If you have been looking for some beauty tips on how to take care of your skin and especially before bed time then you might want to try this beauty tips. I’m going to give you some in-depth tips on how to rejuvenate your skin and these are the tips that I personally use myself so I know this works really well.
I’m keeping it to 5 skin care tips.
Step Number One: Cleanse Your Skin
So the first one the most important is to cleanse your skin. The key to rejuvenation is making sure that your skin is clean, then it can absorb all the essential good products that you’re putting on it. You want to make sure that any cleanser that you’re using is effective, especially if you’re someone that’s wearing a lot of makeup or you have waterproof mascara. I know this is unconventional to what you guys hear but try using cleansing oils instead of facial soaps or any harsh chemical soaps that are out there on the market.
It doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend a lot of money. You can go as simple as extra-virgin olive oil. This is honestly my favorite makeup remover and also homemade cleanser. It’s so homemade and you can just literally use it from the bottle. If you’re going to be using an extra virgin olive oil you want to find one that is certified organic. Especially if you’re putting it on your face. You don’t want to use something that is low quality. So find a certified organic extra virgin olive oil to apply on your face.
– It’s going to melt down the makeup
– it’s going to be easy to remove and
– also it’s going to help nourish the skin too.
Just because it doesn’t strip away the natural oils that are already on the face, but it helps break down the products at the same time without irritating the skin.
For those who are worried about things like acne, prone skin, just because you’re using oil on the skin does not mean it’s going to make it any more oily. In fact it’s actually going to help nourish the skin and keep it from getting more irritated. Instead of using any harsh chemicals look for a product that is more organic, has less alcohol, less parabens and find something that is more gentle on the skin. Now you will understand why I recommend using oils on the skin when it comes to cleaning and removing of any makeup.
I know there are going to be nights when you’re going to be super lazy when it comes to removing makeup. However, if you find time to brush your teeth you can definitely find time to remove the makeup. Just invest in a good makeup remover like Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing wipe. What I like about these cleansing wipes is that it doesn’t feel like a makeup remover whereby once you remove the makeup your skin feels dry. There’s added moisturizer in it and it feels more hydrating. Whenever I’m feeling lazy Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing wipe is my go-to makeup remover
Step Number Two: Treat Your Skin.
There are different ways you can treat your skin. One of my favorite ways to treat the skin is to use a clay mask. I normally use Valencia skin detoxifying clay mask. Ever since I’ve been using this, I’ve noticed that my pore size decreased dramatically. It’s amazing and I know there’s bentonite clay and other organic natural ingredients. But with the Valencia skin detoxifying clay mask, pretty sure there’s like magical ingredients in there but it really works.
Clay mask is a great way to clean out any impurities and toxins from your skin. What it does is it draws out and removes all impurities and toxins and it brings it to the top of the skin. Now you can just rinse it right away. Find a clay mask that works really well for you. You can find really good ones at Whole Foods or you can use AZTEC Secret. I know there’s a lot of really good natural ones that you can use. Also the old-fashioned trick that I used when I was in college is the unscented kitty litter.
I know that sounds crazy I have a cat so I know how crazy that sounds. But a lot of the times when you look at the ingredients of unscented kitty litter, especially organic unscented kitty litter, it’s really just bentonite clay and bentonite clay is found in expensive or very well made clay masks that you can find in the market.
What you do is you take the powder of the kitty litter, you wet it and then you apply it on your face just like a clay mask and you rinse it off. Another treatment that I love using is a honey masked and what makes honey so unique is that it’s nature’s antibiotic. Not only will it help lighten the skin but also has healing properties. It helps heal the skin and nourish it. My favorite honey to use is manuka honey. It’s much more rich in antibiotics than normal honey that you find in the market, around the grocery store shelves.
It’s a little more expensive, so if you are on a budget manuka honey might be a little more expensive but I love it because I don’t just use manuka honey for my face. Whenever I have a sore throat or if I’m feeling sick I take a teaspoon of manuka honey and the next day my throat feels better (just another tip for you). It’s really a wonderful way to heal the body and the skin. I do this twice a week, whereby I apply manuka honey on my face. I leave it for about five to 10 minutes and then I rinse it off and my skin just feels amazing.
If you’re feeling a little fancy then I recommend using a really good well-made skin mask and there is one by Innisfree – innisfree intensive ampoule mask (Vitac). I discovered this brand when I was in Korea. It’s amazing quality they believe in organic natural products. What I love about this mask is that it’s a two-step process. You have the serum that’s attached at the top. You peel it off and you apply on your face. It’s rich in vitamin C. You then apply the mask on it and right when you remove it your skin just feels brand spanking new.
