These Top 5 Healthy skincare Habits will help you better care for your skin which your future self will thank you for.
1. IF YOU SMOKE ITS TIME TO QUIT
Smoking can speed up the normal aging process of your skin, contributing to wrinkles. These skin changes may occur after only 10 years of smoking. Aside from age, smoking is the strongest predictor of facial wrinkling in men and women.
2. Stay hydrated
Drinking an adequate amount of water daily is essential for overall good health as water aids in digestion, circulation and nutrient absorption in the body. Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and just like any other part of the body, the skin is made up of cells which require an adequate amounts of water to function efficiently and to repair themselves.
3. Wash your face twice daily
Ideally you should be washing your face twice a day with lukewarm water, once in the morning and once at night with the exception of after workouts and excessive sweating. Avoid over-washing your face as too much washing can lead to dry, irritated skin as well as the overproduction of oil/sebum.
4. Sleep at least 7 hours every night
Getting a good nights sleep is essential for overall good health and the same goes for healthy looking skin. While you’re sleeping, the body’s hydration re-balances. Skin is able to recover moisture, while excess water in general in the body is processed for removal. Not getting enough sleep results in poor water balance, leading to puffy bags under your eyes and under-eye circles, as well as dryness and more visible wrinkles.
5. CONSUME MORE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Eliminating saturated fats, junk food, alcohol and refined sugars are proven ways to improve overall health and skin complexion. The best sources for better skin are Pomegranates, blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes. Vitamin C is essential to produce collagen which strengthens the capillaries that supply the skin its much needed nutrients.
