How do you prevent premature ageing, you ask?
Having radiant skin isn't just about what you put on your face; it's a holistic approach that includes a healthy lifestyle and mindset.
If you're feeling tired and sluggish, chances are you'll show it in your skin. Here are some quick ways you can start shedding years off your 'age' just by keeping healthy, and using a simple, effective skin-care system.
- Drink lots of water
- Get enough sleep
- Get enough iron and zinc
- Exercise for 20min a day
- Stay positive
- Avoid foods that are high in sugar and sodium
- Avoid processed foods; many preservatives have been show to effect hormones which in turn effect the health of your skin
A good skin care regime doesn't require expensive or invasive treatments. All you need is 4 minutes of your day to keep skin in check! Remember that skin changes throughout the year so don't be too worried if your skin is flaky one day and oily the next, that's normal!
Why chemical Free? A lot of products on the market might be spruiked by glamorous models with perfect 'digitised' skin, but in truth they are full of harsh chemicals and fragrances that can do more harm to the skin than good. Many well known skin care brands use chemicals that can strip the epidermis of natural oils and manipulate the skin's PH balance causing irritation and sensitivity after use. So, stick to natural, cruelty free products, please!
Here's all you need to do in your daily skin work out:
- Cleanse daily
- Tone after cleansing
- Moisturise day and night
- Exfoliate & Use a Mask at least once a week, more if skin is dry
