#1: Rose water can help soothe irritated skin and calm redness.

#2: When travelling by plane, it’s important to wear sunscreen due to the intensity of the sun – especially if you’re by the window.

#3: Loose powder is great for counteracting a shiny complexion, but too much can highlight fine lines and wrinkles, so apply lightly – or opt for a mattifying makeup base instead.

#4: Lips tend to lose volume with age. To make your pout look fuller, go for lighter lipstick shades with
light-reflecting pigments.

#5: Those with sensitive skin should avoid using products with fragrances as they can cause irritation and allergic reactions.

#6: Drinking more water helps to flush out toxins that cause inflammation and blemishes.

#7: When applying skincare, the rule of thumb is to always use lighter, water-soluble serums before thicker, creamier products.

#8: Get sufficient sleep for a healthy, rosy complexion. Sleep deprivation decreases blood circulation, which can make one appear pale and washed out in the morning.

#9: If you have dry skin, avoid hot showers. The heat strips skin of its natural essential oils.

#10: If you suffer from hormonal breakouts, try avoiding alcohol and dairy, both of which can worsen the problem.
