10 Things all Women with Great Skin Do

If there's one thing we all want, it's healthy, flawless skin. Our beauty experts are here to give you their best tips to achieve your most-radiant skin yet!

#1 - Get plenty of beauty sleep

Your body boosts blood flow to your skin while you snooze, which means you awake to plumper-looking skin and a healthy glow.

#2 - Always remove makeup before bed

Makeup that is left on the skin's surface before bedtime can get pushed deeper into pores, causing dull skin, clogged pores and can trigger a breakout, or worse, an infection.

#3 - Drink plenty of water

Without adequate water intake, skin appears duller and wrinkles and pores more prominent.

#4 - Wear SPF every day

Wearing SPF every day, year round, can help prevent sun spots and skin discolorations as well as slow down the development of premature aging skin.

#5 - Exfoliate regularly

Adding an exfoliant a few times a week can help boost skin's natural renewal process by removing dead cells from the surface.

#6 - Mask weekly

The right face mask can help hydrate skin, remove excess oils and help improve the appearance of pores. They're also an excellent way to help pull out impurities.

#7 - Use a daily serum

Serums are a great way to target skincare concerns because they penetrate deeper to deliver active ingredients.

#8 - Sleep on clean sheets

Bed linens capture dirt, saliva, dead skin cells and other contaminants that can clog pores and cause breakouts.

#9 - Don't touch or pick skin

Picking at acne or other irritating spots can introduce more bacteria, increase inflammation and slow the healing process. Instead of touching the area, try applying a spot treatment.

#10 - Relax and recharge

Taking time to relax your body and your mind can decrease stress levels which in turn can reduce skin inflammation and breakouts.
