Everyone wants luminous, natural, beautiful looking skin...am I wrong? Throughout high school this is what I longed for most. However, I was cursed with oily/acne prone skin. My senior year, my complexion was a mess! Sometime during that year, my skin calmed down, but the emotional scars left on my memory of those days will forever haunt me. Since then, it has been my life-long quest to find skincare and beauty products that leave my skin feeling refreshed, healthy, and beautiful.
Just as we exercise our bodies, it is equally important to "exercise" our skin and take good care of it. Following a regular skincare regimen is key. With that being said, here are a few simple beauty tips:
Find a cleanser that works for your skin. One of my favorites is Origins "frothy" face wash. I love the way it suds up when you wash and leaves your skin feeling fresh!
Second, exfoliate your skin weekly. This will help boost circulation in your skin leaving it looking and feeling luminous. Again, one of my personal favorites is Origins Modern Friction. It gently removes sluggish cells, uneven patches and surface skin damage, mops up free radicals, refines, polishes and smoothes without the irritation. I love it and can't live without it!
Finally, follow up with an SPF moisturizer. I prefer to use one that feels light, not heavy on my skin. My all-time-favorite is Have A Nice Day, again, by Origins. It has a nice citrus scent that I love, and doesn't leave my pores feeling like they are suffocating for air.
Now, I wish I was one of those girls that had flawless skin and could go without foundation. However, since I am not, I prefer to use a mineral foundation. I have used both Bare Escentuals and Sheer Cover and love them both! Here's why: The light reflecting minerals blend magically with your skin’s natural oils for perfect coverage that's amazingly light. Also, the minerals are 100% natural and are infused with skin soothing botanicals, natural sun protection, and anti-oxidant green tea to help protect your skin from the visible signs of premature aging.
These minerals are truly a miracle! For anyone with any kind of skin imperfection, these minerals will leave your skin looking flawless, luminous, and beautiful! After using it the first time, I was amazed at the difference!! Not only does my skin look beautiful and glowy, but my skin also feels natural and my pores can breathe!
Now that you have read a few of my favorite skincare tips, what are yours?
