Sharing 9 tips that you’re probably aren’t thinking about that really impact your skin in a week!
1.Washing Your Face For 60 – Seconds
According to Aesthetician Nayamka Roberts-Smith you should be washing your face for 60 seconds, working the product on your face and allowing it actually work. Nayamka Roberts-Smith says “[Sixty seconds] softens the skin and dissolves sebum blockages better. Texture and overall evenness improves.”
I’ve been doing the #60SecondRule Consistently for about two month and my skin has really, really improved!
2. STOP Touching Your Face
I really used to do this all the time subconsciously but I’ve made it my business to stop because it really causes your skin to break out. We touch so many thing on the daily and don’t even realize the germs & bacteria that will affect our skin.
3. CLEAN your phone every single night!
I can’t express enough how much bacteria and germs are on our phone. Without cleaning your phone you easily spread this to your bed and pillow, which will eventually end up on your face. Clean your phone it really helps!
I normally keep wipes in my car if i need to wipe down my phone after leaving it on tables and etc. Every night I clean my phone with a disinfectant wipe or Isopropyl alcohol every single night. If you have random breakouts on your face, this could really help.
Flushing out my system once a week or fasting for a couple of days can really reset your body. Drink plenty, and plenty of water when detoxing and fasting. I drink a detox tea everyday by Traditional Medicinals EveryDay Detox® Lemon – Linked Here! Drinking this tea everyday first thing in the morning has really improved my skin, and helps to gives my skin a radiant glow!
5. Wash Your Pillow Cases, Scarfs, and Sheets
I wash my pillow cases every 4 days and I throw my scarfs and bonnets in the washer too. Oils and buildup can easily get on our pillows and scarfs from hair. So washing these on the regular will improve your skin drastically. I also wash my sheets every single week of-course, but pillow cases I wash every 3-4 days.
6. Clean Teeth = Clean Face
Sounds crazy but good dental hygiene also plays a major part in healthy skin. Flossing every single night and brushing twice a day. Acne around your chin and near your mouth can be linked to bacteria from your mouth. Washing your face after brushing and flossing also helps to reduce bacteria from affecting your skin.
Sweat by working out or taking a hot bath! I try to workout atleast 2-3 times a week even if it’s in my house. A hot bath can help if you’re not working out, allow yourself to swear profusely for about 15 mins. Keep a glass of water at hand when taking a hot bath. Sweating opens up your pores and helps to give your skin a good purge. Cause really, washing and toning doesn’t always get everything but sweating can helps to clear out what on and under the surface.
The less you sleep the more it will show up on your skin. I know it’s not ideal to get 7-8 hours of sleep and sometime I don’t get 7-8 hours, but sleeping helps your skin to retain moisture, reduces wrinkles. Drinking a bottle of water before you go to sleep will help your skin stay hydrated why you’re sleeping.
9. Hyaluronic Acid
This acid is naturally made by our body so it’s really good for your skin. I use a spray at night (Linked here) that contains this Hyaluronic Acid. This acid helps your skin to retain moisture, I 10/10 recommend this, my skin has improved so much since using Hyaluronic Acid. Using Hyaluronic will give your skin a hydrated glow and improve the texture of your skin. You can find Hyaluronic Acid in serum form or you can take the supplement, I recommend what works best for you.
