As your largest organ, there’s a lot that goes behind the maintenance of your skin. External factors, along with internal ones, play a significant role in your overall skin’s health, appearance and texture.
In the pursuit of healthy, radiant skin, we’ve gathered a few beauty tips that your skin is guaranteed to appreciate and love.
1. Eatings food rich in antioxidants
The more colourful, the better. Beautiful glowing skin starts with how we eat, which is why when we pack our diet with vibrant foods rich in antioxidants, your body shows its appreciation.
Antioxidants such as vitamin A, C, B3 and lycopene works to fight free radicals, promote collagen production to improve skin tone and texture, strengthen the skin barrier and more.
These antioxidants are commonly found in foods such as salmon, leafy green vegetables and orange fruits.
It was also found that adding probiotics to your diet help with preventing and treating skin conditions like acne, eczema and skin damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) light.
2. Get sufficient sleep
Like Sleeping Beauty, we all need our beauty sleep. When you drift off to dreamland, your body works hard to repair and renew itself – including the skin.
Collagen production and increased blood flow are amongst the many things that occur during your sleep, helping to reduce sun spots and wrinkles while repairing UV damage.
Note that clocking the minimum hours is not enough, you need to have quality sleep as well. Research has shown that poor sleep quality can compromise skin barrier function and contribute to increased signs of skin ageing.
3. Exercise regularly
By increasing blood flow, regular exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. Besides, blood flow also helps to carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells.
4. Shun alcohol
Alcohol is one of the worst, most aggressive compounds to destroy your skin.
Alcohol dehydrates our bodies, including the skin. Drinking excessively may lead to dry skin and premature ageing.
Moreover, alcohol inflames the tissue, and systemic inflammation to the skin creates a histamine reaction. Whilst a tinge of redness is nothing to worry about, it’ll eventually develop into a prominent facial redness if you continue drinking over a period of time.
5. Keep your skin microbiome balanced
A healthy, balanced skin microbiome is essential to maintaining healthy, balanced skin. Our skin is home to millions of bacteria, fungi and viruses that compose the skin microbiota.
These microscopic bacteria possess essential roles in protection against pathogens, staving off infection, fighting against free radicals and keeping the skin hydrated and supple.
Keep yours in check by using products that are formulated to be gentle to the skin. Avoid those that can strip away the good bacteria and essential oils that make up the skin microbiome.
Alternatively, you can use products that give your skin microbiome a boost!
6. Get regular laser hair removal treatments
