Keep yourself hydrated
Making sure you drink water and stay hydrated is important for your whole body, however, what is the largest organ in the body? The skin! Your cells are made up of water and need it to stay functional, hydrated, and not to dry out. Drinking half your body weight in water is suggested in order to keep your body and skin healthy. People report having lighter skin and feeling more hydrated, which can also slow down the aging process.
Whether the sky is cloudy or perfectly clear, the sun’s rays always penetrate your skin and have harmful properties. Skin cancer is currently said to be the most common in America. Applying an SPF all year round protects your skin, but above all it decreases the risk of aging and slows down this aging process. The sun is known to cause early wrinkles, which is exactly what we want to avoid!
You are what you eat, in this case, what you eat can affect the appearance and composition of your skin. Many people who consume a lot of sugar and refined carbohydrates report having more pimples and bad skin. This is because it causes cortisol levels to increase and the sugars stick to your collagen, weakening it. In order to have fresh, healthy skin, you need to eat healthy fats, which are found in fish and nuts. Eating fruits and vegetables is just as important for your daily health as it is for your skin.
We thought exercise and sweating would have a negative effect on the skin, but it’s actually beneficial. Exercise increases your blood flow and keeps your cells fresh and functioning. By increasing blood flow, it quickly removes waste and flushes free radicals from your skin. It is important to keep your skin clean before and after so that the sweat does not stay on for too long but exercise, in fact, helps with the appearance and processes of your skin.
Lack of sleep has been proven to cause hyperpigmentation which leads to dark puffy circles under those beautiful eyes. Making sure you get enough rest and sleep repairs your cells, allows them to thrive and therefore is a process of caring for your skin. Sleep is important for the healthy functioning of your whole body and mind, so it’s only natural that skin is on the list as well.
