Skincare is one of the best things you can do for yourself. And contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on expensive products. There are some simple everyday things you can do to greatly improve the health of your skin.

From homemade face masks to DIY body scrubs, there are simple things you can do right at home to improve the health of your skin. It only takes a few minutes, but it can make you look and feel years younger.

Take Care Of Your Health 

You should maintain a proper diet full of essential vitamins and nutrients as well as fibre and omega fatty acids to maintain the health of your body as well as your skin. Also, it is important to stay hydrated. You should drink 8 to 10 eight ounce glasses of water a day. Green tea is also beneficial for your skin as it contains antioxidants, antibacterial properties and polyphenol.

Sleep is another important factor. You should get at least 8 hours of sleep a night for your health and the health of your skin, as well.

Know Your Skin Type

You think that you would be able to readily identify your skin type if someone asked, right? How many of us really know what type of skin we have? Do you have dry skin? Oily? Combination? What is your undertone? Do you have sensitive skin? If you are unsure, it can’t hurt to consult a professional such as a dermatologist or beautician. Then you will be able to purchase products that are most suited for your skin type. You certainly don’t want to apply the wrong products to your skin as this can cause more harm than good.

Always Remove Your Makeup

You might feel tired after a long day at work or a fun evening out. And as a result, you might not feel like taking the time to properly remove your makeup. However, taking off your makeup is just as important as brushing your teeth. If you don’t have the energy to use a cleaner, you can use a cleansing wipe.

And coconut oil is one of the best ways to remove eye makeup. Simply dab a bit on your eye and wipe off with a cotton pad. If you don’t remove your makeup, you will clog your pores and be prone to breakouts and dry or oily skin, depending on your skin type. A few minutes to cleanse your skin can go a long way and your skin will thank you!


Speaking of cleansing, let’s not forget the importance of exfoliating. You can make a homemade face scrub or you can purchase an exfoliant at your local beauty or drug store. You should exfoliate your skin at least once a week to get rid of dead skin cells and to rejuvenate it. Besides, a blackhead removal mask comes in more than beneficial too. Again, it only takes a few minutes, but it can make a world of difference!


Moisturizing your skin is just as important as cleansing and exfoliating. You should moisturize your skin no matter what type of skin you have. And it should be part of your daily routine, year round. There are moisturizers designed for every skin type. And if you want to use a more natural product, you can always use coconut oil. It works wonders on dark circles under the eyes and fine lines.
