These are 10 simple and effective tips to change your skin and give you that healthy, clear complexion that you have always craved.
Spend money on Good Skincare. You get what you pay for, and if you want results you need good quality, active products.
Exfoliate only once or twice per week. Exfoliation is essential for healthy skin and to promote cell turnover but any more often can strip the skin of it’s natural oils and unbalance the acid mantle.
Masks are a great way to boost skincare, give skin a pick me up and treat just about any skin concern. Use after exfoliating once a week or as often as you like. I use a different mask almost every day!
Cleanse your skin EVERY night. It’s never too late and you are never too tired to cleanse properly.
Exercise is the best way to de-stress. When you are under stress it severely impacts on your skin causing you to breakout, look sallow and depleted and dark circles under the eyes are more prevalent. Exercise is key to breaking this cycle.
Keep It Simple. Don’t overdo it with products, find something that works for you and stick to it. This doesn’t mean don’t try new things but don’t overload the skin all at once.
Change with the seasons. In winter skin can become dry and dull so exfoliating weekly is essential, also ensuring your skin gets the right nutrients. Introduce oil’s and use products rich in EFA’s. In summer opt for a gel cleanser to balance excess sebum, along with a light-weight moisturiser.
Improve your Nutritional Intake. Feed your skin from the inside, ensure you get a lot of omega’s and vitamins. Start your day with a cup of warm water with lemon to increase your metabolism and detoxify. Cut out sugar, sugar destroys collagen.
Massage your skin. Increase blood and lymph circulation and detoxify the skin. Firm and tone the muscles in the face and generally improve the appearance of skin, giving it a healthy glow. I like to massage while cleansing, spend a good 3-4 minutes daily doing so.
Water is the best skincare product. Drink at least 2 litres per day. If you are exercising, in a hot environment or sweating excessively then increase this amount.
