The hunt for the next game-changing skincare tips and tricks never stops. Listed below are some of the most underrated skin tips you probably never heard of yet (and willing to try).
Cushion your SPF
Double your beauty blenders and makeup sponge function as SPF applicator this time, it makes the product absorbed by skin.
Skin cancer rates have gone high and sunscreen has been proven to decrease the development of skin cancer. Rain or shine, SPF must be applied every single day. Sunscreens with a higher SPF should offer more protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. An SPF 15 for example can cover up to 93 percent of the UVB radiation.

Jasmine extract for skin
By mere breathing the scent of Jasmine signals our brain to reduce anxiety and stress and increase our energy levels. Seasonal changes can be helped by these oil extracts as it can help bolster the skin’s immunity and reduce dryness. It restores the skin’s natural elasticity making acne, wound scars and stretch marks fade. It nourishes the skin, evens out skin tone and protects it from the environmental stress.
Longer, not harder exfoliation
The greater force we apply to our face as we scrub, the more we believe our skin detoxifies. But little did we know that too much force is harmful. Consider an exfoliant rich in fruit and plant enzymes that is mild enough for your skin.
Exfoliation is the most common part of our skincare routine that we skip. Turns out, it has a lot more benefits than we think it has. Aside from making your skin feel smoother and softer, it can also delay the aging process as it removes daily dead skin cells which contributes to dryness and flakiness of the skin.
This process will also make the rest of your skincare products perform better. Imagine removing the outermost layer of the dead skin, making your cleansers, serums absorbed by your skin quickly.

Limit your alcohol intake
More than one alcohol drink a day increases the production oil your skin produce thus contributes to enlarge pores. Same goes with lack of sleep and smoking. Taking care of our health contributes to a healthier and more glowing skin.
Freeze your skin
Cool storage your beauty products for a more icy skin contact. Not only does it energizes the skin, it also helps minimize your pores. Blood vessels are constricted to make your face look flawless and less flushed.
You can also freeze fruit juices such as apples in an ice cube tray and gently massage your skin after for maximum results.
Wet wipes for emergency
This usually happens especially after exercise and working out when you’ve got no time for shower. It pays to have makeup removing wet wipes to immediately clean off dirt from sweat that can result to further acne breakouts. But this applies to emergency situations only as the continuous rubbing and friction applied to the face makes it more harmful than actually using a cleansing water or an actual facial wash.
Upgrade your bedtime routine
Your bedside table should consist of a foot cream, lip treatment, cuticle oil as part of your skincare routine. We should not only take care of our skin, but the rest of our body as well. Most often than not, our feet, lips and fingers are also prone to dryness thus it also should also receive the care it needs.
Lotion treat your hands and feet
Aside from that routine, another way to pamper your hands and feet is to slather with a thick lotion. Wrap it with plastic for at least 30 minutes for a softer, moisturize hands and feet. Do this at least once a week.
