There’s about 5 million websites, books and TV shows explaining how to achieve that perfect flawless skin we all have to have. So I have come up with 5 top tips for truly getting that healthy, glowing, radiant skin you have always wanted.
1. Drink 2 litres of water a day
Drinking water hydrates the skin as well as getting rid of toxins from our body that build up and can cause illness. ”Water is a vital part of the body’s overall functioning systems”. Some of these systems include digestion, absorption, circulation, and excretion. So if you can imagine your body without water, it would cause your skin to become dry, flaky, and itchy, as well as toxin build up with no water flushing out your liver.
2. Only use good quality products on your skin
It is extremely important to use good skin care. Most of the products on the beauty and hair self at the supermarket contain artificial colours, stabilisers, emulsifiers, and other chemicals. This can cause a layer to form on your skin making it harder for it to breathe. In my personal experience, I used a supermarket brand cleanser that claimed to be sensitive to my skin, instead I could feel it become dry and losing its softness. Since joining RY.com.au then I was surrounded in all the best hair and skin products on the market. I started using ALPHA-H balancing cleanser and in days my skin appeared cleaner, fresher and overall just left like I had new skin.
3. Eat a healthy diet
If you eat good quality healthy food, it will help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and protein. The less processed and fresher your food is, the better the food is for you.
TIP: Food such as blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli and papaya, contain natural collagen that strengthens the capillaries that feed your skin.
4. Protect your skin from the UV rays
This could the most vital part of taking care of your skin, a lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, freckles, age spots, and rough and dry skin. But most concerning is skin cancer Australia has one of the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. ‘Prevention is the key’.
– Use sunscreen whenever you are in the sun, apply 30 minutes before going out doors.
– Wear protective clothing, if you know you are going to be in the sun for a long period of time make sure you wear clothing that is going to cover your arms, face and legs.
– Avoid the sun between 10.00am and 4.00pm this is when the UV rays are the worst.
5. Manage your stress levels
Unmanageable stress levels can cause your skin to become more sensitive, trigger acne break-outs and other skin problems. Take time to relax whenever you can, whether it’s even a few minutes to take a short walk. Or even join a yoga class. Trust me your skin and your entire body will thank you for it.
