If you want healthy, smooth, glowing skin, regular exfoliation is a must. Exfoliation is removing the layers of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface that is clogging the skin and exposing fresh new cells below. Exfoliation also increases the skin’s ability to absorb other products such as serums and moisturizers that can further improve the skin’s health. It is important to limit exfoliation to once a week because over-exfoliating can leave your skin dry, irritated and damaged.

While stretching, focus on major muscle groups such as your calves, thighs, hips, lower back, neck and shoulders.

Concealer is the most effective tool for hiding dark under-eye circles and imperfections. It is important to find one that won’t crease, flow white at a flashing camera, or disappear quickly.

Using your ring finger, pat on a thin layer of concealer, paying extra attention to the innermost corners. Keep patting and gently swiping until you have a smooth even layer over your dark circles.
