How often is it that while flipping through the pages of your favorite glossies, and scrolling through your Instagram feed, you stop to admire the gorgeous skin that beauties like Miranda Kerr, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift flaunt? You wish that by some miracle of the universe you wake up to spotless, smooth and glowing skin. The fact is that neither you nor any of these Tinseltown starlets have it easy when it comes to great skin; you’ve got to nurture and pamper it to see the results you want to see.

Here’s the ultimate beauty guide you should embrace – it’s the only one you need:

  1. Cleansing – The number one rule to good skin is to never hit the sack without cleansing. Begin by removing your makeup with cleansing milk or makeup remover. Follow it up by massaging your face with a face wash and rinsing it with lukewarm water.

  1. Toning –Thought you could give this step a miss? Here are reasons shouldn’t!Toning is an essential part of a skin care regimen because it removes the remaining bits of grime, oil, and debris left behind after cleansing. More importantly, a toner tightens your pores, prevents blackheads and breakouts and nourishes your skin while restoring its pH balance. After cleansing, dip a ball of cotton in a toner and dab it onto your face and neck.

  1. Moisturizing –Moisturizing your skin has both short and long-term perks. In the short run, it leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and fresh. In the long run, it prevents premature skin aging. Make sure your daytime moisturizer offers a minimum of SPF 15 protection. Your night cream should contain ingredients like retinol, collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin to help enliven your skin while you sleep. Take a dime-sized amount of moisturizer on your palm, dab it on your skin and massage it in an upward, circular motion.

Another great tip that those blessed with good skin swear by is drinking at least 10 glasses of water every day. Infuse it with cucumber, fruits and lemon if plain water is too unappetizing for you.
