We love celebrating beauty in all its forms and of all ages, but we also celebrate good skincare habits because they help us have gorgeous complexions and age beautifully.
If you are one of those people who believe that beauty can be achieved only by spending a fortune on cosmetics and skincare products, you are in the right place. Why? Because it’s time to find out exactly the opposite.
While high-quality products are mandatory, spending your savings isn’t, and you can have healthy and beautiful skin only by following the steps of a good skincare routine. If you’re ready, continue reading, and find out all about the skincare habits you must have to succeed in your quest for a radiant complexion.
Start Inside Out: Eat Healthily
So many times, you heard that you are what you eat, and we’re here to tell you that it is true! What is going on inside your body will reflect on your overall health but also your skin condition.
So, if you are used to indulging in sugary treats, carbs, or fast food goodies, it’s time to stop and start properly nourishing your body.
Good nutrition is strongly related to young-looking skin, and including skin-friendly foods in your skincare routine is a must. So, make sure you add fruits and veggies that are rich in vitamins C, A, E, and K, omega-3, zinc, selenium, and monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (good fats) to your shopping list.
Hydrating is Crucial
Did you know that up to 60% of the human adult body is water? Now you probably understand why people say water is life….And if we tell you your skin contains about 64% water, you will understand why drinking enough water is important for your complexion, too. Yes, proper hydration not only maintains your general physical health, but water plays a critical role in maintaining physiological balance in your skin.
Hydrating properly will help you achieve a healthy, radiant complexion so, don’t wait until you’re very thirsty to have that glass of freshwater. Make sure you drink it constantly during the day to keep yourself and your skin properly hydrated.
Never Skip Cleansing & Moisturizing
Cleansing is an essential part of any skincare routine. Your skin needs cleaning in the morning and the evening after it is exposed to free radicals and collects dust and dirt throughout the day. While the morning cleansing comes more naturally, many people end up so tired in the evening that they skip this step.
Such a big mistake! Imagine how harmful it is to sleep with so many free radicals and so much dirt on your skin. And if you can’t imagine, we’ll tell you that it damages the healthy collagen in your skin, and the result is shown through wrinkles and fine lines, as well as clogged facial pores that can lead to enlarged pores, acne breakouts, and other annoying skin problems.
Facial cleansing is crucial if you want to have a healthy and flawless complexion. And so is moisturizing! Though it might seem like it only has aesthetic purposes, moisturizers are vital when it comes to skincare.
Dryness and loss of moisture are some of the problems you can have with the most exposed parts of your skin, like your face. And these issues cannot be solved if you skip moisturizing.
Even if you have oily skin or live in a humid area, you need to do it. The only difference is the type of moisturizer you use. If you don’t know what your skin needs, we advise you to see a dermatologist or a skin care professional.
Always wear SPF
Have you ever heard someone saying that the sun is your skin’s biggest enemy? Let us tell you that this is true unless you wear sunscreen.
You don’t have to be on the beach to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Sunscreen is something you need to wear daily, even when it’s cloudy outside and during winter.
UV rays are always there, and they work on damaging the skin’s elastic and collagen tissue. The result is outrageous, and it consists of skin sagging, stretching, and wrinkles. Sun rays are also responsible for our freckles, age spots, skin discoloration, and even skin cancer. Make sure you use a water-resistant product with an SPF of 30 or higher that protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
Don’t Forget to Exfoliate!
We can’t stop aging and, with it, our skin’s renewal rate slows down. Adding unhealthy sleep routines and many skincare steps skipped, you end up accumulating dead skin cells on the surface of your gorgeous skin. This process also brings an irregular skin texture, dullness, and congested pores.
To avoid these problems, you need to add exfoliating to your skincare routine. Depending on how oily your skin is, you can exfoliate it once or twice a week. What is also important is using products and tools that are good for your type of skin. If you need help with choosing what is right for you, consulting a specialist is advisable.
Consistency is Bliss
Now you know what your skincare routine MUST include. But for these to work, you need to be consistent. Your skin needs daily care, and skipping any of these steps can harm your desired radiance.
In addition to regular skincare, we strongly recommend additional pampering, like facial masks, massages, and monthly or seasonal treatments. Also, wearing Blumbody smoothing pads and patches is a fantastic and noninvasive way to improve irregular collagen structure, increase blood flow, and rejuvenate your skin. Imagine wearing them at night and waking up with smooth, gorgeous skin. Because that’s what they do... They eliminate compression wrinkles and those caused by facial expressions, sun damage, or aging!
