Well here’s 37 of them grouped by topic to help you on your quest to improve skin health:

Skin Care Products to Improve Skin 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. Always wear sunscreen when going outdoors.
  3. Make sure water is the first ingredient in your moisturizer, followed by a natural oil.
  4. Use pore cleansing strips to remove blackheads and whiteheads.
  5. Go alcohol free in your skin care products.
  6. Use face products from an established skin care line with honest ingredients
  7. Replace expired skin care products.
  8. Use facial products that contain collagen and elastin.
  9. Try herbal skin care products.
  10. Try DIY skin care products made from food every now and then.
  11. Don’t use cleansers that contain sulfates that will strip your skin of its natural oils.
  12. Don’t leave toner out of your skin care regimen. It helps close pores that have been opened from cleansing. It also helps remove residual product that was not rinsed away after cleansing.
  13. Try a little concealer one shade lighter than your skin tone.
  14. Replace expired skin care products.
  15. Use face products from an established skin care line with honest ingredients.

Personal hygiene habits

16. Stop falling asleep in makeup (even mineral makeup)

17. Wear your hair away from your face.

18. Change your pillow cases several times a week and preferably sleep on a satin case (great for your hair too).

19. Steam out your pores at least twice monthly. This will help them remain free of excess oil.

20. Don’t touch your face unless you are cleansing or applying facial products.

21. Stop picking at scabs or scars.

22. Never scrub your skin. Harsh abrasives can damage and cause blemishes.

23. Exfoliate your skin once per week.

Dietary Intake to Improve Skin Health

24. Drink more water (preferably half your body weight in ounces daily).

25. Stop eating processed foods (at least cut this out most of the time).

26. Invest in a good daily vitamin for skin health.

27. Load your diet up with foods rich in essential fatty acids like coconut oil which is also good for your hair and skin.

General Health

28. Get at least 8 hours of sleep nightly.

29. Increase the circulation and oxygen levels in your skin with exercise.

30. Keep your moisture levels balanced (internally and externally) to prevent wrinkles.

31. Avoid or minimize stress (people and activities).


32. Follow a skin care regimen for your skin type.

33. Be consistent with your skin care regimen.

34. Be patient with your skin and don’t rush the process.

    I’m sorry for that. Thank you so much for your honest response!

      It’s ok I’m happy doing what I’m doing now 🙂 All in God’s plan 🙂

    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. Michelle

      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 🙂

    I love this post. I try to keep my skin as beautiful as possible, but Lawd knows it’s a challenge for me.

      Hi Andrea, I think we all have challenges. Key is to keep pressing. Thanks for commenting 🙂

  4. Kay

    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. Michelle

      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?
