- Double your water intake. Our bodies are made of mostly water so it is essential to stay hydrated for our bodies to function properly. It is important to remember that our skin is our largest organ in the body. Proper hydration not only helps us look and feel good, it helps protect our body. The main function of the skin is to protect the body from environmental hazards, hydration is one of the key components of this protection process. When our skin barrier is protected we are less likely to experience skin problems.
- Eat more fruits and vegetables (organic if possible). Load the body with antioxidants to fight free radicals that can speed up the aging process. Eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, try to get as many colors on your plate as possible.
- Eliminate processed and fast food. If you know your schedule is busy try to plan ahead. Try stopping at the grocery store for a healthy meal instead of pulling through the drive through.
- Take a multivitamin daily. Make sure you are getting enough Folic Acid, Biotin, Vitamin A, Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Vitamin E and zinc.
- Hormones, Hormones play a major role. Lifestyle, Diet & Stress can easily throw our hormone levels out of balance. Try eating more organic foods, getting plenty of exercise, mediation or activities you enjoy to lower stress. See a healthcare professional when necessary.
2. Beauty Sleep is a Real Thing
Our bodies heal themselves while we are sleeping. Good sleep hygiene practice is essential to getting enough REM sleep. This is when our cells are repairing and the body is restoring itself. PLEASE NEVER GO TO SLEEP WITH MAKEUP ON!
3. A Consistent Skincare Routine
In the last 5 years I have shifted my focus from having “perfect” skin to having healthy skin. One because perfect doesn’t exist and we will chase it until the day we die, and secondly healthy skin is plump, firm and hydrated. A healthy complexion is radiant. Much like what we put in our body, what we put on our body is equally as important. Going back to the skin being the largest organ in our body, it absorbs everything we put on it directly into the bloodstream. That is why clean skincare matters. I use my Wild Rose Beauty Skincare routine morning and night without compromise. I prefer skincare treatments that are restorative and healing versus treatments that are harsh and damaging to the skin barrier. I love hydrafacials, redlight therapy and the cooljet pen.
