Everyone wants healthy, natural looking skin. Here are some tips that may lead you in that direction.
1—Stay Hydrated Inside Out
Our skin reflects what goes on inside of our body, if we don't get enough water, our skin looks dehydrated. Dehydration leaves our skin less appealing, dried, and dull. Our body requires at least 8 cups of water daily to remove the toxins and help achieve the glowing skin we want.
Tip: If you forget to drink water here is a tip to make your life easy. Break your day into 8 parts and set an alarm to remember at what time and how many glasses of water you are drinking in a day.
2—Wash Your Face Before Going to Bed
After a long tiring day many women go to bed without taking their makeup off. Cleansing your skin at night is more important than cleansing in morning because the day exposes our skin to sun, dirt, debris, makeup, and pollution.
These can get into pores and cause blemishes so washing at night can help your skin breath easily and stay blemish-free.
3—Toning and Moisturizing
A good toner helps to balance the pH level in your skin, which should be slightly acidic. They also help to remove any excess makeup or dirt on your face and detoxify your skin.
Before moisturizing your skin use an antioxidant serum loaded with vitamin C and D that avoid dehydration and aging. Applying serum right before applying moisturizer increases the moisturizing effect.
Without protection the above mentioned tips are useless. Use an SPF like Sun Love on a daily basis—even on cloudy days—because your moisturizer and makeup is not enough to protect your skin. It just takes a small amount of sunscreen on your face (including your eyes and lips).
Your skin cells have a natural life of 28 days. To bring up the natural new glowing skin, we suggest exfoliating once or twice a week with something like the the Kaolin Microexfoliant. Other than this, exfoliation results in increased stimulation, minimized pores, and fresh looking skin. The best body washes are ones that work well with your skin and can exfoliate it too!
