Your skin needs to be taken care of too. If you have normal skin, you don’t have to go all out with a skincare routine. However, you should make it a point to stay healthy, hydrated and follow a basic natural skincare regimen.
1. Stay Hydrated
If you don’t drink enough water throughout the day, your skin may dry up and start getting flaky. It can also lead to excess sebum production.
2. Wear Sunscreen
Sunscreen is a must for overall skin health maintenance. Direct sun exposure can dry up your skin, cause wrinkles and dark patches. A mineral sunscreen is recommended to avoid clogging skin pores. (mineral = based on zink oxid)
Moisturizers are a must for any skin type. They keep the skin moist and prevent it from overproducing sebum. Try Pure Normal SKin Face Cream .
4. Remove Your Makeup Before Sleeping
