Tips for healthy and glowing skin

Back when I was in high school, my friends would always say your skin is flawless, even my guy friends would accuse me of wearing foundation which heck I didn’t even own until my last year of high school. While I didn’t think my skin was flawless as I would get occasional blemishes from picking at pimples (I know awful awful thing to do), my skin was still much healthier in comparison to many. The reason as to why? Well genetics play a huge and important role in the way your skin is but there are many other factors as well. So I thought I’d share a quick list of tips that I use to take care of my skin.

Tip #1: Don’t wash your face too much.

You’re probably thinking what is this girl thinking..but overwashing your face actually results in dry skin so don’t do it!
I only use a cleanser at night and only if I’m wearing makeup. Otherwise, just water and soap it is. Cleansers tend to have many chemicals which with too much use can be harsh for your skin. Also, if you’re cleansing before going to bed, then there is no point in cleansing again in the morning.

My current favourite and go to cleanser is the 4 in 1 Philosophy Purity cleanser. It’s seriously a holy grail cleanser, so light, refreshing and smells great as well!

Bioré Baking Soda Cleanser and Baking Soda Scrub

Bioré’s latest innovation comes in the form of something we have in our own kitchen and have used probably a million times, baking soda! That’s right, we used them for cakes and volcanoes, so it’s about time we use them for beauty products, eh!

The new Bioré cleanser (CAD $6.99) is a gel like substance similar to other drugstore cleansers, but what makes it special is that instead of using microbeads, baking soda particles are used in the same way that microbeads are usually used. So you still get that nice massage feeling minus the microbeads which we now know as being bad for the environment! In terms of cleansing, my skin felt very smooth and fresh afterwards. I enjoyed using the cleanser and I find that it doesn’t have a very strong scent either.
