  • Drink Water: t’s not a new idea, and has been a tip for years, but many of us do not drink enough water. If you frequently drink beverages that contain caffeine (coffee, tea and soda) or alcohol, you may think you're quenching your thirst, but these fluids can actually deplete the body of essential water. Water helps rid the body of toxins, pollutants and waste that can make the body look and feel sluggish.

  • Wash Your Face at Night: And the reason is not just to remove makeup, which can clog pores and leave potentially harmful chemicals on the skin overnight. Dirt, environmental pollutants, germs, bacteria and excessive oil accumulates on the skin during the day and should be cleansed away so that the skin can breathe and be rejuvenated.

  • Stop Smoking: Like sun damage, smoking is a major factor in the wrinkling of the skin. Nicotine in cigarette smoke causes blood vessels and capillaries to constrict, decreasing the circulation of oxygen within the skin, which is necessary for the health, maintenance and growth of skin cells.

  • Proceed With Caution: Using products that can discolour your skin of, such as bleaching creams, acne treatments, and products with harmful chemicals, and doing certain procedures such as harsh dermabrasion or chemical peels, can cause skin damage, scars and keloids. Always do research and consult a professional about the potential side effects of products and procedures.

  • Use Products for Your Skin Type: Products that are not formulated for your skin type can cause problems. For example, products made for oily skin can further dry out dry skin. Oily or rich moisturizing formulations that are perfect for dry skin can make oily skin shiny or can clog the pores, causing breakouts. Whether your skin is normal, oily, dry, combination, sensitive or mature, seek out products meant for your special skin.

  • Get Enough Sleep: Sleep deprivation can cause under eye circles and puffiness, dull-looking skin, and it also contributes to stress, which aggravates skin conditions like acne, eczema and psoriasis.

  • Respect Your Skin Tone: There is a reason why certain foundations, eye shadow shades and lip stick colours look better on you than others. Skin tone, as well as skin undertones, really do have an impact on what makeup you should use. A foundation that is too light or too dark can make you look like you're wearing a mask. Certain makeup colours might make your skin look muddy or sallow, while others will give skin a gorgeous glow. The perfect makeup enhances your beauty.
