Four things to do for beautiful skin which will not cost you a penny…

Us women spend an awful lot of money on ‘skin savers’. The only problem is, sometimes they work, and sometimes they don’t, but most of the time they will take a large chunk out of your wallet. Here are some suggestions for some skin savers that will be so kind to your wallet. Enjoy!

1) Sleep

First things first, sleep is so so important and really is so crucial for healthy skin. You might have heard of beauty sleep – but did you know it was real? When you don’t get enough sleep, it’s written all over your face – literally. Those dastardly dark circles may as well be coloured on with purple marker! Your body is a hard worker, and during the night it gets busy carrying out repair and maintenance work. Tired old skin cells get replaced with healthy new ones. If you go to bed at the right time and make sure you get enough sleep, your body can do its job and your skin will thank you for it.

2) Water

You cannot drink enough of this magical stuff. Water is ultra-cheap and it is really, really good for your skin. It hydrates your skin and helps prevent it getting dry and flaky. We recommend you drink 8 glasses of water a day. I try to always have a bottle of the good stuff with me, and I drink a huge amount of water. I even have a bottle on my nightstand for when thirst strikes in the middle of the night, and I take a big gulp before I start my day. If you begin the habit of drinking as much water as possible, you will notice a marked improvement in the condition of your skin over time.

3) Exercise

Exercise is another free trick to get your skin looking ah-mazing. When you exercise, you increase the blood flow to your whole body, in turn refreshing your skin cells by giving them crucial nutrients and oxygen. As well as helping your skin to be on its best game, exercise also helps your blood flow to help carry away nasties like free radicals (they sound so much cooler than they actually are!) from your hard-working skin cells.

4) Sun

The sun gets a bad rap, we are warned to steer clear of too much exposure, and too much exposure is bad for our skin. However, we actually need to get some sunlight every day, as our skin processes the UV in sunlight into Vitamin D, which is especially important for healthy muscles and bones. Depending on your skin type, time of year and location, the amount of sun you need will change, so make sure to consider these factors before going out. Generally, a few minutes (15 or so) is enough. Try to steer clear of the sun during the hottest parts of the day. This is when the sun’s rays are strongest (between 11 am and 3 pm).
