I know we've been talking a lot lately about skin care lately, but I've come to realize something. A big part of being HAPPY, is feeling HAPPY. And when you look good, you feel good! And if you are feeling good, you have yourself some pretty AWESOME HAPPINESS. Rock on!
In any case, we all know that life habits are taught young and so I wanted to talk today about skin care for our kids. I am of course no expert by any means, but there are a few different tips that I've learned while researching my kids skin care and in my opion are worth mentioning.
1.) Sun Protection - Okay, this one we all know, but sun protection is an every day thing. Not only when they're about to cannonball into the poolLet's not forget to put it on before school everyday. We've all heard that we can get burnt at the beach even when its overcast. Same goes for our little ones and even more so. They have delicate skin that needs protection.
2.) Water - Total no-brainer, but kids not only need to drink lots of water to keep hydrated, but their skin benefits too. They are running around and sweating out the toxins, so let's make sure they are replenishing their fluids.
3.) Washing - Making sure your kids skin is getting really clean. We're loading them with sunscreen, lotion, and they are running around all day and sweating. Just as we wash our faces each night, let's get the kids in a habit of doing the same. If they are used to it, then the hope is that when puberty hits, we've already set them on a path to lessen the dreaded acne years. Man, my acne was bad at that age. 🙁
Did you know that Clarisonic brushes are safe for all ages? I saw a big difference in my kid's skin when we started using the Clarisonic Smart Profile with Body Brush on my kids and you could not only see the grim come off them, but their skin afterwards was so soft and shiny.
And that my friends is it. All the things we all know for ourselves, and are probably already doing for our kids. I know I can always use a refresher and so I'd thought I'd share.
HAPPY SKIN my friends!
