Get Healthy Glowing Skin With These 10 Tips:
Our skin is our largest organ. Not only does it absorb anything we put on it, but it is also a reflection of our body’s inner health. In order to get healthy, glowing skin, we need to focus on how we nurture our bodies from the inside out.
Incorporate these tips into your lifestyle and say goodbye to dull, dry, flaky skin:
1. Nourish your skin with whole foods:
You are what you eat, and the skin will reflect any imbalance going on in your body. Take care of your skin by including a rainbow of colors in the fruits and veggies you eat. Having a balanced, plant-rich diet, in addition to avoiding sugars and processed foods, will allow you to get all the essential vitamins, antioxidants, and nutrients to keep your skin well nourished.
2. Stay hydrated:
Drinking enough water- at least 8 glasses a day- will help your organs stay healthy and functioning properly. Keeping yourself hydrated flushes out toxins, improves skin tone, reduces puffiness, and prevents premature aging by increasing the elasticity of your skin.
3. Get your beauty rest:
Get at least 7-9 hours of sleep. Getting enough sleep not only will help your body and brain repair and re energize; but your skin cells will regenerate more quickly during the night while you sleep. According to studies, there is more blood flow to the skin during sleep delivering the nutrients we need to keep our skin healthy and youthful.
4. Boost your skincare at night:
Because of the increased blood flow while you sleep, it is also the best time to load your skin with powerful vitamins and nutrients.
5. Use silk pillowcases:
Thanks to their smooth texture-meaning less friction on your skin while you sleep-silk can help prevent wrinkles and acne breakouts. Plus, it helps the skin retain moisture to keep it hydrated and glowing!
6. Cleanse twice daily:
Follow your skincare ritual mornings and evenings. Cleansing helps your skin get rid of dirt, makeup residue, dead skin cells, and excess oil.
Moisturize immediately after cleansing your skin to maximize hydration.
7. Use the right products:
Clean beauty means clean ingredients. Clean beauty means no harsh chemicals, sulfates, parabens, petroleum, fragrances, or aluminum compounds. Use 100% natural, non toxic, plant based products to benefit from all the vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients they provide . Moisturize your skin regularly beginning with the lightest product, and ending with the thickest. Massage products onto your skin, exfoliate weekly, and use facial sunscreen every day.
8. Get a facial:
Rejuvenate and nourish your skin with a professional that will deeply cleanse, exfoliate, massage, and treat your skin depending on your needs.
9. Move your body:
Exercise is the best way to get rid of toxins carried in your body and skin through sweat. It will improve your blood circulation, and aid in longevity and youthfulness.
10. Find CALMA:
Calma means to be calm. Practicing meditation, breath-work, and awareness in everything you do, will help reduce stress and anxiety; both detrimental to overall health and skin wellness.
