1. Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse

Start and end your day with a good cleansing routine. Make it a point to remove all traces of makeup, dirt, oil, and grime that have accumulated on your skin. Use a quality cleanser suited to your skin type and half your work is done! When cleansing, use circular movements, don’t scrub as that can cause irritation. After you’re done cleansing, wash with cold water as warm water opens up the pores and increases the chances or dirt and bacterian entering. Cold water closes pores and doesn’t allow any dirt to get in. Avoid washing your face very often during the day as that can strip it of natural oils needed for nourishment. Remember to moisturise well after each wash so that your skin stays hydrated.
