For many of us it is a constant quest for glowing, clear skin. With our hectic schedules it can be challenging for some of us to maintain a consistent skin care routine. But don't fret, there is always hope and just about anyone can have great skin with just a little patience. In this blog we reveal simple healthy living tweaks to DIY natural beauty remedies. Take a look at the best skin care tips and tricks of all time.
1. Mist moisturizing water
If you're going to mist don't just mist water since water evaporates on the skin, creating dryness. Here's a great DIY Rose Beauty Mist to boost hydration and calm the skin.
2. Minimize acne scars with Dilo oil
Dilo extract is a soothing oil rich with antioxidants. This dry oil from the Fiji Islands will not leave skin greasy. Great for repairing and minimizing acne scars.
3. Exfoliate longer
When exfoliating you don't want to scrub harder, instead do it longer for a deeper cleanse. Wet your face and apply Pure Fiji's Exfoliating Scrub to your face using your fingertips with circular motions. Rinse with warm water and finish off with Pure Fiji's natural skin care products hydrating serum and moisturizer.
4. Less is more when it comes to ingredients
When it comes to skin care products less is more when it comes to ingredients. This is especially important if you have very sensitive skin.
5. Decrease alcohol
Drinking alcohol on a regular basis can cause more oil production and bigger pores.
6. Add SPF
If you have a favorite day moisturizer and it doesn't contain sunscreen, mix it with a lightweight SPF.
7. DIY natural acne remedy
The next time you get a big pimple apply a hot compress on it and apply 1 percent hydrocortisone cream to deflate the bump.
8. Skip intense heat
If you want to avoid extreme redness in your face and broken capillaries absolutely avoid saunas, steam rooms, and spicy foods.
9. Layer your products correctly
After cleansing your face in the morning the easiest way to remember the order in which to layer your products is start with the lightest to the heaviest. Use your serum first, then a moisturizer, and cap it off with sunscreen.
10. Hydrate with a humidifier
If you're after that moisturized, dewy skin, keep hydrated all year-round with a humidifier.
Grab a toner versus makeup wipes
If you have absolutely no time for a pre or post workout shower, use Pure Fiji's Balancing Toner instead of makeup wipes that are typically loaded with alcohol which dries the skin.
12. Find your Zen
Stress absolutely affects our skin and causes embarrassing acne. Make time to wind down by finding your Zen. Whether it's a hobby, meditation, taking a walk after a dinner or a warm bubble bath less stress increases oxygen flow, minimizing flare-ups.

If you're sensitive to certain aromatic essential oils choose fragrance free versus formulas that claim to be unscented.

When washing your face avoid abrasive hand mittens or puffs. Your skin care routine should include a fresh wash cloth, preferably a low-loop terry one designed for newborns and a cleanser that contains pineapple and/or papaya extracts which will give you a deeper cleanse.

Celebrities like Jessica Alba are opting for more natural skin care treatments like grating cucumbers versus sliced cucumbers. Here's how to create your own calming eye treatment: wrap grated cucumbers in a soft cheese cloth. Sit comfortably, tilt your head back and place the roll across your eyes.
22. Sour cream for sensitive skin
