On the subject of self-care and skincare, I’d say this is something I get asked a LOT. I do not conceal the fact that I am 43 years old, have dry skin and take great pride in looking after myself. Personally, the topic of skincare is pretty significant as I always didn’t have such good skin. The way I take care of my skin has and continues to be, a work in progress. Being a makeup artist has made me very aware of skin habits, products and ways to better the way we care for ourselves. Today, I want to tell you my three golden rules for taking care of your skin, no matter what your age is.
This should not come as a surprise, our skin needs sleep on a daily basis, the more rested we feel, the less stressed and moody the body will be. Now that my children left the infant phase, I couldn’t be more elated for full eight hours of sleep at night. My second child was a great sleeper but while under the age of one, I had to wake up to feed her and this interruption definitely made a difference on me. Lack of sleep leads to increased levels of stress hormones in the body, this is something vital for our skin. I have a routine when it comes to my sleep and like skincare, it helps a lot. My routine includes, cleansing, moisture, quiet, and a set time every night.
#2 USE SUNSCREEN
Sun damage can age our skin and is the #1 reason for hyper-pigmentation and can lead to skin cancer, if abused. Sun exposure is a well-known risk factor for melanoma skin cancer. I stopped going in the sun years ago and honestly, this a decision I do not regret. If I go in the sun, I will wear SPF, hat and you will find me in the shade or an umbrella. There is plenty of research about the benefits of not abusing sun exposure and how this plays out in our aging process.
#3 TAKE SUPPLEMENTS
I started using Glow by Nature Made® – Skin Moisture + Sleep. The formula contains melatonin to help support healthy sleep‡. I purchased online at Target (these can also be found at vitamin/supplement aisle at Target retail stores), the delivery took all but three days, perfect for a busy working parent who loves shopping on the internet.
