10 Easy Tips for Glowing Skin
As we get older we need to incorporate healthy skin care habits into our daily skin care routine. Our skin is the largest organ and the one that protects the rest of our organs from the effects of the environment. If we take good care of our skin it will take good care of us by helping it do its job. Along with your regular cleansing and moisturizing, these 10 tips are some other ways to help keep your skin healthy and glowing.
Avoid Sun exposure
It has been proven that sun exposure, especially during the peak hours of the day from Noon to 2:00 p.m., will age you and damage your skin. So don’t leave home without your hat and wearing sunscreen with at least a 30 SPF.
Eat healthy food
I call these “healthy skin food”. Foods that actually benefit your skin form the inside out such as salmon, broccoli, almonds and berries.
Do not smoke
This goes without saying. The effects of taking in carbon monoxide is not only detrimental to your health but ultimately bad for your skin.
Avoid excessive alcohol
Excessive use of alcohol will dehydrate your skin making it appear dry, sluggish and greyish in appearance. Limit your intake of alcohol or do not drink it at all.
Drink plenty of water
Nothing is more important to our bodies than adequate intake of water. You want to keep your hydrated. This will help to plump up your skin and give it a fresh glow.
Get plenty of rest
Yes it is true, there is such a thing as “beauty sleep!” 7-9 hours of sleep each day helps to keep your skin healthy by regenerating skin cells which is important for glowing skin.
Stay active and exercise regularLY
Regular exercise helps keep your skin healthy by circulating blood throughout your system and taking oxygen to every cell including skin cells. This rejuvenates your skin.
Avoid stress as much as possible
I believe self-care is important for healthy skin. We all come across some type of stress in our lives but it’s how we handle it and what we do to curtail it. I find yoga, meditation, a long walk or a good book may help.
I always recommend a good facial but if your budget doesn’t allow it then create a facial routine for yourself at home. There are many DIY and homemade facial recipes you can use. The point is to take one day a month and spend a little extra time on your skin.
Use good, effective products
Use quality skin care products that will address your skin concerns. Don’t just use what everyone else is. Use what works for you! My Sky Essentials Skin Care products were formulated with all natural ingredients and no harsh chemicals so you rest easy knowing you are using the best products for achieving radiant skin.
