Sleep, the Unacknowledged Skin Booster

Did you know that sleeping can be one of the best things in your beauty arsenal? It might not be packaged in a fancy bottle or have a label that promises to solve all your skin problems, but getting enough sleep is vital for healthy, beautiful skin. It's the cheapest, most accessible skincare tip that many people overlook. While we sleep, our bodies intensively repair and restore themselves, and our skin is no exception. The levels of certain hormones drop off while we sleep, allowing cells to regenerate and combat inflammation. So, be sure to score eight solid hours each night, your skin will thank you for it!

Diet, the Foundation of Beauty

Let me tell you that beauty, true beauty, emerges from the inside out. What we put into our bodies inevitably reflects on our skin. Consuming a diet full of antioxidants, healthy fats, water, and various essential nutrients helps maintain a healthy glow and prevents your skin from potential damages. Dare to eat the rainbow, and by that, I mean include various colorful fruits and veggies in your diet. These are jam-packed with antioxidants, plus they add a bit of color to your Instagram food posts. See? Double win! Oh, remember to hydrate, folks. Water is your skin's best friend. Drink it, bathe in it, obsessed over it. Your skin will love you for it!

A Natural Touch: DIY Skincare

Now let's delve into the realm of DIY skincare. A bit of an adventurer, are we? That’s alright! I myself have leapt into the world of homemade face masks. Seriously, there's a certain level of satisfaction that comes from understanding what's going into your skincare products. Plus, most of them double as a snack if you get peckish (pretty sure you shouldn't eat store-bought masks)! Did you know that honey has antibacterial properties and can help soothe your skin? Or that oats make an excellent gentle exfoliant? In the maze of chemicals that many skincare products house, returning to the basics can feel wholesome and rewarding.

Up Your Hygiene Game

Here's an overlooked tip: clean your stuff! It's simple but mostly forgotten. Regularly clean and disinfect your phone, your glasses, and anything you frequently touch and then touch your face. More often than not, we're letting bacteria thrive on our most used items, only to transfer it to our skin. Oh, and not forgetting our pillowcases. If you're not changing and washing them at least once a week, you're building a bacteria paradise. Frightening right? So pull up your socks and sanitize away!

Rethinking your Routine with the Double Cleansing Method

Have you ever tried double-cleansing? It comes originally from the Korean skincare universe, which boasts arguably the most diligent and detailed skincare routines on the planet. The idea is to use an oil-based cleanser first, to remove sebum and oil-based makeup, then follow that with a water-based cleanser to clean away residual impurities. Trust me, your skin gets squeaky-clean without feeling stripped. My darling Noelle and I have made it a night-time bonding routine, and it's thoroughly therapeutic!

Kickstart Your Day with Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Have you ever heard of lymphatic drainage massage for the face? If you haven't, you're greatly missing out. It's a popular trend in the beauty world that you can totally do at home. This gentle massage technique aims to stimulate the lymphatic system, remove waste and toxins from bodily tissues, and boost circulation in your skin. All you need are your fingers and a dollop of your favorite face oil. Do it in the morning, and you'll see a difference in how de-puffed and fresh your skin looks. Plus, it feels so good!

Embrace the Sun: But with SPF!

Last, but the opposite of least: the Sun. Embrace it, but with caution. SPF is your forever non-negotiable, period. I know, we all love a golden tan, and sunbathing sessions are therapeutic, but sun damage is real, and it's not pretty. SPF shields your skin from harmful UV rays that can cause skin aging, pigmentation, and worse, skin cancer. Wear SPF 30 or higher daily, yes, even when it's cloudy, because UV rays don't take days off! SPF is the backbone of skincare. My little champ Linus learnt it the hard way when his refusal of sunscreen led to a lobster-like appearance after a school picnic. Poor kid! SPF folks, SPF.

If you want to keep your skin at its healthiest and most radiant, these rare and beautiful skincare tips will definitely deliver. Remember, your skin is as unique as you are, so feel free to mix and adapt these tips to your specific needs. Happy glowing!
