Everyone has a beauty ritual for their skin. Here are the beauty basics to keep your skin feeling fresh and healthy outside of the shower.

Cleansing Routine. Wash, tone, moisturize and repeat. Everyone’s skin is different some oily, some dry so find products that work for you and stick with them. Washing your face is a great way to start and end the day.

Sleep.  Sleep is probably the easiest and best thing you can do for your skin. By depriving yourself of sleep you are depriving your skin. So catch some zzzs and sweet dreams.

Water. While we are big fans of conserving this stuff your body needs it to flush out toxins and impurities. It helps keep your skin moisturized. Doctors aren’t joking when they recommend you drink 12 eight ounce glasses of water daily. Trust us you will enjoy drinking water as much as you do washing with it.

Exfoliation. So many scrubs to choose from and so little time. Exfoliation removes the old dead skin cells from the surface and leaves your skin soft, smooth and ready to be touched. Products like the Clarisonic can help you exfoliate the delicate skin on your face without damaging it.

Moisturize. Want wrinkles? Then you better lotion up! Don’t underestimate this classic beauty regiment. Using lotion along with other moisturizing products holds moisture to the skin and will help your skin to maintain elasticity not to mention battling redness and flaking.
