1. Clean the face
The face is the first thing everyone sees, so make sure it is always clean before leaving the house. This is one of the most important things you take care of. Therefore, knowing how to care for it is important.
There are four types of facial skin (Dry, Oily, Combination/Normal, and Sensitive). Each one needs to be handled in a certain way. A mild soap (such as Ivory Soap) and water can be a basic cleaner for most.
I have combination skin and this is what I use to clean my face. If you have sensitive skin, there are items on the market that are specially made for that type of skin.

2. Fix that hair
Okay, this should go without saying. Every woman, man, and child should comb/brush their hair before leaving the house.
Find a hairstyle that looks good on you. So when you go out, you will look put together, even if you feel like a mess.
3. Brush your teeth, please
Brushing your teeth is essential. For one thing, it cleans your mouth and takes care of stinky ‘dragon’ breath. Brushing for two minutes can get rid of that yucky stuff in your mouth and on your teeth. Therefore, keeping cavities and gum disease away.
Shockingly, brushing your teeth can improve your overall health. I remember reading an article years ago where the condition of your teeth can impact your overall health. I don’t remember where I read it, but I did find an article from the Mayo Clinic on the same subject.
Research seems to show that if the bacteria in your mouth are not cleaned away, those bacteria can cause inflammation to the teeth and/or gums (gum disease). We all kind of know that, right?
But did you know that prolonged inflammation can get into the body’s bloodstream, spread to other parts of the body, and start disease there?
So, please, take the two minutes needed to brush your teeth. Also, floss and have regular dental checkups.
The takeaway from this is there are 3 essential things to do before leaving the house. There are 1) clean your face, 2) make sure your hair looks awesome, and 3) your teeth are brushed, and hopefully flossed.
With these 3 done before leaving the house, you will look great and ready to take on the day no matter how you feel.
