The desire to skip the make up in the morning has increased year by year. I’ve found myself trading the 30 minute morning makeup sessions for 30 more minutes of sleep. Let me tell you, I have no regrets! Maintaining a glowing face is much easier than some would think. Lets talk about 4 must haves for a fresh glowing face that will leave you just as confident walking out of the door in the morning as you would taking the 30 minute make up session.
Consuming 6-8 glasses of water daily can significantly improve the look of your skin. Drinking water daily detoxes and flushes impurities out of your body leaving skin well hydrated and looking very healthy. Drinking water daily also helps keep wrinkles away, reduces acne, and keeps your face fresh. If you aren’t that much of a water fan because it lacks flavor I highly recommend trying fruit infused water. Here are a few recipes to get you started. Fruit Infused Water Recipes
Exfoliation is not up for debate when trying to achieve a glowing face, it is mandatory! Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. Gentle exfoliation two to three times weekly improves blood circulation and skin rejuvenation. Implementing this step weekly helps keep pores from clogging and leaves your skin refreshed. I have been using Pampered Love’s Face and Body Scrub and I absolutely love it. I have really sensitive skin so most products that work for most do not work for me. Keeping it all natural is a must for me so finding the perfect product was a must!
MOISTURIZING WITH URGENCY
While exfoliation is a must, a quick follow-up with a face moisturizer is as well! People do not realize that there is a very small window between exfoliation and locking in the skin’s moisture with a moisturizer. Although you are hopefully patting your face dry after exfoliation, the skin naturally dries itself by evaporating water. This means while there is still moisture on your skin you need to lock it in! Using a face moisturizer boosts hydration in your skin, prevents flaking and dullness, and creates a protective layer. Although exfoliation is recommended only two to three times daily, moisturizer is a daily commitment. I recommend Pampered Love’s Face Moisturizer because it’s not only organic but it has Aloe Vera as one of its ingredients. Aloe Vera provides so many benefits on its own that pairing it with other organic beneficial properties to my face has been a game changer!
INCREASE THE VITAMIN C
Vitamin C is one vitamin you just don’t want to ignore. Vitamin C helps create collagen to keep the skin firm. There are several ways to consume your Vitamin C whether through capsules, fruit, or leafy greens..this vitamin is your friend. Not only does it help improve skin appearance by brightening, smoothing, and firming but is good for your overall health as well.
