Top 10 Skincare Tips :Essential hints for younger-looking skin

Tip 1
Focus your regimen on your primary skin concern like breakouts or aging and select your products accordingly.

Tip 2
Don’t overload on products. Too much of anything can cause irritation, strip skin of moisture, and make it more sensitive.

Tip 3
Don’t wash your face until you’ve washed your hands. If you use a washcloth, make sure it’s a fresh one every time so there’s no bacterial buildup.

Tip 4
When cleansing or exfoliating, use tiny circular motions upward and very gentle pressure.

Tip 5
Use warm water to rinse. Hot water can over-dry. Cold water won’t rinse off the cleanser.

Tip 6
Don’t over-clean your face. Cleansing more than twice a day can over-dry your skin.

Tip 7
Toner actually prepares your skin to accept moisture better. While skin is still damp, smooth on moisturizer to seal the moisture in.

Tip 8
It’s not just what you apply but also how you apply it. Take a few extra seconds to massage in moisturizer to spark circulation and enhance radiance.

Tip 9
Go gently when you apply eye cream. Dot in a full circle all around the eye. Never pull or tug. Use your ring finger to apply. It’s the weakest finger so you won’t apply too much pressure.

Tip 10
Smooth a little eye cream around your lips every day. The area around the lips, like the area around the eyes, is very delicate and requires extra care.
