The Truth About Skincare

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

When I wake up in the morning and take a look in the mirror, my skin is my initial concern.  As superficial as it may seem, appearance says a lot about a person.  Having healthy and well-treated skin will heighten your spirits on your most lackluster days.  Every woman can have beautiful skin, but this all depends on how well we take care of it.  Just start with these three simple tips that apply to all skin-types.

1.     Always Remove Your Makeup.  Before you go to bed, be sure that your face is makeup free.  Sleeping with makeup on can clog your pores overnight, but removing your makeup allows your pores to breathe.  In turn, you are avoiding that hassle of cleaning existent residue from your face the next morning.  But, more importantly, you are preparing the way for your consistently healthy skin!  For quick and easy makeup removal, I love to use Neutrogena’s Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes.  They are fast and leave no mess.

2.     Keep Your Face Clean.  It caught me by surprise that so many women do not wash their faces daily, primarily because it is time consuming.  Taking care of your skin is essential, and these 30 seconds of your time will make a difference for a lifetime!  It’s best to look for a cleanser that will address your skin’s specific issues, i.e., acne, dry skin, and oily skin.  When cleansing my face, I prefer to use Aubrey Organics Products.  These all-natural products are perfect for all skin types and leave your skin feeling better than ever.

3.    Always  Moisturize.  To pack in extra hydration, I always moisturize my skin.  This is very beneficial because hydration prevents further damage to the skin.  It is especially important to moisturize your skin before applying makeup and during extremely dry seasons.  Some makeup products contain chemicals that dry out your skin, and hydration plays a large roll in sealing in necessary moisture.  Dry seasons, such as winter, may cause the condition of your skin to fluctuate.  These are the times when moisturizers are you best friend, so don’t be afraid to apply a generous amount.

Whether you are on the go or in the comfort of your own home, you should always be sure to take great care of your skin and maintain a healthy skincare regimen.