If buying mask like this is a little too expensive for you, there’s a way to make your own. It’s really simple all you need is;- rectangle square cotton sheets and essence. What essence does is, it softens the skin it lightens it and it also helps prepare it for all the other products that you’re going to apply later on the skin. What I do is I take the essence I douse it all over the cotton pads. I let it sit for 10 seconds and then I start stretching it out. Then I peel it layer by layer, applying it all over my face. Leaving it for about ten minutes is good enough and then just peeling it off my face.
Your skin is going to feel so fresh and so rejuvenated.
Step Number Three: Tone The Skin
When it comes to toners, you want to be careful with what’s on the market right now. Because there’s a lot on the market that has a lot of alcohol in it. What alcohol does is, it dries the skin which is the exact opposite of what you want to do. You want to look for a toner that doesn’t have a lot of alcohol like the one by Be The Skin botanical nutrition power toner. This is by far one of the best toners I’ve ever used. I love it and besides using this toner sometimes I’ll switch it with apple cider vinegar.
I normally use one called Solana gold. It’s all organic and again you can find this one at Whole Foods or you can buy it online. I love this one because it’s raw it’s unfiltered. What I do is I take two cotton pads one soaked in water one soaked in apple cider vinegar. I wipe my face with apple cider vinegar and then I immediately wipe off with water. I just keep doing it back and forth until my skin gets that tingly sensation. You don’t want to use apple cider vinegar raw on your face. Because it might sting a little too much and it might be a little too strong for the face. That’s why I recommend offsetting it with water.
Your skin is going to feel incredibly fine and be like thank you so much for not piling on all these chemicals on my face and giving me something that is natural and raw.
Step Number Four: Is To Nourish The Skin.
You want to find ingredients that are good for the skin that’s going to give it that luminosity. Looking for products like vitamin C that you can apply all over your skin is going to help give it that boost and it’s going to help produce more collagen. I always use one by OZ Naturals vitamin C serum. It’s by far one of my favorite vitamin C serum. It’s 20% vitamin C which is pretty potent. Another serum that I love is by Be the skin botanical nutrition power serum and it is super powerful. Just two pumps is all you need.
What you want to do is after toning your skin, you want to apply the serum on first before moisturizer. Just patting it all over the skin. A serum is kind of like a moisturizer that has a boost of power. Think of it like a moisturizer without the moisturizing benefits but it has all the popped potent ingredients in it. For example let’s say you don’t have the best diet but you take supplements. Serums are like that. You may not have the best skincare routine but using a serum will make a world of a difference. This is because you’re adding a lot of powerful active ingredients on the face.
They’ll help heal and nourish the skin another good vitamin to use on the skin is vitamin A or they call it retinol. The one I normally use is by IOPE retinol age corrector. You don’t need a prescription to get retinol. You can just buy online or over the counter. what I do is I take a little bit of retinol and I apply it on my forehead, my nasolabial folds, a little bit on my crow’s feet area and the rest around my cheeks and what this does is it helps the cell turnover faster so that your skin rejuvenates much faster.
But you have to be a little careful because retinol can dry out your skin so make sure you apply a really good moisturizer afterwards or else your skin is going to start flaking and it’s going to get really irritated if you need something stronger then you can start using a retinoid cream. This is prescription only and I have one that’s .05% and I use this one to start around my forehead and again nasolabial folds and it really does make a difference.
I know this is really strong because sometimes I find that my skin can feel a little dry so I used just a little bit but my personal favorite is the one that you can get over the counter which is not as strong as the prescription one.
The Final Step, Number Five: Hydrate your skin.
Find a good moisturizer that is not going to feel greasy or heavy on the skin people tend to think the heavier the moisturizer the better but that works better for older skin. If you have younger skin or you’re below 50 you don’t really want something that’s too heavy. Something that is light, refreshing and hydrating but that’s not going to
weigh the skin down one that I use every other night is the one by Aromatica rose absolute vital cream. It’s a beautiful moisturizer.
I love the texture it comes with a nice little scoop so that you don’t really contaminate it. You scoop it out and break the product down between your fingers and you Pat it on the face. Your skin will feel like a baby’s butt smooth the next morning. It feels so good and it doesn’t feel as greasy or oily another moisturizer I love using is an oil based moisturizer same brand, aromatica rose absolute nourishing facial oil. It doesn’t have to be this oil, it can also be like argan oil, olive oil, coconut oil or any oil you can safely use on the skin it’s going to not only help hydrate the skin but the skin will also feel like it’s natural.
It’s not going to have that irritation. Well that’s pretty much the final step. Hydrate the skin, moisturize it and you’re pretty much ready to sleep.
Whenever you’re shopping don’t compare prices, don’t look at what’s expensive, look at what’s effective. Besides cleaning the face hydrating the skin is the most important and always remember, don’t neglect drinking water. Just because you’re putting all these products on the face, don’t expect miracles because half the battle is also what you put inside the body. If you made it right here, you can share your own experience. It’s all welcome.
