I leave very little room in the morning to get ready. I definitely hit the snooze button as many times as possible before I absolutely HAVE to get up. Anyone else?? I’ve crafted my skincare routine down to a fine science because of this. And really, it’s what you do during the rest of your day that helps out your skin. I’m sharing my quick skincare tips with you today and maybe you can whittle down your skincare routine to a fine science like me. Cause let’s face it…we’re girls on the go. And before you get to the tips, if you are needing some face washing advice, I’m sharing tips my mom taught me on how to properly wash my face. If getting carded at the movies is any clue, you’ll definitely want to check out those tips too!
BEST SKINCARE TIPS
TIP #1: Drink water.
First things first. Drink lots of water. No joke. Our bodies are made up of so much water and it takes a lot of water just to keep everything running smoothly. Plus, our skin needs water to stay hydrated. Hydration is so key, y’all. So don’t skimp on the water!! Go grab a glass of it right now!
TIP #2: Use an anti-aging moisturizer.
Another way to keep your skin hydrated is by using a moisturizer. Bonus if it ALSO includes anti-aging properties like Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. Let’s face it ladies, we are not getting any younger. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream visibly reduces the appearance of lines, boosts hydration, and brightens skin on day ONE. Your skin is noticeably firmer with improved elasticity after 2 weeks of use, and after 4 weeks it reduces the look of up to 10 years of wrinkles! That’s a win-win in my beauty arsenal!! This beauty product is rocking my socks!! I am LOVING how my face feels and looks since using in the morning and at night. (Bonus tip…if you have extra moisturizer on your hands from applying, add it to your neck and the tops of your hands! This has become second nature to me and applying the product on my hands/neck is like receiving mini spa treatments twice a day!)
Want more research behind this amazingly affordable drug store beauty product (it’s under $30 ladies!)?? Check out this independent test from the Good Housekeeping Institute. It demonstrated that Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream outperformed 10 top prestige creams, one with a $440 price tag! That is AMAZING, especially since Olay can be found in the drugstore and at a reasonable price (under $30!)
TIP #3: Wear an SPF.
I’ve heard yays and nays on this tip over time but it’s still one that I practice daily and highly believe in. Having to visit the dermatologist every 3-6 months to check on my skin (inherited moles from both sides of my family) is part of my everyday life. Wearing SPF is a must for me to give me peace of mind that I’m working diligently to protect my skin. So hydrate to keep youthful and SPF to further protect it!
TIP #4: Treat yourself to a facial.
Each week, treat your face to mini-trip to the spa. Slather on a face mask of your choice, relax for 15-30 minutes and let the face mask work to healing/treating/moisturizing/calming your skin.
TIP #5: Exfoliate.
If you notice your skin looks a little dull, try out an exfoliator. But be gentle with it!! Remember how delicate your skin tissues are, especially around your eyes. Apply gently and remember to only exfoliate about once a week or every other week.
