There are lots of ways we can look after our skin and it’s not just about buying the right products (although that’s important to) here are some skincare tips that don’t cost the earth and you can add into your New Year routine!
- Stay Hydrated
Our body needs water or other fluids to work properly and to avoid dehydration. That's why it's important to drink enough fluids. In climates such as the UK's, we should drink about 1.2 litres (six to eight glasses) of fluid every day to stop us getting dehydrated. Try keeping a bottle with you throughout the day.
- Get enough Sleep
Getting enough sleep has a huge impact on your body and skins performance. Not only will it keep dark circles at bay but reduces stress which is a primary cause of acne. It is recommended that we get 7-8 hours sleep a night.
- Diet make better choices
I’m not saying go on a diet but make healthier choices when picking your snacks and meals. A bad diet can cause breakouts and make skin appear dull. Making sure you get enough fruit, veg, nutritious food will do wonders for your skins appearance.
As we get older our skin loses its elasticity. Exercise increases the circulation which encourages cell production; this in turn regenerates the skin! Blood carries oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, including the skin.
