Many people are unaware of it, but many things influence the state of your skin. Without a balanced combination of some of these things, you might continue to struggle with skincare issues day in and day out! Not to worry, that’s why I’m here! In this blog, I want to share the 4 essential pillars of getting and maintaining healthy skin. That constant glow is achievable; you just have to pay more attention to the following;
The food you eat can make a massive difference in the appearance and health of your skin. You’re probably wondering, how does your diet affect your skin? Studies have shown that people who consume too much-processed sugar suffer more acne and skin inflammation. Foods high in carbohydrates, dairy, and fast food tend to increase your blood sugar levels rapidly. An increase in insulin levels triggers the androgen hormones in your system. This hormone is responsible for increasing the production of sebum.
If your skin is prone to acne, it becomes oily as you consume these foods. Consume more healthy foods rich in vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. Drink more water! You’ve probably heard this a thousand times, but I cannot emphasize it enough. Water helps to keep your skin moisturized and healthy. Your outer skin is sometimes always a reflection of what you eat.
Summer body and toned muscles may be your motivation to exercise, but what if I told you that exercising could also affect your glow? When we exercise, we increase our heart rate and blood flow, and this helps to revitalize our skin cells. Increased blood flow promotes oxygen production, and skin cells need oxygen to thrive. Additionally, increased blood flow from exercising helps to reduce toxins and waste products from your skin cells.
So, as much as you’re focused on getting that summer body and toned muscles, be conscious that your skin benefits from your exercise routine.
Stress Relieving Activities
Studies have shown that stress hormones influence sebaceous glands, which produce sebum on the skin. Simply put, the more stressed out you are, the duller your skin looks, giving room for acne and other skin flare-ups. Activities like Yoga, meditation, taking a walk, and just having a good bath can go a long way in affecting your skin health.
Sebum buildup is responsible for acne flare-ups on your skin, so the goal is to reduce the amount of sebum produced by indulging in stress-relieving activities. Having a relaxed mind and body reflects outwardly through the state of our skin.
Building an effective skincare Regimen
Eating healthy, exercising, and living stress-free are great ways to boost your skin health, but an effective skincare regimen is like a final stamp. As you go about your day, you’re shedding skin cells, and they build up on your face. The only way to keep your skin looking flawless and healthy is by developing an effective skincare routine. An effective skincare routine addresses all your skin concerns and tackles them product by product.
Your homecare skin routine should happen daily in this particular order;
In addition to your home care routine, a monthly visit to a professional esthetician will keep your skin in its best condition. The monthly facials with your esthetician will tackle any skincare issues that your routine cannot handle. Your esthetician would advise you on the best products for your skin type. You need discipline to maintain healthy skin. Your skin thrives when you do, so the goal is to be mentally, physically and emotionally whole.
As your professional esthetician, it is my duty to help you on your skincare journey. With the correct information and the right process, healthy, dewy, glowy skin is achievable! Seek.The.Beat is here to help make your journey to clear, healthy skin easier.
