We are all looking to achieve radiant skin. Yet it seems that sometimes our skin looks dull, weathered, and lacks color. We may feel like we are doing everything in our power to have that glow from within look but nothing seems to be working. Why is that?
We could have some underlying issues ranging from the build-up of toxins in the blood, inflammation, hormonal imbalance, or your environment. Being stuck at home, not getting fresh ever, smoking and stress can wreak havoc on our bodies and skin. Sometimes we may forget that our environment plays a major part in the integrity of your skin barrier. It’s important then that we nourish and protect ourselves from the inside out. This helps us to maintain healthy radiant skin.
So what can we do to get that radiant skin? Below I have created a checklist for achieving Radiant Skin. If you follow these guidelines you can and will get that ultimate radiant skin glow.
+ Aim for 20 minutes of exercise. It’s best to be done in the morning on an empty stomach. Motivation is generally higher at this time so you will have less excuse to do it. Fresh air and exercise assist systemic circulation.
+ Cleanse, hydrate and moisturize twice a day
+ Use a non-nano zinc-based chemical-free sunscreen daily to block out UVA and UVB rays
+ Aim for 20 minutes of relaxation
+ Use a clay mask or hydrating treatment mask at least once a week
+ Always remove your makeup prior to sleep to avoid breakouts.
+ Begin the day by drinking a large glass of water with a squeeze of lemon to alkaline the system
+ If you wear makeup regularly, beside to give your skin a break with some days off
+ Eat whole foods – organic fruits and vegetables
+ Avoid the sun especially between 10 am and 3 pm. Vitamin D is necessary, so 15 minutes of this out with protection is good for you
+ Eliminate Cigarettes
+ Minimize alcohol consumption. If you like a little indulgence drink red instead, due to the beneficial properties.
+ Cut down and minimize dairy, sugar, pre-packaged foods
+ Avoid using harsh soap on your face. This creates a drying effect from removing the skin’s natural oils, this then creates an unbalancing of natural oil secretions.
