Your Best Skin In 2016

your best skin in 2016
Your best skin in 2016. I’m not sure how this is possible, but I seem to get older as each year passes. Since I can’t stop that from happening (although I’m desperately trying to figure it out and if anyone already did, please tell me) what I can do instead, is not let my skin reveal my true age… Ever.

Know your skin. Many of us are addicted to trying new creams and potions, but that’s not always the best idea for your skin. The key is to tailor the treatment to your particular needs. There will be times when you need to shake things up, like when the seasons change or as you age, or even if you have any hormonal fluctuations. For the other days, stick to your tested, tried-and-true products, the ones you can always count on.

Simplify your routine. It can be so tempting to have a complex skincare regime. Surely, each cream or oil does something different, right? Well, that’s not always the case and less, really is more. Your skin can only absorb so much and you are actually doing yourself a disservice by using too many different products. Instead, look for products like serums, which give you a more concentrated dose of ingredients.

Eat your vitamins. Many of us live stressful lives and we don’t always get enough vitamins from our food (for a number of reasons). Coupled with a lack of sunshine during the winter months, we can become vitamin deficient.  Before you run out to the nearest drugstore, however, go see your doctor or a nutritionist to see whether you are lacking any essentials vitamins.

Workout regularly. Without getting too specific, working out (aka moving) is good for your health and when you are healthy it comes through on your skin. In addition, there’s nothing quite like the post workout glow to keep you looking beautiful all day.

Become an expert. Honestly, do you even know what the ingredients in your face cream are? Do you know what they do or why they are being used in the first place? Do you know how they get absorbed into your skin and what happens once they do? Of course, no one is expecting you to really become an expert, but you should be asking questions and if you aren’t getting the answers you need then choose a different product.

Not all of us are lucky enough to be born with flawless complexions and unfortunately there is no one great cure all for your skin but doing lots of small things will quickly add up.

What are your tips for having the best skin?

    I love this article. I started eating healthy the first of the year. I am working on me for a change. This article has some very useful information. Thank you for sharing

    1. Oh I’m so glad it helped! It’s tough to do a whole about face so I really believe that it’s all the little things that you do which count the most.

  2. I agree with all your tips, especially the one about working out. Unfortunately, that is the one thing I struggle with the most to fit into my schedule! I another thing I swear by is a gentle retinol product and being happy!


    1. Yes retinol is a great product, totally agree thank you for mentioning it! With the workouts, I think that if you get up in the morning and do a whole bunch of push ups and then before you go to bed you do a whole bunch of squats every day, you’ll find that you can keep your strength up even when you don’t have a ton of time to go to the gym!

  3. Such great and easy tips. I definitely found that simplifying my skincare routine worked best for me, although I’ve really got to work on that working out part, lol.


    1. Ha! The working out part is everyone’s downfall it seems. I think that just moving is already on the right track.

  4. Haha! I keep getting older every year too! What is up with that??? Great tips, especially about eating your vitamins, working out, and using the right products.

    1. I don’t know, how do we stop it?! Glad you enjoyed the post!

  5. Great tips – water is my number one 🙂
    Alexander @ Mr Essentialist

    1. Yeah definitely agree with you there!
