Having healthy, young looking skin is a sign of good health and is something we all strive to achieve. Many women believe that the best way to get healthy skin is to try a slew of face care products, but that does not always produce the best results.
Below are six things you can do, and ways you can achieve healthy and young looking skin.
When thinking about anything that involves our bodies, the first thing we have to consider is what we put into it. The state of your skin depends on getting good nourishment that keeps it healthy by fighting wrinkles and damage to the cellular structures. Say goodbye to unhealthy sugars and snacks, and instead fill your plate up with foods like blueberries, avocados, brown rice, artichoke, spinach, carrots, garlic, cucumber, tomatoes and so much more.
Not getting enough of the drink of life is never a good idea. Your body is made up of 65% water and when you get dehydrated, it shows very clearly on your skin. Without sufficient hydration your skin becomes dry, itchy and is prone to breakouts. Your complexion also becomes quite pallid, and all blemishes become much more apparent. To prevent this, make sure your body stays hydrated by drinking the recommended daily dosage of two liters of water (which is about eight 8-ounce glasses) or more, depending on skin type and the climate you live in.
Love Your Face
Take special care of your face, by making sure you clean up all traces of makeup and dirt accumulated during the day when you are about to go to bed. Use rinse-free wipes to refresh your face, and then give some love to your lips and eyes. Hydrate your lips so they don’t get dry from not being moved all night, and also consider picking up some eye cream for dark circles which may build up right beneath your eyes.
Going to the gym or working out at home is great for your health, and it also does wonders for your skin. Getting your heart pumping increases circulation of blood and nutrients throughout the body, thus giving your skin more of the good nutrients it needs. Also, shedding fat and building muscle causes the skin to adapt and tighten up to ensure it fits properly as your body structure changes.
After a full day which involved intense exercise, your body needs a good dose of beauty sleep. And if you do not get enough of it, your skin will pay a heavy price by appearing dull and tired. When you sleep, your body gets the time it needs to repair any damage that it has suffered from, and the moisture in your skin is replenished and balanced out. Good sleep also helps reduce stress in the body, which (if unchecked) can lead to skin related problems like acne and inflammation.
Protect Your Skin From Sun Damage
If you live in sunny and hot climates, then there is a chance that your skin is being regularly exposed to heat and harsh UV rays. Seek shade and limit exposure to the harsh noon sun, and wear your daily SPF to keep your skin healthy in the face of heat.
Having healthy skin is a worthy goal to pursue. Make these tips a habit, and your skin will be healthy and glowing in no time.
