We all know it's possible to have perfect-looking skin. Every day we encounter people who's skin is, dare we say it, flawless; whether it's the woman on the elliptical at the gym, or that stranger who always gets their morning coffee fix at the same shop as you. You too can have perfect-looking skin! But it's not going to happen on its own. Here are skin care habits of these enviable women!

Habit 1: Cleanse Deep

Make sure to deeply cleanse your face every single night before bed. This removes everything your skin has had to endure throughout the day. Whether it is dreadful free radicals, or pore clogging impurities, it's of paramount importance to rid your face of these harmful agents.

Habit 2: Eat Well

That saying "you are what you eat" couldn't be truer. Skin is the result of what's going on internally. Foods packed with Omega-3 and Vitamin C help your body produce more collagen, and in turn keep it more supple and elastic.

Habit 3: Quench Your Thirst

We've said it once, and we'll say it again: dehydration = accelerated aging. Drinking the correct amount of water each day is crucial in maintaining proper moisture balance within your skin, so sipping on just an extra couple glasses a day may be the difference between having dry, wrinkled skin, or smooth, hydrated skin.

Habit 4: Stay Sun Proof

Sunscreen is the only thing between your vulnerable skin and the harsh ultraviolet A & B rays released from the sun. Products with SPF 15 or higher will generally get the job done, but what is important is making sure you apply sunscreen to your face each day, even if the sun doesn't appear to be "out".

Habit 5: Avoid Cake Face

Believe it or not, too much makeup can actually make your skin look worse. While you may think you're trying to make yourself look better, you're actually clogging up your pores. When you're wearing makeup 16 hours of the day, you're not allowing your skin to breathe. Keep it light and opt for a tinted moisturizer or BB cream.

Habit 6: Get Your Zzz

Sleep is the answer to getting rid of those dark circles under your eyes, and smoothing those forehead wrinkles that come from making facial expressions all day. Experts say seven hours of sleep is the ideal, but that may be a challenge, so the idea is, no matter how much or how little you sleep, focus on making that time as peaceful as possible. Try drinking some chamomile tea and listening to soothing music as you gracefully fall asleep.

Habit 7: Don't Smoke

If you need another reason to motivate you to quit smoking, add premature wrinkles to the list. Not only is smoking bad for your health, it can actually age you faster than sun exposure and dehydration can. Many of the more than 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke damage collagen and elastin, which give your skin its strength and elasticity.
