5. Avoid Smoke
However hard this might seem on you, try as much as possible to stop, or at least, reduce smoking. This one will highly depend on which one comes first for you, between fun and your skin. I would recommend you reduce the number of cigarettes per day to two. Smoking leads to skin infections, wrinkles and even posing an even deadlier threat of contracting skin cancer. Two cigarettes a day is recommendable for someone who is so accustomed to smoking, but if you are in the position to shun the habit altogether, go ahead and do it.
6. Remove Make-Up
Do away with all traces of make-up before you sleep. This could do you good as it ensures the skin pores are not blocked. Bacteria breeds in poorly ventilated places and clogged skin pores could provide a perfect site Infectious bacteria would definitely trigger contracting a skin infection.
Use light cotton to rub off make-up and wash your face with clean water treated with a disinfectant.
7. Apply Sunscreen
Ageing signs on your face and other exposed areas of your skin are a result of UV rays from the sun and since we cannot avoid this completely, sunscreen could be the only option you have to save your day.
8. Be Careful With Scrubs
Skin scrubs may help in removing dirt, oil and make-up that might clog pores. However, they have some serious side effects in the form of microscopic scars that could lead to irritation on sensitive skin. Another side-effect of these products is that they leave the skin too dry causing an uncomfortable feeling. Natural scrubs are recommended for results without side-effects.
All of these tips are real and guarantee you a positive result within a time as short as one week. Some skins, though, react faster to treatments than others. You should therefore be patient once you try on any of the above tips.
