#CLEARSKIN2019: How to Achieve your 2019 Clear Skin Goals


It's that time of the year again! You find yourself listing down New Year's resolutions, hoping this time around next year, you will have accomplished at least half of them. On that first bullet is something you're totally crossing your fingers for, yup, clear skin. That's all you've ever wanted since you can only remember.

Perhaps, 2019 will finally be your lucky year, but better and healthier skin requires more than just luck. In fact, it entails a lot of dos and don'ts that many people fail to follow. But let's not talk about them; let's talk about you. The real question is, are YOU willing to do everything it takes to achieve that #ClearSkin2019 goals? Then here are a few tips you might want to keep in mind from a beauty and skincare junkie!

DO: CLEANSE YOUR FACE TWICE A DAY

Cleansing your face in the morning will wash away excessive oil that your skin has produced overnight. This is important to keep the skin's moisture at its normal level. At night after school or work, it's also crucial that you cleanse your face especially if you wear makeup. The debris, pollution, dirt, oil, and other unwanted stuff on the face can lead to clogged pores and acne breakouts if not properly removed.

So, do facial cleansing twice a day. Nothing more, nothing less. That's how it works for me, at least. Based on my experience, over-cleansing is the culprit for my clogged pores. When I took my cleansing a notch lower, I noticed a significant improvement on my skin.

DON'T: EXPOSE YOURSELF TOO MUCH TO THE SUN

The skin needs protection from the sun, always. Not only does it contribute to aging but also makes you at risk of skin cancer. And even when you slather on sun screen with the highest SPFs, it can only do so much. That's why the safest thing to do is to stay away from the sun. It may be inevitable, yes. So in addition to that sun screen, you might want to bring an umbrella anywhere you go.

DO: STAY HYDRATED

Drinking eight glasses of water per day for a healthier body isn't just a myth. It's a must! Water provides hydration to the body cells, and in case you didn't know, skin is a body organ which means it is made up of cells. And skin cells, like any other body cells, need water to keep hydrated. When the skin cells aren't sufficiently hydrated inside, it definitely shows on the outside, leaving you with noticeable signs of aging.

DON'T: TOUCH YOUR FACE

Touching the face is one of the common mistakes most of us are guilty of doing. Well, don't. Our hands are filled with germs and bacteria that aren't visible to the naked eyes. You just don't want these bacteria to be transferred and spread on to your face because that is definitely a sure gateway to breakouts.

DO: EXFOLIATE

Exfoliate your skin at least two to three times per week. It is a beneficial step to get rid of the dead skin cells, allowing your pores to breathe and revealing a better and brighter skin.

DON'T: LET YOUR PHONE TOUCH YOUR FACE

When taking calls, use earphones as much as possible. Our phones are homes for countless of bacteria for obvious reasons. But ICYMI, just think about the last time you washed your phone. You never did, did you? Yeah, that's what I thought.

DO: PAMPER YOURSELF WITH CLAY MASK

Clay mask has gotten pretty popular recently, and I can attest as to why! I just love how this leaves my pores feeling cleaner and my skin feeling smoother every time I use it. There's not much that I can say about clay masks, but just a tip - not all of them will work for you. The right clay mask will bring you joy, but the wrong ones will bring you breakouts. So always be wary, and it's better to use samples first before actually buying a full tub.

DON'T: ALWAYS RELY ON THE INTERNET

Ironic, isn't it? How you're reading this on your phone or laptop and yet, I'm telling you not to rely on the internet. Hey, I'm not saying all information found on the internet are fraud. It's just sometimes, what we post here are just based on our experience and may not work exactly the same for you. That's why your safest bet is to consult a licensed dermatologist who can actually provide you with medical based examination and knows what's the best treatment for your skin. It may cost some bucks, but at least you're on the safe side.
