When it comes to skincare, it is highly important to take care of it at least every now and then. Your face is the first thing people see! For a lot of us, makeup is where we seek help to hide some sudden acne, blemishes or flaws in general that affect our self-confidence levels.
However, many are not aware of the natural changes that can be done to keep the skin glowing and healthy. You’d be shocked by how very basic beauty habits can create flawless skin. If you suffer from certain health issues, here is a list from RevealYourRadiance.com of all of the health issues Botox can help with.
Let’s start maintaining healthy, glowing skin with these following habits.
When your body needs water, you know right away from certain signs and reactions. The problem with skin and water is that when your skin needs water, you have no way of really knowing. This is why it’s important that you find a way to regulate your water intake throughout the day. You need to drink at least two liters of water per day to avoid dull and dry skin. This keeps your skin hydrated and free from any bacterial issues.
A major life-saving tip is always carrying your own water bottle in your bag. Fill it up at home before you start your day and refill it at work every few hours, depending on the bottle’s size. You’ll be able to drink plenty of water AND save the environment by not using up plastic bottles daily and utilizing your own water bottle 😉
2. Make Use of Those Gym Clothes
Believe it or not, regularly exercising is needed for your overall health, not just to tone your body. Exercising tightens your skin and boosts circulation, which creates healthy looking skin.
The good news is that there isn’t a strict exercise that you have to abide by. Basically, any movement that will rаіѕе your heart rate аbоvе the bаѕеlіnе daily for at least 30 minutes would create a better skin definition. A simple cardio workout like jogging or cycling lowers the stress level and gives your skin a glow. This also nourishes your skin with the needed nutrients and oxygen. So you get a win-win situation; a happier life, a toned body, AND better skin.
Quick tip: don’t forget to wash your face post-workout, don’t waste a skin glowing opportunity with a small mistake! Sweat and dirt aren’t the best combinations for clear skin.
3. Protect Your Skin From the Sun
Your skin has to go through a lot during the day. It has to fight off the wind, pollution, dirt, rain and the sun’s UV ray. Whether it’s summer or winter, get used to applying sunscreen all the time. You get exposed to sun rays even when you don’t know it. Sunscreen can help decrease the chance of skin and health problems, however, it needs to be used properly. You need to apply sunscreen every few hours, not just in the morning, especially if you’ll be out all day.
When choosing a sunscreen type, choose a broad spectrum sunscreen type with an SPF that covers the two types of rays (UVB and UVA). UVB rays burn the superficial layers in the skin and UVA are aging rays. So sunscreen actually helps fight skin problems like acne and blemishes.
Quick tip: have a mini sunscreen bottle in your backpack for reapplication!
4. Fruits and Vegetables For The Win
Include fruits and vegetables in your diet. Especially the bright colored ones like blueberries, pomegranates or olive oil. Go green! Eat salad regularly to increase the amount of vitamin intake as well. Have a balanced diet that includes protein, fiber and healthy fast to have a regular blood sugar intake. Make sure your blood sugar intake is not extremely high as it can cause acne and wrinkles if it rises too quickly.
Quick tip: have A LOT of cucumbers! They can be used as a natural toner because of their cooling properties. Chop some cucumbers and blend them with some honey or olive oil. It hydrates dull skin, reduces blemishes and adds a crystal clear glowing skin!
5. Beauty Sleep is Actually a Thing!
Beauty sleep isn’t cliché at all! It’s one of the most powerful beauty treatments. Whilst sleeping, your body gets out the human growth hormones, and this actually plays a great role in repairing some damaged cells and increases collagen production. If you’re having a hard time sleeping, have a relaxing bedtime ritual.
When you’re sleep deprived, your body makes more of the stress hormones and less of the human growth hormones. Try not to be a night owl, get a good night’s sleep and be healthy with glowing skin!
Quick tip: Wash your face, moisturize your hands, leave your phone and read for 10-15 minutes. This way, you’ll give a signal to your brain that it’s time for a deep sleep.
