12 Skin Care Mistakes

  1. Wash your face every morning and night.  You must wash your face both morning and night!
  2. Neglecting your neck.  When I say “face” I am referring to the entire face and neck area.  Use the same skin care regimen on your neck that you use on your face.
  3. Wear sunscreen every day.  The sun has damaging effects on the skin.  To keep your skin looking young, protect it by wearing sunscreen.
  4. Wash your hands before you wash your face.  Where have your hands been and how many germs are on them?  Before ever touching your face wash your hands to not spread any germs.
  5. Wash your makeup brushes every 2 weeks.  Product, oil, germs and bacteria can get built up in your makeup brushes.  You don’t want to be spreading that all over your face.
  6. Wash your face before and after you work out.  You don’t want to work out and sweat with makeup on.  Neither do you want all that sweat sitting on your face for a long time.
  7. Use an eye cream every night starting at age 20.  The first place wrinkles will show up is around the eye area and prevention is key.  You may look and feel young, but those nasty little wrinkles can show up by age 25.  So, eye cream, eye cream, eye cream.
  8. Exfoliate at least once a week.  It’s important to exfoliate the dead skin off, this will soften wrinkles and brighten skin.  If you have severe acne skin, consult with a doctor before exfoliating.
  9. Don’t over do it.  To many products can lead to a bad thing.  If your skin is red, dry, irritated, flaky… pull back the reigns on your regimen.  Try something more simple and see how your skin responds.
  10. Never ever pick!!!  Leave that zit and red bump alone!  Use an acne spot treat and let it run it’s course.
  11. Drink plenty of water.  When the skin is dehydrated it will appear dull and lifeless.  Staying hydrated is the secret to a glowing complexion.  Drink 10 glasses of water a day.  Keep in mind: if you drink coffee or alcohol you will need to drink more water to compensate for the dehydrating effects.
  12. Get enough sleep.  Our bodies and skin need adequate rest to perform at their highest ability.  I can give tons of skin care advice to you, but if you aren’t getting enough sleep those dark circles under your eyes and dull complexion won’t be able to be covered up forever.

  5. Hi Rachel! I love your blog! I have been using the vitamin C microdelivery peel by philosophy and I love it. My question is though, can I substitute this for exfoliating or do I still need to exfoliate when I am not using this? Any advice would be helpful!

  6. Hi Rachel! I have a hard time finding a good morning time moisturizer that has spf in it. Any reccomendations? I have combo skin and I deal with acne.
