1. Drink plenty of water.
Water naturally detoxifies our bodies which helps keep the skin looking supple and clear. Hydration is key ladies. When you are dehydrated it can make your skin look dull and dry. This also slows down the detox process which may cause acne. Staying hydrated will give us the sunkissed skin we crave.
Exfoliating removes dead skin and allows new skin to the surface. This is how we get that natural glow. Using a mild exfoliant for your face is recommended at least twice per month. Use circular motions when exfoliating. This gets the blood circulating as we give ourselves a gentle face massage.

3. Get plenty of sleep.
Sleep is when our body heals and recovers from the day. It is also when it has to remove toxins through our bodies to the exit point. Yeah, I know TMI LOL!
4. Wash your face.
Washing your face in the morning and at night with a mild cleanser like natural soap is recommended. It is sooo vital to use the purest forms of cleansers on your face. Remember we are trying to remove toxins from our faces so that's trying to use products in their most natural form. For example, if you have dark spots try to use a natural remedy like turmeric and lemon juice before buying drug store products that add more chemicals to your natural skin care routine.

5. Use a Moisturizer.
After washing your face make sure you apply a light moisturizer. This is recommended to add some of the moisturize back to your face that you've washed off during the cleaning process.
6. Don’t touch your face.
I know this may seem crazy, but some of us have a bad habit of touching and picking our faces. During the course of the day, your hands touch so many things that you may not realize irritates your skin. How many of us are guilty of looking in the mirror just before we get out of the car and notice something on our faces and immediately tries to get rid of it with our finger SMH. Yikes !! We didn’t even think to wash our hands first. This is an entry point of bacteria to our faces.
Attention pimple poppers don’t do it! I repeat don't do it. I know it's hard but popping pimples creates a hole for more bacteria to enter and it may leave a bruise or a dark spot that we will have to remedy later. Try to let your pimple pop on its own. Your body is a well-oiled machine, let it do what it’s naturally built for.
7. Limit your sugar intake.
This is the hardest thing for me. I know we all love office donuts or snacks that help to keep us awake at the job, but they are literally yummy treats that form those ungodly pimples later. Sorry but, this also goes for sodas and alcohol. I know I know it hurts, but we will get through this together.
If you follow these crucial skincare tips I promise you will see a marked improvement in the way your skin looks and feels. Eating lots of fruits, berries, and drinking water is a great way to detoxify your skin. I know everyone is concerned with getting their summer bodies, please don’t forget about our glowing faces. Put your skincare work in too.
