Today I have another Guest Post from a talented freelancer, Brooke Chaplan. She recently contributed a great style post to SnapGinger.com, and she loves writing, running and hiking, so clearly we have tons in common! Without further ado, here are Brooke’s smooth skin tips!
We all want to have smooth and soft skin. The best way to keep your skin smooth and looking great is to have a proper skincare regimen. Below is a list of essential tips for incorporating into your current schedule.
Cleanse Your Skin
Cleansing your skin will keep it smooth by removing impurities. A dermatologist in Austin recommends you wash your skin twice a day. If you wear makeup, then you want to make sure that you remove it before you go to sleep since makeup can clog your pores and attract acne-causing bacteria.
Exfoliation helps remove flaky, dead skin from the surface and will help it stay smooth and soft. Exfoliation also helps generate more collagen, which is a protein that helps maintain smooth texture. Once a week is sufficient since exfoliating too often can cause dryness.
Moisturizing your skin will not only help keep it hydrated, but will also keep it soft and smooth. It essential to use a high-quality moisturizer with sun protection factor, or SPF. Avoid using moisturizers that have harsh ingredients or too much scent.
The food you eat not only affects your weight, but can also affect your skin. Omega 3 fatty acids and lean protein help your skin retain moisture. Antioxidant nutrients like vitamins A, C and E can help repair damaged skin. Salmon, walnuts, flaxseeds and leafy green vegetables are examples of some of the foods that will help keep your skin healthy.
Sunscreen protects your skin from sunburn and can keep it healthy. The ultraviolet rays from the sun can cause your skin to age faster with wrinkles and sun damage which is why it is important to you to apply sunscreen before going outside.
Drink Plenty Of Water
There are a number of ways you can benefit from drinking water. Smoother, healthier skin is one of those benefits. Skin is more elastic and smooth when it is well-hydrated.
A healthy lifestyle will help keep your skin smooth and looking great. You will need to have a good skincare regimen, which includes moisturizing, exfoliating, and cleansing. You will also need to drink plenty of water and eat healthy. Don’t forget to use sunscreen regularly and take care of yourself physically.
