Do a Bit of Research
Are your skin care products just right for your needs, or what you want to achieve with your complexion? Although there are aisles and aisles of whitening products to choose from in the supermarket, not every product works as effectively as others. Before purchasing, make sure to do a little reading and background check on your whitening product: What are the ingredients? Are they known skin whitening elements?
Do Read Reviews
Balance your research with a look into what people are saying about a product. Does it instantly show results? Does it feel nice on the skin? Are there unpleasant side effects you should be aware of? Read comments and feedback (both good and bad) on skin whitening products, from known beauty bloggers and on eCommerce websites (from people who actually bought the product).
Do Follow a Good Skin Care Routine
Skin loves consistency! When you have a good skin care routine and you keep with it, religiously, it shows on your complexion. So, put together a routine that works for you. If you do have a routine already, maybe it’s time to revisit and check if you need to improve on any of the steps.
Do Eat & Drink Healthy
Healthy, luminous skin is the product of good and healthy habits on the inside and outside of the body.
- Make sure to get a daily fill of the healthy stuff: a balanced plate of lean protein, fruits and vegetables.
- Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. This is to keep the skin hydrated and to rid the body of toxins.
- Prevent tired, dull skin from showing with regular exercise and adequate rest and shut-eye.
Don’t Leave Your Home Without Sunscreen
Dark, uneven skin tone and maybe even a few fine lines… too much sun can wreak havoc on your complexion! Protect your skin whitening efforts by making a habit out of wearing sunscreen. With the right Sun Protection Factor (SPF), sunscreen helps fight against the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays, known for causing premature skin aging and wrinkling.
Don’t Overdo It
Part of a good skin care routine is letting your skin take a breather from all the processes. Take bathing with a whitening soap, for example. While regular use is a must, usage should also be regulated. Washing too much can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it thin and dry. To prevent this, avoid long hot showers, wash with whitening soaps no more than once a day and regularly follow up each bath with a skin-nourishing smear of body lotion.
So, are you using your skin whitening products correctly? Or does your skin care routine need a little makeover?
