We all know at least one person who not only seems to be aging beautifully, but also seems to have never had a blemish in their life. Their skin always looks healthy, young and glowing. Ever wonder how they do it? Here are 5 habits that people with healthy skin swear by.
ONE. Keep Skin Clean & Moisturized
Clean your skin gently without stripping it of all of its natural oils that your skin needs to stay moisturized. Cleansing every night is a must as sleeping in makeup or even the dirt and oil from the day can be detrimental to your skin. Sleep in a good night moisturizer if your skin needs an extra boost of moisture.
TWO. Drink Water & Not Sugar
Everyone always recommends drinking more water but that’s because it is a proven method of keeps your skin moisturized and fresh from the inside out. Trade in sugary drinks for water and you won’t regret what it does for your skin!
THREE. Keep Whatever Touches Your Skin Clean
Bacteria, dirt and oil can build up on objects that frequently touch your skin so they should be cleaned often. This includes makeup brushes, your cellphone, keyboard and pillowcase. It’s a good rule of thumb to touch your face with your hands as little as possible as well to prevent spreading dirt from what your hands have touched over the course of the day.
FOUR. Relax & Destress
Stress increases the amount of cortisol your body produces which in turn breaks down the collagen in your skin and causes wrinkles. Methods of lowering the level of stress are different for everyone but some good ones are to simply slow down and do something that you enjoy and relaxes you. Working out is also a good way to relieve stress. Going to the gym for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week has been shown to reverse the signs of aging and increases blood flow which keeps your skin glowing! But sometimes the best and simplest way to start is just by making sure you are getting a solid 7 hours of sleep so your body has enough time to rest.
FIVE. Protect Your Skin
Pick up a broad spectrum sunscreen the next time you go to the beauty store. It blocks both UVB and UVA light to keep it from prematurely aging skin. This also means avoiding the tanning bed and picking up a sunless self tanner instead. Keep your skin healthy and vibrant while still getting a little color? What more could you ask for?
