Tips to Get Clear Skin - Dian Sastro Edition

dian1. Make sure you wash your pillow case at least once a week. Dirty pillow cases breed bacteria, which can lead to pimples.

2. Do not venture in areas with heavy, greasy air such as restaurant or fast food kitchens and even subway tunnels.

3. Drink at least one and half liters of water everyday as it keeps your skin hydrated and healthy.

4. Indulge in any sweat inducing activity for at least 30 minutes a day, such as running, dancing, sports, aerobics, etc. Sweating unclogs your pores and enhances your complexion.

5. Change sweaty clothes as soon as possible, drying off your body with a clean towel.

6. Wash your face twice a day, ideally once in the morning and once at night. Use a mild cleanser, which is gentle on your acne and skin in general.

7. If your skin is oily, consider adding a toner to your routine. However, avoid astringents as they can actually make your skin worse.

8. Moisturize your skin daily by oil-free moisturizer, formulated specially for the face. Avoid heavy and thick creams.

9. Exfoliate your skin once a week for normal skin and 2-3 times a week for oily skin. This will reduce black heads, thereby refreshing it.

10. Apply a relaxing mask once a week to give skin extra vitality.
11. Use standard cosmetics, which suit your skin. While applying foundation, use a clean applicator or your fingers to blend it.

12. Make sure you remove your make up and apply a night cream while going to bed in the night. This will enable your skin to breathe.
