Your skin is the foundation of your whole look – literally! Which makes some easy skin TLC a big priority. That’s why we’ve put together some skin saving remedies that will solve all your skin woes.
Your skin will be with you for life and the last thing anyone wants is blotchy and pigmented skin, or worse still, the first tell-tale signs of wrinkles or skin that isn’t as plump and dewy as it should be. A number of factors can cause skin damage, but usually it’s not irreparable. From too much time in the sun to plummeting temperatures and not washing off makeup at night – some skin TLC can help reverse the damage to your skin before it’s too late.
Feed your face
Certain foods combined with a healthy balanced diet will work wonders for your complexion and ensuring your skin has an irresistible and vibrant glow.
Foods rich in vitamin C protect your cells from breaking down, resulting in younger looking skin and act as a natural combatant against the appearance of fine lines. Although traditionally oranges are renowned for being rich in vitamin C, strawberries are actually more of a skin super food. Strawberries have more anti-ageing vitamin C than both oranges and grapefruit.
Antioxidant stars blueberries, raspberries, and green tea also all help boost your skins natural vibrancy.
Drinking plenty of water keeps your skin fresh and hydrated, but liquids alone aren’t going to cut it. You can also boost the natural moisture in your skin with toners, boosters, and masks. Ensuring you keep your skins moisture levels up will make your skin maintain the extra plumpness and dewiness in your skin.
Holding on to dead, dull skin isn’t going to do you any favours – that stuff’s got to come off! A combination of skin brightening lactic acid and hydroxy acid exfoliant two to three times per week will help make your skin the picture of health. A daily dose of rice bran powder and phytic acid microfoliant skin polisher will then be the icing on the cake.
Slip, slop, slap
Many of us take the health of our skin for granted and get blinded by the chance of being naturally sun-kissed. Well, there’s some fantastic self-tanning lotions available on the market, including tinted moisturisers and non comedogenic products (so your skin won’t breakout), that are just as good as the real thing, minus the associated risks. That said sun protection is a must all year round. SPF+ moisturisers should be worn even when its cold and there’s plenty of cloud cover. When it’s hot and sunny out, always wear sunscreen, not wearing it will quicken your skins aging and cause permanent damage. Excessive sun exposure will also make your skin dry out in the short term.
Our skin is exposed to the elements everyday and as such we need to give it a little extra care and attention. These easy skin TLC tips will work wonders and prove to be your skins true salvation in both the long and short term.
