Wash your face every night.

And always take off all your makeup before bed. A great balm remover or oil cleanser makes washing off even the most stubborn waterproof mascara a breeze. This process takes less than a minute and will save your skin from harboring bacteria for days to come.

Wear sunscreen all day, every day.

Yes, even inside your house. I have been working from home and still wear sunscreen religiously because those rays are strong everywhere. UVA light causes premature skin aging by breaking down collagen and elastic tissue, contributing to the onset of skin cancers.

Less is more.

Remember 10-step skincare routines? Well, they aren’t the solution for everyone. Sometimes, a few potent, effective skincare products can do wonders. It all depends on your unique skin type. Speaking of…


Invest in your skin.

Preventative measures are much better in many regards, especially when you think about how damaging and costly repairing your skin can be. Don’t wait until the damage is done – invest in your skin with facials, peels, high quality products and more.

Always use clean, skin-friendly sheets.

Don’t forget to wash your sheets regularly, especially your pillow cases. As gross as it sounds, a lot of bacteria (read: drool) can live on your bed. Plus, cotton scratches and tugs on skin, which leaves you with visible premature stretching, sleep creases and more.

Don’t forget the neck and lips.

If you’re anything like me, you ignored beauty tips to bring all your skincare products down to your neck. Well, I’m here to tell you to stop ignoring the facts because your neck is just as vulnerable to the elements as your face. Lips are another commonly neglected part, too.

Prioritize sleep.

With more quality sleep, your skin is better able to repair and regenerate itself after working hard to fight any free radicals in your environment during the day. For example, melatonin, known for its anti-aging properties, are produced at night.

Stay hydrated.

Especially in the winter when many of us deal with parched skin, staying hydrated is key. There are plenty of hydrating moisturizers that cater to all skin types, from extra oily to combination. Don’t forget to drink at least eight cups of water daily!

Incorporate regular practices into your routine. 

Some best skincare practices don’t need to happen every day, but they are still essential to your skin’s success. Depending on your goals, make sure to exfoliate, use face masks and the like as your skin needs it.

Don’t neglect your body skin.

Skin is the largest organ on the body, and our body skin makes up most of that. Finding a body butter that melts into your skin with intense hydration is one of the best feelings you will ever experience.

Be more eco-conscious with products.

All natural, organic skincare items are going to be better for your skin. The less chemicals and ingredients you can’t pronounce, the safer you will be.
