Whether you indulged in a lot of great food and drinks over the holidays, put in extra hours at the office, spent sleepless nights, adjusted to changes in the weather, or simply are dehydrated, our skin reacts to our every move. Acne, wrinkles, and breakouts can pop up anytime and make you feel unattractive and insecure.
Now that January is here, it’s time to reset your skin and feel beautiful in 2019. Luckily, rejuvenating the skin doesn’t have to require costly procedures or time-consuming techniques. It can be as simple as eating healthier, exercising, and using the right skin care products. Yes, it really is that easy to help renew your skin to look as fresh as a week of vacation or a day trip to the spa. Follow these tips for the best results.
You are what you eat
We’ve all heard this phrase a bazillion times, but when it comes to your skin’s health, it’s absolutely true. By eating healthy, antioxidant-rich foods, you can help your skin look and feel its best. For radiant, glowing skin and to keep wrinkles away, go for fresh veggies, fruit, whole grains, lean protein, fish, and nuts. By adding a variety of superfoods that add a big punch with extra vitamins and minerals, you can rejuvenate your skin – even if you’ve previously indulged in less-than-perfect eating habits. It’s never too late to start a healthy diet. Even small changes such as snacking on fresh berries, oranges, and avocados or having oatmeal in the morning can all make a big difference. Additionally, think beyond the plate and be sure to get plenty of sleep, regular exercise, always use sunscreen, and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin looking fresh and glowing.
Beauty Benefits from exercise
It’s hardly news that exercise is good for your entire body and your overall health. But did you know that exercise is also beneficial for your skin? Since our skin is the body’s largest organ, it makes sense that good circulation is vital to healthy, glowing skin. Skin conditions such as acne, wrinkles and dark circles can indicate the absence of oxygen to the skin. When you exercise, you’re increasing blood flow to the skin, nourishing it with vital nutrients and oxygen. Exercise does not have to be an intense activity. It can be a daily walk, yoga, playing with kids, dancing— anything that gets you moving and works up a sweat. Just don’t wait too long to cleanse after a workout.
Choose the right skincare products
For a balanced, bright and clean complexion, perhaps the most important step of all is using the right skin care products. More and more people are finally discovering the beauty benefits of witch hazel, an old-school ingredient. In fact, witch hazel is one of the top beauty trends of 2019, according to Pinterest. It’s a natural astringent that can help relieve redness, even out skin tone, reduce inflammation from acne, and cleanse skin for a fresh and rejuvenated appearance. Unlike most other witch hazel products, the witch hazel extract in Thayers formulas is not distilled and therefore contains 195% more skin-healthy tannins, which help to balance the skin’s pH levels.
Discover the benefits of a healthy diet, daily movement, adding witch hazel to your daily skin care regimen, and drinking plenty of water for healthier, rejuvenated, and glowing skin.
