The secrets are out. You can have that beautiful skin you've been wanting, and it's easier to achieve than expected. Some of these secrets are so easy to do and may already be part of your routine, you just have to be more consistent in following them. Check these out!
Get plenty of rest
Your body recuperates the most when you're asleep. This is the time when your skin’s blood flow increases and the organ rebuilds its collagen and repairs damage from UV exposure, reducing blemishes. You also get to decrease your cortisol levels (the stress hormone), refraining your skin from an inflammatory state which can cause dullness and puffiness around the eyes.
Hydrate, hydrate, hyrdrate
Whether or not you're on the move, water constantly evaporates from your skin, so you need to constantly replenish your body with water. Hydration keeps your skin plump, elastic, smooth and young-looking. Otherwise, your skin will dry up and eventually turn wrinkly and saggy. Never mind the sugary drinks--water is the only hydrator that your skin needs.
When you realize the importance of UV protection to keeping your skin beautiful and flawless, you're definitely going to want to follow suit. Here's why: Even as short as 10 minutes of exposure to UV rays can cause damage to your skin. To avoid this from happening, apply an ample layer of SPF 30 (or more) sunscreen on your face before proceeding to your usual makeup routine (consider it like your primer). Some foundation products do offer SPF protection, so that's a great option to apply on your skin too. Just make sure it's toxin-free!
Go natural and organic
Speaking of toxins, here's a little reminder that whatever you put on your skin eventually ends up in your body. Your body understands and responds positively to ingredients naturally given by nature. There are plenty of scientific evidence that prove the healing powers of handmade organic beauty products. In contrast, manmade alternatives like synthetics, chemicals, etc. on your body can cause sensitivities and irritations. Using these harmful options that contain irritating chemicals will eventually take a toll on your skin.
