Cleaning your face may seem like a no brainer. However, many women miss this step in their routine if they aren’t feeling up to it or don’t feel like they had a day where their face might have gotten dirty. However, it doesn’t matter if you did or didn’t wear makeup, were out in the dirt or not, etc. You need to clean your face every single day! It’s most important to remember not to sleep in makeup. Bacteria can be caused from the dirt that builds up over the day, and this ends up clogging pores and forming into blackheads and blemishes. It’s best to use a gentle cleanser as part of your everyday routine. Make sure not to over scrub your face, and pat – don’t rub – dry!
Dead skin isn’t pretty skin. It can block the newest, most radiant skin from showing itself and making you look like a star! Exfoliating helps to shed your outermost layer of skin and reveal your healthy, softer skin underneath. You can exfoliate at home with an exfoliating product or tool, or go professional with a chemical peel. However, no matter what you choose, make sure not to over-exfoliate as it can cause irritation to the skin resulting in redness, puffiness, and sensitivity.
After cleansing and exfoliation, you still can’t leave out nourishment. You can nourish your skin in a few different manners, which include eating properly, applying specific serums, or taking certain supplements. When you give your skin the proper nutrients that it needs to rejuvenate and restore best PH levels, it will look and feel so much better. The proper nourishments are different for each and person, and a skincare professional can prescribe the correct regimen.
Hydration is key to a happy and healthy body. It is also key to happy and healthy skin. Hydration comes two-fold; you must drink enough water during the day as well as apply the right moisturizer on during the night. Hydrating your skin from both an internal and an external standpoint is key! Even if you feel that you have oily skin, it is still important to moisturize and hydrate.
It’s always smart to keep your skin from burning. This protects your skin from cancer, dark spots, and wrinkles. The best way to do this is to apply a layer of SPF daily and keep your skin away from the sun by covering up. Try to wear SPF that is labeled as “broad spectrum” and apply it underneath your makeup for added protection.
