I am not a genius when it comes to choosing the best skin products. I always experiment hoping to find a perfect match. In the past, I have shared the products I use on a daily basis and I still look out for newer ones to try. I have a very oily skin and during the summer and in warm tropical areas, it becomes very visible. Over the years, I have learnt some tips to maintain a healthy skin. The following usually work for me:
- Drink up: I haven’t been a huge fan of soda, coffee etc as such, I always
carry a bottle of water with me. At work, this helps me remain hydrated so
please, drink up. Water is great for your skin.
- SPF: Years ago, my mom taught me the importance of always applying SPF
moisturizers. Over the years, I have been using Neutrogena SPF 15 moisturizer
and it has been great for my skin. I also heard great reviews about La Mer (a
little pricey)…if you have used it, what do you think?
- Exercise: Exercising for me is to stay fit while maintaining good
health. After having my baby, I have tried to maintain a three days exercise
schedule which includes running, cardio and taking long walks.
- Diet: Eating healthy reflects heavily on my skin. I don’t obsess about
calorie counts neither am I a food junkie. I try to include veggies and fruits
in my daily meal plan. Lately, I have been eating lots of bananas, broccoli and
mangoes. I craved mangoes a lot during my pregnancy and I am surprised that I
still like it.
- Rest: This might be hard for many folks including my fellow working moms.
However, a good sleep pattern is important for skin health. The more rested I
am, the healthier my skin appears to be. I have observed that on days when I am
so busy, stressed out with little sleep, my skin starts breaking out. I try as
much as possible to rest so please get your beauty sleep!
