Genius Ways to End Your Quest for Happy & Healthy Skin

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to your skin’s health. When your skin is happy, it definitely shows and glows. Your skin is the largest organ on the body and therefore requires quite a lot of TLC to keep it soft, supple and healthy. In this article, you’ll learn a few ways you can keep your skin looking and feeling happy and healthy all year round. Genius ways to end your quest for happy & healthy skin.

1. Avoid Washing with Harsh Soaps

There are not many things more drying and damaging to the health of your skin than washing with harsh soaps. The same goes for any sort of face cleansers or face wash. Strong soaps and detergents strip the oils from the skin, leaving it dry and prone to flaking.

After bathing, it’s an excellent practice to pat yourself dry rather than rub a towel all over your skin, as towel fibres can be somewhat harsh as well.

2. Too Much Sun Will Damage Your Skin

A little bit of sunlight most days helps give you a healthy dose of Vitamin D, but too much sun exposure will dry and damage your skin. It can also lead to premature aging. Apart from some Vitamin D exposure for a few minutes, it’s always wise to wear a quality sunscreen anytime you venture outdoors or spend time at the beach.

3. Moisturise Regularly

It’s a basic tip, but one that’s often neglected by many people. It’s all about getting into the habit of putting moisturiser on your face and body, preferably daily. Choose a moisturiser of decent quality, as it will help hydrate your skin, as well as protect it from the elements.

You might decide to choose a moisturiser that’s been specifically formulated for the face and your skin type, & a different moisturiser for the rest of your body.

4. Book In For a Facial Or Skincare Treatment

This is one of the prime ways to really pamper your skin and yourself. Facials and skincare treatments are rejuvenating and relaxing experience. From time to time, you need to be self-indulgent and do something for yourself.

A facial will cleanse and tone your skin, hydrate it and give you a healthy, youthful glow. By the time you leave the salon or day spa, you’ll feel refreshed and revitalised. It’s the same for an all-over body skincare experience. Your skin will thank you for it.

5. Eat Healthy and Stay Hydrated

“You are what you eat” is a cliché for a good reason. It’s the truth.

If you repeatedly fill yourself with junk food, oily food or anything that’s considered unhealthy, it’ll eventually show in your skin. The more healthy and nutritious your diet is, the better you will look. Plenty of fresh vegetables, fruit and salad, is always going to give your skin a healthy appearance.

Drinking lots of water throughout the day is also a vital part of your skincare routine. Staying hydrated prevents your skin from drying out and can help slow down the aging process. Hydrated skin also remains protected from the elements, keeping it soft and supple.

6. Antioxidants for Healthy Skin

It’s been proven that antioxidants, often in the form of Vitamin C, are very beneficial for the health of the skin.
Eating foods that are high in Vitamin C or taking Vitamin C supplements is key to a more youthful appearance, as well as using skincare products and moisturisers that contain Vitamin C and antioxidants.

7. Keep Your Stress Levels Down

There’s nothing quite like being stressed to make you look older, drawn-out and rundown. It might be impossible to avoid stress altogether, but there are ways to reduce your stress levels, so it doesn’t affect you mentally, nor detract from your appearance.

Practice meditation or yoga, get into an exercise routine, or take a break and get out in nature. Anything that clears your mind and makes you feel calm will reduce stress.

The Takeaway

There are many things you can do to take care of your skin. It’s merely a matter of being mindful of looking after yourself, eating healthy, getting plenty of rest and pampering yourself. Alternatively, consult a skincare specialist for professional skin care advice.
