Everyone knows at least one woman whose skin is seemingly perfect. She walks into the room, her face radiant and glowing, and you think, how does she do it? Is this some sort of sorcery? Is she spending a massive amount of cash on creams? Well here’s the thing girls, her secret is a simple one- her skin is flawless because she’s hit the nail right on the head when it comes to the best daily routine.
She uses the right cleanser for her skin type
Remember our blog post on finding out your skin type and knowing what products were right for you? Well, it seems we can’t stress that point enough! If your skin is oily or prone to acne then something like the Obagi Nu-Derm Exfoderm will work wonders for you as it reduces excess oil and pore sizes. If you suffer from dry skin, some like the Obagi Hydrate Luxe would be a real treat to it! It’s engineered specifically for extra-strength moisturization and will leave your skin feeling supple and warm.
She drinks the right liquids
While it may be tempting to grab yourself a cup of coffee to ail those morning blues, caffeine does no favours for your skin. Instead, why not try grabbing something a bit more natural. Vitamins and anti-oxidants from foods like kale, avocado, and beets, help your body keep your skin hydrated and healthy from the inside out.
She has the right diet
Just like with your drinking habits, you’re eating habits play a big part in caring for your skin. Yes, we’ve spoken about this a lot but what you eat is very important. As we did dedicate an entire blog post to this, we’ll leave a link here, as well as give some more food types that are great for your skin! Did you know olive oil helps the skin with looking young and healthy? You wouldn’t think it but about 75% of the fat in olive oil is monounsaturated fatty acids, which play a role in youth boosting. Dark chocolate is also fantastic for your skin as its rich in antioxidant properties, which help hydrate the skin and improve circulation.
She hydrates whenever possible
Every skin care expert will agree on the importance of hydration in relation to skin care. Dr Mona Gohara, a dermatologist in Connecticut said that “a lack of water means less radiance and more sag”. She suggests using products that have hydrating formulas and recommends drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day.
Her fingers don’t touch her face
Our last point may seem like an odd one, but it’s true that by touching your face throughout the day, your run the risk of spreading bacteria and causing breakouts- which lead to scarring, an increase in wrinkles, and even the flu.
