Looking good does not have to entail spending hours primping in the morning or weekly trips to the local salon. With these time-tested beauty suggestions, looking good has never been easier:

Drink Lots of Water

Faking great skin takes a lot of work. To keep your skin looking smooth, clear, and youthful-looking do what every major Hollywood actress do: stay hydrated. Proper hydration makes it easier to expel toxins and pathogens from the body. Drinking 8 glasses of water daily helps keep moisture the skin and the organs healthy!

Pro tip: try eating fruits and veggies with high water content. These fruits include berries, melons, green leafy vegetables, and citrus fruits. Fruits and veggies high in water content hydrate the system while also giving a dose of antioxidants for youthful-looking visage!

Invest in a Good Eye Cream

The delicate skin around the eyes is prone to wrinkles. In fact, the skin around the eyes is the first to show the signs of aging. That’s why it is important to invest on a good eye cream to keep the skin around the eyes fresh and youthful looking. We recommend nourishing eye creams formulated with collagen. These eye creams will reduce puffiness and accelerate cell turnover.

Our pro tip: Use your eye cream to prevent laugh lines too! Eye creams are more potent than your average facial moisturizer. These products are specifically designed to banish wrinkles all over the face.

Never Sleep with a Full Face

Make a habit of removing every trace of makeup on your face before retiring to bed. Invest in a gentle but effective makeup remover to melt foundation, waterproof mascara, and eye makeup. We love oil cleansers because these products effectively remove every bit of makeup without drying the skin! Never sleep with your makeup on or you just might wake up to a face full of zits!

Pro tip: Ran out of your favorite oil cleanser? Use raw coconut oil or olive oil as a makeup remover then cleanse the face using a facial wash designed for oily skin. Coconut and olive oil will melt waterproof makeup without clogging the pores. A facial wash made for oily skin will cut through the oil, leaving your skin squeaky clean!

Replace Serums with Face Oil

Nervous about applying oil on your face in place of your favorite serum or moisturizer? Don’t be! We cannot stress this enough, a light face oil will transform the texture of your skin! Face oils will go deep into the skin, prompting repair while softening the skin. Just a few drops of facial oil are enough to cover the entire face. You will also wake up to gorgeous, glowing skin in the morning, we promise!

Pro tip: Save money on face oils by using raw extra virgin coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil. These lightweight oils nourish the skin and hydrates deeply without clogging the pores! They are also loaded with antioxidants that protect the skin from oxidative stress!

Daily Light Exercises

Working out will make you feel good inside and out. Sweating it out in the gym or in the comfort of your own home flushes out toxins from the body while boosting the metabolic rate. Daily exercises are also proven to combat depression, anxiety, and stress!

Pro tip: Turn every household chore into a workout. Lift canned soups, clean the whole house and rearrange the furniture to burn off calories!
