I cannot stress this enough, skin care is so important and super essential for your overall health & well being. Skin is your body’s largest organ. It serves as a protective barrier between your insides and the rest of the world, helps regulate body temperature and acts as a filter. Skin exists in a constant state of growth, with old cells dying as new cells are forming. It holds body fluids in, preventing dehydration, and keeps harmful bacteria out. It’s affected by every aspect of your life – from what you eat to where you live. Healthy skin is better able to fight signs of aging, heals much faster and staves off potential disease better than unhealthy skin.
Proper skin care is crucial if you care about your physical appearance. However, taking proper care of your skin is not only about looking good, it’s about staying healthy. When skin is unhealthy it loses elasticity, which can make it sag and appear thin, dry and dull – whereas healthy skin appears clean and radiant. Poor skin care habits can lead to rashes, sores, acne and wrinkles. Unhealthy skin is more susceptible to disease, infection and is more likely to scar after an injury.
Skin is constantly growing and changing, so you have to continually care for it. Keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day, and maintain a balanced diet to provide the vitamins and minerals your skin needs.
Skin needs moisture to survive, so avoid using hot water when you wash and cleanse your face – heat sucks moisture from your skin. Also, avoid harsh or chemical-heavy soaps, as they strip moisture from your skin while polluting it. Put in the effort to purchase products that are free of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, and other non-organic substances.
I take care of my skin on a daily basis! I wash my face every morning and moisturize my body after every shower. I take that time for myself because not only is it beneficial for my over all health, but it makes me feel like an absolute goddess for the rest of the day! ♡
Skin Care Products that I absolutely Love & Adore
“Miiko Skin Co’s Saving Face Wash is a gentle cleanser for softer and smoother skin. Made with five ingredients to deliver results and peace of mind. It is a vegetable-based castile soap that is blended with organic coconut oil, extra-virgin olive oil, local honey, distilled water, and citrus essential oils to create a gentle daily facial cleanser you will love.”
Love, love, love this skin care line! I’ve been using Miiko Skin Co’s Saving Face Wash for over a year now and am completely head over heels! Seriously. I use this product every single morning and it always leaves me feeling refreshed, clean and rejuvenated. I remember the first time I used this face wash there was already a noticeable difference in the cleanliness and brightness of my over all skin tone.

This toner is the absolute best!

On a side note, not only to you reap the health rewards of taking care of your skin on a daily basis, I personally love the fact that you don’t have to wear foundation! What is the point of covering up such radiant beauty?
