Skipping a skin care regimen because of a busy day can give rise to another skipped day, and another again the next day. A busy schedule may seem too much, but that does not mean you should forego taking care of your skin because of your job or responsibilities. People (and that includes your business partners, colleagues, and employers), put a weight on your appearance. You have to look presentable, and taking care of your skin may benefit you more than putting on makeup. Here are skin care tips for busy people so that can help you do your business without neglecting yoru skin.
Get your daily splash of water
Splashing your face with water gives you more than just your standard morning wakeup call. It helps wash out accumulated film of dirt and oil without causing a great disturbance on your skin’s natural balance. Instead of letting all those impurities accumulate layer by layer, it will help you a lot if you take a second or two to splash water on your face. Pat your face dry with a clean paper towel instead of a washcloth will help prevent irritation caused by bacteria.
Ramp up your splash of water routine with Actinera® Charcoal Dead Sea Mud Bar. It’s highly effective in clearing out dirt and oil that you can use it every 2-3 days give you that fresh, clean feel.
Go easy on the foundation
Foundations give you that smooth, clear appearance by covering your blemishes. However, most foundation formulas are comedogenic. The more a foundation makes your skin look shiny and supple looking, the more oil it has that will clog your pores.
Go instead for loose mineral powders. They give you that sheer coverage without blocking your pores. Some mineral powders even come with ingredients that help absorb excess oil, thereby controlling your breakouts to a degree.
Use a face mask once a week
At the end of a stressful week, you just want to sit back and read a good book, watch a movie, or listen to some music. You can give yourself a break and take care of your skin at the same time by applying Actinera® Deep Pore-Suction Mask. As the mask slowly dries, it draws out dead skin cells and excess oil as well as unsightly blackheads and whiteheads. You’ll be surprised at the number of blackheads and whiteheads the mask will take out after letting it do its work on your skin for 15-30 minutes.
UV rays are known to damage your skin, causing spots, hyperpigmentation, as well as premature aging. Use sunscreen with SPF 25++ to help protect your skin from damage. Apply it before you dress up or before eating your meal so that it will be on effect when you go out of the house.
Get a good enough sleep
You feel that you’re productive because you accomplished a lot by sacrificing your sleeping hours. Unfortunately, sleep deprivation has detrimental effects on your body and mind. Your skin will show signs of premature aging, and you get breakouts. Sleep at least 7-8 hours a day to help give your body time to heal and rejuvenate itself after a long, stressful day.
Eat a healthy diet
What you eat can determine how much you need to care for your skin. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamin A, C, and E to help your skin retain its suppleness and youthful appearance. Go easy on eggs, dairy, cakes, white bread, and nuts, pasta, and processed food. They are known to increase blood sugar levels, causing an inflammatory response that leads to the formation of breakouts.
You don’t have to spend too much time taking care of your skin. Balancing your life with work and other responsibilities requires careful attention. However, that does not necessarily mean that you have to send an hour or two a day to take care of your skin. With these skin care tips for busy people, you’ll be able to pay attention to your skin’s needs without compromising your productivity.
