7 Ways TO Take Care Of Your Skin Without Spending Money

We all know taking care of our skin requires handing over a bit of cash in exchange for products like serums, moisturisers, cleansers, sunscreen, etc. In case you don’t know, there are other ways we can take care of our skin and even improve our health without spending money.

(1) Sleep on a Silk or Satin Pillowcase

Many people are not aware of the fact that they give themselves wrinkles while sleeping. We often
do this by smooching our face into the pillow, which puts friction between our skin. This, in return, creates creases which can cause wrinkles if we continue to sleep like that for a prolonged period.
Sleeping on a silk pillowcase allows our skin to “slip”, minimising the chance of creating wrinkles.

(2) Drink Water

Water helps all body systems function better, even though it doesn’t directly hydrate the skin.
It also helps skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, aids the liver in eliminating toxins from
the body, and even reduces puffiness on the face. You can tell that you aren’t drinking enough
water if the colour of your urine is a deep shade of Amber. The colour of lemonade is the goal.

(3) Reduce Sugar Intake

If your energy source is added sugar and refined carbohydrates, it will have some effect on your skin. Too much sugar in the body can cause a surge in insulin and inflammation. Insulin is the hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates the amount of sugar in the body. Check in with yourself if you notice that your skin is becoming more vulnerable to the sun produces acne and
shows more arrivals of wrinkles and lines department.

(4) Reduce Touching And Picking Your Face

By squeezing a pimple, you can create more lasting damage to your skin than the instant gratification is worth. It can also cause an acne called acne mechanica caused by friction from touching the face and pushing oil and bacteria back into the pore of the face. Apart from that, picking and squeezing your face can result in a scar or brown spot called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

(5) Exercising

Besides getting our sweat out, exercise is great for our entire body. It also has some other benefits.
Exercising helps the blood that carries oxygen and nutrients circulate around all of our cells; it also helps the skin repair itself faster.

(6) Sleep! Sleep! Sleep!

Beauty sleep is the real deal when taking care of your skin. When we sleep, our body heals and regenerates cells. Sleep also helps increase the sleep hormone melatonin, which acts as an antioxidant to fight fine lines, wrinkles and skin cancer.

(7) Limit Your Time in The Sun

We all know that limiting our skin to sun exposure prevents skin ageing, skin cancer, and many other side effects. If you won’t be using sunscreen, try to limit your sun exposure or seek shade when hanging out. You can also put on clothes that protect your body from exposure to the sun.
