When it comes to skincare, we all have differing views on the best way to approach it. As the Winter is well and truly here (dry, cracked skin anyone?!), your focus might be turning towards getting your skin in condition for the warmer months ahead.
So what can you do to better take care of your skin?
Here are some suggestions:
Drink more water
Water is nature's natural detox so it shouldn’t be a surprise that drinking more of it each day can make a big difference to how you look and feel. Water can work wonders for you skin, as it can clear your body of bad toxins. Drinking at least two litres of water a day can be an easy thing to implement into your lifestyle, and make a difference. On top of that, water can actually help with other things such as mood and sleep quality.
Consider the ingredients in some of the products you use
Sometimes we don’t realise that some of the products that we use contain ingredients that might not agree with our skin. Ever wondered why your skin doesn’t feel so great after using a body wash, or why you might start getting a few spots after changing a cream or lotion? It could be down to the ingredients. This is when looking into a Soap Free Body wash or even a different moisturiser that includes different ingredients could make a world of difference to the condition of your skin to your face and your body.
Visit a professional
Sometimes over the counter pimple creams, moisturisers and serums aren't enough to fix whatever is causing your skin condition. If you're finding you're losing the battle towards clear skin, seek professional help! Just make sure you do your research and opt for a clinic that is reputable and can show examples of their work.

You are what you eat
It might be obvious that drinking water can help with skin, but so can the food you eat. Too much junk and sugary treats can cause issues when it comes to acne. Foods like sweet potatoes, broccoli and avocados can work wonders. Turmeric is also a known anti-inflammatory so adding some into your diet can help with redness. A balanced diet will always be a great approach to have, and could really help to give you the glow to your skin that you are after. More foods to try can be found here.
Clean those brushes!
If you've got oil and bacteria build up in your skin, you're transferring it to your makeup brushes every time you use them. Those germs then sit in the bristles and are brushed back onto your skin the next time you apply makeup!
Get yourself a brush cleaner and some gentle brush shampoo and give them a clean! A good brush cleaner will wash and dry your brushes in moments.
