There are certain beauty habits you should be doing every day. We totally get that with working, keeping up with your social life, and personal responsibilities it can be hard to follow all the proper do’s and dont’s of beauty—and no one expects you to be perfect! However, there are certain little tasks that should become a habit—and we’re sharing those today.
You should be wearing sunscreen every single day. Sunny out? Sunscreen. Overcast? Still sunscreen. Rainy? Sun. Screen. If you haven’t adopted this habit yet, especially as the season for sun-worshipping is upon us- start now!
2. Use Something with Vitamin C
Taking vitamins is important, but so is using beauty products with vitamins! Vitamin C helps visibly brighten your skin, reduce dark spots and overall improve the texture of your skin!
3. Add a Retinol for Nighttime
If you’re new to retinol, it probably sounds scary, but I promise it’s not. According to the interview I did with skincare queen Kate Somerville, “There are so many benefits to Retinol: it stimulates collagen, removes environmental damage, aids in wrinkle reduction, helps with breakouts, reduces scarring, minimizes pore size, helps skin texture, helps to remove brown spots… it does all of it! Retinol can be drying and irritating, so look for time-released, gentle formulas.”
4. Drink More Water
I know, I know you’ve probably heard this million times. But a good reminder never hurt anyone. So chug some H2O! Text your friends and remind them! Tweet it! Your skin and body will thank you.
5. Dry Brush
I’ve been dry brushing off and on for a few years now and I think it’s a great habit to get into. As with anything, do your research and make sure it’s right for you. Dry Brushing is a great way to exfoliate, improve circulation and helps improve the appearance of cellulite!
6. Be Mindful of How You Wash Your Face
At this point, you’re probably on auto-pilot when you wash your face- am i right? But tonight when you wash your face- notice how your hands move! You probably wash down, pushing the product or water downwards on your face! But STOP! Think about it this way- gravity pulls down, which is how wrinkles are created! Try washing up, using upwards motions. It might take a while to get used to- but you’ll thank me later!
