Recognizing which best practices support skin health and following them consistently are necessary for overall well-being. Remember, healthy skin not only improves the way you look on the outside, but it also enhances the way your body functions on the inside. Try these six top strategies for healthy skin.
Following a cleansing routine can reverse or prevent the negative effects of aging on skin. Cleansing removes dirt, pollutants, and pore-clogging oil from the epidermis.
In addition, regular exfoliation is equally important. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the epidermis and enables new skin cells to emerge, leaving skin looking brighter and smoother. Cleansing and exfoliation also readies the skin so ingredients in your products can properly penetrate its surface.
The body is made up primarily of water, which means it needs water to properly function. Good hydration — recommended daily amount between 2 - 3 liters — helps your joints stay lubricated, removes waste and impurities from the body, and hydrates the cells to keep your skin looking soft, supple, and smooth.
Additionally, the natural lipids found in your skin are lost throughout the course of a day. Replenish moisture inside and out by using moisturizer in addition to hydrating with water.
Protection from the sun’s damaging UV rays can minimize the formation of lines and wrinkles, prevent other skin problems from developing, and decrease your risk of skin cancer. Try your best to avoid hours of peak sunlight. Always protect your face and eyes with a wide brim hat, wear sunglasses, and apply all-natural sunscreen to any exposed skin.
Skin is restored and rejuvenated when you rest, so try sleeping the recommended 7 to 9 hours each night. Relieve stress by incorporating relaxing, self-care activities into your day and scaling back on your to-do list so that you are not overworked or overwhelmed.
Nix sugar and processed foods to restore the skin’s youthful look and slow down the decline of beneficial collagen and elastin in the skin. Select plant-based foods such as whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables as the foundation of a balanced diet. These foods provide essential vitamins and nutrients like Vitamins A, C, and D as well as riboflavin and niacin, which are influential in healing skin and reducing your risk of skin disorders or cancers.
