1. Wash Your Face
Wash your face again before bed to remove make up and grime from the day. You should also wash your face after you sweat or workout. Use a gentle, natural face wash.
2. Get More Sleep
We need 7 to 9 hours of restful sleep every night. Sleep is essential for our bodies to restore, rejuvenate and repair. “Beauty Sleep” is a real thing. Our skin produces new collagen when we sleep. It’s like visiting the fountain of you the very night. Going to bed and waking up at consistent times helps with restful sleep.
3. Breathe Clean Air
Heavy air pollution, cigarette smoke and artificial fragrances can really impact skin health. They can form harmful free radicals and cause skin irritations. If you can’t avoid these, help repair your skin with non toxic products.
4. Use Antioxidants
Free radicals cause damage to our skin and bodies. Fried foods, alcohol and pesticides generate free radicals. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, like natural super heroes. Vitamin C is a popular antioxidant. There are many natural ingredients that contain antioxidants: Green Tea, OliveLeaf, Licorice Root, and Pomegranate, to name a few. Foods with antioxidants include dark chocolate, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and pecans.
5. Exfoliate Your Face
Look for gentle exfoliating ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) found in natural fruit acids. They can help gently remove the dead skin cells. Alpha hydroxy acids also act as a humectant, that draw moisture to the skin.
6. Exercise Regularly
Exercise helps decrease stress and improve sleep quality. Make sure to wash your face after sweaty workouts.
7. Use A Moisturizer
Using a moisturizer every day is important for every skin type whether itis dry, oily, mature, combination or acne prone. This can help prevent fine lines andwrinkles from forming.
8. Drink Water
Our skin needs water. Drinking water feeds the skin from the inside. Dehydrated skin can look dull, be itchy and dry and make lines more noticeable. It can also enhance dark areas around your eyes and nose. Alcohol and coffee dehydrate skin. Drinking plenty of water keeps skin hydrated and can giveyour skin a healthy glow. Eating fruits and vegetables, exercising and restful sleep can all help keep skin hydrated too.
9. Wear Sun Screen
The sun causes the majority of aging for skin. Too much sun can cause serious skin damage from dehydration to harmful free radicals. Sun screens provide essential protection from the sun’s harmful rays and should be worn when you are in the sun for long periods of time. You should also wear protective clothing and limit sun exposure.
10. Read Ingredient Lists
Quality ingredients make quality products. Artificial, toxic ingredients should not be put on or in yourbody. There aren’t many skin care regulations in the United States and very few ingredients are banned. The Europe Union (EU) has stricter regulations and bans over 1,300 ingredients. It is important to read and understand ingredients but it can get overwhelming. Here are a few of the things you should always avoid: mineral oil, parabens, propylene glycol, andartificial fragrance. The Environmental Working Group is also a good resource.
