8 Easy Ways to Take Care of Your Skin

While you may get regular top ups at a Skin Vitality Botox Clinic, there are ways to help keep your skin looking great in between visits. In this article, we’re going to look at the best ways to take care of your skin and keep it looking its absolute best without using any products. Take a look below for more information.

Stay hydrated

Water is a great way to boost your overall health, but it does a ton of good for your skin too. It helps to minimise dryness and flakiness and it can help improve elasticity. If you want plump and young-looking skin, making sure you drink enough water each day is imperative.

If you hate water, you could consider drinking herbal teas and tisanes or infusing your water with fresh fruit.

Eat a balanced and healthy diet

Getting all of the nutrients that your body needs is another easy way to keep your skin looking great. Fruits and vegetables have lots of antioxidants in, which are molecules that protect your skin from free radicals that cause ageing.  In addition, getting enough fibre in your diet will help your body to remove waste and toxins. Toxin removal can help your skin to glow and limit outbreaks. 

If it is possible, you should try to limit the number of processed and refined foods that you eat too. While they’re convenient, they often contain lots of added sugars and fat that can harm your overall health and wreak havoc on your skin.

Get enough sleep

Sleep is when your body fights off disease, recycles old cells, and resets itself, getting it ready for another day. Getting enough sleep is imperative for your physical and mental health, and it can help your skin to look great too! Going to bed earlier can help your skin to remain plump and soft, and you’ll feel great in the morning.

Exercise regularly

Exercise gets your blood pumping and can help your skin to get all of the nutrition it needs. As circulation increases, blood flow to your skin does too, meaning that the nutrients your skin needs are more readily available. It is recommended that you get 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise each week, and this can help to keep your skin looking great.

Manage your stress levels

Stress is as much a physical ailment as it is a mental one, and too much stress can take its toll on your body without you even realising. When you’re chronically stressed, your cortisol levels are at an increased level which leads to an increase in sebum production. Sebum is usually helpful for the skin but if it is produced in too high quantities, it can cause clogged pores and outbreaks.

Keep your pillowcase clean

As with your clothes, keeping your pillowcase clean is good hygiene practice. Since you sleep on your pillowcase every night, if you’re sleeping on something that is dirty, it is going to transfer this dirt to your face, leading to outbreaks. Washing your pillowcase every week is a great way of keeping your skin clean and clear.

Avoid the sun as much as possible

While getting a tan is great, too much sun can actually damage your skin. Wearing sunscreen is imperative for healthy skin as it protects your skin from UV rays, but you should also do your best to keep to the shade and wear a hat if you’re going to be out in the sun for a long time.

UV rays wreak all sorts of havoc on unprotected skin, including age lines, sunspots, and even skin cancer. Cover up as best as possible and wear sunscreen, even on winter days, to keep your skin looking great.
