Here at SkinBase, we know that maintaining your skin’s health is as much about what you put into your body as it is about what you apply to the outside. Our 8 step rules will make sure you get the results you want as quickly and healthily as possible. Enjoy!
Drink 1.5 litres of mineral water per day.
Drinking adequate amounts of water is a cornerstone of the SkinBase programme and is a lifestyle habit that we hope you continue even after the course of facials.
No tea or coffee after lunch.
SkinBase recommends maximizing your sleep in both length and quality. Caffeine found in tea, coffee, cola drinks and some medicines is the enemy of a good nights sleep. Not only that, but caffeine is a diuretic and so can cause dehydration.
Breakfast everyday on either porridge, fruit, yoghurt, smoothie or 2-3 pieces of fruit.
If we skip breakfast, we are likely to become tired when our brains and bodies run low on fuel. The Face for Life choice of breakfast is designed to be high in fibre, high in antioxidants and provide a slow release of energy throughout the morning. It will kick start your day.
Eat the right sort of food:
Beyond breakfast eat what you would usually eat, however, replace any white refined carbohydrates with brown unrefined carbohydrates.
One of the most aging foods we eat is sugar. Refined, processed ingredients like flour are quickly broken down by the body into glucose (which is just another form of sugar).
Sugar actively damages collagen production which affects bones and tissues and causes skin to wrinkle and sag.
With regards to premature aging, smoking is by far the worst thing you can do to your skin, next to sun damage.
Avoid alcohol consumption.
In order to get the most from your 8 week transition we recommend that you try to avoid alcohol altogether. We have to be realists though! If you do find yourself on the wrong side of a bottle of merlot, drink one glass of water to each glass of wine.
Exercise for 25 minute, 3 times a week.
Exercise can help to reduce the signs of aging, if not directly, then at least by promoting other parts of a healthy lifestyle that directly fight the signs of premature aging. Exercise improves circulation and invigorates skin, helps supply oxygen to skin cells, and is great way to combat stress. Follow a simple daily skincare routine, cleansing and moisturising according to your skin type. By following a simple skincare routine, you can make sure the skin is moisturised and keep those wrinkles at bay.
