1. Make sure you drink enough water each day

Water is always good for the body. It does not only keep your skin hydrated, but it also elimintes the harmful toxins from your body.

2. Cut back on your intake of coffee, alcohol and smoking

Coffee, alcohol and smoking are known to cause the skin cells to dry out. By refraining from consuming them, you can keep your skin properly hydrated.

3. Use a mild facial wash

Make sure that you wash your face every night before you go to bed. It is important to remove any makeup or other products that you had on that day. The best way to remove all products is by using olive oil. Wash your face with a mild facial cleanser after using the oil. This type of cleanser will release toxins and bacteria from your skin and let the pores open up and breathe.

4. Exfoliate your skin

Try exfoliating your skin with sugar. You can do this by adding a small amount of sugar to your facial cleanser. Rub the mixture into your skin in a circular motion and massage your face gently. The sugar will dissolve the oils that are holding your dead skin cells together. It will break up the dead skin cells allowing them to be removed from your face. After you have exfoliated your skin, you should splash your face with cold water and gently pat dry. It is best to exfoliate your face at least twice a week.

5. Keep your skin moisturized

After you have washed your face you need to moisturize it. This is especially important to those with oily and dry skin. Make sure that the moisturizer you choose is not heavy and is made from a water-based solution. This will keep the skin hydrated without clogging the pores. Johnny recommends using a scent free one if you have sensitive skin.
