I recently had the opportunity to get a facial and chat with lifestyle_liv. She just relocated to LA from the Bay Area to follow her dreams as a skincare professional. Her studio is SO cute and she is extremely knowledgeable about skincare and gave me the best facial. I have recently gotten really into skin care, so it is fun to treat myself and keep my skin looking the best it can.

These photos were taken right after I got home from my facial, no makeup on. It looks like I have highlighter on!

Without further ado, here are some skin tips that you may or may not know/need to be reminded of!

+Stay hydrated! It is important to drink enough water, but it is also important to “eat enough water”. Eating foods like, watermelon, oranges, celery, tomatoes grapefruit, apples, and lettuce will provide you with lasting hydration.

+Always remove your makeup! Your skin will age, your pores will never forgive you for clogging them all night, and breakouts will ensue. I like to use my MIA 2 brush to make sure that EVERYTHING is gone.

+Always wear sunscreen. I used to go tanning a ton and had a lot of sunspots. This made my skin so splotchy and uneven. Now that I have gotten a few different facials to eliminate them and I always wear sunscreen, my skin is SO much smoother and I do not have to wear so much foundation to cover everything.

+Exfoliate 1-2 times per week! Does your face ever look dull? Exfoliating the dead skin off will make it glow and look super fresh.

+Don’t forget to wash your pillowcase! I sleep on my face and notice that when I don’t wash it routinely I start to have little breakouts, this is because dirt and oil are transferred onto my pillow case and then my face lays on it all night. Yuck! Also make sure to wash anything that touches your face regularly (your hands, glasses, etc)

+Diet! Your diet has a large impact on your skin. Eliminating soda, white bread, fried foods and candy will improve your skin and decrease breakouts.

+Last tip: Find a skincare professional who can assess your skin and find the best skin care regimen for you. There are so many harsh products at the drugstore, make sure you know exactly what you are putting onto your skin!
