It’s true when they say you are what you eat. Also what you drink and staying hydrated is paramount to a perfect palette.

The sun’s rays, as glorious as they feel on your skin, can be damaging. UVA rays are often attributed with premature signs of aging, sun spots and wrinkles, while UVB rays are the ones responsible for a sunburn and do the most damage to your skin’s surface. Wear SPF all year round (you can find it in moisturizer and concealer as well as sunblock) and keep your healthy glow.
Removing dead skin cells is a key to a brighter complexion, but exfoliating can also increase cell turnover, help reduce the appearance of fine lines and gets rid of those pesky blackheads. When choosing the right exfoliant for your face, look for words like micro-beads or gentle as harsher scrubs can leave your skin red and irritated.
