Quick beauty tips for skin that looks great at any age!

Exfoliate twice a week to slough off dead skin cells, but don’t scrub too aggressively. This may cause rashes or even broken capillaries. A thin coat of sesame oil applied to the face and neck will act as a buffer before exfoliating.

Rub a drop of aloe vera on pimples. The plant has natural properties that reduce redness and inflammation, and it moisturizes the skin without clogging your pores.

Once a week in natural sunlight check your face to see how the product you are using is responding. If your skin seems to be flaking check to make sure that the product you are using does not contain AHA’s which can sometimes cause flaking and irritation to the skin especially when exposed to direct sunlight.

Instead switch to a day cream without AHA’s and save the the AHA’s for your night regime.

To wake yourself up in the morning, add a few drops of peppermint or rosemary oil to a sink or bowl of lukewarm water. Dampen a washcloth in the water and press it to your face 10 to 15 times. This will get your circulation going and the result will be a beautiful glow!
