We all want to look our best and a major part of that is having healthy-looking, glowing skin. We’d all prefer to be told that our skin looks fabulous than be told we look tired, stressed, or even old. Many factors of modern life – aside from natural aging – cause our skin to look tired, wrinkly, and simply not fresh. Stress, lack of sleep, tiredness, bad diet, and many other things can have serious effects on our skin. But how do we combat this? There are a few great tips below from experts that will help your skin glow, no matter your age.
One of the most widely trusted and respected supplements for skin, joints, and bones is collagen. There are many benefits to taking collagen, and it comes in many forms. Collagen, according to BestHealth.org, is the best way to reverse signs of aging of your skin. Collagen is a substance we naturally produce – a protein – though the production of it declines as we age. This is why some of the common signs of aging tired skin are beaten by taking it as a supplement. It helps to keep your skin elasticity, strengthens your skin, and helps keep it hydrated. All of these will help create glowing, fresh looking skin. You can buy collagen in a tasteless powder form, making it easy to add to broths, drinks, or any liquid component in your meals. This is an easy and cheap way to add collagen to your diet if you aren’t getting enough already. You can also buy skin creams with collagen as an added ingredient. Applying straight to the skin has been shown in some studies to help reduce wrinkles and lines in the skin.
Exfoliation is something we’ve certainly all heard of. However, a recent survey showed that over 50% of people skip this part of their skincare regime. Why? Maybe because it takes a little while extra, and we don’t want to spend the time doing more skincare than we have to. Whether that’s the case or not, we are strongly recommending incorporating exfoliation into your skincare routine. Exfoliation gently removes the top layer of dead skin leaving fresh-looking skin that is more radiant and reflects more light. Instant glowing improvement. We recommend using a skin exfoliating scrub on your face two to three times per week. Gently rub it into your skin for a minute or so before rinsing it off with warm water. Another form of exfoliation to add in a couple of times a month is a face mask. Using an exfoliating face mask semi-regularly will give a much deeper exfoliation than a simple scrub. Follow these two steps for the best results for quick-fix healthy-looking skin.
We all know it, but not many of us do anything about it: we should all be drinking more water. Being adequately hydrated is not just good for your insides, it’s great for your skin too! Most doctors recommend 8 glasses or 2 liters of water per day. After all, 64% of your skin is made up of water molecules. Clearly then, the more water you drink the more hydrated and fresh your skin will look. For an extra boost, try using a topical moisturizer to add extra moisture to your skin. Dry skin is not a good look, it can certainly add years to you. So drink plenty and moisturize daily for excellently radiant skin.
When it comes to diet, there are a few major no-nos for your skin. Sadly, most of them are things a lot of us love to eat! Refined sugar, oily carbs, fast foods, and chocolate have all been shown to have adverse effects on human skin and complexion. On the other hand, the more leafy greens, lean proteins, and fruits you get into your diet, the better your skin will be.
A final note for healthy skin is vitamin D. Vitamin D is produced when our skin is exposed to sunlight. It does a lot of important things in your body, some of which relate to the skin itself. Vitamin D contributes to skin cell growth and rejuvenation, making it a key component in healthy-looking skin. Make sure you get 10 minutes of time in the sun every day if possible, and take vitamin D supplements through the winter.
