37 Things You Can Do to Improve Your Skin…Yes 37

Healthier skin doesn’t have to be a misnomer. Sometimes you just need someone to provide you with a few helpful tips on how to improve your skin!


Well here’s 37 of them to help you on your quest to improved skin’s health:

  1. Use skin care products for sensitive skin (even if you don’t have sensitive skin). They are usually formulated without harsh chemicals.
  2. Stop falling asleep in makeup (even mineral makeup).
  3. See an esthetician.
  4. Drink more water (preferably half your body weight in ounces daily).
  5. Stop eating processed foods (at least cut this out most of the time).
  6. Wear your hair away from your face.
  7. Never scrub your skin. Harsh abrasives can damage and cause blemishes.
  8. Don’t use cleansers that contain sulfates that will strip your skin of its natural oils.
  9. Exfoliate your skin once per week.
  10. Always wear sunscreen when going outdoors.
  11. Invest in a good daily vitamin for skin health.
  12. Change your pillow cases several times a week and preferably sleep on a satin case (great for your hair too).
  13. Steam out your pores at least twice monthly. This will help them reamin free of excess oil.
  14. Make sure water is the first ingredient in your moisturizer, followed by a natural oil.
  15. Try food on your face every now and then.
  16. Follow a skin care regimen for your skin type.
  17. Be consistent with your skin care regimen.
  18. Don’t touch your face unless you are cleansing or applying facial products.
  19. Get at least 8 hours of sleep nightly.
  20. Increase the circulation and oxygen levels in your skin with exercise (can’t believe I’m saying this one).
  21. Don’t leave toner out of your skin care regimen. It closes pores that have been opened from cleansing.
  22. See a dermatologist.
  23. Educate yourself and get to know your skin’s conditions and concerns.
  24. Load your diet up with foods rich in essential fatty acids.
  25. Keep your moisture levels balanced to prevent wrinkles.
  26. Keep your hair out of your face.
  27. Use pore cleansing strips to remove blackheads and whiteheads.
  28. Replace expired skin care products.
  29. Use facial products that contain collagen and elastin.
  30. Avoid or minimize stress.
  31. Take antioxidants internally and externally.
  32. Try herbal skin care.
  33. Stop picking at scabs or scars.
  34. Try a little concealer one shade lighter than your skin tone.
  35. Go alcohol free.
  36. Use face products from an established skin care line with honest ingredients
  37. Be patient with your skin and don’t rush the process.

  1. Hello. I know this is a two year old post but I came across it while reading your recent post on 25 Tips for Healthy Hair Growth. I tried the link for the Blended Naturals line and came across an error. I even searched for them on Google. Are they out of business? Thank you.

    1. Hi April, Blended Naturals was my line. I discontinued it because unfortunately there’s so much competition in the skin care market I was not able to make much of a profit. Instead, I now promote product lines that I have found to be effective 🙂

  2. I practice most of these already. I’m proud of myself. I’m all about healthy skin. Especially with my daughter. I try to limit the scars she will have through out the years. She’s so playful like a boy. I’m worried.

    1. Hi Kay- Don’t worry. Leave her in God’s hands. Pray for her every day. She’s enjoying herself right now. And isn’t that what we really want for our kids anyway? To enjoy themselves?
