Having a poor skin tone is a problem that many people face. Not only can having a poor skin tone give you a negative self-image, it can impact your overall appearance and make you look and feel very self-conscious, docking your confidence. By optimizing the skin on your face to get a rich complexion and glow, you can ensure that you will look great regardless of how you are dressed or what your natural skin tone is.
Before leaving for work in the morning, use a toner. This will make your skin appear as one shade, instead of a splotched mess of different colors and shades. Choose a toner that is close to your natural skin tone, and apply it across your face to make it all one color. Be careful not to choose the wrong color, or you can look unnatural and be embarrassed. Be sure to blend it down onto your neck and beyond your jawline, as otherwise it will appear as though you are wearing a mask.
At least once a week, exfoliate your skin. This will remove dry skin cells that can flake off, or discolor your face. Use an exfoliating scrub, or a micro massager to relax your skin and eliminate dead or dry skin cells. This will also make your face much softer, and touchably smooth.
Every two weeks, change your pillowcase to a new pillowcase, and wash the other one. This will prevent dirt and oils from your hair from transferring onto your face and causing acne and other skin issues.
Do not wear clothing that is overly tight on your skin, particularly over your face. Balaclavas and ski masks, in addition to beanies and winter hats, can do some damage to your skin. Even goggles, glasses, or protective eyewear worn during sports or work can have an effect on your skin tone, so loosen them (within reason) before using them.
After working out, immediately take a shower and wash your face. This will prevent sweat and oil from building up on your skin and making you feel sticky and look blotchy.
Limit the amount of time you spend exposed to the sun. This is very important, particularly in the sunny summer months. The son can do a number on your skin, particularly in drying it out or giving you sunburn, which can be detrimental to your skin tone.
Avoid hot or spicy foods. These often put a reddish tint to the face for up to several hours after you eat them, depending on how hot or spicy they are. For some people, even thinking about hot or spicy foods causes them to get red and sweaty.
Achieving the best skin tone for your body can be a great way to improve your image. By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your skin will be smooth and soft, and remain true to color, regardless of what you’re doing or what the weather is like, helping you put your best foot forward.
