Tired of worrying about unwanted visitors setting up camp on your face and carrying around extra baggage under your eyes? Whatever your skin issue may be, use these great tips and tricks to get glowing, flawless skin. After trying these beauty tricks, you’ll have people looking at your face for all the right reasons.
Enjoy Fish oil
Embrace an inside-out approach by combining a balanced, healthy diet and supplements with your skin-care regime. 500-1,000mg supplements of purified fish oil will keep your skin hydrated and naturally moisturized, and they can also help minimize symptoms of eczema.
Under Eye Lines and Circles
Pay special attention to the under-eye area as this uniquely contoured, sometimes translucent skin often fails to conceal underlying blood vessels, thus causing dark shadows. As the thinnest skin on the body, the eyelids tend to be very sensitive. It’s trial and error with eye creams, but look for those which contain a cocktail of vitamins and collagen-building copper peptides so it plumps and smoothes fine lines, reduces dark shadows, and refines the under-eye skin texture.
Green tea, vitamin C, and CoQ10 are all brilliant antioxidants. Antioxidants have proven to be extremely important as an aging preventative in a skin-care. Find the foods and vitamins with them in and start taking them!
Be friends with your skin.
That means no picking, squeezing, or fussing over your blemishes. Think of your skin as your best friend and treat it as such! Fussing with your skin will only lead to scarring and more breakouts. Try to have regular microdermabrasion facials to keep your skin youthful and breakout free.
Sunnies when the sun’s out
We know it’s moving towards winter, but sunglasses are a must to protect your eyes and the surrounding skin from premature aging, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Slough It Off: Physical Exfoliants
Exfoliation is key in order to remove the dead, complexion-dulling skin cells that accumulate on top of your skin. Microdermabrasion stops the build of dead skin by blasting it away with thousands of tiny crystals. Have regular microderm facials to ensure radiant and smooth skin.
Make sure you drink plenty of water. As an alternative, try coconut water — it’s a huge trend right now and helps to naturally keep you hydrated.
Get Fit to Save Face
Exercising regularly doesn’t just keep off the pounds, it will also retain your skin’s elasticity and prevent wrinkles.
Step Up Your SPF
Never go out without SPF 30 on your face, neck, ears, chest, and hands. This will help keep dark spots and premature skin aging under control. If you’re driving a long distance, keep applying SPF 30 on your hands, face, and neck. And don’t forget that glass doesn’t filter UV rays, even in your home or office!
Maximize Your Moisture
Apply a thick night cream! This becomes absolutely essential once you hit 30 to help boost your skin’s regeneration at night, but if you can get yourself in the habit before then, you’ll be set to age gracefully!
Say No to Sulphates
Sulphates are surfactants that make your cleanser foam, but they strip too much of your skin’s sebum away, leaving you feeling dry, flaky, and even itchy. Look for sulphate-free formulas of body washes and face cleansers and check the ingredient labels — sodium lauryl sulphate is the biggest culprit, but any ingredient in which the last word is ‘sulphate’ is best avoided.
Good luck! x
