Our skin can be one of the biggest giveaways of our true age, unfortunately. It can often make us regret not having taken better care of our skin during our younger days. Too many nights falling asleep with makeup on and not having a better diet growing up can all be factors causing our skin to look tired and worn out. But thankfully there are some ways we can all improve how our skin looks. As we are in the midst of the winter months, it’s even more vital that we step up our game with skincare and habits, so I thought I would share with you some of the simple steps to obtaining younger looking skin.
Increase the amount of water you drink
Water is one of the most recommended ways of improving your skin tone and condition, but yet many of us don’t drink anywhere near enough. It’s a natural detox that can flush out any bad toxins in our body leaving our skin looking plump and youthful. It is recommended that you drink at least two litres of water per day, but the more you drink, the better condition your skin will be in. However, this isn’t something that will offer speedy results, it’s more of a long term habit that you need to develop.
Get a skincare routine in place for the morning and at night
It’s vital that we have a skincare routine for the morning and at night, and this includes removing every bit of makeup from our faces before we go to bed. This clears our pores and allows our skin to regenerate during the night. It might be worth having a different routine for your morning, and applying more moisture based products at night while it has the time to work it’s magic on the skin. You can invest in particular day or night creams, or even use natural ingredients like coconut oil.
Consider alternative ways to rid your face of wrinkles
Wrinkles are a sign of aging, but they are also a sign of a life well lived filled with happiness and joy. That is because many wrinkles are formed from the act of smiling and laughing. However, not everyone wants to embrace these wrinkles too early on in life, so things like dermal fillers could be the answer you are looking for. Make sure you do plenty of research before trying out new treatments.
Add some key foods to your diet
There are certain foods that you can incorporate into your diet that work wonders for your skin. Things like berries and wild salmon are great additions to your already existing healthy diet. Along with tomatoes, bell peppers and sweet potatoes. All of which have properties and nutrients within them to help achieve a younger looking complexion.
Try some home remedies with store cupboard items
Finally, if you are watching what you spend this month don’t threat, you can still take great care of your skin by using store cupboard items. Things like natural yogurt and honey are a great combination for a DIY face mask. Also, ingredients like oatmeal make a great natural exfoliator, as does coffee granules. Getting looking on websites like Pinterest for other DIY ideas.
I hope this inspires you to take better care of your skin.
