#1 Sunscreen everyday even in winter
You have heard it before but we will say it again, wear sunscreen everyday. Sunscreen will slow down the ageing process, prevent pigmentation and uneven skin tone. This small effective daily ritual will preserve your youthful skin potentially saving you thousands in skincare corrective treatments. Also vital to do at the start of every season is to look for spots, lumps or unusual changes. Early detection of skin issues could be a life saving endeavor.

#3 Clean your makeup brushes
We know it can be a bit tedious but cleaning your makeup brushes every few weeks is a must. “Bacteria can live on unwashed brushes for months and each time you apply your make-up you run the risk of them transferring to your skin and causing problems such as skin irritation or infection,” says make-up artist Allie Clark.
#4 Remove your makeup everyday without fail
We have all been guilty of sleeping with makeup on but making sure to clean you skin every night is the best weapon against skin conditions. When you sleep in your foundation is clogs your pores and can lead to dryness, acne and red, inflamed skin. Sleeping with mascara on increases the likelihood of lash fallout and can cause eye infections.
