How do you keep your skin looking younger? We’re a little bit obsessed with staying as youthful and as healthy as possible, so these tips (thanks to Best Health Care) will certainly help us shake off the winter torpor that we find ourselves in at the moment.
• Establish daily face-care habits
With loads of products on the market, it’s not always easy to know what’s right for your skin. Wechsler recommends sticking to the basics with a gentle cleanser, a moisturizer with sunscreen for the day and one without for the night and a gentle exfoliator. We would recommend Darphin Ideal Resource Smoothing Retexturizing Radiance Cream which is a skincare essential.
• Begin a regular sleep schedule
Most people think of sleep as a luxury, not a necessity – something that you might want but don’t necessarily need. But this is not true, she says: we need eight hours of sleep ‘in order for the body to restore and heal.”
• Book a massage and/ or connect with friends
Surround yourself with people who put you at ease, Wechsler suggests. There’s nothing like a simple coffee break or an afternoon at the spa (or in the bedroom) to put things in perspective.
• Focus on daily breathing exercises
Take a few minutes to appreciate your breath and actually listen as you inhale and exhale. This can help keep cortisol (a.k.a. the “stress hormone”) levels in check.
• Get out in nature and take in your surroundings
A brisk 20-minute walk in the sun (even when it’s chilly) will give you some much-needed vitamin D and boost circulation.
• Drink green tea
If you’re going to take up one habit this year, make it green tea. It not only hydrates like water, but it’s loaded with flavonoids (known for their antioxidant activity).
• Choose nutrient-rich whole foods over processed
To keep blood sugar levels steady and skin happy, opt for whole grains and complex carbohydrates like brown rice, bulgur and whole wheat pasta, which are rich in fatty acids that have skin-smoothing properties.
