Beautiful Skin is Simple
As a stylist, I’ve helped wives look their best with the easiest hacks, and every single woman wants beautiful skin but doesn’t know how to get it. 1) there are so many advertised products on TV so they must be the best, and 2) we have to fly to Hollywood and sell a kidney to find the beautiful skin secrets of the stars. These are big fat lies! I’m spilling the beans on the keys to beautiful skin, and it’s easy and affordable, friend …..
Let’s get to it, shall we?!
Beautiful Skin Hacks
As you will see below, four of these hacks are completed daily and you only have to exfoliate once a week. Easy Peasy! These tips are quick and easy but will make such a tremendous difference in your quest for beautiful skin.
Cleanse that face only at night
The key is to keep it simple. Each night use a cleanser that matches your skin type (answer 5 questions to know which type you have) and stick with it. It doesn’t have to be expensive. I’m partial to this face wash and these cleaning wipes for combo, oily, and dry-skin girls. Find one that works for you and stick with it. When I’m in a hurry or traveling, these cleanser wipes are my fave.
Exfoliate once a week
We all have skin cells that die and have new ones that are deep within the layers of our face just begging to be seen. When we don’t “scrub” the top layer of skin out of the way, the fresh, new skin can’t show! This is not a harsh, complicated process but also helps shrink pores and make skin smoother and younger looking. My favorites are my homemade sugar scrub or Mary Kay’s microdermabrasion. This is only ONCE a week and right after cleansing and before toning.
Tone & Freshen up that skin every morning
Are there exercises to firm up skin? No, the toning up I’m speaking of is tightening the skin while removing any leftover residue on the face, and shrinking those pores by removing any clogged dirt or acne. Since you aren’t cleansing your face in the morning, pour a little toner/freshener on a cotton ball and rub all over the face. My fave is good ole witch hazel.
Moisturize that face every morning
If you have a dry skin type, you can moisturize before bed also. All skin types must moisturize their skin – even oily-skin girls (yours will just be lighter). If oily skin is not moisturized, it will overcompensate and produce more oil naturally and you’ll have the greasy look. My favorite is what I shared as my anti wrinkle eye cream. I simply use the coconut oil shown above as an all over moisturizer.
Protect that skin
Whether you quickly dust a little pressed powder on your face from your super-cheap compact or swirl your kabuki brush in a circular motion and apply your mineral powder, a tiny bit of powder will help protect your skin from aging, toxins, and dirt clogging your pores. It only takes seconds, y’all. (Here’s a how to apply makeup in 3 minutes).
Each morning you simply tone, moisturize and protect. Each night you simply cleanse, tone, and moisturize. Once a week you will just add in the exfoliating step in between your cleansing and toning. That’s it! Simple, huh? No Hollywood secrets or overly expensive products.
