Skin Care for normal skin

Here are some tips to take care of your skin.
  1.  Do cleanse and moisturise your skin daily.
  2. Use cold or tepid water for baths.
  3.  Do keep baths short; soaking your skin for half an hour is really abusing it.
  4.  Do use sunglasses with side shields.
  5.  Do wear loose fitting and light coloured clothes to help your body breathe
  6.  Do wash your face twice a day with a suitable soap or facewash.
  7.  Do remember to pay particular attention to folds of skin during a bath.
  8.  Do facial exercises daily or alternatively have several laughs a day
  9.  Don’t use harsh soaps or detergents on the face
  10.  Don’t cement in your pores with layers of powder if you have oily skin. It will trigger breakouts.
  11.  Don’t wear heavy makeup or makeup that runs due to perspiration.
  12.  Don’t wear makeup to bed no matter how tired you are.
  13.  Don’t use heavy night creams. They clog pores and cause puffiness.
  14.  Don’t use chemical makeup removers. Preferably, use muslin cloth (which can be washed and reused) dipped in vegetable oil to remove eye makeup. Or use cleansing milk.
  15.  Don’t venture into the direct sun without proper protection. Use an umbrella or widebrimmed hat. Use chemical sunscreens only if physical protection is not possible
