Why It’s Easier to Succeed With Skincare Than You Might Think

When you think about Skincare, the first thing that comes to your mind is “clear.” No matter how old you are, skin-related issues are quite common. So, if you are in pursuit of glowing, healthy, clear skin, then read on.

Based on expert research, here is a list full of useful tips for you.

Be mindful of how much time you spend in the Sun

Sunscreen can help you protect from direct sunlight, but if you are looking for a more natural way of taking care of your skin, the fix is simple. Limit your time in the sun. In case you don’t know, 90 percent of your skin aging is caused by the sun. And if you believe it is a high percentage, think again before going out in the peak hours of the day.

Always make sure you take extra care of the skin around your eyes and on your forehead. Applying sunscreen and other quality skincare products, which can help you from having those untimely wrinkles.

Silk Satin pillow, your new best friend

If you want wrinkle-free skin, you may have to take some precautions while you are fast asleep. Make sure you are using a smooth pillow cover as your pillowcase. A side sleeper, can get wrinkles on face, without even knowing it.

However, if you sleep on a silk pillowcase, the fabric is smooth on your skin, lowering any chances of you getting wrinkles in your sleep.   

Drink More Water

Water is the ultimate gift of nature. While water does not directly improve the quality of your skin, it helps other organs of your body to function better.

It helps your kidney to clear toxins more efficiently from your body. It reduces the risk of skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

A quick tip: How do you know if you are drinking enough water? Check the color of your pee, the darker the color of your pee the more water your body needs.

Avoid touching your face at all cost

No matter how tempted you are to squeeze that ugly looking pimple on your face, don’t do it! Squeezing a pimple on your face can create long-lasting effects on your skin. Besides that you need to make sure you don’t rub or scratch your face, friction caused by rubbing your face can push the bacteria back into the pores of your skin.

Keep a close check on your stress levels

Stress is the biggest enemy of that radiant skin you always dream of. Whenever you are stressed out, your body releases a hormone called Cortisol. This hormone lets your body know if you are in a dangerous situation. However, if you are constantly stressing about something, there will be a huge increase in the levels of Cortisol, which is very bad for your skin.

Increased levels of Cortisol can kill the glow on your face by decreasing your skin’s ability to maintain moisture and encouraging the overproduction of oils.

These are the most common signs of you have high-stress levels

  • Dry Skin
  • Dull grey look
  • Lack of moisture on your skin
  • Acne
  • Premature wrinkles
  • Line development
  • Redness and inflammation
  • Skin conditions like rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis.

Keep an eye on these symptoms and consult a doctor or dermatologist, if needed.

Sleep on it

A good night’s sleep can do wonders for your skin. Make sure you are getting at least 8 hours of sleep at night. When you sleep your body releases a hormone called Melatonin. This is the good stuff your skin and body need to get free from lines, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. It also helps in decreasing the stress hormone Cortisol.

Another important substance your body produces while you are in deep sleep is collagen, which makes your face look fresh and wrinkles free.

Work out

Exercise is great for your body, but it can do wonders for your skin. When you work out, your blood circulates all over your body, which carries oxygen and nutrients to all our cells.

You must have noticed the instant glow on your face, which you get after a good workout session. It also helps our skin to repair itself more effectively and efficiently.

Conclusion

Your skin is the most important feature of your personality. This is why you need to take some extra care of it. However, many of us ignore the importance of having a healthy skin. To have clean and radiant skin, always be aware of your surroundings and keep a close eye on your stress levels.
