They cleanse gently, once a day
Instead of scrubbing your face, let the cleanser sit on your skin for a few seconds and break down the makeup, dirt, and oil. If you're oily, use a gentle foaming cleanser in the morning and evening.
Unless you have oily skin, you only need to wash your face in the evening, with a creamy cleanser and lukewarm water. Give the cleanser time to work.
They re-apply sunscreen
You know that the number one way to prevent skin aging is to apply sunscreen, so of course you already use a morning moisturizer with an SPF of (at least) 30. What women with gorgeous skin also do: they reapply sunscreen every few hours. Sun-shielding ingredients are only effective for about two hours—long enough to protect your skin on a morning walk or commute but not throughout the afternoon.
They use Vitamin A cream every night
The first time I meet someone, I immediately know if she's using a retinoid because her skin is glowy and smooth," says Miami dermatologist Leslie Baumann, MD. Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives that have been proven to boost collagen, which reduces fine lines and evens out discoloration.
They break a sweat
Raising your heart rate once a day makes your skin glow. Because exercise improves your circulation and oxygen capacity, it improves your complexion. And we know that the skin has endorphin receptors, which may also explain why it is positively impacted by aerobic exercise.
They drink plenty of water
Remember to drink minimum eight glasses of water everyday. Women with good skin make sure that their bodies stay hydrated!
