Remove your makeup before bed
Do not compromise with your skin if you want a healthy body. Always remove your makeup properly before bed.

Even leaving on your eye makeup can cause you eye irritation and broken lashes. So don’t leave your makeup on and sleep off. If you’re too tired on nights, use at least pre-saturated cleansing cloths before you crash on the bed.
Apply sunscreen daily
Direct sun exposure for a very long time can cause skin cancer. Small amounts of daily sun produce vitamin D in the body and are beneficial. But too much sun rays will extremely harm your skin. Don’t forget to use sunscreen contained with zinc or titanium dioxide and to wear your sunglasses to protect your beautiful eyes. Make a habit of having a sunscreen always with you. Whenever you wash your face, apply the cream immediately. Don’t stop using, if it’s a rainy day.
Exfoliate your skin
Everyday your body produces dead skill cells and Dead skin cells equal to dull skin. And by not getting rid of them, you’re damaging your own skin. Exfoliation removes that dry and dead skin cells and helps preventing many skin problems as well as it also increases blood circulation, which consecutively brings you a healthy and glowing skin. Make a habit to exfoliate your body as you do your facial exfoliation. Use a mild body scrub about twice a week. You can also try daily dry-body brushing before showering.
Pick a loofah or brush and buff your skin in circular motions. But do not scrub too hard. Start off with the hard soles of your feet, and then work upward on legs, front and back. Pay special attention to your upper arms and hips and backs of the thighs. Apply a good moisturizer to hydrate the skin and do not expose your exfoliated skin to UV rays, sun, and sunbed frequently.
Stop picking at pimples
Most of us have a bad habit of poking pimples on our face. But we forget picking and nudging those pimples can cause scarring and infection. Sometimes skin doesn’t heal properly. Dermatologist Dr. Lisa Kellett of DLK on Avenue in Toronto, “It’s important to note that acne scarring is actually caused by picking and not the acne itself”. So keep your hands off from your skin and get a clearer skin.
Stop shampooing every day
Some women have weird habit of shampooing every day. They just don’t feel clean if they don’t shampoo daily. But washing your hair too frequently drains the natural oil from your scalp make hair shiny and manageable naturally. It makes your hair dry and frizzy and tends to split ends. So stop washing your hair every day, instead try shampooing every other day. High-profile Canadian hairstylist Anthony suggests “If hair is flat, run damp hands through it and blow-dry on low to bring back volume. It helps if you don’t go wild on hairspray and gel the first day.” You can also try a “dry” shampoo.
Embrace a fuller brow
One of the biggest beauty mistakes sometimes you do is you go wild with the tweezers-too-thin brows. It really makes you look aged. You can think of compensating it with makeup but it will never give you the satisfaction of having full natural brows. Thinning eyebrow will lead you to end up a look that doesn’t suit you or to look you like a clown. You should learn about your face structure and a suitable eyebrow shape. So embrace your natural brows and keep them groomed.
Opt for natural skin products.
Most of the skincare products found in market contain harsh and harmful chemicals. So make sure the ingredients used in them are safe, when choosing moisturizers or makeup. Alternatively you can pick natural ingredients lying around home for your skin care. Natural ways may take time but they won’t harm your skin permanently.
Regular exercise definitely helps you stay younger, gives you more vigor and keeps you in shape. But new research from McMaster University suggests that endurance exercise also help to fight with the signs of aging, such as balding, grey hair and thinning skin. Endurance exercise is aerobic activity. You can do brisk walking, running or cycling as a regular exercise. According to the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology It will improve cardio-respiratory fitness. The longer you can do aerobic exercise, the more endurance you have. Even you can perform the “downward dog” yoga pose, getting on the floor on your hands and knees and then straightening your legs. So daily exercise will help increasing oxygen circulation in blood and releasing toxins through sweat. In return you will get clearer, firmer skin. And don’t remember to smile. It’s the best exercise for your face.
