Women With Perfect Skin Always Do
We all know
them – women with perfect, gorgeous, flawless skin.
live in different places and use different skin care products, so the answer
isn’t a magic serum or lotion or potion. (Although I swear by all the lotions
and potions that I use, and won’t trade in a single one of them!)
There are 5
things that women with perfect skin all do, and that no matter which skin care
products you are using, if you’re not doing these 5 things you won’t make it to
skin care perfection.
They all do
some form of exercise regularly. (Not necessarily running marathons – you have
to be super careful as an outdoor runner to keep your skin and yourself
hydrated and to be saturated in facial SPF) Be it yoga or spin class or hiking

are caused and exacerbated by using the wrong formula of cleanser. The wrong cleansers
can strip the good oils from the skin, sometimes making the skin desperately

skin use cleansers that dissolve and remove makeup and cleanse away impurities
and balance their skin.
