Apply Skin Toner: Many people skip toner in their skin care routine. I see why, it can be optional for some skin types but it does help balance out your skin and prepare it for moisturizing. If you decide to use toner, look for ones that are alcohol-free and suited for your particular skin type. Just dab some on a cotton pad, wipe your face and neck and let it air dry. Witch hazel makes a great toner and it’s very reasonably priced if you’re looking to try one out.

Exfoliate and Hydrate: Exfoliating the skin with body a scrub and hydrating it with a good summer lotion are important things that can help your skin to get a glow and look younger. Dead cells can be knocked off to get radiant skin by following few basic steps religiously. Find a summery lotion, which is light and fast absorbing. Gels and purees are perfect fast absorbers. Make sure you apply it right after you dry off from your shower.

Exfoliate Your Entire Body: No matter how much lotion you use, you’re never going to have glowing skin if you don’t exfoliate. Grab a body scrub and hit the shower. Gently rub your exfoliator in circular movements on your entire body from the shoulders down and rinse clean. However, it’s easy to over-exfoliate—scrubbing away skin cells that are trying to heal and grow right along with the dead, dry skin we’re trying to slough away. It’s best to exfoliate no more than once a week, because this gives the baby-new skin cells a chance to grow, and your skin time to replenish and rehydrate. Over-exfoliation can cause wrinkles, dry skin, and even scarring.

Minimize Sun Exposure

The sun is the number one cause of aging in the skin. Sun exposure breaks down collagen, prompting pores to sag. Consider using a serum with Vitamin C and retinol boosters at night to help your skin heal. One of the biggest skin care mistakes that people make is not applying sunscreen. Why? Simply put, sun exposure can kill you (skin cancer) and leave you with wrinkles and sunspots. Skin cancer is the number one cancer killer of young women.
