Bring out your skin A-game with Huda Kattan’s 5 skincare rules.
See when you are living in a country that has a sweltering temperature for at least 8 months of the year, it is bound to take a toll on you and your skin health. The skin is perpetually irritated, parched, dried, dehydrated which causes the skin to lose its natural glow. This means your skin needs double the care and should be given as much importance as you give to perhaps drinking water and brushing teeth. Thankfully, Huda Kattan, the beauty mogul is on the same page as us when it comes to skincare and believes the skin can replenish if correct skincare rules are followed.
Let’s see what the Beauty mogul ride-or-die 5 skincare rules are.
Rule # 1 Always Double Cleanse At Night:
When the skin is covered in makeup, sunscreen, and grime, the last thing you want to do is to sleep with it. Yikes, that’s a big no-no!! Nurture your skin by giving it the gift of double cleansing. Double cleansing is a method of cleansing your face twice. First with an oil-based or micellar cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser that is designed for your skin type. Huda Kattan recommends always use warm water, never too hot! Massage your skin for one minute with each cleanse.
Rule # 2 Layer Your Products The Right Way:
Investing in skincare is thrilling and so full of promise but equally frustrating if the skin isn’t bringing its A-game even after spending so much. And the only reason could be not layering the skincare products in the correct order. Yes, it might sound military but the way you layer your skincare products makes a huge difference in how they work.
The most important thing is to ensure your skin is completely clean before you apply any hydrating lotions or oils. Huda Kattan suggests applying the most lightweight formulas first so they can be easily absorbed without the barrier of heavier creams.
Rule # 3 Know Your Skin Type:
Everyone’s skin is unique and beautiful in its own way. Understanding your skin type means you can find the best products that will work for your skin. Basically, there are five types of skin.
- Normal is a well-balanced skin, not too dry not very oily.
- Dry gives a very dehydrated look and is generally rough, dry, and flaky skin.
- Oily refers to skin that has excess oil mostly on the T- zone.
- Combination has areas that are both oily and dry.
- Sensitive varies widely from person to person but is often characterized by visible redness and dryness.
Rule # 4 Exfoliate:
When the skin looks dull and dead, exfoliation comes to the rescue. That’s right! Exfoliation will bring your skin to a natural fresh state. According to skincare experts, exfoliation a regular exfoliation habit increases the skin’s radiance, clarity, and youthfulness, and that’s just the start. It unclogs your pores, prevents acne, helps Other Skincare Products Penetrate Deeper, and helps with skin turnover. So, what you waiting for! Bask at the moment with exfoliation.
P.S Huda Kattan suggests applying gentle pressure while scrubbing and use warm water.
Rule # 5 Never forget SPF:
Forgetting Sunscreen is a cardinal skin sin. Are we being dramatic? No! why because 90% of your sin aging comes from sun exposure. An SPF in summers and winters, while stepping outside, inside the home, and even on cloudy days, sunscreen is extremely important. An SPF will sit on the surface of your skin acting as a protective barrier against the sun, so you should always apply it last. Huda Kattan recommends slathering sunscreen after every two hours.
All in all, if you keep following these skincare rules, that have been suggested by the beauty mogul Huda Kattan herself, your skin will thank you and you will surely see a lasting difference
