5 tips for healthy, glowing skin!
Skin that's flawless, healthy, and glowing isn’t out of reach! It’s something that can be achieved by sticking to the basics of skincare and choosing a healthy lifestyle. Kickstart your journey to healthy, glowing skin with these 5 tips:
Cleansing is of basic importance when it comes to a good skin care routine. We have to make sure that all the dirt, make up, oils, impurities, and other types of enviromental pollutants are removed from the skin at the end of the day to reduce the chance of breakouts.
Cleansing your face should be done at least twice a day since the skin creates natural oils throughout the day. Depending on your skin type, there are various types of facial cleansers that can remove impurities without stripping or drying your skin.

Moisturizers keep your skin hydrated, supple, softer, and healthier looking. Using the appropriate moisturizer regularly can soothe your skin and help maintain its balance.
It’s a good idea to moisturize right after cleansing, a shower/bath, shaving, or exfoliation. Apply every day, morning and evening, and give it time to soak into your skin.

You may have heard this countless of times: exposure from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause many types of skin damage. That is why using skin care products that offer UV protection is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful. And yes, melanated skin needs sunscreen too!
It is important to use sunscreen daily and reapply regularly whenever you're outdoors for an extended period of time. It's also helpful to wear protective sun clothing or stay indoors, when you can, during the time when the sun is as its most intense (between 9AM - 3PM).

4. Glow from the inside out with a healthy lifestyle
It's not really a stretch to say that a clear complexion begins with a healthy diet. Regular skincare can only go skin deep so a healthy diet can both help you look and feel your best, inside and out. Consume plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and keep yourself hydrated.
Managing stress is also another great factor in keeping your skin healthy since uncontrolled stress can lead to a more sensitive skin, trigger acne breakouts, and other skin problems. Get plenty of sleep, and set aside some time to do the things that you enjoy. A healthy mind and lifestyle can make your skin look clear and radiant.
5. Know when to reach out to a dermatologist
No matter the numerous skin care tips or beauty hacks that we find on Beyonce's internet, there may be skin conditions or issues that can only be resolved by the help of a professional. Dermatologists can help you understand your skin and what it needs to look and feel its best.
The goal isn't "perfect, pore less skin", we all have flaws and blemishes. The goal is to love the skin we're in!
