10 Daily Skin Care Essentials

Sleep

Don't feel guilty the next time you swat the snooze button and roll over in bed. Getting a good night's rest is a daily ritual that your skin will punish you for skimping on. That's because sleep is your skin's time to rejuvenate and relax. Whether you love to smile or wear a constant frown, that's a lot of action for your skin to handle. Throw in the occasional cut, scratch, scrape and bruise, and skin is about ready to call it quits.

Skin gets busy replenishing itself during a sound sleep. It's also great because, at least for a portion of the day, skin gets to avoid all the dirt, pollution and any other nastiness floating around in the air.
