Date-Ready Skin in Five Steps

First dates are tough enough without having to worry about a pesky breakout! Learn how to get your skin glowing and ready for that big date with these five tips.

Hydrate -- and Eat Great!

They say real beauty comes from within -- and that is certainly true when it comes to happy, healthy skin. What you put into your body is revealed in your physical appearance. It's incredibly important to drink eight glasses of water a day to hydrate, flush toxins and ensure glowing skin. Load up on fresh fruits, veggies, lean proteins and stay away from fast food and anything fried. Your body will thank you!

Breakup with Breakouts

It can take several days for a blemish to heal, so tackle any pesky breakout with a good, complexion clearing cleanser or astringent. Look for products containing 2.0% salicylic acid -- a key acne fighting ingredient! Calm any irritated skin with soothing products containing lavender and eucalyptus.

Skin Therapy

Exfoliate your skin to eliminate any surface toxins and dead skin cells. If you aren't in the regular habit of doing so — you will be amazed at the rejuvenating effects this can have. Try a new night cream or serum, packed with vitamins A and C, and wake up to recharged and healthier looking skin.

Exercise

Working out is great for the heart, mind, and your skin. Exercise improves your circulation, and that increased blood flow delivers nutrients and oxygen to every cell in your body -- and adds a gorgeous glow to those cheeks!

Decompress

The most important thing you can do for achieving an overall well being is reducing the stress in your life. Make sure you take some time out to relax, enjoy the quiet, pamper yourself, read a book, and take care of you. Enjoy that date— but don't stress over it. If it's meant to be, it will be!
