Exfoliate

Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin can reveal a brighter and more even-toned skin. Exfoliating treatments can help remove stubborn surface skin cells that cause dull skin, while also unclogging pores and dissolving any buildup. It’s important not to overdo it though – exfoliating twice a week will keep pores minimized, reduce fine lines and resurface the skin perfectly.

Good Night's Sleep

Good Night's Sleep

It’s important to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night, so your skin is able to rejuvenate regularly. Not enough sleep can cause an increase of inflammatory cells in the body, which means less collagen and hyaluronic acid in the body responsible for bright, glowing skin. An irregular sleep pattern also causes stress, which is a leading cause of aging skin.

Proper Sun Care

Proper Sun Care

UV rays given off from the sun are the number one cause of premature skin aging. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight as much as possible, and ensure you wear a hat and sunscreen when sunlight can’t be avoided. A minimum of SPF 30 should be evenly applied to the face, neck and body prior to sun exposure, and keep in mind that sunscreen is only effective for three hours so reapplication is key.

Cleanse

Cleanse

It’s important to effectively remove makeup to promote clearer, healthier skin. Cleansing your skin regularly will also reduce exposure to pore-clogging debris and pollution that dramatically increase signs of aging.

Mild cleansers are important, and its best to use one that contains ceramides or other fatty acids so you don’t strip your skin of its natural moisture.

Moisturize

Moisturize

Moisturizers help our skin barrier by providing lipids, protecting from external chemicals, and providing water to our often parched skin. A daily routine should involve a great moisturizer both in the morning and at night. Try incorporating a moisturizer with SPF into your morning routine to minimize potential sun damage.

Food & Drink

Food & Drink

Your skin acts as an excretory system to get rid of substances that don’t agree with your body, so diet is an important factor when considering skin care.

Essential fatty acids help prevent inflammation and the increase of fine lines, sagging and blotchiness. Foods like almonds, salmon and tuna are all good sources of fatty acids.

Artificial sugars are difficult for the body to break down, and cause a decrease in collagen which is what keeps your skin smooth and firm. Stick to natural sugars and low-glycemic carbs which your body can process slowly and easily.

Drinking plenty of water throughout the day also promotes healthy skin by keeping you hydrated and flushing your body of unhealthy toxins and chemicals.
