3 Tips for Better-Looking Skin
There’s a lot that goes into looking your best. Obviously, you’ve got to take your outfits pretty seriously, and try different things on, get the sizing right, see which particular styles flatter you the most, and all the rest which ultimately ends in a closet EXPLOSION! 🙂 – I’ve been there.
Then, there’s the major art of getting your eyebrow routine on point. A real science if ever there was one.
One of the most important factors that goes into looking your best, however, is always going to be making sure that your skin is as healthy – and looks as healthy – as possible.
All else aside, looking in the mirror and thinking “wow, I’m glowing,” is a pretty good feeling.
Here are some super-simple tips you can try for better-looking skin.
Use a moisturizer that comes with UV protection
It goes without saying, that if you want your skin to look as good as it can, you’ve got to have a good moisturizing routine that you carry out every day.
When your skin is properly hydrated, it looks smoother, healthier, and it is much more likely to stand up against the wear and tear of your environment, without becoming cracked, discolored, or irritated.
Beyond just a standard moisturizing routine, though, it’s important to keep in mind the fact that UV damage can have a massively negative effect on the appearance of your skin – especially on your face.
Everyone wants to have a luscious tan going on, but all the same, using a moisturizer that comes with UV protection such as cc cream suitable for oily skin – and protecting your face whenever you are out and about in the sun – can keep you looking much more youthful, for much longer.
Turn down the temperature in your showers – and have them cold from time to time
When you come home from a long day at work, there’s pretty much nothing like a hot bath to help you to wash your stress and worries away, and set you up for an evening of blissful relaxation.
The only problem is, hot water isn’t necessarily going to do anything good for your skin – and can, in fact, dry it out, and irritate it.
One of the weirdest but most commonly agreed on alternative-beauty hacks, is to have cooler showers. And, a lot of people swear by cold showers, specifically, when it comes to protecting the quality of their skin, and reducing blemishes.
Among other things, cold showers help to preserve your skin’s natural oils, and also influence your body’s circulation in ways that can be good for your looks.
You don’t have to cut the hot baths out of your life completely – but have your showers a bit cooler as a rule, and have them cold from time to time.
Block the evening blue light, and get more sleep
Insomnia is a really common issue these days, with plenty of us struggling to get enough rest each night.
Obviously, being chronically sleep deprived and powered 100% by caffeine and stress, isn’t going to do a lot of good for your mood. But, it can also seriously do damage to the quality of your skin.
You know what you look like after an all-nighter. Your skin is washed out, you have dark rings under your eyes, you’re more likely to have blemishes and spots, and all the rest. Getting enough sleep is essential for helping your skin to repair and rejuvenate itself, and for keeping your body healthy overall. Blue, artificial light in the evenings is associated with insomnia. So dim your lights at night, and work on getting more sleep.
