Who doesn’t want beautiful, glowing skin? Nothing makes you feel, and look, younger and more vibrant than beautiful, glowing skin. To help you achieve that wonderful skin you’ve always wanted, we put together these Top 10 skin care tips for you. We researched the top shared articles and combined with tips from celebrities and movie stars.
Drink lots of water
You can never drink enough water. Drinking water is the #1 beauty tip by almost all the movie stars. Keep a bottle of water with you throughout the day and keep by your bed at night. Doctors recommend you drink a tall glass of water as soon as you get up in the morning. Your body is dehydrated from sleep and the water also hydrates your brain and you will feel and think better as well. Eight glasses of water a day is the recommended minimum amount of water you should drink to keep your body, and skin, hydrated.
Another top tip for glowing skin is super simple: sleep. Make sure you get at least 6-8 hours of sleep every night. Sleep is when your body regenerates cells, including those skin cells. Your body is constantly sloughing off skin cells and rejuvenating with new skin. Make sure you get enough good quality sleep so your body can take care of itself.
Exercise! We know exercise is work and not always fun but vigorous exercise 3-4 days a week will ensure your skin gets the oxygen it needs to be healthy and allow your skin's cells to function optimally.
Wash your Face Thoroughly
Make sure you wash your face thoroughly every morning and night. Be sure to get all the dirt and makeup out of your pores. Washing you face in the morning is like giving you a clean slate to start your daily skincare routine. Be sure to use a sulfate-free, non-drying cleanser.
Use high quality lotions to keep you skin hydrated
Don’t use cheap skin care products on your skin. Make sure you invest in a high quality lotion that is made of natural products. Using oils and lotions has always been one of the ways celebrities and stars keep their skin glowing. The movie star Sophia Loren kept her skin soft by occasionally taking baths with olive oil. Mae West used coconut oil to give her skin a youthful glow.
Give yourself the treat of a facial
Celebrities do chemical peels, oxygen treatments, ultrasonic exfoliation, LED light, microcurrent treatments and more. But for most of us, this type of skin treatment isn’t realistic, or affordable. But even if you can't make it into the salon for monthly facials, give yourself one at home!
Protect yourself from the sun’s UV rays
Sun is the number one cause of your skin getting wrinkles. That is why you need to wear an SPF moisturizer on the face and neck, 365 days a year, rain or shine. And, if you really want to avoid wrinkles, limit your time in the sun.
Glowing skin takes work
Just like most things in life, having beautiful, glowing skin takes dedication and hard work. Don’t be fooled when you see a celebrity in a magazine with beautiful skin. Their skin care is likely managed by an entire team of aestheticians, dermatologists, make up artists and photographers. Just follow the tips here and you will be on your way to having your very own skin care routine.
