It’s essential that you look after your skin, and surprisingly some of the best things you can do for it doesn’t require you to spend a fortune or try any crazy fads. Instead, consistency, TLC and thoughtfulness are simple ways to help create a foundation of beautifully healthy skin.
From getting regular exercise, eating well, through to carefully choosing the products you use let’s have a look at some of the ways you can take care of your skin:
Cleanse Twice A Day
One of the best things you can do for your skin that is simple and doesn’t take long is to cleanse it. Once in the morning and once in the evening. Use a gentle non-toxic product. Cleansing helps to ensure that your skin and pores are dirt free and it helps to eliminate bacteria and grime. If you don’t cleanse you are at more risk of large pores, oily skin and acne.
This may seem easier said than done, as so many people struggle with a good sleep routine, however, sleep is important for our body and skin. It’s the time where our skin does most of its rejuvenation. If you want to help yourself get a good nights rest try to help yourself switch off before bedtime. Turn off technology and the television an hour before you settle down and instead read a book or talk about your day with your partner.
Be Careful When Shaving
Shaving can cause all sorts of problems for our skin, especially when it comes to summer and we do it more regularly. It causes bumps, dry skin and often rashes which can be unpleasant, to say the least. It’s advisable to use a decent razor and a depilatory cream to help prevent problems like these.
Be Mindful Of Your Environment
Subjecting your skin to heavy pollution, artificial fragrance or cigarette smoke can have a huge impact on your skin health because of skin irritation. Try and be wary of your environment and always aimed to be in ‘clean air’. Of course, it’s not always possible but being conscious of it helps.
Exercise is not only great for your physical ability, mindset and health it also plays a key role in keeping your skin healthy. Doing exercise helps to increase the blood flow to your skin, keeping it clear and free of toxins. It also helps to alleviate stress which everyone knows has an effect on the health of your skin.
Drink Plenty Of Water And Eat Properly
Our food and drink feed’s our skin from the inside, it helps to keep it soft and supple. If you don’t eat a balanced diet you may start to see things like oilier skin and acne appearing and lack of water can lead to dehydration. Dehydration is a common cause of dry, cracked skin and also dark circles under your eyes.
