6 Steps for Healthier Looking Skin
Glowing, radiant skin is easier than you might think when you follow these 6 simple steps for your best looking complexion yet!
1: Get to know your skin
Your complexion is happiest when it gets what it wants. Learn your skin type and use products formulated for your unique needs to keep your complexion looking balanced.
2: Catch some zzz’s
Dark circles and puffy eyes are tell-tale signs of a late night, but your eyes aren’t the only part of your face to show fatigue. Routinely missing out on a full night’s sleep means your body isn’t getting the down time it needs to repair skin, so stop binge watching Stranger Things and GO TO BED! Need help drifting off? Try rubbing Sleepy Sleep™ Skin Stick over temples, pulse points, and the soles of your feet—it’s infused with lavender oil to help you unwind.
3: Drink up!
Your body can’t function without water, and when you’re dehydrated your skin shows it in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness. Cut back on the caffeine (or double up on the water) for younger looking skin. Bonus: now you have a reason to buy even more LaCroix®.
4: Eat your veggies
It’s true what they say—you are what you eat—so help nourish your skin from the inside out with plenty of fruits and vegetables. They contain essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that your body needs to help build and repair skin cells. Make it a goal from now on to pack your plate with more green goodness for a glowing complexion.
5: Keep it clean
Cleansing and exfoliating play key roles in keeping skin clear because they help remove dirt and oil that can clog pores, plus help whisk away dead skin cells that make your complexion look dull. We’re big fans of BFF: Best Face Forever™ Exfoliating Face Wash in the morning (its peppermint and grapefruit essential oils give skin a refreshing wake up) with scrubby eco-beads, then Bare it All™ Simple Micellar Face Wipes at night. They remove makeup, tone, and moisturize all in one, because when you’re tired, who wants a night routine that takes forever?
Pro tip: Cleanse your face in a circular motion, working upward from your jaw to your hairline.
6: Hands off!
Think about all the things you touch in a day: door knobs, your cell phone, lunch, your computer, money, your kids, the car, groceries…you get the idea. Now image that stuff all over your face. Ew. Avoid touching your face throughout the day to cut back on bacteria and grime that can clog pores and make you more prone to breaking out.
See, there’s no fancy products or expensive treatments you need to get your best skin yet, just a few simple steps will give you a healthier looking complexion in no time!
