Having a good skin care routine is probably one of the top five things to taking care of your skin, that we have. It is even more important when we live where the sun is shining bright all year long. This year, having a good skin care routine should be a new year’s resolution.
This article, is going to highlight the do’s and don’ts when it comes to keeping your skin picture perfect. For those of you in your twenties its best to start now! For my older ladies, it’s never too late!
Determining what kind of skin, you have is first. Dry, oily, combination, everyone is different and there is something for everyone. Finding a cleanser that works best for you comes down to trial and error. If you haven’t found one you like already, think about trying:
-Morning Burst facial cleanser (Clean and Clear)
-The Transparent Facial Bar (Neutrogena)
*We all have our slip ups after a late night out, but your skin and I are begging you to ALWAYS cleanse that face before you even think about hitting the hay at night!
*Exfoliating is so important! Its only necessary 1-2 times a week depending on your skin type though.
*Remember that too much cleansing or exfoliating isn’t good for your skin either.

I will always use toner! If you don’t know what toner is, it’s the secret weapon to healthy skin. Toner will most defiantly help anyone with oily or acne prone skin. It also does other things like:
-Completes the cleansing of your skin
-Shrink your pores
-Balance the pH of your skin
*Apply toner to a cotton ball and then rub all over your face and neck avoiding getting close to your eyes.

Ever hear the saying “You are what you eat?” Well it is true, because those blemishes showing on that, pretty little, face of yours are there for a reason. Here’s a little chart to detect what’s what when you’re broken out.
*Don’t forget to wash those makeup brushes ladies! Once a week with good ole dawn dish soap and warm water will do the trick,
*Makeup wipes are something I like to keep handy as well. Pre-gym wipe, post beach wipe, get this makeup off my face after a long day wipe! Garner Skin Active wipes are my personal favorite.
