How to Keep Your Face Looking Great By Howcast

A little T.L.C. throughout the day will keep your face looking young and lovely for a lifetime.

To complete this How-To you will need:

A non-comedogenic facial cleanser
A sink or basin
Some warm water
A towel
A natural, alcohol-free toner
A cotton ball or pad
A non-comedogenic moisturizer with SPF 15
Foods rich in antioxidants and vitamin C
And at least 8 glasses of water
Antiseptic wipes (optional)
Sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 (optional)
Sunglasses (optional)
A wide-brimmed hat (optional)
Makeup remover (optional)
Night cream with retinol (optional)

Step 1: Wash your face

In the morning, wash your face with warm water and a non-comedogenic facial cleanser appropriate for your skin type. Pat your face dry with a towel and apply an alcohol-free toner with a cotton ball or pad. Avoid bar soap or harsh scrubs, which strip the skin of essential moisture.

Step 2: Moisturize

Apply a moisturizer with an SPF of at least 15 every day, and if you spend a large part of your day outdoors, apply an additional sunscreen—again, with an SPF of at least 15—every two hours.

Tip: To further limit your exposure to the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, wear sunglasses that block UVA and UVB rays and a wide-brimmed hat.

Step 3: Avoid touching face

During the day, avoid touching your face with your hands or anything else that could spread grease and bacteria.

Tip: From time to time, clean the ear- and mouthpieces of your phones with antiseptic wipes—following the instructions for usage and taking care not to damage the phones.

Step 4: Avoid smoking

Avoid smoking. Nicotine can diminish the blood—and thus oxygen—that flows to the skin, and smoking can lead to pronounced "crow's feet" and wrinkled, sallow skin.

Step 5: Drink water

Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. When the body dries out, it pulls moisture from the skin.

Step 6: Eat right foods

Eat foods rich in antioxidants, like blueberries, which combat wrinkles by reducing free radicals. Fruits high in vitamin C, such as oranges, help build collagen, which keeps skin firm.

Step 7: Remove makeup

If you're wearing heavy eye makeup, make sure you use a cotton ball or pad soaked in eye makeup remover to wipe it off before bed.

Step 8: Wash your face

Again, wash your face with warm water and a non-comedogenic facial cleanser, then pat it dry with a towel and apply an alcohol-free toner.

Step 9: Moisturize

Before hitting the pillow, apply a moisturizer or a night cream with retinol—a type of vitamin A that encourages cell renewal—according to the product instructions.
