The Latest Beauty Trends for Radiant Skin
May 9, 2019
Your skin is the largest organ in your body but, because it’s not a vital organ it is last to receive necessary nutrients and first to be deprived. Meaning.. your age, lifestyle and any bad habits you’ve picked up along the way show through your skin. Be sure to provide your skin with all the essentials it needs to keep you looking your best at any age. Here are the latest beauty trends, tips and ingredients to protect, repair, moisturize and firm!
Every cell in your body needs water so it is no surprise that staying hydrated does wonders for skin cells. Drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses a day replenishes the skin, increases elasticity, flushes toxins out of the skin and supports healthy circulation.
Dehydrated skin sends signals to your glands to produce more oil. Staying hydrated will help your skin produce a balance of oil your skin needs to serve its purpose.
Provide the Right Nutrients
This free radical scavenger can help protect against UV damage that breaks down your collagen, support your skins structure and fight the natural signs of aging. It also stimulates new cells to produce, creating a barrier from harmful, environmental irritants.
Vitamin C is essential to the production of collagen and elastin, the delicate connective tissue that gives structure, strength and stretch to your skin. This vitamin is also a powerful antioxidant that prevents oxidative damage and protects your skin cells. Increasing your intake of vitamin C can improve resistance to UV rays, help fight the natural signs of aging, help the body retain water and help combat inflammation.
Vitamin K is essential to healthy skin for several reasons. It helps your body to produce new skin cells, helps reverse the signs of aging, aids in the body’s healing processes, reduces inflammation and is involved in maintaining healthy blood vessels especially for dark circles under the eyes.
Vitamin D is an important component of skin protection and rejuvenation playing a major role in skin cell growth, protection, maintenance and repair.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
This ingredient acts as a universal antioxidant because it can penetrate all parts of our skin cells. Protecting from free radicals, alpha lipoic acid can not only fight aging but protect from future damage as well.
This oil is rich in vitamin E, zinc, B-complex vitamins and more. Not only will this hydrate and retain that moisture throughout your day, it is packed with nutrients to fully nourish your skin.
It’s Called Beauty Rest for a Reason
Getting a good night’s rest recharges and rejuvenates your body as well as your skin. While you sleep, HGH and melatonin are released to repair the daily wear and teary our skin goes through and give it some protection. When you sleep, your internal temperature and the stress hormone, cortisol, decrease providing an ideal environment for full skin renewal and rejuvenation.
Exercise increases blood flow which helps nourish skin cells and flush toxins and free radicals away. Increased blood flow also means increased oxygen flow providing that natural glow. It also decreases stress, which in turn affect hormones that contribute to skin maintenance. Getting your energy out will ensure a great night’s sleep, too!
Follow a daily regimen that is best for you
While these tips contribute to healthy skin, it is still important to find a daily routine tailored to your skin’s needs.
Throughout the day you are exposed to pollutants, dirt, bacteria and other skin damaging substances, making it extremely important to use a cleanser twice daily (once in the morning and once at night).
A skin toner can be added to remove excess dirt, makeup, oil and dead skin cells.
After your skin is fresh and clean, it’s time to restore moisture. Many people reach for their favorite lotion however, serums have been getting a lot of attention lately. Serums have smaller molecules that allows active ingredients to penetrate deeper in the skin. Search for a serum packed with ingredients including but not limited to vitamin c, hyaluronic acids, antioxidants and retinols.
In addition to keeping your skin clean and moisturized, there are other things you can do to protect and maintain healthy skin. Include an extra revitalizing vitamin cream for a smooth and nourished complexion. If your skin is usually dry, use a hydrating mist as a quick fix throughout your day.
