Beauty + Wellness TV | Skin CareLet’s simplify:  Here’s a 5-minute self-care ritual comprised of 5 crucial skincare must-dos for powHERful women.

Daily ME-time ritual is necessary to sustain Super Hero status – and glowing skin – with only a few minutes in the morning and at night.

Tip 1:  Cleanse

We understand, some days when you come home, you fall asleep on the couch or you don’t have energy to expel.  Even if you don’t wear makeup, the build-up of toxins and free radicals from you going out and about every day can seriously cause fine lines and wrinkles.  If there is only one thing you have the energy to do, it’s to cleanse, twice a day.  Your skin will thank you!   Be careful not to over-cleanse; otherwise, your skin may overproduce oils to compensate.

Tip 2:  Serum

If you have limited time, skip the toner and go straight to a serum.  Serums are packed full of concentrated powerful antioxidants and nutrition to combat serious cases of dull skin.

Tip 3: Moisturize

Moisturizing your skin is key to achieving glowing skin.  Find a moisturizer that has Vitamin C, but only use anything Vitamin C based at night time as it has contraindications to sunlight.  Vitamin C helps to combat an array of skin problems such as pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and collagen production.  It helps your skin achieve that glow without all the harsh chemicals.  When choosing a product, look for a combination of Vitamin C concentration and how they’re stabilizing the vitamin C as it is a very volatile ingredient in the sense that it can go rancid quickly if the product is not stabilized correctly.  Moisturizer is meant to lock in the moisture from your serum – so finding one that has Vitamin C but doesn’t feel heavy on the skin is key.  For a morning moisturizer, use one that is loaded with antioxidants known to fight free radicals and help your skin cells maximize generation and resiliency.  Look for moisturizers that have CoEnzymeQ10, MSM, and Resveratrol.

Tip 4: Exfoliate

Finding the time to exfoliate twice a week is I-M-P-O-R-T-A-N-T.  It is the difference between dull skin and soft, supple skin.  Find one that is non-abrasive so you can use it twice a week minimum.  Dead skin build-up can suffocate your skin acting like a wall and not allowing oxygen or even your serums and moisturizers to penetrate very far into the skin.  By removing dead skin layers, you’re allowing your skin to breathe and absorb all of the hard work (and quality products) you are dedicating to your skin.

Tip 5: Treatment

If you really want to treat your skin, make a DIY face mask of equal parts honey and apple cider vinegar.  Leave it on for 30-minutes then wash off and apply your usual serum and moisturizer on top.  This is a treatment you could do every day – make the time for it as much as you can.

Remember – self-love through habitual skin care – it goes a VERY long way!
