Watch what you eat.
A simple diet that cuts out or cuts down sugars, coffee, processed foods and alcohol specifically can really clear up your skin. Eat a variety of vegetables every day. Lots of coloured vegetables have lots of antioxidants which helps to protect your cells.
A good night's sleep is crucial for great skin. When you are sleep-deprived, your body makes more of the stress hormone cortisol and elevated levels of cortisol in your body can lead to inflammation. Inflammation can create acne breakouts, increase your skin sensitivity and trigger allergic reactions. Sufficient regular sleep is also important because while you're sleeping, the body's hydration rebalances and your cells undergo a regeneration process which helps skin look best.
Research shows that lack of sleep causes our skin to age quicker.
Drink plenty of water, 9 to 11 cups of water daily at least.
Exfoliation is important for clear skin. It helps reduce acne and blackhead breakouts and also speeds up the skin cell renewal process leading to brighter and smoother looking skin. As we age, our skin also becomes drier and less elastic, which can increase the appearance and occurrence of fine lines and wrinkles. Exfoliating twice weekly will keep skin renewed while removing the dead skin cells that clog skin and leave it looking dull. For the body stimulating lymph drainage and improving circulation is very important for everyone particularly as we get older. Dry body brushing prior to your shower daily. Use wet exfoliating gloves all over gently exfoliates and stimulates circulation – do this once or twice a week.
