Get a Facial – Let Bernie give you the advice and treatment. Let the esthetician recommend which facial is best for you.
Wash your Face every Evening: Take off the day! It benefits the skin on the cellular level and it helps the skin to rest and to restore itself. If your skin needs some extra restoration, a nice night cream or oil that is paraffin free is very good for the skin. Remember, it is always best to consult with a licensed skin esthetician to get the best skin products for your needs.
Don’t Touch Your Face – This is easier said than done especially if you have a blemish that you can’t help but pester. The more that you touch your face the more problems that will arise. When you touch your face with unclean hands you are pulling bacteria from your dirty hands to your face and causing more fuel for the blemishes. Keep your hands off your face at all costs and do not pick or pop any blemishes! Again with the easier said than done but doing so will result in scaring- leaving you with bigger problems than a measly ol’ pimple.
Use SPF Protection – SPF should be worn daily on all skin types – even in the winter! SPF will fight the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays on your skin. You can mix an SPF with your daily moisturizer or find a moisturizer with SPF already in it. Try your best to stay out of the sun from 11:00am-2:00pm when the sun is at it’s peak.
Be Careful with Skin Care Combinations- Some combinations do not play nice with one another. Retinol and alpha hydroxy acids, like glycol and lactic acids. is a recipe for redness and irritation. Additionally, be careful with mixing Citric acid with other products. Layering it can cause irritation. There are many bad combinations so be sure to check with Bee to see which product combinations are safe and effective for your skin.
Eat Healthy – Just as our mothers told us growing up “You need to eat your veggies!” – If you’re anything like me and can’t sit down and eat a plain and dry salad try an alternative like juicing. Natural juices are full of vitamins, anti-oxidants and nutrients that help increase blood flow as well as total cell turnover and regeneration making for the healthiest complexion!
Moisturize – Moisturizer is one of the most important beauty products out there. Keeping your skin moisturized will combat multiple skin concerns down the road. Using an overnight moisturizer is a great way to stay consistently hydrated. Skin cell regeneration works faster overnight so using a nighttime moisturizer before bed is sure to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy. In addition, it’s important that every woman use an eye cream.
Over Do It – Don’t go overboard with your skin care routine. Keeping it as simple as possible will ensure a healthy complexion. Testing out too many serums and constantly changing your skin care routine will irritate your skin. Find one routine that works best for your skin type and stick to that for as long as possible! A professional esthetician like Bee will help you find the right products for your skin. This will help to keep your skin balanced and happy.
Drink Plenty of Water – Water is essential for a healthy complexion. H2O flushes out the toxins in your body and keeps the rest of your insides on track and working properly. Your skin is the very last organ to receive nutrients and nourishment from water. Meaning that in stressful situations and during these summer months especially, you have to drink even more water than you normally would! How much water should you be drinking? Take your body weight and divide it in half- that is how many ounces of water you should be taking in daily.
Don’t Drink Too Much Coffee –One cup of coffee a day can be beneficial but too many Starbucks trips in one week (or one day for some of us) can be dehydrating on the skin. Our skin needs all the water and hydration it can get, especially in the heat of summer so try to limit your coffee intake as much as physically possible for your lifestyle.
Every person makes decisions about where to invest their money for beauty and health.
