While modern skincare uses state-of-the-art research and technology, at-home skincare should also incorporate some easy things that don't require a Ph.D. or extensive esthetician training. While a Classic French Facial with Jill Bucy Skincare is part of the equation when it comes to radiant, glowing skin, there are some things you can do right this minute at home that can make a huge difference in the health and appearance of your complexion.
- Wash your face with cold water. It stimulates circulation, reduces swelling and tightens pores.
- Step away from the face scrub. Over-scrubbing can irritate sensitive skin, make redness and rosacea worse, and aggravate breakouts. Instead, use P50, which gently exfoliates and balances the skin.
- Drink a big glass of room-temperature water right away in the morning; add a twist of lemon to alkalize and soothe the skin.
- Eat foods with antioxidants (such as blueberries and other berries, small red beans, red kidney beans, cooked artichokes, and cranberries) to strengthen your skin against the summer sun.
- Keep your skin additionally hydrated by using moisturizer every day. This creates an additional barrier to protect the skin.
