Keeping the skin healthy is the secret to maintaining that summer glow. Below are some ways to help keep our skin looking great into the Fall season and beyond!
Wearing sunscreen is essential. The ultraviolet rays from the sun can dry skin out, ruin your glow, and of course, put you at risk for skin cancer. Make sure to wear at least SPF 15. To avoid the greasy feeling of sunscreen, try a lightweight solution made specifically for your face; Neutrogena has some great options!
Exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells. It also helps remove toxins that can accumulate underneath the skin. Women should exfoliate their skin at least once a week. There are a number of ways to exfoliate, but microdermabrasion is one of the most effective ways to do it.
There are many different ways to perform microdermabrasion at home: you can purchase a full kit complete with wand, or simply use microderm masks and cleansers. The immediate result of microdermabrasion is clearer, smoother skin. When microdermabrasion is performed on a regular basis, it can reduce acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, helping you to achieve a great complexion with younger-looking skin. Make sure you do your research if purchasing a microdermabrasion at home kit, however; they can be pricey and some aren’t great for sensitive skin. You can read reviews and educate yourself online at retailers like ShopNBC or your favorite beauty emporium.
Drink lots of water
The skin is an organ, so if a woman wants to keep her skin glowing and healthy, she will have to keep the rest of her body healthy. Drinking six to eight cups of water per day helps rid the body of toxins that can rob the skin of its youthful beauty. Additionally, it’s wise to avoid sodas and other sugary beverages because they can be bad for the skin (and your overall health).
Eat a healthy diet
Fish, walnuts, fruits and vegetables are some of the best foods for skin. Fish and walnuts are high in omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids not only keep the skin glowing, but these nutrients also help reduce free radical damage; these free radicals are compounds that can cause the skin to age faster. If you’re not a big fish, nut, or veggie eater, try a supplement like this one. Additionally, fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants, can neutralize free radicals, and are just all-around good for you!
So as summer winds down and we get ready for Fall, remember to keep up with your skin regimen if you want to retain that summer glow.
