washing your face regulary

It's the skin advice as old as time. Wash your face morning and night. The usual protest against this expert advice is that in the mornings, your skin is still clean from the night before. WRONG! Overnight, your skin cells are hard at work, which means they're secreting toxins and oils. Wash your face in the morning to remove all that waste and secure better performance from your daytime products. And don't forget to wash to the hairline that sometimes is missed and bumps form from hair product build-up and sweat.

your diet

Make sure you're getting your greens in. Green vegetables promote hydration and keep your skin glowing, thanks to their liver-cleansing properties. You really are what you eat, and sugar, alcohol and processed foods can do a number on your complexion. They're inflammatory, and can create toxic buildup, which dulls and dehydrates your skin. What you can't sometimes get enough of from food alone, consider adding a daily whole health vitamin pack and supplements including biotin, B-complex, Vitamin D, E, C and A, and omega-3 that keep you looking and feeling energized. There are many women's health products that are all natural and good for hair, skin, and nails but nothing can stand against a healthy combination of all of the above habits to achieve your best complexion. Then you're truly 'waking up like this'.
