Step two: Learn the proper way to layer your skincare products
Proper layering of your skincare products will ensure that you are using each product to the fullest effect. Remember, cleanse first then moisturize!
Step three: Feed your skin from the inside
It’s no secret that staying hydrated and eating a healthy, balanced diet is good for your skin. Certain foods can help with different areas of the skin. Lycopene (an antioxidant found in tomatoes) improves your skin’s ability to protect itself from the sun, green tea can improve your skin’s elasticity, and vitamin C (found in strawberries and oranges) helps with anti-aging. Eat up!
Step three: Follow through
While missing a night or two probably won’t hurt you in the long run, a skincare routine will be most effective if you follow it consistently. Sticking to your morning and night routine will reveal happy glowing skin!
