4. DO A SKIN FAST
Skin specialist Dr. Terry Loong believes everyone can benefit from a twice-a-year three-week skin fast, using only a gentle cleanser and sunscreen. Moisturisers often sit on the surface of skin, tricking it into thinking it’s hydrated. It then stops producing natural hydration, leading to dryness, meaning our oil reserves kick in and cause breakouts. “By cutting it out, the skin’s hydrating and repair mechanism can reboot,” explains Dr. Loong. “It will take a few days to adjust (skin will either feel oily or dry).” You can use serum if necessary; they’re water-based, so won’t sit on the skin.
