Fight oil with oil

Yes, you read it right. If your skin is already on the shiny side, the best skincare tip is to combat oil with oil! Your first instinct may be to combat oiliness by stripping the skin, but in reality it will just stimulate the skin to produce even more oil. Try serums and coconut oil, argan and marula instead, and zap the shine once and for all.

Protect your skin

Daily SPF protection is crucial for every skin type—especially here in Arizona. Always wear SPF 30 or higher and be diligent when applying. You should reapply SPF every 2-3 hours for maximum protection. And don’t skimp on cloudy days—UV rays can cause damage even when the sun is hidden!

Get regular facials

Facials are an excellent way to give your skin a boost—especially if you’re stressed or tired. They can help to keep your skin smooth, clear and healthy. No time to make an appointment for a facial? Do it at home! Apply a mask suited for your face for a power-packed complexion-saver.

Eat skin-saving foods

You can banish wrinkles, keep your skin soft and supple and get a radiant glow—one bite at a time! Studies show that certain foods can really work wonders on your skin. Here are 25 foods to add to your grocery list that are good for you and fantastic for your skin.

Update your beauty products

Each and every skincare product has its own shelf life. You don’t want to be slathering up your skin with expired products that either do nothing for your skin or could be damaging it. Here are some quick tips:

  • Mascara—replace every 6 month
  • Sunscreen—generally effective for up to 3 years if stored correctly
  • Anti-agers—usually effective for 3 months to a year

Be orderly

We’re not talking about lining up your skincare products alphabetically in your medicine cabinet. But rather, applying them in the right order. You need to make sure to apply them in the right order otherwise they won’t be effective. Always apply serums first, then your moisturizer. Serums are more targeted and have a higher concentration of active ingredients. As a rule of thumb, always apply products from lightest to heaviest.

Change it up

Don’t be afraid to switch up your skincare routine. If something isn’t working for you, it may be time for a change.

Drink lots of water

If you aren’t getting enough water, it can leave your skin looking dry and taut. Drinking lots of H2O will help your skin look supple and fresh.
