Establish a Healthy Diet
Try to incorporate foods that are high in Vitamin C such as citrus, spinach and peppers. You should also try to incorporate more protein such as eggs, lean meat, fish, nuts and beans. Avoiding processed foods & sugars will also help brighten and clear up your complexion. We love getting in skin-loving ingredients in a daily smoothie- try out THIS: Glowing Skin Smoothie Recipe.
Use Natural Ingredients
Make sure your skincare products contain natural ingredients and say no to harmful chemicals!
Opt for products that contain plant-based ingredients like aloe vera & hyaluronic acid that can help with fine lines, wrinkles, dryness. Other all-star ingredients we love include: Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera & Organic Rosehip Oil.
Avoid products that contain harmful preservatives & additives like Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfates & Synthetic Fragrance.
Drink Plenty of Water
Sounds simple enough right? Make sure you’re drinking the recommended 8 glasses a day. Add fruits (like strawberries or lemon) or herbs (like mint or rosemary) to spice up your water and add some extra nutrients. So simple yet it goes a long way!
Cleanse Your Face
Make sure you’re cleansing your face properly. Whenever you wash your face, take an entire minute to massage the cleanser into your skin. This way, your skin can benefit from the ingredients and you are ensuring that all traces of the day (SPF, makeup, etc.) are removed.
That’s right, you can hit two resolutions in one! Working out will get blood pumping nutrients to all the right places while removing toxins from your body which all leads to clear skin.
These tips are not only great for your skin, but it can also lead to establishing a healthy lifestyle. We wish you a happy and healthy 2020!
