Skin & Body Care
It’s September, the sun’s still shining and you’re looking bomb AF. Its time to keep your summer skin looking its very best for as long as possible.
Here are five ways to hold on to that glow:
- Drink plenty of water
Dehydration can leave skin looking dull, saggy and tired. Drinking plenty of water will not only keep your skin nice and hydrated, it’ll also help flush out toxins too.
Getting that blood pumping will increase your circulation and make you feel good. We all naturally radiate when we feel good.
Anything that gets your heart going is great. Running, skipping and spinning does this well.
Increasing your circulation also helps stimulate the lymphatic system which helps rid the body of toxins. Note: Make sure to cleanse your skin after exercise though as sweat and dead skin cells are a recipe for blackheads and spots.
3. Eat healthily
Sounds boring but it works. Eating foods that are rich in antioxidants and that have good fats can give quick results.
Spinach, blueberries, dark grapes and raspberries all contain antioxidants which help to fight free radicals.
Eating organic is a good way to minimise toxins and those miss-shaped fruit and veg are usually more tastier than those that are mass produced.
Seeds, nuts and fish are rich in good fatty acids which helps your skin look more youthful and glowing.
Get some sleep because its obvs if you are tired, you will look tired too. Your skin needs replenishment time and a good night sleep will help you look and feel refreshed and replenish.
5. Use good skin and body care
Ingredients do matter. Using products with good quality ingredients can make all the difference.
Protecting the skin from both outdoor and indoor elements is important especially as the weather changes. Harmful UV exposure, central heating and pollution can all wreck havoc with our skin.
HydroPeptide recently launched Nourishing Glow Body Shimmer Oil which contains a rich blend of jojoba oil to nourish dehydrated skin and smooth uneven texture.
The subtly shimmering light-weight oil works to mimic our skin’s own natural barrier function providing protection from outdoor elements such as pollution and weather changes.
It contains vitamins C & E which also works to reduce pigmentation that has occurred during a summer of fun, providing an effective barrier to keep skin soft and supple.
Plus, the millions of illuminating mineral fragments in each bottle gives a lit-from-within subtle shimmer to the skin.
