Your skin can cause you many problems, as the seasons change so does your skin, it can become dry or oily depending on the environment and your lifestyle.
Here are our top 10 tips to help keep skin healthy all year round.
1: Keep hydrated
Keeping hydrated plays a vital part in maintaining healthy skin; drinking enough water to hydrate the skin can clear spots and keep skin balanced and healthy.
2: Pick the right products
Cleansers, toners and moisturizers are great to keep skin in good condition. Finding the right product is important for keeping a good balance in the skin. Test to see if you have oily, dry or combination skin; you can then find the best corresponding product for your skin type.
3: Avoid long, hot & steamy showers and baths
Hot and steamy showers and baths can strip away the outer layer of the epidermis. This can lead to dry and scaly skin. Having a lukewarm shower or bath instead is much better for the skin.
4: Protect skin from the sun
Although everyone loves that sun kissed look, it’s essential to protect your skin from the sun. UV rays can damage the skin and lead to uneven skin tone as well as sun burn. It’s very important to apply SPF on a regular basis whilst in the sun.
5: Eat your greens
A simple tip such as adding a side salad to your lunch or dinner could lead to radiant and blemish-free skin. Greens such as spinach and rocket are packed with natural antioxidants, which are great for the skin.
6: Get enough sleep
Getting enough sleep is very important, and not getting enough sleep can cause stress which could lead to breakouts and a dull complexion. Whilst sleeping your skin regenerates and recovers from daily activities.
7: Always remove makeup before bed
We all have those nights where we just want to get straight into bed and do nothing else but sleep. Makeup can clog pores and lead to bacterial infections leading to break outs. So always try to remove your makeup before you go to sleep.
8: Eat a healthy diet
Keeping a balanced diet is very important to keep skin healthy, you must make sure you get the essential fats and vitamins you need in order to keep skin clear and healthy. If you do not have a balanced diet you could find you skin becoming oily which can lead to breakouts.
9: Clean makeup brushes
Your makeup brushes collect dirt and bacteria from both your makeup and your skin, this is then stored on the brush until washed. Not washing makeup brushes can cause breakouts.
10: Eat watermelon
This lycopene-rich fruit can reduce damage and redness caused from sun exposure, leaving you with an even skin tone. Watermelon can also even prevent wrinkles, an easy and tasty tip!
