We are all after the same thing, beautiful, fresh looking skin. I wish I paid more attention to my skincare routine when I was younger, I feel like I am playing catch up now that I am older. Good products are definitely a factor but there are a few other things I do to keep my skin looking great and today I am sharing them with you.
Clean Your Makeup Brushes
One of the best ways to reduce clogged pores and pesky breakouts is to regularly clean your makeup brushes and sponges. Sounds easy enough, right? That's becauseit is. Set aside a designated day each week for the task. Believe me your skin will thank you for it.
Probably the most effective way to get healthier-looking skin is also the simplest— drink more water. This one is obviously good for you in general, but when it comes to optimizing your complexion, proper hydration can help your skin retain its elasticity, flush out unwanted toxins, clear up dry patches and just give a clearer appearance overall. If the thought of drinking more water seems daunting, you can always download a water-tracking app to help you meet your daily goals, and if the taste just doesn't appeal to you, try infusing your agua with fruits for a more yummy experience. Bonus: You'll be adding extra skin-boosting vitamins to your diet by going this route, especially if lemons are your thing (hello, Vitamin E!).
Swap Your Regular Pillow Case for a Silk One
This is something I've yet to incorporate into my own life, but I'm planning on doing so soon and here's why— no matter how hard I try to sleep on my back, I always wake up with my face pressed against my pillow. And anyone who does the same will know the result: sleep creases all across your face. Not a cute look first thing in the morning, and not great for protecting your skin against premature aging. Plus silk pillowcases are hypoallergenic and said to help your skin retain moisture, so I personally am running out of excuses for not buying one yet.
Find a Skincare Regimine You Like... and Stick to It
Sometimes half the battle toward clear, healthy skin is stability. As a blogger I try so many products and I find this is sometimes so hard on my skin. I really feel you need to give your skincare routine atlest 4 weeks in order to see If its something your skin will love. I use the Elemis skin care line and I have yet to fins anything else that I love as much so I find myself always going back to that. I do however change my routine with every season. Elemis has such a great variety of products and it really helps in putting together the perfect skin care routine for each season.
Loading up on fruits and veggies, healthy fats like avocados and nuts, and cutting back on processed and high-glycemic foods can do wonders for not only your overall health, but for your skin as well.
