5 Things
Women With Perfect Skin Always Do

We all know
them – women with perfect, gorgeous, flawless skin.

They all
live in different places and use different skin care products, so the answer
isn’t a magic serum or lotion or potion. (Although I swear by all the lotions
and potions that I use, and won’t trade in a single one of them!)

There are 5
things that women with perfect skin all do, and that no matter which skin care
products you are using, if you’re not doing these 5 things you won’t make it to
skin care perfection.

They Exercise


They all do
some form of exercise regularly. (Not necessarily running marathons – you have
to be super careful as an outdoor runner to keep your skin and yourself
hydrated and to be saturated in facial SPF) Be it yoga or spin class or hiking
or going to the gym, girls with perfect skin all move their bodies one way or

They Drink Lots Of Water

You can’t
have perfect skin and be dehydrated. It’s a simple equation – great skin needs
tons of water. Just for basic good health your body needs 8 glasses of water
each day, great skin likes a little more.

Girls with
perfect skin tend to shy away from high sugar drinks, avoid sodas, limit coffee
and tea and only drink alcohol sparingly.

They Make Sleep A Priority

enough sleep you will never have perfect skin.

JLo, who is
famous for her spectacular skin says she gets 10 hours sleep per night. I
cannot even imagine what it must feel like to have the kind of support with
home and children that enables you to just rack out each night for 10 hours!
For those of us that fall into the mere mortal category 8 hours each night is
the ideal for good health and for great skin.

They Eat Clean

What you put
into your body will be reflected on your skin.

Women with
perfect skin tend to eat a pretty clean diet, most of the time. The occasional
slice of pizza or drive through meal probably doesn’t hurt, but in general
these women avoid those foods like the plague, opting instead for diets rich in
fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, quality fats (like avocado).

They Use The
Right Cleanser

I can’t
stress how important this is! Sensitive skin, dry skin, irritated skin so often
are caused and exacerbated by using the wrong formula of cleanser. The wrong cleansers
can strip the good oils from the skin, sometimes making the skin desperately
make more oil, other times leaving it roughed up and dry. Women with perfect
skin use cleansers that dissolve and remove makeup and cleanse away impurities
and balance their skin.

My favorite cleanser is Memebox I’m Cleansing Oil, available online at Memebox.com
