Healthy skin requires the right amount of cleansing and nourishing; and while nourishing it internally through your diet is primary, it is also equally important to follow a skincare regimen at night followed by using a face mask that will work from the outside. Moisturise your skin on a regular basis and ensure that it remains protected from the harmful sun rays at all times by using a sunscreen, before stepping out.
