7 Ways to Take Care of Your Skin Without Products

1. Limit your time in the sun

Use sunscreen, but play hide-and-seek. Sunlight causes 90% of skin ageing, especially for lighter skin, and also increases the risk of skin cancer. That's a big amount, so avoid the sun or seek cover while hanging out.

2. Sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase

Although you can't push wrinkles into your skin, you may induce them while sleeping! Side sleepers may smoosh their faces into their pillows, causing skin-fabric friction.

3. Drink water

Drinking water improves all bodily systems but doesn't moisturise the skin. It helps the liver eliminate toxins, lowers puffiness, improves kidney function (which lightens dark circles), and may benefit psoriasis and eczema.

4. Opting out of sugar

Sometimes the skin takes a while to catch up to how we felt or what we ate last week. If your energy source is primarily added sugar and refined carbohydrates, you might start seeing the effects of that on your skin.

5. Don t pick and don t touch your face

Squeezing a pimple may be enticing, but it might cause more long-term skin damage. Acne mechanica is produced by friction from touching the skin forcing oil and germs back into the pore.

6. Shower and wash your face with lukewarm water (not hot!)

Sebum (oil) in our skin has a wax-like consistency and using hot water to wash our face or shower with essentially melts the oil stripping the skin of much-needed moisture.

7. Wash your makeup brushes

Makeup brushes collect germs, oil, dust, and perspiration, plus old makeup. Infrequent cleaning leaves garbage on your face during makeup application. Acne, irritation, and blocked pores might result.
