So here I am -- the second makeup-free Monday of the month and still going strong.
This morning, my routine went like so: I got up; took a shower; put on a cream blouse, long vest, leggings and black patent leather boots; and prepped my skin for the day. First, I used some facial toner -- Neutrogena's Alcohol-Free Toner ($7.27 at Walmart) to be exact. (Last week, we learned the importance of this step in shrinking pores.)
After my Monday beauty routine (where it ends at moisturizer), I noticed how much I love my skin today. Maybe it's the makeup break I'm getting once a week that my complexion is benefiting from? Or maybe it was the amount of water I drank yesterday? (I had gone out drinking the night before and had to detox all of Sunday, which included drinking plenty of water -- more than my usual.)
Check back every Monday this month as I will be makeup-free! I'll also offer up some valuable tips as we go.
Today's makeup-free beauty tip: Drink a lot of water! They say consuming eight glasses (8 oz. each) per day is ideal. Not only will doing so enhance your overall health and increase your energy level, hydrating provides a radiant complexion. You won't need foundation!
