Easy Skin Care Tips

Even though I haven’t worked as an esthetician for years, to this day I still check out people’s eyebrows to see if they need shaping. Ha! I also see skin damage and some strange things on my husband’s skin.

One time he had something on his back that I nicknamed “the barnacle” and I told him to get it checked out but he wouldn’t. It fell off a couple of years later and he was like See, I don’t need a doctor. Buttmunch.

1. Water – If you want to know how much water you really need, divide your weight by 2 and that’s how many ounces of water you should be drinking daily.

2. Take the make-up off at night – Your skin rejuvenates while you’re sleeping so anything left on your face like make-up or a case of an oily face, all that gunk goes down into your skin while you sleep.

3. Whatever type of skin you have, even oily skin, moisturize – one of the problems with oily skin is that some who have it don’t think they need to moisturize. It actually makes your oily skin worse when you don’t moisturize.

4. Facial cleansing – When cleaning your face in the morning and at night, first wash your face, twice in a row. The first wash gets rid of the surface dirt. It deep cleans your skin the second time. Then use a non-alcoholic toner to remove any remaining facial cleanser film and to prep your skin for the next step. Lastly, use a moisurizer during the day and night cream, well, at night, of course. Night cream is thicker than regular moisturizers and all that hydrating goodness goes down into your skin.

5. Use sunscreen– I’m guilty when it comes to forgetting sunscreen but even when it’s a cloudy day, you can get sun damage if you’re not using at least an SPF 15. If you’re using a foundation with spf, the amount you use for your face isn’t enough coverage from the sun. You need to supplement with a sunscreen.

    Great tips Elle, I was so pleased to see water at the top of the list too. My skins never softer and clearer than when I drink lots of water. You just reminded me to get back into the habit again!
