Fashion trends come and go, but what is something that will never go out of style? Healthy, glowing skin. Check out our top secrets for beautiful skin.  

1. Manage Your Stress

The world is stressful; we get it. There is a lot to juggle, from work to school and family. But how can all that stress impact your skin? Stress causes your brain to make more cortisol, a hormone that can stimulate increased oil production. The extra oil can trigger acne and hormone imbalance from elevated cortisol levels. 

Essential oil blends do wonders for relieving stress. Unwinding next to a diffuser can melt away worries, bring clarity, and freshen up your space. 

2. Put Good In, Get Good Out

Diet plays a massive role in overall health. The vitamins and minerals from fruits and vegetables not only make you feel good, but they make you look good too. Healthy skin needs antioxidants commonly found in plants like blueberries, spinach, and nuts. Try to add these foods to your diet through meals, snacks, or even desserts. 

3. Stay Hydrated

Water is vital for your overall health as well as your skin. All of the cells in our body need water to function, and when they are not getting enough water, we can often see some symptoms. Dehydration is thought to cause excess oil production, a significant source of acne.

4. Get to Know Your Skin

Everyone’s skin has different characteristics and, therefore, different needs. Some people have dryness, while others are more oily. Age can be an influential factor as well. We recommend putting a good deal of effort into visiting a skin clinic and learning about your skin so that you can best address any issues that arise. It will allow you to find products specifically designed for your needs. 

5. Use High-Quality Products

Just like the foods we eat, the products we use influence the appearance of our skin. Do your research and choose products that will help you. Often, the flashy and cutesy items are ineffective or even problematic. Remember, high quality does not always mean expensive. Instead of looking at the price tag first, check to ensure dermatologists recommend the product. 

6. Keep It Simple

There are seemingly endless products on the market. There is no shortage of products promising to give you glowing skin, from face masks to eye creams and everything in between. Our advice? Start with the basics. Get a solid foundational routine and build from there. That way, you can figure out which products help and which ones are just for show. 

Your skin type will determine the kinds of products you need, but most people use at least a cleanser and moisturizer with SPF.

7. Use Sunscreen (even when it’s cloudy!)

Catching rays are great for making vitamin D, but over-exposure can cause damage and even lead to skin cancer. Wrinkles, sun spots, and other premature aging symptoms are all signs of too much sunlight. Luckily, SPF is great at preventing the damaging effects of the sun. We recommend using a product with at least SPF 15 every day, regardless of the weather. Remember, you don’t have to burn to cause harm to the skin. Daily exposure is enough. 

To Wrap It All Up

The importance of taking care of your skin goes beyond looking good in pictures. After all, it is the largest organ in the body. From improving mental health to preventing cancer, the benefits of proper skincare are essential for a healthy life.
