Getting and keeping clear skin is easier than you think. Pick up these healthy habits to help banish breakouts and blemishes.
1. Use Something with Vitamin C
Taking vitamins is important, but so is using beauty products with vitamins! I’ve been really loving these two Vitamin C serums here and here. Vitamin C helps visibly brighten your skin, reduce dark spots and overall improve the texture of your skin!
2. Try a Collagen Powder
Are you guys using a collagen powder yet? Collagen by definition is ‘the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues.’ Basically, it gives structure to your hair, nails, bones, ligaments, and tendons. So incorporating more collagen into your daily diet means healthy joints, strong nails and hair, and glowing skin! What’s not to love? Just add some to your morning coffee.
It takes 21 days to make or break a habit- so start TODAY. Do you guys have any skin habit that you’ve adopted and loved? Let me know in the comments below!
You should be wearing sunscreen every single day. Sunny out? Sunscreen. Overcast? Still sunscreen. Rainy? Sun. Screen. If you haven’t adopted this habit yet, especially as the season for sun-worshipping is upon us- start now! This one here is great because it sets your makeup AND gives you SPF! And we all know how much I love a good double-duty beauty product!
4. Invest in a Good Eye Cream
The skin around your eyes is the most delicate layer on your face. That means it wrinkles faster, and shows the first signs of fatigue more so than the rest of your face (can you say puffy eye-bags and dark circles?) So that means your eyes deserve extra special care. A good eye cream can go a LONG way. I’m loving this one and this one right now! Even if you don’t see wrinkles now, eye creams are the best way to prevent wrinkles and crows feet from developing. If you’re in your teens/20’s, I recommend an anti-aging eye cream like this one.
5. Drink More Water
I know, I know you’ve probably heard this million times. But a good reminder never hurt anyone. So chug some H2O! Text your friends and remind them! Tweet it! Your skin and body will thank you, I promise. I have a hard time remembering to drink water but having a super cute water bottle like this one helps me remember to hydrate!
6. Add Hyaluronic Acid for Moisture
Believe it or not, Hyaluronic Acid, aka HA is something you already have in your body! Yep, it’s already in your skin and connective tissues throughout your body to keep everything nice and lubricated. So why should you add it to your skincare routine? Well, HA is really good at retaining moisture. Like really really good. As you age, your skin loses its natural ability to retain moisture – so adding HA serums like this one & this one to your routine is a great way to make sure you get all that goodness to your skin.
7. Be Mindful of How You Wash Your Face
At this point, you’re probably on auto-pilot when you wash your face- am i right? But tonight when you wash your face- notice how your hands move! You probably wash down, pushing the product or water downwards on your face! But STOP! Think about it this way- gravity pulls down, which is how wrinkles are created! Try washing up, using upwards motions. It might take a while to get used to- but you’ll thank me later!
