We often blame external factors for our skin problems...that's easy isn't it ?
The truth is, it begins with a good sleep routine, we don't call it beauty sleep for nothing do we ?
What's the first thing we do upon waking ? We use the lav & do a quick check in the mirror to see how we are looking, hopefully rested after a decent 7+ hours...anything less per night, truly shows. A sleep deficit will creep up on you which is horrid.
It's that reflection once again. It effects all age groups, from zits to mature skin !
We tend to head over to the cosmetic counter & look for all sorts of answers ! A face full of make up to cover up ?..don't kid yourself or get me wrong, I use make up & enjoy doing so but you will look far better if the very canvas of your beauty, your skin is clear & radiant. Nothing replaces a beautiful complexion ! Men think oh lets have a blob of my partners cream in the bathroom... there is no getting away from it ! We all like to look our best !
Ever wondered why you look so good when you return from your hols ? It's the rehydration, the carefully chosen colourful foods, the sleep etc.
A few weeks later you wonder why you aren't glowing still ?
Nothing replaces a change in pace but that's just one aspect.
Try eating all those yummy rainbow foods for a few weeks after your hols & trust me you will notice that the glow remains ! Don't feel guilty...we all deserve the me time the water & controlled intake of food. Of course do check with your doctor if you aren't sure, but we all know if we've been eating a load of rubbish & sugar rush foods.
Reduce sugar & salt intake...practice a calm hour before bed, restrict alcohol...& screen time...instead of scrolling scrolling scrolling, go for a long walk at a time that you can work into your daily routine. Install a step counter, it helps slims the waist & getting outside is good for capturing your vit D, the happy vitamin.
We all have the same 24 hours a day, use yours wisely !
We really believe we are all born beautiful but it takes work effort & good skincare.
All in all it's the discipline that you benefit from & your skin will smile straight back at you !
