Nothing is as important to women as their skin as important as clear skin. Our face is the first thing people see when they interact with us and to maintain our beauty, we invest so much in skin care routines. 

Investing in skincare routines is not enough. You have to do certain things to make you that your regimen is working. Here are a few suggestions that will help you maintain the clear skin you invest money and time into having. 

Wear Sunscreen

Black doesn't crack but it gets sunburnt. Sunburns are the worst thing that can ever happen to your skin as they tend to make every skin problem you face afterwards worse than it should be. 

Dark spots become more resistant when exposed to the sun, so you should never leave the house without applying your sunscreen.

Also when you are applying your sunscreen, use the two-fingers rule. Do not be mean with it. Apply it with the generosity our African mothers usually use when they are oiling their babies.

Be Consistent With Your Skin Care Regimen 

Many people buy skin care products but often lack the discipline to do their skincare routine every morning and at night before they sleep.

To have glowing skin with no blemishes, you must realize that consistency is critical.

I recognize that people usually get home tired but sparing 10 minutes every night to care for your face is a worthy sacrifice. 


You can buy all the skin care products in the market but if you are not drinking enough water, then they do not get to work for you the way they should.

Your body needs water. Your skin depends on it and even your lips.

Try and carry a water bottle everywhere and see how your life will change.

Do Not Sleep With Your Makeup On

A lot of people including me are guilty of this. It usually happens on the weekends when people go out and get home totally drunk. 

To hack this, you have to be intentional about what you want your face to look like. Sleeping with makeup dirties your sheets and does such horrible harm to your face.

Use Quality Makeup Products

There are a lot of substandard makeup products in the market and they are probably the number one reason why people struggle with skin issues.

I understand that makeup products are really expensive but that is one of those sacrifices you have to make for the greater good.

You also do not have to buy them all at once. Get one product at a time and you will never have everything you need. 

Sleep On Clean Sheets

As they say, cleanliness is next to Godliness. As it happens, cleanliness is also the key to a clear face. You have to change your bedsheets and pillowcases every three days if you want your skin care products to do the work they are supposed to do. 

See A Certified Dermatologist 

The thing about skincare is that a lot of people do not invest in seeing professional doctors for guidance. 

We depend so much on influencers and the thing about influencers is that they are out to sell products. They do not care for your face the way a professional would.

Getting guidance from a doctor will make sure that you will end up with the right products for your face and you will ultimately end up spending your money on products that are helpful to you.

Eat Well

You have to eat your vegetables. A clean diet goes a long way in making sure your body is healthy and your skin is in good face.

While it is okay to indulge in junk from time to time, it should not be what shows up on your plate every other day.

Take your fruits, drink enough water, and eat your vegetables and your skin will show thanks by behaving as it should.
