The hustle and bustle of working 9-5, being social and generally having a life can take its toll on your body, in particular, it can affect the health of your skin. It may feel like having vibrant skin is not compatible with having a vibrant life, but that’s far from true. Boosting your skincare routine is as easy as counting to five.
Eat Your Greens
Just like mum said. A diet rich in fresh produce is key to healthy glowing skin. Superfoods like avocado and broccoli are rich in essential vitamins and minerals like zinc, and the latter also contains lutein. This natural carotenoid works to protect your skin from oxidative damage, preventing your skin from becoming dry and wrinkled.
Choosing the Right Collagen Cream
Collagen can help support lively looking skin, but funnily enough, it can’t be absorbed by your skin on its own. So, when choosing the cream that’s right for you, make sure you choose one that contains micro amino acids that helps the collagen get deeper into your dermal layers. This way you will look fresh-faced all day.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), aka apple cyder to some, is an entirely natural way to help revitalise your skin. A potent antibacterial and anti-fungal substance, washing your face with ACV can help fight acne. It also contains alpha hydroxy acids that will remove dead skin cells, leaving you with a rejuvenated new look.
Drinking plenty of water creates a better environment in your dermal layers for collagen and elastin, a pliable protein in your skin, to exist. The water doesn’t stop at what you drink. Look for water-based hair care products as well. The chemicals in what you spray or rinse through our hair can be very damaging to your skin; water-based options can significantly reduce this damage.
Vitamin C is critical to maintaining great skin. It is key to producing collagen in your dermal layers, plus it’s rich in free radicals and antioxidants that help refresh and heal dry and damaged skin.
