I’m 28, and my skin is something I’ve really started to take care of over the past several years. I notice when I keep these 5 things in balance, my skin stays in balance too!
5 Ways To Care For Your Skin
Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces every day
I always keep a glass of water nearby me when I’m at work or home. I also add Spectralyte to it throughout the day for its added trace minerals and electrolytes. It’s so beneficial.
Aim for 8-10 hours of sleep each night
Going to bed at 10pm is ideal for me, as I can feel a real difference in my day if I don’t get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. Our bodies need sleep to repair itself and our skin is the largest organ of our body.
Eat your fats and limit your sugar
Omega-3s are so beneficial and I get them in every single day by taking my Abundant Brain/Omegas in the morning. You can order them yourself (without even being a client!) by registering and logging in your own account + get a 10% discount. I’ve also cut out sugar in my diet and have noticed a real difference in my day-to-day!
Break a sweat and get your heart rate up!
Increased blood flow through exercise helps nourish our skin cells and keep them vital. "Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to all working cells throughout the body, including the skin." When I have time each morning, I love getting outside and going for a walk/run! It’s an awesome way to start my day. I also really enjoy lifting weights and pushing myself at the gym. You never regret a workout + that awesome after-glow effect.
Moisturize every day and night
I moisturize with Tate’s lotion as soon as I get out of the shower and try to wash my face daily. Sunlight is crucial for getting our vitamin D, but after 20-30 minutes in the sun, I always apply SPF! Too much sun can cause premature wrinkles.
