Easy Tips for Achieving Goddess Skin

As I sit here on the eve of Summer Solstice and enjoy our gorgeous weather I thought to myself what a better night to write my next BLOG that I have been procrastinating for a while (FYI I can be an expert at procrastinating). The reason this is very fitting is because summer is a time that we tend to want to be free of wearing makeup, especially foundation on the hot days, or when you are wanting to enjoy the outdoors for a walk, or on the beach but, ugggg when our skin is not as healthy and flawless as it could be, we may not feel great about not wearing foundation. So I want to provide you some easy tips to achieve that Goddess Skin! Because you deserve to have flawless, radiant and youthful skin!

Cleansing your skin properly is the first step and tip to achieving glowing, flawless goddess skin. Not just cleansing but cleansing EFFECTIVELY. This means using a cleanser that is suited for your skin type and morning AND night. Did you know that if you don't wash your face at night you are aging your skin significantly faster? Our skin regenerates cells at night, so leaving all the dirt, grim, and makeup on from the day is doing damage to your skin. Also, I am finding that there are a lot of ladies especially the younger generation that are using makeup wipes. Wipes only clean the surface and do not cleanse deep enough. Not properly cleansing causes a build up of dirt, etc., leading to clogged follicles (pores), comedones, milia, breakouts, milia, comedones, skin irritations and aging. If you are not sure what is the right cleanser for your skin type, Daysdream provides a complimentary skin analysis to help you understand what products you should be using and what treatments are best for your skin type.

Using the proper toner for your skin type is the second tip and step for achieving that goddess skin you deserve. There are toners that are formulated for all the skin types, whether you have sensitive skin, mature skin, dry skin, oily skin or combination skin. Toners clean deeper than a cleanser will, and a lot of the times you will still see dirt on the cotton pad even after you have cleansed with your cleanser. Toners also help balance the pH of the skin, close and shrink pores and minimize sebum (oil) production if you have oily or combination skin.

Exfoliating is the third tip that help achieve beautiful flawless skin. Depending on your skin type it helps to exfoliate at home with a gentle scrub once to twice a week, after you cleanse, before your toner. Gentle home exfoliation helps to remove the surface layers of dead skin that is dull and lackluster in appearance. This helps to further clear out the pores, allows your moisturizer to absorb more and reduce skin problems. Don't forget the lips! They need love too! IMPORTANT, do not over exfoliate though. This can cause skin irritation and inflammation. Understanding your skin type and its needs is important here as well.
