The following list is of the things you need to be doing either routinely or every once in a while to keep your skin shining.

  • Stay Hydrated: Your skin doesn’t just need to be moisturized from the outside, but from the inside too. Make sure you drink enough water every day; 6 glasses of water a day sound like a good amount.
  • Wash Your Face Daily: Using regular soap bars to wash your face can be harmful to your skin, which why it is recommended you only use freshwater that is NOT hot.
  • Moisturize Daily: Moisturizers help reduce the appearance of fine lines in your skin, which makes your skin look brighter and younger. It is recommended you apply moisturizers to your face and skin right after bathing, while your skin is still damp.

Second, it can lead to your body being dehydrated. If you’re a coffee addict, make sure you drink more water to balance your diet!
