If you’d love a flawless skin without a pimple in sight, here are five tips that work for girls and boys.

1. Wash your face every morning

Make it a habit to wash your face every morning just after you’ve brushed your teeth. Sweat, oil and bacteria build up on your skin during the night and you should wash it off immediately. This also removes excess oil, which can cause acne. You only need to wash your face lightly – if you scrub it too violently it could irritate sensitive skin.

2. Use a moisturiser

When you moisturise your skin you replace the natural oils and water lost during the course of the day. If you’re inclined to getting pimples, don’t use a heavy oil. Always apply moisturiser after you’ve washed your face.

3. Protect your skin

If you want to avoid looking like a dried-out prune by the time you’re 30, it’s important to apply sunscreen to your face every day. The South African sun is especially damaging and all skin types must use sunblock. Buy a moisturiser that already has a SPF (minimum factor 30) to kill two birds with one stone. Also try to avoid the sun between 10 am and 2 pm when it’s at its fiercest to avoid premature ageing and skin cancer.

4. Always wash your face before you go to sleep

This is one of the most important habits to cultivate if you want a glowing skin. When you sleep your skin breathes. That’s why it’s important to remove any make-up or dirt before you go to sleep, no matter how tired you are. Use special products to remove make-up, especially around the sensitive eye area. Choose natural products that will not irritate your skin.

5. Be natural

If you use make-up, don’t overdo it. It could irritate your skin and make problems such as pimples worse.

Remember: Beauty comes from within. If you’re full of self-confidence, even though you woke up with a pimple on your forehead this morning, no one will notice it. Promise . . .
