The 5 Things You Are Doing Right With Your Skin Care Routine
Are you as tired as I am of all the articles telling you what you are doing wrong to your skin? Or all the top ten lists of toxic chemicals that can cause you harm?
We are long overdue for an antidote. So today I am bringing you a short list of what you are already doing right.
What a relief from all the fear and misinformation out there! Keep up the good work and remember to *supersize* each activity for increased results.
What You’re Already Doing Right For Your Skin
Walking increases blood flow and circulation. This, in turn, helps to bring more oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells allowing them to work efficiently. It releases endorphins and growth factors. Both help your skin to naturally glow; no highlighter needed.
Smiling women are the prettiest women! Laughter is a great way to de-stress and relax. Your facial muscles smooth out and lift up. The tension melts away and blood circulation is boosted. It looks great on you.
3. Eating fruits and vegetables
Yes to eating the rainbow! Don’t you just love the different colors and textures nature provides?
My favorites are the yellows and oranges- best for Vitamin A! This is the vitamin that helps to slow down the aging of the skin by preventing the breakdown of collagen and elastin.

4. Wearing Makeup
Did this one stump you as a good thing to be doing?
Well, I’m here to tell you that most makeup, especially mineral ones, have a reflective quality. They act like a million tiny little mirrors, reflecting the sun off your skin without using the synthetic chemicals found in most sunscreens.

5. Drinking Water
You know this one. We are 75% water and so hydration is what our skin craves. You are already drinking water every day. But many of us need to add in a few more glasses to meet the recommended quota and help our skin to flush itself. And a couple of squeezes of lemon wouldn't hurt either!
So there you go. You are already a skin care PRO!
