Healthy Skin: Healthy Habits for healthy skin

Everybody wants that radiant healthy glow. Help your skin help you!

The power of habit. You need to establish a routine that works for you. It takes a bit of effort, but on average, it takes 21 days to develop a habit. Starting it up takes a bit of effort, but a little everyday will go a long way!

  • Eat clean. This sounds like a no-brainer, but you will be impressed by the impact that a healthy diet will have on your skin. Exchange your afternoon snack for a fruit high in fiber to keep you satisfied for longer, and vitamins to give you that health factor that your bar of chocolate won’t! Check out foods that feed your skin for a list of foods high in Vitamin A and Vitamin C. After all, you are what you eat!
  • Sleep well. Exercise regularly. No time for a workout? All it takes is 20 min! Wake up just 20 min earlier, get a jump rope, download a 20min workout on YouTube or dance around in your room – EVERYTHING helps! Exercise stimulates better circulation helping you get rid of bad toxins and promote healthier and more vibrant skin. Stress can trigger breakouts but regular exercise and adequate sleep will keep those stress levels at bay, boost your mood and energy levels and keep your body and mind supple and healthy.

  • Remove your makeup before going to bed. Whatever you do, this is not one to skip! Makeup residues clog your pores, which can result in puffiness around the eyes and congestion of the skin. That means breakouts and pimples. Easy fix - keep a pack of makeup removal wipes by your bedside and wipe it all off before heading to sleep. Simple, easy, effective.
  • Remove makeup before exercise. This one is one we often skip. The point is to let the perspiration escape through your pores, taking those toxins and impurities out rather than letting the makeup clog your skin and causing pimples. Check out our tips on how to best remove make-up
