In times of uncertainty it's easy to let your skin care routine slip. We've put together a few quick tips that anyone can do to help boost your confidence and keep your skin glowing and healthy.
1. Focus on the quality of your products not the quantity.
Using too many products can lead to over-processing and irritating the skin. For example, Acne is an inflammatory skin condition so adding irritation to an already inflamed situation will only make it worse.
2. Don't skip the sunscreen.
Just because you're spending more time inside that doesn't mean you should skip applying sunscreen. It doesn't matter how expensive or good your products are if you don't use SPF daily to help combat inflammation and hyperpigmentation.
This continuous spray provides high-level UVA, UVB and IRA protection for sporting and outdoor activities.
Nourishing oils soften and smooth the skin, and powerful antioxidants enhance the protection offered by five different types of UV filters.
3. Find out what's going on from the inside.
Your skin is a reflection of your lifestyle. Many skin conditions are caused by things like diet, stress, hormones, and environmental changes. Take a few minutes to write down anything you think you might need to eliminate to help your skin repair and stay healthy.

Citrus fruits and spinach enhance collagen production
Lycopene, found in tomatoes and pink grapefruit, protects against sun damage.
Plus, the most common food you should avoid is sugar.
4. Don't pop your pimples or pick your skin.
We're all guilty of popping sometimes... Even though we all know that we should avoid doing it, let’s repeat why: Improper and unsanitary techniques will lead to more acne. Or even worse facial scarring. When you get the urge to pop a pimple, use a spot treatment instead. Just grab a Q-tip and directly apply face acids over your acne instead of your whole face. Viola. Spot treatment.

5. Drink 👏 water 👏.
Aim for eight glasses a day. Sure, you're peeing more, but you're also flushing out daily toxins and improving your natural *glow*.
