Essential hints for younger-looking skin
Focus your regimen on your primary skin concern like breakouts or aging and select your products accordingly.
Don’t overload on products. Too much of anything can cause irritation, strip skin of moisture, and make it more sensitive.
Don’t wash your face until you’ve washed your hands. If you use a washcloth, make sure it’s a fresh one every time so there’s no bacterial buildup.
When cleansing or exfoliating, use tiny circular motions upward and very gentle pressure.
Use warm water to rinse. Hot water can over-dry. Cold water won’t rinse off the cleanser.
Don’t over-clean your face. Cleansing more than twice a day can over-dry your skin.
Toner actually prepares your skin to accept moisture better. While skin is still damp, smooth on moisturizer to seal the moisture in.
It’s not just what you apply but also how you apply it. Take a few extra seconds to massage in moisturizer to spark circulation and enhance radiance.
Go gently when you apply eye cream. Dot in a full circle all around the eye. Never pull or tug. Use your ring finger to apply. It’s the weakest finger so you won’t apply too much pressure.
Smooth a little eye cream around your lips every day. The area around the lips, like the area around the eyes, is very delicate and requires extra care.
