Seeing an imperfection, blemish or scar on your skin can quickly turn your mood from great to not so great. However, most of these problems can be averted with a few small changes to your lifestyle.
Here are 5 lifestyle changes you need to make now if you want your skin to be healthy and glowing.
Drinking plenty of water is important for a number of reasons. For instance, if you’re an active athlete, you’ll need to be well hydrated both before and after a workout, a game or a match.
Water is also important for your skin and it helps make it more radiant by moisturizing it from the inside and removing toxins.
Watch Your Diet
A lot of things that we eat can affect our skin negatively. This is why you need to avoid or limit things like sugar, salt or alcohol.
On the other hand, eating vegetables and fruits can provide healthy nutrients that will keep your skin glowing and improve its elasticity.
Cleanse When You Wake Up and Before Going to Bed
Our skin is a great collector of dirt and bacteria from the outside. If you don’t take the time at the end of the day to cleanse it with warm water, you’ll soon start noticing acne or other imperfections.
You should also use SkinMedica Facial cleanser at least two times every day – in the morning and in the evening. After cleansing your face, use a soft, clean towel to gently pat your skin dry.
Wear Sunscreen All Year Long
Most people wear a sunscreen only when they go to the beach. The fact is, you need to wear it throughout the year, no matter the season.
In fact, if you skip the sunscreen during the cold winter months, you are risking getting winter burns and these are not kind to your skin.
Get Enough Sleep
Finally, at the end of the day, it’s time for you and your skin to get a well-deserved rest. This is especially important if you want to avoid baggy eyes and dark circles.
Keep in mind that an average person needs between 7 and 8 hours of sleep, so make sure that you get that amount for good health as well as beauty.
