#1: Always wash your hands before touching your face to prevent transferring any bacteria or dirt you might unknowingly have collected along the day. This will help prevent unwanted breakouts.

#2: Drink at least eight glasses of water. This will boost your lymphatic drainage, which in turn helps to get rid of toxins and waste that can cause premature ageing.

#3: Get at least six hours of sleep at night, and no – napping in the afternoon doesn’t count. Your skin is in repair mode at night, and sleeping will help your body rejuvenate and heal damages accumulated in the day.

#4: Don’t eat salty food in the evening. This will lead to water retention and can cause your face to look bloated and puffy the morning after.

#5: Sleeping on your side or stomach can lead to constant friction that cause an early onset of fine lines and wrinkles. Try to rest on your back instead.

#6: Change your pillowcase at least once a week. Your face releases sebum as your sleep, which accumulates on your pillow. This may lead to bacteria build-up, which can cause breakouts.
