We all know women with gorgeous skin. Don’t you just have to ask what she’s been doing? Here are 20 essential everyday tips to help get that flawless skin you’re craving.
#1. Never Goes to Sleep Without Cleansing. There’s a reason your mother always told you to get your beauty rest! Your skin does most of it’s healing while you sleep. That is why it is essential to remove all the dirt, oil, and makeup from your face before you go to bed every night.
#2. Always Wear SPF. When we say always, we mean always. Sun damage is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to fine lines, sun spots, and wrinkles. Contrary to popular belief, the time of year has nothing to do with wearing SPF. The sun can damage your skin even in the winter. Be sure to put it on each and every day, and reapply every few hours!
#3. Stay Hydrated. Did you know that those superficial fine lines you may be seeing are often caused by dehydration? Maintain a routine of drinking at least 8 cups of water daily to ensure a healthy body and plump, beautiful skin.
#4. Value Antioxidants. Antioxidant rich ingredients are great for protecting from aging, so make sure to eat a lot of them and use masks and lotions with them on your skin.
#5. Eye Cream & Lots of it! Eyes are not only your windows to the world but often the windows to your age! Use eye cream (and lots of it) day and night.
#6. Invest in TLC. To some, a facial might seem like a luxury expense, but it is actually a great way to keep your skin looking clear and youthful. Whether you get one once a year or once a month, your skin deserves the pampering.
#7. Follow Instructions. Read the back of each of your skin care products before use. Following instructions is critical for a safe routine and beautiful results!
#8. Wear Sun Glasses. Sunglasses are essential in protecting your eyes from UV damage. Sunglasses also prevent fine lines from forming under your eyes from constant squinting. So go forth, and indulge on that perfect pair.
#9. Get Your Beauty Sleep. Get a full 8 hours every night!
#10. Eat Healthy. A healthy diet is essential for a beautiful complexion. If you’re craving something sweet, just remember a little bit is fine in moderation.
#11. Exercise. Increased circulation is good for your overall health, and your skin.
#12. Never Exercise in Makeup. Forget about dressing up for the gym! It’s a proven fact that no one looks cute covered in sweat. Make-up free is always the way to be to keep a healthy glow when exercising.
#13. Know Your Skin Type. Find and use products designed specifically to work with your unique skin needs.
#14. Be Mindful of Cleanliness. Constantly touching your face, using a dirty cell phone screen or dirty makeup brushes, and sleeping on old pillowcases are all causes for breakouts and irritation!
#15. Know What Works & What Doesn’t. Trial and error are important to finding the right products for your personal skin needs.
#16. Exfoliate. Not too often, not too little, but just the right amount!
#17. Avoid Junk Food. Excess oil and sugar can wreak havoc on your complexion.
#18. Be on the Lookout for the Latest & Greatest. Keep an eye out for the most cutting edge products to try.
#19. Know What Makeup Products Flatter You. Not all makeup products work well with every skin type. Use the products that flatter your skin type.
#20. Have Your Routine Down Pat. And never skip it!
