Gorgeous аnd flawless skin саn сеrtаіnlу bе possible wіth а proper skin care routine if you are under 30 or you were lucky enough to have good skin genes.  However, our skin іѕ delicate аnd іt іѕ subjected tо а great amount оf wear аnd tear whеn wе step оut into thе sun аnd have tо battle pollution and environmental stress. It іѕ nоt оnlу аll thе dirt аnd grime thаt саn affect оur skin; thе amount оf stress wе tend tо encounter аt оur work place аlѕо affects thе way оur skin looks аnd feels.

Gorgeous skin from the inside-out

Ever notice someone because their skin is glowing.  More than likely they take steps to take of their skin on the outside, but even more, these individuals are usually pretty healthy eaters.  “You are what you eat” is actually true.  When you eat a banana or a fresh green salad, it turns into you.  When you have a habit of eating and drinking sugar (don’t want to make you feel bad), that becomes you too and shows up on your skin.  Whether you are the granola person or the junk food eater, you can still follow three basic steps for skincare for beautiful skin inside and out.

Three plus Basic Steps tо Skin Care

Cleansing is the first step to remove the dirt that clogs your pores leading to black head and more.  This simple step also helps moisturizers to sink into the deeper layers of your skin.

 Exfoliating is often ignored,but should not be.  As we age, our skin sheds dead skin cells at a slower rate.  Choosing a cleanser with a gentle natural exfoliator will keep you skin fresh and bright.

Moisturizing is especially needed when you have dry, combination or normal skin.  We lose moisture from our climate but also because our skin gets thinner and looses moisture at a quicker rate.  Choosing a moisturizer that hydrates, easily absorbed, offers nutrition and has anti aging-properties  is the perfect combo for hydrated skin.

Mask– most people skip this step but I find it is almost the most important step.  A mask can clean, exfoliate, tighten, moisturize and add nutrition to your skin.  Best part is that you can make your own mask from ingredients you have in your refrigerator.  Here are a couple of ideas

Home made Mask

A mask of your choosing will change depending on the type of skin you have and what you want to accomplish.  But here is a mask that all skin types love.  I have used it myself and I notice a difference every time.  My skin is smoother, fresher and brighter.

Combine plain yogurt (exfoliator), a little honey (moisturize and anti bacterial), squirt of lemon (exfoliator and lightener) and a dash of turmeric (brightener).  Mix together to get a nice smooth paste.  It is helpful to warm it and your face up.  Apply, let dry (10-15 minutes) and wash off with warm water.
