So, how do you achieve this ultimate complexion? The skincare and wellness experts at Nuriss list their top 5 tips for beautiful, glowing skin…
Feed Your Skin
Radiant skin starts from the inside. Just like every other part of your body and health reflects what you eat, so does your skin. If you aren’t eating a balanced diet with healthy, natural food, them your skin is going to suffer from it. Poor diets with greasy foods, sugar and not enough essential nutrients and water will be dull and either oily and pimply or dry and tight, potentially with dark circles, blotches and early signs of ageing. If you eat plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, proteins and healthy fats, as well as drinking lots of water, then your skin will develop a natural healthy glow. Green tea is another great ingredient to a healthy diet, and has some extremely beneficial antioxidants for skin health.
Follow this Foolproof Skincare Routine
Once you are feeding your skin well, it’s time to look at how you’re caring for it from the outside. Your skin – especially your face – needs to be cleaned and cared for twice a day to ensure you are keeping your pores unclogged and fresh new skin cells surfacing. There is, however, an art to your skincare routine, and a lot of people get it wrong. You need to firstly ensure that you’re choosing products that are suitable for your skin type, and then make sure you are using them correctly. Follow this foolproof skincare guide to ensure you’re getting the most out of your products. And make sure you are following the right routine for morning and night.
Don’t forget to Exfoliate
Cleansing, toning and moisturising is extremely important for your overall skincare, but to go the extra step and achieve the most radiant skin possible, you need to add exfoliation into your routine. It removes dead skin cells and stimulates collagen growth, encouraging healthy new cells to develop, which kick starts a healthy rejuvenation process. You shouldn’t exfoliate twice a day – every time you cleanse your face – and you shouldn’t even do it every day. Exfoliation is an important part of your weekly skincare routine, and should be done once or twice during the week. There are a range of exfoliators and masks to choose from that are suited to different skin types.
Change with the Seasons
Make like a deciduous tree and change your skincare products and routine with the seasons. The weather plays an important role in what your skin needs and how healthy it is, so, you need to change your products to suit. For example, you might need oil control products during the summer when you sweat a lot and wear sunscreen, and in the winter, if the harsh, windy weather causes your skin to dry out, you may need to choose some heavier, more moisturising products.
Follow this sequence of skin-healthy yoga poses to boost circulation and lymphatic drainage around your body. As well as increasing fitness, flexibility and balance, while decreasing stress and stiffness, yoga is a great tool for skin health. Inversions are extremely beneficial for the skin on your face, because they reverse the flow of blood and give you a healthy glow, while stress-relieving stretches can reduce the likelihood of stress-induced breakouts and dark circles around the eyes.
