Eating well, exercising regularly, and living a healthy lifestyle are some of the most commonly known tips on getting youthful and healthy skin. While your diet and lifestyle significantly impact your skin condition, there are more steps you can take to maintain glowing and younger-looking skin.
The number one secret to youthful skin – drinking enough water – is not a myth. Staying adequately hydrated keeps your skin from looking dull, saggy, and loose! While we often think that face moisturisers are sufficient to help keep our skin hydrated, what actually helps alleviate aging or dehydration symptoms isn’t moisturisation, it’s hydration.
Protect Your Skin from the Sun
Always step out with sunscreen as the sun’s ultraviolet rays can damage your DNA cells, cause discolouration, deteriorate the collagen in your skin or worse, increase your risk of skin cancer. A clean, mineral-based SPF should be applied daily, all year round, not only to prevent premature signs of aging, but also overall skin health.
Yet another important reason to prioritise sleep: adequate beauty sleep assists in cell turnover for restoration, detox, and collagen production. Research has shown that poor sleep quality can contribute to increased signs of skin aging like fine lines and wrinkles, so go to bed an hour earlier for #WokeUpLikeThis skin.
Like dust on a glossy surface, the buildup of dead, surface skin cells can make even the most lustrous skin lackluster and ashy. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells that cause your complexion to appear dull and rough. Once they are removed, new skin cells can be produced. Exfoliation often provides immediate results, revealing a more glowy complexion and softer skin.
