Taking long showers everyday can actually strip your skin of its natural oils. Practice taking short showers and moisturize immediately after drying off.
2. Slay in Your Sunnies
.Skincare expert Dr. Imahiyerobo-Ip says “always wear your sunglasses. The skin around the eyes is the thinnest skin on our bodies and is very susceptible to damage from UV rays. Wearing sunglasses will help prevent fine lines and wrinkles as well as skin cancer.”
3. Ice Cubes
The Coded skincare trick making the rounds in beauty circle is the power of Ice Cubes. It involved rubbing ice cubes on your face create the illusion of firmer, glowy skin, after taking a lukewarm 10minds shower. It is advised though, that you put on a skin barrier first, like a cream, oil or even yogurt from the fridge before applying the ice cubes.
4. Put In What You Take Out
Water and exercise is great for your skin but be cognizant of the balance between your water intake and water loss. According to Dr. Helen Knaggs, Vice President of Global Research and Development at Nu Skin, having more or less of either one is what contributes to dry skin.
5. Accept Changes

Covering it with more makeup or going on a frantic beauty product spree may leave you worse off. Zhao says, “for example, anything that occurs right before your period, such as cramps, breast tenderness, blemishes, bloating is considered pre-menstrual syndrome.”
