What Do Women With Great Skin Do Every Day?



Unless your skin is prone to high amounts of oil production, normal to dry skin types only need to wash their face in the evening. Give the cleanser time to work. "Instead of scrubbing your face, let the cleanser sit on your skin for several seconds and break down the makeup, dirt, and oil," says Boston dermatologist Ranella Hirsch, MD. Use a cleanser that fights the signs of aging like REDEFINE Daily CleansingMask.

Apply and Reapply Sunscreen



The number-one way to prevent skin aging is to apply sunscreen. Make sure you’re using a morning moisturizer with an SPF of (at least) 30. Women with gorgeous skin also reapply sunscreen every few hours. Sun-shielding ingredients are only effective for about two hours. Take some time after lunch to reapply with an easy powder sun-shielding product such as ENHANCEMENTS Mineral Peptides SPF 20.

Nightly Retinoid Serum 


"The first time I meet someone, I immediately know if she's using a retinoid because her skin is glowy and smooth," says Miami dermatologist Leslie Baumann, MD. Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives that boost collagen production. Retinoid serums reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover, which evens out skin surface discoloration. Retinoids are available over-the-counter (as retinol) or with a prescription (as tretinoin, adapalene, and tazarotene). Support your nightly anti-age regimen with a daily application of retinoids found in products like REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum.

 Eat Oily Fish and Antioxidants



Salmon has a high content of high omega-3 which helps to hydrate skin from the inside out and reduce the inflammation that can cause skin redness, says Baumann. Antioxidant-rich foods such as dark berries, dark greens, and green tea fight free radicals that damage the cellular structures of the skin, accelerating skin aging.



Exercise improves your circulation and oxygen capacity and as a result, improves your complexion. "And we know that the skin has endorphin receptors, which may also explain why it is positively impacted by aerobic exercise," says Baumann.

Get 7 Hours of Sleep




The stress hormone, Cortisol, ages the skin and has been known to cause acne breakouts. Sleep reduces the cortisol level in our bodies. More sleep will add to your healthy complexion.
