To achieve healthy skin, you need to take care of your skin inside-out. It is not only about choosing the right skincare, but it is also about practicing healthy lifestyle and watching what you eat for your skin.
These are 4 important things you need to know to achieve healthy skin.
1. Healthy lifestyle
Practicing healthy lifestyle such as getting enough sleep, eating nutritious food, and exercising regularly can help your skin to maintain its health.
Getting enough time to rest or sleep can give your skin a chance to rest and regulate its regeneration cycle. Nutritious food which is rich of vitamin, mineral, protein, and good-fat will help your skin looking healthy and glowing. Doing exercise regularly with help regulating the blood circulation so it can deliver the nutrition which is needed by your skin.
2. Skin type
Before building your skincare routine, you need to know your skin type first. This will help you choosing the right skincare.
Commonly there are 4 skin types – dry, oily, combination and normal. Dry skin has a rough texture, can feel tight and look dull due to lack of water. Oily skin has visible pores due to overproduced sebum. Combination skin usually looks oily on T-zone but looks dry on cheeks area. Normal skin has fine pores and well-balanced water and sebum – the skin is not too oily nor too dry.
3. Skincare routine
You don’t necessarily need a complicated skincare routine, instead build the right one for your skin. Skincare routine should include cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting your skin.
Cleanse your skin at least twice a day. Choose a gentle cleanser with no excessive foam and added perfume. Use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser which is suitable for dry, acne-prone, and sensitive skin. To cleanse your oily skin, you can use Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser.
Moisturize your skin right after you cleanse it. Use moisturizer with light formula and without added fragrance. Choose Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion or Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for your dry skin. If you have oily and acne-prone skin, you can use Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. It is also suitable for sensitive skin.
Protect your skin against the ultraviolet radiation to avoid premature aging and skin cancer risk. Apply Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer as sunscreen to your combination, oily, sensitive, or acne-prone skin. You can also use Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50 which is suitable for any skin type to protect your skin against the UVA and UVB rays.
4. Positive thinking
High level of stress can disturb your skin hormone and cause acne or allergy. Staying positive and keeping a calm mind will vision your skin to be calm, too. Having a skin-sharing-session between besties is also help you to find the right skincare product or routine.
