Top Tip No. 3: Take a walk among the trees

Top Tip No. 4: Flood your skin with moisture
That goes for both what you ingest and what you topically apply on your skin. After a good exfoliation, cleansing and toning, always follow through with deep moisture. Layer your essences, serums, lotions and creams in the order of thickness and fullness of formulation.
Make sure too that you’re deriving only the ingredients that matter from your products. Some of the most beneficial skincare ingredients to look for are peptides, hyaluronic acid, co-enzyme Q10, plant oils, Vitamins A, C, E and B3. Never allow your skin to dry out throughout the day by avoiding extremely hot, humid and cold environments.
