What is the secret to healthy-looking skin? There actually isn’t a secret; it is more like a series of good habits and products that can unlock younger, healthy-looking skin that you can be proud of.
But what exactly are these tips you need to put into practice for healthy, smooth and supple skin?
Your body is 60% water, and your skin is 70% water. As your skin is your largest organ, it goes without saying you need to be hydrated. Drinking enough water daily will help you boost your skin and avoid dryness and loss of elasticity. You can get water from any food and drink, but drinking a glass or two of the clear stuff each day will boost your skin no end.
The sun ages your skin super fast. UVA and UVB rays can damage skin cells, and using SPF daily can help you block these rays and prevent any damage from the sun.
You can use an SPF alongside your moisturiser or find one that has it in. But in all honesty, SPF is the closest thing your skin will get to a magic elixir, so if you want to ensure your skin stays youthful and healthy, SPF is a non-negotiable.
Use The Right Products
The right skincare products for your skin are the ones that support the skin you have, not the most expensive or the latest trends. If you have dry skin, use moisture-boosting products and avoid harsh products that will strip your skin. If you have oily skin, use products formulated to absorb the moisture without clogging pores and are lightweight on your skin.
Ingredients such as vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, peptides, retinol and collagen have excellent anti-ageing properties, while glycerin and hyaluronic acid are ideal for those with dry skin. Knowing what ingredients your products contain, what is best for your skin and how to apply them can help you improve your skincare regime and give your skin what it needs.
Getting the right beauty treatments for your skin can help you improve its health and appearance. Chemical peels, for example, can remove layers of dead skin, while microdermabrasion can help to resurface the skin, which is particularly useful for those struggling with dry or uneven skin.
Always ensure that you check the qualifications and reputation of any provider before you agree to undertake any type of beauty treatment. Experienced and qualified professionals such as Lavish Beauty RN won’t mind you checking their credentials so you can be confident your skin is in the right hands.
Use Gentle Cleansers
It can be tempting to use harsh cleaners and scrubs on your face in the hope that they will help remove any dead skin, clear pores, and so on. However, it is thought that gentle cleansing is better for your skin. Use a mild cleanser and apply it to your skin after wetting it with warm water. Use a circular motion to rub the cleanser in and then rinse it off thoroughly before patting your skin dry.
There are many tips you can use to improve your skin and care for it the way it needs you to. These tips can be extremely effective in skin care routines for most people.
