Skin Care
- Eat well
- Drink water
- Do not rely on supplements
- Cleanse, Protect, Exfoliate, and Moisturise
- Learn about your skin type and what that means
- Bear it in mind when purchasing new products
- Sensitive skin is a condition not a skin type
- Always protect your skin against the sun
- Apply an SPF every day
- Apply it to exposed areas, not just your face
- Along with a separate moisturiser
- Apply moisturiser in circular upward movements
- Buy good washcloths
- Don't forget to wash them
- Wash your hands before cleansing
- Cleanse properly
- Cleanse twice (if you wear SPF, which you should)
- Stop touching your face so much
- Leave spots alone, they will sort themselves out
- Don't forget your feet

Make-Up
- Less is more
- Look for make-up with added SPF (but never rely on it)
- Apply make-up in circular downward movements
- Wear make-up only for as long as necessary
- Give your skin a day off from make-up
- Never ever ever go to sleep without removing make-up
- Thoroughly wash your brushes weekly
- Spot clean your brushes daily
- Change your pillow case regularly
- Use a clean brush to apply concealer to blemishes
- Regularly clean your make-up products and storage

General
- Quality not quantity
- Price tags can lie
- Learn to read the ingredients list
- Natural doesn't automatically mean better
- Or that you won't react
- Opinions are different from facts
- Be wary of hype
