You may think it’s impossible to get perfect skin in one week, hell you may not think it’s even possible in a month. And when it comes to your skin, there can be so many factors that control how it acts and behaves. A zit can even pop up when it feels like it. So, what do you do to be the one in control? Well, take it from someone who has had enough struggles with their skin to know all the tricks and tips there are! But give these tips a go and see the difference for yourself:
1. Change your foundation:

And for Christmas, I was treated to a new foundation, the Fenty that everyone has been ranting and raving about. And I feel like it was made for my skin. It feels like a second skin, and I feel like I’ve got a new glow about me. Buy yours here.

Cross your heart and promise you won’t forget to cleanse anymore because it will be the reason for bad breakouts! And, if you’re a girl who doesn’t cleanse at all then make it an essential part of your routine. Clear your skin from all the day’s impurities especially if you live in the City!

3. Keep it hydrated:

The key to good skin is hydration. I don’t just mean drinking your two liters of water a day, but choosing moisturizers that target dry skin by providing it with intense hydration. Knowing your skin type and temperaments is essential for picking the products that really do your skin justice. And if hydration is something you struggle with, this moisturizer is the one for you!

4. Glow all day long:

We all want soft, luminescent skin, but it can be quite hard to achieve! But when you have the right brand like The Ordinary, you know you’re in safe hands. This product is amazing for illuminating your complexion with infused vitamins like F & C. Consider your skin brightened! Buy it here.
5. Never have dull skin again:
Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner $18 available here
Dull skin attacks us all, especially when we’re feeling a little stressed! Because, I think you already know that when you’re tired, your skin looks pretty tired too. And it really is unavoidable, but you can treat it with Grapefruit! It has amazing energizing properties. So, when it’s included in your skincare you know that your face is going to be looking and feeling refreshed! And this toner does this trick! Buy it here.
7. Change your pillowcase regularly:
Did you know that when you sleep the oil from your hair comes onto your pillow? So, after a week this builds up and transfers to your face whilst you sleep, which is definitely not the definition of beauty sleep! Make sure to change them once a week!
8. Get your beauty sleep:
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate $46 available here
Using a product that works whilst you sleep is key! You can wake up feeling fresh and looking good too! And this oil is known to help hydration and elasticity! You’ll find your skin will look a lot brighter and a lot more radiant if I do say so myself! Buy yours here.
9. Exfoliate more:
Amorepacific Treatment Enzyme Peel $60 available here
I probably exfoliated once in a blue moon, but I found out that you should exfoliate at least twice a week, if not every day, which really changed my whole skincare routine. But, if you have sensitive skin or not, I really recommend it’s best for you to go for a gentle exfoliator. Because you never know the real affects winter might be having on your skin. And this one is the bestseller that I can’t get enough of! Buy yours here.
10. Ice, ice baby:
After your evening ritual run an ice cube over your face to lock in your pores will prevent any impurities working their way back into your skin. The ice will also work to soften redness and alleviate blemishes. Who knew?
