The skin on your lips needs love too! Get rid of pesky flakes by exfoliating once or twice a week with a lip scrub and slicking on a layer of your favorite lip balm after. You’ll like the way your lips feel! For an easy do it yourself exfoliant, mix equal parts petroleum jelly and sugar in your palm, slather it on and rinse with warm water.
Sometimes the best solution for better skin is also the simplest. Taking a warm shower opens up your pores, so it’s the best place to wash your face. Feeling a little more stressed than usual? Give yourself an extra five minutes with the water running to simply relax. #skinhealth
Yes, you’re beautiful, but that doesn’t mean you have to touch your skin every time you think about it. Touch your face less and wash your hands more! It’s very tempting to pick, poke, squeeze, and scratch in front of the mirror. But the more you traumatize the skin, the greater your risk of scarring. Apply treatment products and let them work.
When your skin needs a little rejuvenation, do one simple thing: Give yourself an ice cube facial. Sounds weird, but this little trick tightens your pores, promotes blood circulation, soothes acne and smooths out your complexion. All you have to do is take an ice cube, wrap it in a damp paper towel, and gently glide it over your face. Instant dull skin relief. If you really want to go all out, you can freeze green tea or orange juice into cubes and glide over your skin. This gives your skin a big dose of antioxidants and reduces redness. Absolutely amazing!!
The key to not looking tired? It’s…not being tired! I do realize that it may be easier said than done, however, you must try to do whatever you can to get in seven to eight hours of sleep a night, and your skin, including those pesky under-eye bags, will look noticeably better. Sleep offers the kind of results that no face cream can mimic.
Rather than dabbing on your face cream, use gentle pressure, “massaging” it into your skin in a circular motion. Do the same when you wash your face. This simple trick will kick your circulation into high gear. Plus, it feels so good.
If you want to switch from shaving to waxing your underarms, fall is the time to start. Sleeveless season is over, making the interim growth stage easier to handle, says Ji Baek. Then, the more you wax, the less hair grows back. “Wax every month and by summer, you can just pluck out strays,”
