Wear Sunscreen (Even Indoors––Seriously)

Sun damage is a major cause of aging and risky health complications further down the road. Get ahead of it now by priming your skin (every day) with a layer of sunscreen before applying your makeup. Many top beauty brands have perfected the skin-saving SPFs. Invest in a formula that is oil free and lightweight enough for all-day wear. No clogged pores, no impurities.

Avoid Touching & Picking

Pesky blemish? Leave it be! There’s nothing worse than touching and picking at your face. ICYMI, your hands are dirty. Even if you’re washing them. Touching your face frequently also makes you more susceptible to contracting viruses like colds and flus. Break the habit, stat. We believe in you.
