How To Get Gorgeous Skin

  • Don't go to bed with makeup on. Makeup left on overnight seeps into your pores, clogs them, and congests your skin. Make sure that you wash your face twice at the end of the day. Once to get the makeup off. A second time to wash the skin itself.
  1. Exfoliate twice a week. After washing your face at night, be sure to exfoliate. Use a delicate scrub a non-abrasive formula that will not irritate or scratch your skin. If you don't have one on hand, a tablespoon of sugar and champagne or oatmeal will work just fine.

  2. Use facial masks regularly. If possible, everyday is ideal. Again, if you don't have one on hand, make your own. Mashed banana or avocado is good. Plain yogurt also works well.

  3. Keep a treatment and moisturizer on your face, day or night. Put your skin first. After you wash it at night, put on some kind of skin treatment, whether it's alpha hydroxy acid, vitamin A or C, or any kind of special cocktail treatment. Beta hydroxy acid, salicylic acid, is a topical exfoliate that minimizes the appearance of aging. Let that sink in, then put a moisturizer over that. In the morning, do the same.

  4. Don't use the cheapest or most expensive cosmetics. I have experienced that the moderately priced cosmetics are the best. They get the job done, and the ingredients are usually very good. Face powder and foundation is the only items you may want to spend money on. Lipsticks and other facial makeup products do come in more selections of colors in pricier brands than drugstore brands. You have to keep trying various brands until you find something that works well for you.

  5. Hydrate your face throughout the day. Whether it's a commercial product, or one you make yourself (fill a spray bottle with distilled water, add a few drops of chamomile or rose essential oil, shake it gently before each use, and spray it on) hydrate your face, even over makeup, frequently throughout the day.

  6. Treat your face gently. Never pull, tug, or scrub your facial skin. Be very gentle when you clean it, moisturize it or makeup on it. This will lessen the chance that you'll damage your skin and get wrinkles.

  7. Keep your face covered when you're in the sun. As beautiful as you are never lets anyone see you her face when your in the sun. Slather on a high factor sunscreen, put on sunglasses, and a wide brimmed hat.

  8. Dehydration- It's important to drink at least eight glasses of water (or other non-carbonated, non-caffeinated beverages) daily to keep your skin moisturized, keep your hair healthy and keep your healthy glow.

  9. Eat fresh foods and drink lots of water. Stay away from too much "dead food" food that's basically not fresh and is processed, like chips. She always eat lots of veggies, fruits, nuts, and drinks tons of water.

  10. Let go of stress. Stress can show up on your face, no matter how well you take care of your skin. Do something your enjoy everyday, whether it's watching TV or going shopping. Your face reflects what's going on inside of your mind.

  11. SMOKING- Do not smoke. You already know it can kill you, but did you know that it causes hair in unwanted places, e.g. lip hair? Were you aware that it causes wrinkles and premature aging? It turns your teeth, skin, and fingernails a disgusting yellow over time.

  12. Lack of Sleep- When you don't sleep, you don't look your best. You're guaranteed to have puffy or dark circles underneath your eyes. Your body needs 7-8 hours every night to rejuvenate. Amount of sleep varies from person to person but 8 hours is about average. During this time your skin is repairing it's self. Using a great night moisturizer or serum right before doing to bed is an excellent idea.
