Healthy Habits for Healthy Skin
Let’s be honest, starting and maintaining habits are hard.
It’s normal to go through a period of trial and error, but when it comes to skincare, consistency is everything. When people are quick to criticize their skin’s results, it’s often because of inconsistent application, laziness, or simply falling out of rhythm in an overly complicated routine.
Top 4 Tips for Achieving Healthy Skin
We lose water everyday through sweat, urine and even breathing. It’s crucial that we replenish and keep ourselves hydrated to provide our inner organs and skin (the largest organ of our body) with moisture that has been lost. Did you know that more than half adults in The United States don’t drink enough water? Health experts recommend drinking eight, 8-ounce glasses of water per day, which equals to about 2 litres (or half a gallon). Drinking the recommended amount of water (and more!) flushes toxins out of our bodies, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and actually helps prevent pimples and acne on your skin. Find your cutest water bottle, and make a conscious habit of drinking more water, every single day.
Sleep For Glowing Skin
Sleeping = Healing. Our skin goes through a cycle of restoration while we sleep, so naturally if we cut back on hours of sleep, we’re reducing the amount of time our skin has to repair in each night. Adults over 18 should get at least 7 hours of sleep each night, which may seem like a lot, especially when life gets hectic.
Protect Skin From The Sun
Applying sunscreen should be a daily habit not just in the summer time, but all year round. Not only does it lower your risk of getting skin cancer, but it also prevents pre-mature aging of your skin! SPF helps prevent dark spots and discolouration on skin from sun damage, helping you maintain a more even skin tone..
Having a healthy diet goes hand-in-hand with drinking plenty of water. Oils and fats that are found in fish, nuts, olive oil, etc fuel our bodies with healthy oils and omega-3 fatty acids, that can greatly impact the health of our skin. These oils and fats help the collagen production in your skin. What is collagen? It’s a protein in your body that has various important roles, including providing structure to your skin. By increasing your skin’s collagen production, your skin will become smoother and overall healthier.
Simplicity matters as much as the habit itself. The simpler the routine, the more likely we are to stick to it. What is your best habit? Follow us on Facebook and Instagram @communitysixtysix to join our community, so we can create healthy habits, together.
