1. Morning exercise improves skin’s circulation, giving you a refreshed look and decreasing the appearance of under eye circles.
  2. Wash with warm water not cold or hot, warm water will dissolve down oils on the skin.
  3. Plump, lifted and wrinkle – free skin is due to collagen and elastin in the framework of your skin.  Use products containing Vitamin C and daily application of SPF to kick start your skin.
  4. Clean your cell phone often, suntan oils, sand, pollen, and just life can wreak havoc on your phones screen, bacteria goes straight to your skin when you take that call.
  5. Stay Hydrated – up to 60 percent of your body is made of water, so it’s no surprise H2O plays a major role within the skin.  When skin is adequately hydrated, it is able to ward of signs of aging such as wrinkles, loss of elasticity and inflammation, promoting a dewy glow and clear completion.
  6. Exfoliate – exfoliation is a necessary part of a skin care routine because it removes the dead cells that dull complexions and clog pores.  Make microdermabrasion a monthly ritual.
  7. If you have a breakout or start to feel tiny bumps under your skin schedule a LED Acne treatment (Light emitting diodes) or LEDs, are tiny bulbs that give off an extremely low dose of energy powerful enough to kill acne bacteria.
  8. Change your skin care regimen to serums instead of creams.  Serums tend to be lighter in texture and smooth into the skin, avoiding the flush of sweat when you walk out into the humidity.  A challenge for anyone in the Florida heat.
  9. Clean your make up brushes - During the summer your skin is oiler, so using your makeup brushes on your face can cause bacteria and oil to get caught within the bristles resulting in clogged pores and break outs.
  10. Sleep - Lack of sleep ages your skin leading to lackluster skin, fine lines, and dark circles under the eyes.  When you don’t get enough sleep, your body releases more of the stress hormone cortisol. In excess amounts, cortisol can break down skin collagen, the protein that keeps skin smooth and elastic.
