How to Improve Your Skin in a Flash*

Having amazing skin is a sign of great health. We automatically feel better when our skin looks youthful, smooth, and blemish free. However, most of us aren’t born with that kind of skin. Many of us do get imperfections and blemishes pop up from time to time, and there isn’t always anything we can do about it. That doesn’t mean we can’t try though! Here’s how you can improve your skin in a flash:

Take a Look at Your Diet

It isn’t always the things you’re putting onto your skin that affect the condition. It’s the foods we eat. The things we eat can literally affect us from the inside out, so take a look at your diet. Is there anything you can cut out or replace? Some things will affect people more than others. Many find that dairy products make them spotty. Others find that they break out when they eat chocolate. Remove things from your diet and monitor your skin to see if it works.

Get Plenty of Sleep

The amount of sleep we get can affect our skin in different ways too. Too much, and we may find that our skin becomes puffy. Too little, and we might look sallow and dull. Make sure you’re getting 6-8 hours a night to enjoy an energising day and lovely skin. Some people may need less, others may need a little more. Get yourself into a consistent skin care routine and you’ll soon know what you need.


Change Your Pillowcases

How often do you currently change your pillowcases? If the answer is not very often, this could be contributing to your skin issues. Bacteria from your pillowcases could be transferred back to the skin and give you spots. Make sure you change them often and your skin should become clear in no time.

Create an Effective Routine

Put together an effective skincare routine. You need to know your skin type to do this, so make sure you do some research or see a professional. You can then pick products that suit your skin type. You should cleanse, tone, and moisturise twice a day. Face masks and face exfoliators can be used a few times a week to smooth the skin and get rid of impurities. Make sure you stick to your routine, especially after wearing makeup.

Treat Yourself

Treat yourself every now and again to a skin treatment. Skin rejuvenation treatments are usually painless and will leave you with an amazing result. There are also regular facials, and even treatments like microdermabrasion. Many of these treatments will smooth out lines, get rid of scarring, and moisturise the skin.

Monitor Changes

Skin can change. One season you may have dry, the next it may be combination. This is why it’s important you keep an eye on it and change products if you need to.

Use these tips and your skin will improve quicker than you could have ever imagined. If it doesn’t, there may be an underlying problem. See your doctor to get a proper diagnosis. Thanks for visiting!
