You might think that achieving flawless skin, is impossible but we don’t think it is. The struggles with acne, dark circles, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles are real, but if you combine products with lifestyle changes, you can improve the appearance of your skin.
We have some easy tips you can use to make your skin look and feel better than ever.
You probably know that you need to cleanse, tone and moisturise, but if you want great skin, you need to add exfoliating into the mix. Doing this is essential for a smooth complexion because it removes the dead skin cells that can cause your skin to be dull, grey, rough and dry. This build up can also lead to excess oil and clogged pores which can cause acne and blemishes, something we know you could do without. Aim to exfoliate twice a week with a product that is suited for your skin if you want to see the best results.
Take care in the sun
We know you’ve heard it a million times, but you really do need to look out for your skin when you are in the sun. Applying an SPF is the best way to keep your skin safe and it is a lot easier to prevent damage, rather than fix it. As well as wearing a decent SPF, keep sunglasses handy, wear a hat and long sleeves in the midday sun and if you do burn, apply an after sun lotion.
A decent diet is always going to help your skin, and including berries along with other fresh fruit and veg, is a good idea. Berries are loaded with the antioxidants that can help keep wrinkles at bay. Why not top yogurt with a handful of raspberries and blueberries and add a spoonful of honey, and it could help you get the gorgeous, glowing skin you have been looking for.
Water is important for our skin because it flushes away the toxins that cause inflammation and blemishes. It also gets all those lovely nutrients and oxygen delivered to your skin cells which prevents the dehydration that can cause premature ageing. We know it seems like a lot, but aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, more if you’re active, and this can help you achieve dewy skin. If you want a little flavour, try adding some lemon, cucumber and mint and we recommend skin-soothing chamomile tea if you want something to warm you up.
We all know that exercising is great for your overall health and well-being, but did you know that is can be a life saver for your skin too? When you do a decent workout, your heart beat increases, so does your blood flow and this can really nourish your skin cells. Try to do some cardio three times a week, add in some stretching too, and you will start to feel the benefits in many ways, but remember to shower afterwards so your skin is clean and fresh.
Keep stress in check
Life is busy, we know that, but stress can make your skin more sensitive, trigger breakouts and can cause interrupted sleep which is never good for your skin. To encourage healthy skin, as well as positive mental health, you need to take steps to manage your stress. Make sure you get plenty of rest and sleep, keep a to-do list so you don’t feel overwhelmed, say no now and again, Also make time for hobbies and treat yourself to a regular massage or facial and you might be surprised at the results.
