Secret of Skin


Indian Bloggers

Do you know the greatest secret of our skin???? The secret is that it also needs a break. Yes guys you have heard it right. Sometimes our skin seeks rest from make-up, deep moisturizer and any kinds of products. Yes applying products always on skin is not at all good. The skin begins to lose its natural glow.

So in this coming weekend if you are not going outside and your plan is to spend the weekend in home then you can give it a try.

Start your day by washing your face with plain water. No face wash no cleanser.wash-face-

If you use foundation on a regular basis, give it a break. Foundation clogs the pores of the skin. Due to excessive use of make up the skin suffers from breathing problem.

Whenever you get time wash your face with water and sometimes use wet face wipes.1618-Face-Wipes-Available

Due to the daily use of moisturizer and make up the skin stops to produce its own moisture.

The skin fails to breathe for the thick creme that covered the surface of skin. If the skin fails to get the oxygen that it requires then all kinds of aging problems will attack you.

When you are following this regime…drink lots of water.bigstock_Beautiful_girl_drinking_water__16971677-1024x683

Sleep is another important thing for healthy skin.
