Maintaining radiant and healthy looking skin entirely our own responsibility. It doesn’t have to do with just using the best creams and serums for our skin, even the most disciplined routine is not enough to slow the aging process. The signs of aging are inevitably unavoidable as our collagen production naturally decreases as years pass. Certain skin disorders may be treated with medication, but results are uncertain and ingested chemicals may do more harm than good in the long term. A more meaningful change to keep healthy looking skin is to maintain healthy lifestyle habits.
Lifestyle Habits for Healthy Looking Skin
Get Enough Sleep
Sleep is essential not only to make your skin look younger and rested but to minimize fatigue and stress.
Stop Bad Health Habits
Avoid smoking and watch your alcohol intake. Smoking depletes oxygen levels in your skin, therefore depriving it of key nutrients involved in cell regeneration. Healthy collagen and elastin production needs energy-rich nutrients to replenish itself and maintain your skin’s youthful appearance. Alcohol draws water from other parts of your body, including your skin, to protect your brain. Moisture and hydration is key to keeping wrinkles and fine lines at bay and maintaining healthy looking skin.
Giving yourself a quick facial massage will stimulate blood flow and invigorate cell production. A quick face rub can also decrease stress and tension, preventing wrinkles and eliminating toxins by stimulating the lymphatic vessels.
You are what you eat. Skin is the largest organ of the body and therefore requires ample nutrition, including essential vitamins and minerals. Many skin conditions can be avoided by eating whole foods rather than processed foods. Adopt nutrition habits that will not take your body’s energy away from keeping you healthy (hair and nails included).
Hollywood celebrities have been spotted leaving cryosalons, and for good reason. Their livelihood mostly depend on their (good) looks. Cryotherapy, be it whole body or more targeted in the form of a Cryofacial™ provides many health benefits. Those benefits extend to skin health, as well, as a direct consequence of the mechanism itself: vasoconstriction followed by vasodilation, a process that cleanses, distributes oxygen and nutrients and boost cellular regeneration.
When it comes to healthy looking skin, there is no shortage of ways to stop the aging process and of skin care products. Another tip though, watch for the mention of “pH-Balanced” in the description, if it is not pH-balanced, it may be too harsh for your skin and defeat the purpose. If you take care of your skin daily and allow yourself to let a professional take care of it for you on a regular basis you can have a beautiful smooth looking skin.
