Hey Guys... it's getting warm out there!! Here are some easy items to get into for beautiful skin!!
Cleansing the skin: Look you've heard it before...from your parents first I'm sure ... "Go wash your face!" Makeup, SPF, sweat, and the environment all can pile up on the skin! It is SUPER important to wash away the grime from your skin DAILY!! On light makeup days I use this combo! I cleanse with the MAC Mineralize Charge Water Cleanser I just use a cotton ball (or cotton pad) and then Neutrogena's new scrub what helps tackle shine with rice protein! Find your combo and work with it!
SPF+: Enough said. Every skin tone needs sun protection!! EVERY!! Walking down a city block for shopping, heading to the beach, watching a ball game, or having a picnic in the park.. all sunblock situations! Good thing is a lot of our skincare items have some SPF built in! SPF is perfect all year around, because even tho the summer time sun feels stronger because of the tilt of the Earth, it has the same strength year long.
Diet: Not dieting... but what you eat and ingest into your body! Enjoy your cocktails with the girls, get down at the weekend BBQ, and get a creamy soft serve every now and then get back to your regular routine!
Sleep: With Summertime parties and people starting their days earlier plus still holding down the 9 to 5's it is easy to get run down! No matter your age we all need time to repair our bodies and that's what sleep does for you!! Check out this article about sleep for more detailed info! There is not the "magic number**" that is important, but the kind of sleep we get!!
Those are my 5 Summer Essentials for beautiful skin. Not saying you won't get a flair up or suffer a burn, but these will help keep your skin healthy and happy for most of the time!!
Enjoy Summer 2012!!
