In this blog post, we’re going to dive in on the topic of skin care. Having healthy skin generally makes your self-confidence improve. We all know the feeling of having a blemish, rash, or other condition making us self-conscious of our bodies. One of our favorite products this month, Emuaid, works wonders on treating different skin conditions. Read on to discover other tips on maintaining healthy skin, leading to a more confident you!
Change your Diet
If you’re dealing with acne or bumpy skin, try switching up what you eat. If you read our probiotics blog post, you should know that changing your diet to include more probiotics helps balance your gut. When your gut is balanced and happy, inflammation, redness, and eczema start to clear up. Sometimes it isn’t about what goes on your skin, it’s about what you’re putting in your body. For example, foods high in antioxidants and vitamins, like berries and vegetables, protect your skin against damaging free radicals.
Stick to a Bedtime Routine
Did you know not getting the proper amount of sleep causes increased skin aging? Creating a routine helps to make sure you’re getting the 7-9 hours of sleep your body needs to recover. The purpose of sleep is to make sure your body is recovering from the stress of the day. So snuggle up and get your beauty sleep.
Cleanse and Moisturize
Another way to improve your skin is to use a gentle daily cleanser. Make sure you use a cleanser that is meant for the face as facial skin is very delicate and requires more care. For the body, try exfoliating scrubs and moisturizing body washes. When you execute your skin care routine, don’t forget to bring the products down your neck. You don’t want a young looking face and an aged neck.
Protect your Skin
Protecting your skin has more steps than just putting on SPF. There are many factors like air pollution, blue light damage, and sun exposure. Putting on SPF doesn’t protect from pollution and washing your skin doesn’t protect from UV rays. The purpose of skin is to act as a natural barrier to protect your body. To save yourself exposure to pollution, wash your face with a gentle cleanser that washes off harmful molecules, but doesn’t strip away your natural oils. Always make sure you are wearing SPF, even when it’s cloudy. UV rays can come in contact with your skin in the shade and through windows. Try finding lotions with built-in SPF protection, so you don’t need to add another step to your routine.
Many people swear by essential oils to help with different ailments. There are different ways to use essential oils. You can simply roll it on, diffuse it, add it to drinks, and bathe in it. If you are applying it directly to your skin, make sure you use a carrier oil, like avocado oil, to reduce possible irritation. If you’re new to essential oils, check out this article on different oil combinations to use for your skin type.
