Nobody wants to deal with skin issues at any time, but especially not when you have an upcoming event where you’d like to present a fresh face (wedding, big meeting, date). No matter how hard you try, there’ll always be days when your skin doesn’t look quite as good as it could. However, though that may be the case, there are certain things you can do that’ll help to reduce the number of those days. In this blog, we’ll look at nine tips that’ll push your skin in the right direction. 

Clean Your Face

You can’t expect to have flawless skin if it’s dirty! It’s all too easy to splash some water on our faces and assume that’ll do the trick, but in reality, good old H20 is not enough to wash away all that dirt and grime. There are plenty of excellent face cleansers available on the market, and they don’t have to cost the earth — in fact, many of them are available cheaply. With that being said, it’s best to avoid the cheapest products, especially if you have sensitive skin. 

Invest in a Good Moisturiser

Your face takes a beating throughout the day, especially in the winter months, when the cold temperatures and wind can dry out your skin. If you’re beginning to feel dry or cracked skin on your body, then it’s time to invest in a good moisturizer. You’ll want to get at least two — one for your body and one for your face. As with the face cleanser, it’s best to get one that’s specifically designed with your skin type in mind. Regular moisturizing can be the difference between healthy, glowing skin, and one that’s looking a little worse for wear.

Be Sun Aware

It can be oh-so-nice to feel the sun’s rays on your face. However, remember that there is such a thing as too much sun. It’s highly important to keep your skin safe when you’re in the sunshine. There really is no such thing as safe tanning. You can protect your skin on a long-term basis by wearing sunscreen every time you go out in the sunshine, even during the winter months. And, of course, never get to the point where you’re burning your skin! 

Exercise

Regular exercise can have a profoundly positive impact on many aspects of your life. It’ll make you feel happier, give you more energy, and, yep, can also push your skin in the right direction. Have you noticed how people who regularly spend time at the gym tend to have that healthy glow? It’s not by accident. So why not consider joining a gym? You’ll get a whole host of benefits, great skin being one of them. Sweat it all out on the treadmill, take a cold shower afterward, and use the right products — you’ll find that your skin and eyes shine brighter than ever. 

Drink Water

Your body needs water to be at its best. Indeed, many people that think they have bad skin don’t really — it’s just that they’re not drinking enough water! For reasons that aren’t entirely clear, the majority of people fail to drink the required levels of water. If you’re continually dehydrated, then your skin will show it. If you really struggle with drinking water, then there are a couple of things you can do that’ll help you to consume more. One is to get a water app that’ll tell you when to drink (it sounds dumb, but it can be helpful in the first few days). Another is to flavour the water so it doesn’t taste so bland (lemon or cucumber water can be delicious and super refreshing).

Handling Skin Issues

Even if you generally look after your skin, it’s possible that you’ll experience dry skin and other issues from time to time. After all, there are many conditions that can cause dry skin, such as eczema. It’s also possible that your dry skin issue will affect a part of your body that is typically overlooked. For example, your head, which many people fail to nourish correctly. If you’ve been having issues with your scalp, then take a read of Dandruff Vs. Dry Scalp: How To Tell The Difference And Treat Each One — it’ll help you to get to the root of the problem. Of course, if you have a skin condition that doesn’t heal or respond to over-the-counter medications, then be sure to speak to your doctor. It’s highly unlikely to be anything serious but may require a prescription to resolve. 

Stay Away From Toxins

It can be enjoyable to have a glass of wine or a beer, but if you’re drinking too much, then it’s likely that it’ll begin to show on your face. Alcohol contains skin-busting toxins that can dramatically impact its appearance. There are other substances that can cause dry and damaged skin, too, such as caffeine and tobacco. If you’re using these products, then take a look at reducing them or eliminating them entirely. Indeed, many people that give up alcohol for a month typically say that they notice much-improved skin (as well as many other benefits).

Sleep Well

We all know how much better we look when we’re well-rested. On the other hand, if you’ve barely been sleeping, then your skin will show it — those bags under your eyes and grey skin will let you know in no uncertain terms that you need to rest. Of course, the odd sleepless night is normal. But if you’re regularly sleeping poorly, then it’s recommended to make some lifestyle changes that’ll help you to consistently sleep 6 – 8 hours each night. 

Stay Calm 

Finally, remember that stress doesn’t only impact your enjoyment of life — it also impacts your skin. There are plenty of activities you can do that can help you to feel more relaxed, including meditation, yoga, journaling, spending time in nature, and exercising. Do those things, and you’ll be giving your skin the best chance to look at its best, each and every day.

Cheers,
