Hey Divas! There’s no better time than the present to really spend some quality time on your skincare! We admit it’s sometimes difficult to know where to start and what to do to get the best out of your skin. There are so many different products and stages to it all, so it can be easy to overlook what will improve the appearance and feel of your skin. Let’s face it, everyone’s skincare routine is unique. But we’ve got some tips and tricks to get you on the right track to having a face that has you saying, “I woke up like this!”
Scrub Your Lips. Are your puckers dry like the Sahara? While you’re in the bathroom exfoliating and moisturizing your skin, you do the same for your lips. This lip scrub is really good from Herbal Dynamics Beauty. It effectively hydrates and softens your lips by gently exfoliating and providing a plump and smooth appearance. Try using this lip scrub at the beginning of your skincare routine so that you can apply lipstick or lip gloss to your plump and moisturized lips.
Exfoliate! You can apply all the right products in all the right ways, but if the top layer of your skin consists of all dead and dry skin cells, then your face will still appear dull, so you gotta throw some you exfoliation in your skincare routine. According to an article in TSBeauty, “Exfoliating is crucial to help prevent sweat, bacteria, and dirt getting underneath the top layers of your skin.” Doing this will remove the barrier of dead skin cells that are preventing your skincare products to soak into the deeper layers of your skin. Meaning that you will get more out of your skincare routine.
Deal With That Sun! Us brown gals assume that protection from the sun is only essential during the summer and when the sun is shining bright. But SPF should be something that we wear all year round as an essential part of our daily skincare routine. There are many moisturizers available that have an SPF protection integrated into the formula, meaning that we can protect ur skin while giving it the moisture it needs.
Hit The Pillow. One of the best ways to improve the appearance of your skin? Make sure that you are getting enough sleep each night! Your skin recovers while you sleep, so the more rest you get, the more chance of your skin has of repairing itself from the damage caused by the elements throughout the day. Of course, how you sleep is important! Cotton and other fibers can rob your skin and hair of much-needed moisturizer, so invest in a silk or satin pillowcase to protect your skin while it repairs itself.
Stay Hydrated. Moisturizing your skin from the outside is an essential part of a good skincare routine; keeping it moisturized from the inside as well is just as important. Keeping hydrated is essential not only for our overall health and well-being but also for the appearance of our skin. Make sure you’re drinking around two liters of water a day!
