A good skin care regimen with quality products goes a long way toward making you look more refreshed and youthful throughout your life. These tips will help you keep your skin looking its best:

Tip #1: Be gentle to your skin

Your face should be cleansed daily to eliminate oil, pollutants, and makeup. But using harsh cleansers and scrubs that strip your skin of its natural oils can lead to dryness, flaking, and increased signs of aging over time. Be kind to your face, and choose a quality cleanser without irritating ingredients designed to clean gently.

Tip #2: Choose beverages wisely

Excess sodium (found in many diet sodas) and sugar (found in soda, juice, sports drinks, and many coffee drinks) take a toll on your body and skin. Sodium can make your skin look puffy, while excess sugar intake can damage your skin’s collagen. Switch to drinking more water throughout the day to keep your skin looking supple. Tea is also a good choice, as it contains polyphenols and antioxidants that help fight skin damage.

Tip #3: Wear sunscreen

You hear doctors say it all the time, and it’s worth repeating because it’s one of the most important things you can do for your skin. Wear sunscreen every day. Apply sunscreen even when it’s raining, cloudy, and on days you won’t be outside much. With all the elegant sunscreen formulas available today, you don’t have to settle for a product that feels greasy, sticky, or looks white on your skin. Find a sunscreen you enjoy using, and slather it on. If you need help choosing a sunscreen, ask an aesthetician for product recommendations.

Tip #4: Be choosy about makeup

If you’re going to wear makeup every day, why not choose brands that are actually good for your skin? The natural ingredients in quality mineral makeup allow your skin to breathe, protect it from irritation, and won’t contribute to worsened skin problems. In fact, minerals can have a soothing effect on the skin and help it look better over time! You’ll be able to look radiant and cover imperfections all while doing something good for your complexion. That’s a true multi-tasker.

When you wake up to great skin, you set yourself up for a great day. If your skin doesn’t look as smooth, radiant, or as youthful as it used to, you can do something about it.
