Have you ever looked at someone with flawless skin and thought “what’s their secret?”. When you face things like blemishes, dry skin, scars, and skin sensitivity, it’s easy to assume that some people just have nice skin, and you got the short end of the stick.
Your daily skincare routines do play a part in your complexion because beautiful, glowing skin isn’t always just something you’re born with. Here are some steps you can take to make sure that your skin has every chance to thrive!
Our skin experts recommend wearing sunscreen every day because sunscreen is proven to reduce skin damage, early aging, and even worse, skin cancer. No matter if the weather is grey and cloudy or bright and sunny, apply sunscreen on both your face and your body.
Did you know getting enough sleep can work wonders for your skin? During sleep, your skin’s blood flow increases, and the skin rebuilds its collagen and repairs damage from UV exposure, reducing wrinkles and age spots. Without regular, quality sleep, many people begin to notice their skin looks dry, grey, and wrinkled. The first thing to do is create a bedtime routine and stick to it, so try to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night.
If you need another reason for heading to the gym, keep in mind this little tidbit; working out doesn’t just give you a great body it improves your skin as well! Strap on those running shoes, or get out the kettlebell, because when you exercise your body it increases circulation and oxygenation to active cells, including those in your skin, giving you a bright, healthy look.
The food you eat can have an incredibly dramatic effect on how your skin looks. Our bodies produce collagen and keratin which help protect our cells. When the body is deficient in these nutrients, wrinkles can become more prominent over time. Existing evidence indicates that a diet supporting overall health can support healthy-looking skin. Nutrient-rich whole foods like fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats are good for your entire body, including your skin.
A glass of water right after you wake up can give your skin a healthy glow. That’s because thirsty skin is wrinkled skin, and drinking the right amount of water every day can do wonders for your complexion. It keeps you hydrated and helps maintain your skin’s elasticity.
Practically, it can be hard to get the amount of water you need, so consider buying a water bottle and keeping it with you all the time. If you don’t like the taste of water, then consider carrying some packets of water enhancers so that you can get the hydration you need with your favorite flavor.
