Tackle your complexion worries

The glossy magazines are awash with models sporting glowing complexions & no matter how hard you try, you just cannot mimic their results. The reasons are fairly simple… those images are mere instants constructed by an entire stylist team + photoshop…but healthy skin does exist and is possible. So fear not, we have ways to counter-act the daily stressors that affect your skin. Sexy, Elegant & Healthy Skin is perfect for Valentine’s month don’t you think?

Let’s start with the easy steps

Lifestyle: you are possibly not drinking enough water, or your make-up of choice is possibly drying out your skin, which even your cleanser is capable of. How often you exfoliate also plays are role, it can be done too often or too little. These are extremely common reasons for a dull complexion and are easily fixed by making correct lifestyle choices. Here are some tips:

  1. Drinking enough water – don’t fall into the trap of thinking that dehydration is a quick & easy fix. Your body has water requirements and to improve your hydration levels you do need to go above & beyond. Simply drinking enough daily is all you need but it takes discipline to ensure you are sufficiently hydrated. Your skin will love you for it.
  2. Showing your stress? – Taking a moment to breath can be great for your mood and in turn for your skin. Elevated stress levels increase cortisol levels in your skin & this can negatively impact your visible complexion. That 5-minute break might be all your skin needs to get the blood flowing again to allow your true colours to shine.
  3. Sleep more – the day’s events take its toll, this is obvious… but it is important to remember that sleep is your body’s restorative time and your skin falls into this category. Make sure to get enough sleep to allow your skin cells to completely revive & rejuvenate for the next day, you will be amazed at how an extra hour on your pillow can positively affect your visible age & complexion.
