These days, life has become very stressful and hectic. So, even finding five minutes every day for skin care can be a tall order.
So, what are we to do? After all, we know that if we don’t care for our skin enough, we’ll end up looking old and wrinkly.
Well, I have received several requests to provide some helpful, easy, and quick-to-follow tips for making daily skincare a breeze.
So, I have created this list of simple but helpful skin care tips.
And anyone who follows these simple tips should benefit with healthier skin.
Now, let’s move to the six quick and easy-to-follow skin care tips for healthier skin:
Eat The Right Kind Of Food
You are what you eat.
This statement will forever be true. So, if you want to stay healthy and have healthy/glowing skin, you need to eat healthily.
Healthy foods I am mentioning include plenty of green vegetables, foods with anti-oxidants, and foods with high water content.
These include foods like salmon, spinach, kale, broccoli, olive oil, blueberries, and avocados.
Also, it goes without saying that eating fast food of any kind is going to be bad for your health.
Water makes up 64% of your skin.
That means that your skin’s water/moisture level is very important for your skin health. If the amount of water in your skin goes down, you get dry, flaky, and wrinkly skin.
And long periods of poor skin hydration can lead to accelerated skin aging. This means that you can look older than your age with more wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
According to the experts, you should drink 2-6 liters of water a day. Staying well-hydrated will give you plump, healthy-looking, and glowing skin. It will also improve your overall health and feeling of wellbeing.
Keep A Nightly Skin Care Routine
The right nightly habits will give you healthy and youthful skin for life.
If you want to keep your healthy-looking skin for many years to come, keep a good nightly skincare routine.
This means that before sleeping, take five minutes to get your skin primed for quick recovery while you sleep. And the first step with this is to remove your makeup.
So, never sleep with your makeup on, no matter how organic it is. Anything that blocks your pores has got to go. This will help your skin breath better and give you a refreshed look every morning.
Make Applying Sunscreen A Rule
Protecting your skin from UV rays and free radicals goes a long way in giving you glowing skin.
Whether you are heading to the shops or going to the beach, always keep your skin protected with sunscreen.
The sunscreen I am talking about is SPF30 and above. This type of sunscreen protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays which can speed up skin aging.
This will help you get less tanned and burned while reducing your chase of getting dull and wrinkly skin.
You may look a little weird if you apply sunscreen every time you step out. But you’ll thank me for it in a few years when you look younger and refreshing compared to your friends.
Keep your skin fresh by exfoliating frequently.
That said, you shouldn’t be scrubbing yourself raw every night. That is just going to end with sensitive and damaged skin.
What you should be doing is gently exfoliating your skin twice a week (at most). Exfoliating your skin will help you remove the dead skin cells that can make your skin look dull.
It simply clears the way for your fresh new skin cells to replace the removed dead cells.
In the end, you get the youthful, healthy, and glowing skin. But remember not to overdo it, or you’ll end up with skin looking like a ripe tomato.
Get Enough Sleep Every Night
Everyone needs their beauty sleep to stay beautiful.
It is paramount that you get enough rest every night to maintain your skin health.
If you don’t, you can end up under-eye dark circles, puffiness, and dull skin. You are also in store for wrinkles and poor skin tone if you don’t get enough rest.
I have found 7-8 hours of peaceful sleep every night is enough to maintain good skin health.
I personally use these skin care tips on a daily basis to keep my skin in top condition.
So, if you want to maintain your healthy-looking skin or want to reduce your skin age, try them out.
