Drink green tea

Always remove your makeup
As a golden rule on taking care of your skin, always remove your makeup if you don’t want to clog your pores. If you have a hectic schedule and you find it tiring to go to the washroom, you can use makeup wipes instead.
Catch some Zzz’s

Always use a gentle facial cleanser
Be careful about choosing facial cleanser. You should always go with a cleanser that won’t strip the natural oils on your skin but instead add moisture and soothe your overall complexion. If the facial cleanser you are using causes redness, itchiness, and even pimples, it’s time to switch to a new one.
Do not forget to moisturize
Always keep your skin hydrated by not just drinking enough water but also applying moisturizer on your face. Not only will it make you look younger, but it will also make your skin feel smoother.
