No matter what your skin type is, a daily skincare routine can help you maintain overall skin health and improve specific concerns like acne, scarring, and dark spots. A daily skincare routine with some basic steps you can do in the morning and before you sleep will help you start moving towards a youthful, ageless, smooth skin. Here are 5 ways you can take care of your skin right from home!
1. Get plenty of water & add mindful eating habits to your eating routineSetting a strong basis of simple and achievable wholesome habits is the crucial secret sauce for you to get and maintain healthy, smooth & radiant skin. Drinking the proper amount of water will help you combat a variety of skin issues, from wrinkles to psoriasis and eczema. On the other hand, eating appropriate amounts of antioxidants -Vitamin C found in Green Tea, Olive Leaf, etc.- will help you neutralize free radicals, which decrease inflammation and improve skin tightening. Do your best to design a delicious and nutritious weekly meal plan to make sure you have all the nutrients you need to get as many antioxidants as possible and keep a nice cold bottle of water by your side to make sure you drink plenty during the day. Believe us, your body will thank you far beyond glowing skin.
2. Exercise regularly & sleep a proper amount of timeWe are not just talking about two vital aspects to your physical health and emotional wellbeing, but essential moments you should add to your daily schedule to properly keep your skin and cell tissue rejuvenated. Did you know working out tones the skin, improves blood circulation, and oxygenation? Exercise is excellent against fine line and sagging. Also, did you know that while sleeping, your body rebalances & recovers moisture? Combine mindful activity with deep relaxing rest, and you’ll start feeling and seeing healthier results.Up until now, we set the basis for you to start working on your skin health, but let’s go the distance and talk about specific skincare actions you can take to make sure you’ll get your desired results on a long term basis.
3. Cleanse, tone & moisturize your face at least once a day.Wash your face morning and night to ensure your skin & pores stay free of dirt, grime, and bacteria. To make sure you remove any remaining oil and debris left behind by the cleanser is wiped out. You should also use a proper, gentle toner for your skin. This process will help soothe, nourish, and hydrate the skin while restoring its pH balance. Keep in mind that no matter what your skin type, maintaining a healthy moisture balance is extremely important for you to avoid dry skin. By keeping skin cells performing optimally, moisture increases your chances of preventing fine lines and wrinkles, keeping your skin balanced and nourished.
4. Exfoliate once per week & add regular facials to your routine.To avoid feeling dry and flaky, we encourage you to schedule a nice exfoliation session every week. Exfoliation is the removal of dry/dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and is one of the most critical aspects of your home skincare routine for face and body. Exfoliation not only helps many skin problems, but it also increases blood circulation, which in turn helps you to achieve healthy and glowing skin. But don’t forget! Over-exfoliating your skin, or using abrasive products might cause cracks in the skin barrier that lead to more loss of hydration and inflammation. A PRP facial (popularly referred to as Vampire Facial) or microneedling will guarantee you get increased circulation and cell turnover, improving your skin plumpness and reducing the size of skin pores.
5.Consider Botox & fillers to enhance your natural beauty.
Neuromodulators -like FDA-approved Botox- are used to relax muscles in the face. Common areas are across your forehead, between eyebrows, and even around your eyes! Cosmetic procedures are used to reduce dynamic facial wrinkles -these are the wrinkles that appear when you make an expression, such as squinting, laughing, or frowning. When used properly by an expert who can assess your personal skin needs, you’ll regain your naturally youthful, healthy look and feel.
