With the vast number of choices in skincare and all of the skincare advice at your fingertips on the internet, it can get overwhelming and frustrating trying to put together the best routine for your skin.
The Bottom Line is..
Not having a SIMPLE routine is the killer of any good habit.
When things get overcomplicated, lets face it… we just don’t follow through because that’s human nature and we are busy. With so much advice and tips at your finger tips on the web, it’s hard to take every tip and put it all together in one cohesive skincare routine. For this reason, I am taking a minute to give you the basics of all good skincare routines, no matter what skincare line you choose. You should be doing the following in order to maintain good skin.
First know that whatever you do today, will determine what your skin looks like in 10 years. So even if you’re in your teens or 20’s and have no thought of where you will be in 10 years; just know this, one day you’ll be paying for that glowing tan you have today! 10 years will come and go in a flash (I know this from experience). You don’t want to show up at your high school reunions worried that the first thing anyone will think when they see you is “what happened to her, she used to be so cute”. Let’s make sure we do what’s best for our skin today so that we can welcome every new chapter of our lives with confidence.
“Don’t change you (forget fillers & botox)… just be the best YOU that you can be proud of”.
Start your healthy skin habits today so you can love your skin next week and thank your lucky stars for your beautiful, youthful skin 10 years from now!

EASY, SKIN TIPS FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN
If you wear makeup, wash your face twice.
- First to remove makeup.
- Second to remove dirt and dead skin cells
Don’t forget to moisturize areas that show your age and are often overlooked:
- Under chin
- Top of hands
- Fleshy skin at the front of your armpit
Don’t sleep face down to avoid pulling on your skin
Sleep with a silk pillow cover for a gentle material that does not pull on your skin
Always apply or wipe skin in an upward motion, never pull down on your skin
Minimize sun exposure, especially when driving
Make sure your hormones are balanced and your thyroid is healthy
Cut back on salt, processed food, dairy, bread, pasta, caffeine, and sugar
Go organic as much as you can with food and topicals
Exercise 30 minutes a day (take a walk if nothing else) to improve circulation
Instead of using a toner, you can use a PH balanced face wash
When drying off, pat your skin dry instead of wiping it dry
Wear as little makeup as possible (makeup changes your skin’s PH and clogs pores)
Take a multivitamin and collagen supplement to replace natural loss from aging
Try to stress less to avoid the skin damaging stress hormone, cortisol
Get 8+ hours of sleep
Drink 8+ cups of water
Positive self talk – you are a beautiful person and deserve happiness!
PLUS…. A smile makes everyone look better!
