5 Daily Skin Care Musts

There are about two hundred products on my to-try list on any given day. Lotions, luscious creams, miracle treatments, oils, soothing serums, masks, plumpers, toners, conditioners--and that’s not even including makeup. Or new products! It’s all very overwhelming and I realize I will never try them all. You feel me, right?

So how do we tackle this always-growing list of skin-perfecting hopes and promises?

We prioritize. We accept that there will always be fancy creams and pretty bottles calling our names, but that we simply don’t need them all. We choose a few staples and we ignore the rest. At least until we inherit that very large sum of money from our wealthy great uncle, once removed, who always said we were his favorite.

L'Occitane

Let’s talk about what our skin needs now:

  1. Clean and exfoliate! Dead skin cells give skin an ashy appearance. They make skin dull and coarse to the touch. Using a loofah in the shower will slough off dead cells and leave skin brighter, softer, happier. An exfoliating scrub, like a sea salt or sugar scrub, can give a bonus moisturizing effect so you’ll be ready to shine and rock a new spring dress. For your face, try an exfoliating face wash, mask, or face scrub (gentler and finer than a whole body scrub) for a quick and affordable at-home micro-derm alternative.
  2. Protect. Too much time with our friend, the sun, will cause skin to wrinkle and leave us with annoying discolorations, age spots, and broken capillaries. Of course, the sun is incredible and spending a certain amount of time loving it each day will give you the Vitamin D your body needs. But while basking in the sun might sound luxurious and relaxing, enjoying too much of it causes damage and can even lead to skin cancer and other serious problems. Make it a habit to apply a fab sunscreen or moisturizer with SPF first thing in the morning, and keep some sunscreen in the car for impromptu strolls. Check out this fabulous tinted moisturizer from Skinnygirl Face & Body - love it! Croc looks way better on a tote, wouldn’t you agree? Ooh! Or pumps! (But not feet.)
  3. Moisturize and hydrate. Use a lightweight moisturizer for daytime, one with SPF will save an extra step. If you have extra dry skin, use a nighttime moisturizer for bonus points. And above all: stay hydrated! Drink plenty of water. As Zoolander would say, “Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty.”
  4. Pucker up, buttercup. Lips can sometimes be forgotten in a skincare routine. Lips work hard all day long, from eating to talking to smiling to smooching. Keep a moisturizing lip balm in your purse, desk, car, bedside table, etc. and remember to apply often. A lip scrub will help to soften chapped or dry lips and makes them baby soft! Bonus tip: your lips will carry a red lipstick longer and evenly if they’ve been exfoliated and prepped.
  5. Pamper your hands and feet. By nature, hands and feet get the most abuse. Hands are busy picking up, putting down, pulling, pushing, writing, holding, shaking, waving, typing, poking, washing, drying. Give those hands some love! A great cream can go a long way, as can a good cuticle treatment. Likewise, feet are, well, walked on; shoved into uncomfortable (gorgeous) shoes and expected to keep quiet and look pretty. I’ve learned that my feet benefit the most from nighttime moisturizing. They get hours of unabused time to recover from walking around all day and for moisturizers to do their thing. A quick scrub both cleans and preps the skin to absorb a deep moisturizing cream

Remember, the first step to beautiful healthy skin (and hair, eyes, teeth, everything) is to take care of yourself. Eat well, exercise and always stay hydrated. We’d love to hear what your favorite skincare products are--there’s nothing like a first-person account. Stay lovely, ladies!
