9 Ways to Look Younger this Summer | KJ Relaxin

1. Exfoliate your face once per week.

Younger looking skin begins with healthy, hydrated skin.  Regular exfoliation is an important step towards clear and hydrated skin.  Exfoliation removes a layer of dead skin from the skin’s surface ― revealing beautiful, fresh skin underneath.  There are two ways to exfoliate: mechanically or chemically. Regular exfoliation, once per week if possible, will help create and maintain a summer glow!

2. Watch your eating habits; eat less processed food.

What you eat has a huge bearing on how healthy your skin will be.  Eating too many processed and fatty foods will create breakouts and dull, unhealthy-looking skin.  If you watch your eating habits and make it a routine to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, it will show in your skin.

3. Stay hydrated; drink plenty of water.

Your skin, like all your other organs, needs hydration.  Drink plenty of water to keep your skin looking clear and to maintain its elasticity.  You can also postpone getting much-dreaded wrinkles by keeping your skin and body hydrated.  Lack of hydration could cause your skin to become tight, dry, and even flaky. Keep track of how much water you are drinking daily.  If you have a hard time drinking enough water, try infusing water with citrus fruits for added flavor and health benefits.

4. Schedule regular facials ― at least once every 4 weeks.

Regular facials are not only awesome for your skin, but you will be able to get advice on your skin regimen by a skincare professional.  You will get the treatments you need during your appointment, and you will learn what you should continue doing to keep that youthful, summer glow.

5. Stick to your skincare regimen based on recommendations from a professional.

Your skincare regimen is your first line of defense against aging and unhealthy skin.  Getting advice from a medical professional (not just from Pinterest DIYs) will ensure you are doing what is right for your skin.  Book your free consultation at KJ Relaxin today, and discover if you are doing all that you can to keep your skin young and healthy.  We have a wonderful line of skincare products that will help you get your regimen back on track.

6. Wear sunscreen all the time (Minimum SPF 30).

It is easier to remember to wear sunscreen during the hot summer months with trips to the pool or beach.  However, it is important to wear sunscreen year round! We recommend you ALWAYS wear at least SPF 30 on your face and body to protect your skin from aging spots, skin cancer, fine lines, and wrinkles.  Try out KJ Shade, a light, barely-there feeling antioxidant facial sunscreen & makeup primer.  It is composed of only natural ingredients: titanium and zinc oxides, and natural melanin ― a widely known anti-cancer fighting agent.  It gives full-spectrum protection against photo-aging UVA & UVB sun rays along with a fabulous pearl-matte finish for healthful, beautiful skin.  Its non-greasy texture makes KJ Shade ideal for oily skin and suitable also for acne and rosacea-prone skin.

7. Wash your face every morning and every night.

It is so important to wash your face twice daily.  When you wake up in the morning, washing your face will rejuvenate and wake up your skin; it also cleans any oil left behind from a night of sleep.  After a day of wearing makeup, it is vital to remove your makeup before bed. Leaving makeup on your face will not allow your pores to breathe and can cause breakouts, wrinkles, and dull, dry skin.

8. Hydrate your skin.

After washing your face, make sure and rehydrate with a good-quality moisturizer.  Find the right moisturizer for you based on recommendations from a skincare professional.  If you aren’t sure what type of moisturizer to use, schedule a consultation today at KJ Relaxin to learn about your skin’s needs!

9. Use eye masks and under-eye cream.

Your under-eye area can reveal sign of aging before any other part of your face.  Use eye masks and under-eye cream to keep your skin looking taut and reduce puffiness. Your eyes will thank you!

Following these nine steps consistently will help your youth and energy shine through ― whatever your age. We here at KJ Relaxin specialize in helping you maintain that beautiful face in the mirror, and getting pampered a little, always benefits the entire body!!
