Are you still chasing that enviable and elusive glow? The key to look your best lies in a holistic approach. Follow these tips and you’ll soon shine like a star. And always keep in mind, real beauty comes from inside.
1 Hydration is crucial
Our bodies contain almost 60% water but daily topping up is required. Always have a bottle of water with you to quench your body’s thirst.
2 Healthy diet is vital
What you eat also plays a role in strengthening your skin’s ability to maintain moisture. Foods rich in essential fatty acids present in walnuts, flaxseed, salmon, and olive oil help skin cells stay hydrated, while dry skin will benefit from a diet rich in foods such as oranges, berries, grapes, peaches, watermelon, cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, and celery.
3 Alcohol, coffee and cigarettes are your enemies
Avoid drinking too much alcohol and coffee, and keep your hands off cigarettes. They all cause skin dehydration and make your skin prone to premature wrinkles. You don’t have to stop all the things you love but keep in mind there is too much of a good thing, so everything in moderation.
4 Take care of your smile
A woman’s smile is said as being the only most important physical feature that leads to being viewed as attractive. A generous charming smile is the best facelift you can have so take care of it. Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day with a soft toothbrush and an SLS-free toothpaste. Follow up your routine with an interdental brush to make sure all the gaps are clean too and at the end use a mild mouth rinse to finish off the job. This is a recipe for a winning smile every day!
5 Supply extra hyaluronic acid
Top up your body’s natural levels of hyaluronic acid (HA). Almost half of HA present in the body is located in the collagen of pores and skin, functioning as a moisture-retaining gel. Studies have proven that HA improves skin and tissue hydration, acts as a free radical scavenger, and contributes to the production of collagen in the skin. HA itself has a short lifespan and the body has to produce it every day to maintain the levels necessary for the repair and regeneration of tissues lost through wear and tear.
