Our guest editor Rabab Mahir, a beauty content creator, has some helpful tips that will improve your skincare regime and get you glowing.
"As a skincare advocate, I believe that taking really good care of your skin on a daily basis will majorly benefit you in the long run. Not only will you prevent skin problems such as mature aging, acne scarring or hyperpigmentation, but will also save you money in the future. There are some other things you can do aside from removing your makeup every night before bed (don’t get me wrong, this is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking healthy and glowy), like investing in some new products, to update your skincare regime and get your skin back in the game!
