Steps to Beautiful Skin for the Summer February 22 2016, 0 Comments

Everyone wants clear flawless Summer skin, and now is the time to start by taking these steps:


-Up your water intake, today!  
Water will do more than just give you flawless skin, but it's one of the simplest ways to get gorgeous skin.  Replace your sugary drinks with water, and if you are going out on the town, drink extra water to compensate for that liquor!

-Get a clear skin routine and stick to it!
It's super hard to get a skin routine and stick to it, but it is vital to your skin's health.  Ideally you will have a wash, a toner, a moisturizer, a spot treatment, and a night treatment.  However, skincare is expensive and hard to find the perfect products for each individual, so start off AT LEAST with a wash and a moisturizer.  A great system to have is to wash your face at night with a gentle cleanser (I recommend the skin perfecting soap for oily skin, and skin perfecting mask used as a wash for dry skin) and follow up with toner, followed by a heavy moisturizer (skin perfecting nightly treatment, skin perfecting milk, rose milk, goodnight treatment) in the evening. In the morning try to stay away from washing your face and instead rinse your face with water, or if you must use something more use a toner, and follow up with a moisturizer.  Try to use a scrub and a mask 2-3 times a week usually in the evening.  

-Change your eating habits
This is a huge one, similar to water, that is seemingly simple, but will help a ton.  Try substituting one of your meals for a "green smoothie."  Which just means lots of leafy greens, an apple, coconut water, celery, & a banana.  That will make a huge difference.  Of course you don't HAVE to do that exact smoothie, but any sort of veggie filled smoothie will do!

-Clean items that touch your face
Think about all the items that touch your face on a regular basis!  Your phone, your makeup brushes, pillow cases, face towels.  Keep these items clean regularly!  Including your hands!

-Do not sleep in makeup!
I know you know, you know  I know, we all know, yet we still all can make this horrid mistake.  Avoid this at all costs!

-Love yourself through it all
None of us are perfect.  Even those with the most beautiful skin get breakouts.  Be patient with yourself.  Give it all time.  Nothing will happen overnight, and for a lot of us beautiful skin takes work, like most other things.
