1. Pat, Don’t Rub When it Comes to Moisturizer

We know how important moisturizing is, both morning and night, for our face and skin. But are you moisturizing correctly?

One of our top beauty secrets is to gently pat moisturizer onto the skin, instead of rubbing.

Rubbing can actually be too harsh for the delicate skin on your face, causing irritation. You’ll get better results if you use the tips of your fingers to softly pat the product onto your skin.

2. Exfoliate

Do you want that glowing, dewy look to your skin, as if you’ve just come back refreshed from a holiday? If so, the key is exfoliation— not just for your face, but for your entire body.

Exfoliation uses grains, chemicals, or a tool like a loofah to scrub away dead skin cells.

Since it removes dead skin cells, your skin will look brighter. However, it can also unclog pores, boost circulation, and stimulate collagen growth.

3. Warm Your Lash Curler

One of our top beauty tips for face is to do with your eyelash curler. Before using it to curl your lashes, warm it up gently with hot water or your hairdryer.

Once warm, it will curl more effectively and the curl will also last longer.

However, be careful not to heat it too hot, or you could burn your skin.

4. Use Retinoids

How can you help your skin look its best as you age, reducing fine lines and wrinkles? One of the best ways is to use retinoids.

Retinoids, which are derivatives of Vitamin A, are antioxidants. Retinoids increase skin cell turnover, increase collagen production, and can help remove age spots and fine lines.

Retinol creams or serums should be applied in the evening, before bed, as they can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Always wear sunscreen too— especially when using retinoids.
