1. Stay Hydrated
First you need to stay hydrated for a healthier you. Drinking plenty of water improves your body’s overall health and does great things for your largest organ: your skin. Glow from the inside, out.
2. Know Your Skin
Do you have oily skin, dry skin or combination? Take stock of what your skin is up to by looking at the size of your pores and where you typically get oily or dry. Larger pores are a sign of oily skin and needs plenty of astringents and retinoid to balance oil production. Products like astringents, retinoid and benzoyl peroxide decrease sebum or oil, and help eliminate shine. Oily skin is caused by hormone changes which cause excessive sebum and enlarged pores.
If your skin dries, cracks or peels during the summer you may want to adjust your environment. Dry or ashy skin can be due to lack of moisture from overuse of products that dry skin like retinoid or benzoyl peroxide, change in estrogen levels due to menopause or workplaces with dry environments and excessive air conditioning or lack of humidity.
3. Don’t Forget Your Fruits and Veggies
You may have what you need for healthy skin already laying around the house or in your pantry. Green tea and chamomile extracts soothe the skin. Fruits add moisture and witch hazel decreases the size of pores.
