SkinCare 101 :)

Hey Guys & Girls <3 
I wanted to do a blog post on a couple of tips and tricks and guidelines that you should follow to keep your skin healthy and looking its best. 
Skincare is just like a science experiment; trial and error. Try what you think might work for you and if it doesn't move on to the next thing :) 
Taking care of your skin is not only important for your beauty but also for your health. Not taking proper care of your skin can lead to premature wrinkles and skin cancer! (SCARY) 

Please Note: these tips are not just for women, it is just as important for a man to take care of his skin as it is for a women. 
Prevent Wrinkles!
Tip #1: never tug on the skin under your eyes, I know that as your putting on eyeliner or eye cream you may tug on it but just remember that this skin is super duper sensitive and thin, tugging on it CAN lead to wrinkles at a young age. Also; use your ring finger to apply any creams or concealers. It is the finger with less pressure which doesn't harm or hurt the tender skin. 

Finding your perfect skin routine may be hard at first and you may have to try a lot of different products before you find your perfect combo. Buying skincare sets may seem like an easy way to get it all, but just remember each product should work as well individually as it does with all the other products, so don't feel pressured into buying it all. 

Try finding:
1.) A GOOD CLEANSER
2.) A GENTLE EVERYDAY EXFOLIANT OR A ONE THAT IS ROUGHER FOR A WEEKLY EXFOLIATION. 
ps: exfoliating is super important, it gets rid of dead skin cells and dirt and stuff ;P 
3.) A MOISTUIRZER; WHETHER YOU HAVE DRY, COMBINATION, OR NORMAL SKIN.
4.) A SERUM INSTEAD OF A MOIZTURIZER IF YOU HAVE OILY SKIN BECAUSE IT DOESN'T ADD OIL 
5.) AN EYE CREAM; TO PREVENT WRINKLES AND DRYNESS. 
6.) AN OIL CONTROL OR HYDRATING MASK FOR SEMI WEEKLY TREATMENTS :) 

So like I said before work with products and your skin to see what works, you could even go to Sephora and ask for samples of any skin care products you like. They will never deny you samples ! :) 

sunscreen ! 
Never forget your suncreen, it is something you should NEVER EVER EVER leave your house without. If you want to look tan go for the spray tan or self tanners. Tanning is the body's way of protecting itself from further UV rays coming from the sun. It's not healthy to do it daily. 

WATER !
Drinking 8 or more glasses of water is also really important. It keeps your body hydrated and makes your skin GLOW :) 

I will be doing a series of blogposts on more skincare tips and guidelines and talking further about all these topics. If you have any questions don't hesitate in asking and I will definitely try to give you an answer :) 

Love and SUNBLOCK <3
