Use the correct cleanser
The most important thing when looking for new products is to listen to your skin. You need to experiment and see which one works for you best.
Don’t forget to moisturise
Lack of moisture can sometimes lead to acne. So, the best times to moisturise is right after you get out of the shower and right before you go to bed.
Always use sun protection
Don’t forget to layer up with SPF every time you step out. In the long run, lack of sun protection can cause dullness, dryness, aging and pigmentation
Hydration is an essential for glowing skin. To avoid dry, itchy and dull skin hydrate yourself with water and electrolytes.
Add a vitamin C serum you to your morning routine. Additionally, vitamin C creams can help protect your skin from sun damage and can give you a brighter, glowing complexion over time.
Exfoliate your skin and lips
Exfoliating once a week helps slough off dead skin cells, but over-exfoliation can cause your skin to react with excess oil production or breakouts. Exfoliation of the lips is equally important as it leads to softer, smoother lips.
Cool water cleanse
Try and use lukewarm or cold water when washing your face. Hot water can open your pores and can sometimes be too intense for your skin.

Wash your mask
Keeping in mind the new normal, don’t forget to wash your mask every time you wear one.
Keep makeup brushes clean
Let’s not forget one major skincare tip to keep in mind for healthy skin: Clean make-up brushes. To fight infection and clogged pores, wash your concealer and foundation brushes once a week. For brushes you use around your eyes, once a month is fine.
Here’s how: Put a drop of a mild shampoo into the palm of your hand. Wet the bristles with lukewarm water. Then, massage the bristles into your palm to distribute the shampoo into the brush. Avoid getting the metal part of the brush wet/or the base of the brush hairs because the glue could soften and the bristles could fall out. Rinse the shampoo out and squeeze out the water with a towel. Lay the brushes on their side with the bristles hanging off the edge of the counter to dry.
