Tips for Beautiful Skin!

  • Your lifestyle can have a big impact on the health of your skin. Getting seven to eight hours of sleep a night can help your skin “recharge” from the day. Lack of sleep can cause dark circles and undereye puffiness as well as an overall dull complexion.
  • Drinking plenty of water helps plump skin from within for a youthful radiance.
  • Be sure to wear sunscreen every day to protect your skin from the signs of premature aging.
  • Get in the habit early of a simple daily skin care regimen that includes at least a cleanser and moisturizer for your skin type – like Botanical Effects® Skin Care. A freshener and a mask can provide additional benefits based on your skin’s needs.
  • Don’t forget to wash your face before you go to bed. Removing makeup as well as the environmental impurities that settle onto skin throughout the day will help keep your skin looking healthy and radiant.
