Spending your time and money on skincare products to get that glowing and flawless skin isn’t a bad idea, but do you know that good skin care and healthy lifestyle choices can help delay natural aging and prevent various skin problems?
Some skincare tips take less effort than you may think to give you visible results over time, like decreased redness, increased glow, and acne control. While they may be a longer-term commitment, these simple lifestyle tweaks are guaranteed to reap significant results.
Free radicals cause damage to our skin and bodies. They are generated by fried foods, alcohol and pesticides. However, antioxidants can neutralize free radicals, like natural superheroes. It’s important to eat foods with antioxidants such as dark chocolate, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and pecans. It is just as important to use skincare products that include antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, Green Tea, Olive Leaf, Licorice Root, and Pomegranate.
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 give your skin a healthy glow. Eating fruits and vegetables, exercise and restful sleep can all help keep skin hydrated, too.
Exfoliate Your Face
Look for gentle exfoliator with natural ingredients that dissolve the skin's natural “glue” that holds on to dead skin cells, gently removing them without scrubbing, like the ORÍKÌ Black Soap.
The sun causes the majority of aging for skin. Too much sun can cause serious skin damage, contributing to dehydration and forming harmful free radicals. Sunscreens 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.
Exercise helps increase blood flow, drawing oxygen into and free radicals away from the skin. Exercise also helps decrease stress and improve sleep quality. Make sure to wash your face after sweaty workouts.
Use A Moisturizer
Using a moisturizer every day is important for every skin type, whether it is dry, oily, mature, or acne prone. Proper moisturizing helps prevent dry, flaky skin and keeps skin cells performing at their best, preventing fine lines and wrinkles from forming.
Regular Facial wash
You should wash your face when you wake up to remove dirt and oils, and again before bed to remove makeup and grime from the day, but getting regular facial treatments deeply cleanses your face, removes bacteria that accumulate and gives you a more radiant look. Facial treatments like the ORÍKÌ Classic Facial, ORÍKÌ Purifying Facial and the Fountain of Youth (Anti-ageing) facials are always perfect ideas.
