HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN WITHOUT PRODUCTS
In a World full of chemicals and synthetic products we decided to dive on in and discuss how one can achieve and maintain healthy acne free skin without the use of nonorganic products!!
Change Your Bed Sheets Weekly
Although this is a common rule of thumb, many experts recommend weekly washings. This is because your sheets can accumulate a lot of stuff you can't see: thousands of dead skin cells, dust mites, and even fecal matter...OH NO!!
Take Essential Fatty Acids
Key elements in a natural skin care diet, essential fatty acids like omega-3s and omega-6s are the building blocks of healthy cell membranes. These polyunsaturated fats also help produce the skin's natural oil barrier, critical in keeping skin hydrated, plumper, and younger looking.
Ice Your Skin Every Morning & Night
Icing constricts the blood vessels is your face, which can lessen the appearance of pores and wrinkles and make you look lighter, brighter and more radiant overall.
Monitor your Sun intake
Exposure to natural sunlight, specifically solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation contributes to lifetime risks of skin cancer, eye disease, and diseases associated with vitamin D insufficiency. Improved knowledge of personal sun exposure patterns can inform public health policy; and help target high-risk population groups
Sleep on Satin or Silk pillowcase
Sleeping on a Satin or Silk pillowcase may help retain your skin's moisture. If you have dry skin, a satin or silk pillowcase may help. Preferably Satin. As Cheung explains, satin isn't as drying as cotton, so it makes it easier to maintain the skin's hydration.
Eat Your Daily Serving of Fruits and Veggies
Fruit and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help to protect skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals, smoking, pollution and sunlight can cause wrinkling and age spots. Eat a rainbow of colourful fruit and vegetables and aim for at least five portions a day.
Clean and Disinfect Your Makeup Brushes Weekly
Clean brushes apply makeup better. Even the best makeup can become streaky and patchy when applied with a dirty brush. Clean bristles will assure a smoother application. Regular cleaning keeps bristles soft, and that means they're less irritating to your skin.
DON'T Pick or Touch Your Skin/Pimples
Aside from making an even worse-looking sore, breaking the skin barrier allows more bacteria to enter, which can lead to infection. The best case scenario is that the wound will scab and heal without leaving a mark.
Wash Your Face with Luke Warm Water
Lukewarm water can help ensure that your facial cleanser gets the right amount of foaming action, removes enough dirt from the surface of your skin, and balances your natural skin oils appropriately.
