Believe it or not, people with good looking skin tend to have the same daily habits. As I always say, the worst thing you can do for your skin is to do nothing at all. Our skin is our largest organ and it needs and deserves a lot of tender loving care. And if you are in pursuit of good skin, then there are few habits you should consider developing.

Most successful people share the same best practices. Most people with good skin also share the same best practices. Taking care of your skin, cleansing, nourishing, hydrating and protecting every day is essential. Here are 5 habits that can help you to improve your skin.
Cleansing is Crucial
When you look at someone and notice his or her perfect, clear, glowing skin, there is one thing for sure: they never forget to cleanse their skin. Washing your face is the first step towards perfect skin. And, cleansing must be done every morning when you wake up and every evening before bedtime. There are no excuses. Our skin collects so many impurities it would take hours to list them all. But here are a few to think about: oil, dirt, makeup, germs, pollution, hair products, perfumes and on and on we go. If you want perfect skin, then cleansing is a no-brainer. Unwashed skin can lead to dullness, dryness, excess oil buildup, clogged pores, blackheads, breakouts and even fine lines and wrinkles. And, it is sooooo unnecessary. It only takes a minute to effectively cleanse your skin. Choose a cleanser that fits your skin type. The right cleanser will help to target dryness or oiliness, in addition to removing the impurities. Look for skin hydrating and soothing ingredients like Aloe vera and antioxidants. And ladies, if achieving perfect skin is your goal, just know that you will never reach it if you don’t wash your makeup off every single night before bedtime. Pore-clogging makeup and wrinkle-causing pollution must be removed!
Never Forget to Moisturize
Most people with perfect skin have a daily skin care regimen that is as commonplace as brushing their teeth and taking a shower. It’s not optional. And they all understand and embrace this. Applying a day and nighttime moisturizer is something that they won’t skip. Moisturizer helps keep the skin hydrated and more elastic. Meaning, it maintains flexibility and returns to its original shape. When your skin is hydrated and healthy it looks fantastic. A daytime moisturizer that contains SPF to fend off the suns damaging rays is essential, as UVA and UVB rays of the sun can wreak havoc on the skin. They can not only burn the skin, but they can also be a primary contributor to the signs of premature aging, spotting, sagging and even skin cancer. And equally essential to daytime moisturizer is a rich, hydrating night cream, which is a simple skin care step that will deliver benefits to the skin while you sleep. No matter what, if you are in pursuit of perfect skin, then moisturizing is a daily must!
Exfoliation is Essential
If you are an avid skin scrubber, then you totally understand the power of exfoliating your skin. When you are looking to achieve perfect skin, scrubbing a few times a week is essential. A good exfoliating scrub helps remove dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, instantly revealing the healthy skin cells below. Your skin will be smoother, softer and more glowing in appearance.
Men and women with good looking skin know a lot of tips and tricks to use when in a pinch. A perfect example is splashing your face with cold water in the morning. This will help “wake up” your skin after a long night. It will also help tighten up the appearance of your pores. When you know you look tired, splash away to instantly energize the skin. Are you prone to under-eye puffiness? In addition to a firming eye gel that should be applied every morning, people with good looking skin also know to cut back on salt and alcohol, and always get a good night’s sleep. Remember that it’s called beauty sleep for a reason.
Understanding the Products
Some people will never achieve perfect skin. Why? Because they just can’t seem to follow directions or read the product benefits before using. It’s always important to use products that are most suitable for your skin type. Oily skin, dry skin, wrinkled skin, blemished skin – all have products that have been specifically developed to help with that particular skin situation. People with perfect skin have a great understanding of their personal needs and seek to use only those products that can help. If you have oily skin, choose a cleanser that targets sebum. If dry skin is a concern, look for products that provide essential hydration to the skin and are a bit richer in texture. And most importantly, for the best results, follow the directions! Applying products in the wrong order or putting on too much or too little can give you limited results, or perhaps even negative results. So be a bit more savvy and read the labels before you start using.
Pursuing a path to good skin is easy. Just implement these few habits into your daily regimen and you are sure to see and feel a difference in your skin. Remember, the healthiest skin is always the most beautiful!
