FACT: Slip 3. Get your scrub onEnsure you

FACT: Beautiful, healthy, clear skin starts with good habits. It’s
the smart choices you make throughout the years that add up and pay off,
not always genetics as we’ve come to tell ourselves. In some way, yes
we are genetically programmed to age a certain way, but genetics are now
only thought to be responsible for only 20-30% of ageing. The rest, is
up to you. Good habits, the right products and caring for your skin the
right way, every day is essential.Our 5 expert tips are the perfect place to start…1. Say no, no NO to soap!The
stuff that’s used to hold soap together are in an alkaline base (high
pH balance). This strips away all the water and natural oils from skin,
causing the skin’s surface to dehydrate. Your skin needs moisture in
order to be healthy. Without this, sensitivity, acne and dry skin become
aggravated and worsen. Opt for a sulphate (SLS) free cleanser that is
formulated for your skin type.2. How do you sleep?Did you know the second cause of wrinkles is sleeping? Yep, exposing your skin to the sunthen squishing your face into a pillow for around 2,500 hours per year while you sleep is
literally like ironing wrinkles into the skin. If you want to prevent
premature wrinkles, you might want to consider how you lie on your
pillow. You can also invest in a silk pillow case, we love the
pillowcases from Slip 3. Get your scrub onEnsure
you are exfoliating regularly with good, natural based exfoliator.
Regular scrubbing not also makes your skin instantly smooth, it boosts
circulation and removes dead, dry skin. Try our Sweet Citrus Facial ScrubTIP:
When you want deep exfoliation, do it longer, not harder, as you
cleanse your skin. This will ensure maximum exfoliation without the
damage to your skin.4. Give yourself mini at-home facialsRegular
at-home facials can reveal clearer, softer and more radiant kin. You
can really give your skin extra results, above and beyond your normal
skincare routine.First, make sure you double cleanse to remove all traces of makeup, then exfoliate with a mild facial scrub (like BodyBlendz Sweet Citrus Facial Scrub). Next,apply
a serum of your choice, (if you aren’t sure, go for something hydrating
with Hyaluronic Acid) then finish it off with your favourite facial
mask. While that’s on, run a warm bath, pop in some of your
favourite oil, light some candles and create a relaxing atmosphere. Your
skin will love the extra attention and your mind will love the extra relaxation.5. Sunscreen. All day, every day.We
cannot preach this one enough!  Studies show that nearly 80% of sun
exposure is incidental exposure. Yep, incidental. Things like walking to
your car, driving, and sitting in your house next to windows exposes
your skin to the sun which leads to sun damage from wrinkle-causing UVA
rays. As we know, sun exposure is the #1 cause of premature ageing! Use a
minimum of SPF 30 every day, all year round. There are so many
formulations these days, from oil-free to zinc based to mist thatyou’re sure to find one suitable for any skin type.
