10 Things Women with Gorgeous Skin Always Do
It’s no secret that most women want clear and radiant skin. The truth is women with gorgeous skin aren’t just lucky, they work at it. Here are 10 natural skincare tips to follow, no matter your skin type or what the current season is.
1. They never go to bed without washing their face.
There are definitely some nights when you’re ready to jump into bed without doing anything. You just want to take off your clothes, hop in and sleep. Unfortunately when you leave your makeup on, you’re also leaving pollution & dirt on. Your pores will absorb all that grime, all night. YUK!
Removing your makeup before bed can make a HUGE difference between having beautiful, glowing skin and a dull looking complexion with clogged pores that is more prone to breakouts and developing fine lines.
How to remove your eye makeup:
- Wash your hands with soap and water.
- Pour a few drops of Pure Fiji’s Exotic Bath & Body Oil onto two fingers. Rub those two fingers with the identical two fingers on your other hand.
- Softly rub each eye in circles with the corresponding fingers. The skin around your eyes is the thinnest, most delicate skin on your face so make sure you use light, downward motions to wipe away your shadow, liner and mascara. You’ll feel the makeup melt away under your fingers.
- Wipe off with a lukewarm cotton pad and continue with the rest of your routine starting with Pure Fiji’s Purifying Cleanser.
2. They stay hydrated from morning to night.
And not just when you’re hitting the gym or you’re super thirsty (if you get to that point, you’re most likely dehydrated already). Hydration; inside and out is one of the keys to keeping your skin radiant. If you’re still wondering how much water to drink; 8 x eight ounce glasses is still the ideal daily minimum to be fully hydrated to sustain radiant skin.

3. They use an antioxidant serum as part of their daily skin care routine.
Did you know that UV light can still damage your skin even if you’re wearing sunscreen? To combat this; try adding a layer of serum, with antioxidants to your skin care routine. Use Pure Fiji’s Hydrating Multi-Active Serum under your SPF. It contains; virgin coconut oil, Dilo oil, sikeci Oil, macadamia oil and passionflower extract. This way your skin is more likely to repair the damage as it occurs, preventing the onset of brown spots and premature fine lines.
4. They change their pillowcase every three days.
Okay you’re thinking; another step to my skin care routine? Whether we like it or not dirt, bacteria, and hair product residue collects on our pillowcases. Gross right? A fresh pillowcase is also one of the keys to preventing breakouts. Do your best to wash your pillowcases with a dye free, fragrance-free detergent and avoid fabric softeners especially if you have sensitive skin.
5. They know which skincare ingredients to avoid
Buying cheap face cleansers, shampoos, lotions and other products we put on our bodies can be just as harmful as anything we put in them. Harmful ingredients found in skincare products have been linked to everything from hormonal disruptions to cancer, and what’s worse is that they go directly into your bloodstream when applied to your skin or hair. While there are certainly lots of studies with different perspectives on this topic, women with gorgeous skin can agree that using more natural products like Pure Fiji’s are the safest bet for you and the environment. Here are the top 10 ingredients to avoid in makeup and skincare products.
- Sodium lauryl sulfate
- Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA)
- Triclosan and triclocarban
- Aminophenol, Diaminobenzene, Phenylenediamine (Coal Tar)
- Petroleum distillates
- Propylene glycol
6. They workout
Getting to a Barre or Zumba class can have a positive effect on your skin because a workout increases circulation which creates that dewy glow once it’s over. Another bonus: Working up a sweat helps lower the stress hormone cortisol which is linked not only to skin aging but breakouts and clogged pores.
