Taking care of our skin can seem like an overwhelming task at times, with out-of-the-blue breakouts, scary skincare myths, and an abundance of products we are told we need, to fix problems we never knew we had. Here DCL Skincare breaks down five simple steps you can follow to achieve the clear, glowing complexion of your dreams...
Hydrate – Drinking plenty of water is an imperative part of the quest for a picture-perfect appearance. Consuming at least eight glasses of water a day will rid the body of toxins and give you a healthy, radiant glow.
Exfoliate – A build-up of dead skin cells and blocked pores can leave skin looking dull and can cause breakouts. Regular exfoliation with a gentle facial scrub will keep skin smooth and soft – it will also reduce breakouts by keeping pores free of excess acne-causing sebum.
Remove your makeup – Sleeping in your makeup is a one-way ticket to bad skin days – keeping makeup on overnight can clog up pores, dried mascara can damage your lashes and you can even cause inflammation of the delicate eye area. Tip: keep moisturising makeup wipes next to your bed for any late-night skincare emergencies; just make sure to give your skin a deep clean the following morning.
Clean your brushes – Your beauty tools can accumulate dirt and bacteria over time which can then lead to breakouts. Wash your makeup brushes regularly with baby shampoo or brush cleanser to remove germs and keep bad skin at bay.
Skincare saviours – Invest in quality skincare to target blemishes and control breakouts – DCL Clear Skin Anti-Blemish Hydrator is the perfect example. Formulated with 2% salicylic acid and lactic acid, it helps clear existing blemishes and prevent future breakouts, plus the Vitamin C evens out skin tone, and diminishes the appearance of dark spots & acne scars.
