In this post, I will give you tips and tricks on how to get beautiful glowing skin and to look young with clear soft skin. These tips should be on your daily routine and the best part is that you don’t have to buy expensive products.
The basics on getting a beautiful glowing skin
Different advice and products in the market claim to take care of the skin. The list is endless and it can get confusing on which products to use, how to use it, and when to use it. Even if there are an infinite number of products out there, there are basic steps in skincare you can’t skip. In this post, I will show you what those steps are, and explain to you why they are so important. You’ll be able to see that having a skincare routine is simple, budget-friendly, and not time-consuming.
A clean face will do wonders to your skin
Washing your face seems like an obvious step, but some times we all skip it due to different reasons, such as lack of time, hectic life, or even tiredness.
Whenever I used to arrive late at home. I would put my pajamas on and get into bed as fast as I could and I would think that because it was only one time it would be okay. What I didn’t stop to think is that those times would add up and make a habit of not washing my face. And even if indeed it was only one time. That one time affected how my skin looked the day after.
When a person doesn’t wash their face, the pores get clogged and it causes different reactions (pimples, acne, itchiness, redness, etc). This is because the skin produces sebum (oily substance) to protect the skin. Sebum is good for the skin, but when you don’t wash your face it gets mixed with sweat, dust, pollution, dirt, etc.
Clogged pores are easy to prevent by washing your face at least twice a day. At night, you should remove all your make up and then wash your face. I do this with neutral soap and when I feel my skin extra dirty I wash it with baking soda. In the mornings is much easier, I wash it with the same neutral soap and if my skin is sensitive that day I use only water.
Hydration keeps skin issues away
The 63% of the skin is water, this means that the most important step to having beautiful glowing-looking skin is to be hydrated all the time.
Water is in charge of many body functions besides maintaining the skin hydrated such as absorbing nutrients, detoxifying the body, protecting organs, etc. So when there isn’t enough water for this body functions, there isn’t enough water for the skin. For this reason, it is important to drink the necessary amount of water, so there is enough water for your skin to remain hydrated.
Lack of skin hydration can cause many skin problems (eczema, discoloration, acne, dry skin, spots, etc). There are different skin reactions to dehydrated skin, so it is important to make sure that you are getting the right amount of water every day.
On average, you should drink 11 cups of water; and can also come in the form of tea and infusions. Keep in mind that water consumption comes from everything you eat and drink. Some fruits and vegetables are both rich in water such as watermelon, berries, cucumber, lettuce, etc. And can help you in your daily water intake.
Moisturized skin is important
Now you know about hydrated skin, so let’s discuss how and why to keep it moisturized. Have you ever heard about trans epidermal water loss (TEWL)?
TEWL is the process of water passing from the dermis to the epidermis and the water evaporates. In other words, TEWL is the loss of water from the skin. TEWL is naturally regulated, but it can be affected by external agents such as humidity, injuries, weather, etc.
An excess of TEWL makes your skin look dry and flaky, it highlights wrinkles and face-lines, and it doesn’ help you to get a glowing skin.
To prevent an excess of TEWL and to keep the skin moisturized it is necessary to use products that are humectant. These products will help you to lock in the moisture and will make your skin look fresh, even, young and glowing.
Most of the daily and nighttime creams and/or lotions are humectant, after all, it’s what they are supposed to do. You don’t need to buy expensive face creams that promise wonders when many other affordable creams will make the job.
Sunscreen keeps you looking younger
Sunscreen protects the skin from the UV rays, and even if we don’t see them, they are outside every single day. Including when it’s cloudy and raining outside.
The UV rays not only cause cancer and sunburn but also is the principal cause of premature aging. This comes with a leathery dry-looking skin and causes discoloration in the skin creating an uneven color, it also creates premature wrinkles and fine lines.
The good news is that it can be prevented by wearing sunscreen every single day. By doing these you’ll notice a huge difference in your skin and also prevent future problems.
Have you ever heard about beauty sleep? Sleeping time is the time when the body repairs itself, it’s maintenance time. Not only for skin but also for the organs and muscles. This is because when we sleep, we produce the growth hormone. This hormone allows an increase in collagen production.
Collagen helps the skin cells to renew and repair. It helps the skin to maintain elasticity, prevents wrinkles, and helps to reduce TEWL. Keeping the skin moist. We can say collagen and sleep makes you look younger.
Do you want to keep looking younger? Well, all you need is to sleep! 8 hours of sleep will do wonders for your body. If a young fresh glowing-looking skin isn’t enough to convince you. 8 hours of sleep will also help you in losing body fat. The best part is that it is completely free!
Good Nutrition makes you glow!
Now you know that when you sleep the skin repairs, renews and collagen is produced, but for this process, the skin needs nutrients. Different and many nutrients.
Each nutrient has a different purpose, for example, vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and helps with skin regeneration. Omega-3 helps the skin to keep moisturized, thick, and prevents you to have dry skin. Vitamin E prevents inflammation and we can go on and on about nutrients.
Getting the necessary nutrients is quite simple. Eat your fruits and vegetables. A balanced meal will take you far away. What my nutritionist has told me is that by eating 3 different fruits a day and different vegetables with different colors will give me enough nutrients. Of course, this changes for everybody, some people can not have much sugar from the fruits, they have certain restrictions, etc. Luckily you can buy multivitamins, although I would recommend for you to consult your doctor before purchasing any vitamin as you may not even need to buy any.
The glowing recipe
In few words, Your daily skincare routine should consist in sleeping 8h a day, eating healthy, drinking the necessary amount of water according to your body, wash your face in the morning and night, use cream after washing your face, use sunscreen every day (even if there is no sun) and look amazing because you are amazing.
