Having glowing skin that people envy is on everyone's to do list, no matter if you're 15 or 45,
having perfect skin is something that everyone desires. But how do you get flawless skin when
you're dealing with skin issues, the stresses of everyday life, or simply just don't know where to
start? Well hopefully these simple yet important tips will guide you on your path to beautiful,
glowing, and healthy skin!
Clean your face on a regular basis
In order for your skin to be healthy, you have to make sure it is clean first. Develop a routine in
the morning and at night by using products specifically tailored to your skin type. For instance I
have very oily skin plus eczema, so I clean my face with dove soap, followed by a cleaning with
Cetaphil cleansing scrub, and then apply my daily moisturizer. It's best to consult your
dermatologist if you don't know what your skin type is so they can recommend the products
that are best for you.
Don’t sleep with your makeup on!
The worst thing you can do to your skin is to leave your makeup on at night. By doing this, the
makeup seeps into your pores which can cause irritation. Remove makeup each night with a
gentle makeup remover or olive oil mixture to ensure your face won't get irritated.
Clean your makeup brushes
This will ensure that you are not reusing dirty makeup over and over again which can cause skin
irritation and even infection. A good way to clean your makeup brushes is with a dishwashing
detergent and olive oil mixture.
Get a good night sleep
When It comes to your body, not just with skin, but with hair and nails as well, the overall
health and appearance isn't just determined by what you use, but can be determined by if
you're treating your body right. By getting a good night sleep, at least 7 hours, your body will
have the strength to promote your healthy skin.
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!
Exfoliating at least once every week or two (depending on your skin type) helps to get out the
dirt left over in your pores that you may have missed with your daily washings. I suggest a
sugar scrub which helps lift the dirt and gives you a gentle massage on the skin, leaving your
face feeling fresh.
Eating right, vitamins and water are your best friend
Vitamins help promote not only your skin's health, but your overall body's health and can give
your skin the extra boost it needs. Besides a daily supplement, ask your dermatologist what
other vitamins there are to help your specific skin type. On top of that, eating right and water is
the best thing you can do, Eating a balanced meal is obvious, but did you know we're suppose
to drink 8 glasses of water a day? I suggest getting a tall VOSS bottle in order to make this task
easier, it's re-usable because the bottle is glass, and you would achieve more than the
recommended amount of water by drinking just 3 refills of the bottle!
Leave your face alone!
If at all possible, don't touch your face throughout the day unless you really have to. Your
hands encounter millions of germs with a few minutes. By touching your face, you're only
causing your skin to be susceptible to dirt and germs. Besides, if you have makeup on I doubt
you want to mess up the hard work you did!
