Water aids in digestion, circulation, absorption and get rid of toxins from your body. Many people often report that by increasing their water intake, their skin becomes healthier.

3. Eat clean
Eating clean has been proven in improving your skin. However, there has been a misconception that has been cleared up by our dermatologist. People believe that eating peanuts and oily food can worsen your acne. This has never been scientifically proven. It’s not the oil that you should worry about, but the calorie. Dr. Ingky has explain how food with high calorie can trigger acne. High calorie diet leads to an increase in skin oil (sebum) production. In general, more sebum means more acne. So, the formula is, more calorie intake increases the chances to worsen your acne.
4. Sweat gives us glow
Sweating is one of the most significant signs of a healthy body and a beautiful skin. Here are some of the reasons why sweating is extremely beneficial for your skin.
5. Avoid these homemade remedies | Lemon, coffee and toothpaste
The temptation to create DIY skincare from ingredients that we can easily find at home has grown enormously over the past few years. However, the ingredients such as lemon, coffee and toothpaste are not necessarily safe to beused topically on our skin. Plenty of DIY skincare and beauty hacks aren't beneficial and may even cause harm in the long run. When it comes to skincare, makeup, and body care, it's important to be well informed about the ingredients that we apply. Let’s take a look on these ingredients that you should avoid.
The highly acidic properties of lemons make them a harmful natural ingredient that can visibly irritate skin. While acids can help diminish dark spots and exfoliate the skin, those found in lemons and other citrus fruits aren't suitable for topical use. When applied directly to the face, lemons make the skin extremely sensitive to UV rays from the sun, putting you at risk of developing discoloration, sunburn, and overall skin damage.
Although homemade coffee scrubs might not seem harmful, they are for your skin and wallet. For your skin, the micro-tears produced by rubbing the untested coffee grounds directly to your face can result in severe dryness and irritation according to your skin’s sensitivity. Not only it can damage your face and body by causing micro-tears, irritation, and discomfort, but they can also clog your pipes and, in the long run, create costly drain blockage.
The beauty hack of using toothpaste as a spot treatment should be avoided. Formulated with both, baking soda and peroxide, toothpaste creates irritation leaving your skin dry and flaky. Also, leaving toothpaste on pimples overnight can worsen your zits leaving scarring and marks.
6. Double Cleansing
What is the double cleanse? It’s a cleansing method that uses two types of cleansers: an oil-based cleanser, and a water-based cleanser. Basically, oil cleansers remove oil-based impurities such as makeup and sebum. Meanwhile, water cleansers remove water-based impurities such as sweat and dirt. Cleansing in this way ensures that both types of impurities are removed from your skin, and your face gets the deepest, gentlest clean possible.
Once you have a basic routine down, you can begin to add any of these skincare tips here and there, as needed. As your skincare routine continues to develop and evolve, perhaps the most important piece of information to remember this: Less is more.
