Although I’m still young, I have already begun to take control of my skincare routine. It’s easy to take care of our skin, and it doesn’t have to cost a ton of money. Taking care of our skin often even goes along with taking care of our health. Little things like drinking more water and wearing SPF will replenish our skin and bodies and prevent sun poisoning and many other dangerous diseases. I wanted to share 5 simple beauty tips I live by that anyone can begin to implement in their lives if they don’t already, starting right now!
1.Chug water first thing in the morning! I begin every morning by chugging a bottle of water.We all know water is vital to our routine and has loads of benefits on our skin, our health, our energy levels, on our body, and pretty much everything. It’s so important to stay hydrated and to drink lots of water because it could have crucial effects on our skin and health. Dehydration can cause dry skin and wrinkles while hydrated can produce glow-ey skin and eliminate acne! Staying hydrated will make your skin brighter and your hair shinier. Start each day by chugging a cup of water and make sure to drink 8 cups throughout the day!
2. Clean your makeup brushes. I make sure to clean my makeup brushes weekly. Cleaning your makeup brushes is extremely important but something many of us neglect to do. It’s important to clean your brushes of all that bacteria that can clog your pores. I wash my brushes by first, running each brush under water to dampen them. Next, I rub each brush on a bar of ivory soap making sure to get in between the bristles. Then I rinse thoroughly.
3. Use an eye cream. I use eye cream twice a day. Now for most, using an eye cream twice a day isn’t necessary. Instead an eye cream used once at night before bed is just enough. I have always suffered from dark circles and puffiness, so I use First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy in the morning before applying my concealer. This eye cream is great because it’s light and a nice tan shade that works almost as a light concealer. The best part about this eye cream is its metal applicator used to blend the eye cream. The coldness of the metal is great for de-puffing and brightening underneath the eye. At night, I either use an eye cream or sometimes I just use Aquaphor to add some moisture.
4. Moisturize! Use a high quality moisturizer and use it on your face each morning and night. Most of us are already in the habit of moisturizing our face, but what about our body? It’s equally important to keep our bodies hydrated and well moisturized so make sure to moisturize your body each day. Currently, I use CeraVe facial moisturizers AM and PM for my face. This moisturizer is great for acne prone skin and contains SPF! It’s especially important to use moisturizers with SPF, or to wear sunscreen every single day. This will protect your skin not only from burning, but all of the terrible UVA rays.
5. Use a face mask once a week. It’s important to exfoliate and I find the best way to do this is with a mask each week. A mask hydrates your face and rids your skin of all of the dead skin cells. Check out a DIY face mask here!
These 5 beauty tips have become a part of my daily life and are very important in my beauty routine. Little things like drinking water can improve our health and skin, while cleaning our makeup brushes will make us much more sanitary and help rid our skin of acne. It’s important to take preventative tips to help keep our skin fresh, clean, and healthy! Plus, it’s never too early for anti-aging prevention!
