Improving your skin tone is a huge responsibility because your skin is the largest organ in your body. Most of the time, people just want a quick fix. I get questions like, "how can i get my skin to glow in 1 week?" and so on. The truth is that it takes dedication, pampering and most of the time, "loads of eating".
What peeps do not know is that the skin tone gets improved through what you eat mostly. Yes your creams, and make-up can help out, but the natural glow comes mostly from your intake and exercise (will put up another post dedicated to exercise as a topic later).
Therefore, your overall health, skin products, hormones, age and diet all work together to improve your skin tone.
Bare in mind that working towards an even and lovely skin tone takes a lot of patience, time and care. So here goes:
Step 1: Cleanse, tone and Moisturize (pls check out my previous post on cleansing, toning and moisturising)
Step 2: Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate. This cannot be over emphasised. exfoliating helps get rid of dead skin cells revealing a newer and more glowing skin. To improve your skin tone, try exfoliating 2-3 times a week.
Step 3: Drink loads of water ( I am so guilty of this one). Drinking water hydrates the skin, preventing it from drying out. Lets try drinking @ least 8 glasses a day (yuk!! i know right, but lets DRINK!!! lol)
Step 4: Exercise is so key. I know there are loads of excuses for not exercising like "work", "tiredness", "i am not strong", bla bla bla! But the truth is you will have a "banging body" + fresh skin. What more can i say?
Step 5: Still need that quick fix? for a party perhaps? Then resort to using make-up, but be sure to wash it off @ the end of the day and refer back to step 1.
