Five Tips for a Flawless Complexion
They say if you have flawless skin and gorgeous hair, you can pull off any look. I always find myself impressed with the 'no makeup' makeup looks on the red carpet. The celebrities look as if they have achieved perfection when it comes to their skin; bright and obviously smooth complexion, wide eyes and tinted lips for color. I do realize that it's all about makeup tricks, however, having a clear and healthy complexion does help in achieving that gorgeous end result. If you have a clear and healthy complexion, makeup will look great on you, and you won't feel the need to overdo it to hide anything. Also, you will be able to achieve a 'no makeup' makeup look with the simplest products.
Here are a few tips to take into consideration to achieve a flawless complexion:
1. You are what you eat
What you intake doesn't just affect your health, it has a severe effect on your complexion. If you constantly go for junk and fried food, eventually that will affect your skin, often leading to break outs. Swap in your fried food for salads and your sodas for plenty of water. Every now and then, drink some detoxing fluids, they will help a lot.
2. Don't ignore facial cleansers
Though you may think washing your face twice a day does the trick, a facial cleanser is a lot more effective. It can remove the dirt in the pores and leave the skin feeling super soft, which is something you cannot achieve on your own.
3. Treat yourself to a face mask or facial
Let's face it, we live in a very polluted world, with dirt and bacteria sinking deep into our pores. A deep facial can really do wonders for dry skin and oily skin. Doing facial masks is a great way to maintain a perfect complexion.
4. Moisturize without clogging
This goes without saying, moisturizing is very important for your complexion especially in the winter. However, you need to leave room for your skin to breathe. Be sure to pick a moisturizer that will not clog your pores.
5. Don't forget about the toners
Though not many people choose not to use toner, it is actually a great way to refresh your skin, especially when you are on-the-go. More importantly, it closes up your pores, reducing bacteria and dirt to accumulate in.
