Skin Care Tips

cleanse your skin

In this article, I’m going to tell you how to rejuvenate and take care of your skin. I’m going to give you a very in-depth tutorial on how to rejuvenate your skin, and these are the tips that I personally use myself, so I know this works. It is really simple.

So, the first one and the most important is to cleanse your skin, to clean it. The key to rejuvenation is making sure that your skin is clean, so it can absorb all the good essential products that you’re putting on it. You want to make sure that any cleanser that you’re using is effective, especially if you’re someone that’s wearing a lot of makeup or you have waterproof mascara. I know this is unconventional to what you guys hear but try using cleansing oils instead of facial soaps or any harsh chemical soaps that are out there on the market. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to spend a lot of money. You can go as simple as extra-virgin olive oil, and this is honestly my favorite makeup remover and also a homemade cleanser. It’s so homemade; you can just literally use it from the bottle. If you’re going to be using an extra virgin olive oil, you want to find one that’s certified organic, especially if you’re putting it on your face. You don’t want to use something that is low quality. So, find a certified organic extra virgin olive oil to apply on your face. It’s going to melt down the makeup; it’s going to be easy to remove, and also it’s going to help nourish the skin too. Just because it doesn’t strip away the natural oils that are already on my face, but it helps break down the products at the same time without irritating my skin.

For those, who are worried about like acne prone skin, just because you’re using oil on the skin does not mean it’s going to make it any more oily. In fact, it’s actually going to help nourish the skin and keep it from getting more irritated. So, instead of using any harsh chemicals, look for a product that is more organic, has less alcohol, less parabens, and find something that is more gentle on the skin. This is why I recommend using oils on the skin when it comes to cleaning and removing any makeup.

And I know there’s going to be nights when you’re going to be super lazy when it comes to removing makeup. However, if you find time to brush your teeth, you can definitely find time to remove the makeup. So, just invest in a good makeup remover. What I like about cleansing wipes is that it doesn’t feel like a makeup remover where once you remove the makeup, your skin feels dry. There’s added moisturizer in here, and it feels more hydrating when you’re removing the makeup instead of just stripping everything dry. So, whenever I’m feeling lazy, cleansing wipes are my go-to makeup remover.

Step number two is to treat your skin. And there are different ways you can treat it. One of my favorite ways to treat the skin is to use a clay mask. Ever since I’ve been using this, I’ve noticed that my pore size decreased dramatically. It’s amazing. It actually works. Clay mask is an excellent way to clean out any impurities and toxins from your skin. What it does that it draws it all out and it removes it, and it brings it to the top of the skin so that you can just rinse it right away. Find a clay mask that works really well for you. You can find really good ones at Whole Foods, I know there’s a lot of really good natural ones that you can use. And also the old-fashioned trick that I used when I was in college – unscented kitty litter. I know that sounds crazy. I have a cat, so I know how crazy that sounds. But a lot of the times when you look at the ingredients of unscented kitty litter, especially organic unscented kitty litter, it’s really just bentonite clay. And bentonite clay is found in expensive or very well made clay masks that you can find on the market. It’s crazy. And what you do is you take the powder of the kitty litter, you wet it, and then you apply it on your face just like a clay mask, and you rinse it off.
