SKIN CARE: 6 WAYS TO ACHIEVE BETTER SKIN IN 2017
#1: Eat your way to clear skin
Your skin is technically your largest organ, so if you're eating something that is making it inflamed, it will show via acne, redness, or other irritations. Following a clean, balanced diet can change everything from your face's texture to the appearance (or disappearance) of fine lines and pimples.
#2: Sleep on a silk pillowcase
Not only will it make your blow-dry last longer, but it also helps reduce the chance of forming wrinkles. Since your face is less smushed and roughed up by a scratchy pillowcase, everything stays smoother for those hours of slumber.
#3: Use face oil
It doesn't matter if you have oily skin, because oil fights oil. And if you have dry skin, even better. Choose a face oil that feels and smells amazing to you, and make it part of your nightly routine. The aromatherapy benefits are just a bonus!
#4: Try double cleansing
This ritual is the best way to ensure you go to bed with a clean yet hydrated face. Start by massaging a cleansing oil into dry skin. Add water and rinse. Follow with a milky face wash. After, your skin will feel like butter, and there will be zero traces of smudged eyeliner or mascara.
The sun can damage your skin, even when it's cold outside. Protect your skin now, and it will age better – UV Rays make your skin more sensitive.
#6: Stop picking your face!
We often do it out of stress or habit, but picking your face is one of the worst things you can do to your skin. You are likely getting scars, so step away from that magnifying mirror!
