Want healthier-looking skin but have no idea where to start? You will be surprised that some of the best things you can do are actually simple habits you can adopt for better skin. Here are 5 useful habits that will greatly improve the condition of your skin.
1. ADD L-ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C) TO YOUR SKIN’S DAILY DIET
Vitamin C is a vital ingredient for skin health. Oral and topical Vitamin C have been shown to be beneficial for skin cells, and it helps our skin’s ability to make collagen. Vitamin C has also been demonstrated in some studies to help prevent and even treat sun-induced photodamage.
Citrine Pure Vitamin C Elixir paired with Pure Vitamin C Powder mixed by yourself so you get the freshest, purest form of topical vitamin C every time. Helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by fighting free radicals and brightens dull complexions over time.
2. ALWAYS APPLY SUNSCREEN
Depletion of the ozone layer has increased our risk of sun damage from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Most of us are familiar with the fact the skin can be burnt by the sun (UVB rays) but did you know that the sun also has UVA rays which does not burn skin but causes pigmentation spots and darkens the skin, and accelerates the formation of fine lines and wrinkles?
If applying pastey, white physical sunscreens bother you, try Guardian Angel, a wash-off sunscreen. This new ionic technology gives SPF30 protection that is water-resistant and washes off in the shower without any greasy feel on the skin. There is also a version available for the body known as Bodyguard.
3. LOOK INTO SKIN NUTRITION
Skin food comes in terms of vitamins. For example, Vitamins C, E and A can reduce the damage caused by free radicals, harmful byproducts in the environment due to the sun, smoke and pollution. Apart from eating them through a variety of fruits and vegetables, you can apply them topically. Try a vitamin-infused facial such as Vitamin Therapy which starts with cleansing and exfoliation to prep skin, and the most suitable vitamins are then applied to and sealed in with a deep infusion mask to restore the essential elements to your skin.
4. REVISIT THE BASICS
When the skin appears to be in an upheaval, it might be a good time to revisit the basics and look into your cleansing routine. Deep cleansing facials exfoliate and frees the skin from dead skin cells, oil and other impurities. They also remove toxins the might have built up and refresh the skin.
Clean Slate is a facial sextet of 6 alternating Clear Blue and Deep Deep Clean facials created by skin doctors. Using a combination of deep cleansing techniques and LED blue light which has been shown to kill acne-causing bacteria, it is popular for those who need a more thorough skin purging routine such as acne or oily, clogged skin.
5. GO WITH LIGHT THERAPY FOR GLOW
Feeling like your skin is always masked by a layer of grey which makes your skin a couple of shades darker? In this case, try the Broadband Light (BBL) therapy, which harnesses the power of light, gently targeting and erasing pigment irregularities on the face, eliminating sun spots, lightening acne scars and facial redness. Because it also helps to boost collagen production, people often notice a fresher and more youthful appearance immediately after.
