Taking proper care of your skin is a lot of work. There’s a long list of things you should do and an even longer list of things you shouldn’t do. It can become too much, so here’s a quick and simple guide on how to take good care of your skin.

Understand your skin type

It might be tempting but don’t dive head-first into everything you see other people doing. Figure out what type of skin you have and what mayfor you. That way, you’re not wasting time and money on products that might cause you more harm than good.

Get money

Skincare is anything but cheap.If you want to put in enough hard work for your skin to finally take pity on you and start caring, you’ll need to get your bag up as soon as possible.

Keep your hands away from your face 

Think of all the surfaces you’ve touched throughout the day. Now think of all the people who have also touched them and where their hands might have been. You don’t want germs anywhere near parts of the body you’re trying to take care of, especially your face.

Always moisturize

You’ll need to get used to moisturising your skin and not just slapping oils on. When you use a good moisturising lotion like Nivea Radiant Beauty Even Glow

, you get 48-hour moisture that leaves your skin looking and feeling better.  It has 95% pure vitamin C and Pearl Extract that helps reduce the appearance of dark spots leaving you with a visibly radiant and even tone skin in just two weeks.

Use sunscreen

There’s truth behind the sunscreen hype sunscreen. It protects you from the harsh rays of the sun, makes sure skin cancer stays far away from you, and stops you from looking 55 at the young age of 25. If you get the Nivea Even Glow lotion you won’t need to get a body sunscreen because it contain SPF 15.

Don’t ever say Zikoko did nothing for you.

Get a daily skincare routine 

It doesn’t have to be an elaborate 10-step routine, as long as you wake up every morning and make sure your skin feels loved and tended to.

Change your pillowcase once a week 

Forget about all the slobbering you do while sleeping and think about the dust mites that have made your pillowcase their home. The more time you spend with the same pillowcase, the more dead skin cells accumulate, the more dust mites you get, and the higher your chances of acne and bacterial infections.
