Your skin says so much about you – how well you look after yourself, how much you sleep, what you eat – yet at times it may seem like the part of yourself you have the least control over. While there is little you can do to fight certain factors, like genetics or hormones, there are rules you can follow that will bring you significantly closer the best skin you’ve ever had.

1. Cleanse Your Face
In order to ensure proper skin cleansing, it is necessary to know your skin type and its needs. Once all makeup is properly removed, use the Olay ‘Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Super Cleansing System’, which cleanses four times better than if you did it manually. Designed to cleanse, exfoliate, and prepare your skin for your daily routine, it can be used on all skin types and will help reveal more youthfully radiant and healthy skin.

2. Moisturize Your Skin
Pick the right moisturizer for your skin, but, above all, moisturize every day! If you tend to have oily skin, use a lotion or a water-based moisturizer. If you have dry or sensitive skin, it is best to use a cream-consistency moisturizer. Whatever your skin type, make sure your product contains hyaluronic acid and sun protection. The Olay ‘CC Cream’ not only moisturizes, but it is also a color corrector, sun protector, and has an anti-ageing component.

3. Watch Your Diet
Always bear in mind that your food regimen is just as important as your beauty regimen, and one cannot work without the other. Make sure to maintain a healthy diet, filled with fruits and vegetables, and to regularly exercise to always look and feel your best.
4. Drink Enough Fluids
Replenish your skin as you would replenish your body. Moisturizing will help hydrate your skin from the outside, but it is crucial to have a minimum of eight glasses of water per day to hydrate your skin from within.
5. Live Healthy for Healthy Skin
That’s what it all comes down to. Proper exercise combined with healthy food and beauty regimens whilst protecting your skin from external elements is the secret to healthy, youthful, and radiant skin.
