Our skin goes through a lot during the day. It faces all kinds of irritants, including wind, pollution and the sun.  To keep skin glowing at all times, a dedicated beauty routine is a must so start with this guideline:

Cleanse. Beautiful skin is clean and glowing. Ensure you use a cleanser morning and night to get rid of sweat, dirt and oil that clog pores.

Exfoliate. Getting rid of the excess dry skin cells will help make room for fresh new skin cells to grow. Use warm water and an exfoliating cleanser to help remove rough skin. Exfoliating should be done a couple of times a week.

Moisturize and Protect. Keeping skin moisturized is critical for a beautiful healthy look. After cleansing, apply a moisturizer, appropriate for your skin type to keep it hydrated. If the moisturizer does not have an SPF, make sure you put on sunscreen as well. The sun can severely damage skin, making it look older and tired.

But what is the most important step of your skin’s beauty routine? Advisors tell us to get enough sleep.

There is a reason we call it beauty sleep. Getting the proper amount each night can help skin look more luminous and youthful.  At night our bodies recharge and if we aren’t getting enough sleep the stress hormone cortisol becomes elevated, leading to inflammation in the body that impacts the skin’s appearance.

If daily stress keeps you awake on the pillow, wind down each day by soothing the senses. Popular products like ZzzQuil Scented Plug-Ins and ZzzPads, in trendy lavender and chamomile aromas, are designed to create a calming sleep environment.
