There are days and activities that you need not put makeup on such as going to the beach or taking a short trip to the market to buy groceries. If it bothers you to go out of the house and be seen with just your skin--no BB creams, concealers, and lipsticks, then you might not be as skin confident as you think. And it might be time to change that mindset!



Do you have a daily skincare routine?

If there's one thing to really take note about skincare, it's this: that your skin should never feel squeaky clean after every wash. In fact, as noted by dermatologist Dr Joyce Lim in the video below, a squeaky clean face simply means that you've stripped your skin of its natural oils and water, essentially drying it out and making it more prone to peeling, excessive oil secretion, and break outs.




A good cleanser removes oil, dead skin, makeup, and other impurities from your face with ease. At the same time, it doesn't strip your skin of water or reduce the skin's lipid content.

With all the products available in the market today, how does one pick a cleanser that won't dry the skin while still keeping it clean? Simple--just look at the ingredients and the consistency of the product. Some ingredients to look for: water, propylene glycol, cetyl alcohol, and sodium lauryl sulfate. 

But if we have to give a general tip to keep in mind, it'll be this: stay away from harsh bar soaps and cleansers that foam too much. A thick, foamy consistency tends to dry out your skin faster compared to clearer formulations that don't lather into a face full of foam.
