the best skincare tips.

Skincare is on my mind. More now that we are creeping closer to warm weather. After a long winter skin has become dry and ultra sensitive. Which is why the products I rely on are especially important. Just as important? Following a proper skincare routine. This is something I have been focusing on in my quest to re-balance my skin. Something else that I have been focusing on? Beneficial skincare tips. These are a few that have been incorporated into my daily routine......

Get Enough Sleep At Night. One of the worst things for our skin is lack of sleep. Unfortunately many of us do not get enough. Myself included. Do what you can to turn in just a little bit earlier each night. Or to sleep in extra on the weekends. Every little bit counts! When you get between seven and eight hours of sleep per night you can wave goodbye to those annoying under eye bags.

Don't Just Apply Your Moisturizer. Massage It In. If you are anything like me...your skin needs some serious hydration right now. Here is a super helpful tip. Don't just apply your moisturizer. Make sure that you are really massaging the product into the skin. This will make sure your skin fully absorbs it. It also boost circulation. Which means refreshed, healthy, and glowing skin.

Drink Plenty Of Water Throughout The Day. Say it with me: hydration. This is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Drinking plenty of water each day (approximately eight glasses) will keep your skin hydrated, glowing, and radiant. Do what you can to make sure you get enough. If you don't like regular water...add in a little fruit for flavour.

Exfoliate Once or Twice a Week. Since dry skin is unfortunately a part of my life...this next skincare tip is a must for me. Exfoliating. Aim to do this once or twice a week with a gentle exfoliating cleanser. This will remove any dead skin cells from your face. The end result? Gorgeous glowing skin. Bonus: exfoliating makes it easier to apply your foundation.

It is important to take good care of your skin. That is why I have been focusing on these skincare tips...and some essential products. Want to see what they are? Then take a peek at my latest YouTube video for the creation of beauty is art.
