***ALWAYS wear sunscreen on your face, neck and chest. Even if you’re just out running errands. Did you know that 90% of the aging process can be blamed on sun exposure? Make it part of your morning routine!!
*** You’ve heard and read this a million times, and here it is for the millionth and first time: DRINK WATER. Lots of it. I know that is a real challenge for some of us, so try this: buy one of those big insulated cups and keep it filled with ice water.

***Exfoliate regularly—and I don’t mean with a harsh scrub! If you aren’t already, start using a retinol at night. Derived from Vitamin A, retinol is literally a miracle product! It stimulates cell renewal, improves skin texture and it fades hyperpigmentation.
By speeding up the process at which we create and shed skin cells, you are left with healthier, younger looking skin. I love and use PCA Skin’s Intensive Treatment with pure Retinol. It was featured as “the best anti-aging serum” by Redbook magazine. They named it a MVP beauty product for 2016. Check it out!
*** Wash your face every.single.night!! Enough said.
*** Avoid sugar—the white stuff. Eating a diet high in sugar causes a reaction called glycation. Basically, fructose and glucose create high protein compounds that cause elastin and collagen to weaken and become stiff. No good. While enjoying an occasional treat is ok, keeping your diet healthy will show on your face.
*** And my best of tip of all: BE HAPPY! BE SILLY! Smiling and feeling happy starts a chain reaction that shows both inside and out.
