Simple Skin Care

We all know how important it is to have a great skin care routine. Cleanser, toner and moisturiser are
usually the bare minimum now with so many other products sneaking their ways into our everyday
regimes. It's all well and good using these products and hoping that they will make us look 10 years
 younger and as fresh as a daisy but without eating properly and concentrating on the basics, how
well will they really work? 

I'm going back to the very basics, before all the magical creams, and take a look at what we can do
ourselves to look beautiful. 

  1. We all know how important it is to drink plenty but to get glowing skin we should be aiming to
     get about 6 glasses a day! And that does not include coke or coffee. 
  2. Fruit and Vegetables!!!!! I can hear you all now, "5 a day, yes yes we know!" But did you
    know that carrots, broccoli, apricots, strawberries, watercress and oranges are all skin
    superfoods, so get them down you as often as you can! 
  3. Chocolate hasn't been linked to having problem skin, so you can still indulge in your little
     choc-attacks. Within reason people! 
  4. Skipping meals is a big no-go when it comes to healthy skin so make sure you're sticking to a
    regular, balanced diet. 


Winter is on it's way out (thank goodness) and Summer is just around the corner so here's some
things to remember for when the sun comes out.
  1. Slap on that suntan lotion! Do it before you get dressed as part of your normal moisturising
  2. Don't forget about the skin on your lips. They are so prone to burning and people often miss
    them out so invest in a lipsalve with SPF.
  3. If you can stay out of then sun between 12 and 3. You're all shouting at me again, "We know
     this!" but how many of you actually do it?! 
  4. Buy a fashionable summer hat, one that you really like, and WEAR IT! 


Although we may be seeing a tad more of the sun now, Winter is still lingering and so we need to be
protecting our skin from the cold weather. 

  1. Cold weather and freezing winds dry out the skin and make us itch so make sure you're
    covering up and trying to keep as much of your skin away from the elements. 
  2. If you're layering up in this weather then make sure the layer closest to your skin is a light
    cotton as this keeps the skin warm and dry and is less likely to irritate it. 
  3. I know you're all dying to hop into a nice hot shower or bath when you get in but the water
    dries out your skin! I'm afraid that if you want beautiful skin you're gonna have to turn the heat
     down just a little bit, and keep your time in the water to a bare minimum! 

So there you have it, just a few tips and tricks to save our skin without the expensive products.
However, integrating these pointers with your usual regime will most definitely give you the best
skin you have ever had!
