7 Ways to
Help Your Skin Look Its Best
your skin looks can greatly affect your confidence and how
you feel about yourself in everyday life. Below are 7 ways
to help you improve your skin.
1. Skin routine
Having a good skin routine is vital to keeping your skin
looking its best. It is general that a skin routine involves
a set of actions both morning and night. Some routines involve
a toner, cleanser and then a moisturiser however others do
not use toner. The most vital part of a skin routine is using
the correct cleanser. This product rids the skin of all the
impurities it collects during the day and also, if you use
it, removes your make-up. It is important to pick the right
one, using a product with more natural products is healthier
for the skin - such as cocoa butter which softens this skin.
However another important element of a good skin routine is
using a decent moisturiser. Some people choose to use a morning
and night cream which provides different consistencies and
different results. This routine is important for long term
clean and healthy skin.
2. Drink water
Your skin contains plenty of water and this functions to
create barrier to protect the skin. Dehydration of the skin
makes skin appear dry and wrinkled and this can be improved
with drinking the correct amount of water (Usually 8 glasses
a day). You can also help to keep this moisture in your skin
by using a moisturiser as stated above.
3. Green tea
Green tea is great for both the body and the skin. It can
provide the skin with protection from sun damage by reducing
inflammation caused by prolonged sun exposure. It can also
help with wrinkles, sagging skin and ageing signs. Due to
its antioxidant properties green tea can slow down these signs
of ageing and give the skin a youthful look and feel. Green
tea can be used on the skin in various ways, the most obvious
being to drink a cup of green tea on a daily basis. However
other methods can include using creams that contain green
tea, especially sunscreen and incorporating it into your skin
routine via face creams.
4. Stress levels
Stress levels can heavily affect the appearance of skin therefore
by significantly reducing your stress your skin will improve.
Various skin problems that can be included in stress induced
skin issues are acne, eczema, hives etc. The release of hormones
when you are tense and stressed that can include cortisol
increase oil production in the skin. This oil produces spots
and blemishes on the skin.
5. Dairy in-take
Lowering your dairy in-take, especially if you suffer from
acne, can help the appearance of your skin. Much like stress,
your diet can induce hormones that cause spots. If your diet
includes lots of dairy or sugar then these hormones can be
produced in excess causing more break-outs.
6. Skin Peels
skin peel is a great treatment for prevention and protection
of the skin. This treatment effectively treats dirt build-up
in the skin, dull skin, clogged pores and removal of dead
skin cells. It can also help with sun damage and pigmentation
problems as well as ageing issues. This treatment can make
the skin appear brighter and clearer. It prevents dirt build
up in pores that cause future spots and blemishes.
Sleep is the time in which your skin replenishes itself.
If you are not getting enough sleep then your skin does not
have time to renew itself properly. This is why most dermatologists
advise a separate cream for night time use. These creams are
often thinner than regular face creams and allow for the skin
to naturally replenish itself. Lack of sleep can make your
skin dull due to breakdown of collagen in the skin and the
chemicals the skin needs for its natural health and can cause
increased acne breakouts.
