How to get ‘perfect’ skin is a question that many people want to know the answer to. The answer is not simple. Every person has different skin, different skin needs, as well as what ‘perfect skin’ even means. It’s hard to find anyone who truly has ‘perfect’ skin all year round, but there are certain habits that those with beautiful skin stick to, and we are here to share them with you…
1. Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse!
Removing your make up, and using a proper cleansing routine before bed is essential for the start of beautiful skin. Cleansing removes all of the dirt and pollution that has built up on your face throughout the day.
2. Increase your Skin’s Absorbency
What does this mean exactly? As you put on your moisturizer, you want your skin to be able to soak up as much of it as possible so that it can sink in and work its magic. If your skin isn’t absorbing your products well, then that’s money wasted on all those serums and moisturizers! To increase your skins absorbency, you need get rid of all the dead skin on the surface first. You can do this by exfoliating a couple of times a week or better yet, you can use a device such as the Glo Me microdermabrasion tool to thoroughly exfoliate the face and leave a clear and glowing complexion behind. The Glo Me will help make-up to go on more smoothly and products to sink deeper into the skin – win win!
3. Wear Sunscreen Every day!
This is something we cannot repeat enough! if you want your skin to not only look amazing now, but also in the future, then investing in a good (and high) SPF sunscreen is the number 1 thing you should be doing! The sunscreen should be at least SPF 30 if you want to reduce the aging of your skin (and reduce the chance of skin cancer!).
4. Pay Attention to Your Thin Skin
‘What is my thin skin?’ we hear you ask. Your thin skin is the delicate skin that surrounds your eyes, and is also located on the décolleté area (neck and chest) as well as the backs of the hands. These areas do not have oil glands, which mean that they dry out quicker but are also the first areas to show signs of aging. Make sure to treat these areas the same way you treat your face (cleanse, moisturize etc.). The TriPollar STOP anti-wrinkle device can also be used on these areas to increase collagen production, preventing and treating these delicate areas for wrinkles.
5. You Are What Your Eat
Many Doctors claim that they can actually judge a person’s diet purely by looking at their skin! What this translates to, is clearly, the healthier you eat, the better your skin will look – simple. Cookies, cakes, pastries to name a few, are all high glycemic foods. Not good if you are looking for wrinkle and spot free skin. Try and incorporate foods high in omega fatty acids, like salmon and nuts to maintain a strong skin barrier. Foods rich in antioxidants such as berries are also great skin foods!
Changing your routine and lifestyle to these key steps can be the push you need to get the skin of your dreams. Not only that, but sunscreen protection and eating the right foods will be great not just for your skin but also for your overall health in general!
Happy skin is a happier you.
