Always wear sunscreen, even on cloudy days.
Choose a makeup that has an SPF of 15 or higher and wears it every single day.
If you don’t wear makeup, use a moisturizing sunscreen on a daily basis to protect your face and any exposed skin.
When you were younger, your mom probably only puts sunscreen on you when you were in the pool or at the beach, but today, you need it every single day.
The sun’s UV rays are strong enough to burn your skin on even a cloudy day.
You will also need to reapply sunscreen after you have been active, which includes swimming or any type of exercise where you are sweating.
2. Massage Your Face
While you are cleaning off the day’s makeup and dirt, gently massage your face. This will help with circulation and help you achieve a beautiful radiance.
Always use circular motions when you massage your face, applying cleanser and foundation. Go slow, there is no need to rush or be harsh with your touch. Tender and small circles will bring the blood to the near surface and give you that healthy glow.
3. Use Products in the Correct Order
There is an order to use skin care products on your face. You should adhere to the order each and every time you take care of your face. This will vary a little in the morning to the evening, but it is basically the same list.
1. Makeup remover
3. Mild exfoliation
5. Treatments – Retinol, acne lotions, anti-aging serums, etc.
8. Eye Creams
4. Take Care of Your Insides
If you smoke, stop. If you eat junk food, stop. If you don’t drink water, start.
Smoking is not only bad for your lungs and other organs, but it will also make your skin drier, harder and look older. Your skin won’t be able to absorb moisturizers and other products as well if you smoke.
Eating a healthy plant-based diet or limiting your meat intake will keep your skin soft and supple. You need to keep your body and your skin hydrated to keep that youthful and healthy look.
5. Change Your Sleep Position
If you sleep on your stomach or side, your face is getting creases from the pillow. Over time, these creases and fine lines will become permanent.
Sleep on your back to give your face a break. Additionally, gravity will take over and pull your face towards the pillow, almost like an instant facelift.
Be kind to your skin. It’s the largest organ and the only one you will ever have.
