These are the basics tips on how to maintain a clear skin
· Start washing your face daily. Start a routine morning and night.
· Don’t pop your pimples, let it go naturally. Picking your pimple can have bad side effects.
· Drink Plenty of Water. Drink up to 8 glasses of water a day.The extra fluid helps you flush out toxins and waste.
· Drink Green Tea. Green tea is full of antioxidants and nutrients which can help your body fight acne. Aim to drink at least 2-3 cups a day
· Maintain a healthy diet and try to exercise more often. Eating fruits and vegetables will help your body and skin stay healthy. Exercise keeps your blood flow pumping and helps you get a good nights rest
1.For Dry Skin
Winter really has a bad effect on the skin, especially for those with dry skin. It cracks ,dries and flakes the skin , due to the windy and cold chill air that we go through. It's always best to make sure that your skin is getting the right treatment. Here is a few D.I.Y, mask you can make yourself at home for so much less.

This mask is known to help brighten your skin and fight against acne, leaving your skin smooth and clear. Cut up a slice of tomato and mix it with a little bit of honey. Its optional to put it in a blender to make it more smoother. Once a paste has formed, apply this on face leaving it on for 15 minutes , then wash it off.
Oats and Honey Mask
2. For Oily Skin

Oily skin tends to clog pores and are more prone to acne so its always good to find cleansers and mask that will help tone out your skin and avoid getting clogged pores. These are a few masks that I have tried before and actually do work. Oily skin can be identified , if you appear oily even after applying makeup, and if your skin still appears oily within an hour of washing your face.

Mix about 8 strawberries(cut in half),1 tbs. of yogurt (plain), 1 egg white and a few drops of lemon.Mash the strawberries with a fork and beat the egg white until it becomes foamy, then mix this in with the yogurt and lemon drops until they become a smooth paste. Apply to face for 15 minutes, avoiding the eye area and rinse with lukewarm water.
