5 TIPS FOR YOUR HEALTHIEST
SKIN THIS NEW YEAR
Who doesn’t want to show off radiant luminous skin? Fine-tuning your daily regimen can lead to an undeniable healthy glow. What better way to begin the New Year than to start with a more radiant you! Here are 5 easy ways for glowing skin from the inside out:
1. LOAD UP ON SKIN LOVING NUTRIENTS
Your diet may be the reason to your lackluster complexion. Jumpstart your metabolism, energy can really help skin glow by eating nutrient rich foods and by reducing the intake of processed sugary foods. By providing a steady supply of micronutrients that will aid skin cell regeneration to support youthful skin. Incorporating nutrient dense foods like Turmeric, Kale, Salmon, Quinoa and Beets will feed your skin the essential nutrients it needs to stay soft, supple and blemish-free.
2. SHIFT TO NATURAL SKINCARE
Natural high-quality ingredients in skincare enhances the natural function of your dermis by working in synergy with the skin and utilizing active ingredients that help optimize regeneration. Synthetic ingredients attempt to recreate what natural ingredients accomplish but with the addition of unnecessary chemicals and possible skin irritants to follow. Skin is the body’s largest organ and research shows it can absorb up to 60% of the ingredients in the products we apply. The vast majority of skincare products available today contain commonly used synthetic ingredients such as Parabens and SLS. These synthetic ingredients have been recognized to cause irritation in some and may have damaging effects in the long-run.
3. MIST YOUR WAY THROUGH THE DAY
Constant fluctuations in temperature, especially when migrating from indoor to outdoor, can cause skin to be out of whack. The result is an overproduction of sebum which can lead to breakouts. A full face of makeup throughout the day can also leave skin a bit parched. A quick fix to these issues is to use a hydrating mist throughout the day to refresh and replenish lost moisture to restore skin’s natural balance.
4. MOVE YOUR BODY
Nourish skin cells and keep them vital by increasing blood flow with exercise. Blood flow helps flush waste products from your body, including free radicals, from working cells and provides more oxygen to tissues. It also helps reduce stress which contributes to the rapid aging process. Just 2 to 3 times a week can make a vital difference.
5. TREAT YOUR FACE TO A MASSAGE
This routine can make such a difference, if consistently done. Many cultures since the ancient times have lauded the various benefits of facial massage to keeping a youthful and luminous complexion. Massage helps stimulate blood flow and lymphatic drainage, removes toxins that have accumulated in the skin and helps relieve tension. The muscles in your face may tend to tense up and are more likely to be a breeding ground for wrinkles. It also helps add vitality to a dull complexion. Always keep in mind to massage in an upward circular motion.
Make these simple changes to see how your complexion responds. Your skin will thank you!
