Q. I usually get lazy and neglect my skin at night. I’m starting to see this bad habit take its toll. What do you recommend for a simple p.m. skincare routine?
Dr. Linda Miles D.O.M. responds:
You’ve heard it before: get your beauty sleep! And, it’s true. A good night of sleep plus a basic nighttime skincare routine is the best way to look and feel better for the long haul. I know that is easier said than done, but think of it this way: nighttime is the best time for skin to naturally repair itself back to a healthy, youthful radiance. Benefit from this restorative process, and fight that sleepy urge to ignore your skin at night, with this simple skincare routine before you hit the sack. It should take no longer than two minutes, and trust me, it’s worth it!
BB Creams are the newest miracle product to hit the beauty scene. First appearing in the Western beauty market only a short year ago, many traditional beauty Bombshells are still trying to understand why they’ve caused such a commotion. Let’s talk about the ABCs of BB creams and find out what they can do for you and your beauty routine.
Germs are everywhere, but sometimes we don’t consider the fact that germs and bacteria actually live on our skin. We’re all aware that we need to wash our hands frequently, follow basic food safety practices and avoid touching people and objects that we know are infected with our bare hands. We tend to think of bacteria as germs that cause illnesses; however, new studies suggest that a healthy amount of normal bacteria can help prevent diseases. When it comes to our skin, though, we often associate bacteria with breakouts, clogged pores and congested skin.
We’ve all been told a thing or two that we think is fact but in reality it is a rumor, a myth, a big fat lie. It happens. Your girlfriend hears it from her sister, who was told by a friend who saw it on TV, and it usually goes a little something like this: “So I just heard, you don’t have to wear sunscreen every day!” Yikes. Bad information can take you down a path you don’t want to go down, from bad food recommendations to an hour wasted watching some show your friend recommended. Sometimes fact and fiction just need to be separated.
OK, you and I may not want to admit it, but fall is upon us. Even though we aren’t brandishing our bare skin in this cooler weather, we can keep our sexy summer skin – even under our sweaters. With my patented (no, not really) three-step routine of “polish-primp-pamper” you will have healthy, glowing, supple skin all season long.
