I’m sure everyone will love to have glowing skin. But, even if you’re eating right, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly, breakouts can be sneaky. Your skin will be all fine during normal days and just before you have to attend a wedding or party, those annoying zits pop up. They can be incredibly frustrating as you have to deal with them right before such important occasions.
If you’re pressed for time and looking for a quick fix here are some of the ways through which you can supercharge your skin.
It’s important that you get rid of dead skin cells to treat your dull skin. When they pile up, they defuse the natural glow of the skin. So use exfoliators that have glycolic acid and salicylic acid as they are effective in sweeping away dead cells and cleaning clogged pores. Just make sure you don’t overdo it as it’ll irritate your skin and make it red. Once or twice a week is more than enough.
Milk contains many vitamins that are good for the skin. Plus, the lactic acid and enzymes in it act as skin exfoliators and give you a smooth look. Apply a thin layer of milk on your face and massage with upward strokes. Do this until the milk is entirely absorbed by your skin. Then in the morning wash your face with a mild face wash.
