Skin Care Tips

Don't pop pimples. I know it's tempting, but DON’T DO IT! Popping pimples can push infected material (pus) further into the skin, leading to pain, more swelling and redness, and even scarring. If you notice a pimple, let it be. Besides, unless you have chronic acne, you know it won’t be there forever. Grab an acne spot treatment, dab it on, and keep on stepping. You know you’re beautiful.
Drink plenty of water, ladies. Drinking 64 ounces of water daily is essential for healthy skin because it flushes out toxins. Getting your eight glasses in is a must! Remember that fruits and veggies count as part of your daily water intake, so stock up on them.

Oatmeal is a common kitchen staple used in skin care.  Add milk and honey to oatmeal grounds to form an excellent masque for the skin.  An oatmeal masque benefits oily skin by reducing in the appearance of oil.

It is believed that cucumbers help to reduce swelling around the eyes.
They are great natural eye pads. They make a nice treat after a long days work.

Eating crappy food CAN make your face breakout. I know for a fact that if I go on a fast food binge, my skin pays for it. Some problem foods that may cause pimples or breakouts include chocolate and other candy, fast food, French fries, sugar, pizza and soda. To get your skin in tip-top shape, you don’t have to give up all of your guilty pleasure foods, but rather, eat them in moderation.

Put honey (a natural humidifier) and brown sugar into a bowl, microwave them for five seconds and leave it on your face for 10 minutes. It's acts like a clay mask so the mixture tightens your skin.

This is a quick fix if you have an important meeting and need to get rid of the giant bags under your eyes: Put the refrigerated spoons on your eyes for 10 minutes.
