10 Ways to Get Perfect Skin in 2 Weeks


2. Clean, Tone, and Moisturize

You surely know the golden rule of treatment your skin before bed or applying beauty products. This is cleansing, toning and moisturizing. Fortunately, most beauty brands provide women with series that already contain everything necessary starting from cleanser and ending with eye gel. It remains only to choose the line regarding your skin type.

When you clean your skin, do so gently using just your fingers and soap or a mild exfoliant. People with dry or oily skin will do well with an exfoliant. But if you use scrubbing agents, make sure they are milled enough, or you can damage the skin. After cleaning your skin, pat it dry (never rub it) and apply a toner. Toners help to reduce wrinkles and strengthen skin. With oily skin, they narrow pores and reduce the greasy luster. Finally, if you have dry skin, apply a moisturizer advertised as “noncomedogenic,” which means it won’t worsen acne and blackheads. People with oily skin generally don’t need moisturizer, except in dry winter months. But if you feel you need to moisten your skin, use a multipurpose primer or foundation. In most cases they already contain nourishing and moisturizing ingredients.

As a side note, a few drops of fresh lemon juice make an excellent toner. I also love using ice cubes with herbal extracts or dab my face with cucumber slices.
