16 Easy Things You Can Do Right Now For Better Skin

    Great skin doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg.

    Let's be honest here: EVERYONE wants better skin, but with tons of products that all promise to do something different, picking the right ones can be overwhelming. Fortunately, in between trying new cleansers and toners, there are things we can start doing to improve our skin and they cost absolutely nothing!

    1. Chileee, drink your water!

    2. Drink green tea, which has anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe redness and some discoloration.

    3. Check your stress levels. Yep, I said what I said.

    4. If possible, cut out dairy and switch to substitutes like almond or cashew milk.

    5. Pay attention to the times you touch your face and use something like Tangle Therapy or, dare I say it, a fidget spinner, to keep your hands busy.

    6. Clean. Your. Makeup. Brushes.

    7. Clean off your cell phone with an alcohol wipe *at least* once a week to get off millions of germs.

    8. Always remove your makeup at night.

    9. Swear by SPF (yes, even my melanated sisters need that UV defense).

    10. If you're super prone to clogged pores, a cleanser specifically for detoxing your pores may be your answer (yep, even when you're not wearing makeup).

    11. Add a face oil to your skincare regimen for intense hydration.

    12. And an exfoliant that will smooth away dead skin and clear up acne breakouts.

    13. Get more sleep.

    14. Get active so you can sweat out those toxins.

    15. Wash your pillows every six months, and your pillow cases and bed linens every two weeks.

    16. And lastly, if you have a few dollars to spend, invest in a showerhead that filters out high levels of chlorine.
