Washing your face in the morning is essential, as you may not realize it, but your pillow and bed can also be one of the top breeding grounds of bacteria. Hence, before you put your makeup on for work, be sure that you are not piling up makeup on your face while trapping all the excess dirt and germs that you are unable to remove.

5. Get some good night's sleep

No matter how busy or heavy your workload may be, do take some time off and value your sleep. It has been found that the advent of smartphones is what’s keeping people sleepless, and not the heavy workload that they have to face. If you have any stress or problem that you are facing, spending hours and hours on your social media accounts before you go to bed will never be a solution; you will just end up feeling tired; hence,  you wake up looking older and more tired than you are.

A good night's sleep is always one of the best ways for you to refresh your emotions, your mind, and your body as well.

6. Put on some UV protection

If you have the time only to put one product on your face right after you wash your face, choose a product that has UV protection, preferably SPF 30 or higher. UV can be found in almost any cosmetic of your choice, such as the following:

  • Moisturizer
  • Toner
  • Foundation
  • BB or CC Cream

Choosing a product that has UV protection will help guard your skin against the harmful rays of the sun. You may not be aware of it, but it is your exposure to the sun that is making your skin look even duller and look older than it is.

7. Avoid vices
