Inexpensive skincare hacks

Skincare routines are great for your skin and do not have to break the bank.

We all dream of flawless skin that glows even before a shower or lotion application. While some people are born with naturally flawless skin, some have to work extra hard to achieve it. Although not everyone can have spotless and glowy skin, it is still important to take care of your skin and love it no matter how it looks. Harsh weather conditions in the summer can take a toll on your skin, leaving it either too oily or too dry.

Not everyone can afford expensive skincare routines by a professional dermatologist, so here are some inexpensive skincare hacks that can be done at home:

Drink water

It goes without saying that water is essential for the functioning of the body and skin. In summer, our bodies dehydrate quicker because of the heat. It is important to recharge and drink as much water possible. Carry a water bottle with you everywhere you go and be sure to have it close by when you are at home. Flavouring water with fruit pieces such as lemon and strawberries can also make it more enjoyable to drink, making it easier for you to consume water regularly.

Wear a hat and sunscreen

The sun’s vitamin D helps with phosphate and calcium regulation, but too much of anything is a bad thing – so wear that hat and sunscreen! Exposing your skin to too much heat can leave it burnt, dry and red. This is not progressive for your skin goals so heat exposure should be limited by all means. A nice woven hat with small ventilation spaces can help protect your face and shoulders from too much sun exposure.

Steam your face at night

Cleansing your skin with products can help open pores and clear build-up, but steaming helps to get to places that cleansers can’t. Fill a small bowl with hot water and cover yourself with a towel while allowing the steam on your skin, opening your pores and leaving it feeling fresh and cool. After steaming, gently wipe the water off and apply moisturiser to avoid dryness.

Switch to a healthier lifestyle

At some point in our lives, we’ve all heard that we are what we eat and we often take this truth for granted. Our skin renews itself every 28 – 35 days depending on age. It does this to renew cells and in the process, it responds to everything we have eaten for the past 28 – 35 days. This means it brings everything we have in our system from the inside to the outside. So imagine how great you would look if your meals were cleaner!

We all have different skin types and some require more attention than others. These inexpensive hacks can help to rejuvenate your skin slowly, giving it a flawless glow in the long run.
