So, it’s probably no surprise to y’all to hear how obsessed I’ve become with skincare over the last year or so. I honestly never thought i’d care so much about it. But, I now find myself researching it constantly, learning about ingredients, and different skincare tips and tricks! Today I want to share with y’all 3 simple skincare tips that I swear by – for healthy glowing skin!
Tip #1: hydrate hydrate hydrate
I’ve never had super dry skin, so I honestly never realized the importance of hydrating your skin until recently. (Now that we’ve moved to CO, my skin has become super dry actually. Also don’t judge my nails haha def need to get these done soon!). Anyway. Did you know dehydration is a top cause of skin issues? Breakouts, fine lines, uneven skin tone, etc.
So first of all – drinking a ton of water will make the world of a difference for your skin. Try to get at least 8 cups a day in. My goal is 96oz a day! Whenever I’m consistently drinking alot of water, I can tell the biggest difference in my skin.
In addition to drinking lots of water, having a bomb hydrating skincare product is huge. I am SO excited to share this new aqua infusion oil-free gel cream by Tula with y’all – just launched today! I’ve been testing it out this week and y’all…it is amazing. Your skin will thank you forever for this. This cream is basically like your skin’s 8 glasses of water it needs in a day.
This gel cream is incredibly light and so hydrating. I love that it’s formulated with natural, plant-derived ingredients and of course probiotics, like all of Tula’s products! This gel cream will lock in your skin’s hydration and improve your skin elasticity (hello youthful skin!).
I put this gel cream on after I cleanse and tone, before applying other serums! Don’t forget you can get 20% off any Tula product with code LAURENSIMS
Tip #2: Collagen
I won’t go into too much detail here (because I did this blog post all about the many benefits of collagen), but collagen is magic for your skin! I’ve been putting Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides in my coffee or in my protein shakes for about a year now and it’s made such a difference in my skin. Collagen helps your skin look more full and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines by plumping up those areas (in the best way possible). I think it really gives your skin a glow! I take it every single day!
Tip #3: SPF
Okay, tbh this is another thing I didn’t really care about up until a year or so ago. BUT SPF is so vital for your skin because of how much damage the sun causes. The sun is the culprit of sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and can also cause skin cancer. SO HELLO let’s protect our skin y’all!
I never found an SPF product I really loved until I tried this Tinted SPF product by Drunk Elephant. You don’t have to get the tinted one btw, but I love it because it gives your face the prettiest glow! I put this on every single morning after I do my morning skincare routine (I apply it after my moisturizer).
I love this product because it’s so much more than SPF. This tinted daily sunscreen is loaded with potent antioxidants to help defend from free radicals and environmental aggressors. Umbra Tinte delivers essential moisture and helps minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking healthy and youthful and glowy!
What are some of your skincare types for youthful glowy skin?! You guys HAVE to try out the 3 products I shared today if you haven’t already. I promise you will love them as much as I do!
