How to look after your skin inside & out
When it comes to looking after your skin & body, theres a lot to be said for a healthy lifestyle; eating well, sleeping well, drinking enough water, & getting enough vitamins ...
But, there are a lot of things you can do on the outside which is proven to help promote healthy looking skin.
Cleansing & Exfoliating your skin is one of the most essential steps to keeping your skin looking younger, not only by removing impurities, but by helping stimulate cell regeneration. Skin is left smooth on the surface, it's less prone to residue build up (which causes blemishes), and promotes new skin to regenerate faster. Cleansing, by the form of a gel or micelle water should be at least morning and night, (or more after exercise or exposure to oil/ pollution). Exfoliating should be 2-3 times per week.
There are so many exfoliating products out there, bead exfoliators are better for sensitive skin and salts are harsher and more useful for the body rather than face. There are also exfoliating tools & technology which can be used with your normal cleansers. This is the approach I tend to personally use as I have certain cleansers which work well for my skin.
Toners are a stronger version of cleansing, removing even more impurities & makeup that sometimes basic soaps and cleansers don't remove. For acne prone skin, this is a good option for deep cleansing. Toners then tighten the pores, making the skin appear smoother and difficult for dirt to penetrate back in.
Hydrating the skin after this deep cleansing process is essential for keeping the skin soft and providing it protection from ageing.
Hydrating serums, often contain ingredients you may have heard like Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is popular for its use in lip fillers, its naturally produced in the body and naturally broken down by the body - as we age its broken down at a quicker rate. HA within hydrating serums are used to hold water content, which plumps up and replenishes water in our skin cells. HA is often sold with Vitamin C as it helps the skin absorb it better. HA is the key to flawless and hydrated skin. Supplements can also help to restore the amount of it in our body.
Moisterisers, however, act as a barrier on the skins surface to reduce moisture loss. That way it protects the skin and is a good base for makeup.
