  • Neutrogena® Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser

    Some women are willing to spend a lot to ensure a fabulous looking complexion. Expensive products and exotic spa treatments aren't necessary for healthy, radiant skin, however. In fact, there are many things you can do to improve your complexion that will cost you little to nothing at all. Being attentive to your skin's needs and following a sound regimen can go a long way to achieving that radiant glow. Here are 10 tips to get you started.

    Routine - Remember that your skin is an organ, and to get it healthy and back into shape takes time. One of the best things you can do for your face is to start and follow a three-step skincare routine: cleanse, tone, moisturize.

    Cleanse - Soap can be harsh on our skin, especially our face. When you cleanse, be sure to do so with a natural, gentle cleanser made especially for your face. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser contains willowbark, which is rich in bionutrients such as Vitamins B, C and E. It is also a natural

  • Combatting dry, flaky skin does not have to be a product intensive process. Instead, you can implement a series of do-it-yourself tips and tricks to keep your skin moist and supple no matter the time of year. In fact, many of the best methods of preventing flaky skin require focusing on the internal workings of the body versus the application of topical treatments.

    Vitamin E

    Vitamin E deficiency is a major cause of dry, flaky skin. While you can purchase Vitamin E supplements to augment your diet, adding foods rich in the nutrient to your daily diet will lessen the impact on your budget and provide other needed benefits. Wheat germ oil, sunflower seeds, olive oil, spinach, and peanut butter each contain at least 10 percent of your daily value of Vitamin E while meeting other dietary needs, such as the daily requirement for vegetables and the consumption of heart-healthy fats.

  • Is bar soap or body wash the right choice for your shower?

    While you might automatically reach for the liquid body or face wash in the beauty aisle, how can you be sure you're making the right choice? There are plenty of reasons to use both bar soaps and liquid washes. The choice really depends on your skin type and what you want your product to do for you.

     Both body washes and bar soaps can moisturize or overdry the skin, depending on how you use them. Always avoid very hot water when you shower or bathe so as not to deplete your skin's natural moisture levels, no matter what product you choose. While both can remove dirt, bacteria, and oil, there are many other benefits of body wash and bar soap to consider.

    The Need for Clean
    Any soap or wash is designed to get you clean, some more thoroughly or harshly than others. Still, you can also seek out moisturizing products in either category to help keep your dry skin smooth and happy. Creamy bar soaps are just as effective as a heavy foaming body wash. In fact, the amount of foam

  • Keep your skin fresh and healthy with enough moisture all year long.

    When your skin is dehydrated, it may appear dull, lifeless, dry, flaky, and even saggy. Water is just as important for skin's health as it is for the rest of the body's. With proper care and hydration, you might solve some of your skin's biggest problems. Follow these eight useful tips to keep your skin hydrated all year long.

    #1 - Don't Over Dry
    Cleansing or scrubbing your skin too much can actually do damage to it. Over-cleansing can strip your skin's natural oils and throw off its natural balance of moisture. Instead of using harsh cleansers, stick to a nature-based and gentle face soap for best results. Neutrogena Naturals Face & Body Bar is one great product that you can use to cleanse all over without the risk of over drying. With hydrating bionutrients at its core, this bar offers a unique deep clean without sacrificing your skin's own moisture.

    #2 - Moisture All Over

  • Take proper care of your skin to avoid premature aging and damage.

    Maybe you can't look like you're in your 20s forever, but there are plenty of things you can do to prevent premature signs of aging and preserve skin's youthful appearance for longer. Many of the things that cause skin to look older are damaging factors. When you take these out of the equation, with proper skincare and avoidance of harmful irritants, your skin is guaranteed to stay looking younger for longer. If you'd like to start "turning back the clock," so to speak, try some of these tips to get started.

    Exfoliate Regularly
    One of the quickest ways to brighten dull skin and renew your look is with regular exfoliation. Using a good scrub once a week (or twice a week if you have very oily skin) will remove the dead, lifeless skin cells on the top layer of your skin and reveal the newer, fresher cells beneath. When dead skin is trapped on the surface, you're more prone to breakouts, flakiness, and dullness. Buildup of dead cells can also make fine lines and wrinkles appear

  • Your skin doesn't have to suffer after a late night out.

    With three young children, I don't always manage to get the sleep my body needs. I might be up with the baby, dealing with my older daughter's night terrors, or simply catching up on last season's "Downton Abbey." It could be a dinner with my husband or a night out with the girls. It doesn't really matter what has kept me up past my bedtime. All that matters is the next day, I don't want everyone else to look at my face and know I was up way too late.

    Remove your makeup.

    You're up late. You're ready for bed. You don't want to waste your time on your night time skin care regimen or even take the time to take your makeup off. Big mistake. Your skin can't recover with caked on makeup. Take the time to remove your makeup after a late night.

    Drink up.

    Hydration is always important after a late night. It can help rehydrate your skin and prepare you for the day ahead. It may also help eliminate puffiness around the eyes. So grab a full water bottle and make sure to drink at least half

  • Use the Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Moisturizer as part of your anti-aging skin care regimen.

    If you're determined to maintain your youthful look for years to come, make sure you're using the right beauty products and being consistent with your skincare regimen. You can prevent premature wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots from developing by keeping your skin in good shape season after season. Your lifestyle and diet also play a role in how your skin looks and feels, so you'll also need to pay attention to what you eat - and get enough sleep! Compromising in any of these areas can amplify the effects of aging and even lead to troubled skin.

    Here are eight anti-aging skincare habits you need to adopt right away:

    #1: Use the right cleanser. Not all cleansers are alike and this is one beauty investment that demands a little research. A good anti-aging cleanser will have ingredients like vitamin C and oxygen boosters which increase cell turnover. If you're not sure what type of cleanser to use, ask your dermatologist for a recommendation.

    #2: Use a good moisturizer

  • Try this multi-vitamin night cream for healthy skin.

    Caring for your skin at night is just as important, if not more so, as starting your day off with a morning skincare routine. At the end of the day, your skin needs a bit of a refresher. Aside from washing away the dirt and stress of the day, your skin also gets a chance to renew and rebuild while you're sleeping. Prepping your skin before bedtime can help you achieve the healthy skin you've always wanted. Make time for nighttime skincare with these five simple steps.

    Step 1 - Cleanse Your Skin
    Washing your face nightly is vital, since you'll want to remove dirt, makeup, oil, and dead skin cells before you sleep. A gentle cleanser is the best option and won't over-strip your skin of its healthy oils and moisture. Begin your nighttime routine with a good rinse over the sink so the rest of your steps will be effective.

    Step 2 - Tone Your Skin
    Use a gentle toner and a cotton ball to wipe away any soap residue or leftover grime. Toners can also help to balance the pH levels of your
