Break Up With Your Makeup With 5 Easy Steps

Breaking up is hard to do – especially when it comes to girls and their makeup. If you’re a professed makeup junkie like myself, letting go of our beloved cosmetics can be quite the challenge. But if there is one thing that I have learned as I’ve gotten older is that no amount of makeup can substitute great looking skin. Taking care of it, and keeping it clear, healthy, and glowing is more important than any makeup product on the market. Period.

For years, I’ve neglected to take care of my complexion. I’ve disguised blemishes and uneven skin tone with heavy foundation, instead of giving it the proper TLC it needed. But now I’m doing a much better of job of tending to it and consistently following a proper skin care regimen for it.

Don’t get me wrong. My skin is far from flawless, but I’m well on my way to achieving a smoother more healthier complexion by exercising these 5 easy steps.

If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. Drinking more water will help rid the body and skin of toxins and keep you looking and feeling refreshed.

Some people overlook the importance sunscreen. It is hands down the most effective anti-aging product you can buy, and more importantly helps avoid potential life-long damages of the sun.

Cleanse Nightly 
Believe it or not our face is one of the dirtiest parts of the body because we touch it all day long. It’s important to clean the skin at night to avoid the spread of bacteria and give our skin an opportunity to breathe.

Moisturizing your face keeps the oil levels in your skin regulated. Since your skin rejuvenates itself during the night when you sleep, applying a moisturizer before you go to bed is always a good idea.

Get Your Beauty Sleep 
It may sound basic but not getting enough sleep can make you look older and give a dull tired complexion. Make sure to make it a priority and get plenty of ZZZ’s
