HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR SKIN COLOUR

There are 5 tested ways by which you can maintain your natural skin colour. The 5 steps below are approved by a dermatologist, so share this post with everyone you know.
BEWARE OF THE SUN
Sun exposure can be harmful especially from 10am to 4pm but if we can be realistic here, you will agree with me that we all can’t hole ourselves in the building because we try to avoid the sun. The sun releases Ultraviolet rays A and B and they are very harmful.
UVA are silent killers because they are responsible for Skin cancer (melanoma) while UVB rays are responsible for sunburn.
I don’t really want to scare you but this is the plain truth. Now here is the solution, always wear water-resistant known as broad spectrum, sunscreen with SPF 15 or SPF 30 especially if you live in Africa , Arabic countries or in other countries where the sun scorches like hell fire.
Here is a sunscreen you should consider:
Sun Dance sonnencreme
This is my preferred sunscreen and it works perfectly fine for me. You can get it here.
If you want to maintain your natural skin colour, you need to exfoliate to get rid of dead skin cells. The reason you should do this is to maintain a youthful glow and to make your skin radiant. You should know that some exfoliants contains whitening substance so always be on the look out for that. You can also invest in good AHA exfoliants. I wrote an in depth review of AHA Exfoliants here.
INVEST IN DEPIGMENTING CREAM (OPTIONAL)
This will go a long way for those who have dark spots on their faces as a result of acne or sunburns. This 30ml cream contains SPF 50 and can be used in the stead of a real spf. I always combine this cream with L’AVAYNNA vitamin c face serum, but I use ISIS PHARMA NEOTONE CREAM in the morning while I use the serum at night.
INVEST IN A GOOD MOISTURIZING CREAM AND SOAP
There are lots or moisturizing cream in the market and the tip is finding what your skin loves. I use Dove product sometimes because they contain fatty acids which are in fact the moisturizing properties. There other ones like Aveeno and if you have money to splurge, I will advice you use Creme de la Mer and your skin will witness another dimension of suppleness!
Drinking enough water cannot be overstated when we talk about skin care because water helps flush toxins from our system and keeps us hydrated. I always drink a bottle of water once I wake up and make sure to up my drinking level during the day. You can add a bit of lemon or garlic to your water if you are the type that doesn’t like to drink plain water.
