Do you pay enough attention to your skin care routine? When I was a teenager and in my early 20s I never paid much attention to my skin. I didn't have anyone to teach me the right way to take care of my skin. I barely ever even washed my face, much less used any other facial products. Now that I am older, I know A LOT more about my skin than I ever though I would. I know that I wish I had spent more time on my skin care routine as a young adult because my skin isn't nearly as beautiful as it should be. I wish I knew then what I know now and I am sure there are other women out there that were in the same boat as I was. I hope that these tips help some of you.
1. Use Sunscreen on your face and body EVERY day. I cannot stress this enough. Whether you are walking to the mailbox or spending a day in the sun. It's very important that you where sunscreen on your face every day! You can mix it in with your foundation, where it under your foundation, or just apply it without any other products. There are even beauty products that you can purchase with SPF in them. There's nothing that ages your skin faster than too much sun. If you don't want loose, aging skin, or even worse, skin cancer, then please remember apply sunscreen daily.

2. Use natural Vitamin C Serum on your face regularly. If you haven't used Vitamin C serum on your face before then you are seriously missing out. I had never used it until I started blogging. Most people don't even know this exists. The fact is that the plant-based minerals in serum are great for moisturizer, replenishing, and brightening your skin. Brighter and rejuvenated skin is equal to younger looking skin!

3. Use anti-aging products that actually work! It's true that a lot of anti-aging products don't work as they claim to. Do your reseach before purchasing anti-aging products. Search google and Amazon for honest product reviews before making a purchase or commitment. Also, remember that what works for someone else may not work for you. You have to find out what works for YOU and run with it!

4. Get rid of those dark circles under your eyes. The one thing that can make age you quicker than anything else is dark circles and bags under your eyes. It makes your skin look worn out and rough. There are plenty of honest companies with products that will help with these. You can use products that will help just for the day or products that will help for a lifetime.

5. Use moisturizer every day, even if you have oily skin. This was the biggest skin care technique that I had to get a grip on. I've had oily skin my entire life, so I never thought that I NEEDED moisturizer. The truth is folks, that oily skin doesn't mean moisturized skin. There is a huge difference! Oil sits ON the skin. Moisturizer soaks into the skin moisturizing in and preventing acne. I wish I had known this my entire life because I suffered from adult acne until about a year ago. Now that I regularly use moisturizer, I feel and look like a brand new woman!
