Trying to find time to treat yourself in between working, attending family functions and seeing friends can be tricky, especially when you are trying to keep your lifestyle and diet in check. Don’t fret because it’s not too late to start incorporating a daily routine to help your skin stay healthy, while also taking care of the inner you! We have compiled four every day easy tips, to help encourage clear skin and promote a stress-free lifestyle so you can be the best version of you.
Find a place in your bag for a water bottle
It’s the simplest solution and will improve your skin and wellbeing in so many ways. Water helps rid the body of skin toxins, and when you keep yourself hydrated, your skin is plumper and less likely to dehydrate. Water is not the solution just for healthy skin, it also helps with your digestion, absorption and circulation through the body. If you find it hard to drink water on its own, why not try adding fruits and vegetables like lemons, limes, cucumbers or strawberries into your bottle to spruce up the flavour!
Get the most out of your food
Biotin is great to include in your diet as it helps to prevent dry skin and brittle hair and nails. High-biotin foods include lean meats, eggs, beans, nuts and avocados. If you’re feeling daring, make yourself an avocado scrub to pat into your skin as an organic moisturiser. The natural oils in avocado envelop your skin, helping to soften and hydrate. When wanting to improve your skin, look out for ingredients in foods that will encourage hydration, provide anti-inflammatory sources and increase UV-protective benefits.
Don’t overdo the caffeine
Caffeine can cause toxins to build up in our bodies, which disrupts healthy skin function. Unfortunately, our good wake-me-up friend can be quite dehydrating, so we need to counteract this with water intake. To prevent redness and collagen loss, it is best to have a balanced diet of caffeine and H20, and drink coffee in moderation!
Jump (for your skins love)
Exercising can be daunting; however, you don’t have to be a marathon runner to reap the healthy benefits of physical activity. Increasing blood flow through exercise helps to nourish skin and sends oxygen to your skin cells that carry old cells away. When you work out, your body also releases endorphins, which trigger a positive feeling in the body. Exercises like yoga, pilates or going for walks can help promote blood circulation in your body, which helps your skin to stay healthy and vibrant.
