Tips for a healthier, younger looking skin

Vibrant skin on your face is not only a sign of good health but is also incredibly important to make you look more attractive.

Achieving glowing and vibrant skin is everyone’s goal to looking and feeling better but this is easier said than done.

Whatever is going on inside your body, such as stress, emotional distress, bad diet or illness, will ultimately manifest itself on your face. Prolonged issues with your body could be unhealthy in the long run.

So, how do we start to improve the skin on our face? What are the steps involved? How long does it take? And will the results be permanent?

Here’s our list of the top 7 tips to make your face look healthier and cleaner

1) Take time to find the best products

In today’s day and age, getting information about what you want to buy is not only simple but also remarkably quick. Everything you need to know is just a click away. Do your research while looking for skin care products and ideally consult an expert such as a dermatologist or aesthetician for recommendations on the products you need to use.

5) Gently clean your skin

Gone are the days when a bar of mainstream soap was all you needed to keep yourself clean. In fact, a lot of people have stopped applying soap due to the harmful pH concentrations in most of them. Use a gentle cleanser for cleaning out the pores of your face.

2) Exfoliate once per week

Exfoliation is the process of removing the layer of dead skin present on the top most part of your skin. Though it is extremely important to exfoliate your skin you cannot do this too often. Stick to a set regime of exfoliating. Once per week should be more than enough especially if you haven’t done it so far.

3) Wash your hands

This tip is one of the most crucial but also most commonly overlooked. Your hands come into contact with an incredibly large number of surfaces and germs throughout the day. You are also prone to touching your face all the time. So your best bet is to either wash your hands regularly or break the habit of touching your face so frequently.

4) Eat healthier

No other piece of advice will help you as much as this one. You must remember, the issues on your face and skin are only an outward manifestation of what’s going on inside you. If you suffer from prolonged stress or bad dietary habits make efforts to change these right away. Eat more greens and vegetables to improve your digestion and those added nutrients will make your skin glow in a short while.

6) Moisturize

First of all, you’ll want to start with a product that really moisturizes. And hydration starts with ingredients known as humectants. “Humectants are important for longer lasting moisturization,” explains dermatologist  Dr. Craig Kraffert. “Humectants to look for include glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and propylene glycol.” Check the ingredients list before you buy any moisturizer — face or body — and make sure it contains at least one humectant.

7) Use eye cream regardless of what age you are

Eye cream isn’t only for people looking to appear younger. You are susceptible to bags under your eyes after a few long nights or lack of sleep. Also some people just tend to ignore the part of their face right below their eyes till it’s too late and they start noticing wrinkles when they’re much older. So start using eye cream as soon as possible.

Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin — and a healthy state of mind — take steps to manage your stress. Get enough sleep, set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. The results might be more dramatic than you expect.

Is Retinol Cream a good choice for your skin?

Retinol is a form of Vitamin A, one of the best anti-aging ingredients available. Since the first retinol hit the market in 1971, quickly become known as a cure-all for all skin types; from aging to acne and everything in between.

Fun fact: Retinol was first branded as an acne-fighting product.  It wasn’t until they realized the anti-aging qualities it had, too, that it was rebranded for that purpose.

Retinol Benefits

  • Proven to boost collagen production, reducing wrinkles and preventing fine lines
  • Speed cell turnover, evening out discoloration and brightening skin tone
  • Unclog pores, making them look smaller and reducing acne
  • Improve skin texture, pigmentation and tone

When used properly, Retinol can do wonders for your skin!

When to use it and when to avoid it

Because Retinol encourages skin cell turnover, this new skin is delicate and should not be exposed to the sun. It’s important to know that retinol rapidly break down when exposed to the sun, and it might have the opposite effect for your skin.

Something else to consider is that Retinol, like all vitamin A derivatives, is NOT recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The bottom line is that retinol is a useful and proven ingredient in its proper place – night time products. If you would like to give it a try, you can find it here Retinol Cream

Firms and Tones – When your skin is supple and hydrated, it plumps up to appear firmer, less saggy, and more toned.
