“…be patient and give the (skincare) products you’re trying a few weeks to truly judge whether they work or not…”
My go-to tip for flawless skin is to eat well and stay hydrated with water and healthy fruit and veggie juices. The power of great nutrition can significantly impact the health of your skin!
When it comes to trying different products, be sure to consult with a pro and do your research on what works for people with similar skin as yours.
Lastly, be patient and give the products you’re trying a few weeks to truly judge whether they work or not. Of course don’t use anything long-term that is blatantly causing irritation or pain.

“…dehydration causes wrinkles and can increase signs of aging. You should be drinking the same number of ounces as pounds you weigh…”
Drinking water is incredibly important in hydrating your skin.
Fun fact: dehydration causes wrinkles and can increase signs of aging. So drink up lady!
You should be drinking the same number of ounces as pounds you weigh. Example, I weigh 118lbs therefore, I should be drinking 118 ounces a day.
I make this happen by ALWAYS having a water bottle with me. Whether I’m sitting at my desk, running errands, watching Netflix, or traveling.
If plain water isn’t your thing, add cucumbers or your favorite fruit (I love cantaloupe water).

“Many people underestimate how important it is to exfoliate on a regular basis. The older you are the more often and more intense your exfoliating methods should be…”
In my opinion, flawless looking skin is smooth, soft, and plump with a healthy sheen. The best way to accomplish this is through exfoliation.
Many people underestimate how important it is to exfoliate on a regular basis. And, the older you are the more often and more intense your exfoliating methods should be.
I’ve been “addicted” to skin scrubs since I was 15, starting with the Buff Puff sponge in the 1970s.
Now that I’m almost 60 (Yikes), I use two different exfoliating methods:
- Manual scrubs
- Chemical peels
I make a homemade manual scrub by simply mixing water (use oil if your skin is dry) and sugar. Make a paste, massage all over, then rinse and moisturize.
Sugar contains a natural enzyme to help break down the glue that holds dead skin cells together. I do this a few times a week in the shower.
A few times a month, I also use a lactic acid chemical exfoliator. Lactic acid is best for dry skin. You apply the serum with a cotton pad, leave it on for a prescribed time (like 2-4 minutes), then rinse well and moisturize.
Your skin will be able to absorb your anti-aging and moisturizer creams so much better when it’s clear of those nasty dead skin cells. Plus, your face will glow and have a luminous healthy sheen!

“My number one tip for flawless looking skin is to always moisturize both day and night!…”
My number one tip for flawless looking skin is to always moisturize both day and night! If you’re not moisturizing your skin daily, your skin is going to look dry and dull (even with makeup) and it simply won’t look good. Incorporating the habit of using a lightweight moisturizer in the morning and a moisturizing night cream will seriously make all the difference in the way your skin looks, and the way your makeup applies on your face.

“My #1 tip for flawless looking skin is gut-health and gratitude…”
My #1 tip for flawless looking skin is gut-health and gratitude.
- Our gut is the main motor of our immune system and organs (aka skin). If the foods you are eating aren’t nutritious for your health, the skin can’t produce its best version of itself.
- Gratitude, because the mind is the most powerful tool we have, and our internal/external reality is a direct result of its perspective and habits.

“One of my biggest natural beauty tips is to use a dry brush regularly…”One of my biggest natural beauty tips is to use a dry brush regularly. It helps exfoliate your skin for softer, brighter looking skin. Massaging the skin also boosts circulation to increase blood flow and help the body get rid of waste. It’s also relaxing and can help boost your mood, so I start my day by dry brushing. With just a few minutes a day, you can improve your skin and your mind!

“I think my number one tip for flawless looking skin would be to never touch your face…”I think my number one tip for flawless looking skin would be to never touch your face. I always make it a point to never touch my face throughout the day because you never know what kind of bacteria may be on your hands. We type, write and do a lot of other things with our hands, and touching your face (especially your acne) can irritate your skin and cause even more breakouts.
