  • Do you ever have those days when everything just looks wrong? Your hair falls flat, you found a new pimple on your nose and the bags under your eyes literally have sleeping bags of their own? Well, I know the feeling. You want to live your life with confidence while feeling attractive; it is not as complicated as it might sound.

  • Have you ever used a good foundation for your face and noticed it was sloughing off or cracking as the day progressed? It could be that you are using the wrong type of foundation for your skin. Ask your skin questions, like you would when trying to get to know a new best friend. Find out its likes and dislikes and what exactly makes it happy.

  • There are roughly four different types of skin: normal, oily, dry and combination skin. Here is how to determine your skin type:

  • Oily

    • You are prone to break outs

    • Your pores are large in appearance

    • Your face often looks shiny

  • Dry

    • Pores are small or nearly invisible

    • A rough complexion

    • Red or dry patches

    • Visible lines in the face

  • Combination

    • Normal in some places and oily in others

    • Your T-zone (nose, chin and forehead) may be slightly more oily than the rest of your face

    • Blackheads

  • Normal

    • Not many pimples

    • Not sensitive

    • Small pores

    • Skin has great elasticity

  • Knowing your skin type is vital to looking and feeling your best because you may be unknowingly damaging your skin or making it look worse. There are cleansers, makeup and moisturizers manufactured for every skin type and choosing the one that fits your skin needs will give your complexion clarity and a radiant glow.

  • 3. Hello, hydration

  • You've probably been told to drink more water at some point in your life, but don't take that advice so lightly. Your body needs an ample supply of water every day to keep everything functioning on the inside and to keep you looking your best on the outside. Drinking enough water every day brightens up your eyes, your complexion, your skin and can even help with hair and nail growth.

  • Remember to keep your skin hydrated with good moisturizers as well. Moisturize your face every single day and you will reduce your risk for wrinkles. Moisturize your body during the day as well, especially your naturally dry areas like your elbows, heels and knees. Your body will thank you for it later, and you will thank your moisturizer for making you glow.
