Everyone wants to have perfect, glowing skin, but many people think that it requires a lot of expensive treatments or products. However, there are a few simple things that you can do to get healthy, glowing skin without spending a fortune.
Exfoliating your skin is one of the best ways to achieve healthy, glowing skin. It helps to remove any dead skin cells and impurities from the surface of your skin, and it also helps to unclog your pores. You can exfoliate your skin with a physical exfoliant such as sugar or salt, or you can use a chemical exfoliant such as glycolic acid or lactic acid.
2. Drink Plenty Of Water
Not only does it help to keep your skin moisturized, but it also helps to prevent dryness, so if you are suffering from dry skin, drink a lot of water. It is so important to drink enough water because it helps your body get rid of toxins from the body, which can lead to skin problems and other health problems. When you are thirsty, reach for a glass of water!
3. Eat Healthy Food
Eat a lot of fresh fruit, vegetables and lean meats to get your body all the necessary vitamins and minerals it needs. The fiber in fruits and vegetables can help to cleanse your skin, as well as remove toxins from the body. Eat plenty of omega-3 fatty acids like salmon and flax seeds to help protect your skin from the damage that certain environmental toxins can cause.
4. Do Not Smoke
Smoking is NOT good for your skin. The toxins in cigarettes can cause skin problems, such as wrinkles, discoloration of the skin and also increases chances of having skin cancer.
5. Wear Sunscreen
Every day when you leave your house, the sun is shining. You can’t avoid it. Even if it’s cloudy outside, the sun’s ultraviolet radiation (UV) is still present. UV radiation is a type of electromagnetic radiation that can cause skin cancer and other skin problems, such as premature aging and wrinkles. That’s why it’s so important to wear sunscreen every time you go outside, even on cloudy days. Because UV radiation can be present in both the visible and infrared portions of the light spectrum, it’s important to wear sunscreen that contains a combination of ingredients that protect against both types of radiation. Ultraviolet A (UVA) is more harmful than ultraviolet B (UVB). UVA rays can penetrate glass and can cause skin damage even through clothing.
6. Reduce Stress
There is no question that stress can take a toll on both your physical and mental health. While it’s impossible to avoid all stress in your life, there are certain steps you can take to help reduce its negative impact. One of the best ways to combat stress is through exercise, which releases endorphins that help improve your mood. Other healthy habits that can help reduce stress include getting enough sleep, eating a balanced diet, and practicing relaxation techniques such as meditation or deep breathing. Make time to relax and do things that you enjoy. If you find that stress is having a significant impact on your skin, be sure to consult with a dermatologist who can recommend appropriate treatments.
7. Use A Good Moisturizer
Moisturizers are an important part of any skin care routine. They keep the skin supple and hydrated, which prevents fine lines and wrinkles from forming. There are many different types of moisturizers available, so it’s important to find one that is appropriate for your skin type. If you have dry skin, you may need a moisturizer that contains hydrating ingredients like glycerin or shea butter. If you have oily skin, you may want a moisturizer that is light and non-greasy. No matter what your skin type is, it’s important to find a moisturizer that you will use every day.
8. Avoid Picking Your Face
It’s a habit nearly everyone is guilty of, but picking your face can cause tiny injuries that can lead to scars. Dermatologists say that the best way to avoid picking your face is to keep your hands busy with something else. If you find yourself reaching for your face, try holding a pencil or straw in between your teeth instead.
More About Exfoliate
As the seasons change, so does our skincare routine. In the colder months, it’s important to add an exfoliator to your skincare regimen. Exfoliation removes the dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of your skin, making it look dull. It also helps improve circulation and allows your other skincare products to penetrate deeper into your skin.
There are many different types of exfoliators available, from physical exfoliators like scrub beads to chemical exfoliators like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). AHAs are a popular choice because they are gentle yet effective. If you’re new to exfoliation, start with a mild AHA and work your way up to a stronger one if needed. When choosing an exfoliator, be sure to read the ingredients list carefully.
How to Use
Before exfoliating, make sure your skin is clean and dry. Exfoliating can be done daily, but it’s best used once or twice a week to avoid irritation. If you have sensitive skin, it’s best to start with a gentle AHA. I like to use AHAs because they’re gentle on my skin, but if you prefer, you can use an oil-based cleanser as your exfoliant. To use, apply a small amount of the AHA to your fingertips and massage into your skin. You may experience a tingling sensation, which is normal. Continue massaging until your skin feels soft, clean and smooth. Rinse well with warm water.
