Besides the obvious that drinking plenty of water is great for your skin! Travel can be incredibly hard on the skin. Dehydration in flight, changes in climate, jet lag, and changes in water from city to city. This can lead to sensitized skin and aggravate conditions like acne and rosacea. One change we can try to manage, is the water you cleanse your skin with. Consider washing your face with bottled water instead of the water that comes from the faucet. This Tip works great for those of you who spend your weekends away at your cabins, which are notorious for having skin un-friendly hard water.

2 INGREDIENTS to SHRINK/TIGHTEN PORES and SKIN!
DIY BUBBLE FOAM MASK!! Servin some Mrs. Doubtfire realness Ive seen this bubble mask that foams after you apply it onto the skin so I thought I would DIY it... the diy version starts as a foam (because its all natural) but you can feel the bubbles working on your skin.. so SHRINK LARGE PORES and GET HYDRATED, SOFT, SUPER TIGHT skin!! (you know that tight feeling facelift you get when you wear a super tight high ponytail.. thats what this feels like. natural botox lol)
DISCLAIMER: try not to eat it! its SO YUMMY!!! I love me some skincare that's good enough to eat! All my bakers out there know whats up! (yes I know this is a merengue. I love food)
ALL YOU NEED:
EGG WHITES (from one egg) **make sure there is NO YOLK otherwise this wont bubble)
SUGAR (1 tbsp)
-you can do this with JUST egg whites too but I like adding sugar cuz of the amazing benefits it has for your skin! more on that later
WHISK your egg whites and sugar in a ceramic/metal bowl. DO NOT use plastic (it wont foam) .. you can use an electric mixer or whisk it by hand Keep whisking until it changes from runny yellowish egg whites to a white thick bubbly foam Apply the foam to your entire face - you can use a brush to apply it or your CLEAN fingers
Youll feel the bubbles tingling your skin! it kinda tickles and feels really cool!
Wash off after 10-15 mins
BOOM. TIGHT SKIN. TIGHT PORES.
Glycolic Bubble Mask to buy: $54
DIY this Glycolic Bubble Mask: Less than $4
WHY THIS WORKS:
SUGAR: natural form of glycolic acid -makes your skin younger looking and fresh because of cell turnover
natural exfoliant (alpha hydroxy acids) -natural humectant = juices your skin up with moisture and traps it in
EGG WHITES: high in protein so they help heal the skin and kill acne
-helps wrinkles and make the skin appear firmer/tighter
-the protein is a natural astringent so it tones your face and soaks up any excess oil and its a “preservative” -contain an enzyme called Lysozyme that helps to tighten and shrink pores -helps with skin elasticity

No alternative facts here. TRUTH. I enjoy my Sunday morning facials because it's my time to relax. This bubbly facial combines plant stem cells and oxygenating ingredients to help brighten dull skin. Okay, TRUTH. While these masks can feel awesome, bubbles are fun, AND stem cells carry hope and excitement, the TRUTH is that stem cells do NOT work in topical anti-aging creams and masks yet. Plant-based stem cells are too large to penetrate the skin and have no value or activity in human skin currently. Human stem cells are currently being investigated for the use of pluripotent stem cells from skin biopsies in the application of rejuvenation, hair regeneration, and wound healing but more studies are needed. Bottom line: The benefit in the topical application of stem cells via creams and masks is not established yet. So while I enjoy my weekly home facials, I'm not expecting any cell rejuvenating properties, but it is relaxing which is good enough for me. If you are looking for ingredients to influence stem cells in your topicals, go for retinoids, glycolic acid, growth factors, and defensins. #skintips#knowledgeispower#sundaymornings

This color is a result of compounds called anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants that shield the skin against harmful free radicals that can damage the collagen that keeps your skin firm. On top of that, blueberries are also packed with vitamin C, another antioxidant crucial for collagen production.
