Everyone wants a healthy glowing skin complexion, but are our daily habits interfering with our skin goals? Life can be so crazy and busy that we do not realize the lack of attention our skin receives. With busy schedules, we can get exhausted and neglect one of the most important to-do’s on our lists which is self-care! We can jumpstart the process of improving your skin just by adding some simple, healthy habits into our daily routine.
One of the biggest things that cannot be stressed enough when it comes to healthy skin is cleanliness. This starts with washing your face daily, even on those nights when you are exhausted and want to put it off until the next day. Make removing your makeup and washing your face a daily habit. Along with cleansing, wash your pillowcases at least once a week. What happens is while you are laying your head on the pillow; it collects body oils, dead skin cells, dust mites, and more. This can cause your skin to have clogged pores, acne, or skin irritation. Also, be sure to keep up with cleaning your makeup brushes and sponges. The bacteria from your makeup and reusing dirty brushes puts that bacteria right back on your skin. Cleanliness is a big factor in healthy skin.
We have all heard the basics to maintain healthy skin, but a reminder never hurts! You can incorporate simple habits in your daily routine that your skin will appreciate. Everyone knows to drink water and stay hydrated, but it can be easier said than done. Drinking water consistently does wonders for your skin and overall health. Make sure to try to get in 7-9 hours of sleep every night. Lastly, what you put in your body will show in many ways. One of them is through your skin. Eating a clean diet will definitely help out when it comes to glowing skin.
Self-care is the best care! A good exfoliation once a week added to your skin care regimen will improve the texture of your skin by removing those dead skin cells. It leaves this bright, smooth glow we all want. Protecting your skin from the sun with sunscreen is a must. Don’t stop at the moisturizer before you head out the door. Prevent the aging the sun does to the skin with a protective layer of sunscreen. Going along with aging, slow the process with the power of moisturizing! Moisturizing is a key component of anti-aging. The first signs of aging show in the neck, hands, and chest so be sure to show some extra love in those areas.
Start by adding a couple of tips you might have learned or needed a reminder of into your daily life. Be kind to your skin and see how it will start to show. Even the smallest steps make a difference and benefit you in the long run. It starts with consistency and patience when it comes you’re your skincare journey!
