The Key To Healthy Skin Even When You Can’t get 8 hours of sleep

Skincare routines can take some trial and error, but once you’ve found yours you’ll realize it was well worth it.

Now hear me out, I’ve read a lot of articles, followed a lot of dermatologists and skincare influencers, but if you’ve tried everything and still keep having skin issues I highly recommend seeing a dermatologist. Ok, let’s begin!

I want to start a skincare routine I just don't know where to start.

I hear this often. Now let me  share  7 tips with you to ensure healthier skin.

  1. The most important piece of this puzzle before you put on any creams or oils or masks is to get your beauty sleep. Easier said than done. I know.

Let me say that louder for ME and the people in the back: GET YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP!

Good sleep is so important for your overall health, but I think we can all agree that if we get about 5 hours of sleep our face will out us.  I require a minimum of 7 hours of sleep each night to be a fully functional human being aka not a bitch. Honestly, it’s something I struggled with this past week because my daughter has been sick and most of my work has been done after her bedtime.

OK, let’s be real, it’s something I struggle with on a daily basis sick child or not. As a mom, I need some quiet time and couple time with my Boo Boo so that all happens after her bedtime. Moral of my story: get good sleep!

2. Wear SPF. Using at least SPF 30 regularly will help decrease your risk of skin cancer and prevent premature aging.

Yes we all need our Vitamin D from the sun, but all you really need is at least 10 minutes of sun on our arms and legs 2-3 times per week. What are you waiting for? Slather on that SPF 30!

3. Avoid smoking. Smoking promotes aging and contributes to wrinkles.

4. Use skincare that works well with your skin type. If you use products that are specifically formulated for your skin type it will help your skin look and fell its very best. 

5. Reduce stress levels. Stress can contribute to skin problems so please manage your stress levels. Stress can cause unwanted flareups in anyone who suffers from acne, eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea. Who wants that?

6. Wash your face. Remove dirt and bacteria on your skin when you wash up in the morning. Are you a heavy sweater like me? I do a little bit of strenuous anything and I work up a sweat. After you sweat it’s a great idea to wash your face so your pores don’t get clogged with bacteria. And at night we double cleanse to  remove makeup and sunscreen, and wash away any dirt our skin picked up during the day. 

7. Change your pillowcases and towels often. This is for all my sucias out there. I see you!  Bacteria can get trapped on our pillowcases and towels so if you’re having a problem with breakouts change these out 2-3 times a week. This will help clear up your skin. 

And now for the most important bonus you’ll ever hear:

8. Drink plenty of water. My skin is a good water indicator. It gets dry and my laugh lines are more pronounced when I haven’t drank enough water.
