Has your skin been looking a little dull lately, and you’re not entirely sure what to do about it? The hard truth is that our skin will put out what we put into it. If all you’re eating is junk food and soda, your skin will reflect that. If your gut isn’t healthy, your skin will reflect that. If you’re not getting enough sleep or exercise, your skin is going to, unfortunately, show this. On the other side, though, if you’re putting good things into your body and doing something to improve your overall health, this will also reflect on your skin.
Here are four simple things you can start incorporating into your day to have healthier-looking and feeling skin.
1. Drink Plenty of Water
It seems too simple to be true, right? Drinking water helps to hydrate your body from the inside out. It lubricates your joints, bones, and muscles and cleanses your organs, freeing your body of harmful toxins. It also hydrates the skin for a glow from within. If your body is dehydrated, your skin will show dullness, blotchiness, and even fine lines and wrinkles. Keep your body hydrated, and you’ll keep your skin glowing and healthy.
2. Exercise Regularly
Exercise increases your heart rate and blood flow. Good blow flow throughout your skin helps to encourage cell turnover, stave off pre-mature signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines, and also helps to purge harmful toxins from your skin through sweat. Your cheeks might be a little pink for an hour, but afterward, your body will feel rejuvenated, and your skin will be glowing with the post-workout endorphins rushing through your body. Exercise has the added bonus of relieving stress and releasing serotonin which can also help you achieve gorgeous skin. Stress shows up on our skin in all kinds of ways. Put on your favorite walking shoes, grab the dog or the kids, and go for a 20 or 30-minute walk this afternoon, or call up your friend and head to the gym for a class. Your skin and your body will thank you.
3. Get Plenty of Rest
Easier said than done with a full-time job, family, or school, but the importance of sleep and rest is paramount to the health and vitality of your skin. When we’re asleep, it gives our body maintenance time because it doesn’t have to focus on keeping you up and going; it can solely focus on repairs. These repairs can include an injury, muscle aches, and fatigue but also skin rehabilitation. Our cells turn over when we’re sleeping and do incredible work for our skin. Try to get a full eight hours of sleep into your schedule or a nap in the day to encourage the health of your skin.
4. Seek a Professional’s Help
For healthier skin, try a treatment at least once ever six to twelve weeks to maintain the glow and radiance of your healthy skin. At M Spa Face & Body, our skin expert offer top of the line treatments like WiQo, a chemical treatment with PRX-T33 that penetrates deeply to revitalize the skin for an all-over glow. You’ll notice immediate improvements in texture and laxity.
