Incorporate these simple tips into your day, watch your skin improve, and it will thank you for your attention.
1. Break a Sweat
Not only is exercise a great tool for sculpting your body, but it also gives your face a healthy and vibrant glow due to the increase in blood flow. Plus, as you sweat, your body flushes out toxins, disposing dead skin cells, and allowing new cells to grow.
2. Eat Healthy
A healthy diet will help you look your best. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. While limiting your consumption of unhealthy fats and foods that are high in sugar.
3. Supplement Properly
Alongside a healthy diet, take a daily multivitamin with Vitamin C or Vitamin E in order to help fight lines and those unwanted wrinkles. And for smoother skin, supplement with fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6.
In order to advance your skincare regimen to another level for an increase in smoothness, improved skin tone, and fewer lines, exfoliate with a gentle, yet, well formulated, alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) product. This form of exfoliant is a hero for dry and sun-damaged skin. Our Organic Fruit Acid Exfoliant has been specifically formulated to be gentle on your skin, yet, giving you optimal results.
5. Be careful of the Sun's rays
Use sunscreen with an SPF 30 for your face anytime you are headed out the door. This includes cloudy days as well, because you're still being exposed to damaging UV rays that poke through those fluffy clouds. Luckily, however, many moisturizers and make-up products contain sunscreen that help protect you. And as another precaution, wear hats to block out the sun.
6. Layoff the Booze
Alcohol drains your body of Vitamin A, which is a vital antioxidant that your body uses in order to repair skin tissue. When there is a Vitamin A deficiency, you may experience dry and/or flaky skin.
7. Don't Smoke
Smoking leads to wrinkles. Smoking also thins out the small blood vessels at the top layer of the skin, and, as a result, blood flow decreases. What's more? Smoking damages collagen and elastin too! This reduces the skin's strength and elasticity, leading to older looking skin. And who wants that?
8. Beat Stress
Stress wrecks havoc on your body -- including your skin. When you stress, the hormone cortisol is released, which makes your skin oilier, and, as a result, your skin has a difficult time fighting off acne-causing bacteria, which then leads to breakouts. So take a deep breath, step back and relax. Practice yoga, reduce your workload, exercise, and take breaks every so often.
9. A Good Night's Rest
When you're fast asleep, your skin goes into repair mode. Thus, when you're sleep deprived, your body becomes stressed, and the hormone cortisol and adrenaline are released, which as noted under #8, can lead to acne breakouts. So aim to get seven to eight hours of sleep per night.
