- Sleep More
When I think of my skin being nourished and at its best, there is one thing I never underestimate—and that is the power of sleep. When the kids were young and I would stay up working until 2 AM. I thought I was being really productive. Little did I know my skin and general well-being was suffering from only three to four hours of rest a night. Sleep has become really important to me, and I now make sure I get at least seven hours to wake up and take on the day.
- Use Sunscreen
Even though I like having a tan, my greatest regret is that I haven’t always protected my skin from the sun. I think sunblock is really important now and I always use SPF 50+. Only use products that use the mineral blockers - zinc and titanium oxide.
- Keep it Natural
Only use natural products that will not cause inflammation or trap bacteria. Apply fewer products to skin, not more! Don’t overload your pores and cause breakouts.
I exfoliate in the shower every day. If I don’t exfoliate my face skin in the morning, I’ll do it at night so my skin is really soft. Using Evologie Stay Clear Cleanser with a soft cloth or a gentle pad does the trick. Use in a light circular motion, to wash away bacteria and deliver soothing botanicals below the skins surface.
- Hydrate Inside and Out
My main tips for great skin are to nourish from the inside and keep it super simple. Stay hydrated from the inside. Moisturize on the outside.
