The general skin care ‘rules’ Mum never taught you.
For many of us women, we learn what’s good for our skin through trial and error. Usually, this means trying a lot of products, more than necessary, until one clicks. But we don’t know much about what our body needs, beyond the general skin care 3-step rule (cleanse, tone and moisturise).
Let’s go through five of the best things you can do for your skin that are simple to remember to do every day. Some are general skin care tips that you might not know, but all five are essential to a lovely complexion.

General skin care 101.
Don’t let breakouts, redness and dryness control you. Follow these general skin care tips and you’ll find it’s much easier to manage.
- Drink plenty of water
This general skin care point is so simple we forget it. Water is vitally important for maintaining a healthy complexion. It flushes out the toxins and keeps your body working properly. Given that your skin is the biggest organ, make sure you’re drinking enough water to keep it ‘hydrated.’
The part of this general skin care tip that you might not know is your skin is the last organ to receive nutrients and nourishment from water. So, drink up! As we’re coming into summer, make sure you’re drinking more than you normally would.
- Eat more antioxidants
You know that food affects your skin. There’s nothing new about this general skin care tip. But, you might not know the exact nutrients your body needs for luminous skin (and hair). Summer is a great time to pack your plate full of fruit and veggies. So, if you’re on the run, add a juice to your day. They’re full of vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients that aid in blood flow and cell turnover. Put carrots, kale, beets, ginger, pineapple and lemons into your blender.
- Don’t go overboard
While there will be times where you feel like going all out with self-care Sunday, it’s best to keep things simple. What do we mean by this general skincare tip? Have three products you use every day, go minimal with your makeup, and don’t get tempted in trying everything you see.
- Settle your mind
Not enough is said about this general skin care tip. Stress and skin health go hand-in-hand. If your mind is anxious, it will affect your body (particularly your face). You’ve probably heard of the stress hormone, cortisol. But, did you know that it makes your body produce more oil, which leads to breakouts and other issues? Keep this general skin care tip in mind when you’re feeling stress or anxiety. Have tools to help you, like meditation or journaling.
