In this article, we want to give you some simple tips that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine that will help you keep your skin fresh, healthy, and glowing.
Now, but easy, I mean that these tips really are easy. There’s no huge changes needed to your lifestyle or diet. You may need to pay more attention to what you’re putting into your body, but that’s the most effort you’ll have to put in.
Let’s get started!
- Wear sunscreen!
As a Florida-based company, we know the benefits or wearing sunscreen, and the dangers of being outside for too long without it. It’s super important to apply at least SPF 15 sunscreen and reapply it every 2 hours. Don’t miss those easy to forget spots like the neck, scalp, and tops of the feet.
- Clean your phone
You may think this has nothing to do with skin but it really does. Your phone carries lots of bacteria around on the surface, and when you decide to make a call, now those items are now on your face. Take an anti-bacterial wipe and clean it at least once a day.
- Don’t pick at your skin
As tempting as it is to pull off a zit or pop a pimple, it’s important that you refrain. Doing these things can result in long lasting scars that are difficult to remove.
- Turn the water temperature down
If you love long hot showers, this may be tough for you. A hot shower will actually dry out your skin and remove oils. It’s best to take warm showers and baths instead.
- Don’t rub your skin
When you dry off with a towel, how do you do it? The best way, to ensure your skin does not get irritated, is to pat yourself dry.
If your skin gets any bit dry, it’s time to hydrate it with some moisturizer.
- Remove strong detergents and soaps
These can irritate many peoples’ skin. It’s best to use fragrance-free soaps and laundry products that are softer on the skin.
- Clean makeup brushes
When was the last time you did this? If you can’t remember, it’s time to do so. Best practice is to clean these brushes and sponges every 2-3 weeks.
