Did you know that the facial skin’s top layer is more delicate than the rest of the body? That makes it more prone to damage and sensitivity than other body parts. And this is why the face often needs the right skincare routine to promote youth, health, and glow, especially in Miami. The weather here is often hot and humid, which often leaves skin sweaty and pores clogged. You may have already tried several beauty tips, tricks, hacks, and skincare products that haven’t yielded much results but don’t be discouraged.
Here are some simple beauty tips that actually work.
Wash your face with lukewarm water
It’s common to wash your face at least twice daily – when you wake up and before bed. But experts also suggest doing this three times daily with lukewarm or moderately warm water to improve your facial skin’s appearance. You can even do this anytime you sweat during the day – for example, after hitting the gym, running, or engaging in intense physical activity. Lukewarm water will work with your cleanser to remove bacteria and dirt from your skin without stripping essential oils or drying your face.
Avoid touching your face
You’ll be surprised how many breakouts and reactions you’ll avoid if only you stop touching your face. You’ve probably heard it said several times but aren’t sure why. Touching your face can trigger or worsen acne, making it extremely difficult to treat. You could also end up clogging your pores, which leads to more skin reactions. But that’s not all. Your hands usually pick up many bacteria, germs, and dirt daily. So, the more often you touch your face, the more you spread these agents on your face, increasing your risk of infections. You might also disrupt your skin’s natural balance with too much touching, causing inflammation, so keep this in mind.
Use Clean Skincare Products
Body products you use every day should make a difference in your skin and support your health and wellness. I personally use ethically made products that are committed to formulating with clean, compatible, and effective ingredients that are safe for the skin. My favorite go-to brand is Necessaire. The Body Retinol is one of my top products because it is an overnight treatment concentrate to help erase crepiness, repair signs of aging and smooth skin.
Try to reach for natural Beauty & Wellness products that are free of sulfates, phthalates, parabens, petrochemicals, mineral oil, silicone and talc. It’s also important that they are also free of fragrance. It’s a beauty tip that actually works because your skin will soak natural products more effectively!
Only use high-quality body jewelry
If you love wearing body jewelry or facial piercings, you must invest only in high-quality products. Only visit a trusted professional to get your facial piercing done. Your artist should only use surgical-grade stainless steel needles to avoid adverse reactions on your skin. Also, purchase body jewelry or facial piercings made with materials that will not cause infections or reactions. Avoid products that contain nickel, whether it’s an eyebrow ring, a pair of labret studs, or ear adornments. And be sure to purchase all your cute industrial piercing jewelry from a reputable seller.
Don’t forget about hydration
A crucial beauty tip for the face is to keep your skin hydrated. Experts recommend drinking six glasses of water daily to keep your skin plump while maintaining a youthful appearance, so keep this in mind. Hydration also improves skin elasticity, warding off or reducing wrinkling and sagging under the eyes and around the cheek region. But don’t forget to incorporate a hydrating moisturizer into your daily skincare routine. Skin care products that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin can attract and retain moisture in the skin. Doing this will prevent dryness, fine lines, and dullness, so feel free to consider this.
