Did you know that micro-exfoliating the skin is a simple trick to make sure your skin gets to absorb the most out of your skincare routine? Rationally, the more your younger skin is in contact with your choice of nourishing creams, the more it benefits from it! So if your skin is afraid of exfoliating beads or scrubs, use a sleeping pack to lift your skin and reveal a younger and fresher face every morning!

3. Belo Skincare AcnePro Pimple Gel – if your sleepless nights studying for an exam or preparing for a project led you to sporting a raging acne or pimple outbreak, it’s high time to add some spot treatment to your regimen. Although spot treatments can also be used during the day, it is more recommended to be included in an evening regimen since this leaves your skin in complete restorative focus, while also being kept unexposed to environmental stressors like pollution and sweat.

Among many pimple fighting gels available in the market, Beo Skincare AcnePro Pimple Gel reigns high with its unique Purified Bee Venom active ingredient, which is clinically tested to moderate acne breakouts. This pimple fighting gel is also oil-free, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic; thus making it a sensitive skinned maiden’s best friend.

Cellulite refers to the visible chicken skin texture under your skin, and is a common problem for women, both young and old.
