Understanding the skin and discovering what works best for you and what works directly against you is the first step to improving it. To feel good in your own skin, it’s so important to be patient with the process and be gentle with your journey. I like to say I’m a work in progress!
Now when it comes to skin, everyone is going to need different things so it’s time to look a little closer and find out what it may need more of and what it may lack. Exfoliation, cleansing, and moisturization are all important steps for a good routine, especially for Self-Care Sundays! Discovering the problem areas on your skin through products, nutrition, and your environment will help you see a greater difference in radiance and glow. I have tried my fair share of products to help improve my blemishes and complexion, but along the way, I found some good go-to’s!
