three times a day and gently massage your face in circular motions, ensuring that the cleanser contains alpha hydroxyl acid or beta hydroxyl acid. This will provide relief from acne and give a clear skin otherwise. Stop playing with the pimples, this is very important to prevent pigmentation and scars.
  10. Take out time for yourself, and try to avoid stress as much as possible. Have you ever noticed that when you are stressed, you tend to break out more? This is because stress causes your body to produce cortisol and other hormones, making the skin more oily. Practice stress management techniques like breathing exercises, yoga and meditation.
