Tip #1: Know your skin type: Normal skin, no dry spots, or excess shine. Dry skin, rough patches, tightness, and flakiness. Oily skin, slick feelings, and shine. Combination skin, oily in the T zone with areas of dryness.
Tip #2: Use a cleanser every day in the shower. I recommend you The Clean Truth Foaming Cleanser from Ole Henriksen ($10-$30), perfect for all types of skin.
Tip #2a: This is an extra beauty tip for all of those who want to go a little extra, get a Clarisonic ( Mia1 – $129; Mia2 – $169). This facial cleansing brush is the perfect beauty tool for everyone, get the brush that works better for your skin type. I recommend you to get the Sonic Radiance Cleansing Brush Head if your skin is normal, dry, or a combination. If your skin is oily and you currently have acne get the Acne Cleansing Brush Head and for him get the Alpha Fit Men’s Cleansing Brush Head removes oil.
Tip #3: Use an anti-aging. At the age of 25, we start losing a percentage of collagen. Collagen, if you don’t know, is the vitamin that prevents wrinkles and lines. My must-have product is the Genius Liquid Collagen by Algenist ($115). Two other products that I tried and still use are the Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate from Clarins ($89) and Truth Serum from Ole Henriksen ($48).
Tip #4: Moisturize your skin day and night. Try the new Essential Energy line from Shiseido. Immerse your skin in hydration to counteract dullness, roughness, and the appearance of fine lines, while treating it to texture and fragrances that stimulate the senses. Essential Energy Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 20 is $48. You can use the Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel Cream ($48) during the day or at night; works amazing for dry skin.
Tip #5: Rejuvenate your skin from the inside out with dietary supplements. I recently discovered two amazing supplements one liquid from Dr. Brandt and one in capsules from HUM Nutrition.
