SKINCARE TALK WITH BOLA AKINBOADE-BELLO: TIPS FOR HEALTHIER SKIN IN 2015


If you want to have soft, clear skin, follow the steps below.

CATCH MORE SLEEP:  Lack of sleep causes stress, which can lead to abnormalities in skin structure and function, worsening conditions like acne.

EAT LESS SUGAR:  Excess levels of insulin can lead to the growth of pore-clogging cells, as well as overactive oil gland activity.

EXERCISE MORE: Exercise increases circulation that delivers more oxygen to skin cells and carries cellular wastes away.

DRINK MORE WATER: Upping your water intake is a great way to flush internal toxins and hydrate your skin from inside out.


TAKE OMEGA-3S: They control the production of leukotriene B4, which can increase sebum and cause inflammatory acne.

DE-GERM YOUR CELL: Keep germs away from your face by wiping the surface of your phone with a little hand sanitizer each day.

CLEAN YOUR FACE PROPERLY
·         Use a Makeup Remover
·         Pick the right cleanser for your skin type
·         Wash your face twice a day, avoid over-cleansing.
·         Never go to bed with a dirty face
·         Exfoliation is key to a smooth clean face. Do it once or twice a week
·         Avoid commercial bar soaps, they will dry out your face
·         Do you need a Toner? Toners aren’t for everyone, but if you have oily skin, a toner is a great way to get rid of any excess oil and help mattify your skin before makeup application.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT FOUNDATION
·         ACNE PRONE:  Use, a medium to full coverage foundation to cover textured skin.
·         AGING: Heavy product can settle into fine lines and wrinkles so opt for a light coverage liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer.
·         DRY: To quench your dry skin throughout the day, use a light coverage, hydrating foundation
·         OILY: To ditch the shine, choose a medium to full coverage foundation
·         NORMAL: If you are one of the lucky ones, the level of coverage is really up to personal preference! Test out matte and luminous options to decide which texture you like best
