Here are some tips for more radiant skin, we can all do.
Use toners and bronzer to achieve a sun kissed look rather than spending hours on a sun bed which can have serious consequences on your skin, including skin cancers.
Avoid long hot showers. This will strip your skin of all the essential moisture, causing it to dry and become less radiant.
If you have dry skin, use aloe vera cream, it is a wonderful moisturiser and nourisher that can help fight dry skin on the face, hands and body with ease.
Use garlic in cooking on a daily basis. While no one wants to kiss anyone who has just eaten garlic, a study conducted in Holland in 1996 showed that eating garlic extended the skin’s lifespan by seven times, leaving it looking healthier and more youthful.
Drink plenty of orange juice to keep your vitamin C levels high.
Don’t touch your face with your hands. Your hands are riddled with bacteria as you are constantly touching door handles, counter tops and more, these germs can then be transferred to your face, causing an unwelcome break out.
Change your moisturiser with the seasons, keeping a lighter moisturiser for summer and a thicker and more nourishing option for the winter months.
Drink a minimum of eight glasses of water each day to keep your skin hydrated.
Learn some relaxation techniques, such as breathing to help reduce stress. Stress can lead to break outs.
Get enough sleep. You’ve heard people mention ‘beauty sleep’. This is very true when it comes to maintaining radiant skin. Your skin heals during the night when it has time to breathe, so it’s essential that you get enough sleep to reduce the dark circles and puffy bags you get when you don’t get enough sleep on a nightly basis.
Protect your skin each and every day. Use moisturisers with an SPF of at least 15 to protect against the harmful rays of the sun.
Always remove make-up at night to eliminate the risk of the pores getting clogged.
Place some ice in a cloth and hold it on your cheeks as you are about to leave the house for a refreshed look.
