You do not have to go for weekly facial and spend your whole paycheck on 2 products at Sephora to achieve flawless skin. Some small tweaks in your daily life and skincare routine can help a lot with achieving a glowing and healthy complexion.
Dehydration will take a toll on your skin, and so will the lack of beauty sleep. A small amount of dehydration and/or lack of sleep will cause your body to function in a less optimal way. Try to drink at least eight cups of water a day - 2000ml. If you need a reminder of the amount of water you drink, check out the HidrateSpark water bottle. It syncs to your phone and will light up to remind you to drink water.
As for sleep, try clocking in at least seven to eight hours of sleep. This will get rid of your dark circles and inflammation. We get it though, it is almost impossible to squeeze in five hours of sleep sometimes, let alone seven. On nights like these, try a dark under-eye circle removal mask. This mask works as a cooling gel pack and it is meant for soothing while you sleep. This mask is super handy since it is reusable and very easy to travel with. Often times, when you are on the road or even on vacation and lacking a few extra hours of sleep to explore, getting this on, will help decrease puffiness, fine lines, and give you a quick cooling fix. Not to mention, this is a very clean process and nowhere near those messy drippy mask sheets.
Another great skin product that we bow down to is the rose quartz face roller. We have talked about this product in a separate blog post when it first went viral, but even until now, we are still all obsessed with it. The roller is a great quick tool to help calm the skin. Those days when you wake up and your face is just not having it. This can help depuff and energize your skin. A super great product right before your morning cleanse. Similarly, you can also add this to your nightly routine and wake-up with a more cheerful skin.
Once a week you should consider doing a mask. Finding the right face mask will help you get rid of excess oil and improve the appearance of your pores. We recommend using a sheet mask at night in order to help your skin absorb the excess product overnight. Sheet masks help a lot with hydration and calm the skin. This will give you a more soothing and plump to your face. If you are all about natural products on the skin, check out the DIY facial sheet mask maker. You can use ingredients from your refrigerator, like lemon, orange juice, milk, cucumbers and create your own masks. Different ingredient will help with different skin flaws you may be dealing with. And best of all, you will know what you are putting on your face!
