It’s amazing how many of us work out every single day or fastidiously diet for our waistlines, yet we’ll just slap anything on our faces and hope it will work. Folks, the skin is part of your body and you’ve got to work on it to get it to look and feel as good as the rest of you.
Let’s talk about how to get that gorgeous skin in top condition, shall we? Here are my four favorite simple tricks to get your face in top shape:
Always cleanse your face at night – This is ESSENTIAL. Evening is when you’re about to take off all of the dirt and nastiness you’ve accumulated during the day: old makeup, pollutants, stress, etc. Use a great sensitive skin face wash like Simple Skincare Refreshing Facial Wash Gel along with a great toner to balance your skin. Layer on products like corrective serums or treatments, then top it off with a rich, fantastic moisturizer like Simple Skincare Vital Vitamin Night Cream.
Cleanse your face after working out – That post-workout glow might just tempt you to not wash your face, but old sweat and grime gathers on your face and can clog your pores, turning your glow into goo. Carry Simple Skincare Facial Cleansing Wipes with you to the gym and if you can’t take a shower, at the very least use them to wipe your face, neck and décolleté. A tip: if you can’t change, use them to wipe the area around your jog bra to help keep body acne from forming.
Always use eye cream –Preventing lines and wrinkles around the eye is a labor of love. Using Simple Skincare Soothing Eye Balm, apply a pea-sized amount to your ring fingers and pat it in. It might take a couple of seconds, but the patting motion forces your skin to heat up to absorb the cream (it speeds absorption) and dabbing rather than dragging your finger back and forth helps prevent wrinkles and fine lines.
Exfoliate – Dull, dead skin be gone so healthy skin can breathe underneath! Use a gentle exfoliant like Simple Skincare Smoothing Facial Scrub and apply with a light, circular motion to apply to wet skin (it’s your face, not a car, Karate Kid.) Rinse and follow with a great moisturizer.
Follow these steps and you should see great results pretty soon, especially if you’re using such nourishing products. Sensitive skin, dry skin, oily skin – it can all be great skin if you just know how to treat it. It’s just that simple.
