Many celebrities endorse beauty products and we rush to the store to get them because we also want beautiful skin. Salma Hayek is famous and living the life with her billionaire husband first in France and now in England. She’s picked up some European beauty tips, such as the benefits of not washing your face in the morning. It seems to be working for her because the Mexican actress is almost 50 and her skin looks amazing!
What’s her beauty regimen? She cleans her face at night, takes off her makeup and puts on moisturizer, and in the morning she just splashes her face with water and adds more moisturizer. It’s that simple.
There are many face washes in the market that contain tons of chemicals that promise to zap away acne and give you radiant skin. But, over cleansing is one of the biggest mistakes women make. What most of us don’t realize is that your oily or dry skin doesn’t come from the fancy moisturizer you use, it helps, but the moisture comes from inside your body.
The job of your moisturizer is to help reinforce the barrier, that top layer of skin. There are very simple things you could start doing in order to have better skin.
First, eat better, avoid greasy foods, eat more vegetables and antioxidants, and don’t forget to drink lots of water. Being dehydrated is the number one cause of dry skin. Make sure you’re getting 8 hours of sleep, but don’t overdo it because too much sleep can cause bags under your eyes.
Make sure you sleep on your back because sleeping face down puts weight on your face, which results in a face full of lines from your pillow and puffiness. Plus, don’t forget to wash your pillowcases and sheets because they absorb germs from your face and hair, which can then lead to acne.
