When it comes to leading a happy and successful life, many people will tell you that “confidence is key”, and nothing gives you confidence quite like having a smooth and glowing complexion. Smooth skin, however, isn’t something that many people just naturally have.
But don’t worry, there are plenty of easy things you can do in your daily life to get you closer to having the smooth, clear skin of your dreams. In addition to lifestyle changes, there are also a number of skincare products that can help you achieve the smooth skin you are looking for.
Here are five simple and easy tips for smooth skin that you can apply to your life, TODAY!
Ways To Get Smooth Skin
It’s no secret that drinking water is great for your body and mind’s overall health. But drinking water is one of the most important (and easiest!) things you can do to improve the complexion of your skin.
Drinking plenty of water helps to flush out harmful toxins from your body that negatively effect your skin, and allows for your skin cells to function at maximum efficiency. When your body has enough hydration, it gives you plumper and fuller looking skin. We recommend having eight to ten glasses of water today for the best results.
Eat a Healthy Diet
No surprise here that a healthy diet affects your skin’s health! It’s completely fine to indulge in your favorite pizza or ice cream every now and then, but constant junking and fried foods won’t do your skin any favors. Try to add foods with plenty of vitamin A, vitamin C, Zinc, and antioxidants to your diet. Vitamin C is especially important because it creates collagen, which adds structure and firmness to your skin. It also helps protect your skin from free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage skin cells and cause aging.
If your sweet tooth cravings start to be too much to handle, try dark chocolate! The cocoa flavanols in dark chocolate improve the structure of your skin, decrease roughness and scaling on your skin, and it supports your skin’s defenses against damage from UV rays!
Get Your Body Moving
Not only will regular exercise and movement help strengthen your muscles and cardiovascular health, it also has a plethora of benefits for your skin. Exercise will help reduce inflammation in your skin, and helps to regulate skin-significant hormones.
Plus, sweating helps to remove some debris from your pores. Dr. Anna Guanche, a board-certified dermatologist in the Los Angeles area, notes that “exercise induces more blood volume to be pumped through the vessels of the face, leading to more micronutrients and healing properties to the facial skin.”
Put the Phone Down, and GET SOME SLEEP
Although sleep and what our bodies do when we sleep largely remains a mystery, we all know that we need it! Your body repairs itself and recovers from the day during sleep. A lack of sleep can lead to saggy under eyes, sunken in skin, and an unhealthy yellow or pale brown hue.
Protect Your Skin from Harmful UV Rays
Wear your sunscreen! The sun gives us light and life, and for many people it gives us energy! However, without proper protection the sun can lead to premature aging of your skin, and leave you with damaged spots. In addition to sunscreen, adding kale (lutein and zeaxanthin) and red tomatoes (lycopene) to your diet can also help protect your skin from harmful UV rays!
See? Healthy and unblemished skin doesn’t have to be difficult. Each of these lifestyle tips can be easily done, and with a little practice, can become daily habits.
