I can't think of a better way to buff away dry, flaky skin than with a good, old-fashioned sugar scrub. My mother always used to use olive oil and sugar to soften her hands and now I do the same. While waiting for water to boil or food to finish cooking in the oven, I'll take a little olive oil and sugar, and rub my hands together over the sink. After a minute or so, I rinse my hands and voila! I instantly have smoother hands!

11 Nourishing And Necessary Skin Care Products For Your Routine

By Katie Gray

            Skin care is so important! There are many products available these days for your skin care routine. An important beauty tip: the neck is just as important as your face! Through every stage of life, it is imperative to take good care of your skin. Skin care requires cleansing, moisturizing and exfoliating. This is essential to removing dead skin cells, dirt and oil. By doing this, it also prevents acne and skin irritation. Our skin protects us from everything in life, and is our biggest barrier against infection. (This is why we have to keep our skin hydrated with lotion, otherwise it gets dry and cracks – which can lead to infection and weaken our immune system.) Our skin also shields us from ultraviolet light from the sun. When our skin is healthy, it produces Vitamin D when exposed to the sun – which is crucial for many of our body functions.

Aging is inevitable in life, however; there are healthy ways to maintain your youthful appearance. You’re never too young or old to start preventing wrinkles, and you’re never too young or old to start taking care of your skin. Pay attention to keeping your skin healthy, drink a lot of water and take vitamins. A big part of aging naturally and looking good, is keeping your skin fresh. There are so many ways to minimize wrinkles and lines, maintain fresh and radiant skin, without having to undergo drastic plastic surgery or spend a fortune at the spa. Dermatologist bills can also get expensive, therefore; it’s smart to invest in dermatologist tested products that can be pricey – because in the long run it’s a better deal than paying for a lot of doctor appointments.

Healthy, radiant, fresh, glowing skin is a luxury that is deserved by all! No matter your skin type, ethnicity, age, gender or economic status – you are entitled to having healthy, happy skin. Seriously, love the skin you’re in!

Here are 11 nourishing and necessary skin care products for your routine:
