Here at Luxiny, we are always conscious of how important it is to take great care of our skin. It’s our largest organ and we often pay less attention to it than our hair, which is made up of keratinized cells. Our skin is a living organ that deserves our time and attention. The options available to take care of our skin can seem overwhelming at first, but we’ve put together a list of what we consider the most effective ones.
- Ditch the smoking.
There are so many reasons to do this for your overall health, but it takes a serious toll on your skin as well. Smoking narrows the blood vessels that are located close to the surface of the skin. This reduces the flow of blood throughout the body and deprives the skin and the rest of your body of oxygen and nutrients that it needs. This will inevitably lead to the reduction in your body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin, the molecules that give your skin natural elasticity.
- Check-in with your stress levels.
Stress is mentally exhausting, we know. But are you aware of the havoc it can wreak on your body physically too? It can make your skin more sensitive to the foods that you eat, which will lead to breakouts, less sleep, and cause you to look more tired and haggard. Make sure that you’re always making time for some self-care in order to keep yourself in a healthy state of mind.
- Get enough sleep.
Just like stress can cause you to get less sleep, less sleep can also cause you to become more stress on your body. Our bodies do most of our reparative work while we sleep. When your body is deprived of a healthy amount of sleep, it misses out on the opportunity to regenerate skin, muscles, blood, and brain cells.
- Eat a balanced diet and drink your water.
Providing your body with the nutrients and hydration that it needs on a molecular and cellular level will create results you can’t always get from just using topicals. It is providing your body with nourishment and support from the inside out. A bonus is that it will also help you feel your best, not just look your best!
- Protect your skin from the sun.
The sun can be harsh on or skin. A lot of sun exposure can cause wrinkles and age spots, and it can also increase your odds of developing skin cancer. Therefore, it is so important to use sunscreen daily and it should be at least SPF 15. It is also best to avoid the sun from 10am to 2pm if you can, when the sun is at its highest peak.
- Develop and stick to a daily skincare routine.
Lastly, developing a daily skincare routine using Luxiny’s products can both help prevent the skin from showing signs of aging and help reverse the damage that has already been done. Of course, we mean it when we say daily though. Only using our products periodically won’t help you in the long run.
These are just a few suggestions that we put together with the most effective skincare tips we know of. There is so much more you can do to care for your skin, but we understand that life gets busy and it can be difficult to keep up with. Needless to say, we tried to keep it simple in this article.
