Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every day could be a good skin day? It’s terrible when you have to get through the day with a cold sore, a glaringly obvious, Mount Vesuvius-sized pimple on your chin — hardly your sexiest look.
Did you know that bad skin days can be a thing of the past! You can significantly improve the quality of your skin with just a few simple changes.

If you’re taking care of your insides, it usually manifests on the outside too. Detoxing your body can have wonderful effects on the clarity of your skin, so do your system a favor and start trying out the following:
• Drink antioxidant-rich shakes for breakfast (like these)
• Drink warm lemon water
• Eat more fruits and vegetables
• Exercise regularly
• Drink green tea or a glass of red wine every day
There’s no quicker way to encourage wrinkles than to not keep your skin hydrated. This means carrying a bottle of water with you at all times and increasing your H2O intake. It also means making sure that you moisturize in the morning and night (especially during winter).
At least once a week, you should change your pillowcases. Bacteria builds up on the fabric and with time can infect your skin, causing breakouts. According to studies, most people sleep on their sides in the foetus position, which means that all the oils on your pillow end up smeared all over your face.
Everything’s better when you have the right amount of sleep. Have you ever noticed how much more alive and attractive you look when you’ve had a full night’s rest? Lack of sleep can make your skin pale and gaunt.
NEW research shows that beauty sleep can make your skin appear younger-looking and healthy! Read all about it —> HERE!
Get an early night and reap the benefits! If you can, try to sleep on your back for most of the night. This means that your face stays off the pillow and you are less likely to break out; it also helps to prevent wrinkles.
Don’t be tempted to sleep in your makeup. Always remove it properly before bed and cleanse your skin. Some people swear by exfoliating and toning, but figure out what your skin responds to best and stick to that ritual. Skin hates a divergence from the norm.

One of the best things you can do for your skin is to give it a day off from makeup. If you’re not confident enough to go without, perhaps because you have facial scarring or blemish problems, then at least try to reduce the amount of makeup you wear. It’s important that your skin can breathe naturally.
Wash your makeup brushes after use with soap and water — this will stop bacteria developing and then transferring to your face.

A great habit to get into is applying a face mask before bed around once a week, such as a hydrating mask. The mask will restore any water lost throughout the day, and help to plump up your skin — by morning, you’ll look glowing and gorgeous!
