6 WAYS TO GET BETTER SKIN
Skin is the largest organ you have, and your skin is essential to your general health. If you take care of it, it can help take care of you. As a brand who sells makeup, it’s important for us to have a good base for our complexion. It’s true that makeup is able to cover your flaws, but textures DON’T LIE!
With the rave of skincare products and how people are paying more attention to their skin; it’s important to realise that having a skincare routine is not the only thing that matters, but to have a great quality of lifestyle is very important. Here are 6 ways to help you achieve those baby skin goals!
1. Consider Your Drinking Water Routine
Drinking an adequate amount of water daily is important for overall good health. Water aids in digestion, circulation and absorption and even rids the body and skin of toxins. Increasing your water intake will have a positive impact on your overall skin health - since all your skin contains 64% of water.
From preventing sagging skin, to maintaining a good pH Balance. From improving elasticity, to reducing wrinkles. Water can do amazing things for your skin and for your overall health.
Always make sure you are drinking at least six glasses a day to stay hydrated and healthy.
2. Drink Green Tea
Yes, the classic drink of Asia, has long been celebrated for its profound health benefits. Green tea might be just as good for your outsides as your inside. The same health benefits that make the drink better for your health also means that there are benefits of tea for skin.
If your complexion is red or blotchy, this tea’s anti-inflammatory properties can be soothing for you. The content of epigallocathechin gallate (EGCG) in green tea will help prevent the collagen destruction that leads to wrinkles as well as sun-induced DNA damage in the skin.
Consider subbing tea for your morning mug of coffee.
3. Keep Stress in Check
Have you ever noticed that right before an important event, a pimple appears on your face? Those who experienced high stress levels were more likely to experience skin issues such as scaly skin, itchy skin. Other research shows that teenagers who reported high stress levels were 23% more likely to have severe acne. That’s because stress increases the body’s production of hormones which can make skin more oily and decrease its ability to fight off acne-causing bacteria. That situation leads to the increase of sebum quantity and turns to a greater acne problem.
It is so important to keep your stress level in check. If you think that stress is having an impact on your skin, try stress reduction techniques such as yoga or meditation.
4. Watch Sun Exposure Indoors
“Wear your sunscreen everyday, the higher SPF the better!” This is what Millennials/Gen-Z are trying to preach every single day. But so many people missed the notes, because they will use sunscreen only when they’re going outside. A new study found that ultraviolet rays (in particular UVA rays) can still harm your skin even after you move indoors. Ouch! That’s because UV rays can pass through glass windows.
Let’s cut to the main question! Do we need to wear sunscreen indoors? The short answer is YES! Because of this, it’s important to wear SPF inside your home, as well as inside your car. In fact, the vast majority of UV hand aging occurs while driving.
5. Monitor The Moisture Of Your Face
Along with regularly drinking water and wearing sunscreen, figuring out how to moisturise/hydrate your face correctly is one of the most essential steps of any skincare routine. Most people are not aware of the importance of skin hydration and how each hour, the level of hydration decreases slowly, especially when you live in a place with a massive level of sun exposure.
There’s a reason why SASC decided to create Refresh & Go Ultra Fine Face Mist. The Aloe Vera Extract component helps to soothe your skin, Vitamin C component will slowly heal any dark spot and Hyaluronic Acid that will keep your face hydrated while helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s everything you want for your skin in a bottle!
6. Sleep A Full Night
You can tell easily that getting a poor night of sleep doesn’t do woke-up-like-this wonders for your face. From swollen eyes, darker under eye circle, paler skin, more droopy corners of the mouth…. you named it! First and foremost, you should understand that sleep is the time when your body repairs itself. During sleep, your skin’s blood flow increases and the organ rebuilds its collagen and repairs damage from UV exposure.
Sometimes you might have an off day, but you should average seven to nine hours of sleep. Check out this video down below and see how the amount of hours you sleep can affect your overall skin and your makeup performance.
