Show, how do you keep your skin clean and clear? Today, I’ll show you some easy secrets and give you a guide to flawless skin. Ready to learn the tricks of the trade?
Moisturize and exfoliate – There are thousands of skin care products out there. They all claim to reduce the aging process or brand themselves as a miracle cure. They also cost a fortune! All you need is a fantastic moisturizer. Find one that isn’t too oily and works with your skin type. Mary Kay’s Timewise Moisturizer for oily to Combo skin is my holy grail; it does amazing things for my skin! I apply it within twenty seconds of washing your face or getting out of the shower for the best results. I also recommend hunting out a good exfoliating cream to tackle your oily pores. Once again, Mary Kay has saved my day with their microdermabrasion scrub!
Medical treatments. – Rather than struggle through a number of different regimes every morning, you consider medical treatments. These are non-invasive procedures that help take care of your skin. Search for a medical spa close to you and see what treatments are available. Everything from derma peels to rejuvenation are available, and it can work wonders. The procedures are often quick and easy; you can make an appointment during your lunch break! I have had several derma peels before and they make a huge difference in my skin!
Makeup tricks – When it comes to skin, I often tend to layer my makeup to hide imperfections. But, I’ve learned that it’s important to give your skin a break from heavy make-up once in a while! Your pores need to breathe, so a more natural approach is needed to alternate your routine with. Always start with a primer that suits your skin type. Then apply a small amount of foundation or a BB cream. If possible, avoid matte colors and thick foundation. It will clog your pores and can cause break outs!
Sunscreen – People often ask ‘what’s the best anti-aging cream out there?’ The simple answer is sunscreen. The sun does more damage to your skin than anything else out there. If you’re looking for a quick way to preserve your natural beauty, apply a simple sunscreen every day. It’s particularly important during the summer. My answer? Mary Kay’s Timewise Day Solution! I know, another Mary Kay product, but I love their skin care products and their day solution has SPF 30 built into it!
Lip balm – I know I often forget about my lips when looking after our skin. I use lip scrubs and chapstick as frequently as possible and I always keep a moisturising lip balm handy.
Water and diet – Finally, there are few skin treatments as powerful as water. Staying hydrated keeps your skin cells healthy and your pores clear. Fruit and vegetables also hold all the vitamins and minerals you need. Want the best of both worlds? Infuse your water with cucumber, mint leaves or strawberries!
Flawless, natural skin is not easy to achieve; I’ve struggled for years to find the perfect skin care routine. I’ve learned that it’s a combination of diet, skincare and makeup tricks to get my skin looking great! If you follow these tips, I promise your natural glow will burst out!
