Hack Your Way To Healthy Skin In 5 Simple Steps
Let’s face it, no one has time for daily facials. Our lives are way too packed to spend hours a day preening, cleansing and scrubbing, but the last thing we want is for wrinkles and greasy pores to take over.
Luckily, we’ve got just the fix. Say goodbye to lengthy skin routines and hello healthy skin with these top hacks:
Changing your bed is one of the biggest chores and we know how tempting it is to put it off but have you ever thought about the amount of dirt, dead skin and sweat that collects on your pillowcase? Do your face a favour and change your pillowcases every week. And if you really want to step it up a notch, invest in a silk pillowcase; it won’t steal your night-time facial products as cotton cases do!
Get your fats on
Not all fats are bad fats, in fact your body and skin need a healthy daily dose of good fats in order to be radiant. So eat those avocados, cook in extra virgin olive oil, add coconut oil to your smoothie. Just be sure to stay away from processed fats as they’ll make you puffy and remove that radiant shine.
Your skin is roughly 64% water but it’s not the only organ in your body that uses it, so the less water you drink, the more it has to fight for its share. So do your skin a favour and drink those 2 litres of water every day so there’s plenty to go around.
No, we’re not talking about the Slim variety here, we’re talking about keeping your skin sun-safe by applying sunscreen every day, whether it is sunny or not, wear a hat to keep your face protected and find some shade. Sunshine, while great for topping up our vitamin D stores, really damages your skin, so stay looking young and stay out of the sun.
While you’ve taken care of your skin from the inside, you shouldn’t forget about it from the outside. Moisturising your skin every day is super important as it helps lock in moisture keeping your skin looking incredible. If you’re on the market for a new moisturiser, why not give our facial moisturiser a go? (Don’t forget you can get incredible multibuy deals too!)
So, there you have it. Five quick, easy and simple steps to help your skin look awesome all year round and luckily, none of these should take up too much of your time.
