I feel like I haven’t posted in a while…which is weird because in the beginning of this blog I was barely posting once a week and now I feel kind of guilty when I don’t post things daily. But the real difference is that now I have so much more that I want to share with all of you…and of course when I go somewhere or do something fashion/beauty/fun related, I immediately want to come home and write a post about it.
And this post was inspired by yesterday’s trip to my dermatologist (Dr. Leonel Calderón and his team are amazing!!). I went in for a pumpkin peel (to learn more about its benefits read here) and left with a lot of knowledge and healthy looking face.
That got me thinking about our faces and yes…some factors have to do with genes (thank you, Mom!) but there are a lot of things that we can do to keep our skin healthy and happy which don’t require too much money or a trip to the dermatologist. Here I will list my 3 most important points here.
Let’s start with the one thing that I know is an absolute “must”:
Wash your face every day and never (NEVER) go to bed with a full face of makeup. My girlfriend and fellow blogger Ginger Harris (check her blog here) just wrote about super easy makeup remover wipes…making it impossible for any of us to have an excuse for not wiping/washing/scrubbing our makeup off at night. I personally use the Clarisonic Mia every night before I go to bed. Works amazing and with minimal effort on my part…I could almost do it in my sleep. So no matter how tired you are…wash your face. Seriously…no excuses! Getting rid of the day’s dirt and makeup is the most important step in daily face maintenance…
Next point is: Purchase products that you WILL use. I am a notorious “pretty packaging” shopper…which means, if it has a good ad and pretty packaging, I probably will end up buying it…but then you end up with a medicine cabinet like mine (see below).
And my last point is: Clean your makeup brushes, Ladies.
Well Ladies, those are my pointers on how to keep your skin glowing and happy at home. Of course, I think it’s always good to have a facial or a light peel every once in a while, but that is a luxury…so when we can’t get to the spa or the dermatologist, we need to remember that we can do a lot of little things everyday that will help our skin to look its best.
Having healthy skin is as easy as 1,2,3:
1)Wash your face every day with products that will work with your skin
2)Buy products that you will commit to using and give them a fair shot to do their “thing”
3)Keep your brushes clean.
