Four Tips to Ensure Clean and Smooth Skin

February 25, 2019
Exfoliating, cleansing, toning, and moisturizing your skin... These things are very simple to do and will help ensure clean and smooth skin.

Keeping your skin clean and smooth doesn’t require great sacrifices, but it does require perseverance. For example, if you know that you should take off your makeup before bed every night, it’s useless if you only do it two or three times a week.

To ensure clean and smooth skin, you have to do it every day, no excuses. Many people are too lazy to follow a skin care routine to keep their skin healthy. However, this only damages the skin.

In this article, we’ll take a look at some tips that will help you if you stick to them.

Four Tips to Ensure Clean and Smooth Skin

1. Exfoliate your skin

Exfoliation is the first step to clean and smooth skin.

You may clean your skin with a good product, but you may not exfoliate either because you’re not used to doing it or because you haven’t found one that suits your needs. However, you should exfoliate at least every two weeks since exfoliation removes dead skin cells and leaves the skin clean and smooth.

You don’t need to buy a specific product to exfoliate your skin, although you do have three options to choose from:

  • Exfoliating cleansers: You can find them in any grocery or drug store. They clean and exfoliate the skin with their tiny granules. There are exfoliating cleansers for all skin types.
  • Homemade exfoliant: You can make your own homemade exfoliant with natural ingredients such as sugar and honey.
  • Facial cleansing brush: These brushes cleanse the face and exfoliate it at the same time. You don’t need to buy a specific product because your usual facial soap will suffice.

2. Don’t forget to clean your skin

We recommend you wash your skin at least once a day if you’re too lazy to do it both at night and in the mornings.

Use a soft product such as a cleansing gel or facial wash. You can use micellar water if you have sensitive skin.

You should never go to bed without cleaning your skin! This is very essential, especially if you applied sunscreen, touched your face a lot, or used makeup.

This will ensure clean and smooth skin.

3. Use a toner

Toners improve the skin’s appearance.

Although you may believe that using a toner isn’t important, it’s actually quite the opposite. Toners refresh your skin and prepare it for the next treatments.

In addition, toners close your pores, which keeps them from filling with dirt. Thus, they help prevent difficult-to-remove blackheads.

You can use a commercial toner, although you can also make your own at home.

4. Always moisturize your skin

Moisturizing is essential, no matter your skin type. This is because it ensures luminous and clear skin.

You can use the following products to moisturize your skin:

  • Face oils: Some people apply face oils before moisturizing. These oils often have specific purposes (reduce the appearance of spots, remove wrinkles, make the skin look luminous, etc.) and don’t make skin oily.
  • Moisturizer: Moisturizer keeps the skin moist and caters to its needs. If you have oily skin, you should never apply a moisturizer for dry skin because your skin will look dirty and oily.
  • Sunscreen: Always apply sunscreen, no matter the season of the year. There are many amazing face sunscreens on the market that don’t make your face oily.
