We all know that when it comes to skin, there are many factors that can play into its appearance. With that in mind, we’ve complied a few habits that seem to really contribute towards having beautiful, healthy looking skin. How many can you check off?
- Have a set skincare routine
Having a great skincare routine is foundational to having great skin. It’s often the first thing that people think of when they are ready to take care of their skin. Having a set routine that you follow every day and every night is crucial for you to see any results from your products. Consistency is key and that holds true to your skincare as well.
You do not have to have an over-the-top routine in order to have results. In fact, the more simplified your routine, the better. Start off with the basics: cleanser and moisturizer such as Antioxidant Foaming Cleanser from Deluvia’s Dead Sea line and their Miracle Aloe Cream as moisturizer. Once you have your basics down, you can start adding different products for your specific needs.

In today’s world, people laugh at the thought of 8 hours of sleep. With work, kids, and everything in between, finding time to rest can be tricky but oh so necessary! While you are fast asleep, your body is actually hard at work repairing itself. I know you’ve all heard about muscle repair when you rest. Well, the same applies to you skin!

- Wear sunscreen
This is one that many people forget about. It doesn’t matter how much you’ve perfected your skin care routine. It doesn’t matter how much money you spend on your skincare products. If you are not wearing sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun, your skincare routine will not get the best results. Sounds harsh but it’s true! UV rays can do a number on your skin and if you are not doing anything to protect your skin from them, you are not giving your products a chance to really work their magic. So please do your skin a favor and use sunscreen!
