Beauty Experts’ Best Skincare Tips of All Time

Tip #31: Sleep on a Clean Pillowcase

Whether you sleep on a cotton or a silk pillowcase, it’s always important to wash your pillowcase in order to avoid breakouts and a buildup of dead skin cells, which could result in dullness.

Tip #32: Watch Your Posture

Making sure your posture is on point can help minimize wrinkling on your décolletage. To prevent posture-related wrinkles, sit up straight and keep your shoulders back — it’s also important to try and avoid staring down at your phone all day.

Tip #33: Visit a Board-Certified Dermatologist

Having trouble building a skincare routine for your skin type? A board-certified dermatologist can properly diagnose your skin type and help you curate a skincare routine that’ll address your skin concerns. 

Tip #34: Resist Popping Your Whiteheads

When you notice a new spot on your skin, you may be tempted to start pinching and poking at it. But, as you probably already know, that’s not a great idea. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), picking at a whitehead is a job only a licensed dermatologist should take on. When you pop acne blemishes at home, unwanted side effects such as permanent acne scars, more noticeable acne, more painful acne and even infections are more likely. Leave it be or visit your dermatologist for assistance.  

Tip #35: Don’t Forget About Your Butt

Just like how you mask your face, treating your bum to a body mask can help slough away dead surface cells and leave your skin ultra soft. We like the Kopari Pink Soufflé Body Mask because it’s formulated with dragon fruit extract to brighten and kaolin clay to clarify so you’re left with smooth, soft skin. Use it once or twice a week while in the shower.

Tip #36: Don’t Over-Cleanse Your Skin

Although you may want your skin to feel completely clean of all debris, over-cleansing is actually one of the worst mistakes you can make. This is because it disrupts your skin’s microbiome — the microscopic bacteria that make an impact in the way our skin looks and feels — and can dry out your skin.

Tip #37: Try a Hydrating Overnight Mask

Overnight masks can help hydrate and replenish the skin during its regeneration process — which happens while you’re asleep — and leave the skin looking and feeling soft, smooth and hydrated come morning. We’re big fans of the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa and the IT Cosmetics Confidence in Your Beauty Sleep Night Cream.

Tip #38: Reapply Your Sunscreen Over Makeup

If you went the tinted sunscreen route and didn’t apply any additional makeup over it, reapplying is easy as pie. All you have to do is take the formula you used initially and apply the same amount over your facial contour. If you applied foundation, blush, highlight, contour, etc. atop your sunscreen, that’s where things can get tricky. Reach for a physical sunscreen and gently work it over your makeup. These formulas are available in creams, sprays, powders, and more, making it easier to find one that works best for your skin. A spray sunscreen will likely be your best bet to reduce the chances of ruining your makeup. Just make sure to apply your formula of choice the right way by following the pack instructions of use. Even though you’re reapplying your sunscreen, you want to make sure you’re still using the adequate amount to ensure the best level of protection.

Tip #39: Target Dull-Looking Skin With a Liquid Peel

Is your complexion looking a bit dull? Try incorporating a gentle liquid peel into your routine, like the Kiehl’s Milk-Peel Gentle Exfoliating Toner. A combination of lipo-hydroxy acids, almond milk and emollients gently exfoliate without stripping your skin of much-needed moisture. The formula is so gentle, you can use it every day for a soft, refreshed complexion.

Tip #40: Target Puffiness With a Caffeinated Eye Cream

If allergies are making your eyes puffy, you might want to consider reaching for a caffeinated eye cream to help brighten and reduce the appearance of puffy, tired eyes. We love the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid + Caffeine Hydrating Eye Serum. Hyaluronic acid helps plump up the skin while caffeine depuffs and tackles dark circles. The triple-rollerball applicator also offers a cooling massage effect.

Tip #41: Exfoliate Your Lips

Just like the rest of your body, the skin on your lips can experience a buildup of dead skin. To help reduce the look of peeling or flaky lips, exfoliate at least once a week with a lip scrub. Scrubs can be a gentle yet effective way to slough off dry, dead skin cells on the surface of your lips and can leave them feeling soft and smooth.

Tip #42: Take Care of Your Hands

Like our necks, our hands can be one of the first places on our bodies that show our age — or at least the premature signs of it. Fortunately, there are some precautions that you can take in order to offset the effects. Keep your hands covered when using cleaning products or other harsh chemicals, moisturize often and apply sunscreen religiously.

Tip #43: Protect Your Lips With SPF

Sun protection is an absolute must, and your lips are no exception. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, lips have no melanin, which means they’re even more at risk of sun damage than the rest of your skin. Protect and hydrate your lips year round with an SPF lip balm.

Tip #44: Go to a Pro for Extractions

While you shouldn’t attempt an at-home extraction, an appointment with a licensed esthetician for a facial and extraction may be the pore-unclogging solution your skin needs. 

Tip #45: Try Slugging

If your skin needs help holding on to its moisture, you may want to try slugging. Slugging is when you coat your face and neck with a small amount of a petrolatum-based product like the CeraVe Healing Ointment. It acts like a sealant to trap moisture and to prevent water loss from the skin.
