3 Nontraditional Beauty Hacks for a Clearer Complexion
Have skin issues suddenly snuck up on you? Relax, this problem might be easier to resolve than you think. We all know to be wary of germs in public places, but what about in our homes? You would be amazed all the ways we get in the way of our own clear complexions. Below are three hacks to ensure you're not self-sabotaging your own skin.
Rikumo Chikuno Cube House Natural Air Purifier ($273)
In the same way that charcoal is used to cleanse our water, it naturally absorbs dust particles, odors, and pollutants—all awesome things if you're trying to clear up your skin. Just think of the money you'll save on those oxygen facials!
iPhones and laptops pick up all sorts of dirt from our handbags, desktops, coffee-shop visits, and everywhere else. All of that gunk then transfers to your face when you talk on the phone or type away then reapply lip gloss. It pays to be sanitary. Use a microfibre cloth and an electronics-safe wipe like Zeiss Pre-Moistened Lens Cleaning Wipes ($19). Lightly mist the cloth; never spray directly on electronics.
Facial cleansing wipes have become one of those late-night musts we can’t imagine giving up. While they're better than not washing off the day at all, those sudsy wipes are not exactly “cleaning” our face as well as we may have hoped. Think about it: The cleanser has to go someplace, and since we don’t want that “place” to be setting up shop in our pores, try rinsing your skin with cool water after using them. Because honestly, it only takes, like, three additional seconds.
