Follow these tips for easy ways to look after your skin!
Looking after your skin is just as important as eating healthily and exercising. Establishing a good skincare routine based on the type of skin you have will help to keep it in good, healthy condition. Here is what you can do to look after yours all year round.
Use The Correct Products For Your Skin
Trying out various skin care products is the best way to find suitable cleansers, toners, and moisturizers. Whether you have dry, sensitive, or oily skin, there is something to suit all skincare types at lilyananaturals.com, which is a good place to start. You just need to put aside 5-10 minutes each day to cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin, ideally in the morning and before you go to sleep to keep your skin in tip-top condition.
Drink Plenty of Water
You may have heard this before but drinking enough water each day is a simple step you can do to keep your skin in good condition. Water is great at maintaining the moisture levels in your skin and keeping its elasticity, which is something you lose over time as you age. A lack of water can also cause wrinkles to appear more, due to your skin being so dry. So top up your water glass frequently.
If you can incorporate a nice healthy balanced diet into your routine, rich with plentiful nutrients such as vitamins and minerals, then you will be doing the world of good to your skin. Foods that are good for your skin include things like oily fish, avocados, green leafy vegetables, nuts, berries, and dark chocolate.
Avoid Sunbathing Excessively
You might want to spend hours lying on a beach in the hot sun, topping up your tan, but realistically you are doing a lot of damage to it by exposing your skin to too much sun. Using sunscreen and wearing a hat is the best way to protect your skin, particularly from the effects of sun damage and skin cancer.
Your skin will thank you if you do not get into the habit of smoking. If you don’t want to have wrinkled, tired, and older-looking skin then definitely avoid picking up a cigarette.
Reduce Your Level of Stress
Easier said than done, but trying to reduce the level of stress in your life will have a positive effect on your skin’s wellbeing. When you are stressed you are more likely to have skin breakouts due to the increased levels of cortisol in your body which regulate your hormone levels. If you want to prevent skin flare-ups from occurring before an important event, then finding ways to incorporate a relaxing bedtime routine, will do wonders for the health of your skin.
