Exfoliation is a step most people skip in their weekly skincare routine, but proper exfoliation can make a significant difference in the appearance of your skin. In fact, men often exfoliate more than women, perhaps because they do it when they shave. Exfoliating your skin with brown sugar or coconut oil is a great way to remove dead skin and refresh your complexion. White refined sugar mixed with a cleanser also works as a scrub.
If you have enlarged pores, consider applying an apple peel mask to combat this problem. It contains antioxidants and helps brighten the complexion. Apply the peel before taking a bath or shower. Allow the mask to dry for about ten minutes and then rinse off. This natural skin treatment is safe for all skin types. If you don’t have access to apple peels, you can always make an apple peel paste out of half a banana, a teaspoon of honey, and a few drops of rose water. Leave it on for half an hour or until it dries.
Avoid stress. Managing stress will prevent or worsen many skin conditions. Stress causes sensitivity and breakouts. To alleviate stress, try to find some Zen in your life. Find time for relaxing activities that will help you release stress and get more oxygen flowing to your skin. In addition to a daily skin care routine, try investing in some self-care products. Don’t forget about essential products, such as lip balm, hand cream, and cuticle oil.
