9 Steps to Get Rid of Saggy Skin

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Dry and saggy skin is the breeding ground for wrinkles. If you fail to give it enough attention, you’ll be looking 10 years older before you know it. Try these 9 steps to firm up your facial skin and keep it that way:

Step 1:
Get physical! Make walking and running your new habit. Get up to four days of aerobic exercise every week.  Pushing yourself to the limit causes nutrient-rich blood to be pumped to your brain, heart and other parts of your body. The blood rush unclogs blockages which may have formed over the years. Regularly pumping blood prevents fats from lining and clogging up your arteries.

Step 2:
Bring the benefits of exercising to your face. Learn facial calisthenics to give your facial muscles a nice, relaxing stretch and to tone up as well. Performing this step relaxes your face and improves microcirculation underneath your skin.

Step 3:
Eat a balanced diet. Incorporate plenty of leafy greens which are high in all kinds of vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants. Add fatty fish high in Omega-3 at least three times a week to your diet.  Omega-3’s give your skin a healthy dose of fats and lipids that keep your skin soft, smooth, and supple.Get the full benefits of eating healthy by living an active lifestyle and try to avoid the habit of smoking and drinking. These habits affect your overall health, even smoking can cause hair loss as well.

Step 4:
Never expose your unprotected skin to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Make applying sunscreen a regular part of your routine. Keep all exposed areas of your skin protected throughout the day by reapplying often. UV radiation damages and destroys skin cells in ways you can’t imagine, and it does so very quickly. Though the damage happens in an instant, the effects pile up and show up harshly on your skin when they do.

Step 5:
Employ retinoids into your daily skincare routine. Nothing beats the wrinkle-preventing, wrinkle-reducing, and melanin-inhibiting effects of a regular application of retinoids. Vitamin A, including its derivatives, remains to be the gold standard when it comes to wrinkle care.

Step 6:
Load up on peptides. These short chains of amino acids provide the building blocks for the skin to produce new skin cells, repair damages in the skin matrix, and manufacture layer after layer of newer, younger, and healthier skin.  Products with peptides help speed up the rate of skin cell turnover so that you can enjoy a healthier, brighter complexion sooner.

Step 7:
Add Hyaluronic Acid to your aging skin care regimen. This important skin component is naturally produced by your body but then, it is produced in much lesser quantities as you get older.  Its main beneficial effect on your skin is in keeping moisture levels up and keeping it that way.  With its outstanding ability to hold high amounts of moisture, your skin becomes more elastic, better hydrated, and less prone to wrinkles.

Step 8:
Put on the collagen. As with hyaluronic acid, collagen is naturally produced by your body in diminishing amounts as you age. Make up for lost collagen by deriving it from your topical skin care products as well as from ingested ones, such as collagen drinks.With regular intake or application,collagen helps restore your skin’s firmness, elasticity and suppleness.

Step 9:
After a hard day’s work, give your body the unparalleled therapeutic gift of sleep. Establish your body’s biological clock by getting at least 8 hours of sleep every day.  Keeping to your bedtime trains your body to shift from the protective mode in the morning into a regenerative mode at night.  Your body, your skin included, has the ability to treat, regenerate and rejuvenate damaged and stressed skin.  The only standing order is for you to get sufficient sleep.  So, be wise and hit the sheets early!

Conclusion
Getting a firmer facial skin may sound like a lot of work but, once you employ these healthy skin care habits, you’ll realize that restoring your youthful looking skin was never really out of reach. In many ways, these 9 habits do not only hold advantages for your skin but also benefit the rest of your body.

Clearer Skin Without the Chemicals

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017


2017 has been the year of skincare! More and more people have been ditching extensive makeup routines and trading in their foundation for cleansers. As “the natural look” becomes more popular, there has been a drop in the mainstream chemical-filled beauty products and a demand for their all-natural counterparts.

That said, while topical treatments are important, it’s still far more important to watch what you’re eating if you really want great skin.

Water
When it comes to clear skin, hydration is key. I can’t stress enough how important water is for every organ of the human body.

If you suffer from dry skin or redness/irritation of some sort, make sure you’re drinking at least two litres of water a day. Dry skin will be reduced as long as your body is properly hydrated. It’s best to drink two cups of water before going to bed each night, because over the course of the night, your body naturally becomes dehydrated.

It’s also important to start your day off by drinking water as soon as you wake up to rehydrate yourself. H20 also helps flush toxins from the body, so you’ll have fewer breakouts and clearer skin.

Vitamin C
Do you suffer from dull skin? While exfoliating is important to remove dead skin cells and stimulate blood flow to the face, you won’t have the greatest results if you’re not getting enough vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that slows down the aging process by promoting collagen production and helps treat hyperpigmentation. While vitamin C is a common ingredient in many beauty products, applying it topically can only go so far.

You’ll get optimum results by eating a variety of fruits and vegetables that are high in vitamin C. This way you can nourish from the inside and radiate from the outside. The quality of the vitamin C also will affect the results it has on your skin, for example, vitamin C supplements have not been proven to be an effective source and don’t provide very many health benefits. It’s important to get vitamin C through its natural food form, such as oranges, grapefruits, lemons, bell peppers and kale.

Don’t get me wrong, vitamin C is still great when topically applied. If you’re looking to achieve a more youthful glow to your complexion, you can mix up a simple exfoliator to help remove dead skin cells and nourish your skin. It’s easy and can be done with ingredients you can find in your kitchen.

Vitamin C Exfoliant
● 1 tablespoon brown sugar
● ¾ tablespoon coconut oil or castor oil
● ½ tsp lemon juice

All you need to do is mix the ingredients and gently rub onto damp, clean skin using circular motions and then rinse with warm water. The brown sugar will help scrub away dead skin cells, the oils will help your skin stay moisturized and the lemon juice will help give you a healthy glow, remove impurities and even out your skin tone. Use this scrub twice a week for smooth, clear, healthy looking skin.

Fats
Unfortunately, fats are a controversial topic when it comes to health. As with most things in life, moderation is key and there are definitely healthy and unhealthy fats.

When it comes down to unhealthy fats, steer clear of fried foods, processed foods and low quality oils. These can trigger inflammation in the body, meaning redness in the skin and breakouts, yikes!

Luckily, there are so many healthy fats you can incorporate into your diet for optimum health. Olive oil, salmon and avocado are all examples of healthy fats. Avocados in particular work wonders for your skin. Not only do they help hydrate your skin, but they also are high in carotenoids, an antioxidant that helps protect against aging! They are also high in vitamin C and E, which are essential for healthy skin. You can mix avocado into smoothies, spread it on toast or use it for a face mask. Keep in mind, even though they are good for you, moderation should still be exercised.

If you’re looking for a face mask to help soothe dry, flaky skin or redness/irritation, you can mix up a DIY face mask, yet again, using nothing but ingredients found in your kitchen! It doesn’t get more natural than this.

Avocado Face Mask
● ½ avocado, pitted and mashed
● 1 tbsp olive oil
● 1 tbsp lemon juice

Apply this mask onto clean skin and leave for 10 minutes, or until dry. Once it’s dry, gently rinse off with warm water to reveal glowing skin.

While these components certainly play a huge role in skin health, it’s important to make sure you’re getting a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and getting enough sleep if you want clear and healthy skin. Make sure you’re still cleansing your skin daily to prevent clogged pores and switch to natural skincare products when possible, but always be mindful of what you eat.
