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. There are some basic steps you can take in the morning and before bedtime that will help you start moving towards more 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 routine
Having a strong plan for simple and achievable wholesome habits is the crucial secret sauce to maintaining healthy, smooth & radiant skin. Drinking the proper amount of water will help you combat a variety of skin issues. Including foods rich in antioxidants – dark leafy greens, blueberries, red and orange fruits, and vegetables, etc.- will neutralize free radicals, decreasing inflammation and improving skin tone. Do your best to design a delicious meal plan that provides you with all the nutrients and antioxidants possible, and keep a nice cold bottle of water by your side to make sure you drink plenty all day. Believe us; your body will thank you far beyond glowy skin.
2. Exercise regularly & sleep a proper amount of time
We are not just talking about two vital aspects to your physical health and emotional well-being, but essential practices you should add to your daily schedule to promote skin cell rejuvenation. Did you know working out tones the skin, improves circulation and increases oxygen? Plus, while you sleep, your body re-balances & recovers moisture. Combine mindful activity & deep, relaxing rest, and you’ll start feeling great and seeing healthier skin.
Up until now, we created a plan for you to start working on your skin health. Now let’s talk about specific skincare actions you can take for your desired results over the long term.
3. Cleanse, tone & moisturize your face at least once a day
Cleanse your face morning and night to ensure your pores stay free of dirt, grime, and bacteria. Use a toner appropriate for your skin type to remove any remaining oil and debris left behind. 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, moisturizing 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 dry and flaky skin, we encourage you to exfoliate at home once a week. Exfoliation is the removal of dry/dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and is a critical step in your skincare routine for face and body. Exfoliation increases circulation which helps you 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 professional facial will guarantee you get an in-depth while improving your skin plumpness and reducing the size of pores.
5. Consider Botox to enhance your natural beauty
Botox relaxes the muscles across your forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your eyes! This FDA-approved cosmetic procedure reduces dynamic facial wrinkles or those that appear when you make an expression, such as squinting, laughing or frowning. When used properly by an expert who assessed your personal skin needs, you’ll regain your natural elasticity & glow, making you look and feel youthful & healthy.
