6 Things You Can Do Today To Improve Your Complexion
Author: Michelle Teeken Date Posted:29 April 2022
Fresh, glowing and flawless skin will always be on trend, but how do we achieve that? We all know wearing SPF is important in our daily skincare routine, but what are some other things we can do to help better our skin? Here are some tips we recommend you should do to help improve the skin you're in!
DRINK MORE WATER
The most natural way to get that radiant and healthy skin we all want is to start drinking more water! Not only does water keep your body hydrated, but it also helps maintain your skin's elasticity. People who drink more water are less prone to suffer from scaring and wrinkles. Higher water consumption may also reduce your acne breakouts by decreasing the concentration of oil on your skin. So how much water does the typical healthy adult need? According to studies, men need about 3.7 litres of fluids a day and women need 2.7 litres.
Exfoliating is the method of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. It helps with creating glowing and clearer skin, encourages cell turnover, and assists in unclogging pores. To gently exfoliate your skin, add water to a MY ECO BEAUTY KIT MAKEUP REMOVER PAD and go over your face in small circular motions. If you have dry and sensitive skin, you may want to exfoliate less frequently. Whereas oily skin types can get away exfoliating more often.
REMOVE YOUR MAKEUP
Did you know that sleeping in your makeup is one of the worst things you can do for your skin?
Not washing or cleansing your face before you hit the hay can cause the following:
- Premature Aging and Collagen Degradation.
- Acne Flare-Ups.
- Dull and Dry Complexion
- Irritated Skin and Eyes
- Risk of Inflection
That's why no matter how tired you are at the end of the day; it is incredibly important to remove it before bed. To remove your makeup efficiently, use one of our SKIN ESSENTIAL products. Now that you've removed your makeup, it is time to get your beauty sleep.
GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Don't skimp on your beauty sleep! While asleep, your skin makes new collagen, rejuvenates, and repairs itself. Not only that, but the body increases blood flow to the skin, which gives you a healthy glow. Lack of sleep can cause your complexion can look dull and lifeless. Experts recommend that you should be sleeping at least seven to eight hours each night. Your skin will thank you later!
CHANGE YOUR PILLOWCASE REGULARLY
Do you often get breakouts no matter how well you stick to your skincare routine? Your pillowcase may be the main culprit. Pillowcases build up oils, dirt, and sweat with their daily use, which can in turn harbour bacteria. This is one of the leading causes of acne and allergies, so make sure to change your pillowcase every 7-10 days. TIP: Try switching from a cotton pillowcase to a silk one! Silk causes less friction against your skin and is great for people with sensitive skin.
DON'T FORGET TO MOISTURIZE
Moisturizing helps reduce skin concerns by keeping the skin healthy and hydrated. Doing so everyday can prevent the skin from becoming extremely dry or oily, as both alternatives can cause skin issues. When your skin dries out, this causes an imbalance to occur. This can be concerns such as irritation, redness, acne, and even an overreactive production of oil to counteract the dryness. To prevent this, you want a moisturizer that will help balance your skin. We recommend using the EMBRYOLISSE LAIT-CRÈME CONCENTRÈ MIRACLE CREAM as it is a rich, moisturizing lotion suitable for all skin types. This versatile cream not only hydrates dry skin, but it also restores the skin's glow, primes, and removes makeup.
