We all want glowy, healthy skin right? But to get glowy, healthy skin we have to put in a little bit of effort. Now, if you have searched and scrolled on this topic you've probably read tons of tips and have a long list of products you need (I know I have). That's why I decided to pick the top three tips for glowy, healthy skin that are easy to implement in your daily life.
DRINK WATER and add a supplement
Yes, know we need water, but some days it's not an easy task to drink it (I mean, if it only tasted like wine or coffee, that would make it easier). But we still have to drink it for many reasons including keeping our skin healthy and hydrated. For the days you find yourself struggling, add some flavour by way of supplements like the highly rated, award-winning The Beauty Chef Glow Powder or Vida Glow Marine Collagen, among others. You're not only making it tastier, but you’re also adding nutrients, prebiotics and probiotics to it, which your skin and gut will lap up.
Tip: Use two 1L water bottle and fill them both at the beginning of your day to have ready at your desk. Make it pretty and reusable!
SLEEP and on satin
It's called beauty sleep for a reason... Most healthy adults need between 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night to function at their best. Your body repairs itself and recovers while you snooze, and that leads to a long list of benefits for your looks. For example, your skin makes new collagen when you sleep, which prevents sagging and chances are, you’ve had dark circles or bags under your eyes after a night of too few Zzz’s. Ironically, sleep can also contribute to wrinkle formation *sadface*. And we're not talking temporary pillow marks, but 'sleep wrinkles', as they're known, which are believed to be a result of the skin being pushed and pulled against the pillow, damaging skin-smoothing collagen over time. To avoid this, invest in a silk pillowcase (if you want to go fancier, add a silk eye mask and scrunchie).
Tip: Use a night cream with great ingredients to rejuvenate your skin’s suppleness and glow.
Sun protection isn't only reserved for summer or beach days, you need to wear sunscreen every day of the year, come rain or shine. UVA damage is not reversible and UVA rays are present every day and are the one that penetrates deeper in your skin and can cause skin ageing and skin cancer. Wearing sunscreen every day can protect you from exposure to these rays. Remember that the sun’s damage is cumulative. Every day that you don’t protect your skin is another day that increased your risk of developing skin cancer and ageing your skin. So wearing sunscreen every day is a good habit to get into for sure.
Tip: A cream with SPF 15 protection is good enough for everyday protection but make sure to reapply if you're spending time outdoors.
