Skin damage is hard to avoid. Some may even say it is inevitable. As a result, healthy, radiant skin may seem impossible to obtain. However, you can take foolproof steps to repair damaged skin naturally without exposing your skin to harmful chemicals and sulfates.
We at Laur Skin Solutions have found the best ways to help you banish wrinkles, get a radiant glow, and keep your skin supple and soft all year around.
Here are five tips we have put together that you can implement as part of your beauty and skincare routine.
Tip #1: Take care of your stomach
Research shows that underlying gut health issues can manifest on the skin in many ways, from blemishes to flushing. Anything that’s unhealthy for your gut can lead to a microbial imbalance and trigger oxidative stress and inflammatory processes in the gut and throughout the body. If left unchecked, these imbalances can also manifest as skin issues.
Tip #2: Exfoliation
Use a gentle face polish or scrub. Removing the outer layer of excess dead skin cells will help smooth skin texture, increase the absorption rate of your skincare products, and brighten up your complexion. You could either choose from a foam-based face wash with fine exfoliating beads or make a scrub at home with sugar and honey or yogurt (make sure the sugar granules are delicate in texture so as not to tear the skin).
Tip #3: A diet full of antioxidants and vitamin C
Your body needs nutrients to repair damaged skin and restore it to its natural glow. Vitamin C is a collagen agent and an antibacterial ingredient in food. Antioxidant-rich foods carry with them restorative properties. These ingredients should also be used in skincare routines and exfoliating scrubs. When consumed, they can be equally effective. Fruits and vegetables are considered the best sources of antioxidants.
Tip #4: Moisturize
Keeping skin moisturized is one of the quickest ways to have a glowing complexion. Don’t skimp on daily moisturizer, even if you have naturally oily skin, and invest in ingredients proven to hydrate.
*Bonus Tip - Protect your skin from the sun by using SPF every day, without fail, to prevent sun damage.
Tip #5: Don’t pick your skin
This can never be overstated. Once your products are applied, keep your (most likely dirty) hands off of your face. Picking at the skin like pimples, infections, or just itchy areas, causes worsening of the problem and ultimately can lead to infection and scars.
These are just some ways in which you can get started on your skin health journey. Although the road to flawless, supple skin is challenging, you will be well on your way to achieving your skin goals if you follow these simple steps!
