Skin cleansing Tips
Drink 8-12 glass of water a day as this is good for healthy skin.
complexion bars look like soap, but they are actually mild cleansers in bar form. Look for individual formulas targeting oily, normal or dry complexion.
Follow the skin cleansing routine regularly
Sebum production speeds up in the summer which contributes to grimy summer skin. You may want to sneak in an extra daily cleansing during warm weather.
Do not spend money on expensive skin cleansers, because a cleanser is going to be on your skin for only a few seconds before being rinsed away. Save your beauty cash for moisturizers, sunscreens, intensive treatments and other products that will sit on your skin for a while.
